on the building and execution of plans, and you will understand the importance
of the thought conveyed. THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND WORKS DAY AND NIGHT.
Through a method of procedure, unknown to man, the subconscious mind draws
upon the forces of Inﬁnite Intelligence for the power with which it voluntarily
transmutes one’s desires into their physical equivalent, making use, always of the
most practical media by which this end may be accomplished.
You cannot entirely control your subconscious mind, but you can voluntarily
hand over to it any plan, desire, or purpose which you wish transformed into
concrete form. Read, again, instructions for using the subconscious mind, in the
chapter on autosuggestion.
There is plenty of evidence to support the belief that the subconscious mind is the
connecting link between the ﬁnite mind of man and Innite Intelligence. It is the
intermediary through which one may draw upon the forces of Inﬁnite Intelligence
at will. It, alone, contains the secret process by which mental impulses are modiﬁed and changed into their spiritual equivalent. It, alone, is the medium through 180 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH which prayer may be transmitted to the source capable of answering prayer.

of the instructions given in the chapter on DESIRE. You will also understand why
you have been repeatedly admonished to MAKE YOUR DESIRES CLEAR, AND
TO REDUCE THEM TO WRITING.
You will also understand the necessity of PERSISTENCE in carrying out instructions.
The thirteen principles are the stimuli with which you acquire the ability to reach,
and to inﬂuence your subconscious mind. Do not become discouraged, if you cannot do this upon the ﬁrst attempt. Remember that the subconscious mind may be
voluntarily directed only through habit, under the directions given in the chapter
on FAITH. You have not yet had time to master faith. Be patient. Be persistent.
A good many statements in the chapters on faith and auto-suggestion will be repeated here, for the beneﬁt of YOUR subconscious mind. Remember, your subconscious mind functions voluntarily, whether you make any effort to inﬂuence it
or not. This, naturally, suggests to you that thoughts of fear and poverty, and all
negative thoughts serve as stimuli to your subconscious mind, unless, you mas...
