the object of one’s desires.
If you ﬁnd you are weak in PERSISTENCE, center your attention upon the instructions contained in the chapter on “Power”; surround yourself with a “MASTER MIND” group, and through the cooperative efforts of the members of this
group, you can develop persistence. You will ﬁnd additional instructions for the
development of persistence in the chapters on auto-suggestion, and the subconscious mind. Follow the instructions outlined in these chapters until your habit
nature hands over to your subconscious mind, a clear picture of the object of your
DESIRE. From that point on, you will not be handicapped by lack of persistence.
Your subconscious mind works continuously, while you are awake, and while you
are asleep. Spasmodic, or occasional effort to apply the rules will be of no value
to you. To get RESULTS, you must apply all of the rules until their application
becomes a ﬁxed habit with you. In no other way can you develop the necessary
“money consciousness.” 139 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH POVERTY is attracted to the one whose mind is favorable to it, as money is attracted to him whose mind has been deliberately prepared to attract it, and through

PERSISTENCE you will win.

You are lying in bed, half awake, with a feeling that you are about to smother. You
are unable to turn over, or to move a muscle. You realize that you MUST BEGIN
to regain control over your muscles. Through persistent effort of will-power, you
ﬁnally manage to move the ﬁngers of one hand. By continuing to move your ﬁngers, you extend your control to the muscles of one arm, until you can lift it. Then
you gain control of the other arm in the same manner. You ﬁnally gain control
over the muscles of one leg, and then extend it to the other leg. THEN-WITH
ONE SUPREME EFFORT OF WILL- you regain complete control over your muscular system, and “snap” out of your nightmare. The trick has been turned step
You may ﬁnd it necessary to “snap” out of your mental inertia, through a similar procedure, moving slowly at ﬁrst, then increasing your speed, until you gain
complete control over your will. Be PERSISTENT no matter how slowly you may,
at ﬁrst, have to move.
WITH PERSISTENCE WILL COME SUCCESS.
