 The theme for chapter XI , THE MYSTERY OF SEX  TRANSMUTATION is that people who are high achievers,  are successful and are endowed with high level sexual energy and this energy can be channelled and transmuted to aid one achieve ones goals. The key word is TRANSMUTATION. How do you do this? To quote Napoleon Hill," Sex transmutation means  switching of the mind from thoughts of physical expression, to thoughts of some  other nature since sex is the most powerful of human desires and when harnessed and redirected along other  lines, this motivating force maintains all of its attributes of keeness 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,"and   "There are other mind stimulants, but not one of them can equal the driving power of sex". The sexual urge must be channelled and focused to give the necessary energy  for goal attainment. Some examples from past history that Napoleon Hill would have considered recipients of this transmutation would be Michael Angelo,  Leonardo Da Vinci,  Antonio Vivaldi,  Wolfgang  Amadeus Mozart,  Johann Sebastian Bach,  Samuel Taylor Coleridge, to name a few.
