Hill’s Methodology: A Quest for the Formula

Hill, writer, journalist, and salesman started a journey of 20 years in which he interviewed the most successful individuals in his time like Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. His goal? His aim was to discover the universal laws that underlie their success and then distill them down into a simple guide for anyone to follow. The result is “Think, Grow Rich,” that is a framework based on thirteen core principles.

Where “Think and become rich” falls short

  • Oversimplification, and lack of Nuance In focusing on an person’s work and their beliefs, this book can overlook the external factors that can affect successFor example, privilege, access to resources and systemic disparities. It is possible to say that this method is over simplified and does not take into account the complexity involved in the process of achieving success.
  • Anecdotal Evidence and Lack of Scientific Basis: Hill’s reliance on personal stories and interviews, while captivating but does not reflect the rigorousness of research conducted by scientists. It raises doubts about the generalizability, and efficiency of Hill’s suggested methods.
  • The “Get Rich Quick” Mentality: Critics argue that the book’s emphasis on the material and wealth can foster the “get rich quickly” mindset, which could lead to an unhealthy obsession with money, and neglecting the other elements of personal fulfillment.
