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.
