The Eleventh Step to Riches The Subconscious Mind Per Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich

The subconscious mind holds many mysteries for all of us yet Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich states that this is the eleventh step to riches.   The subconscious mind is the link between the conscious mind and implementation of any ideas and plans.  Have you ever waked up in the middle of the night with the solution to a problem that you had been wrestling with all day?  It could be a person name that for the life of you, you could not remember.  When you laid your head down the subconscious took over.  The fact that you gave attention to that problem was enough acknowledgments for your mind to go to work on the solution.  I might not know how the subconscious mind works, but I know that I work.

I enter a room and turn on the light switch and the majority of the time the lights comes on.  The average person might not know how electricity but they are not going to go out their way to learn why.  They will continue to enjoy these illuminations in total unknowing bliss; the subconscious mind is just like that.  When we tap into our subconscious mind we don’t need to know exactly how it works.  The main requirement is that we must tap into it.  The subconscious mind is a link between your conscious mind and your desires.  It is a medium that we know a small fraction of how it works, but we get evidence of it everyday.  The operation of the subconscious mind is a mystery, but left to its own vices will take your plan, desire or purpose to fruition.

The Tenth Step to Riches is Sex Transmutation Per Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich

My initial understanding of Napoleon Hill describing the tenth step to riches, Sex Transmutation, in his famous book “Think and Grow Rich” has evolved into a deeper understanding.  It is proven fact that when you read a book over and over again you will get different nuggets from it.  “Think and Grow Rich” is one such book.  I have now read this concept about six times now and my understanding is deeper. Transmute is the changing or transferring of one element or form of energy into another.

Watch the video below to learn more about my initial impression:

I thought originally that the tenth step to riches of Sex Transmutation was about abstaining from sex and using that power to achieve your goals.  I have expanded my thinking to include harnessing that power achieving a higher plane and then attacking your endeavors with a renew concentration.  I think that these concepts are similar to long distance runners and marathoners who push their bodies beyond what the average person can do.  Runners get into what is called a zone where they feel they can run forever.  These runners achieve a level where speed and comfort are maximized.

The runner has to fight internally when they reach the “wall” where the desire to quit becomes stronger and stronger.  As a runner you have to go deep to overcome ultimate failure.  Willpower is easier said than done, but the ultimate reward is substantial.  The stronger your power to will yourself to the finish line the closer you will be to being successful.  Sex transmutation is an excellent example of having to get into that “zone” to combat something that is so natural.

Sexual expression is a natural part of your life and can never be destroyed.  The choice is either finding a constructive outlet for it or indulging in the purely physical aspect of it.  An animal becomes docile after their sex organs are castrated so imagine a man without this source of power.  A transmutation of this energy will help you in the long term when you have the power to overcome the will to indulge in sexual activity.

Will You be The Rock That Redirects The Course of The River

“Will you be the rock that redirects the course of the river?” is a quote that I came across made by Claire Nuer.  The reason I think this resounded with me is because I was also listening to the Discovery Series this week and one of the Luminaries was discussing the power of water.  We might take a big bat and hit water with such force but to no avail and a sore arm is probably the only outcome that would result.  The water is just disturbed temporarily and goes back to flowing in its direction of choice without acknowledging you.  The power of the water is tremendous individually.  The real strength of water is that we may able to harness the power but never control it.  If we were able to harness the power that we have within us we would be more phenomenal.

The secret to our success lies deep down inside of us dormant.  The wonderful thing about something being dormant is that it has the potential to come alive.  One of best way to access it is through self empowerment and personal development.  The limiting beliefs that we have will not go away without learning new skills and knowledge.  The belief system that we live our daily live by are from years of negative conditioning.   We must systematically reach inside ourselves and reverse this state of being.  It is never too late to make that transformation.   The most influential people in the World always credit personal development as a reason for his or her success. We can choose to be the rock that redirects the direction of our lives or continue to watch the water return to its original as if our brief interference of its path which is our life did not phase it.

How to Use the Ninth Step to Riches Which is The Mastermind to Translate Your Plans Into Action?

Napoleon Hill in “Think and grow Rich” presents the power of the mastermind as the ninth step to riches. Your definite plans are useless without enough power to translate them into action. Napoleon Hill defined power as organized and intelligently directed knowledge. The mastermind group is two or more people who with definite plans work in a spirit of harmony towards riches. The power of the mastermind group is infinite. Power is required for the accumulation and retention of money. When you are working a home business opportunity you must utilize information and knowledge that will make you very powerful.

There are three sources of knowledge:

1. Infinite Intelligence

-source of knowledge acquired through Creative Imagination

2. Accumulated Experience

-knowledge that you acquired from schools and colleges that have been classified and organized

3. Experiment and Research

-comes from people gathering, classifying and organizing new facts daily

The steps to riches will be very difficult if people depended on their efforts alone. You will not have great power without a Mastermind group. Like minded people will inject the necessary element of power that you need to succeed in your home business opportunity. You must use definitive plans with persistence and imagination that includes selecting the best mastermind group. This act in itself will bring you half way to your goals. The master mind has two characteristics which are economic and psychic.

The economic phase comes with the advantage of advice, counsel and personal cooperation of a group of people in perfect harmony. The amount of wealth that has been amassed using this method is unfathomable. The saying is that success is determined by who you know not what you know. The negative connotation of this statement is the visualization of the “old boys’ network”. The average income of your five closest friends is normally your income. The master mind group works best if you select the best possible candidates, not just your “best friends”. Your mastermind group will be your “old boys’ network” to help you succeed in your home business opportunity.

The psychic phase is more abstract and difficult to understand, because it deals with spiritual forces. Napoleon Hill believes that no two minds can come together without creating a third invisible and intangible force. He compared this force to a third mind. The human mind is partly spiritual in nature and is a form of energy. The spiritual unit of energy that is formed when two minds combine in a harmonious nature is the psychic phase.

Henry Ford is a great example of someone who surrounded himself with a great group of master minds. Henry Ford was not a learned man but he believed in having the best people to do the task that he was unable to do. Henry Ford was able to amass a fortune using this variation of the mastermind group. Your group in your home business opportunity will be about five people not fifty like Henry Ford. Your mastermind group may be just as powerful as Henry Ford so use it to the best of your ability.

Personal Branding is Great for Your Personal Development Training.

Personal Branding is all about highlighting yourself as an expert and trustworthy person in your field. What knowledge do you bring to the table versus the competitors in your industry?  The expert or go to guy for information is normally the one that people recognizes and trust. The goal of a personal branding is to be that expert that people will do business with. Personal Branding is absolutely required even more, mainly due to the very impersonal nature of the Internet.  Use your personal development training to identify the type of leader that you would like to become known.

When I sold a high end home care system door to door many years ago, I did it through direct one on one contact with my customers. Customers who never saw your product before would call you to deliver it to their home never happened. This product has been sold this way for over 80 years and it will probably be done that way forever. The advent of the Internet and the other technologically Medias have now made selling more impersonal. We can go on E-Bay, purchase an item using Paypal and never see the person selling the item.

The personal touch is totally missing from the transaction. The majority of these transactions go through without a hitch, but what about the ones that the buying party is cheated. The trust factor is the first thing that is highlighted because obviously you did not know this person. Personal Branding helps put the trust factor back into buying and selling products on the Internet. People can now follow you on Twitter, get to know you better  on Facebook, read your thoughts and beliefs on your blog, check out your website, “Google” your name or company, etc. before they even go into business with you and that took them a total of 10 minutes.

I had to spend at least 2 hours in people’ homes when I sold door to door to develop the trust factor before they purchased the product. The rules of first impressions apply, because within a few minutes people will know whether they want to do business with you. The importance of a clear personal branding message that is genuine and authentic is the difference between people doing business with you or going to another expert.  Personal development will help you differentiate from the other leader in your industry.

Personal development is a key component in becoming successful.  Napoleon Hill in “Think and Grow Rich” discusses thirteen steps to riches.  Read my thoughts on the fifth step which is imagination.

Personal Developing Using Imagination,The Fifth Step to Riches

Imagination is the fifth step to riches in Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich”. The mind is so powerful that if you conceived you may achieve it.  The dictionary in your mind is filled with words.  You form sentences with these words.  The proper words placed together forms an idea.  Ideas are the starting place for all fortunes. Thomas Edison imagined a world where a lamp could be operated by electricity.  Thomas Edison had countless failures, yet today where would we be without his inventions.  The obvious answer is in the dark or reading by candlelight.  Imagination is responsible for countless inventions that have helped this world immensely.  We will discuss personal developing our imagination to create wealth.  The two types of imagination are Synthetic Imagination and Creative Imagination.

Synthetic Imagination arranges old concepts, ideas or plans into a new combination.  People tend to stay with what works and are not looking to set new precedence.  We should think of this as re-engineering processes into something better. Synthetic Imagination is the best processes to utilize in your home business.  You should follow the step by step system that has worked for many people before you.  Creative Imagination is based on “hunches” and “inspirations” where new ideas are created.

Creative people are trendsetters willing to navigate in uncharted waters.  They are willing to go down the path less traveled.  Investing in personal developing your mind, body and spirit is one way to set you above the rest. The average person is not happy with their life and financial situation, but is unwilling to change it. Your commitment to personal developing allows you to use a combination of both synthetic imagination and creative imagination.

Success in personal developing is limited by how well you are able to use your imagination to the fullest.  Is it better to have book smart or common sense?  They are book smart people that can follow a system to the letter, but if one things changes they will be unable to adapt.  They are many creative people who once the idea comes to life.  They are unable and unwilling to deal with the business aspect of it.  The person who can master both imaginations will succeed faster in personal development.  We are only limited by our inability to develop and utilize our imagination.

The crux of the matter is that we have not reach the peak of the mountain with our current use of our imagination.  The single handed best way to get what we truly want is to imagine success as if it already happened on a daily basis.  If you are bedridden for many years, you will spend a significant amount of time retraining and rebuilding your muscles.   Your imagination is not the only method to create wealth while using personal developing to strengthen your inside.  You must use all the different methods and strategies that you come across in your personal development.

You Will Not Succeed Until You Master The Seventh Step to Riches

Napoleon Hill in his famous book “Think and Grow Rich” states that decision is the seventh step to riches. The Latin root for the word decision means to cut off from alternatives. You looked at all the different scenarios, and then you severed the unacceptable ones. The scenario that is left is the one that you pursue. Your decision making process must be very efficient and effective. The opposite of decision is procrastination, ironically procrastination is normally the decision that most people make. Procrastination is a twin to indecision. You must make the decision to be successful in your home based business and commit to it.  If you don’t make decisions, then procrastination will steal your success in your home business.

The ultimate goal is to make the proper decisions in ensuring success in your home based business. If people with opinions change your mind frequently, you will never attract money to your home based business. Your carefully selected mastermind group is the only people that you should receive an “opinion” on your proposal. There are a number of different ways to evaluate a situation, choose one and use it to come to a final decision.  When you reach decisions in a timely manner you, then you become a master over procrastination.  The toughest decisions to make are those that not only impact your life, but also your family.

The people who overcome procrastination will allow the results to make the necessary statement.  A 26.2 mile marathon is not completed until the runner makes the decision to take the first step. The majority of failures may be attributed to a lack of decision.   Inaction is a major cause of failure in the decision making process.  Major corporations that previously use to sweep failures under the rug are now looking at them more closely.  These corporations are trying to learn from these failures to avoid the same thing happening in the future. Most successful people make decisions quickly and are very slow to change them. The unsuccessful person makes decision slowly and changes them rapidly.

The value of your decisions is depended on your courage to make them. The great decisions made by leaders, such as Abraham Lincoln was reached at great risks. Abraham Lincoln made decisions that ultimately led to his death.  The decisions you make not only impact you but affect everyone in your life. The conclusion that you reached after consideration must not be taken lightly. Your telephone feels like a hundred pounds when you pick it up to call your leads. You made the decision to be a success in your home business yet you procrastinate in making those phone calls. When you don’t make those phone calls, then you are allowing procrastination to run your home business. Your success or failure in your home business is dependent on your actions or in actions.

6 Excuses People Use to Delay Their Personal Development

Your personal development is depending on how you deal with certain obstacles.  The major obstacles that you need to overcome to clear your brain are procrastination.   Procrastination renders your desire to succeed in your life and business ineffective. Procrastinating is the opposite of decision. When people procrastinate productivity becomes non-existent.  The pain of discipline weighs ounces while the pain of regret weight pounds. Overcoming procrastination is a much easier way to achieving success.   Excuses are monument of inadequacy; therefore you should not excel in them.  There are six main excuses why people procrastinate.

6 Excuses why people procrastinate:

1. You’re Bored.

When you life become routine and you just go through the motion. When the initial enthusiasm of investing in their personal development wears off, most people need a new challenge.  You must ask yourself these simple questions.  Am I bored with what I’m Doing?  Why am I bored?  What would give me more energy?  You must recognize that you are bored and be very aware of your feelings.  Successful people look for bigger and better opportunities to keep their juices flowing.  The appeal of routine personal development strategies is never something they will settle for.  Personal development requires that you read books, listen to CD etc. and the overall process is time consuming.

2. You are overwhelmed with work.

Personal development forces you to prioritize your commitments.  Too many irons in the fire may lead you to procrastinate.  When you let things pile up by putting it off to the next day. You become clueless on how to get your assignments completed.  Once you are inefficient, then procrastination becomes it twin.  There are simple steps that you may take to overcome being overwhelmed.  A decisive person moves from one task to other quickly because they do not want to leave anything for later.  You become more self-empowered when you are able to balance your life as well as your other endeavors.

3. Your confidence has slipped.

Procrastination leads to fear and doubt.  When you are not sure that you have the ability to do a job, inaction occurs.  Doubting yourself makes your confidence slip.  When your confidence lessen, then that old beliefs systems start to creep into your mind.   Your thoughts dictate your destiny.  If your thoughts are negative, then your future will be negative.

4. You have a low self-worth

Low self esteem is a fall out from your confidence slipping.  When you have low self-worth you sometimes sabotage your success the closer you get to it. You feel like you don’t deserve success which may be due to a negative beliefs system or a traumatic past. If you have a self fulfilling prophecy, then the words you give attention, desire and focus will come back to you. Success in your life and business is only for those who truly want it.

5. You are doing work you don’t really enjoy.

Successful people do what unsuccessful people don’t do.  Your business sometimes requires that you do mundane tasks, such as paperwork.  These tasks are sometimes a necessary part of your business.  The best thing to do is focus on the things that you are great at and outsource the rest.  You will never enjoy everything that you do so you must find the right balance.

6. You are easily distracted, or just downright lazy!

This is the number one proponent for procrastination.  If you looking for an excuse not to do something, then you have no problem procrastinating.  Success takes consistent and persistent action and laziness has no rightful place in the equation.

Procrastination is a major killer to your personal development.  The previous 6 things discuss are the main reasons why people excel in procrastination.  When people become proficient in procrastinating, then they are guaranteed to fail in their life and business.  There are many ways to overcome procrastination, but the best way is to apply consistent and persistent actions without reservation.  Personal development is only as good as the effort that you put into it.

Completing your Unfinished Business is a Major Step in Your Personal Development

Personal development is continuous and never ending process. You must look at the good, the bad, and the ugly part of your personality.  The bad part might be how you deal with issues in your life.  The vast majority of people put off things to be done the next day.  Unfinished business in your life, health, relationship and business may lead you to become very overwhelmed. The thing to do is to resolve these issues as soon as time permits. The main reason people don’t tackle unfinished business is because of fear.  Unfinished business is all the things in your life that you have not dealt with for whatever reason.  If left unchecked a downward spiral occurs until life is totally out of control.  This may take an extraordinary amount of energy to maintain.   Opportunity knocks on the front door but you are on the floor wrestling with the heavy burden of unfinished business. You must figure out a way to deal with it.

There are three ways to handle this:

1. You can play the denial game

If I don’t acknowledge it, then it does not exist.  Your expenses are spirally out of control every month and you just stack the bills in a neat pile on your desk.  You feel like if you do not open the bill then your debt is not real.  Denial only leads to a huge check that you definitely will be unable to cash.

2. You can go into limbo

You are treading water neither going forward nor falling back just staying in limbo.  You are stuck in a neutral position that will not help you resolve your unfinished business issues.  Procrastination is a killer of productivity and efficiency.

3.  You can confront the issue head on.

There is risk in this action while the other two requires none so most people choose the latter.  You must step into your fear otherwise the repercussions will be severe.  Fear holds us back and sometimes strips us of our confidence.  You must take care of your unfinished business head on or live with the consequences.  The ringing of the telephone brings you so much dread because you think it is the creditor on the other end.  Answer the phone you might be surprised what you may be able to work out.  The solutions are so simple that it amazes us, especially when we make a mountain out of a mole hill.  Your energy will come back to you miraculously and all things that you put off will no longer fester inside of you.

You will be closer to your personal development goals, when your mind is free and clear on a continuous basis of  your unfinished business.  You have three choices on how to deal with unfinished business so choose wisely.  Electrical current takes the path of least resistance but that does not mean it is the best path for you.

7 Ways to Simply Ask For Help to Improve Your Home Business

There are many advertisements on the internet that states grow your home business on autopilot with a system. These companies seem to be selling a “lazy” way to increase your wealth.  You can grow your home business by using some simple strategies.  You might have a great website, capture page, blog etc. but if you don’t have a call to action.  You must ask your potential business partner to do business with you.  You may ask your potential business partners for their business using seven different methods.

The 7 different ways to ask are listed below:

1. Ask for information.

The best way to find out information is to ask questions, and then listen attentively to the answers.  You must not anticipate what you think the person is going to say and answer as soon as possible.  Listening is a dying art that we must all revive.  The main objective here is to focus on helping the person that you are meeting with and not have dollars signs in your eyes.  The type of questions you asked should begin with who, why, what, where, when and how to acquire the information you need.

2. Ask for business.

There are a vast majority of salespeople who are scared to ask for the order.  The actual number of salespeople is 60% that after doing a complete presentation of their product or service never attempt to “close” the sale.  A kid is the best salesperson that you will ever meet.  When kids want something they will ask you again and again until the end of time to get it.

3. Ask for written endorsements.

Testimonials are one of the best ways to give yourself instant credibility.  These testimonials state that you are a trustworthy person who delivers what you promise.  People always want to feel like the person they are about to enter a partnership with is tried and true.

4. Ask for top-quality referrals

Referrals are automatic testimonial that state that a “friend” have looked at your product or service and they felt that you were worthy enough to give you another “friend” name.  They will look at your product or service more readily, than if you had cold call them.

5. Ask for more business.

You must have different things for sale.  It is always cheaper to keep a client, than it is to go out and acquire a new one.  The Business  Model of people like Tony Robbins is to bring you in at lower level products and then offer you an incremental higher cost seminar on a regular basis.

6. Ask to renegotiate.

When you think you are getting the best deal, you come to realize that it can be better.  For example if you think are paying the best rate on your car insurance for many years does not mean you can’t pick up the phone and ask for a better rate.

7. Ask for feedback.

This is probably the scariest one of them all because people fear criticism.  When you ask for feedback you are trying to find out how you can improve your company.  You may be surprise how many new ideas could come from your clients.

You will improve the revenue of your home business simply by applying the 7 ways above.  People are using the internet to move further away from the selling process but asking is the way that some of the greatest corporations have been built.  No sale is made until someone asks for the order.  If you don’t ask then your potential business partner will continue to do what they have always done.  If you continue to do the same thing you have always done then you will get the same results.

The people who are looking for a get rich quick scheme will continue to do so.  The people who will improve their home business the true and tried ways will continue to strive way ahead of the others.  You may use the above 7 ways to increase your bottom line revenue in your home business.
