7/9/14 – Weekly Words of Wealth – Self confidence formula
Monday, I sent you an audio that included Napoleon Hill’s self confidence formula and promised to send it to you in writing. It is a powerful tool to help you remember who you really are and just how capable you are.
This is from his book, Think and Grow Rich.
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.
Second- I realize that the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality; therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for 30 minutes daily upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.
Third- I know that through the principle of autosuggestion any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it; therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.
Fourth- I have clearly written down a description of my CHIEF DEFINITE AIM in life, and I will never stop trying until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.
Fifth- I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless build upon truth and justice; therefore, I will engage in no transaction that does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to sue 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 my because I will believe in them and in myself.
Sixth- 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.
I would love to hear how you use it and the difference it makes for you. Post your comments below or on my Facebook page.
Here’s to a confident, successful you!
