There are always seven seas to learn from any single book being whatever the genre. Think and grow rich- a self-help, motivational, finance and investment book is meant to teach you a heck of a lot of things!
Let me mention a few in a shortlist.
- Think and focus only and only on your success. Now, this statement does not want you to be selfish or anything, but being focused on what you want to do is one of the first steps to success in any field/business.
- The world is filled with an abundance of opportunity which the dreamers of the past never know. A burning desire to be and to do is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. Dreams are not born of indifference, laziness, or lack of ambition.
- Faith is the eternal elixir that gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought. Faith is the starting point of all accumulation of riches! Faith is the basis of all miracles and mysteries that the rules of science cannot analyze! Faith is the only known antidote to failure.
- Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. One of the other must dominate. It is your responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence in your mind.
