Hill Methodology: The Quest for the Formula

Hill, a writer, journalist and salesman started a journey of 20 years interviewing the most successful individuals of the day like Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. The goal of his research was to discover the universal principles that underlie their success and distill the principles into a practical guide for the masses. His goal was to distill the universal principles behind their success and turn them into a guide that could be utilized by all. This resulted in a framework known as “Think and Grow Rich” that is built around 13 fundamental principles. These include belief, desire autosuggestion (auto-suggesting), specialized information, organized planning, and the power subconscious mind.

Skepticism and weaknesses: Where “Think and become Rich” fails

  • Insufficient Scientific Support and Anecdotal Proof: Although Hill’s personal stories and interviews are fascinating but they are not backed by the rigor and rigor required for research in the scientific field. This raises some questions about the validity of his findings and if his proposed methods work.
  • “Get Rich Quickly” Mindset: Critics claim that the book’s emphasis on success in the material realm, wealth and money may encourage a “get wealthy quickly” mindset. This can cause unhealthy obsessions as well as a disregard for other aspects of satisfaction.
