Unformatted text preview: SELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY. 61 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH For example :-Suppose that you intend to accumulate $50,000 by the ﬁrst of
January, ﬁve years hence, that you intend to give personal services in return for
the money, in the Capacity of a salesman. Your written statement of your purpose
should be similar to the following:
“By the ﬁrst day of January, 19.., I will have in my possession $50,000, which
will come to me in various amounts from time to time during the interim.
“In return for this money I will give the most efﬁcient service of which I am
capable, rendering the fullest possible quantity, and the best possible quality of
service in the capacity of salesman of (describe the service or merchandise you
intend to sell).
“I believe that I will have this money in my possession. My faith is so strong
that I can now see this money before my eyes. I can touch it with my hands. It
is now awaiting transfer to me at the time, and in the proportion that I deliver
the service I intend to render in return for it. I am awaiting a plan by which to
accumulate this money, and I will follow that plan, when it is received.”
Second. Repeat this program night and morning until you can see, (in your imagination) the money you intend to accumulate.
Third. Place a written copy of your statement where you can see it night and

Scepticism, in connection with ALL new ideas, is characteristic of all human beings. But if you follow the instructions outlined, your scepticism will soon be replaced by belief, and this, in turn, will soon become crystallized into ABSOLUTE
FAITH. Then you will have arrived at the point where you may truly say, “I am the
master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul!”

earthly destiny, but most of them have failed to say why he is the master. The
reason that man may be the master of his own earthly status, and especially his
