Hill’s Methodology: a Quest for the Formula

Hill who was a journalist as well as a salesman, embarked on a 20-year trip in which he questioned some of the most famous people of that time and included Andrew Carnegie Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell. His objective? His objective was to distill universal concepts that support their success into a simple guide. The result was a framework known as “Think and Grow Rich” that is built around 13 fundamental principles. They include belief, desire, autosuggestion (auto-suggesting) and specialized information, organized planning and the power of the subconscious mind.

Where “Think and become rich” does not meet the mark

  • Oversimplification, Lack of nuance Focusing on the person’s work and their beliefs it is easy to ignore external factors that affect the successFor example, access to resources, privileges, and systemic disparities. Some criticize this approach for being overly simplistic, and for ignoring the realities of life.
  • Anecdotal Information and Lack of Research Support: The reliance of Hill’s research on his own experiences and interviews is compelling however it is not backed by the rigor associated with scientific research. It raises questions as to whether his findings are generalizable and if his proposed methods work.
  • Get Rich Quick Mentality: According to critics, the book’s emphasis of money and material success may encourage a “get rich quick” mentality that could cause people to become obsessed with money.
