Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

“We foolishly believe that our own limitations are the proper measure of limitations.”

“When Henry Ford decided to produce his famous V-8 motor, he chose to build an engine with the entire eight cylinders cast in one block, and instructed his engineers to produce a design for the engine.  The design was placed on paper, but the engineers agreed, to a man, that it was simply impossible to cast an eight-cylinder engine block in one piece.  Ford said, “Produce it anyway!” “But,” they replied, “it's impossible!” “Go ahead,” Ford commanded, ” and stay on the job until you succeed, no matter how much time is required.”

“At the end of the year Ford checked with his engineers, and again they informed him they had found no way to carry out his orders.  “Go right ahead,” said Ford. “I want it, and I'll have it.”  They went ahead, and then, as if by a stroke of magic, the secret was discovered.  The Ford determination had won once more!

This story may not be described with minute accuracy, but the sum and substance of it is correct.  Deduce from it, you who wish to think and grow rich, the secret of the Ford millions, if you can.  You'll not have to look very far.  Henry Ford was a success because he understood and applied the principles of success.  One of these is desire, knowing what one wants.”
