“Think And Grow Rich” is one of the universally recognized personal development masterpieces. The book‘s philosophy centers around the idea that success, in any endeavor, can be reached through a change of perception. It’s not only about material success but also personal fulfilment.
Like all humans, we are conditioned by our environment, our culture, and external circumstances. In most cases, we are educated to adapt to our society rather than develop our inherent qualities and gifts. This creates a feeling of internal despair that translates as a feeling of “lack” in everything we are doing, feeding an internal emptiness that accompanies us throughout our lives.
This book was created in 1937 by Napoleon Hill, during the Great Depression. The Great Depression was a severe global economic depression that took place mainly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. It began in 1929 and lasted until the late 1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. The Great Depression put humanity in a state of survival, which created a radical change in the consciousness of many. The most powerful vibration of that time was that of “the lack of” all the comforts that humanity had managed to invent for itself, which ended up giving rise to consumerism.
This book explains how to regain consciousness of our creative power. It tells us about six fundamental fears:
- Fear of poverty
- Fear of criticism
- Fear of ill health
- Fear of loss of love
- Fear of old age
- Fear of death
Think and Grow Rich introduces us to concepts that for many are not very comfortable, especially in our relationship with money, and especially for those of us who want a just and equal world for all living beings. But it is precisely those ideas that do not allow us to change the world as we wish, since to achieve great things we must be open to receive the blessings that we want to offer to others.
“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a.just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”
Our relationship with money tells us how we relate to life. In our time we still need money to survive in our society. Although I believe that the evolution of humanity will lead us to a system that will provide free housing, food, education and health, we still live in a universal society where money is necessary for subsistence, despite the fact that there are already means and technology to end with poverty around the world. This speaks to the state of human consciousness that has taught itself that we must “earn a living”, otherwise we are not worthy. Obviously, we all want to be “worthy”, and thus our existence is conditioned to “work hard” in order to enjoy our fruits in the hereafter. Very few know the pleasure of working in what one loves … That would be too pleasant and does not agree with the unconscious belief that we must suffer to win the kingdom of heaven. When we do what we love, even if we are working 24 hours in a row, what we do is not perceived as “hard work”, but rather as “passion”. How many people would like to plant apple trees in the field? Or work outdoors all day? Today, the format of “success” that reigned during the 20th century is changing. The direction this change takes is up to us.
We cannot wait for a savior to come to change this paradigm. We all have to do it alone, since there are no universal examples that promote the flourishing of the individual based on personal qualities. The rejection of wealth has a lot to do with the contrast that causes the prosperity of others, since it makes us feel unconsciously poor and inadvertently awakens all the beliefs about money that exist within our unconscious. So, many of us prefer to remain poor, because that makes us “worthy”. At the same time, many of us are intoxicated by consumerism, since it is almost the only way to feel that we have some “control” over reality. If we can make purchases, we are part of it.
“Wealth” is pretty simple … just look at the little birds that sing in the sunlight every morning. Although they have to go find their food to stay alive, most of the time they spend enjoying existence. Of course, if nature causes food shortages, the survival status of these birds will make them fight each other for available food. And the strongest will survive. But in our society, humanity has created for itself a system that puts us in a constant state of lack of security. As a result, the pursuit of money becomes more important than discovering and developing the inherent talents of our individuality. That is why so many people dream of being a “millionaire”, the only way in which we will achieve complete security for our survival.
When we begin to wonder what we want to achieve with that money, we discover that, for the most part, what we want is to get out of stress. This is precisely what is called “wanting from the feeling of lack”, something that is always highlighted by those who speak of our lack of success with respect to the law of attraction. And it’s basically what we need to transform in order for our lives to align with prosperity.
This book has ideas that can help us review our relationship with money and personal value. Although it focuses on obtaining material wealth, when we understand that material wealth is a gift that mother earth has given to absolutely all living beings on this planet, we can change our perspective of what it is to “earn a living” and get out of social conditioning that keeps us slaves to an absurd system. In this way, together, we can create a world where poverty is eradicated once and for all.
