Think and Grow Rich

Thoughts are things

thoughts are powerful things when mixed with

definiteness of purpose

Persistence

Burning desire, has to be definite

success comes to those who become success conscious

Failure comes to those who indifferently allowed themselves to become failure conscious

the impossible Ford V-8 engine

we must magnetize our minds with intense desire for riches, until the desire for money drives us to create definite plans for acquiring it

Automatically implies that all your negative thinking will influence your subconscious mind and hence direct your life

Desire

Desire is not hope and it is not a wish

it has to be a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything else

It has to be definite

burn the bridges

leave yourself no possible way of retreat

win or parish

stand by your desire until it becomes a dominating obsession of your life and finally a fact

stake your entire future on your ability to get what you want

every person who lives in any undertaking must be willing to burn the ships and cut all sources of retreat, only by so doing can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as burning desire to win essential to success

six steps to turn desires into gold

1. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire, be definite as to the amount

2. determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire, there is nothing as something for nothing

3. Establish a definite date by which you intend to possess the money u desire

4. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin to act at once., whether you're ready or not you have to put the plan into action

5. Write down the following in a clear concise statements, the amount of money you intend to acquire, The time limit for its acquisition, what you intend to give in return for the money, The plan through which you intend to accumulate it

6. read your statement out loud twice every day - before going to bed and after waking up in the morning, as you read see and feel and believe yourself already in possession of the money

if you truly desire money so keenly that your desire is an Obsession you will have no difficulty in convincing yourself that you will acquire it, the object is to want money and to become so determined to have it that you convince yourself you will have it

can you imagine yourself a millionaire

the above six steps call is for no hard labor

They call for no sacrifice

They do not require great education

But they do call for, sufficient imagination to enable one to see, understanding that accumulation of money cannot be left to chance good fortune or lock

all well accumulated great fortunes forced there a certain amount of dreaming hoping desiring and planning before they acquired the money

you can never have riches in great quantities unless you can work yourself into a white heat of desire for money and actually believe you will possess it

The power of great dreams

there is one quality which one must possess to win, that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants precisely, And a burning desire to possess it

other people might challenge your dreams, nevermind what they say if you meet with temporary defeat, they perhaps do not know that every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success, Marconi was taken to a psychopathic hospital when he said that he had discovered the principle through which he could send messages to the air

How to get dreams off the launching pad

a burning desire to be and to do is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off

dreams are not born of indifference laziness or lack of ambition

All who succeed in life get off to a bad start and passed through many heartbreaking struggles before they arrive

Helen Keller, her life served as evidence that no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as reality

no one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it, the state of mind must be belief not mere hope or wish

remember no more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity than is required to accept misery and poverty

Faith

faith is the head chemist of the mind

when fate is blended with thought the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to infinite intelligence

emotions of faith, love and sex are the most powerful of all major positive emotions

when the three are blended they have the effect of coloring thought in such a way that it instantly reaches the subconscious mind, in the subconscious mind the thought is changed into its spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces our restaurants from infinite intelligence

how to develop faith

faith is the state of mind which may be induced or created, by repeated instructions to the subconscious mind through the principle of autosuggestion, through autosuggestion you may convince the subconscious mind that you believe you will receive that for which you ask, the subconscious will act upon that belief which your subconscious mind passes back to you in the form of faith followed by definite plans for procuring that which you desire, repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of emotion of faith, any impulse of thought which is repeatedly passed on to the subconscious mind is finally accepted and acted upon by the subconscious mind, which proceeds to translate that impulse into its physical equivalent, by the most practical procedure available, thoughts X emotions X faith, this will translate the thought into its physical equivalent, the emotions or the feeling portion of thoughts are the factors which give thoughts vitality life and action, The emotions of faith, love and sex when mixed with any thoughts give it greater action than any of these emotions can do singly, not only thought impulses which have been mixed with faith may reach and influence the subconscious mind but also, those which have been mixed with any of the positive emotions, are those which have been mixed with any of the negative emotions

no one is doomed to bad luck

your belief or faith is the elements which determines the action of your subconscious mind, there is nothing to hinder you from Deceiving your subconscious mind when giving instructions through autosuggestion, to make the deceit more realistic conduct yourself just as you would if you were already in the possession of the material things which you are demanding when you call upon your subconscious mind

the subconscious mind will transmute any order, which is given to it in a state of belief or faith, into its physical equivalents by the most direct and practical medium available

a mind dominated by positive emotions becomes a favorable home for the state of mind known as faith, a mind so dominated by faith will give the subconscious mind instructions which it will accept and act upon immediately

faith is a state of mind which may be induced by autosuggestion

Faith is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration of thought created by finite mind of man into the spiritual equivalent

the magic of self suggestion

it is a well-known fact that one comes finally to believe whatever one repeats to oneself whether statement may be true or false

Thoughts which a man deliberately places in his own mind and with which he mixes any one or more of the emotions, constitute the motivating forces which direct and control his every movement act and deed

thoughts which are mixed with any of the feelings of emotions constitute a magnetic force which attracts other similar or related thoughts

a thought magnetized with emotion may be compared to a seed planted in fertile soil

the human mind is constantly attracting vibrations which harmonize with that which dominates the mind, any thoughts, idea, plan, or purpose which one holds in his mind attracts a host of its relativeS, and this thought grows until it becomes the dominating motivating master of the individual in whose mind it has been housed

any idea plan or purpose may be placed in the minds through repetition of thought, that is why you have to write out a statement of your major purpose, commit it to memory and repeat it in audible words day after day until those vibrations of sound have reached your subconscious mind

the application of this principle can be done through a simple arrangement of positive thought impulses stated in writing memorized and repeated until they become a part of your subconscious mind

self-confidence formula

1. I know that I have the inability to achieve the object of my definite purpose in life, therefore, I demand of myself persistent continuous action towards its attainment, and I promise to render such action

2. I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward physical action and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore I will concentrate my thoughts for 30 min. daily on the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture

3. I know tothe principle of autosuggestion

Autosuggestion

What is autosuggestion

All suggestions that reach one's mind through the five senses

Autosuggestion is The agency of communication between conscious mind and the subconscious mind

Autosuggestion is The media for influencing the subconscious mind

Through the dominating thoughts that one permits to remain(whether positive or negative) in the conscious mind autosuggestion voluntarily reaches the subconscious mind and influences it with these thoughts.

Subconscious mind

It is like a garden, If careful plantation cultivation and nurturing is not done weeds will grow in abundance, Autosuggestion is Agency of Control through which an individual May either, In his control Feed his subconscious mind with powerful positive and precise thoughts, Or By neglect permit thoughts of a destructive nature to enter his mind .... the garden

Nature has built the human mind in a way that human being has absolute control over what enters the subconscious mind, However this does not imply that the human being always exercises control on what enters his subconscious minds, In a vast majority of people this control is not exercised, Whatever enters the subconscious mind comes through the five senses

See and feel money in your hands

Your subconscious mind recognizes and acts only upon thoughts which have been mixed with emotions and feelings, Lack of understanding of this is the major reason why most people Who try to apply The principle of autosuggestion never get the desired results, Plain un-emotional words do not influence the subconscious mind, You will get no appreciable results Until you learn to program your subconscious mind with thoughts or words that are mixed with immense emotions and feelings

Your ability to use the principles of autosuggestion Will depend very largely on your capacity to concentrate on a given desire to the point that it becomes a burning obsession, The price you need to pay In order to influence your subconscious mind is everlasting persistence in applying the principles described here, Do not become discouraged if you're unable to do so easily. This is a matter of practice and persistence

In the chapter on desire you were instructed, To Read aloud the statements of your desire for money and, Through repetition of this procedure you create thought habits that help create that burning desire, To see the money already in your possession, To feel the money already in your possession

Strengthening your power of concentration

Six steps to stimulate your subconscious mind

The secret of mental power

The actual performance of transmuting desire into money involves the use of Autosuggestion to get to the subconscious mind, The other principles are simply tools with which to apply autosuggestion

Imagination

Two forms of imagination

Arranging old concepts and ideas into new combinations, This creates nothing, This is what you will use in the process of transforming your desire into money

Synthetic imagination, You will need this for creation of your plans, The moment you reduce your desire into a written plan, you have converted thought into its physical counterpart

Creative imagination, it is through this faculty that the finite mind has communication with infinite intelligence, It only comes into action when the conscious mind is working at a rapid pace for example under the influence of a strong desire

The story of The creation of llinois Institute of technology

Transmuting ideas into money

Riches do not come as a result of hard work and honesty alone

Riches come in response to definite demands and not by chance or luck

organized planning

How to build practical plans

4. Maintain perfect harmony with members of the mastermind

If your first plan fails try a second plan. If the second one fails try a third one. Keep trying

Decision

Lack Of decision is near the top of the list of why people fail

Successful people make decisions fast and change them slowly

People who failed to get rich almost always were unable to make decisions quickly, The majority of people who failed to get rich were those who were easily influenced by others and could not make their own decisions, If you are influenced by the opinion of others you will have no desire of your own

Definiteness of decision always requires courage and sometimes even very great courage

The leaders in every walk of life decide quickly and firmly

Persistence

Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel

Lacking persistance

Weakness in persistence can be cured with your desire for wealth

Money consciousness or poverty consciousness

Money consciousness has to be cultivated and nurtured with conscious effort

Poverty consciousness is like weed. It grows in the garden of your mind without any conscious effort

If one does not persist one cannot achieve Noteworthy success in any calling whatsoever

Average success can be had my many but those who go after the big stakes must have the quality of persistence

You can train yourself to be persistent

Persistence can be cultivated

Persistence is based on the following causes, Definiteness of purpose, Knowing what one wants is perhaps the most important step in the development of persistence, Strong desire, Self-reliance, Your belief and your inability to follow your plan, Definite plans, Organized plans even though they may be weak and entirely impractical, encourage persistence, Accurate knowledge, Cooperation, Willpower, Habit, The mind absorbs and becomes a part of the daily experience on which it feeds, Fear can be overcome by forced repetition off acts of courage

The weaknesses to be mastered in order to obtain riches

Fear of criticism, People fear the criticism of other people Who May say "don't aim so high. people will think you're crazy", New Node, The inner critic says, You cannot do it. It is too big and will take too much time, What will other people think of you, Who are you to aim so high, Why hasn't someone else done this before, Most ideas are born stillborn and they need life injected into them through definite plans of immediate action

How to develop persistence

There is a four step process, 1. Having a definite purpose backed by burning desire for its fulfillment, 2. A definite plan backed by continuous action, 3. A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences, 4. A master mind

Sub-Conscious Mind

The subconscious mind maybe voluntarily directed only through habit under the directions given in the chapter on faith

You have to be patient in order to direct your subconscious mind

Have to be persistent

Your subconscious mind functions voluntarily whether you make any effort to influence it or not

The subconscious mind will not remain idle.

If you fail to plant desires in your subconscious mind, It will feed upon thoughts which reach it as a result of neglect

Thought impulses both negative and positive are reaching the subconscious mind continuously from various sources, We are on living daily in the midst of all sorts of thought impulses which are reaching the subconscious mind without our knowledge

It is your job to shut off the flow of negative and increase the positive ones loaded with emotion

Everything that we create Begins in the form off a thought impulse

We cannot create anything which we do not first conceive in thoughts.
