《Think and Grow Rich 思考致富》-PUBLISHER'S PREFACE出版者序言

本次翻译的是出版者序言,这篇序言在国内中文版内也是没有的。

THIS book conveys the experience of more than 500 men of great wealth, who began at scratch, with nothing to give in return for riches except THOUGHTS, IDEAS and ORGANIZED PLANS.

本书传达了超过500位白手起家的富翁经验,除了思想、观念和有组织的计划外,没有什么再能带来财富了。

Here you have the entire philosophy of moneymaking, just as it was organized from the actual achievements of the most successful men known to the American people during the past fifty years. It describes WHAT TO DO, also, HOW TO DO IT!

这里有全部的赚钱法则,这些法则根据过去50年美国历史中已知的最成功人士的真实成就提炼组织而成。它讲述了要做什么如何去做

It presents complete instructions on HOW TO SELL YOUR PERSONAL SERVICES.

它是提出完整说明如何去推销个人服务的一本书

It provides you with a perfect system of self-analysis that will readily disclose what has been standing between you and “the big money” in the past.

它为你提供了自我分析的完美系统,这个系统将非常容易的揭露过去是什么存在于你和“巨大财富”之间。

It describes the famous Andrew Carnegie formula of personal achievement by which he accumulated hundreds of millions of dollars for himself and made no fewer than a score of millionaires of men to whom he taught his secret.

它描述了著名人士安德鲁·卡内基的个人成就公式,通过这个公司他为自己积累了数百万美元,还有通过将这个秘密公式教给他人,他创造了不下于一位的百万富翁。

Perhaps you do not need all that is to be found in the book— no one of the 500 men from whose experiences it was written did— but you may need ONE IDEA, PLAN OR SUGGESTION to start you toward your goal. Somewhere in the book you will find this needed stimulus.

有可能你不需要本书中的全部要点-500位成功人士中没有一位的经验被记录下来(翻译的很别扭)--但是你有可能需要一个观念、计划或者建议去驶向你自己的目标。在本书的某些地方你将会发现惊喜。

The book was inspired by Andrew Carnegie, after he had made his millions and retired. It was written by the man to whom Carnegie disclosed the astounding secret of his riches—the same man to whom the 500 wealthy men revealed the source of their riches.

在他赚到百万身家并退休后,这本书的得到了安德鲁·卡内基的授意。这本书讲述的是卡内基公开关于他财富的惊人秘密--同样的还有500位富翁揭露了他们的财富之源。

In this volume will be found the thirteen principles of money- making essential to every person who accumulates sufficient money to guarantee financial independence. It is estimated that the research which went into the preparation, before the book was written, or could be written—research covering more than twenty- five years of continuous effort—could not be duplicated at a cost of less than $100,000.00.

在本书中将会发现十三个金钱原则--对于每一位想积累足够财富以实现财富自由的人是必不可少的。在本书被写成或可以写成之前,这十三个原则的研究已经进入准备工作--超过25年的持续研究--少于一百万成本是不可能被复制的。

Moreover, the knowledge contained in the book never can be duplicated, at any cost, for the reason that more than half of the 500 men who supplied the information it brings have passed on.

此外,本书包含的知识是可能复制的,无论付出任何代价,因为500位成功人士中有超过一半的人提供了有价值的信息。

*Riches cannot always be measured in money! *

财富不能总是用金钱来衡量。

Money and material things are essential for freedom of body and mind, but there are some who will feel that the greatest of all riches can be evaluated only in terms of lasting friendships, harmonious family relationships, sympathy and understanding between business associates, and introspective harmony which brings one peace of mind measurable only in spiritual values!

金钱和物质条件是身体自由及心理自由的基础,但是也有些人认为最大的财富是长久的友谊,和谐的家庭,商业伙伴之间的同情和理解,内省和谐带来一个平静的内心且只能用精神价值来衡量!

All who read, understand and apply this philosophy will be better prepared to attract and enjoy these higher estates which always have been and always will be denied to all except those who
are ready for them.

所有阅读、理解并运用这个理念的人将对吸引和享受更高的状态而做好准备,它一直都在而且经常拒绝所有人,除非这些人做好了准备去接受它。

Be prepared, therefore, when you expose yourself to the influence of this philosophy, to experience a CHANGED LIFE which may help you not only to negotiate your way through life with harmony and understanding, but also to prepare you for the accumulation of material riches in abundance.

做好准备,因此,当你自己完全接受这个理念的影响,去体验生活的改变,这些不仅能帮助你将生命的趋向于和谐和理解,而且能让你对积累丰富的物质财富做好准备。
