Think and Grow Rich - Chapter II Thoughts

Napoleon Hill

Source : http://www.think-and-grow-rich.net/resource/napoleon-hill.jpg



The contents of the following are taken from the book, "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoloen Hill.

Here are some of the thoughts from the IInd Chapter of the book.

* The chapter starts with a quote called, "What ever the mind of a man can conceive & believe, it can achieve".


* There are six ways to turn desires in to GOLD.

FIRST: Fix in your mind, the exact amount of money you desire. Be specific in your Amount. i.e. Say Rs 10,000 or 1000UKP.

SECOND: Determine exactly what you intend to give in return to the money you desire.
For example: it may be your TV watching time, it may be the time you take to chit chat with your friends, etc..

THIRD: Establish a definite date when you intend to posses the money you desire. Again this has to be specific, like 30th of November.

FOURTH: Create a plan for carrying out your desire and begin executing the plan at once. The plan is critical here. You can choose any means of plan that you are comfortable with.

FIFTH: Now combine the statements you have written in FIRST, SECOND, THIRD and
FOURTH.

SIXTH: Read the statement that is created in step FIVE twice daily.


It is important that you follow the SIXTH step daily, so as to develop a burning desire in your mind about the money what you want. It may seem absurd to imagine about the money , before having it in hand. but the desire would make you to look for the ways
to achieve your goal.


* One must realize that all who have accumulated great fortune first did a certain amount of dreaming, hoping, wishing, desiring and planning before they acquired money


* If the thing you wish to do is right, go ahead and never mind what "they" say if you meet with
temporary defeat, for "they" perhaps do not know that every failure brings with it the seed often equivalent to success.

* Here comes the funny part of this chapter:

When Marconi announced that he had discovered a principle through which he could send messages thru air, his friends took him to examine his mental stability in a Psychopathic hospital

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

* All who succeeded in life get off to a bad start and pass through many heart breaking struggles before they reach success.

Lakshmi Pooja and Raksha Bandan


Lakshman, Ram and Sita - the main deity at the temple

Since it was Varalakshmi pooja today, i had been to the nearest Hindu mandir along with my nearest neighbours Harini and Ulaganathan.

Though i had heard about this temple from my colleagues, i never had been there. It was only due to the neighbours pressure , i was forced to know about this temple!!!!. This was the first time i am going to this temple. Harini anni had made strains to bring some sweets and fruits to the temple. It was a Ram temple and i could assume that the management has taken a full house and restructured to form a temple.

The pooja was nice. Harini anni offered the the sweets and fruits at the padam of the Lord to get the lords wishes. Due to this there was a special pooja offered to us by the pujari. OC'la kadavulooda wishes..!!!! ..

Eventually, we offered the same sweets and fruits to the worshipers as prasadam.

Then came a surprise to me, Ulaganathan sir said Harini wants to tie the rakhi to you. All this time both of them have hidden the rakhi in their bag. It was a total surprise for me. If that's your wish, i said...go ahead anni.

Later she tied the Rakhi to my hand and Ulaganathan sir took snap to catch this moment. Since Rakhi was tied suddenly, i could not give her a present. Atleast manasu vanthu 5 pounds koduthen....

Shoot of The Da Vinci Code - Should it be allowed???

Image Source : http://esoterisme-exp.com/

Dan Brown's famous novel Da Vinci Code has again landed in to controversy as the shooting of the novel is in progress.


Recently the filming of the Da Vinci Code was inaugurated starring Tom Hanks and Ian McKellen.


Ever since the film started , its in to controversy. the reason behind is that, there is an instance in the novel that says.. Jesus got married to a prostitute named Magdalene and had a child out of that relationship.


The churches here in England are divided in their opinion whether to allow the filming of this novel. West Minster Abbey in London (where the novel is set..) has dismissed the book as theologically unsound and has dismissed the application to conduct shooting at its premises.

Though Dan Brown asserts that ..the story is based purely based on fiction. Would any one allow betraying their god ..even in ficton !!!! because i believe that, every religion would assume their god to be the purest soul.

We are aware of the fact that, the Roman Catholics strongly disagreed this story and there was a huge agitation when the novel was released.


Any way, it would be safe for the director Richard Howard to take the film in a way so as not to offend Christian mythology. Otherwise, the film would expect another uproar on its release date.
Considering the title of this article.. its a topic left to debate...

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill



Image Source : www.affordablecovers.com

This week end i received a book from Kannan titled Titled Think and Grow Richby Napoleon Hill.


The Author promises to reveal a "SECRET" which when followed consistenly in our lifewould make us rich. Let me try to find out what the secret is??? !!!!


Some thoughts from the fist chapter of the book..


* There is a quote from Edison that goes like this... " I have learned from years ofexperience with men, that when a man really desires a thing so deeply that he is willingto stake his entire future. he is sure to win".


* Oppurtunity comes in different forms and from different directions, that is one of thetricks of oppurtunity. It has a sly habbit of slipping in by the back door and often itcomes in the form of misfortune.


* Riches cannot always be measured in money. There are great riches in lasting friendships, harmonious family relationships, sympathy and understanding betweenbusiness associates


* One of the weaknessses found in many people is the habit of measuring every thingand every one by their own impression beliefs


Will continue to share my thoughts when ever i find time...
