Thoughts pass from one mind to another, voluntarily, whether or not this fact is recognized by either the person releasing the
thoughts, or the persons who pick up those thoughts.
The person who gives expression, by word of mouth, to negative or destructive
thoughts is practically certain to experience the results of those words in the form
of a destructive “kick-back.” The release of destructive thought impulses, alone,
without the aid of words, produces also a “kickback” in more ways than one. First
of all, and perhaps most important to be remembered, the person who releases
thoughts of a destructive nature, must suffer damage through the breaking down
of the faculty of creative imagination.
Secondly, the presence in the mind of any destructive emotion develops a negative personality which repels people, and often converts them into antagonists.
The third source of damage to the person who entertains or releases negative
thoughts, lies in this signiﬁcant fact-these thought-impulses are not only damaging to others, but they IMBED THEMSELVES IN THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
OF THE PERSON RELEASING THEM, and there become a part of his character.
One is never through with a thought, merely by releasing it. When a thought is released, it spreads in every direction, through the medium of the ether, but it also
plants itself permanently in the subconscious mind of the person releasing it.
Your business in life is, presumably to achieve success. To be successful, you must
ﬁnd peace of mind, acquire the material needs of life, and above all, attain HAPPINESS. All of these evidences of success begin in the form of thought impulses.
You may control your own mind, you have the power to feed it whatever thought
impulses you choose. With this privilege goes also the responsibility of using it
constructively. You are the master of your own earthly destiny just as surely as
you have the power to control your own thoughts. You may inﬂuence, direct, and
eventually control your own environment, making your life what you want it to
be-or, you may neglect to exercise the privilege which is yours, to make your life
to order, thus casting yourself upon the broad sea of “Circumstance” where you
will be tossed hither and yon, like a chip on the waves of the ocean. 223 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH THE DEVIL’S WORKSHOP: THE SEVENTH BASIC EVIL
In addition to the Six Basic Fears, there is another evil by which people suffer. It
constitutes a rich soil in which the seeds of failure grow abundantly. It is so subtle
that its presence often is not detected. This afﬂiction cannot properly be classed
as a fear. IT IS MORE DEEPLY SEATED AND MORE OFTEN FATAL THAN ALL
OF THE SIX FEARS. For want of a better name, let us call this evil SUSCEPTIBILITY TO NEGATIVE INFLUENCES.
