Think and Grow Rich

The Hidden Secret in Think and Grow Rich – Pick The Brain Exclusive Offer

I read Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich a few years ago and loved it. The book introduced me to a number of life-changing concepts, so I was hardly surprised when I later learned it is the bestselling success book of all time. There was, however, one thing I didn’t take away from the book: a clear understanding of what Napoleon Hill refers to as the “hidden secret” in his book.

If you have read Think and Grow Rich you will know there are numerous mentions of this hidden secret. In fact, Napoleon Hill offers the following teaser in the book’s introduction:

“In every chapter of this book, mention has been made of the money-making secret which has made fortunes for more than five hundred exceedingly wealthy whom I carefully analyzed over a long period of years.”

I was therefore very happy when I recently received a copy of Brian Kim’s e-book The Hidden Secret in Think and Grow Rich. Would my curiosity finally be satisfied? I hoped so, but I must admit I was also worried that the secret Brian would identify would be a big let-down. I believe my thoughts were: “Please don’t be the Law of Attraction!”

What’s the Book About?

Brian doesn’t waste any time in his book, identifying what the secret is at the very start of Chapter 1. I’m happy to say it is not the Law of Attraction.

As previously noted, the secret is said to appear in every chapter of Think and Grow Rich. Brian is understandably keen to prove the secret he has identified is what Napoleon Hill had in mind. He devotes the second chapter to going through Think and Grow Rich chapter by chapter, pinpointing exactly where the secret is mentioned. Assuming you have read the book, you should find some satisfaction to going “Aha! That’s where it is!” I think you will also be more than convinced that Brian has indeed correctly identified the hidden secret.  The rest of the book goes into detail about how you can use the secret to obtain whatever it is you desire in life.

One thing I noticed is that there is some repetition in the book. However, I think this was a conscious decision on Brian’s part to make sure the reader fully comes to grip with the message of the book. As he says in the book, one common fault of success books is they ‘pump’ you up and that’s where it ends. The Hidden Secret in Think and Grow Rich is designed to forever change you way you approach a goal or desire.

Why Buy the Book

I highly recommend this e-book to people who have read Think and Grow Rich. If you haven’t read this classic, Brian has included a copy of this book in PDF format free with the purchase of his book.

Now, those of you who have read Think and Grow Rich may be wondering whether or not this book is worth your hard-earned cash. “Can Brian Kim really tell me anything new about success that Napoleon Hill hasn’t?” is what you may be thinking.

Well, the book succeeded in satisfying my curiosity about what Napoleon Hill refers to as the hidden secret, but it also did far more than this. I believe the book’s real value is that it helps everything you have read about self-improvement and personal development come together and click into place.

Think of success as a puzzle. We are all familiar with many of the pieces of this puzzle, principles such as courage, confidence, hard work, persistence, etc….. What is not so clear to many of us is how these pieces fit together to form the puzzle. Brian has done an incredible job in this book of giving the reader both the big picture, as well as a detailed process for making your deepest desires become reality.

The book is a healthy 122 pages, and Brian has also generously included two bonuses: a special report called The Three Biggest Mistakes People Make When Using the Hidden Secret in Think and Grow Rich and a workbook that accompanies the book bundled up as a special offer for Pick The Brain readers.

    Hi

    Sounds interesting. I read in one of Esther Hicks’ books that Think & Grow Rich was edited significantly before publishing. In fact 37 accounts of the word “vibration” were removed.

    Makes you think if something was being hidden…

    Hello,

    so it is the Law of Attraction…?

    @Peter
    And why isn’t it the Law of Attraction?

    I just recently began to deal with The Secret.

    regards

  • http://themasterssecretkey.com Secret Key Candace

    Thanks for the advice. I will maybe look into it. I really preferred the secret.

  • Becky

    I can’t believe that I have never heard of these two books. I pride myself in reading all the latest and greatest self-improvement books, and in fact just finished one tonight (“Wrestling With the Goddess,” by Azeem Kayum) before getting online tonight. I am so glad that I found out about these. Thanks for the great tip.

  • Jen

    Well, if it’s so great, he should post a sample chapter and attract buyers via quality instead of content-less testimonials. In this way, it sounds like a typical MLM scheme to me. The book is praised, but there’s not one word about the actual content of the book.

    The original Think And Grow Rich is certainly great, no doubt about it…

    • http://www.pickthebrain.com Peter | Pick The Brain

      Hi Jen,

      I agree, it’s always nice to have a preview copy to look at. It’s too late to set one up for this deal, but I’ll keep that in mind for the future.

  • Chris

    Having read the original Think and Grow Rich I believe the secret is quite self-explanatory.

    However, I really suspect that unless you’re ready, and willing to recieve, then it doesn’t matter how many times it is explained to you by someone else, you’ll still not fully ‘get-it’.

  • http://www.iqleap.com/ Karn P.

    Wow, very interesting book title. Looks like a book that I should order from amazon.

    Then, who knows, I might make a blog post of my own.

  • http://www.hephotos.blogspot.com hakki

    The net is full of law of attraction books. I think these work for the writers. Do you know anybody get rich readings these type of books.?

  • e

    What the heck?!

    If I remember right, the “hidden secret” is typed in all-caps. And bolded. And repeated. Repeatedly.

    And if you still don’t get it, you can read about it even more in Napoleon Hill’s other books.

    Brian, are you proud of selling this?

    I can see that many people are suspicious. You should be as there are a ton of typical self help books. HOWEVER, with that said, I’d like to say that I’m a huge fan of Brian’s work. If you are hesitant to buy the book, visit his website, briankim.net. (A hint from a long time BrianKim fan: go to briankim.net/archives and you can take a look through all his previous posts without subscribing to the site). I share this because I know that once you read through the posts, you’ll WANT to subscribe. I definitely recommend the book. His writing style is simple and straight to the point. Just check out his blog first and if you like his style, you won’t regret buying the book. I absolutely loved it.

  • SNIP

    LOL, ok enough of this website. Read TWO articles, who’s gonna pay me for my wasted time???

  • http://sobregadgets.com/ StephanJade

    Great blog as for me. I’d like to read more about that matter. Thnx for giving that data.

  • Amy

    Let me get this straight. Hill says, in his book’s introduction, that it will teach you a certain secret. Then, even when you read the entire book, you cannot find the secret?? Then ANOTHER guy has to write an entire book just to tell you what the secret is in the first book? Then, you write this article, TITLED “The Hidden Secret in Think and Grow Rich,” and STILL don’t mention what the secret is? Is this like the Loch Ness Monster or something? I know it’s a marketing trick to promise hidden secrets, but DUDE, you have to also deliver, not just keep stretching out the mystery, like on “Lost” or “Twin Peaks.”

    • Wellington

      What a crock. If it is a secret the reason is that you should not know. So let us all respect Nappy and leave him with his secret. The real secret is that he made a lot of money of a lot of vulnerable folk.

      Amy is spot on. Well done Amy.

    What a great example of a horrible, biased post

    You become what you think about most of the time.

  • ktn

    Every great idea begins with a THOUGHT. Then, an action plan to put that thought into reality. That’s the essence of Think & Grow Rich. Read the book and that’s all you’ll need. No need to buy The Hidden Secret of Think and Grow Rich.

  • http://www.forgottonlawsofsuccess.com Jon Hollinshead

    First of all a great Blog and thread folks.As a student of Bob proctors ‘The science of getting rich’series I can only defend the Napoleon Hill Book Think and grow rich. It has worked for me many times over. The reality I think is this. Firstly, many folk do NOT follow what is advised TO THE LETTER.Many people follow 99% of the advice that suites them and then wonder why their lives and circumstances don’t change. A bit like building a bridge that’s 99% complete. The secret from my understanding is that we bacome and GET what we think about ALL of the time.Lots of people have made lots of money teaching people how to become wealthy when they themselves are not wealthy.The self improvement market is a thriving industry as many people seek to make money from those who are desperate to self improve so the trick is to read books and apply information ONLY from those who have made it in life and are truly altruistic and want to pull others up with them.I would strongly advise all my friends and family (and you) to buy 4 books. Think and Grow Rich (Napoleon Hill), The 11 Forgotton Laws of Success(Bob Proctor), and How To Win Friends & Influence People (Dale Carnegie) and Outliers (see amazon), APPLY then what they teach EVERY DAY.The reality is this; If we want things to change in our lives then we MUST change too and NEVER quit trying.Think good things folks and good thing happen to you..trust me on this.I was bankrupt 7 years ago and had nothing to lose by trying out think and grow rich and boy was I glad I did. I thought that at that point in my life my way just didn’t work so in blind FAITH I applied what I learnt in the above books and now have 6 streams of income…and I am getting better every day. Sadly many people are half hearted when they try these priciples advised in the books above and then moan when things don’t work. They Do IF you work them. Figh on.Falling down in life is only important if it’s the last time you try to walk.

      Nice thoughts. I appreciate John Hollinshead’s commentary on these posts. Action is vital!

  • http://www.powerofapositivemind.com Ryan Critchett

    Great Article! I have read think and grow rich twice, and still refer to it at least once a week. I think Napoleon’s message is quite clear, for those of who are conscious of it.

  • http:/www.yuenmethod.com/ Pain Elimination

    Thanks fr the review.It helps to know what should be food for mind before we pick it up.We must read such philosophies to enrich the mind and energize it through the daily course of mundane living.

  • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/juddha-fitzgerald Juddha Fitzgerald

    Think and Grow Rich is one of the VERY FEW books that promises to help you determine Who you want to become? What it is you want to do? When it‘s going to happen? Why THE MISSION IS POSSIBLE? And how you’re going to attain it? All through the aid and application of the “unknown and unused knowledge and power” they termed the “Carnegie Secret.”

    I loved the original book, though it isn’t until I read it 3 times and used videos made about the book, to fully comprehend its principles, and fully apply them, daily.

    Check http://www.thesecretvideos.tv to fully understand the science of Thing and Grow Rich. Hill is an amazing man indeed!

    Cheers, Nick

    Thank you for the review Peter. It’s frequently beneficial to view personal or professional growth and success from different perspectives. Not every approach triggers action or motivates each person in the same way so it’s good to have a variety of tools available to us.

    House online business owners all across the globe are quietly creating yearly six-figure incomes. Quite a few of them make six-figures by helping aspiring entrepreneurs begin their path to their own six-figures. What a wonderful idea!

  • http://www.askolivertausend.com/ Oliver Tausend

    Hi Peter,

    thanks for sharing your insights. It is truly an amazing book. As we grow from reading to reading, it changes as well because we have become another person. It amazes me that people expect results from reading it once and reading it alone. It has to be read and discussed together with a loving and harmonious mastermind group. And everybody who reads it should commit to reading it as often as it is necessary.

    Take care

    Oliver

  • Jim

    So the ‘secret’ is there is no secret ! Or the secret to get rich is to write a book to tell people the secret about the secret of getting rich, got it ?

  • Karen Liana

    Napolean Hill is one of the greatest writers of all time when it comes to his book, Think And Grow Rich. He doesn’t leave anything to the imagination .. it is all there in black and white.

    I read this post by the writer who clearly is making his best effort to promote the book of another writer who takes Napolean Rich’ writing and tells the reader to read his book, and learn more.

    To try to capitalize on a historic and truly phenomenol international author’s book by writing this garbage is something I don’t quite understand, and Clemens and Kim can keep on grasping at straws and making themselves look like intellects when the concept of Think And Grow Rich is clear.

  • Neil

    The secret is simple: “know what it is that you want”. Yes, it’s that simple. Let me say it again “KNOW WHAT YOU WANT”…….until you know what you want, nothing’s happening, plain and simple. Once you sit down and figure what you want, only then does Napolean Hill’s book or any other book for that matter make you rich!

    It’s talked about in the 1st chapter.

    Don’t waste money on these scammers trying to tell you it’s anything else, it ain’t. They just want your money.

    If you have read the book think and grow rich and fully grasp the concept Mr hill IS IN FACT TALKING ABOUT THE LAW OF ATTRACTION. how you came to the conclusion he is not is mind boggling you must read the older versions closest to 1937 to get the complete intended information not simply the modern versions of the book. those who wish to know what the secret is must read and put into action the principles outlined in Mr hills book. these principles take much dedication faith desire and persistence to make impact in your own experiences.

      I apologize I am in fact wrong I have confused it being the actual Loa rather it works in conjunction with the Loa again my apologies

    Here’s the deal: this is a very well written article about this guy’s book. It is also an advertisement since as you can see there is an affiliate link. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but it helps put things into context whether or not LOA plays in or not…

    i have read , applied, and succeeded using this books principle’s. however, once i stopped applying the techniques-slowly over time- i lost my successes. in a nutshell, i had lost my DESIRE and a Clear and Definite Purpose, and ultimately my BELIEF in myself.

    And that leads me to the idea that I think the hidden “secret” is simply “belief” (in yourself; confidence the goal is attainable, and that you can achieve it. Self-analysis of my successes and failures has lead me to this conclusion.

    Also, I am not sure whether buying a book for $25, or so, makes sense. Since the ORIGINAL Classic is actually available free. Or if you want a copy it is much less than $25. He probably has some useful insights, tips etc. But, if you earnestly read and WORK the principles in the book, then it will work. it did for me.! goog luck.

    Amazing how human beings go round in circles when all the while the answer was always in and with them.
     Jesus clearly outlined the principle(Law) in Mark11:23-24.Read it!
    Anyone who understands and applies it always gets results.Its more accurate than the law of gravity.
     One of the great hindrances is the conditioning of the mind that we believe when we have  or see which puts everything in the future.
      The key outlined is:
    1. To POSSESS NOW mentally(like we already have it) what we desire/want (this is where imagination/visualization kicks in).
    2. Then work  to actualize/manifest it physically.This requires courage,confidence,tenacity,diligence,endurance and patience.What makes one stay the course is the STRONG desire.This is where most people fail.
    That is why Jesus said elsewhere, count the cost and see whether you have what it takes to finish.
