but the reward is worth the effort. The desire for sexual expression is inborn and
natural. The desire cannot, and should not be submerged or eliminated. But it
should be given an outlet through forms of expression which enrich the body, 160 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH mind, and spirit of man. If not given this form of outlet, through transmutation,
it will seek outlets through purely physical channels.
A river may be dammed, and its water controlled for a time, but eventually, it
will force an outlet. The same is true of the emotion of sex. It may be submerged
and controlled for a time, but its very nature causes it to be ever seeking means
of expression. If it is not transmuted into some creative effort it will ﬁnd a less
Fortunate, indeed, is the person who has discovered how to give sex emotion an
outlet through some form of creative effort, for he has, by that discovery, lifted
himself to the status of a genius.
Scientiﬁc research has disclosed these signiﬁcant facts:

The research from which these astounding discoveries were made, went back
through the pages of biography and history for more than two thousand years.
Wherever there was evidence available in connection with the lives of men and
women of great achievement, it indicated most convincingly that they possessed
highly developed sex natures.
The emotion of sex is an “irresistible force, against which there can be no such

gifted with a super power for action. Understand this truth, and you will catch the
signiﬁcance of the statement that sex transmutation will lift one to the status of
The emotion of sex contains the secret of creative ability. Destroy the sex glands,
whether in man or beast, and you have removed the major source of action. For
proof of this, observe what happens to any animal after it has been castrated. A
bull becomes as docile as a cow after it has been altered sexually. Sex alteration
takes out of the male, whether man or beast, all the FIGHT that was in him. Sex
alteration of the female has the same effect. 161 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH THE TEN MIND STIMULI
The human mind responds to stimuli, through which it may be “keyed up” to high
rates of vibration, known as enthusiasm, creative imagination, intense desire, etc.
The stimuli to which the mind responds most freely are:1. The desire for sex expression
3. A burning desire for fame, power, or ﬁnancial gain, MONEY
