I tried to Google it… HA!
There are more answers of what people think “THE SECRET” is than there are references of it in the book (over a hundred, I might add). I mean I’ve read everything I could get my eyes on. People claim it is desire, a plan, a mastermind group, persistence, imagination, a combination of a few, the law of attraction, the subconscious mind, taking action, and then there was the obvious, the title of the book, “Think and Grow Rich.” Another person stated that your instinct will become so natural to you that your actions will lead you to your desires and that there really wasn’t any secret to be had, and so on and so on. Whatever the answer was, it has to include of these! There was no denying that millions of lives have been changed by this book. I thought maybe if people we’re just simply following the instructions in the book, they were practicing the secret without really knowing exactly how it happen. In all honesty I was searching for a short-cut.
Now, what if the answer was different for everyone? What if you had to read and experience it for yourself? We all know how it’s literally impossible it is to have an experience of riding a bike without actually riding one right? And so in the words of Napoleon Hill, I was trying to get something, for nothing.
Hill also said in the author’s preface that, “It has not been directly named, for it seems to work more successfully when it is merely uncovered and left in sight, where THOSE WHO ARE READY and SEARCHING FOR IT may pick it up. The secret to which I refer cannot be had without a price, although the price is far less than it’s value. It cannot be had at any price by those who are not intentionally searching for it. It cannot be given away, and it cannot be purchased for money, for the reason that it comes in two parts. One part is already in possession of those who are ready for it.
Before the first Chapter Hill writes, “As a final word of preparation, before you begin the next chapter, may I offer you one brief suggestion which may provide a clue by which the Carnegie secret may be recognized? It is this: ALL ACHIEVEMENT, ALL EARNED RICHES, HAVE THEIR BEGINNING IN AN IDEA! If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it, therefore, you will readily recognize the other half the moment it reaches your mind.”
Why doesn’t Hill just come out and tell us what the secret is? Why did he suggest the reader “READ THE BOOK 3 TIMES” and “IF YOU DO, AFTER THAT YOU WON’T WANT TO STOP READING IT AGAIN AND AGAIN “Please pay close attention to what he says, “IF YOU ARE READY TO PUT IT TO USE, YOU WILL RECOGNIZE THIS SECRET AT LEAST ONCE IN EVERY CHAPTER. I WISH I MIGHT FEEL PRIVILEGED TO TELL YOU, (NOT WHAT IT IS, BUT…) HOW YOU WILL KNOW IF YOU ARE READY, BUT THAT WOULD DEPRIVE YOU OF MUCH OF THE BENEFIT YOU WILL RECEIVE WHEN YOU MAKE THE DISCOVERY IN YOUR OWN WAY.”
