The Power of Thought is the name of chapter 1 in Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Now, I have been a serious fan of the author and book for several years. I have likely read all of the book, just not start to finish. Well, that’s about to change.
Not sure what happened to my copy of the book over the years, possibly given away or borrowed and not returned, but I visited our local libray and checked out a copy this week. It is powerful right from the start. Now, I have an electronic copy on my tablet, but I just wanted to hold the book…to connect with the printed words.
We hear the phrases about the power of thoughts and that “thoughts are things” on a regular basis, or at least I do. Many of us have even seen the movie “The Secret” so we know about the Law of Attraction.
Well, in the first sentence of the first paragraph, Napoleon Hill takes the power of thought all the way through the process. Here’s the passage, “Truly, “thoughts are things,” and powerful things at that, when mixed with purpose, persistence and a burning desire for their translation into riches or other material objects.”
Did you catch that there is a process or a recipe for the thoughts becoming things?
- One Thought
- Mixed with Purpose
- Combined with Persistence
- Topped off with a burning desire
When you have all 4 parts of the recipe, you can cook up what ever your heart desires. Do you believe that?
The book goes on to talk about the “burning desire” ingredient. It has to be definite. It has to be a “no matter what” desire. In other words, it cannot be left out, lessened, or a substitute used. If so, you will not get the desired result.
Think and Grow Rich is a must have for your personal library. Once you apply the principles, or laws in the book, you will transform into a much better you. Stronger, focused, in alignment from top to bottom and inside out.
