Think and Grow Rich 210 – Mental Stimulation

Napoleon Hill does not take on this chapter about sex just for the fun of it – there is real life-science behind it that can be applied to success and wealth. It may help you to take it a little more seriously to see just how this topic fits in with the other driving forces of life.

The Ten Mind Stimuli

The human mind responds to stimuli, through which it may be “keyed up” to high energies known as enthusiasm, creative imagination, intense desire, etc. The stimuli to which the mind responds most freely are:

1. The desire for sexual expression
2. Love
3. A burning desire for fame, power, or financial gain, money
4. Music
5. Friendship between either those of the same sex or those of the opposite sex
6. A Master Mind alliance based upon the harmony of two or more people who ally themselves for spiritual or temporal advancement.
7. Mutual suffering, such as that experienced by people who are persecuted.
8. Auto-suggestion
9. Fear
10. Narcotics and alcohol

The desire for sexual expression is at the top of the list of stimuli, which most effectively “step-up” the vibrations of the mind and start the “wheels” of physical action. Eight of these stimuli are natural and constructive. Two are destructive. The list is presented here for the purpose of enabling you to make a comparative study of the major sources of mind stimulation. From this study, it will be readily seen that the emotion of sex is, by great odds, the most intense and powerful of all mind stimuli.

Foundations Of Proof

This comparison is necessary as a foundation for proof of the statement that transmutation of sex energy may lift one to the status of a genius. Let’s find out what constitutes a genius.

An old joke says that a genius is a man who “wears long hair, eats queer food, lives alone, and serves as a target for the joke makers.” That ignorant analysis is not so far off from what many people have to say about geniuses today, unfortunately. A better definition of a genius is, “a man who has discovered how to increase the wavelengths of thought to the point where he can freely communicate with sources of knowledge not available through the ordinary rate of thought.”

Questions Worth Considering

The person who thinks will want to ask some questions concerning this definition of genius. The first question will be, “How can one communicate with sources of knowledge that are not available through the ordinary rate of thought?”

The next question will be, “Are there known sources of knowledge which are available only to geniuses, and if so, what are these sources, and exactly how can they be reached?”

Questions For Success

These questions, and many others, will of course be answered by Napoleon Hill in upcoming Mindset Mastery posts (or in the book if you read ahead!), but just as food for thought, doesn’t it intrigue you to see the possibilities that await when you start to consider the whole of your human being and all the potential you might reach just by utilizing that which nature gave to you?

  1. Hello Sean,

    I guess that is why I like to listen to Meditation while I am going to sleep, and have one ear piece playing over and over with three types of Meditation that helps me to re-connect with what I am doing, and why I am chasing my dream and our goal.
    Good to know that Mental Stimulation has a part to play in think and grow rich.

  2. Hi Sean,

    chapter 11 was a complete new world to me. In my reality, sex was something to reproduce human race and to have fun. That it is possible to transmute sexual energy in something else is an amazing thought in itself.

    Thanks for sharing your powerful insights.

    Take care & Happy New Year
