THOUGHTS ARE THINGS AND POWERFUL THINGS, AT THAT.

 

"There is a difference between WISHING for a thing and being READY to

receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it.

The state of mind must be BELIEF, not mere hope or wish. Open- mindedness

is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief.

 

"You may as well know, right here, that you can never have riches in great

quantities, UNLESS you can work yourself into a white heat of DESIRE for

money, and actually BELIEVE you will possess it.

 

"A BURNING DESIRE TO BE, AND TO DO is the starting point from which

the dreamer must take off. Dreams are not born of indifference, laziness,

or lack of ambition.

 

"[Barnes] BURNED ALL BRIDGES BEHIND HIM. He stood by his DESIRE

until it became the dominating obsession of his life—and—finally, a fact."

 

- Napolean Hill

 

When Hill was talking about the challenges of teaching his deaf son, who had no

ears, to talk, he said, “DESIRE backed by FAITH, pushed reason aside, and

inspired me to carry on.”

 

The key to understanding this chapter and every other chapter in this book is the

first sentence in this post.  “THOUGHTS ARE THINGS AND POWERFUL THINGS

AT THAT.”  The power comes in the effect the thoughts have on the subconscious

mind.  They can have a positive effect or a negative effect.  Which one is up to us. 

We control what gets into the subconscious mind through the conscious mind.

 

I AM the GATEKEEPER of my Subconscious Mind.  It is My Responsibility and Mine Alone.
