Napoleon 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
Only 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.
