FAITH is the only known antidote for FAILURE!
FAITH is the element, the “chemical” which, when mixed with prayer, gives one
direct communication with Inﬁnite Intelligence.
FAITH is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration of thought, created by the ﬁnite mind of man, into the spiritual equivalent.
FAITH is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Inﬁnite Intelligence
can be harnessed and used by man.
EVERY ONE OF THE FOREGOING STATEMENTS IS CAPABLE OF
The proof is simple and easily demonstrated. It is wrapped up in the principle of
auto-suggestion. Let us center our attention, therefore, upon the subject of selfsuggestion, and ﬁnd out what it is, and what it is capable of achieving. It is a well
known fact that one comes, ﬁnally, to BELIEVE whatever one repeats to one’s
self, whether the statement be true or false. If a man repeats a lie over and over, 43 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH he will eventually accept the lie as truth. Moreover, he will BELIEVE it to be the
truth. Every man is what he is, because of the DOMINATING THOUGHTS which
he permits to occupy his mind. Thoughts which a man deliberately places in his
own mind, and encourages with sympathy, and with which he mixes any one or
more of the emotions, constitute the motivating forces, which direct and control
his every movement, act, and deed!
Comes, now, a very signiﬁcant statement of truth:
THOUGHTS WHICH ARE MIXED WITH ANY OF THE FEELINGS OF EMOTIONS, CONSTITUTE A “MAGNETIC” FORCE WHICH ATTRACTS, FROM THE
VIBRATIONS OF THE ETHER, OTHER SIMILAR, OR RELATED THOUGHTS.
A thought thus “magnetized” with emotion may be compared to a seed which,
when planted in fertile soil, germinates, grows, and multiplies itself over and over
again, until that which was originally one small seed, becomes countless millions
of seeds of the SAME BRAND!
The ether is a great cosmic mass of eternal forces of vibration. It is made up of
both destructive vibrations and constructive vibrations. It carries, at all times,
vibrations of fear, poverty, disease, failure, misery; and vibrations of prosperity,
health, success, and happiness, just as surely as it carries the sound of hundreds
of orchestrations of music, and hundreds of human voices, all of which maintain
their own individuality, and means of identiﬁcation, through the medium of radio.
From the great storehouse of the ether, the human mind is constantly attracting
vibrations which harmonize with that which DOMINATES the human mind. Any
thought, idea, plan, or purpose which one holds in one’s mind attracts, from the
vibrations of the ether, a host of its relatives, adds these “relatives” to its own
force, and grows until it becomes the dominating, MOTIVATING MASTER of the
individual in whose mind it has been housed.
Now, let us go back to the starting point, and become informed as to how the
original seed of an idea, plan, or purpose may be planted in the mind. The information is easily conveyed: any idea, plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind
through repetition of thought. This is why you are asked to write out a statement
of your major purpose, or Deﬁnite Chief Aim, commit it to memory, and repeat it,
in audible words, day after day, until...
