Numerology of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
In this article we unpack the Numerology of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Think and Grow Rich was written by Napoleon Hill in 1937 and promoted as a personal development and self-improvement book. He claimed to be inspired by a suggestion from business magnate and later-philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.
“Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another” Napoleon Hill
Hill learned the book’s thirteen steps to riches from Andrew Carnegie whom he worked with for two decades. Carnegie was the wealthiest man in the world at the time. According to Hill, Carnegie shared his success secrets with him and connected him with over 500 of the most successful people in the world to learn their secrets, too. Those people included Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Theodore Roosevelt, and Alexander Graham Bell.
“First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination” Napoleon Hill
Think and Grow Rich was first published in 1937 during The Great Depression
While the book’s title and much of the writing concerns increasing income, the author insists that his philosophy can help people succeed in any line of work, to do and be anything they can imagine. First published during the Great Depression, the book sold more than 20 million copies by Hill’s death in 1970. By 2015, more than 100 million copies had been sold worldwide. Hill is therefore one of the most successful bestselling authors ever.
“Success in its highest and noblest form calls for peace of mind and enjoyment and happiness which come only to the man who has found the work that he likes best” Napoleon Hill
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe it will achieve
The line which the book is most famous for is “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” Within the book there are five major themes which Hill masterfully expands upon. They are: the starting point of all achievement is desire; you are the master of your destiny; when defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal; your greatest success will often come just one step beyond the point at which defeat has overtaken you; and set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass.
“Before success comes in any man’s life, he’s sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That’s exactly what the majority of men do” Napoleon Hill

The first step in our 365 Pin Code approach to unpack the Numerology of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill involves analysing his date of birth, the 26th of October 1883. In terms of understanding the numerological significance of 1937, the year Think and Grow Rich was release for the very first time, we need to draw your attention to Napoleon Hill’s Professional Attainment Number (TKSPR above).
Napoleon Hill’s 365 Pin Code Professional Attainment Number is the Number 1, the Leader
Hill’s Professional Attainment Number is the Number 1 (i.e. the leader, attainment, innovation etc.) and you will see it circled in bright green in the above chart. Attainment numbers are numerical experiences coded into our birth chart, which we are all working toward whether knowingly or unknowingly so. In the same chart, if you look to the far left of his professional attainment number you will see his Personal Attainment Number (TKSPE, pale green) which is the Number 9 (consciousness, The many different Universal Laws etc, completion, universal outlook, unconditional love etc.).
Napoleon Hill has a Number 2 Life Path and a Number 7 Shadow Life Path
Other important numbers in the above chart, purely for interest sake should you wish to understand more about the numerology of Napoleon Hill, are the Number 2 boldly circled in red, which is his life path number and the Number 7 (16//7) which is his Shadow / Emotional Life path number. Being born on the DD 26th means he has the Number 8 energy (money, power, business, authority, searching for the intelligent balance between the mind [spiritual matters] and form [earthly matters]) expressing itself with and through him in the person. No wonder he dedicated so much of his life to understanding money, riches, the mind, the intelligent creation of wealth and writing Think and Grow Rich.
Now that we have made you aware of the importance of the number 1 as his professional attainment number, we shift to step 2 of this analytical process around the Numerology of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

365 Pin Code 4D Quadratic Model (year-on-year experiences) revealing unique annual lines of numerology code for Napoleon Hill born 26.10.1883
There is a tremendous amount of data in the above chart, so let’s keep this simple and in line with the purpose of this research piece, let’s stick to what his numbers say for 1937, the year Think and Grow Rich went public. The line of code / data string in play in 1937 is 19(1)-1937[Year]-11(2)-1-11(2)-54[Age]-3(3)-1-1(10). In the above 1937 line of code there are 3 red blocks which signify important numerical convergences, all relating to the Number 1 (leadership, attainment, innovation, originality etc.). This in the world of 365 Pin Code Numerology represents super-convergence and whenever something like this happens in our chart, guaranteed something massive went down. And it did, exactly as it was coded to be life path wise from the very moment of his birth.
Hill’s 1937 was defined by the Number 19, Independence and The Universal Laws
The bold 19(1) in the 1937 line of code represents independence and it is a karmic number which has locked within its significance the alignment of self with higher / universal powers. More importantly, the number 1 coded life path experience for Hill in 1937 links powerfully in a synchronistic way, with his Professional Attainment Number 1… The bold 11(2)-1 represents illumination, enlightenment and teaching as the number 11 is in fact a master number, the number of the master intuitive. The bold 1-1(10) represents a massive new emotional beginning for Hill, professionally speaking. This intelligent line of code proves beyond all reasonable doubt that within Hill’s life path, 1937 was coded to be a moment of true greatness for him. He converted this golden success opportunity because he did the work, because he sucked up all the punishment dished out along the way, because he persisted, because he was inspired and being called by a Higher Authority to deliver something that was “not of this world.”
This number 19 independence / self-universal-law-alignment experience for Hill lasted from 1937 through to 1939. Then in 1940, the emotional impact of all this achievement makes itself known through the number 16//7 expressing itself for just one year only (1940 line of code blocked off in black). If you return to his birth chart you will see that this 16//7 number combination is the exact same set of numbers which represent his Shadow / Emotional Life Path, therefore rest assured this emotional transition was a massive one!

Napoleon Hill’s phenomenal success has not been without controversy
Hill is, in modern times, a controversial figure. Alleged of fraud and kidnapping, modern historians also doubt many of his claims, such as that he met Andrew Carnegie and that he was an attorney. Gizmodo has called him “the most famous conman you’ve probably never heard of”. Let’s use 365 Pin Code Numerology analytics to dig further into this…
1908: Andrew Carnegie induces Napoleon Hill to organize the world’s first philosophy of personal achievement
Not everyone believes that Hill collaborated with Carnegie
The authenticity of many of Hill’s claims have been widely disputed. Napoleon Hill’s collaboration with Andrew Carnegie have never been confirmed by Carnegie or the Carnegie estate, and Hill allegedly only started making claims of interviewing Carnegie after he had died. Aside from Hill’s writings, there are no accounts of the meeting taking place. According to Andrew Carnegie biographer David Nasaw he said of the alleged meeting between Carnegie and Hill that he “found no evidence of any sort that Carnegie and Hill ever met” and “I found no evidence that the book was authentic.” Outside of Hill’s own writings, and aside from briefly meeting Thomas Edison in 1923, the evidence is lacking for many of Hill’s other claims of meeting other famous men. According to the official Napoleon Hill biography the reason for this is that the all the photos, letters from presidents, and endorsement letters from famous men were all lost in a fire.
So, what do the above numbers say about 1908?
Given Hill’s Personal Attainment Number 9 (see our 365 pin code birth chart analytics), the fact that the above line of data for 1908 reads 18(9)-1908-18(9)-9-9(18)-25 proves that this was a year which would form or massively impact, his life-long personal attainment journey. We believe that this line of code shoots gaping holes in the words of those who wish to cynically twist people’s thoughts into believing that Napoleon Hill was not the real deal. The numbers show he was the real deal and as our vast amount of published 365 Pin Code Strategic Applied Numerology Research reveals, the numbers never lie!

[…] Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill reminds us that there is much more to life than money. Central to the acquisition of riches, is developing a wealthy mindset or nurturing what many wealth coaches like to call, a ‘prosperity consciousness’. Tragically, most people have a poverty consciousness believing that everything is scarce, and so they spend their entire lives in a state of fear driven by a mindset of lack. Money controls these people and unless they do a tremendous amount of personal development, learn sound money management skills and adjust their internal (as in subconsciously lodged) money blueprint, they will never get to the point where they are able to control money.
