Napoleon Hill Think and Grow Rich!
Chapter 12: The Twelfth Step Toward Wealth: Wisdom
In every corner of your awareness
can open up new magical possibilities for you.
Use your ability to think quickly,
clearly and effectively.
The richest people in the world build networks.
Everyone else is trained
to look for work. — Robert Kiyosaki
“Remember, to create wealth,
you can’t just score once,
you must be able to repeat it.”– Grant Cardone
TWENTY STEP TO WEALTH: INTELLIGENCE
More than forty years ago,
while also working with Dr. Alexander Grem Bell,
and Dr. Elmer R.Gace,
the author of this book came
to the conclusion that the human brain is a device.
both to receive
and to transmit thoughts at the same time.
Like radio, the human brain is capable
of receiving thought vibrations transmitted by other brains.
Recall the work of the creative imagination
(see the chapter Imagination)
and compare it with the above.
Is the creative imagination a kind of cognitive device,
the destination of thought impulses sent by others?
At the same time,
it ties the analytical mind
to four sources of intellectual stimulation.
When stimulated and agitated to a high degree,
the mind becomes receptive
to thoughts coming from outside sources.
This hypervigilance takes place through positive
or negative emotions
– because emotions increase thought agitation.
In terms of intensity and force of impact,
sexual emotions top the list of human sensations.
The mind stimulated
by sexual emotion works much more effectively
than when the feeling is dormant
or generally absent.
When transforming sexual feelings,
the thought process is noticeably stronger,
making the creative imagination more receptive.
On the other hand,
a well-functioning brain not only attracts the thoughts of others,
but also knows how to put oneself in the state necessary
for the subconscious mind to receive those thoughts.
Well, the subconscious mind
– it’s the brain’s transmitting device,
and the creative imagination
– is the receiving device.
On the basis of a new understanding of the workings
of the subconscious mind and creative imagination,
think about the role of autosuggestion
– the operator of your entire switchboard.
In the chapter on Autosuggestion,
you became acquainted with the method
of converting desires
into monetary equivalents.
Thus, controlling your switchboard is not the most complicated procedure.
It is based on three pillars:
How to get all three to work
– well explained in the respective chapters.
But you have to remember,
it all starts with desire!
The aim of the rich is to really accumulate a great wealth,
to be truly affluent.
Not just a little bit of money, but a lot of money.
When money realizes that it is in good hands,
it wants to stay and multiply in those hands. ― Idowu Koyenikan
Successful investing takes time,
No matter how great the talent or effort,
some things just take time:
You can’t produce a baby in one month
by getting nine women pregnant. — Warren Buffett
STILL IN THE POWER OF INVISIBLE STRENGTH
For centuries, man was too dependent on his material sensations
and limited his knowledge to the physical world,
where everything had to be seen,
and measured countable.
We are now entering a magical era
with the ability to perceive the invisible forces of the world around us.
Living through this era,
have we come to admit that the other self is much stronger
than the physical self that we see in the mirror?
It is not uncommon to touch invisible forces,
not received by the five senses,
that people appear to be very superficial.
You must remember that we are all
under the control of unseen forces.
All humanity is powerless in the will to interact
with the invisible force embodied in the ocean waves.
Humans are not able to understand the universal gravitation that keeps
the tiny Earth hanging in space
and keeps people from falling off it;
That person is even more incapable of controlling this force.
Humans are completely powerless against the power of earthquakes,
just as they are powerless against the power of electric currents.
So it is too early to say that our era
of ignorance about nature is over.
Because we don’t even understand the power that lies in the earth,
the power that gives us bread,
Rich people believe:
“I create my life”.
The poor believe:
“Life is full of unexpected things that happen to me.”
“I discovered that wealth is a kind of perception
and that anyone can perceive it
by thinking like a rich person.”– Andrew Young
Being an entrepreneur is simply going from one mistake to the next.
You must have the fortitude to continue on. — Robert Kiyosaki
All of us, with our culture and upbringing,
understand nothing (or very little) of the greatest invisible force
– the power of thought.
We have so little knowledge of the brain,
of the subtlest mechanisms of its workings,
through which the power of thought takes its physical form.
But there is also hope that we live in a century
that will be able to answer this question.
Scientists have finally begun to study the brain,
and although it can be said that the science
of the human brain is still in its infancy,
we already know the number of folds that connect the cells.
The brain cell (central to understanding how the human brain works)
is a number with fifteen million zeros.
Oh the number is so big that .
– said Dr. K.Jadson Herric of the University of Chicago,
– compared with it,
the number of millions of light years also becomes small.
It has been established that in the human cerebral cortex
there are between ten
and fourteen billion neurons distributed in groups.
And the distribution is not messy.
The electrophysiological method has recently allowed the recording
The electric current moves
between the cells by means of a micro-electrode
and the potential energy difference is measured
at one millionth of a volt.
It is hard to believe that such a delicate
and complex system must exist
for the sole purpose of maintaining the physical functions necessary
for the growth
and survival of the organism.
Isn’t it surprising to know that the same system,
which has given billions of brain cells the ability
to communicate with each other,
will expose them to other invisible forces?
The New York Times has published an article on the study of cognitive phenomena,
the conclusion of which is similar
to what you are reading in this
and later chapters.
We will quote here a brief analysis of the work of Dr. Right
and his colleagues at Duke University.
If you want to create prosperity,
it is important that you believe
that you are the driver of your life,
especially your financial life.
They are masters at directing their energies to the right place:
Where the money is? They use money to create a fortune.
Rich people think that to make a lot of money,
it must be considered a breakthrough process.
They are masters at monetizing ideas.
They realize that the ideas are endless, so the money is endless. ― Steve Siebold
Never assume you understand. Ask the questions. — Brian Tracy
WHAT IS TELEPHONEY?
A month ago we published the amazing results of Professor Right
and his colleagues
when they carried out more
than one hundred thousand tests aimed
at clarifying the existence of telepathy
and clairvoyance really guess.
Research results are summarized in two articles published
in the journal Harper’s Magazine.
In the second article,
Mr. Right, attempts to draw preliminary (or nearly so) conclusions
about the nature of sensitive forms of perception.
The results of Dr. Right’s experiments showed many other scientists
that it is very possible to have telepathy
The task for some sensory people is to guess,
as many as possible,
the cards without resorting to the five senses.
Pick up a group that regularly guesses right, oh,
and can’t say they were lucky or coincidental.
But how do they do it?
The power they wield (if such power is assumed)
is not the same as sensations;
or at least no such sensory organs exist.
at a distance of several hundred nautical miles
or in the room,
the results were the same.
In Mr. Right’s opinion,
these facts negate the telepathic
and prescientific explanations based on physical theory.
It is not possible to use any known radiant energy
to transmit thoughts through space
– this is unanimously agreed.
Telepathic and predictive powers are possible.
In this process,
as with other intellectual abilities of man,
and predictive powers are directly
dependent on the state of his body.
But, contrary to popular opinion,
telepathic and predictive powers increase not
when the person is asleep
or half awake,
but when he is refreshed
Professor Right found that drugs decrease,
and stimulants always increase experimental results.
Interestingly, the participants
with the best results also couldn’t get the maximum score
if they didn’t try their best.
Dr. Right comes to a conclusion
with a strong conviction:
telepathy and prediction are essentially the same phenomenon.
It is the power to see through the cards,
to read through the thoughts born in the perception of others.
This can be proven.
The example has the following reality:
when each person has one of the two possibilities,
there is also the other,
and both of these abilities manifest
with the same intensity.
The screen, the wall,
the distance are all unimpeded
for both telepathy and divination.
Professor Right goes even further in his conclusions:
other psychic phenomena
– the ability to prophesy,
– are also manifestations of this gift.
We are not asking you to believe any of Mr. Right’s conclusions
until you feel able to believe them yourself.
But, in any case,
you have to agree that the evidence he gives is very impressive.
If you were to say that your husband or wife,
or your friends are not important to you,
would any of those people survive?
long term with you?
I don’t believe it is,
and neither is it with money!
Before you can become a millionaire,
you must learn to think like one. ― Thomas J. Stanleyt
Remember, your mind is your greatest asset,
so be careful what you put into it. — Robert Kiyosaki
INTELLIGENT CHORUS OF INTELLIGENCE
In the context of Dr. Right’s research on what he calls a form
of suburban reception,
I would like to take on the comfortable role
– asserting his evidence
with my and my colleagues’ inventions in my career.
We discovered the so-called ideal conditions
for perception to work for the sixth sense
(the sixth sense will be described in the next chapter).
I will talk about my close working cooperation with my colleagues.
and by practice we have discovered
how to stimulate awareness,
how to combine the three intelligences into one,
to quickly solve the pile of problems
that our clients bring to us.
(We also include invisible consulting boxes to solve the problem).
The procedure is very simple.
We sat down at the meeting table,
defined the problem to be solved,
and started the discussion,
where each person could voice whatever he wanted.
The strange thing about this method of cognitive stimulation is
that each member is connected
to sources of knowledge
that are unknown and outside the scope of his own experience.
If you have understood the working principle in center
It is easy to see that the procedure described here is nothing else
but the actual application of that principle.
The method of cognitive stimulation
by discussing completely specific problems in three people
– it is the simplest and most practical illustration
of the use of the principle of the Brain Center.
By the same process,
anyone who supports our philosophy can grasp the Carneghi formula presented
in the introductory chapter.
If this doesn’t make sense to you right now,
just bookmark it:
when you’re done with the book,
read it again!
So I want to stress to you again
that money is extremely important
in the areas where it works,
The only difference between a rich person
and a poor person is how they use their time. ― Robert Kiyosaki
In order to become rich,
you must believe you can do it,
and you must take the actions necessary to achieve your goal. ― Suze Orman
THOUGHTS NEED TO BE RECORDED
From now on three simple principles will guide your mind and life.
Invisible power at your service.
The invisible power has an influence
that most people are not aware of.
From now on,
brain science inventions are your tools for self-improvement.
You know the main secret
– the secret of the round table.
Ten billion tiny employees
– brain cells
– take turns forming ways of thinking,
imagination, and will.
Ten billion particles of knowledge
about how to make money.
The voice you believe will determine the future you experience. ― Steven Furtick
MANY PEOPLE LIKE RICH.
BUT NOT ALL KNOW THE DESIRE OF PASSION
AND THINKING ACTION TO ACHIEVE IT.
