An Adaption of Napoleon Hill’s 13 Principles of Success from an Asian Culture
Very early in my career, I was introduced to Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. Since that time, I have been practicing his principles and read several of his books. I was intrigued quite curious about the title of John C. Shin’s book How Rich Asians Think.
After reading the preface, I knew I was going to be challenged to reflect on my past accomplishments in light of today’s contemporary culture. Shin’s book contains stories of, and interviews with successful Asians and American Asians who have been challenged to act on Hill’s 13 basic principles of success as well as incorporating principles from the “Asian Mastermind.”
I have been energized by re-reading Hill’s life-changing principles in light of Shin’s updated version. I am at a stage in my life where I am ready to make some life changes. How Asians Think has given me new insights for implementing my purpose, and to stand behind that purpose until it becomes an all-consuming obsession.
