Hill Methodology: The Quest for the Formula

Hill, a journalist, salesman and author, began a journey of 20 years in which he interviewed the most successful people in his time like Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. His aim was to find the universal principles that underlie their success and distill the principles into a practical guide for the masses. His goal was to uncover the universal principles that determine their success and then distill them into a straightforward guide for anyone to follow. The result was the framework “Think & Grow Rich”, which is based on 13 fundamentalsThese are based on desire, trust in autosuggestion and in-depth knowledge.

Where “Think and become rich” isn’t enough

  • Overly Simplicity and Lack of nuance The focus on the individual’s efforts, unwavering faith, and the importance of external influences such as privileges, resources, and systemic injustices could lead to an oversimplified definition of success. Some criticize this approach for being overly simplistic, and for ignoring the realities of life.
  • Anecdotal Evidence, and Lack of Scientific Backing: Hill’s reliance on personal anecdotes and interviews,while captivating however, is not backed by research conducted by scientists. This raises doubts about the generalizability of his findings, as well as the effectiveness of his proposed methodological approach.
  • “Get Rich Quickly” Mental state: Critics claim that the book’s emphasis on success in the material realm, wealth and money could incite the “get wealthy quick” mentality. This can cause unhealthy obsessions as well as the neglect of other aspects of satisfaction.
