Hill tells us that “Love, Romance, and Sex are all emotions capable of driving men to heights of super achievement. Love is the emotion which serves as a safety valve, and insures balance, poise, and constructive effort. When combined, these three emotions may lift one to an altitude of a genius.

The road to genius consists of the development, control, and use of sex, love, and romance. Briefly, the process may be stated as follows:

Encourage the presence of these emotions as the dominating thoughts in one’s mind, and discourage the presence of all the destructive emotions. The mind is a creature of habit. It thrives upon the dominating thoughts fed it. Through the faculty of willpower, one may discourage the presence of any emotion, and encourage the presence of any other. Control of the mind, through the power of will, is not difficult. Control comes from persistence, and habit. The secret of control lies in understanding the process of transmutation. When any negative emotion presents itself in one’s mind, it can be transmuted into a positive, or constructive emotion, by the simple procedure of changing one’s thoughts.” 

And that is really all there is in sex transmutation, harnessing the power of pure, uncontrolled sex by changing one’s thoughts from sex alone into something constructive. I found that one love as described in the preceding paragraph and that love for my wife helped me transfer a lot more love towards others. And Michael always says that once you have had any kind of love experience in your life you can always go back and draw from it!

I think that when you get to that point is when you can start developing that creativity that allows you to rise up above the clouds like the example of the airplane. When I am outside all I see is people walking by, the shops across the street and the things going on immediately in front of me. I can go in the back yard though and send my drone up about 3 to 400 feet and see the town below me, the bay, the sunset setting over the bay that I couldn’t see without walking all the way to the water. That helps me to be able to better relate to what Hill is telling me. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for providing this platform to grow weekly and would be lost without if I ever had to go back to just studying personal development on my own. And thanks to all my mastermind friends and partners for sharing your thoughts with me weekly.
