Wealth.  Is it Eluding You?


“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve.”  Napoleon Hill

Think and Grow Rich is the brain-child of both Andrew Carnegie and Dr. Napoleon Hill and originally published after almost 25 years of researching the Laws of Success in 1937.  The book and its principles are still sought and implemented today by anyone wanting to understand wealth and the money-making secrets that changes lives.

The book teaches the secret of not only what to do, but HOW to do it.  In the simple and basic techniques, you, too can think create great wealth.

We Win or We Perish!  Understand the Fallacy of Having a “Plan B.”

Have you ever wondered what the origin of the term is for “burning desire”?  As Napoleon Hill explains in Chapter 2, Desire, The First Step Towards Riches, a warrior faced a situation which made it necessary for him to make a decision that would ensure his success.  He loaded his men onto boats and sailed into the enemy’s country and after the men had unloaded from the boats, the warrior ordered the ships be burned.  He said to his men: “Do you see the boats going up in smoke? That means we cannot leave these shores alive unless we win!  We win or we perish!”

Many of us do not have a burning desire.  We haven’t taken the time to see how we want to truly live our lives.  We have bought into the story that we must work hard, for someone else and get paid only the value they place upon us and our time.  This story is a belief that has now become part of our cellular memory and it runs our lives.  Until you take the time to create and cultivate your burning desire you will continue to live only a partial of your potential.  To have a burning desire is not to merely have a wish. A burning desire has the potential to be a driving force in your life. It is your passion—it is your reason for being.

Dr. Hill says that any individual, who understands the purpose of money, wishes for wealth. Although wishing for it will not bring about wealth, desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to bring wealth about, will.  When you back those plans with a persistence that does not recognize failure WILL bring riches.

The worst thing you can have as an entrepreneur is a Plan B.  With a Plan B, you are already implanting the seeds of failure into your mind.  You are giving yourself an escape route—a way out, should you fail.  When you realize failure is NOT an option—you will dismiss any Plan B!

Six Ways to Turn Your Desire into Wealth

  • Determine the EXACT amount of financial wealth you desire.  It is psychological and the most important part of becoming wealthy.  Do NOT use the words “a lot, plenty, a great deal” etc.  Fix your mind on an exact dollar amount.
  • Know what you are willing to give in return for this amount of money
  • Establish a definite date in which you wish to possess this sum of money
  • Create your definite action plan for carrying this out and start NOW (being ready is not essential to taking action)
  • Write out a statement, in as much detail as possible, about how much money you will acquire, your timeframe, what you are willing to give in return for obtaining it and the plan of action you will take to accumulate this wealth
  • Read (or if you voice record, listen) to your statement a minimum of 2TIMES EACH DAY.  The best time is when you first wake each morning and just before you go to sleep each night.  In mornings, upon awakening, your brain is in an Alpha state. In Alpha brain state, we begin to access the wealth of creativity that lies just below our conscious awareness – it is the gateway, the entry point, which leads into deeper states of consciousness.  When you read or hear the words of your statement for wealth, you will also visualize attaining it which is essential for manifesting your desire.

“Whatever your mind feeds upon, your mind attracts to you.”  –Napoleon Hill

The steps above call for no hard labor or sacrifice.  To apply the steps requires no formal education.  But the successful application of the 6 steps calls for sufficient imagination to enable you to see and understand that the accumulation of wealth is not to be left to chance or good luck.

A burning desire to be and to do is the starting point for which the dreamer must launch.  Dreams of wealth, or any dreams for that matter, are not born of laziness, indifference or lack of ambition.  “The turning point in the lives of those who succeed usually comes at a point of some crisis, through which they are introduced to their other selves.”  If you are at this point—a crisis point, then you MUST try the 6 Steps outline above. You must purchase the book, Think and Grow Rich, and you must begin applying the principles within its pages.  You must change your thoughts about yourself and your dreams and you must cut out all options other than your dream itself.
