First CREATE A VIVID PICTURE IN YOUR MIND OF EXACTLY WHAT IT IS YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE (could be something small, or perhaps your Major Definite Purpose).
Then, and this is the key part, CULTIVATE A BURNING DESIRE to attain it.
Sounds simple? And it is, but here is the magic in the method... A burning desire is really the ENERGY that you put into believing you can obtain your goal. Other words to describe this state could be PASSIONATE DESIRE, POSITIVE DESIRE OR SUPER-ENTHUSED DESIRE. What these powerful emotive states do is plant your image firmly into your Subconscious Mind, once the Subconscious accepts the idea then it immediately goes to work on realising it for you.
A HIGHLY ENERGETIC person can impress ideas onto his Subconscious Mind much more effectively than someone of average energy levels. I believe this chiefly explains the difference in achievement between people like Bob Proctor, Anthony Robbins etc. and the vast majority of readers who try to emulate them. Without their energy levels it is just much harder and slower to get results.
It is in the area of PERSONAL ENERGY that I think Napoleon Hill provides his best and most original chapter in Think and Grow Rich: Sexual Transmutation. This whole chapter is about channelling our abundant sexual energy and desire into our images/goals. He doesn't talk about chastity but instead taking most of our desire for physical contact and moving this into higher purposes - thus enabling us to tap into our Subconcious Mind easier, and to be more creative and successful as a result.
Here's something for you... take a look at highly successful people on TV, in Business, Politics and Sport etc.Read more ›
If you asked me to recommend to you the single best book I have ever read, my answer would be a very definite "Think and Grow Rich".
First published in 1937, this is the end product of two decades of research conducted by Napoleon Hill. His research started when Andrew Carnegie (the steel tycoon who was then the richest man on earth) gave him the assignment of organizing a Philosophy of Personal Achievement. Hill, who was a poor journalist, armed with just an introductory letter from Carnegie, set out to interview over five hundred successful people including Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, George Eastman, William Wrigley Jr. and Charles M. Schwab. Hill then revealed the priceless wisdom of his research in the form of the thirteen steps to success (in Think and Grow Rich) and the seventeen principles of success (in courses and lectures he conducted).
The concepts taught by Napoleon Hill transformed my life. Some of these include developing a definite purpose, building a Positive Mental Attitude (PMA), channeling the power of the sub-conscious mind and dealing with adversity. Everything he wrote about or talked about is thought provoking. He was wise, humble and funny. His philosophy is universal; he did not mix it with religion. The riches he referred to were more than money, for the Philosophy of Personal Achievement can be applied to anything in life.
Hill was well ahead of his time. This book has a chapter dedicated to some of today's most important issues - Specialized Knowledge, Decision Making, Imagination and Organized Planning (in which he deals with Leadership).Read more ›
