Unformatted text preview: these vibrations of sound have reached your
subconscious mind. 44 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH We are what we are, because of the vibrations of thought which we pick up and
register, through the stimuli of our daily environment.
Resolve to throw off the inﬂuences of any unfortunate environment, and to build
your own life to ORDER. Taking inventory of mental assets and liabilities, you
will discover that your greatest weakness is lack of self-conﬁdence. This handicap can be surmounted, and timidity translated into courage, through the aid of
the principle of autosuggestion. The application of this principle may be made
through a simple arrangement of positive thought impulses stated in writing,
memorized, and repeated, until they become a part of the working equipment of
the subconscious faculty of your mind.
First. I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Deﬁnite Purpose
in life, therefore, I DEMAND of myself persistent, continuous action toward its
attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.

all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use,
and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of
my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selﬁshness,
and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative
attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe
in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself. 45 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud
once a day, with full FAITH that it will gradually inﬂuence my THOUGHTS and
ACTIONS so that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.
Back of this formula is a law of Nature which no man has yet been able to explain.
It has bafﬂed the scientists of all ages. The psychologists have named this law
