13 Steps To Riches - Think and Grow Rich Summary - dsmotivations

Imagine you have access to five hundred of

the richest people in America.
You've collected all their wisdom, all their knowledge and you have found thirteen principles that all five hundred of these people have in common.

This took Napoleon Hill twenty-five years of research to get this.
In the book that we're discussing today, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, the thirteen principles to thinking and growing rich.

Let's discuss the first principle now.

1. Step Number One - Desire

Napoleon Hill describes this as a burning desire, not a hope, not a wish, but a burning to achieve what you want and he gives a six-step process how to write out the goal and specifics.

a) The first one being fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire.

b) Number two determine what you intend to 
start giving for return for the money that you desire

c) Number three establish an exact date when 
you intend to possess the money you desire

d) Number four Create a plan for carrying out your desire and put it into action

e) Step number five write the amount that you desire, the date you want to achieve it and the plan you have to make it happen.

Here's an example of what your sentence should

look like - I will be making one hundred thousand

dollars per year by September second two thousand

and eighteen offering my services as a D.J.

Of course, that's not on Christmas Eve and

the times I'm checking my naughty list.

f) The six and final step to carrying out

your desire is to read your written statement

out loud twice a day when you get up in the morning and right before bed.
When reading this list see yourself as already in possession of the money

2. Step Number Two - Faith

It doesn't matter how strong your desire is,

if you don't believe in what you're trying

to do, it's not going to happen.

In our silly example, I gave earlier with

Santa Claus if he believes he doesn't have

the time to become a great D.J. and make six

figures a year it's likely not going to happen.

Faith is crucial.

If your faith isn't strong right now, don't

worry about it because that's what Step three
is all about.

3. Step Number Three - Autosuggestion

Autosuggestion is the agency of control through

which an individual may voluntarily feed his

subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative

nature, or by neglect, permit thoughts of

a destructive nature to find their way into

the rich garden of their mind.

Before moving to the next step, repeat step

one with that list and remember, when you're

reading that list out loud in the morning

and at night, read it with emotion and a state

of absolute certainty as if it already happened

because your subconscious mind only acts on

thoughts that are emotionally charged.
Make sure these thoughts are eating your success,

not your failure.

4. Step Number Four - Specialized Knowledge

You don't become rich by becoming a jack of
all trades; you become rich by becoming a

master of one.

You have one man who is skilled at ten jobs

that pay ten dollars an hour as opposed to

one man who's very skilled at one job that

pays one hundred dollars an hour.

The key is not knowing a lot about general

information, it's about knowing a lot about

a very specific subject.

What is your one thing?

Pick that one skill you want to master and

master it successful people know this they

pick one thing they have specialized knowledge

and they outsource the rest.

They have a strong network that can make up

for their weaknesses.

5. Step Number Five - Imagination

Author Napoleon Hill says it has been said

that man can create anything which he can


Think about all that exists in the world today

computers lava lamps selfies stick at one
point all of this was in the mind of an individual

carried out by all these thirteen steps that

we're discussing now but imagination is crucial

to manifesting your desires

6. Step Number Six - Organized Planning

I like to use the idea of a Rubik's Cube.

Let's say your goal is to run a marathon running

twenty-six point two miles, you haven't been

that active.

Running twenty-six point two miles right now

seems impossible, just like solving a Rubik's

cube seems impossible but walking ten minutes

right now is like taking a Rubik's cube and

making one turn in the right direction.

That's where the organized planning comes

in, not in the big things that you want to

accomplish but the small things that you can

do right now.

You achieve big by thinking and acting small.

7. Step Number Seven - Decision

People who fail to make money are easily influenced

by the opinions of others.
It could be family and friends where their

opinions are well intentioned or not, they

often hold you back.
You need to make your own decisions and the

biggest difference between unsuccessful people
and successful people are, is that unsuccessful

people take a long time to make a decision
but they're quick to change their mind; successful

people are quick to make a decision and very
slow to change their mind.
Sometimes in life in order to be successful,

you have to burn your bridges to not go back
to the side that you're going down one path

and you're not changing your mind.

8. Step Number Eight - Persistence

The more intense your desire, the more likely
you're going to persist.
But once you make a decision and it's getting

tough it's so easy to want to give up to go

down another path.

But in order to be successful, you have to

stick with something.

So, I know the feeling so if there's something

that you really want to do, decide you're

going to do it, persist no matter what and

eventually, you'll be successful.

9. Step Number Nine - The Power of the Mastermind

A mastermind's defined as a coordination of

knowledge and effort in a spirit of harmony

between two or more people for the attainment

of a definite purpose.

Basically, when you mastermind, synergies

involved where one plus one equals three.

So, think about this picture here; you have

now collected the wisdom of all these people

in this picture that's hundreds of years.

Take turns focusing on each other's problems

and you'll all solve your solutions much faster.

But keep in mind these have to be from people

you trust not from clowns

10. Step Number Ten - The Mystery of Sex Transmutation

According to Napoleon Hill destroy the sex
plan, whether in man or beast and you have
removed the major source of action.

This chapter seems very odd but a lot of men

do what they do because they're trying to save the princess, they're trying to win the heart of the woman they love.
Men with the sexual drive develop imagination, courage, will power, persistence and creative ability.
It's a powerful driving force that can be
channeled through creative pursuits.

This may be the benefit of not watching, porn

not masturbating because you can channel that sexual energy toward your goals and dreams
and make it easier to achieve them

11. Step Number Eleven - The Subconscious Mind

Positive and negative thoughts cannot occupy the mind at the same time.
The one that you choose to focus on more is the one that's going to dominate.
It's your responsibility to make sure these positive emotions are the dominating influence of your mind.

Napoleon Hill says - "the seven most powerful positive emotions are desire, faith, love, sex, enthusiasm, romance, and hope."

The author also says - "make a habit of applying each of these emotions every day."

One of my favorite ways is using my enthusiasm
 to light up a friend, give them hope for a better future.

12. Step Number Twelve - The Brain

The point Hill believes that there's a collective mind, a universal intelligence that we all can tap into through vibrational thought.

When we're thinking about positive emotions, our vibrations are higher and our subconscious mind is the sending station of our brain.
When we're in a positive state, we're operating at a high vibrational frequency and when we do this, we are connected with the universal mind.

It's like masterminding with your universal Source where you have infinite years of wisdom provided to you.

This chapter seemed strange to me when I read the book years ago.

But now, through meditation, I'm starting to believe in it a little bit more.

Final Step

13. Step Number Thirteen - The Sixth Sense

The point Hill says The Sixth Sense the five is description it cannot be described to a person who has not mastered the other principles of this philosophy.
Because such a person has no knowledge and no experience with the Sixth Sense, this can't be compared.
There is no practical advice for this step, but I look at it like a baker's dozen - you
master the other twelve steps, this one comes to you automatically
