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

Dear Readers,

IF YOU WISH to be successful, here are the steps that will help you get there. You can read scores of books on the subject, or you can follow these simple steps and take action.

If you are to improve your station in life, positive change must take place. Here are five things you need to do:

  1. Have a desire to improve. You can refer to this as your ultimate goal, your mission, your purpose, or something else, but it must be a burning obsession or passion. It must be so strong that you live it, eat it, go to bed with it, and are consumed by the need to “see” it materialize.
  2. Belief is a state of mind that lets you be confident that your purpose will come alive. This can be achieved by often-repeated affirmations that make it a part of your subconscious. You should have notes or signs placed where you can see them daily as constant reminders of your purpose.
  3. You generate actions based on the belief that you can accomplish your purpose in life. Action leads to practice. Perfect practice makes for perfection.
  4. Feedback is what you get as a result of taking action. If the feedback is negative, such as falling when you are learning to ski, then you should accept it as a lesson, not a failure. The fall just means that you need more practice, maybe with the help of a professional instructor.
  5. Repetition means doing the action over and over until the right results become a habit.

Of course there will be temporary setbacks, but remember that if a child who is learning to walk quit as soon as most adults do, the child would never learn to walk. I learned that either I could follow these steps taken by other successful people to get what I wanted, or I would have to make excuses for why I did not. It all sounds simple, and in fact, it is easy, but delaying these steps is also easy.

In this week’s excerpt from Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill reminds us of the importance of the subconscious mind. If you do not fill it with your own plans and desires it will certainly be filled with someone else’s plans and desires, for the subconscious mind is never idle. So I encourage you to fill your own mind with your own plans and desires for success and prosperity. We are still taking registrations for our Summer Distance Learning Course, this is a good place to fill your mind with belief in your own desires with the inspiration of Napoleon Hill’s Seventeen Principles of Success!

 

I wish you the best,
Don Green
Executive Director Napoleon Hill Foundation

The Law of Success

THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
THE CONNECTING LINK
The Eleventh Step toward Riches
by Napoleon Hill

This is the eighth in a series of excerpts from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich.

THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND consists of a field of consciousness, in which every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind through any of the five senses, is classified and recorded, and from which thoughts may be recalled or withdrawn as letters may be taken from a filing cabinet.

It receives, and files, sense impressions or thoughts, regardless of their nature. You may VOLUNTARILY plant in your subconscious mind any plan, thought, or purpose which you desire to translate into its physical or monetary equivalent. The subconscious acts first on the dominating desires which have been mixed with emotional feeling, such as faith.

Consider this in connection with the instructions given in the chapter on DESIRE, for taking the six steps there outlined, and the instructions given in the chapter on the building and executive of plans, and you will understand the importance of the thought conveyed.

THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND WORKS DAY AND NIGHT. Through a method of procedure, unknown to man, the subconscious mind draws upon the forces of Infinite Intelligence for the power with which it voluntarily transmutes one’s desires into their physical equivalent, making use, always of the most practical media by which this end may be accomplished.

You cannot entirely control your subconscious mind, but you can voluntarily hand over to it any plan, desire, or purpose which you wish transformed into concrete form. Read, again, instructions for using the subconscious mind, in the chapter on auto-suggestion.

There is plenty of evidence to support the belief that the subconscious mind is the connecting link between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence. It is the intermediary through which one may draw upon the forces of Infinite Intelligence at will. It, alone, contains the secret process by which mental impulses are modified and changed into their spiritual equivalent. It, alone, is the medium through which prayer may be transmitted to the source capable of answering prayer.

The possibilities of creative effort connected with the subconscious mind are stupendous and imponderable. They inspire one with awe.

I never approach the discussion of the subconscious mind without a feeling of littleness and inferiority due, perhaps, to the fact that man’s entire stock of knowledge on this subject is so pitifully limited. The very fact that the subconscious mind is the medium of communication between the thinking mind of man and Infinite Intelligence is, of itself, a thought which almost paralyzes one’s reason.

After you have accepted, as a reality, the existence of the subconscious mind, and understand its possibilities, as a medium for transmuting your DESIRES into their physical or monetary equivalent, you will comprehend the full significance of the instructions given in the chapter on DESIRE. You will also understand why you have been repeatedly admonished to MAKE YOUR DESIRES CLEAR, AND TO REDUCE THEM TO WRITING. You will also understand the necessity of PERSISTENCE in carrying out instructions.

The thirteen principles are the stimuli with which you acquire the ability to reach, and to influence your subconscious mind. Do not become discouraged, if you cannot do this upon the first attempt. Remember that the subconscious mind may be voluntarily directed only through habit, under the directions given in the chapter on FAITH. You have not yet had time to master faith. Be patient. Be persistent.

A good many statements in the chapters on faith and auto-suggestion will be repeated here, for the benefit of YOUR subconscious mind. Remember, your subconscious mind functions voluntarily, whether you make any effort to influence it or not. This, naturally, suggests to you that thoughts of fear and poverty, and all negative thoughts serve as stimuli to your subconscious mind, unless, you master these impulses and give it more desirable food upon which it may feed.

The subconscious mind will not remain idle! If you fail to plant DESIRES in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thoughts which reach it as the result of your neglect. We have already explained that thought impulses, both negative and positive are reaching the subconscious mind continuously, from the four sources which were mentioned in the chapter on Sex Transmutation.

. . .

Everything which man creates, BEGINS in the form of a thought impulse. Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in THOUGHT. Through the aid of the imagination, thought impulses may be assembled into plans. The imagination, when under control, may be used for the creation of plans of purposes that lead to success in one’s chosen occupation.

All thought impulses, intended for transmutation into their physical equivalent, voluntarily planted in the subconscious mind, must pass through the imagination, and be mixed with faith. The “mixing” of faith with a plan, or purpose, intended for submission to the subconscious mind, may be done ONLY through the imagination.

From these statements, you will readily observe that voluntary use of the subconscious mind calls for coordination and application of all the principles.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox gave evidence of her under-standing of the power of the subconscious mind when she wrote:

“You never can tell what a thought will do
In bringing you hate or love—
For thoughts are things, and their airy wings
Are swifter than carrier doves.
They follow the law of the universe—
Each thing creates its kind,
And they speed O’er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind.”

Mrs. Wilcox understood the truth, that thoughts which go out from one’s mind, also imbed themselves deeply in one’s subconscious mind, where they serve as a magnet, pattern, or blueprint by which the subconscious mind is influenced while translating them into their physical equivalent. Thoughts are truly things, for the reason that every material thing begins in the form of thought-energy.

The subconscious mind is more susceptible to influence by impulses of thought mixed with “feeling” or emotion, than by those originating solely in the reasoning portion of the mind. In fact, there is much evidence to support the theory, that ONLY emotionalized thoughts have any ACTION influence upon the subconscious mind. It is a well-known fact that emotion or feeling, rules the majority of people. If it is true that the subconscious mind responds more quickly to, and is influenced more readily by thought impulses which are well mixed with emotion, it is essential to become familiar with the more important of the emotions. There are seven major positive emotions, and seven major negative emotions. The negatives voluntarily inject themselves into the thought impulses, which insure passage into the subconscious mind. The positives must be injected, through the principle of auto-suggestion, into the thought impulses which an individual wishes to pass on to his subconscious mind.

These emotions, or feeling impulses, may be likened to yeast in a loaf of bread, because they constitute the ACTION element, which transforms thought impulses from the passive to the active state. Thus may one understand why thought impulses, which have been well mixed with emotion, are acted upon more readily than thought impulses originating in “cold reason.”

You are preparing yourself to influence and control the “inner audience” of your subconscious mind, in order to hand over to it the DESIRE for money, which you wish transmuted into its monetary equivalent. It is essential, therefore, that you understand the method of approach to this “inner audience.” You must speak its language, or it will not heed your call. It understands best the language of emotion or feeling. Let us, therefore describe here the seven major positive emotions, and the seven major negative emotions, so that you may draw upon the positives, and avoid the negatives when giving instructions to your subconscious mind.

WISDOM FOR WINNERS
by Jim Stovall

 

We live in a world in which we are constantly bombarded by countless images and messages on a daily basis designed to get us to act in certain ways, buy certain products and think certain thoughts in order to benefit others; it is, therefore, imperative that we control our own thoughts and actions through the input of positive messages designed to move us toward our own success.

I am proud, pleased, and humbled to be associated with Napoleon Hill in Wisdom for Winners and Wisdom for Winners Volumes 2 and 3, which offer readers small, bite-sized messages for almost 20 years, i have been Privileged to write columns each week and have them read by countless people around the world in newspapers, magazines, and online publications. On one previous occasion, a compilation of these columns was gathered together in a book that was well-received and continues to find success in the marketplace.

I was excited when Don Green, the head of The Napoleon Hill Foundation, contacted me to do a compilation book entitled Wisdom for Winners. Mr. Green wrote the Foreword to the book and divided a number of my columns into individual sections encompassing areas of personal and professional life that can be read in a few minutes each morning or at a point during the day when a specific message is called for. Many Fortune 500 executives have read the same books, but the title most cited by these elite performers was Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich.

As a young man, Napoleon Hill approached Andrew Carnegie, the first billionaire, and asked about the key to success. Instead of giving some routine or flippant answer, Carnegie agreed to sponsor Napoleon Hill on a quest to find the keys to achievement and launch the science of success. Carnegie introduced young Napoleon Hill to Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and dozens of the business leaders of the day. This collective wisdom emerged in Hill’s 1937 classic book Think and Grow Rich.

Many of the people Napoleon Hill interviewed found their success in the 19th century, Hill compiled and wrote about it in the 20th century, and this timeless wisdom is available to you and me in the 21st century.

Now it is very exciting for me to have a group of these weekly columns compiled into three volumes entitled Wisdom for Winners released under The Napoleon Hill banner with Forewords by my friend and the head of The Napoleon Hill Foundation, Don Green.

I hope you are enjoying this third book as a way to launch or reenergize your own quest for success.

As you go through your day today, remember, you become what you think about, so commit to applying Wisdom for Winners in your own life.

Today’s the day!
