The fear of Ill Health from Think and Grow Rich

#3 The fear of Ill Health

summarized from Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

“This fear may be traced to both physical & social heredity.”

“Closely associated in origin with the cause of fear of old age and death.”

“This is because it leads one closely to the border of “terrible worlds” of which nothing is really known…”

“…ill health is feared because of the suffering it causes and the fear and uncertainty of what may happen when death comes.”

“It has been shown most convincingly that the fear of disease, even where there is not the slightest cause of fear, often produces the physical symptoms of the disease feared.”

“Hypochondria (imaginary illness).”

“Powerful is the human mind.”

“It builds and destroys.”

“Disease sometimes begins in the form of a negative thought impulse.”

“Such an impulse can be passed from one mind to another through suggestion, or created by an individual in their own mind.”

“Doctors sometimes send patients into new climates for their health because a change of “mental attitude” is necessary.”

“The seed of fear of ill health lives in every human mind.”

“Worry, fear, discouragement in love and businsess affairs cause this seed to germinate and grow.”

Please take note the above summary was taken as is from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich.

Ok so that’s the fear of poverty, then it was the fear of criticism that means the fear of loss of love should be next.
