Think and Grow Rich 208 – Sex, Mystery, And Transmutation

Hold onto your hats, folks – this post ushers in Chapter 11 of Napoleon Hill’s revised classic, Mindset Mastery. If we’re to be honest and adult, it’s one of the most favorite chapters of all, what with it being the one chapter that discusses the “mystery of sex transmutation”. Now that I have your attention, let’s dive right in.

Chapter 11 – The Mystery of Sex Transmutation

The Tenth Step Toward Riches

The meaning of the word “transmute” is, in simple language, “the changing, or transferring of one element, or form of energy, into another.”

The emotion of sex brings into being a state of mind. Because of ignorance on the subject, this state of mind is generally associated with the physical, and because of improper influences, to which most people have been subjected in acquiring knowledge of sex, things that are essentially physical have highly biased the mind.

Constructive Potential

The emotion of sex has behind it the possibility of three constructive potentialities, they are:

1. The perpetuation of mankind.
2. The maintenance of health, (as a therapeutic agent, it has no equal).
3. The transformation of mediocrity into genius through transmutation.

Sex transmutation is simple and easily explained. It means the switching of the mind from thoughts of physical expression, to thoughts of some other nature.

Sexual desire is the most powerful of human desires. When driven by this desire, men and women alike develop a keen imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and creative ability that remain unknown to them at other times. So strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that people freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it. People will put their entire work and personal lives on the line for it. When harnessed, and redirected along other lines, this motivating force maintains all of its attributes of keenness of imagination, courage, etc., which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other profession or calling, including, of course, the creation of wealth.

A Transmutation of Power

The transmutation of sex energy calls for the exercise of will-power, to be sure, but the reward is worth the effort. The desire for sexual expression is inborn and natural. The desire cannot, and should not, be submerged or eliminated. But it should be given an outlet through forms of expression which enrich the body, mind, and spirit of Man. If not given this form of outlet, through transmutation, it will seek outlets through purely physical channels.

A river may be dammed, and its water controlled for a time, but eventually, it will force an outlet. The same is true of the emotion of sex. It may be submerged and controlled for a time, but its very nature causes it to be always seeking a means of expression. If it is not transmuted into some creative effort it will find a less worthy outlet.

Fortunate, indeed, is the person who has discovered how to give sex emotion an outlet through some form of creative effort, for that person has, by that discovery, lifted him- or herself to the status of a genius.

Basic Power

All kidding aside, any adult can surely see the accuracy behind so much of what Napoleon Hill is saying here. When we think of the hold this one basic, instinctual power has over the entirety of the human race, it becomes easy to see how by capturing and molding it, we could achieve what under normal circumstances seems doubtful.

    Hi Sean , makes perfect senx to me ,I remember an old shearing mate telling me one morning after I had travelled half the night to visit my girl friend only to spend a few hours with her before having to drive all the way back at 4am to shear, when I stepped in the shed eyes hanging out he said ” Son that map of Tassy’ll move a man further than any dynamite can blow him “. If only I had redirected some of that drive and energy into wealth creation back then , my account balance would probably look much healthier than it did after 3 wives and a tribe of kids.
