Towards Success

All Achievements, All Earned Riches, Have Their Beginning In An Idea ~ NAPOLEAN HILL

Generally speaking, an idea is an impulse of thought that impels action, by an appeal to the imagination. This magic formula should be taught in all schools and colleges and if properly and sincerely taught it will revolutionalize the entire educational system and can make fortunes by earning a living, to accumulate riches and to find hope, courage, contentment and peace of mind. In fact, this is the needed stimulus to make a start.

Truly, thoughts are powerful things which when mixed with definiteness and a burning desire translates into riches. If a man really desires a thing deeply, he is destined to win it. When one is truly ready for a thing, it puts in its appearance. One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat. Before success comes in any ones life, he is sure to meet with some temporary defeat and perhaps some failure. Failure takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach.

Life is strange and often imponderable. Both the successes and failures have their roots in simple experiences. Success comes to those who become success conscious. Henley has said that we are the masters of our fate and the captains of our souls, because we have the power to control our thoughts. Our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds. Everyone who reaches the age of understanding of the purpose of money wishes for it. Wishing will not bring riches, but a strong desire with a state of mind and planning definite ways will.

This world in which we live is demanding new ideas, new ways of doing things, new inventions, new methods of teaching, new ideas and so on. Back of all these new and better things, lies definiteness of purpose, the knowledge and a burning desire to possess it. This changed world requires practical dreamers who will put their dreams into action. Tolerance and an open mind are practical necessities of the dreamers of today. Practical dreamers never quit. Awake, arise and assert are three pillars for the dreamers. A burning desire to do or to be, is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. Open mindedness is essential for belief, closed minds do not inspire faith, courage and belief. Nature raps up in the impulse of strong desire that something which recognizes no such word as impossible and accepts no such reality as failure.

Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent and transmits it to infinite intelligence. Faith is the only agency through which the cosmic force of infinite intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.

Knowledge should be organized and intelligently directed, through practical plans of action, only then knowledge is power. An educated person is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge but who can develop the faculties of mind and acquire anything he wants, without violating the rights of others. Successful person never stop acquiring specialized knowledge related to their profession or business.

The imagination is very important wherein all plans are created and shaped. The impulse, the desire is given shape, form and action through the aid of imagination. The creative imagination functions when the conscious mind is stimulated through the emotion of a strong desire. The great leaders of business, industry, finance and the great artists become great because they developed the creative imagination. Ideas which are the beginning point of all fortunes, are products of the imagination. The influence of this idea now benefits every civilized country in the world, pouring out a continuous stream of gold to all who touch it.

Ideas are intangible forces, but they have more power than the physical brains that give birth to them and then put ideas into operation. They have the power to live on, after the brain that creates them has returned to dust. Everything man creates or acquires begins in the form of desire, that desire is taken on the first lap of its journey, from the abstract to the concrete, into the workshop of the imagination, where plans for its transition are created and organized.

When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that the plans are not sound, rebuild those plans but never quit. A quitter never wins and a winner never quits. A person should have self- confidence and courage which is based upon strong knowledge, self- control, decisiveness and definite plans.

Money without brains is dangerous. Capital consists not only of money, but more particularly of highly organized, intelligent groups of persons consisting of scientists, mathematicians, educators, chemists, doctors, and lawyers etc. who can plan ways and means of using money efficiently for the good of public and profitably to them. They support colleges, hospitals, schools, build good roads, publish newspapers, and pay most of the cost of the government, human progress and enlightenment. Millions of people are engaged in demanding more pay for less service, but it is against the law of Economics- which neither recognizes nor tolerates getting without giving for long.

Keep your own counsel by reaching your own decisions and following them. Use your brain and mind and reach to decisions. Keep your eyes and ears wide open, and your mouth closed. Genuine wisdom is usually counted through modesty and silence as the deeds and not words are what count most. Mind- control is the result of self- discipline and habit.

The most common weakness of all human beings is the habit of leaving their minds open to the negative influence of other people. Recognize that negative influences often work on you through your sub conscious mind; therefore they are difficult to detect and therefore, keep your mind closed against all people who depress or discourage you in any way.

The reward is worthy of your effort; will you make the start and be convinced?
