To discover the universal factors that drive their success, and then distill them into a practical guide to the general public. The result was a framework called “Think and Grow Rich” that is founded on 13 core principles. They are based on the power of belief, desire autosuggestion (auto-suggesting) specific information, organized planning, and the power of the subconscious mind.
