Six Ways To Turn Desires Into Gold – From Think and Grow Rich

If you have read it, it is worth reading again and making notes. If you have not read it,  you will be well served by reading it.  The book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill  is readily available on line. It is priceless.

I am writing formula “Six Ways To Turn Desires Into Gold” as a reminder for myself. I hope you benefit from this formula.

“Every human being who reaches the age of understanding of the purpose of money wishes for it. Wishing will not bring riches.  But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure will bring riches.

The method by which desire for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent, consists of six definitive, practical steps:

First: fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money.” Be definitive as to the amount.

Second: determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. There is no such thing as something for nothing.

Third: establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.

Fourth: create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

Fifth: write out a clear concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for it’s acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan though which you intend to accumulate it.

Sixth: read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. As you read – see and feel and believe yourself already in possession of the money.

  1. I have to take a minute to thank you Steve. I really believe that people get in the habit of “I know that” and they forget about the basic tools of success. Most every entrepreneur I know, including myself has read Napolean Hill multiple times over the years but with all the info coming at us constantly it is so easy to lose sight of the fundamental groundwork that sets the plan in motion to make everything else we do work for us in a focused and single minded manner

    Over the years on Facebook and in your blogs, I have come to rely on your goodwill, your friendship and most especially your business guidance. Thank you once again. Love, Alexandra

  2. This is so great!. It is so amazing that this book is still so relevant in today’s world. Another great book by Hill is the Twelve steps to riches. It goes into more detail on this. Thanks for posting.
