Vintage Essays By Judy Williamson, Director of the Napoleon Hill World Learning Center at Purdue University Calumnet

Dear Readers,

The mystery of sex transmutation is probably the least discussed success principle that Napoleon Hill wrote about. It also ranks high as the least understood of the success principles.

Transmute simply means the changing or transferring of one element, or form of energy, into another.

Due to ignorance on the subject, sex transmutation is associated with the physical element and many people don’t understand that this can be transformed or directed to the attainment of other goals.

Sex has often been defined as the most powerful of all human desires. When drawn by this desire, humans develop a sense of imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and creative vision. This sex drive is often associated with physical relationships, but it can be harnessed and used as a creative force in any profession. It takes a great deal of will-power and self-discipline to transmute sex drive into energy we can use for our definite major purpose. Yet, all of the great individuals of our time have learned how to use this power to their advantage.

 

I wish you the best,
Don Green

The Law of Success

This is the tenth of a series of excerpts that focus on the “secret” in Think and Grow Rich. What makes these selections so unique is that a keyword was chosen with an emphasis on the secret that Napoleon Hill so often mentioned. I know you will enjoy reading these powerful excerpts.

THE MYSTERY OF SEX TRANSMUTATION
The Tenth Step toward Riches
by Napoleon Hill

The meaning of the word “transmute” is, in simple language, “the changing, or transferring of one element, or form of energy, into another.”

The emotion of sex brings into being a state of mind.

Because of ignorance on the subject, this state of mind is generally associated with the physical, and because of improper influences, to which most people have been subjected, in acquiring knowledge of sex, things essentially physical have highly biased the mind.

The emotion of sex has back of it the possibility of three constructive potentialities, they are:—

  1. The perpetuation of mankind.
  2. The maintenance of health, (as a therapeutic agency, it has no equal).
  3. The transformation of mediocrity into genius through transmutation.

Sex transmutation is simple and easily explained. It means the switching of the mind from thoughts of physical expression, to thoughts of some other nature. .

Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires. When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times. So strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it. When harnessed, and redirected along other lines, this motivating force maintains all of its attributes of keenness of imagination, courage, etc., which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other profession or calling, including, of course, the accumulation of riches.

The transmutation of sex energy calls for the exercise of will-power, to be sure, but the reward is worth the effort. The desire for sexual expression is inborn and natural. The desire cannot, and should not be submerged or eliminated. But it should be given an outlet through forms of expression which enrich the body, mind, and spirit of man. If not given this form of outlet, through transmutation, it will seek outlets through purely physical channels.

A river may be dammed, and its water controlled for a time, but eventually, it will force an outlet. The same is true of the emotion of sex. It may be submerged and controlled for a time, but its very nature causes it to be ever seeking means of expression. If it is not transmuted into some creative effort it will find a less worthy outlet.

Fortunate, indeed, is the person who has discovered how to give sex emotion an outlet through some form of creative effort, for he has, by that discovery, lifted himself to the status of a genius.

Scientific research has disclosed these significant facts:

  1. The men of greatest achievement are men with highly developed sex natures; men who have learned the art of sex transmutation.
  2. The men who have accumulated great fortunes and achieved outstanding recognition in literature, art, industry, architecture, and the professions, were motivated by the influence of a woman.

The research from which these astounding discoveries were made, went back through the pages of biography and history for more than two thousand years. Wherever there was evidence available in connection with the lives of men and women of great achievement, it indicated most convincingly that they possessed highly developed sex natures.

The emotion of sex is an “irresistible force,” against which there can be no such opposition as an “immovable body.” When driven by this emotion, men become gifted with a superpower for action. Understand this truth, and you will catch the significance of the statement that sex transmutation will lift one to the status of a genius.

The Power of Applause
by Jim Stovall

 

In addition to my work running a television network, writing books, making movies, and writing weekly columns, several times each month, I get to speak at an arena event, convention center, or corporate meeting somewhere in the world. There are many things I enjoy about public speaking including getting to connect with a live audience, enjoying instant feedback, and getting to meet people as I sign their books or take photographs.

One of the elements of a huge arena event I had never understood before experiencing it myself was the overwhelming power of having thousands of people applaud for you. It causes you to want to be better, try harder, and give more.

Recently I read a story about the famed entertainer Jimmy Durante. At the end of World War II, many top performers were donating their time to entertain troops returning from the battlefields around the world. Durante was scheduled to perform for a group of wounded soldiers at a military hospital, but due to a scheduling conflict, Durante was forced to tell the commanding officer he only had five minutes before he had to catch a train for his next performance.

The commanding officer for the post was determined to make the best of a difficult situation, so he went onto the stage and introduced Jimmy Durante. Durante bounded onto the stage with his infectious energy, told jokes, and played a couple of his quick songs that he had made famous as a Vaudeville performer. At the end of five minutes, he took a bow to thunderous applause.

The commanding officer who was standing behind the curtain was surprised when Durante didn’t leave the stage but launched into another series of jokes and songs. The crowd of wounded soldiers was overwhelmed when Jimmy Durante finally left the stage in complete exhaustion after performing almost two hours.

The audience showed its appreciation by giving Jimmy Durante a thunderous standing ovation. Backstage, the commanding officer asked Durante why he had continued performing and missed his train. Durante smiled and said, “It was the applause that did it.”

Apparently, the commanding officer looked bewildered, so Durante parted the curtain slightly so they both could see the crowd continuing to stand on their feet and applauding Durante’s performance. The commanding officer was still confused until Jimmy Durante pointed out two soldiers on the front row. One of the soldiers had lost his left arm during the war, and the soldier sitting next to him had obviously had his right arm amputated. These two soldiers had apparently discovered that if they sat next to one another and combined their efforts, they could express their appreciation by applauding.

Durante said, “Trains come and go every hour, but an experience like that you get once in a lifetime.”

While they may not be singers, comedians, or performers, the people in our lives need applause. Whether it’s your friend, a family member, or a coworker, catch them doing something well, and let them know how much you appreciate it.

As you go through your day today, remember the power of applause works whether you’re giving it or receiving it.

Today’s the day!
Jim Stovall

Think and Grow Rich

 

Master-Key to Riches

NEW!
Truthful Living

by Napoleon Hill Foreword, Actions and Annotations by Jeffrey Gitomer

 

New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Gitomer brings you the very foundation of Napoleon Hill’s self-help legacy: his long-lost original notes, letters, and lectures—now compiled, edited, and annotated for the modern reader.

Twenty years before the publication of his magnum opus Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill was an instructor, philosopher, and writer at the George Washington Institute in Chicago, where he taught courses in advertising and sales. These rare, never-before-seen lectures were thought to be lost to history. Until now.

Given exclusive access to the archives of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, Jeffrey Gitomer has unearthed Hill’s original course notes containing the fundamental beliefs in hard work and personal development that established Hill as a global leader of success and positive attitude.

In Truthful Living, Gitomer has captured Hill’s foundational wisdom for the twenty-first century. These easy-to-implement real-world strategies for life, family, business, and the bottom line prove as energizing and inspiring today as they were nearly one hundred years ago.
