Journalist Napoleon Hill’s 1937 book “Think and Grow Rich” outlined what Hill’s research found to be the traits most commonly shared by the successful business leaders of his day. Hill used the skills he learned in advisory positions for powerful leaders – including US Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt – to launch a career as a motivational author, outlining the commonalities between the successful men he advised. By the time Hill died in 1970, “Think and Grow Rich” had sold over 20 million copies, making it one of the best-selling books of all time.
