A Quest for the Formula: Hill’s Methodology

Hill, journalist, salesman and author started a journey of 20 years in which he interviewed the most successful people of the day like Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. His objective? He set out to find the universal principles that determine their success and break the principles into a concise guide for everyone. The result was a framework called “Think and Grow Rich” that is built around 13 fundamental principles. They are based on belief, desire, autosuggestion (auto-suggesting), specialized information, planned planning and the power of the subconscious mind.

Insecurities and Skepticism What’s the problem “Think and Get Rich” isn’t enough

  • Excessive Simplicity and Lack of nuance The emphasis placed on individual effort, unwavering faith and the importance of external influences such as advantages, resources and unfairness in the system can result in an oversimplification of success. Some criticize this method for being simplistic and ignoring real-world complexities.
  • Anecdotal evidence and Lack of scientific support: While Hill’s use of personal stories, interviews and other forms of anecdotal evidence are captivating but it is not backed by the scientific rigor that comes with research. There are serious concerns about the generalizability his findings as well as the effectiveness of his proposed methodologies.
  • Get Rich Quick Mentality: According to critics the book’s emphasis on wealth and material success could create a “get rich quick” mentality that can lead people to become obsessed with money.
