Hill’s Methodology: A Quest for the Formula

Hill, an author and salesperson was on a journey of 20 years to interview many of the most influential individuals of his day, such as Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. His aim was to find the universal principles behind their success and then distill them into a practical guide for the masses. The aim was to simplify the universal principles that led to their success and turn them into a book that could be used by everyone. The structure “Think and Grow Rich” was built on 13 fundamental principles, including desire, faith and autosuggestion. It also includes the latest knowledge and a structured plan.

Where “Think and become rich” falls short

  • A lack of nuance, oversimplification The book the focus is on individuals’ efforts and unwavering belief, that can overlook external factors, like access to resources and privileges. It can be said that this method is over simplified and overlooks the complexity of the process of achieving success.
  • Insufficient Evidence from the scientific community and anecdotal proof: Although Hill’s personal stories and interviews are fascinating, they lack the rigor and rigor needed for scientific research. This raises some questions about the generalizability of his findings and if the methods he proposes are effective.
