About Napoleon Hill

Oliver Napoleon Hill was an American self-help author. He is known best for his book Think and Grow Rich, which is among the 10 best-selling self-help books of all time. [1]

Napoleon Hill began his writing career at age 13 as a “mountain reporter” for small-town newspapers and became America’s most beloved motivational author. His work stands as a monument to individual achievement and is the cornerstone of modern motivation.

Hill established the Foundation as a nonprofit educational institution whose mission is to perpetuate his philosophy of leadership, self-motivation, and individual achievement. 

Think and Grow Rich is the result of Hill’s study of over five hundred self-made millionaires—a condensed, accessible explanation of his Law of Success philosophy, which includes thirteen steps to riches (financial, emotional, and spiritual).

The book‘s philosophy centers around the idea that success, in any endeavor, can be reached through mental visualization and imagination. To put it in simple terms, you can become anything that your mind deems possible; as a result, your mind becomes the one thing that can either stop you or propel you toward becoming the best version of yourself.
