Chapter  9,                                                                   
From The Book,
Think And Grow Rich! 
The Greatest Forces Are Intangible! 


There are four simple steps which lead to the habit of Persistence .  
No particular amount of education, and but little time or Effort. 
The necessary steps are.

1 A definite purpose backed by burning desire for Its fulfillment.
2 A definite plan, expressed in continuous action.
3 A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging Influences, including  
 negative suggestions of relatives, friends
And acquaintances.
4 A friendly alliance with one or more persons who will Encourage one to follow 
through with both plan and purpose.  (Napoleon Hill) 

When I was growing up, I can remember 
the big Desire to learn how to ride a bicycle,
it did not become a strong Desire until I 
noticed all my friends were riding bicycles.
The Definite plan was to get on it and ride it
over and over again, until you can stay 
upright with out falling. 
I went roller skating for the first time when I
was eight years old, before going it did not 
sound like fun to me, I was not planning on 
roller skating, I was going to watch 
everybody else. After a short period of time
watching my friends fall down get back up 
laughing,  a strong Desire came over me, I 
have to get out there, I want to have fun 
My strong Desire now, Learn how to Think 
not what to think! Napoleon Hill talks about
your other self, I have a strong Desire to get 
to know my other self, my intangible
positive self. When we have a strong Desire 
the word quit will not show up. 
Remember, habits have to change!
We have to take action and let it happen
you can not make it happen within a week 
or two.
