The Second Step toward Riches

Napoleon Hill begins this chapter by saying,

"FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer."

So, how do we develop FAITH?

In Chapter 2, Step 1, Hill gives the six steps that are required to develop a BURNING DESIRE. He has given us examples in Chapter 1 and 2 of Edwin C. Barnes and how he developed a BURNING DESIRE through PERSISTENCE. In Chapter 4, Step 3, AUTOSUGGESTION, we call it self-talk, we can convenience our subconscious mind by developing FAITH and having a definite plan to accomplish that DESIRE.

Napoleon Hill had interviewed 500 of the richest men of his time. He found all of them had one thing in common. They all belonged to a harmonious Mastermind Group. That is exactly what we have here in Mentoring For Free. Hill goes on to say, anytime two or more people come together in harmony, they too create a Mastermind Group. He also says, reading the book by oneself is not sufficient to form a Mastermind Group. It must be two or more people in harmony.

Another excellent example of a harmonious Mastermind Group is Napoleon Hill's story of what Charles M. Schwab did. He completed the six steps like Hill gives in Chapter 2. He developed FAITH and found a harmonious Mastermind Group. Schwab, being an unpolished person in the eyes of the very successful people like J.P. Morgan was expected to speak for just a few minutes. For ninety minutes, Schwab had these very successful people listening intently.  And after the event, he and Morgan talked for another hour.

Schwab had the vast Carnegie fortunate come together with J.P. Morgan. After 30 Years, in 1930, Schwab got his wish. He was made president of the new corporation, U.S. Steel.

The answer to many millions of people over the last 80+ years is in this U.S. Steel story.

The answer to Linda and Michael's success is in this story of U.S. Steel.

The answer to each one of our success is in this story of U.S. Steel and Linda and Michael's implementation of Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich book.

I am GRATEFUL to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their persistence of several decades to implement a plan that created Mentoring For Free where anyone can come and learn the techniques millions have used throughout the decades to get the results they DESIRE. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy for that persistence.

I am GRATEFUL to each member of the 8 weekly calls that create a harmonious Mastermind Group per Hill's recommendation. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You. You are appreciated.
