A Quest for the Formula: Hill’s Methodology

Hill who was a journalist as well as a salesman began a twenty-year journey where he interviewed many of the most influential people of the day and included Andrew Carnegie Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell. His aim was to find the universal underlying principles that led to their success and distill them into a practical guide for all. His aim? To distill universal principles that support their success into a simple and easy-to-follow guide. This resulted in a framework dubbed “Think And Grow Rich” that is built on 13 key principles. They are based on the power of belief, desire and autosuggestion (auto-suggesting) and specialized information, organized planning, and the power subconscious mind.

Insecurities and Skepticism: Where “Think and Get Rich” isn’t enough

  • Oversimplification and Lack of nuance The focus of the book on individual effort and unwavering belief can sometimes overlook the role of external factors that contribute to success, such as privilege, access to resources, and the systemic inequality. The oversimplified approach is criticized as ignoring the reality of success in life.
  • Anecdotal Evidence, and Lack of Scientific Support: Hill’s reliance on personal stories and conversations, while entertaining however, is not backed by research conducted by scientists. This raises questions regarding the generalizability and efficacy of Hill’s proposed methods.
  • Get Rich Quick: Many critics claim that the book is promoting the “get rich quickly” mindset. They argue this can lead to unhealthy obsessions about financial gain and depriving oneself of personal fulfillment.
