Mindset Mastery 52 – Working The 6 Step Plan

Mindset Mastery eBookNapoleon Hill’s 6 steps are an excellent start to developing the kind of burning desire you need in order to attract wealth. But there are a few key points you should take note of as you put this plan into action, as described by Hill below.

Follow Instructions Closely

“It’s important that you follow the instructions laid out in these six steps. It is especially important that you follow the instructions in number six. You might complain that it is impossible for you to “see yourself in possession of money” before you actually have it. This is where that burning desire will come to your aid. If you truly desire money so much so that your desire becomes an obsession, you will have no difficulty convincing yourself that you will acquire it. The object is to want money, and to become so determined to have it that you convince yourself you will have it.

Developing Financial Consciousness

Financial ConsciousnessOnly those who become “money conscious” ever accumulate great wealth. “Money consciousness” means that the mind has become so thoroughly saturated with the desire for money, that that person can already see their self in possession of it.

To the uninitiated, those who are not very familiar with the working principles of the human mind, these instructions may appear impractical, maybe even a bit silly. It may be helpful, for anyone who fails to see the soundness of the six steps, to know that the information used to formulate them was passed to the author by the famous steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, one of the most well known “Captains of Industry”; Carnegie began as an ordinary laborer in the steel mills, but managed, despite his humble beginnings, to use these principles to yield him a fortune of well over one hundred million dollars (much of which, incidentally, he gifted across the world to fund libraries, schools, and Universities).

Scrutinizing The Deal

Furthermore, it may be helpful to know that the six steps recommended here were carefully scrutinized by the late Thomas A. Edison, who placed his stamp of approval on them as being, not only the essential steps for accumulating money, but necessary in order to attain any definite goal.”

If you are one who is in doubt of the 6 steps you should take this to heart—this is a plan that has the support of two of the wealthiest men of Hill’s time, of history in fact; it is also a plan that embraces some of the tenets (money consciousness in particular) of the most successful wealth programs out there today.

    Hi Sean,
    I really believe you can’t bargain with success. There is a price to be paid for everything you desire (and even some things you don’t want) and you have to be willing to pay the price.
    There are no shortcuts and no easy way out. The shortest way to success is to find a mentor and emulate his every move. Napoleon Hill was very forthright with his 6 step plan for achieving financial wealth. He’s given us every chance to create our own financial destiny.
    Now, it’s just a matter of following his plan closely and checking off each step. 🙂

  2. I agree with Jazz that “there is a price to be paid for everything you desire”. It is always a give and take. The price you have to pay might be time, energy, or money – but if you are really determined to achieve your goal and it is most important to you, then you will make it happen.

    The 6 steps are a really good guideline, and I have the feeling that modern (brain) research will show us soon WHY they work. We already know by experience that they work.

    • Hi Renee,

      I think the reason the ‘6 Step Plan for Wealth’ works is because your mind can’t distinguish between reality and fantasy. So, if you can convince your mind that you already possess the thing you desire; it can’t help but find a way to bring it into your life.

      You just have to believe with every fiber of your being that it’s real. There is no room for doubt. Make your mind believe and you will have it in your life.

  3. Andrew Carnegie at his peak was said to have $300 billion dollars in 2010 $ terms making him much richer than Bill Gates. My understanding is that he passed to Napoleon this concept of seeing himself with the money he wants before he got it. In my words:-
    I am money conscious and I can see myself with it and I am convinced that I will have it.

  4. Hi Sean,
    The 6 steps here are for building financial consciousness. That is so interesting and I’m not sure if this has been a realization on my part before this time and although I have read the T&GR book by Napoleon Hill that carries this story.

    The 6 steps have the seal of approval by these two most wealthiest people of the time Andrew Carnegie and Thomas Edison. I’m certainly not going to try to reinvent the wheel by doing it a different way to this proven way by these two famous men.

    Thank-you Sean, your Mindset Mastery book is showing true value here.

    • Hi Jill,

      I love the six step plan and I use it. I really think you should pick something simple and write out your six step plan. Then follow Napoleon Hill’s instructions on how to use it.

      I think you’ll be successful. This process helps to convince your mind that what you’re saying is already a reality. So, your subconscious finds a way to manifest it into your life.
