After listening to so many financial podcasts, I finally read and finished Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I give this book a 10 out of 10 as it awakened in me the need to deal with my procrastination, limiting beliefs, and self-sabotaging. I’m rereading some chapters as we speak. The book also addresses the power of faith and positive thinking, and how our thoughts transmute themselves into their physical equivalent.
It was hard to pick momentum when I first started as I felt like I was in the 1800s and not in a good way. The first chapters, to me, felt like the book was addressing someone living in the 1800s. However, I did pick momentum and I have been reading a chapter or 2 pages a day before starting my day. I finished the book, and I’m wondering what I should pick next
