dominate your mind so completely, that the negatives cannot enter it.
Only by following these instructions literally, and continuously, can you gain
control over your subconscious mind. The presence of a single negative in your
conscious mind is sufﬁcient to destroy all chances of constructive aid from your
If you are an observing person, you must have noticed that most people resort
to prayer ONLY after everything else has FAILED! Or else they pray by a ritual
of meaningless words. And, because it is a fact that most people who pray, do so
ONLY AFTER EVERYTHING ELSE HAS FAILED, they go to prayer with their
minds ﬁlled with FEAR and DOUBT, which are the emotions the subconscious
mind acts upon, and passes on to Inﬁnite Intelligence.
Likewise, that is the emotion which Inﬁnite Intelligence receives, and ACTS
UPON. 184 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH If you pray for a thing, but have fear as you pray, that you may not receive it, or

in retrospect. Less than a hundred years ago, men believed the lightning to be
evidence of the wrath of God, and feared it. Now, thanks to the power of FAITH,
men have harnessed the lightning and made it turn the wheels of industry. Much
less than a hundred years ago, men believed the space between the planets to be
nothing but a great void, a stretch of dead nothingness. Now, thanks to this same
power of FAITH, men know that far from being either dead or a void, the space
between the planets is very much alive, that it is the highest form of vibration
known, excepting, perhaps, the vibration of THOUGHT. Moreover, men know
that this living, pulsating, vibratory energy which permeates every atom of matter, and ﬁlls every niche of space, connects every human brain with every other
What reason have men to believe that this same energy does not connect every
human brain with Inﬁnite Intelligence? There a...
