Today, I want to answer the question: can you really think and grow rich?
As you probably know, the concept behind the Law of Attraction is not new. Most ancient religious texts talk about the importance of how thoughts influence our actions. Descartes famously said, “I think, therefore I am.” In the 1930s Napoleon Hill wrote the book “Think and Grow Rich” that has gone on to influence millions of people even today. “The Secret” is only the most recent variation on this theme.
I confess that I don’t really believe in the Law of Attraction. At least not as a law unto itself. The Law of Attraction works when paired with what I like to call the Law of Action.
Therefore you can’t merely think and grow rich (and I think Napoleon Hill would agree with that). As a former manager of large building projects, I know that you can’t think a building into being. That would be absurd. Yes, every project begins with a vision and inspiration. But you can only visualize for so long. You need detailed blueprints. Then you need to assemble the right materials and the services of skilled laborers. . MORE>>>
