15 Apr The 6 fears keeping you from getting rich, according to a 78-year-old personal-finance classic
I came across this interesting article the other day – it shares some of the main points from the classic financial book by Napoleon Hill called Think and Grow Rich.
Here is one of the points from the article:
The fear of poverty
According to Hill, the fear of poverty is both the most destructive and the hardest to master of the six fears. This is because of what Hill refers to as “money madness.”
People “prey” on one another financially to attain the most money. The author points out “a man is considered less than the dust of the earth, unless he can display a fat bank account.” He continues: “Nothing brings man so much suffering and humility as poverty!”
To conquer this fear, Hill says, you must create a desire for riches and completely banish the option of poverty. You must be unwilling to accept poverty.
