Hello, I’m Brian Tracy and let me tell you about the three top self-development books that have had such a great impact on me.
The first one which I stumbled across many many years ago was called.
1. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill now Napoleon Hill.
Was a journalist and a writer and he was called in to visit with Andrew Carnegie one of the richest most successful business magnets in.
The world at that time and Andrew Carnegie invited him in for this interview and he wasn’t sure what.
It is about and then Carnegie said I want you to help me to develop a philosophy of success I will open the doors to the 500 richest people in.
America so that you can interview them as many times as you need to then take all the best information from these 500 people and put it into a series of.
Books to help other young people to be successful much faster and he said but the challenge is this he said.
I’m not going to pay you a penny I’ll open all the doors so that you can get all the information and interview all these top people but.
I won’t pay you a penny what do you say and the pavan Hill had thought this man was going to hire.
There and he thought and he thought that he finally said okay I’ll do it and then.
Andrew Carnegie pulled his watch out from under the desk and he said you had 60 seconds to give me an.
Answer you made your answer in 46 seconds he then went on to open the door to every wealthy person in.
America people who had started from nothing and become extraordinarily rich and what Napoleon Hill.
Did is he took over the years and he found that there were 17 principles that wealthy people had qualities and behaviors.
He found that no one started off with these qualities and behaviors and he found that they were all learn about so.
He wrote a 22 volume set of books on success which nobody would buy then he wrote a thousand page book on success which nobody would.
Buy and then suddenly the Depression hit and nobody would buy a success book at all so in 1936 they took a flyer the publisher and they published.
One small 250 page book called think Grow Rich which became the most successful success book in the.
History of the world and I read it over and over again as have many of the wealthiest people in.
America so that’s my first one that’s where you would start now my second one it would be my own book maximum achievement.
2. BRIAN TRACY
You how to completely change the way you think how to set goals in every area of your life.
How to dramatically take control of your life in every area and eliminate the negative emotions that hold people back.
But it also shows you how to perform beautiful relationships with the most important people in your life.
How to develop high levels of self-esteem and self-confidence all the time and many of the things.
This book is based on my lifetime of study reading hundreds and thousands of books and articles putting.
The material together into seminars and training more than a million people in something like 58 countries on these principles and.
Then writing it into a book and so maximum achievement and Think and Grow Rich are the right hand and the left hand of success now another that I would recommend that I have always liked is.
3. The power of positive thinking by Norman Vincent Peale.
Norman vincent peale I knew him and I worked with them before he died he was a minister and.
He came up with some very very interesting ideas about how the more positive you think the more energy you have.
The more grateful you are for the things in your life the more things that you will have to be grateful for just like.
I teach and other people teach you’ll attract into your life people in circumstances i.
harmony with your dominant thoughts so norman vincent Peale Zai dia the power of positive thinking has changed an entire generation you know the last few decades in.
America has been the wealthiest decades of any country in the history of man on earth and it’s because these books and other books like.
The movers and shakers and the wealthiest people in our society so if you want to be like the number one read Think and Grow Rich.
Number two read my book maximum achievement number three read the power positive thinking those books will change your life.
I spoken to thousands of people who say literally they went from rags to riches by reading any one of those books.
If you read all three what a difference it will make thank you for reading if you enjoyed this article please leave a comment and like to my website.
