Introduction.


Thoughts are things.  





Truly thoughts are things and powerful things  at that

when they are mixed with definiteness of  

purpose persistence and a burning desire for their 

translation into riches or other material objects  

the inventor and the _____



Many years ago a man by  the name of

Edwin Barnes had a burning desire to  

become a business associate of the great inventor  Thomas Edison.

What began as just a thought  

became reality. When this desire flashed  into his mind He did not know

Edison nor  

did he have any plans or answers as to how he  would make it a reality.

He did not even have  

enough money for the train ticket. All he had  was a burning desire.

Most would have given up  

at this point but Barnes hitched a ride on  a freight train all the way to

New Jersey.

He presented himself to Edison and proclaimed his  intentions of

becoming Edison's business partner.  






Thomas Edison later said "He stood there before me like an ordinary ______ but

there was something about the expression of his face which conveyed the impression

he was determined to get what he had come after.





I had learned from years of

experience that when a man really desires something so deeply that he's willing to

stake his entire future on a single turn of the wheel in order to get it.

He is sure to win. I gave him the opportunity he had asked for because. I saw he had made up his

mind to stand by until he succeeded subsequent events proved no mistake had been made ".

Although by no means was he made a partner on that first day he was however given a role and

slowly over the years did end up becoming Edison's business partner and an exceptionally wealthy man.



In other words thought impulses can be turned into material rewards.



Three feet from gold.






One of

the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat

before success in anyone's life is achieved failures and temporary defeats are sure to arise

all too often success comes just one step beyond the point of which defeat has overtaken you.

You just need to hold on and persevere through these temporary defeats







More than 500 of the most successful individuals this country has ever known have told me that

their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them

failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning it takes great delight in tripping

one when success is almost within reach. You are the master of your fate and captain of your soul

Everyone has the ability to control their thoughts so therefore they are able to control their fate

Our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds.

By means which no

one fully understands these dominating thoughts like magnets attract to us the forces, the people,

the circumstances of life, which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.


Principle 1 :Desire

desire the starting point of all  achievement







desire the starting point of all achievement. It was not hope it was not a wish

it was a keen pulsating desire which transcended everything else it was definite. This is the

first step towards riches Hill stresses that desire is not just a wish or a hope it must

be a burning desire such that it is a consuming obsession backed by definiteness and persistence

there is a legend of an ancient commander in his army which was greatly outnumbered

they sailed for miles and reached the shores of the enemy he ordered his men

to disembark onto the beach but the commander knew that the greatest enemy of all was fear

inspired by this belief he eliminated the only possible source of retreat

burn the ships he commanded you see the boats going up in smoke that means that

we cannot leave these shores alive unless we win we now have no choice we win or we perish




in order to be successful you must be willing to burn the ships and eliminate all sources of

retreat and surrender only then will you have a state of mind that is conducive with a burning

desire to win when Barnes visited Thomas Edison. 





Barnes did not say I will try to induce Edison

to give me a job of some sort he said I will see Edison and inform him that I have come to go into

business with him he did not say I will work there for a few months and if I get no encouragement I

will quit my unfulfilling job he said I will start anywhere and do anything Edison tells me to do

but before I am through I will be his associate he did not say I will keep my eyes open for another

opportunity in case I fail to get what I want in the Edison organization he said there is but one

thing in the world that I am determined to have and that is a business association with Thomas

Edison I will burn all bridges around me and stake my entire future on my ability to get what I want.




Columbus dreamt of an unknown world staked his life on the existence of such a world

and discovered it Copernicus the great astronomer dreamt of a multiplicity of worlds

and revealed them Marconi dreamt of a system for harnessing the intangible forces of the ether

and revealed the radio to the world dreams are the seedlings of reality no one is ready for a

thing until they believe they can acquire it the state of mind must be belief not mere hope or wish

open-mindedness is essential for belief closed minds do not inspire faith courage

and belief remember no more effort is required to aim high in life

to demand abundance and prosperity then is required to accept misery and poverty


hill outlines six steps to achieving your desire  to be applied with the other 12 principles  

the method by which desire for riches can  be transmuted into its financial equivalent  

consists of six definite and practical steps  





one fixing your mind the exact amount of money you desire this number cannot be vague it must

be an exact amount two determine exactly what you will give in return for that money

three establish a definite date that you want to be in possession of the money four create

a definite plan for attaining your desire and begin immediately


five take steps one to four and  

summarize them into clear and concise statement  of the amount deadline and plan to achieve it six  

read this statement aloud twice a day when you  wake up in the morning and once again before you  

sleep when reading aloud you must visualize  yourself already in possession of that money

wishing will not bring riches but desiring riches  with a state of mind that becomes an obsession  

then planning definite ways and means to acquire  riches and backing those plans with persistence  which does not recognize failure will bring  riches




here is an example of a written statement  






by the first day of September i will have my possession 250 000 which will come to me in

various amounts during the interim in return for this money i will give the most efficient service

of which i am capable in my capacity as founder of the XYZ startup i believe that i'll have this

money in my possession my faith is so strong that i can now see this money before my eyes

i am awaiting a plan and i will follow the plan when it is received

tailor the written statement to match your own desire and sign your name at the bottom

you will be using this written statement when it comes to the principle of auto suggestion

creative visualization napoleon hill's instructions to see yourself as you will

be when you have already achieved your goal is what modern day motivational

experts call creative visualization you can think of this process in just the same way

as athletes visualize the outcome of a game or a fight before it has occurred

this method is explored in more detail in the principle of auto suggestion





the other you every failure brings with it a seed of an equivalent success

when you focus only on your failures in life you attract more negativity to yourself

try to instead cultivate a friendship with what hill refers to as the other you

you can think of the other you as an alter ego that recognizes no defeat

make this side of you an ally that shares your goals and your desires





Principle 2 :Faith





faith visualization of and belief in attainment of desire

faith is a head chemist of the mind when faith is blended with the vibration of thought the

subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration translates it into its spiritual equivalent

and transmits it to the infinite intelligence faith look around at some of the biggest

companies in the world







they all began as thoughts in the minds of one or two people

there are fortunes being made around you every single day and those fortunes began

as ideas only when you actually believe and have faith that you can attain your desire will you

be ready to do so your faith can be developed through ongoing affirmations and visualization

of your desire   




faith is one of the most powerful positive emotions we have alongside sex and love through the power of these three emotions we are able to reach our subconscious mind

these thoughts can then be translated and received by the infinite intelligence

in reality faith is a state of mind which you can foster through repeated signals

to the subconscious mind hill refers to this practice throughout the book as auto suggestion

people eventually become their thought patterns and when your thoughts are dominated by positive

emotions and a burning desire all forces are guided towards acts and deeds that accomplish

that desire





strange forces both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought your

thoughts are like a magnetic force that attracts similar thought patterns that are in harmony with

your own your thoughts begin to become real in the physical world you manifest reality

similarly the subconscious mind cannot differentiate between positive

and negative thought patterns so someone who feels like they are destined to be

poor and only fill their subconscious mind with negative thoughts attract just that





there are millions of people who believe themselves doomed to poverty and failure

because of some strange force over which they believe they have no control they are

the creators of their own misfortunes because of this negative belief which is picked up

by their subconscious mind and translated into its physical equivalent




planting seeds

thoughts which are mixed with any of the feelings of emotions constitute a magnetic force

which attracts from the vibrations of the ether other similar or related thoughts a thought thus

magnetized with emotion may be compared to a seed which when planted in fertile

soil germinates grows and multiplies itself over and over again until that

which was originally once a small seed becomes countless millions of seeds of the same brand

the main idea is that any idea goal or purpose can be planted into your subconscious mind

through repetition again be careful what you think about because the subconscious mind

cannot in any way differentiate between constructive and destructive thoughts


Principle 3 : Autosuggestion






auto suggestion the medium for influencing the subconscious mind your

subconscious mind recognizes and acts upon only thoughts which have been well mixed with emotion

or feeling auto suggestion is a vehicle which we can use to stimulate and guide our subconscious

mind to work for us how you view the world and view yourself as what your subconscious

mind takes in it cannot differentiate between positive or negative thoughts so if your thoughts

are generally negative your subconscious mind will get to work at manifesting those negative thoughts

into reality we want to try and flush out these negative thoughts and emotions and replace them

with seeds of positive thoughts and emotions we can achieve this through auto suggestion

auto suggestion is the vehicle which we can use to stimulate and guide our subconscious mind to work

for us this process is achieved by repeated self suggestions that use the five senses in order for

our suggestions to the subconscious mind to have an impact they first need to be mixed with emotion  






here is how you can stimulate and guide the subconscious mind

first go to a quiet place close your eyes and repeat aloud the amount of money you intend to

accumulate the time limit for its accumulation and a description of the service or product you

intend to give in return




by the first day of September I will have in my possession

two hundred and fifty thousand dollars which will come to me in various amounts during the interim

in return for this money I will give the most efficient service of which I am capable

in my capacity as founder of the XYZ startup I believe that I will have this money in my

possession my faith is so strong that I can now see this money before my eyes

I am awaiting a plan and I will follow that plan when it's received

second repeat this statement night and morning until you can see in your imagination the money

you intend to accumulate lastly place a written copy of your statement where you can see it in

the morning and night read it just before bed and again upon arising until it has been memorized




these instructions at first may seem abstract or even silly and skepticism is normal for all

human beings do not let this disturb you stick to the plan and soon skepticism will be overcome by

belief you'll begin to notice your mind thinking about how to make more money and everything else

less and through repetition you voluntarily create thought habits that can influence the subconscious

mind and transmute your desire into its monetary equivalent reading out your statement once is

easy what is challenging is turning these into thought habits by continual daily repetitions

until the desire is achieved




remember we can't just read the statement once and expect results

we need to be bombarding the subconscious mind with positive thoughts directed towards our

desire over time and we cannot allow any space for negative thoughts and emotions to flourish

continual repetition of the statement will begin to open the universe to your thoughts you will

have a heightened awareness of ideas and insights that will come to you in the form of hunches and

inspiration and the universe will guide you towards the plan of achieving your desire  







your ability to use the principle of auto-suggestion will depend very largely upon

your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession

continual repetition of the statement will begin to open the universe to your thoughts



Principle 4 : Specialized Knowledge






specialized knowledge personal experiences or observations wealth is often

accumulated from having specialized knowledge however knowledge in itself does not create wealth

knowledge only becomes power when it is organized into definite plans of action

and directed to a definite end

knowledge can be general or specialized general knowledge is of little use in wealth accumulation

specialized knowledge of the service or product you intend to provide is required in return for

wealth he'll suggest to identify the specialized knowledge you need for your product or service

and then to attain that knowledge instead of just working with what current knowledge you have




Principle 5 Imagination





imagination the workshop of the mind the impulse the desire is given shape form

and action through the aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind if you want to make your

desire a reality you need to add imagination with specialized knowledge two forms of imagination

hill explains there are two different forms of imagination synthetic imagination and creative

imagination our only limitation within reason lies in the development and use of our imagination  






synthetic imagination is arranging concepts and ideas into new combinations

this type of imagination is primarily used to attain wealth creative imagination is

through the use of hunches and inspiration to better read the subconscious minds of others

great leaders become very good at this type of imagination

imagination is like a muscle both types of imagination become stronger with use and

weaker without use the infinite intelligence for famed psychologist Carl Jung infinite intelligence




was the collective unconscious psychologists nowadays may refer to the infinite intelligence as

being in the zone or in the flow state for most people it is hard to imagine that thoughts can

be something tangible but if everything in the universe is made up of matter or energy

and thoughts create energy by sending little packets of photons throughout the brain are they

not in some regard something tangible are they creating small vibrations out into the universe

with quantum physics the quantum realm and theoretical science like string theory

it has never been easier to imagine a world 





where in fact our consciousness is somehow

connected to the universe and others around us in ways we don't yet fully understand

ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes ideas are the products of the imagination






 

principle 6 organized planning

organized planning the  crystallization of desire into action





organized planning the crystallization of desire into action

millions of people go through life in misery and poverty because they lack a sound plan

through which to accumulate a fortune our plans are organized and planned in the workshop of

our imagination you should become part of a group otherwise known as a mastermind ally yourself with

like-minded individuals that you will need for the creation and deployment of your plans decide in

advance what advantages or benefits you will offer the other members be it monetary or otherwise

meet with the mastermind group at least twice a week until you have jointly perfected the plan

maintain complete harmony between the mastermind members and yourself a quitter never wins and a

winner never quits if your first plans fail replace them with other plans until you find

plans which reach the desire this principle rewards those who persist until successful

and weeds out the people who want success but only if it's not difficult leaders and followers

it is no disgrace to be a follower on the other hand it is no credit to remain a follower most

great leaders began in the capacity of followers they became great leaders

because they were intelligent followers if you find yourself under someone else's leadership

make sure you use that opportunity to gain knowledge the major attributes of leadership

you need to evolve into a leader in your field to acquire riches however in the beginning you

may start as an intelligent follower

napoleon  hill explains 11 important factors of leadership  

1. unwavering courage no one will  follow someone without self-confidence 

 

2 self-control if you can't control yourself  how can you control others



3. a keen sense of  justice you need to be fair


4. definiteness  of decision no second guessing yourself  



5. definiteness of plans plan  your work and work your plan  


6. the habit of doing more than paid for do  more than your followers would be willing to do

  

7. pleasing personality respect is  linked to positive personality traits 


8. sympathy and understanding



9. mastery of detail  get good at the small details


10 willingness  






to assume full responsibility take ownership of your mistakes and don't shift the blame to others

eleven cooperation ten minds working together are better than one in the book this principle

also covers the ten negative traits of leaders however most of these are just the opposite of

the successful leadership traits we just went over moreover if you stick to these important factors

of leadership you will avoid all these mistakes reasons people fail hill also lists 30 main

reasons people fail in life which includes things like lack of purpose lack of education ill health

lack of self-discipline procrastination over caution lack of capital and egotism




Principle 7 Decision

The mastery of  procrastination





decision the mastery of procrastination , procrastination the

opposite of decision is a common enemy which practically every man must conquer

procrastination must be conquered for success to flourish successful people reach definite

decisions quickly and change their decisions slowly people who fail to accumulate wealth

do the opposite and they are often too easily influenced by the opinions of others

close friends and relatives while not meaning to do so often handicap one through opinions

thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through their life because

some well-meaning but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through opinions or ridicule

be careful when you heed the opinions of others your desire needs to be your own desire

but if you are influenced easily by others you will have no desire of your own

when you have a definite purpose with a burning desire you can reach decisions

in your life quickly and stand by those decisions you have made indecisiveness

is a habit it can begin to develop in your adolescence and grow stronger as you age

freedom or death on a decision tell the world what you intend to do but first show it

becoming definite in your decisions requires courage  






people who talk too much tend not to do anything else but just talk be a doer not a talker

the book advises you to use your mouth less and your eyes and your ears more

  

Principle 8 Persistence

The sustained effort  necessary to induce faith





persistence the sustained effort necessary to induce faith desire and willpower

persistence is essential in transforming desire into its monetary equivalent

when you can combine desire with strong willpower they become a formidable pair lack of persistence

is very common among people without persistence you will fail before you have even begun people

who develop persistence know that every failure carries with it a seed of an equivalent advantage

for people with persistence they know that failures are only temporary and that they

will eventually reach their goal persistence has a direct correlation to the intensity of your desire

weak desires bring weak results just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat

you can remedy a lack of persistence by intensifying or building a stronger fire

beneath your desire poverty conscious verse money conscious

fortunes gravitate to those whose minds have been prepared to attract them

just as surely as water gravitates to the ocean in the absence of money consciousness driven by

persistence and desire a poverty mindset will naturally fill the void poverty consciousness

will voluntarily seize the mind which is not occupied with the money consciousness

persistence is a state of mind persistence is a state of mind therefore it can be cultivated  


here are eight ways to develop a persistent 




state of mind

1. one purpose know what you want

2. desire 3.self-reliance believe in your abilities 4.definiteness of plans

plans encourage persistence 5.accurate knowledge guessing destroys persistence knowing

encourages persistence 6.cooperation be willing to work with others 7.willpower 8.habit

persistence is the direct result of building daily habits the fear of criticism people

refuse to take chances in business because they fear the criticism which may follow if they fail

the fear of criticism in such cases is stronger than the desire of success the fear of criticism

is the opposite of persistence most people allow others to influence their lives so much so that

the fear of criticism outweighs the will to be persistent fear of failure becomes

stronger than the desire to be successful and when fear is greater than desire you will fail

most ideas are still born and need the breath of life injected into them through definite plans

of immediate action the fear of criticism is at the bottom of the destruction of most ideas

which never reach the planning and action stage four steps to develop persistence

one a definite purpose backed by a burning desire knowing exactly what you want and having a desire

to achieve it this can't be a vague desire it needs to be crystal clear in your mind

two a definite plan a written plan that is expressed in continuous action three

a mind closed to negativity a mind that repels negative thoughts and influences four

a friendly alliance with other like-minded people to share encouragement and purpose

developing persistence will allow you to control your own economic destiny


Principle 9 the power of the mastermind

The driving force  




the power of the mastermind the driving force

if you want to get where you're going faster then you need to find people who can guide

you towards that goal faster a speedier arrival at your desire can be achieved

through the power of the mastermind power is required for the accumulation of money

and then the retention of that money organized knowledge is essential for success

and it is achieved through the coordination of effort of two or more people working in harmony

no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third invisible intangible force

which may be likened to a third mind napoleon hill suggests to form a group of 12 or less people and

the smaller the better




Principle 10 the mystery of  sex transmutation

10th step to riches






the mystery of sex transmutation the 10th step to riches sexual

desire the word transmute means the changing or transferring of one element or form of energy

into another sexual desire is the most powerful of all the human desires and when you're able

to harness this energy it can be directed towards developing a keenness of imagination

courage willpower persistence creativity and the accumulation of wealth genius is developed

through the sixth sense sex transmutation will lift one to the status of a genius

keep in mind that just having this energy is not enough this energy must first be

transmuted from a desire for physical contact into another desire such as art literature

or the accumulation of riches before the status of genius can be achieved

mind stimuli a mind stimuli is anything that makes your mind vibrate on a higher frequency and gives

you enthusiasm creativity and intense desire the motivational power of sex is stronger than

any other stimulant and it can lift your mind to a higher plane which could otherwise not be accessed

other stimulants include love a burning desire for fame a desire for power music

friendship a mastermind alliance mutual suffering auto suggestion fear and narcotics and alcohol

when left to its own devices sexual energy can become detrimental

uncontrollable and even destructive

however if guided by the emotions of love and romance it becomes a constructive force that

can break down the barriers between the finite mind of humans and the infinite intelligence



principle 11 the subconscious mind

The connecting  link








the subconscious mind the connecting link the subconscious mind works day and night and

consists of a field of consciousness in which every impulse of thought positive or negative

reaches the mind through any of the five senses and is classified and recorded

these records can be called upon at a later time to retrieve thoughts the subconscious mind

is the connecting link between the finite mind of man and the infinite intelligence

it is the intermediary through which one may draw upon the forces of infinite intelligence at will





you can think of your subconscious mind as the gateway to the infinite intelligence you cannot

fully control your subconscious mind however you can plant seeds within it to help give rise to 



 


your desires and purpose the subconscious mind will then begin to act upon your burning desires

and manifest them into their physical form it is more susceptible to thoughts mixed with feelings

and emotions negative emotions automatically find their way into your thoughts and positive emotions  




need to intentionally be injected into the mind through auto suggestion positive and negative

emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time one or the other must dominate it is your

responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of your mind

the major positive emotions are desire faith love sex enthusiasm romance and hope


  


the major negative emotions are fear jealousy hatred revenge greed superstition and anger

if you are repeatedly filling your mind with positive emotions through auto suggestion

there will be no room for negative emotions to flourish


Principle 12 the brain

A broadcasting  and receiving station for thought







the brain a broadcasting

and receiving station for thought the brains of every human are like broadcasting stations

capable of receiving vibrations of thought which is sent out by other brains the creative

imagination is the receiving side our subconscious is the transmitting side in order to transmit your

message out into the universe auto suggestion is used these vibrations are like the intangible

forces all around us that control our lives and are completely unseen the power of your mind is

like the unseen forces of gravity we can't see or touch it but we know that it's there




principle 13 the sixth sense

The door to the  temple of wisdom this principle




the sixth sense the door to the temple of wisdom this principle is the apex of

the philosophy and it can only be applied once you have mastered all of the other principles 


 


through this principle you can access the infinite intelligence without any effort or demands the

sixth sense is the part of the mind which gives you insights and guidance towards your desires

in the form of hunches and inspiration and it can be better understood through meditation and mental

development from within with the sixth sense you will be warned of impending dangers to avoid

and given advanced insight into opportunities that you can embrace the sixth sense can

be thought of as a guardian angel that will open the temple of wisdom to you at all times





epilogue how to outwit the six ghosts of fear six basic fears there are six basic fears which

all humans face at some point in their lives the fear of poverty the fear of criticism the

fear of ill health the fear of loss of love the fear of old age and the fear of death

the three enemies if you want to be successful and achieve your desires you first need to eliminate

three enemies from your life they are indecision doubt and fear if any of these negative elements

are in your mind it will suppress the sixth sense and disconnect you from the infinite intelligence  




these enemies are closely related and conspire to infiltrate your mind

indecision stems from fear indecision creates doubt and when the two are combined they

create fear when you give into fear you let other people's decisions guide you

you let negative opinions influence you you need to think and act for yourself

you cannot control most things in life but there is only one thing that you have absolute control

over and that's your mind you either control your mind or it controls you the most practical of all

methods for controlling the mind is a habit of keeping it busy with a definite purpose backed

by a definite plan people who do not succeed have one distinguishing trait in common they know all

the reasons for failure and have what they believe to be airtight alibis to explain away their own

lack of achievement but you can't use your alibis to pay for things and no one cares about all the

reasons why you failed the world only wants to know one thing have you achieved success

if I had money if I had a good education if i didn't have a wife and family if i could get a job

if only I had time if times were better if the economy was better if I'd been given a chance

in life if other people didn't have it in for me if only i were younger if i could only do

what i want if i had been born rich if I could meet the right people if only i had

my possibilities if i could take something if i could just get a break and on and on and on

the worst part is people cling to these alibis because they created them and a person's alibi

is the child of their own imagination it is human nature to defend one's own brain child

how you can get started with think and grow rich first have a burning desire

what do you want to achieve in your life be it monetary or otherwise weak desires bring weak

results so what is your burning desire make your desire your own don't live someone else's desire

that is your first step second create a clear written statement following the six steps that

we covered in the video don't hesitate if you currently don't have all the details or answers

on how you're going to achieve that desire but just get started now third begin using auto

suggestion morning and night start planting the seeds of your desire into your subconscious mind

flush out all your negative thought patterns replace it with a money conscious state

we want our subconscious mind working in harmony with us and not against us and don't forget that

idle minds create the poverty consciousness fourth what specialized knowledge do you need to attain

your desire remember that nothing is for free in this life so what are you going to give in return

for the money that you desire get to work seeking the knowledge that you need which is

conducive to your burning desire are you going to find the specialized knowledge on Instagram

Facebook Netflix most probably not so make sure you make more time for this specialized knowledge

and less time for useless cat memes fifth start working on your creative imagination muscles

if you can't vividly imagine your desire then how do you expect to achieve it you

need to mix your auto suggestion with this creative imagination see the money in your

bank account see yourself already living that desire make sure you go to that place regularly

in your mind sixth persistence use the eight ways we covered to build a persistent state of mind

and persist until your desire is fulfilled seventh don't forget that if you are someone

that finds it hard to reach decisions easily it could be contributing to your failures in life

look at the people around you who end up living their lives in ways that they never wanted to live

and it's just because they fell into the habit of indecision your decision making should be in

alignment with your burning desire so if someone is asking you to do something that is not in

alignment just say no get comfortable with saying no more often unless it is a hell yes eighth

you can reach your desire faster by one forming a mastermind two through positive mind stimulants or

three sexual desire which is the most powerful mind stimulant if you can harness this energy

and not always seek it in its physical form you can guide the energy towards your burning desire

hill may have been referring to what some people nowadays consider the benefits of the "nofap"

theory which is heightened awareness more focus lower levels of stress decreased laziness etc.

think of all these like your rocket boosters that will give you

more speed any of the seven positive emotions we covered are the fuel for your subconscious mind

and they will keep the seven negative emotions out of your mind as often as possible

ninth once you have mastered all those steps your faith in yourself to achieve your desire will grow

your ability to communicate with the infinite intelligence will increase

and whether you want to believe in the infinite intelligence or the sixth sense is up to you

you can think of it in the supernatural sense that napoleon hill refers to it as

or you can think of these concepts as a heightened state of mind whereby our thoughts are more

actively seeking solutions to the problems we need to solve to achieve our burning desire

in parting I would remind you that life is a checkerboard and the player opposite you is

time if you hesitate before moving or neglect to move promptly your mem will be wiped off

by time you are playing against a partner who will not tolerate indecision you have the privilege

of creating in your own mind a burning desire no one can judge it no one can take it away from you

there is no penalty if you create a desire but for not having any desire in life

the price is failure the reward is worthy of your effort will you make the start

As well as delving into more abstract topics such as the subconscious mind and the infinite

intelligence. Make sure you stick around until the end of this video where we tie together everything

that we've learnt and we go over all the action steps that you can take to get started with the

think and grow rich method immediately. Let's jump into it! Introduction. Thoughts are things.

Truly thoughts are things and powerful things at that when they are mixed with definiteness of

purpose persistence and a burning desire for their translation into riches or other material objects

the inventor and the _____ Many years ago a man by the name of Edwin Barnes had a burning desire to

become a business associate of the great inventor Thomas Edison. What began as just a thought

became reality. When this desire flashed into his mind He did not know Edison nor

did he have any plans or answers as to how he would make it a reality. He did not even have

enough money for the train ticket. All he had was a burning desire. Most would have given up

at this point but Barnes hitched a ride on a freight train all the way to New Jersey.

He presented himself to Edison and proclaimed his intentions of becoming Edison's business partner.

Thomas Edison later said "He stood there before me like an ordinary ______ but

there was something about the expression of his face which conveyed the impression

he was determined to get what he had come after. I had learned from years of

experience that when a man really desires something so deeply that he's willing to

stake his entire future on a single turn of the wheel in order to get it.

He is sure to win. I gave him the opportunity he had asked for because. I saw he had made up his

mind to stand by until he succeeded subsequent events proved no mistake had been made ".

Although by no means was he made a partner on that first day he was however given a role and

slowly over the years did end up becoming Edison's business partner and an exceptionally wealthy man.

In other words thought impulses can be turned into material rewards. Three feet from gold. One of

the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat

before success in anyone's life is achieved failures and temporary defeats are sure to arise

all too often success comes just one step beyond the point of which defeat has overtaken you.

You just need to hold on and persevere through these temporary defeats

More than 500 of the most successful individuals this country has ever known have told me that

their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them

failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning it takes great delight in tripping

one when success is almost within reach. You are the master of your fate and captain of your soul

Everyone has the ability to control their thoughts so therefore they are able to control their fate

Our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds. By means which no

one fully understands these dominating thoughts like magnets attract to us the forces, the people,

the circumstances of life, which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.

Principle ONE desire the starting point of all achievement. It was not hope it was not a wish

it was a keen pulsating desire which transcended everything else it was definite. This is the

first step towards riches Hill stresses that desire is not just a wish or a hope it must

be a burning desire such that it is a consuming obsession backed by definiteness and persistence

there is a legend of an ancient commander in his army which was greatly outnumbered

they sailed for miles and reached the shores of the enemy he ordered his men

to disembark onto the beach but the commander knew that the greatest enemy of all was fear

inspired by this belief he eliminated the only possible source of retreat

burn the ships he commanded you see the boats going up in smoke that means that

we cannot leave these shores alive unless we win we now have no choice we win or we perish

in order to be successful you must be willing to burn the ships and eliminate all sources of

retreat and surrender only then will you have a state of mind that is conducive with a burning

desire to win when Barnes visited Thomas Edison. Barnes did not say I will try to induce Edison

to give me a job of some sort he said I will see Edison and inform him that I have come to go into

business with him he did not say I will work there for a few months and if I get no encouragement I

will quit my unfulfilling job he said I will start anywhere and do anything Edison tells me to do

but before I am through I will be his associate he did not say I will keep my eyes open for another

opportunity in case I fail to get what I want in the Edison organization he said there is but one

thing in the world that I am determined to have and that is a business association with Thomas

Edison I will burn all bridges around me and stake my entire future on my ability to get what I want.

Columbus dreamt of an unknown world staked his life on the existence of such a world

and discovered it Copernicus the great astronomer dreamt of a multiplicity of worlds

and revealed them Marconi dreamt of a system for harnessing the intangible forces of the ether

and revealed the radio to the world dreams are the seedlings of reality no one is ready for a

thing until they believe they can acquire it the state of mind must be belief not mere hope or wish

open-mindedness is essential for belief closed minds do not inspire faith courage

and belief remember no more effort is required to aim high in life

to demand abundance and prosperity then is required to accept misery and poverty

hill outlines six steps to achieving your desire to be applied with the other 12 principles

the method by which desire for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent

consists of six definite and practical steps

one fixing your mind the exact amount of money you desire this number cannot be vague it must

be an exact amount two determine exactly what you will give in return for that money

three establish a definite date that you want to be in possession of the money four create

a definite plan for attaining your desire and begin immediately five take steps one to four and

summarize them into clear and concise statement of the amount deadline and plan to achieve it six

read this statement aloud twice a day when you wake up in the morning and once again before you

sleep when reading aloud you must visualize yourself already in possession of that money

wishing will not bring riches but desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession

then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches and backing those plans with persistence

which does not recognize failure will bring riches here is an example of a written statement

by the first day of September i will have my possession 250 000 which will come to me in

various amounts during the interim in return for this money i will give the most efficient service

of which i am capable in my capacity as founder of the XYZ startup i believe that i'll have this

money in my possession my faith is so strong that i can now see this money before my eyes

i am awaiting a plan and i will follow the plan when it is received

tailor the written statement to match your own desire and sign your name at the bottom

you will be using this written statement when it comes to the principle of auto suggestion

creative visualization napoleon hill's instructions to see yourself as you will

be when you have already achieved your goal is what modern day motivational

experts call creative visualization you can think of this process in just the same way

as athletes visualize the outcome of a game or a fight before it has occurred

this method is explored in more detail in the principle of auto suggestion

the other you every failure brings with it a seed of an equivalent success

when you focus only on your failures in life you attract more negativity to yourself

try to instead cultivate a friendship with what hill refers to as the other you

you can think of the other you as an alter ego that recognizes no defeat

make this side of you an ally that shares your goals and your desires

principle 2 faith visualization of and belief in attainment of desire

faith is a head chemist of the mind when faith is blended with the vibration of thought the

subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration translates it into its spiritual equivalent

and transmits it to the infinite intelligence faith look around at some of the biggest

companies in the world they all began as thoughts in the minds of one or two people

there are fortunes being made around you every single day and those fortunes began

as ideas only when you actually believe and have faith that you can attain your desire will you

be ready to do so your faith can be developed through ongoing affirmations and visualization

of your desire faith is one of the most powerful positive emotions we have alongside sex and love

through the power of these three emotions we are able to reach our subconscious mind

these thoughts can then be translated and received by the infinite intelligence

in reality faith is a state of mind which you can foster through repeated signals

to the subconscious mind hill refers to this practice throughout the book as auto suggestion

people eventually become their thought patterns and when your thoughts are dominated by positive

emotions and a burning desire all forces are guided towards acts and deeds that accomplish

that desire strange forces both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought your

thoughts are like a magnetic force that attracts similar thought patterns that are in harmony with

your own your thoughts begin to become real in the physical world you manifest reality

similarly the subconscious mind cannot differentiate between positive

and negative thought patterns so someone who feels like they are destined to be

poor and only fill their subconscious mind with negative thoughts attract just that

there are millions of people who believe themselves doomed to poverty and failure

because of some strange force over which they believe they have no control they are

the creators of their own misfortunes because of this negative belief which is picked up

by their subconscious mind and translated into its physical equivalent planting seeds

thoughts which are mixed with any of the feelings of emotions constitute a magnetic force

which attracts from the vibrations of the ether other similar or related thoughts a thought thus

magnetized with emotion may be compared to a seed which when planted in fertile

soil germinates grows and multiplies itself over and over again until that

which was originally once a small seed becomes countless millions of seeds of the same brand

the main idea is that any idea goal or purpose can be planted into your subconscious mind

through repetition again be careful what you think about because the subconscious mind

cannot in any way differentiate between constructive and destructive thoughts

principle 3 auto suggestion the medium for influencing the subconscious mind your

subconscious mind recognizes and acts upon only thoughts which have been well mixed with emotion

or feeling auto suggestion is a vehicle which we can use to stimulate and guide our subconscious

mind to work for us how you view the world and view yourself as what your subconscious

mind takes in it cannot differentiate between positive or negative thoughts so if your thoughts

are generally negative your subconscious mind will get to work at manifesting those negative thoughts

into reality we want to try and flush out these negative thoughts and emotions and replace them

with seeds of positive thoughts and emotions we can achieve this through auto suggestion

auto suggestion is the vehicle which we can use to stimulate and guide our subconscious mind to work

for us this process is achieved by repeated self suggestions that use the five senses in order for

our suggestions to the subconscious mind to have an impact they first need to be mixed with emotion

here is how you can stimulate and guide the subconscious mind

first go to a quiet place close your eyes and repeat aloud the amount of money you intend to

accumulate the time limit for its accumulation and a description of the service or product you

intend to give in return by the first day of September I will have in my possession

two hundred and fifty thousand dollars which will come to me in various amounts during the interim

in return for this money I will give the most efficient service of which I am capable

in my capacity as founder of the XYZ startup I believe that I will have this money in my

possession my faith is so strong that I can now see this money before my eyes

I am awaiting a plan and I will follow that plan when it's received

second repeat this statement night and morning until you can see in your imagination the money

you intend to accumulate lastly place a written copy of your statement where you can see it in

the morning and night read it just before bed and again upon arising until it has been memorized

these instructions at first may seem abstract or even silly and skepticism is normal for all

human beings do not let this disturb you stick to the plan and soon skepticism will be overcome by

belief you'll begin to notice your mind thinking about how to make more money and everything else

less and through repetition you voluntarily create thought habits that can influence the subconscious

mind and transmute your desire into its monetary equivalent reading out your statement once is

easy what is challenging is turning these into thought habits by continual daily repetitions

until the desire is achieved remember we can't just read the statement once and expect results

we need to be bombarding the subconscious mind with positive thoughts directed towards our

desire over time and we cannot allow any space for negative thoughts and emotions to flourish

continual repetition of the statement will begin to open the universe to your thoughts you will

have a heightened awareness of ideas and insights that will come to you in the form of hunches and

inspiration and the universe will guide you towards the plan of achieving your desire

your ability to use the principle of auto suggestion will depend very largely upon

your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession

continual repetition of the statement will begin to open the universe to your thoughts

principle 4 specialized knowledge personal experiences or observations wealth is often

accumulated from having specialized knowledge however knowledge in itself does not create wealth

knowledge only becomes power when it is organized into definite plans of action

and directed to a definite end

knowledge can be general or specialized general knowledge is of little use in wealth accumulation

specialized knowledge of the service or product you intend to provide is required in return for

wealth he'll suggest to identify the specialized knowledge you need for your product or service

and then to attain that knowledge instead of just working with what current knowledge you have

principle 5 imagination the workshop of the mind the impulse the desire is given shape form

and action through the aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind if you want to make your

desire a reality you need to add imagination with specialized knowledge two forms of imagination

hill explains there are two different forms of imagination synthetic imagination and creative

imagination our only limitation within reason lies in the development and use of our imagination

synthetic imagination is arranging concepts and ideas into new combinations

this type of imagination is primarily used to attain wealth creative imagination is

through the use of hunches and inspiration to better read the subconscious minds of others

great leaders become very good at this type of imagination

imagination is like a muscle both types of imagination become stronger with use and

weaker without use the infinite intelligence for famed psychologist Carl Jung infinite intelligence

was the collective unconscious psychologists nowadays may refer to the infinite intelligence as

being in the zone or in the flow state for most people it is hard to imagine that thoughts can

be something tangible but if everything in the universe is made up of matter or energy

and thoughts create energy by sending little packets of photons throughout the brain are they

not in some regard something tangible are they creating small vibrations out into the universe

with quantum physics the quantum realm and theoretical science like string theory

it has never been easier to imagine a world where in fact our consciousness is somehow

connected to the universe and others around us in ways we don't yet fully understand

ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes ideas are the products of the imagination

principle six organized planning the crystallization of desire into action

millions of people go through life in misery and poverty because they lack a sound plan

through which to accumulate a fortune our plans are organized and planned in the workshop of

our imagination you should become part of a group otherwise known as a mastermind ally yourself with

like-minded individuals that you will need for the creation and deployment of your plans decide in

advance what advantages or benefits you will offer the other members be it monetary or otherwise

meet with the mastermind group at least twice a week until you have jointly perfected the plan

maintain complete harmony between the mastermind members and yourself a quitter never wins and a

winner never quits if your first plans fail replace them with other plans until you find

plans which reach the desire this principle rewards those who persist until successful

and weeds out the people who want success but only if it's not difficult leaders and followers

it is no disgrace to be a follower on the other hand it is no credit to remain a follower most

great leaders began in the capacity of followers they became great leaders

because they were intelligent followers if you find yourself under someone else's leadership

make sure you use that opportunity to gain knowledge the major attributes of leadership

you need to evolve into a leader in your field to acquire riches however in the beginning you

may start as an intelligent follower napoleon hill explains 11 important factors of leadership

1. unwavering courage no one will follow someone without self-confidence

2 self-control if you can't control yourself how can you control others 3. a keen sense of

justice you need to be fair four definiteness of decision no second guessing yourself

five definiteness of plans plan your work and work your plan

six the habit of doing more than paid for do more than your followers would be willing to do

7. a pleasing personality respect is linked to positive personality traits

8. sympathy and understanding 9. mastery of detail get good at the small details 10 willingness

to assume full responsibility take ownership of your mistakes and don't shift the blame to others

eleven cooperation ten minds working together are better than one in the book this principle

also covers the ten negative traits of leaders however most of these are just the opposite of

the successful leadership traits we just went over moreover if you stick to these important factors

of leadership you will avoid all these mistakes reasons people fail hill also lists 30 main

reasons people fail in life which includes things like lack of purpose lack of education ill health

lack of self discipline procrastination over caution lack of capital and egotism

principle 7 decision the mastery of procrastination procrastination the

opposite of decision is a common enemy which practically every man must conquer

procrastination must be conquered for success to flourish successful people reach definite

decisions quickly and change their decisions slowly people who fail to accumulate wealth

do the opposite and they are often too easily influenced by the opinions of others

close friends and relatives while not meaning to do so often handicap one through opinions

thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through their life because

some well-meaning but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through opinions or ridicule

be careful when you heed the opinions of others your desire needs to be your own desire

but if you are influenced easily by others you will have no desire of your own

when you have a definite purpose with a burning desire you can reach decisions

in your life quickly and stand by those decisions you have made indecisiveness

is a habit it can begin to develop in your adolescence and grow stronger as you age

freedom or death on a decision tell the world what you intend to do but first show it

becoming definite in your decisions requires courage

people who talk too much tend not to do anything else but just talk be a doer not a talker

the book advises you to use your mouth less and your eyes and your ears more

principle 8 persistence the sustained effort necessary to induce faith desire and willpower

persistence is essential in transforming desire into its monetary equivalent

when you can combine desire with strong willpower they become a formidable pair lack of persistence

is very common among people without persistence you will fail before you have even begun people

who develop persistence know that every failure carries with it a seed of an equivalent advantage

for people with persistence they know that failures are only temporary and that they

will eventually reach their goal persistence has a direct correlation to the intensity of your desire

weak desires bring weak results just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat

you can remedy a lack of persistence by intensifying or building a stronger fire

beneath your desire poverty conscious verse money conscious

fortunes gravitate to those whose minds have been prepared to attract them

just as surely as water gravitates to the ocean in the absence of money consciousness driven by

persistence and desire a poverty mindset will naturally fill the void poverty consciousness

will voluntarily seize the mind which is not occupied with the money consciousness

persistence is a state of mind persistence is a state of mind therefore it can be cultivated

here are eight ways to develop a persistent state of mind one purpose know what you want

two desire three self-reliance believe in your abilities four definiteness of plans

plans encourage persistence five accurate knowledge guessing destroys persistence knowing

encourages persistence six cooperation be willing to work with others seven willpower eight habit

persistence is the direct result of building daily habits the fear of criticism people

refuse to take chances in business because they fear the criticism which may follow if they fail

the fear of criticism in such cases is stronger than the desire of success the fear of criticism

is the opposite of persistence most people allow others to influence their lives so much so that

the fear of criticism outweighs the will to be persistent fear of failure becomes

stronger than the desire to be successful and when fear is greater than desire you will fail

most ideas are still born and need the breath of life injected into them through definite plans

of immediate action the fear of criticism is at the bottom of the destruction of most ideas

which never reach the planning and action stage four steps to develop persistence

one a definite purpose backed by a burning desire knowing exactly what you want and having a desire

to achieve it this can't be a vague desire it needs to be crystal clear in your mind

two a definite plan a written plan that is expressed in continuous action three

a mind closed to negativity a mind that repels negative thoughts and influences four

a friendly alliance with other like-minded people to share encouragement and purpose

developing persistence will allow you to control your own economic destiny

principle 9 the power of the mastermind the driving force

if you want to get where you're going faster then you need to find people who can guide

you towards that goal faster a speedier arrival at your desire can be achieved

through the power of the mastermind power is required for the accumulation of money

and then the retention of that money organized knowledge is essential for success

and it is achieved through the coordination of effort of two or more people working in harmony

no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third invisible intangible force

which may be likened to a third mind napoleon hill suggests to form a group of 12 or less people and

the smaller the better principle 10 the mystery of sex transmutation the 10th step to riches sexual

desire the word transmute means the changing or transferring of one element or form of energy

into another sexual desire is the most powerful of all the human desires and when you're able

to harness this energy it can be directed towards developing a keenness of imagination

courage willpower persistence creativity and the accumulation of wealth genius is developed

through the sixth sense sex transmutation will lift one to the status of a genius

keep in mind that just having this energy is not enough this energy must first be

transmuted from a desire for physical contact into another desire such as art literature

or the accumulation of riches before the status of genius can be achieved

mind stimuli a mind stimuli is anything that makes your mind vibrate on a higher frequency and gives

you enthusiasm creativity and intense desire the motivational power of sex is stronger than

any other stimulant and it can lift your mind to a higher plane which could otherwise not be accessed

other stimulants include love a burning desire for fame a desire for power music

friendship a mastermind alliance mutual suffering auto suggestion fear and narcotics and alcohol

when left to its own devices sexual energy can become detrimental

uncontrollable and even destructive

however if guided by the emotions of love and romance it becomes a constructive force that

can break down the barriers between the finite mind of humans and the infinite intelligence

principle 11 the subconscious mind the connecting link the subconscious mind works day and night and

consists of a field of consciousness in which every impulse of thought positive or negative

reaches the mind through any of the five senses and is classified and recorded

these records can be called upon at a later time to retrieve thoughts the subconscious mind

is the connecting link between the finite mind of man and the infinite intelligence

it is the intermediary through which one may draw upon the forces of infinite intelligence at will

you can think of your subconscious mind as the gateway to the infinite intelligence you cannot

fully control your subconscious mind however you can plant seeds within it to help give rise to

your desires and purpose the subconscious mind will then begin to act upon your burning desires

and manifest them into their physical form it is more susceptible to thoughts mixed with feelings

and emotions negative emotions automatically find their way into your thoughts and positive emotions

need to intentionally be injected into the mind through auto suggestion positive and negative

emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time one or the other must dominate it is your

responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of your mind

the major positive emotions are desire faith love sex enthusiasm romance and hope

the major negative emotions are fear jealousy hatred revenge greed superstition and anger

if you are repeatedly filling your mind with positive emotions through auto suggestion

there will be no room for negative emotions to flourish principle 12 the brain a broadcasting

and receiving station for thought the brains of every human are like broadcasting stations

capable of receiving vibrations of thought which is sent out by other brains the creative

imagination is the receiving side our subconscious is the transmitting side in order to transmit your

message out into the universe auto suggestion is used these vibrations are like the intangible

forces all around us that control our lives and are completely unseen the power of your mind is

like the unseen forces of gravity we can't see or touch it but we know that it's there

principle 13 the sixth sense the door to the temple of wisdom this principle is the apex of

the philosophy and it can only be applied once you have mastered all of the other principles

through this principle you can access the infinite intelligence without any effort or demands the

sixth sense is the part of the mind which gives you insights and guidance towards your desires

in the form of hunches and inspiration and it can be better understood through meditation and mental

development from within with the sixth sense you will be warned of impending dangers to avoid

and given advanced insight into opportunities that you can embrace the sixth sense can

be thought of as a guardian angel that will open the temple of wisdom to you at all times

epilogue how to outwit the six ghosts of fear six basic fears there are six basic fears which

all humans face at some point in their lives the fear of poverty the fear of criticism the

fear of ill health the fear of loss of love the fear of old age and the fear of death

the three enemies if you want to be successful and achieve your desires you first need to eliminate

three enemies from your life they are indecision doubt and fear if any of these negative elements

are in your mind it will suppress the sixth sense and disconnect you from the infinite intelligence

these enemies are closely related and conspire to infiltrate your mind

indecision stems from fear indecision creates doubt and when the two are combined they

create fear when you give into fear you let other people's decisions guide you

you let negative opinions influence you you need to think and act for yourself

you cannot control most things in life but there is only one thing that you have absolute control

over and that's your mind you either control your mind or it controls you the most practical of all

methods for controlling the mind is a habit of keeping it busy with a definite purpose backed

by a definite plan people who do not succeed have one distinguishing trait in common they know all

the reasons for failure and have what they believe to be airtight alibis to explain away their own

lack of achievement but you can't use your alibis to pay for things and no one cares about all the

reasons why you failed the world only wants to know one thing have you achieved success

if I had money if I had a good education if i didn't have a wife and family if i could get a job

if only I had time if times were better if the economy was better if I'd been given a chance

in life if other people didn't have it in for me if only i were younger if i could only do

what i want if i had been born rich if I could meet the right people if only i had

my possibilities if i could take something if i could just get a break and on and on and on

the worst part is people cling to these alibis because they created them and a person's alibi

is the child of their own imagination it is human nature to defend one's own brain child

how you can get started with think and grow rich first have a burning desire

what do you want to achieve in your life be it monetary or otherwise weak desires bring weak

results so what is your burning desire make your desire your own don't live someone else's desire

that is your first step second create a clear written statement following the six steps that

we covered in the video don't hesitate if you currently don't have all the details or answers

on how you're going to achieve that desire but just get started now third begin using auto

suggestion morning and night start planting the seeds of your desire into your subconscious mind

flush out all your negative thought patterns replace it with a money conscious state

we want our subconscious mind working in harmony with us and not against us and don't forget that

idle minds create the poverty consciousness fourth what specialized knowledge do you need to attain

your desire remember that nothing is for free in this life so what are you going to give in return

for the money that you desire get to work seeking the knowledge that you need which is

conducive to your burning desire are you going to find the specialized knowledge on Instagram

Facebook Netflix most probably not so make sure you make more time for this specialized knowledge

and less time for useless cat memes fifth start working on your creative imagination muscles

if you can't vividly imagine your desire then how do you expect to achieve it you

need to mix your auto suggestion with this creative imagination see the money in your

bank account see yourself already living that desire make sure you go to that place regularly

in your mind sixth persistence use the eight ways we covered to build a persistent state of mind

and persist until your desire is fulfilled seventh don't forget that if you are someone

that finds it hard to reach decisions easily it could be contributing to your failures in life

look at the people around you who end up living their lives in ways that they never wanted to live

and it's just because they fell into the habit of indecision your decision making should be in

alignment with your burning desire so if someone is asking you to do something that is not in

alignment just say no get comfortable with saying no more often unless it is a hell yes eighth

you can reach your desire faster by one forming a mastermind two through positive mind stimulants or

three sexual desire which is the most powerful mind stimulant if you can harness this energy

and not always seek it in its physical form you can guide the energy towards your burning desire

hill may have been referring to what some people nowadays consider the benefits of the "nofap"

theory which is heightened awareness more focus lower levels of stress decreased laziness etc.

think of all these like your rocket boosters that will give you

more speed any of the seven positive emotions we covered are the fuel for your subconscious mind

and they will keep the seven negative emotions out of your mind as often as possible

ninth once you have mastered all those steps your faith in yourself to achieve your desire will grow

your ability to communicate with the infinite intelligence will increase

and whether you want to believe in the infinite intelligence or the sixth sense is up to you

you can think of it in the supernatural sense that napoleon hill refers to it as

or you can think of these concepts as a heightened state of mind whereby our thoughts are more

actively seeking solutions to the problems we need to solve to achieve our burning desire

in parting I would remind you that life is a checkerboard and the player opposite you is

time if you hesitate before moving or neglect to move promptly your mem will be wiped off

by time you are playing against a partner who will not tolerate indecision you have the privilege

of creating in your own mind a burning desire no one can judge it no one can take it away from you

there is no penalty if you create a desire but for not having any desire in life

the price is failure the reward is worthy of your effort will you make the start

just before you jump off thank you so much for making it to the end of the Blog
