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

Dear Readers,

Fear takes away your strength and breeds inaction, which means that even if you have ideas and plans, you will not take the necessary steps to accomplish your goals.

The little things we know that we use to allow fear to set in simply do not stand up when the information is analyzed. Many different studies show that about 60 to 70 percent of the things we fear never happen. Thus, our fears are mostly without basis.

These studies regarding fear report that about 5 percent of all fears have a valid basis and thus are justified. This means that the other 95 percent of fears involve either things from the past over which we have no control or unimportant items that are of little concern and will make very little difference.

If 5 percent of our fears are things that we should not ignore, we should still work on achieving our goals.

Goals give us energy, and while we do not always respond to reason, taking action will help us eliminate the fears that we have developed. Staying focused on your goal will keep you positive, and while the mind is complicated, it cannot hold negative and positive thoughts at the same time.

It also is important for you to focus on those items that you can control and learn to ignore what you cannot control.

 

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

The Law of Success

HOW TO OUTWIT THE SIX GHOSTS OF FEAR

by Napoleon Hill

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

BEFORE you can put any portion of this philosophy into successful use, your mind must be prepared to receive it. The preparation is not difficult. It begins with study, analysis, and understanding of three enemies which you shall have to clear out. These are INDECISION, DOUBT, and FEAR!

The Sixth Sense will never function while these three negatives, or any of them remain in your mind. The members of this unholy trio are closely related; where one is found, the other two are close at hand.

INDECISION is the seedling of FEAR! Remember this, as you read. Indecision crystallizes into DOUBT, the two blend and become FEAR! The “blending” process often is slow. This is one reason why these three enemies are so dangerous. They germinate and grow without their presence being observed.

The remainder of this chapter describes an end which must be attained before the philosophy, as a whole, can be put into practical use. It also analyzes a condition which has, but lately, reduced huge numbers of people to poverty, and it states a truth which must be understood by all who accumulate riches, whether measured in terms of money or a state of mind of far greater value than money.

The purpose of this chapter is to turn the spotlight of attention upon the cause and the cure of the six basic fears. Before we can master an enemy, we must know its name, its habits, and its place of abode. As you read, analyze yourself carefully, and determine which, if any, of the six common fears have attached themselves to you.

Do not be deceived by the habits of these subtle enemies. Sometimes they remain hidden in the subconscious mind, where they are difficult to locate, and still more difficult to eliminate.

THE SIX BASIC FEARS

There are six basic fears, with some combination of which every human suffers at one time or another. Most people are fortunate if they do not suffer from the entire six. Named in the order of their most common appearance, they are:—

All other fears are of minor importance, they can be grouped under these six headings.

The prevalence of these fears, as a curse to the world, runs in cycles. For almost six years, while the depression was on, we floundered in the cycle of FEAR OF POVERTY. During the world-war, we were in the cycle of FEAR OF DEATH. Just following the war, we were in the cycle of FEAR OF ILL HEALTH, as evidenced by the epidemic of disease which spread itself all over the world.

Fears are nothing more than states of mind. One’s state of mind is subject to control and direction. Physicians, as everyone knows, are less subject to attack by disease than ordinary laymen, for the reason that physicians DO NOT FEAR DISEASE. Physicians, without fear or hesitation, have been known to physically contact hundreds of people, daily, who were suffering from such contagious diseases as small-pox, without becoming infected. Their immunity against the disease consisted, largely, if not solely, in their absolute lack of FEAR.

Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in the form of an impulse of thought.

Following the statement, comes another of still greater importance, namely, MAN’S THOUGHT IMPULSES BEGIN IMMEDIATELY TO TRANSLATE THEMSELVES INTO THEIR PHYSICAL EQUIVALENT, WHETHER THOSE THOUGHTS ARE VOLUNTARY OR INVOLUNTARY. Thought impulses which are picked up through the ether, by mere chance (thoughts which have been released by other minds) may determine one’s financial, business, professional, or social destiny just as surely as do the thought impulses which one creates by intent and design.

We are here laying the foundation for the presentation of a fact of great importance to the person who does not understand why some people appear to be “lucky” while others of equal or greater ability, training, experience, and brain capacity, seem destined to ride with misfortune. This fact may be explained by the statement that every human being has the ability to completely control his own mind, and with this control, obviously, every person may open his mind to the tramp thought impulses which are being released by other brains, or close the doors tightly and admit only thought impulses of his own choice.

Nature has endowed man with absolute control over but one thing, and that is THOUGHT. This fact, coupled with the additional fact that everything which man creates, begins in the form of a thought, leads one very near to the principle by which FEAR may be mastered.

If it is true that ALL THOUGHT HAS A TENDENCY TO CLOTHE ITSELF IN ITS PHYSICAL EQUIVALENT (and this is true, beyond any reasonable room for doubt), it is equally true that thought impulses of fear and poverty cannot be translated into terms of courage and financial gain.

The people of America began to think of poverty, following the Wall Street crash of 1929. Slowly, but surely that mass thought was crystallized into its physical equivalent, which was known as a “depression.” This had to happen, it is in conformity with the laws of Nature.

Beyond the Barrier
by Jim Stovall

 

All of us have fears that we face. These fears cause us to do certain things and cause us not to do other things. Fear is a very natural and normal response in most cases. However, from time to time it is important to ask ourselves, “Are my current fears well-founded concerns that are keeping me out of trouble or are they irrational thoughts that are keeping me from where I should be?”

Many people in our society have a fear of flying. Their fears range from an uneasy feeling just before takeoff to stark terror that keeps them from even going near an airport. A certain degree of fear with respect to flying is good. If you are going to take a very large metal contraption that weighs many tons and fill it with people and then thrust it into the air, a proper degree of concern, caution, and prior planning is important. On the other hand, if someone is missing all of the many benefits that modern air travel can afford because of an irrational, unfounded fear, it may be worth looking into.

I will admit to having a certain degree of fear as it relates to skydiving. I feel I have resolved this in my life as I have absolutely no desire to jump out of an airplane with nothing between me and death but a piece of fabric. Since I have no real need or desire to skydive, the fear I have really does not affect me in any significant way. On the other hand, if I had a fear of meeting new people or going new places, it would be something I would have to deal with in order to pursue my passion and my destiny.

In the final analysis, the determining factor must be our own goals and pursuits. If the barriers we have allowed to build up in our minds are keeping us from pursuing the best that life has to offer, it’s time to make an adjustment. Remember when you were young and you were afraid to dive off the diving board, ride a bicycle, or go to school by yourself? These were very real fears at that time in your life, but if you had given in to them, think of all that you would have missed. If the fear is keeping you from your destiny, remember that greatness lies just beyond the barrier.

Today’s the day!
