Unformatted text preview: ictims; I have seen it serve as the medium by which men
staged a comeback after having been defeated in a hundred different ways; I have
seen it provide my own son with a normal, happy, successful life, despite Nature’s
having sent him into the world without ears.
How can one harness and use the power of DESIRE? This has been answered
through this, and the subsequent chapters of this book. This message is going out
to the world at the end of the longest, and perhaps, the most devastating depression America has ever known. It is reasonable to presume that the message may
come to the attention of many who have been wounded by the depression, those
who have lost their fortunes, others who have lost their positions, and great numbers who must reorganize their plans and stage a comeback. To all these I wish
to convey the thought that all achievement, no matter what may be its nature, or
its purpose, must begin with an intense, BURNING DESIRE for something deﬁnite. 38 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH Through some strange and powerful principle of “mental chemistry” which she
has never divulged, Nature wraps up in the impulse of STRONG DESIRE “that

The Second Step toward Riches
FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Inﬁnite Intelligence, as in
the case of prayer.
The emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX are the most powerful of all the major
positive emotions. When the three are blended, they have the effect of “coloring”
the vibration of thought in such a way that it instantly reaches the subconscious
mind, where it is changed into its spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces
a response from Inﬁnite Intelligence.
Love and faith are psychic; related to the spiritual side of man. Sex is purely biological, and related only to the physical. The mixing, or blending, of these three
emotions has the effect of opening a direct line of communication between the
ﬁnite, thinking mind of man, and Inﬁnite Intelligence. How To Develop Faith
There comes, now, a statement which will give a better understanding of the
importance the principle of auto-suggestion assumes in the transmutation of desire into its physical, or monetary equivalent; namely: FAITH is a state of mind
which may be induced, or created, by afﬁrmation or repeated instructions to the
subconscious mind, through the principle of auto-suggestion.
As an illustration, consider the purpose for which you are, presumably, reading
this book. The object is, naturally, to acquire the ability to transmute the intangible thought impulse of DESIRE into its physical counterpart, money. By following
the instructions laid down in the chapters on auto-suggestion, and the subconscious mind, as summarized i...
