The Law Of Success In Sixteen Lessons

Napoleon Hill wrote The Law Of Success In Sixteen Lessons which was later compressed into what most know as Think and Grow Rich.
The Law Of Success Lesson 1 is Mastermind and after reading but a portion of it I immediately felt the urge to share what it with you because, well, I love you.

And I can only experience true prosperity by sincerly wanting you to be equally prosperous.

So ja, before I start being in need of something to dry my eyes with, here’s a bit of what I’ve read from Napoleon’s The Law Of Success so far, enjoy.

“You may not like the work in which you are now engaged.

There are two ways of getting out of that work.

One way is to take but little interest in what you are doing, aiming merely to do enough with which to “get by.”

Very soon you will find a way out, because the demand for your services will cease.

The other and better way is by making yourself so useful and efficient in what you are now doing that you will attract the favourable attention of those who have power to promote you into more responsible work that is more to your liking.”

Food for thought.

What Is Needed Here Is A Change Of Mindset

Here I go again having another “accident” on the road with me driving into the back bumper of a car that went into the two way I was driving on.

The driver of the other car upon reaching the end of his t-junction and deciding to turn left into the road I had priority over without checking if it was okay to do so, ended up with my fiat palio colliding with his opel corsa in the early hours of a Friday morning.

We in South African drive on the left hand side of the road going up, so the idiot would have to turn left if he wanted to go up the road if he were coming from a vertical road that joins on to mine.

The “accident” happend at 5:55am 5 June 2009 – work begins at 7am for the majority of us so being on the road an hour early is a smart way to beat traffic or having a collision with a driver who doesn’t know how to drive – on my way to picking up a colleague before heading up to work.

Honestly I’m more dissapointed with how I handled the situation than anything else, but I got what wanted I needed from him to go and report the incident to the police, even if he refused to accompany me to the station because he is going to work….and like I WASN’T?!

Just thinking about it, about him makes me angry so much that I want these thoughts of anger to channel to wherever he is and do bad things on him.

Ended up not going to work and sorting myself out with the paperwork at the police station, running out of airtime on my phone while calling the insurance and looking for spares around my local spares shops on a reserve tank.

All this while in the back of my mind I kept on hearing: “There are no accidents.” and “Don’t be tricked into believing that all of this is real. This is all make-believe.”

Something else came to mind, of how I should let him “get away” with this inconvience he has caused me, when, in the metaphysical approach to this, it is the inconvience I have caused for myself, to myself.

The latter is the Truth my pride has a hard time dealing with and accepting.

That there are really no accidents in life, but situations that arise so to be in harmony with our vibration prior the occurence of the accident – which in my case was a vibration of staying home & not going to work, and resting without having to bear the strain of dealing with the boredom of work for yet another day. Accompanied with how horrible it feels to deny myself a plan towards my goals due to procrastination and how I am doomed to experience this forever if I don’t take action.

This kind of “Truth Talk” is something I want to invite you into practising and analyzing and understanding, to hopefully one day accept, that in reality everything that happens is of our own creation, of our own choosing.

As to the way these events happen, I would agree, might not have been the way we might have wanted to happen, but they accomplish the same result that we resonate with.

The negativity we manifest in our lives comes from the negativity we hold inside of us.

The thing of holding on to the negativity in the present, based on our past results and experiences will only lead to similar resuls and experiences in the future.

We must then practise letting go at the images of ourselves, that is Our Self Image, which do not define who we are and who we want to be – definitions which we must first write out, declare and create before we take part in any other step succeding it – and begin from now, anew & fresh, “progessively working towards a worthy ideal.”

That is why the present is such a gift. Because you can start in this very moment of Now to change your reality by first changing your thinking.

This is because thoughts lead to experience.

The speed of the effect (experience) is determined by the consistency and the power (intensity of the emotion) behind the cause (thought).

For an in depth understanding of this read a book, which can also be bought on, by Joe Vitale title “The Attrator Factor” which is an updated version of his “Spiritual Marketing” where he talks about “finding the escalator to life.”

I am deeply thankful for the Spirit of All That Is for making this update possible and working through me for Thy will to be done.

Here’s to your prosperity,

I Want It, Therefore I Can Never Have It

Life is such a beautiful thing, especially when you expect it to be.

I wanted my next update to allow me to stand naked before you.

Relax I didn’t post a nude picture of myself within this update, but what I meant is that I choose to stand naked before you today so that you can feel my trust in myself and the universe.

Actually I am doing this hoping that you will do the same with yourself also, do this so to allow yourself the chance to see yourself for What and Who you truly are…beautiful.

This journey of self consciousness and awareness through the continual study of the mind and the laws that govern all that is energy has brought me into a space where I am equipped with the necessary tools to become a success – my definition of success is having the bank balance to live life on my own terms – yet my current experience is a complete contrast to what I envision in my mind.

But you know what, honestly, I keep changing my mind so much that it is no surprise that I have not manifested the thing that I wanted because I have so many counter/ like images, wants, goals and desires that I allow to harbour in my mind, that way the “order” never reaches me.

Or if it is, the waiter has to keep on going back to the kitchen to change it.

I hear people, myself included, saying, “I want to be rich, I want to be rich, I want to be rich, I want to be rich,” “I want to have an internet business,” or “I want to get a better paying job,” my favourite “Recession (this), recession (that),” or “The debts that I have are killing me!” this one is common amongst the site I scan “How can I use the law of attraction that they talked about in The Secret to make money,” these ones are from my spam emails “Riches,” “Unemployment,” “Lack of money,” “Business is bad,” here’s one by and from myself and family “I am sick, I am sick, I’m so sick,” “I’m tired, so weak,” aka lack and limitation which is a vibration of fear that is being emitted with every word my thinking has cooked which will normally be followed by its respective deed or act.

The law of attraction is a sub-law to the law of vibration which states that one thing will attract to it anything and everything that is in harmonious vibration to it.

And since E = mc2, that is everything is energy so that includes you, and what we know about energy is that it vibrates – it is by law that you attract to you everything, anything that is in harmonious vibration with you.

So right now you and I are vibrating at rate emitted by every cell in our body, causing us to attract to us things that vibrate in the same way – the thing is it’s our mind that determines how we vibrate, particularly the subconscious mind, at the powerful level this is due to the images that keep popping in our minds.

It what we think about that controls the outcome of our lives because the emotions that sometimes originate from or about what we are thinking that combine into a powerful frequency that execute a command to the Universe, moulding it into providing the feedback – or the thing – that, by law, returns to the source.

In short, we receive and become what we think about.

Keeping in mind, excuse the pun, that the mind thinks in picture – it doesn’t “hear” whether you like it or not or whether you hate it or not – it gives back to you the respective feeling and emotion that you associate with the picture you “see” in your mind.

The greater or the more intense the feeling is, the faster the feedback, or the manifestation, from the Universe.

Hence the line they kept saying to that quarterback in Any Given Sunday: “You have to see it, before you do it.”

What I am saying here is that you have to “see” it and FEEL it for quicker results, that is why this statement of fact holds true, “You Receive What You Fear” by author Neale D. Walsch.

So here I am, the good, decent, hard working guy that I am “wanting.”

I am in want.

I am in a vibration of wanting to get rich.

Wanting to get rich on the internet.

Wanting to get rich in business.

Wanting to get rich in all aspect of my life, because riches can also mean excellent health, good social group, loving family and confidence in self.

But what vibration am I in?


And since the Universe or Life or God or Allah or Buddha or You – same thing – gives you back what you manifest from your thoughts and feelings, what do you get?

The experience of “want.”

Cause and effect.

There is a seminar that came to me in parts which was conducted by a mentor and facebook, friend that in David Schirmer, and in one of them he said, “…picture yourself on a golf course about to tee off, and over in the far distance you see a sand bunker, and you immediately say to yourself, “I don’t want the ball to go in the sand.” What picture goes in the mind when you say that? THE BALL GOING IN THE SAND.

Then there is no wonder why life is as it is, because we as SPIRITUAL BEINGS LIVING IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD, let me say that again for emphasis: WE ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS LIVING IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD, create our lives through the thoughts we have and choose to fill our minds.

And just because you decide at a conscious level that you want to change the results and experience something else, doesn’t mean you have changed it at a subconscious level – the level that makes you think, say and do the things you do automatically, which by the way is the part that governs the things you have and experience in your life.

So “breaking” the protective layer upon layer that has been developing and thickening with every passing moment from the day you were born till now, replacing the images – since the mind “thinks” in pictures and not words, and it is these images that keep on manifesting as your life experience – with the images you would like to have, do or become is the key to success.

The key to your success.

The key to my success.

And this might take a day to do, a week, a month, a year, a decade, half a century, a century or millennia.

It all depends on how much time do you want to spend a day, maybe even starting today, filling your mind with the images, thoughts, feelings and emotions that are in a harmony with the good that you deserve and, not want but rather, choose to experience.

Keeping in mind that one hour is just one twenty fourth of a day.

How Bad Do You Want It?

It’s been two years since I began my journey to self awareness and I still haven’t gotten all the parts right – see this as motivation, do that and you’re already have way in.

To your success and prosperity,
