Although our intuition, mind’s eye, and our personal senses are most of the time fairly reliable, Napoleon Hill believed that there was only one truly infallible source for the reliable accumulation of power.
One Which Does Not Err
The other two major sources from which the knowledge, necessary for the accumulation of power, can be obtained are no more reliable than the five senses of man. The senses are not always reliable. Infinite Intelligence does not err.
In subsequent chapters, the methods by which Infinite Intelligence can be most readily contacted will be thoroughly described.
This is not a course on religion. No fundamental principle described in this book should be interpreted as being intended to interfere either directly, or indirectly, with any person’s religious belief or habits, or the lack thereof. This book has been confined, exclusively, to instructing the reader how to transmute the definite purpose of desire for money into its monetary equivalent.
Read, think, and meditate as you read. Soon, the entire subject will unfold, and you will see it in perspective. You are now seeing only the detail of the individual chapters.
To Woo And to Win
Money is as shy and elusive as the “old time” maiden. It must be wooed and won by methods not unlike those used by a determined lover, in pursuit of the girl of his choice. And, coincidentally, the power used in the “wooing” of money is not much different from that used in wooing a maiden. That power, when successfully used in the pursuit of money, must be mixed with faith. It must be mixed with desire. It must be mixed with persistence. It must be applied through a plan, and that plan must be set into action.
When money comes in large quantities, what you might call “big money,” it flows to the one who accumulates it, as easily as water flows down hill. There exists a great unseen stream of power, which can be compared to a river, with the exception that one side flows in one direction, carrying all who get into that side of the stream, onward and upward to wealth—and the other side flows in the opposite direction, carrying everyone unfortunate enough to get into it (and not able to extricate themselves from it), downward to misery and poverty.
To woo and to win is in essence to Think And Grow Rich.
Recognizing The Stream
Every person who has accumulated great wealth has recognized the existence of this stream of life. It consists of a person’s thinking process. The positive emotions of thought form the side of the stream which carries people to fortune. The negative emotions form the side which carries people down to poverty, or keeps them in financial straights.
When you say it that way, just as Napoleon Hill did here in this last paragraph, it all seems so simple; and really, it is. A positive mindset of success begets success. The opposite, exactly what you would think would spring from something so situated.
