This post starts the next chapter in Napoleon Hill’s updated classic, Think and Grow Rich (which we’ve titled Mindset Mastery to reflect its power and modernisation). This next chapter begins a very exciting part of the book wherein we take on the possibilities of the mind and imagination. It’s very aptly titled,
“IMAGINATION – THE WORKSHOP OF THE MIND”
And it introduces us to the fifth step in creating wealth.
“The Fifth Step Toward Riches”
The imagination is literally the workshop wherein all the plans created by men and women are constructed. The impulse, the desire, is given shape, form, and action through the aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind.
It has been said that man can create anything he can imagine.
Of all the ages of civilization, this is the most favorable for the development of the imagination, because it is an age of rapid change. On every hand one may contact stimuli which develop the imagination.
Imagination Harnesses Power
Through the aid of his imaginative faculty, man has discovered, and harnessed, more of Nature’s forces during the past one hundred fifty years than during the entire history of the human race previous to that time. He has conquered the air so completely that birds are a poor match for him in flying. He has harnessed the air around him and made it serve as a means of instantaneous communication with any part of the world. He has analyzed and weighed the sun at a distance of millions of miles, and has determined, through the aid of imagination, the elements it consists of. He has discovered that his own brain is both a broadcasting and a receiving station for the vibration of thought, and he is beginning now to learn how to make practical use of this discovery. He has increased the speed of travel so that he is now able to at a speed of hundreds of miles an hour.
Man’s only limitation, within reason, lies in his development and use of his imagination. He has not yet reached the apex of development in the use of his imaginative faculty. He has merely discovered that he has an imagination, and has started to use it in a very elementary way.
As humans our only limitation is the limit we place on our own minds and imaginations. Sure, as Hill says, we may not have yet unlocked all the future potential of the human mind, but few of us have even utilised the potential we do have available to us. Unlock your mind and unlock your potential—and your financially free, fulfilling future!
