The following are highlights are from Think And Grow Rich Chapter 1, the section titled You Are The Master of Your Fate, The Captain of Your Soul:
-We are the Masters of our Fate, the Captains of our Souls, because we have the power to control our thoughts.
-The ether in which this little earth floats, in which we move and have our being, is a form of energy moving at an inconceivably high rate of vibration, and that the ether is filled with a form of universal power which ADAPTS itself to the nature of the thoughts we hold in our minds; and INFLUENCES us, in natural ways, to transmute our thoughts into their physical equivalent.
-This power makes no attempt to discriminate between destructive thoughts and constructive thoughts, that it will urge us to translate into physical reality thoughts of poverty, just as quickly as it will influence us to act upon thoughts of riches.
-Our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds, and, by means with which no man is familiar, these “magnets” attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.
-Before we can accumulate riches in great abundance, we must magnetize our minds with intense DESIRE for riches, that we must become money conscious until the DESIRE for money drives us to create definite plans for acquiring it.
It is interesting that Napoleon Hill echoes many of the same philosophies described in metaphysics, but with a wealth attraction slant. The ability to attract or repel wealth is a mental matter that resides within the mind of every individual. The key to attracting greater amounts of wealth is through tuning one’s mind to the appropriate frequency thereby making oneself receptive to wealth. Once properly attuned, individual thoughts may be transmuted to definite plans focused on the acquisition of wealth. When one is attuned to wealth they will begin to recognize the forces, people, and circumstances which will lead to greater accumulation of wealth as if they were placed there by the universe for that definite purpose.
