A Year of Growing Rich:  Choose Your Goal

Book Cover


This is the 15th week of a 52 week motivational journey and I want to invite you along.  Each week, I will touch on one of the chapters from Napoleon Hill's book titled  A Year of Growing Rich and subtitled "52 Steps to Achieving Life's Rewards."  

If you would like you can pick up a new or used copy from Amazon for as low as a few cents  -- a great investment in your future.  Previous posts in this series can be accessed by clicking here.



It seems that every motivational speaker and real estate trainer will talk about goals. Napoleon Hill devoted this chapter to choosing your goal. He said that very few people have goals and plans to reach them.

Hill says, "If you know exactly what you want and have absolute faith in your ability to get it, you can achieve success".

Hill explains,"There is a precise four-point formula for achieving your goals":

  1. "Write out a clear statement of what you desire most..."
  2. "Write out a clear outline of the plan by which you intend to attain this objective and clearly state what you intend to give in return." 
  3. "Set a definite time limit..." 
  4. "Memorize what you have written and repeat it many times daily as a prayer".
If you follow these steps as outlined by Hill, you will set yourself apart from most people and will have a much greater chance of achieving success.

Hill concludes saying, "Definiteness of purpose makes the word impossible obsolete".

Doug, This is a tough market and it is more important than ever to set goals and make the plans to achieve them. 

Andre,  I'm glad that you stopped by. I hope you check out some of my photos, too. I would love your comments and I hope to see your first post soon.

Gary I wanted to pop back in to say one more time......this is sooooo important.  If agents followed this 4 steps consistently their business would be off the charts positive.

  1. "Write out a clear statement of what you desire most..."
  2. "Write out a clear outline of the plan by which you intend to attain this objective and clearly state what you intend to give in return." 
  3. "Set a definite time limit..." 
  4. "Memorize what you have written and repeat it many times daily as a prayer".

Thanks again for sharing this tiny YET HUGE book!

Gary - I'd would like to see your photos. Is there a particular link you can lead me to? Having lived in NY for over 20 years straight after growing up in the warm Florida sun, I'm starting to think about planning my escape to Paradise. My good friend just bought land in Rinco, PR for his retirement in 5 years. I still have some time to go - It will do good for all of us Northerners to see photos of some place warm.

Anna, Thanks for stopping back - those four points will work -- unfortunately very few people follow them.

Andre, I bet you do want to end up some where warmer.  I know that I do.  Here is a link to my posts:  http://activerain.com/blogs/garytcoles  Most of them have photos that I took. Any photo (and there are only a few) from anyone else will be labeled as such.
