Think And Grow Rich(er) + Why Napoleon Hill Never Looked Hard Enough

Some of history’s greatest men and women have made billions of dollars by using the power of auto-suggestion.

Are you doing it yet?

Think and Grow Rich has sold over 70 million copies worldwide. It’s spawned books  such as ‘The Secret’ which has sold over 19 million copies.

If you’ve never read the books you are missing out on the chance to become hugely successful beyond your wildest dreams.

But is the secret within these books only the tip of the iceberg?

What is the secret?

Henry Ford; Theodore Roosevelt; Andrew Carnegie; Charles M. Schwab; Woodrow Wilson; John D. Rockefeller; Thomas Edison; Alexander Graham Bell.

The subconscious mind, the chemical laboratory in which all thought impulses are combined, and made ready for translation into physical reality – Napoleon Hill.

All these men knew the secret: that you can turn your desires into physical reality by thinking about them. If you believe something will come true, it will.

These days auto-suggestion is common knowledge. There’s dozens of books been written about it. Even though ‘The Secret’ talks about the universe giving you anything you ask for, it’s just a fruitcake version of turning your desires into reality by thinking about them.

But something is missing

Strange and imponderable is the power of the human mind! We do not understand the method by which it uses every circumstance, every individual, every physical thing within its reach, as a means of transmuting DESIRE into its physical counterpart. Perhaps science will uncover this secret – Napoleon Hill.

When I started my online adventures last year I gave myself this very talk. I told myself I would build a successful online business and I’d be living in a tropical country. It’s all I thought about. Every day.

And because I could remember my dreams I noticed something very strange. I would have dreams about building an online business and living in a foreign country. I had them regularly. Different business ideas and strange far off lands each time, but my desires were manifesting in my dreams.

One year later I’m living in a tropical country and earning a living online.

When Napoleon Hill talks about science one day uncovering why auto-suggestion works, I have a good idea why. It’s because you go to sleep and live out your dreams as if they were real. That’s powerful stuff.

If you tell yourself something enough times you will eventually dream about it.

Anyone who lucid dreams knows this is true. You can (sometimes) choose what you dream about by giving yourself auto-suggestions before you go to sleep.

Napoleon Hill never looked hard enough

This changed world requires practical dreamers who can, and will put their dreams into action. The practical dreamers have always been, and always will be the pattern-makers of civilization – Napoleon Hill

He never discovered the power of lucid dreaming.

Not only can you choose what you dream about, but you can actually wake up inside your dreams and live out your desires in real-time with complete conscious awareness.

It’s like auto-suggestion on steroids.

You don’t just tell yourself something will come true. It does come true in a lucid dream. You can live it, watch it, smell it, and even manipulate it. Then you wake up with a huge smile on your face and can work on achieving it in reality.

Once you’ve already lived your dreams you have a huge motivation to follow it through. Much more motivation than if you just told yourself it would come true. Much more.

What’s next?

Decide what you want to achieve; who you want to be; where you want life’s path to lead you…

Now live it out in your lucid dreams.

It’s obvious that auto-suggestion works. There’s too many people claim it to be the reason for their success to suggest otherwise.

But what do you think about living out your hopes and desires in lucid dreams? Let me know in the comments below…

    Hey Jamie,
    Could you imagine receiving the royalties of selling over 70 million books? That would be awesome.

    I learned a lot about the power of the sub-conscious mind from Dr.Robert Anthony. He describes it like this. The Conscious mind is limited in what it can do, where as the subconscious mind is unlimited.

    Dr Anthony calls the conscious mind “The Captain” and the subconscious mind “the crew.” Basically the conscious you gets to tell the subconscious “you” exactly what you want it to do.

    The hardest part is letting go, trust, and allowing it to happen. That’s where 99% of the people sabotage their results.

      Hey Justin,

      That’s very true about the subconscious. It’s definitely the ship. I think that’s the great thing about lucid dreams because it let’s you steer the ship a little.

      I know it’s not you that’s fully in charge, but every time you manipulate the dream you are basically training yourself to make changes to the subconscious mind. That’s powerful stuff.

      I actually had a good conversation with people about this yesterday. LOTS of people thought all the stuff about aut0-suggestion and attraction was just some marketing gimmick to sell some books and pick up those royalties. I thought people were thinking about it the wrong way.

      People think they can imagine themselves driving a Ferrari and it won’t come true. I said something like:

      If you don’t think it will come true, it won’t.
      If you think it will come true, you have a much better chance of making it come true.

      I think books like ‘The Secret’ and obviously now ‘Think and Grow Rich’ just scare people away because they automatically assume it’s cuckoo. Once people realize your beliefs are who you are, they will definitely understand. I want to talk about this some more in the coming months, because I think it’s vital.

      How can someone expect to become a lucid dreamer if they aren’t convinced it will happen. That’s the whole point.

    hello, yeah it is absolutely true!
    when i started reading think and grow rich a few years ago i quickly developped an obcession causing me to read it every single day and thinking about it all the time.. now in my dream it is the same i know profound truth on how the mind works. When i wake up, i hear my parents downstairs speaking, but im in a kind of truth trance, i hear their unconcious and see how they are influenced by it.. they are in a kind of trance too like a daily hypnotic trance.
    day after day i know more about it, but a little after the wake up the superconsciousness vanish.. as soon as i think of my self and go back to the daily thought! it takes time for the unconscious to reaveal the entire subject because he speaks of himself i guess.
    would you start a master mind ?

      Hey Remy,

      What you described sounds really interesting. I’m glad you enjoy the book too. I think sometimes the classics are excellent.

      I’m a little too busy to start a MM right now, but it’s definitely something I’d look at in the future.

    Hi Jamie!

    What you share in this article is exactly a tought I’ve been entertaining for a long time ago but haven’t done anything to go deeper.

    I bought your book LDOC monts ago but hadn’t read it. But last week something extraordinary happened: I experienced a spontaneous lucid dream (my first one) and was an ashtounding experience that I definitely want to repeat just for fun, but mostly for the possibilites I’m beginning to visualise. Needless to say The first thing I did when I woke up was to grab my copy of your book and read it from cover to cover.

    I just finished reading LDOC for the second time (only this time actually studying it) about half an hour ago and I’m eager to put in practice your technique.

    Thank you for your guide and advice and please include me in your mailing list.
