And so we come to the end of this little journey, let us review it and see what we have learned.
The following are the three themes in the book that most resonate with me:
The Power of Thought
The Power of the Subconscious
The Power of Purpose
Napoleon Hill's 13 Steps to Riches
Desire: The Turning Point of All Achievement.
Faith: Visualizing and Believing in the Attainment of Desire
Auto-Suggestion: The Medium for Influencing the Subconscious Mind
Specialized Knowledge: Personal Experiences or Observations
Imagination: The Workshop of the Mind
Organized Planning: The Crystallization of Desire into Action
Decision: The Mastery of Procrastination
Persistence: The Sustained Effort Necessary to Induce Faith.
Power of the Master Mind: The Driving Force
The Mystery of Sex Transmutation.
The Subconscious Mind: The Connecting Link.
The Brain: A Broadcasting and Receiving Station for Thought.
The Sixth Sense: The Door to the Temple of Wisdom
Hill’s full approach to financial success can be summarised in 10 steps:
Decide on a definite purpose. Write down exactly how much money you want, by when. Make it clear, specific and tangible.
Embed it in your subconscious. Visualise this goal twice daily as if it were already a reality.
Fan the flames of a burning desire to acquire it. Have faith.
Develop self-confidence, eliminate fear and trust in your ability to get what you want by applying the principles above.
Make a plan. Write a plan of action, get started right away (whether you feel ready or not) and develop your plan over time.
Learn what you need. Identify the specific knowledge you need to make your plan a success.
Learn it yourself or surround yourself with people who have it.
Put together a Master Mind group of like-minded people to sympathise, cooperate and share knowledge with.
Get help from others.
Meet with your Master Mind group often and maintain perfect harmony within it.
Set your subconscious up for success.
Step back, listen, support and guard your subconscious as it works.
So where do we go in our learning journey from here: I suggest we now look for guidance to one of the finest exponents of Mr. Hill's teachings and that is Bob Proctor. Let us now look to his writings and videos and courses as we continue this search. I have added some more to the Resources page as a starting point.
