Law of Success
Self Confidence is lesson #2 in Napoleon Hill’s Law of Success and I will put my twist on it. The concept of good and evil is a very easy concept to relate to. We remember the old familiar picture of two beings resting on our shoulders whispering into our ears. The one being dress in red is trying to get you to take evil actions, while the other being dress in white is trying to get you to do the right thing. The one you listen dictates your destiny. Our thoughts do determine our destiny most of the time. This can be likened to building your self-confidence to achieve whatever your heart desires. Fear is one the most detrimental opponent to achieving success in life.
The red dress being attacks your mind with a constant “you can’t do it-you are afraid to try—…” in your ear. Fear can lead you to do some weird things in your life. The telephone is a small instrument that can bring the strongest and biggest man to his knees. It is amazing that when the telephone is your main source of your livelihood and just the thought of picking it up and dialing a prospect could lead you to failure. Self-confidence is one of the greatest proponents to counteract fear. The main six fears are listed below:
- Fear of Poverty
- The Fear of Old Age
- The Fear of Criticism
- The Fear of loss of Someone
- The Fear of Ill health
- The Fear of Death
Most human beings are attacked by these fears in one way or another. Napoleon Hill states “that nothing brings man so much suffering and humiliation as doe’s poverty.” Napoleon Hill states that man gets satisfaction out of eating a fellow man out financially while animals eat each other physically. The combination of these facts makes it one of the most dangerous fears. You must have confidence in yourself to achieve your goals and aspiration in life, business and relationship.
