Law of Success Lesson #5: Imagination

Filed under: Personal Development — Tags: , , , , — Shirland Carrington @ 12:33 am

Imagination is like Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities famous opening line “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair,…. ”  When we are reading the beginning we are trying to visualize the scene that he is describing so we may better get a grasp of where the story is going.  We automatically start thinking about the good times and the bad times in our lives.  When the good times flashes cross your mind you smile.  It is very difficult not to smile when you are thinking about good things.  The bad times take us to a place that we don’t like to be on a regular basis.  Our mood goes from a high to a low as we read this line.  Napoleon Hill uses this concept as it ties into initiative and leadership in his book Law of Success.

“You will never have a definite purpose in life, you will never have self-confidence, you will never have initiative and leadership unless you first create these qualities in your imagination and see yourself in possession of them.”  Imagination is the one thing in our lives that we have absolute control.  Think and Grow Rich stated that desire is the first step to riches.  Our thoughts determines our destiny.  When I was growing up in the 1980s I saw transformation in many people.  A drugs called “crack” was the main cause of these transformations.  I saw people that were productive citizen of the World turn into single focus organisms.  The focus became finding a way to get “high” again.

When you are focusing on getting “high” , how would you able to expand your imagination.  When your thoughts are on things that are not good for you, then it is easy to see your destiny.  Your destiny of self destruction is deeply embedded in your psyche.  When you flip it around and focus on something that is great for you, then you destiny of greatness is also written.  The choice is your….

Law of Success- Lesson # 2 Self-Confidence Part 2

Filed under: Personal Development — Tags: , , — Shirland Carrington @ 3:20 pm

“The Law of Success”  by Napoleon Hill starts with a key ingredient that must be present for success.  A  definite chief aim is required when your negative bubble is bigger than your positive bubble.  Self-confidence  follows the first lesson very closely.  The preamble to self confidence is overcoming one or all the six major fears.  Your belief in yourself may be eroded by one of the fears that Napoleon Hill feels will flatten you like a pancake.  The confidence that you develop within your being is critical to achieving success in your life. Self-confidence is a very close twin to perseverance and just as important.

Mother Nature is one the best place to watch self-confidence in action. The mighty lion walking through the jungle with a dominating presence that makes him the “king of the jungle”.  The lion did not wake up one day and automatically say I am king hear me roar.  The truth of the matter is that he inherits some of his confidence naturally and the rest is developed by his environment.  A lesson in a lion cub’s life might go like this.  The lion cub notices that most animals stay away from him as he travels through the forest.  The young cub would do what comes naturally, which is test the limit of just how far these animals would stay away from him.  This environmental training would help him determine his place in the world as a lion.  The rest of his education will come directly from his parents.  The combination of real world application and The finish product would be a mighty king of the Jungle.

The king(or queen) of self-confidence is an imposing character that accomplish all the goals that he or she set for themselves.  Napoleon Hill stated that “…ambition and Self-confidence, and without these essential qualities a man will be carried through life on the wings of uncertainty,…”.  The student who sit in the back of the class unless he does something drastic is destined to float on those wings.  Self-confidence is liken by Napoleon Hill to that of an electric battery, therefore keeping the mind recharged and positive. The more confident that you are the more positive you will be achieving your goals, thereby attracting people, places, and situations that aids you in your objectives.  The reverse is also true the more negative you are will attract in kind.  It is obvious that the real choice is developing your self-confidence.

Self-confidence would help you achieve success far quicker than a severe lack of it.  The more confidence that you possess inside the more likely with your definite chief aim that you will succeed.  Napoleon Hill stated that whatever the mind of man can conceive as long as he believe…..

Law of Success- Lesson # 2 Self Confidence Part 1

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:

  1. Fear of Poverty
  2. The Fear of Old Age
  3. The Fear of Criticism
  4. The Fear of loss of  Someone
  5. The Fear of Ill health
  6. 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.

I will continue with this topic in my next article.  Please comment or provide any feedback.
