A Quest for the Formula: Hill’s Methodology

Hill, an author and salesperson, embarked on a journey of 20 years to interview some of the most successful people in his time, including Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell. The goal of Hill is: His goal? To discover the universal factors that drive their success and distill these into a helpful guide for the general public. The result was a framework called “Think And Grow Rich” that is built on 13 key principles. They are based on belief, desire autosuggestion (auto-suggesting) specific information, planned planning and the power of the subconscious mind.

  • Anecdotal Evidence and Lack of Research Support: The reliance of Hill’s findings on his personal experiences and conversations is persuasive however it is not backed by the rigorousness of scientific research. This raises serious questions about the generalizability his findings and the efficacy of his methods.
  • “Get Rich Quickly” Mental state: Critics claim that the book’s focus on success in the material realm, wealth and money could encourage a “get wealthy quick” mentality. This can result in unhealthy obsessions and an inability to see other aspects of satisfaction.
