Positive or negative emotions come into our minds often. The mind is a powerful tool that can determine your success or failure in anything that you set out to to do.

It’s rare to find positive uplifting music in today’s mainstream music. I’m posting this video in all of my websites because it has so much significance of what is needed to succeed in life. “There’s Hope” by India Arie is the epitome to push on and make a difference in this world. The idea of hope and faith is also a major stepping stone in Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”. According to Napoleon Hill, faith is a state of mind that may be induced, or created, by affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind, through the principle of autosuggestion. One can convince the subconscious mind that you believe you will receive what you ask for. In plain English, to me faith is being certain of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see. Here is his formula on which faith is built
T > F > A > R Thoughts lead to Feelings which lead to Actions which Leads to Results
Faith is the external elixir which gives life, power and action to the impulse of thought!
Faith is the starting point of all accumulation of weath!
Faith is the basis of all miracles and mysteries that can’t be analyzed by the rules of science!
Faith is the only known antidote to FAILURE!
Faith is the element, the chemical which, when mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with Infinite Intelligence.
Faith is the element that transforms the ordinary vibration of thought, created by the finite mind of man, into the spiritual equivalent.
Faith is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Infinite Intelligence can be harnessed and used.
Each one of us is what we are today because of the dominating thoughts that we permit to occupy our minds. We can force our subscious minds to think in different positive ways. It’s amazing how many spiritual parallels there are with business principles. The idea of autosuggestion is another way of meditating and praying that is very spiritual in nature. Training your mind to be faithful and hopeful in any area in life is also a spiritual principle. Take some time to consider your faith level in your business and life and make it a great day!
I mentioned that I would continue to give more insights from my readings “Think and Grow Rich”. I have been feverishly writing down several topics in my writers notebook for future blogs. Now if I can just find the time to write it all down that would be fantastic! The life of a wife, mother and entrepreneur sure is pretty darn hectic. I love reading on the subject of leadership and learning where my personality fits into this world called life. Here are attributes that Napoleon Hill expounds upon in his book.
The Major Attributes of Leadership
Unwavering Courage self-confidence is key to a great leader
Self-Control It is hard to control a group of people if one can’t control themselves
A Keen Sense of Justice a leader can’t retain the respect of his team without a keen sense of fairness
Definiteness of Decision People that waver in their decisions constantly are not sure of themselves and it’s hard to trust people that are unsure of themselves
Definiteness of Plans The successful leader must plan the work and work the plan
The Habit of Doing More Than Paid For a leader does more than their team and goes the extra mile
A Pleasing Personality People enjoy being led by leaders that have a zeal and passion for life as this motivates them
Sympathy and Understanding leaders must be able to sympathize and understand their problems
Mastery of Detail the art of being organized and detail oriented are key elements of a successful leader
Willingness to Assume Full Responsibility if the team makes a mistake, a leader must be willing to accept responsibility
Cooperation leaders must instill the principle of cooperative effort within their teams
“Mine, Mine, Mine!” Those are very common words that come from my 3 year old daughter, Nelia’s mouth. She has this desire to take everything in her sight and make it hers. Although I have to guide her to reality and let her know when there are things that belong to her brother, I definitely appreciate her spirit. Her spirit is definitely one that mirrors the desire formula outlined in Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich.” I’m enjoying this book and I’m writing down key factors that really stand out to me as key drivers for success.
6 Ways to Turn Your Desires Into Gold
1. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money or goal that you desire and write it down
2. Determine what you expect to give as a service as result of receiving your desire
3. Specify exact date to receive amount of money or goal that you desire
4. Create definite plan for carrying out your desire
5. Write a clear concise statement that includes the details of steps 1-4.
6. Read written statement 2X daily (morning and night) See and feel yourself in possession of your goal
I know that discipline is a major factor in carrying out these steps. It is very hard to be consistent and disciplined especially when you have children. This is the main reason that Napoleon Hill advocates Complete Discipline as part of his 12 Real Riches criteria. This is the difference between the novice and the seasoned entrepreneur that has attained measurable success. Take these steps to heart and use them in your daily business. I know I will use this in my internet business.
My 6 year old son, Jayden, asks me this question all the time. Of course his definition of rich relates to only money. We have a 4,000 square foot house so maybe he thinks in terms of the size of our house as well but for the most part he refers to money. I told him there are many ways to be rich such as rich because you have a lot of friends, rich because you have a lot of love in your life, rich because you have many talents and rich because God has blessed you with a purpose in life not necessarily always money.
I have been wanting to read “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill for some time now. There was a part of me that didn’t want to read it because naturally it’s not my desire to become rich monetarily by the world’s standard. It has always been my desire to just have a little more than we need so as not to be entrapped by greed. However, I’ve been pleasantly surprised and impressed by what I’ve read so far. Here are the
12 Real Riches by Napoleon Hill.

8. Engaged in Labor of Love
9. Open Mind on all subjects towards all People
10. Complete Self Discipline
