Andrew Carnegie shared with Napoleon Hill about using the power of the mind in it directing towards whatever ends he chooses.
Mr. Carnegie explains that "everyone brings over with him at birth the equivalent of two sealed envelopes, one of which is clearly labeled: The Riches you may enjoy if you take possession of your own mind and direct it to ends of your own choice. And the other is labeled: The Penalties you must pay if you neglect to take possession your mind and direct it.
Contents of the Envelop Labeled Riches: 1. Sound health. 2. Peace of mind. 3. A labor of love of your own choice. 4. Freedom from fear and worry. 5. A positive mental attitude. 6. Material riches of your own choice and quantity.
Contents of the Envelop Labeled Penalties: 1. Ill health. 2. Fear and worry. 3. Indecision and doubt. 4. Frustration and discouragement through out life. 5. Poverty and want. 6. And a whole flock of evils consisting of envy, greed, jealousy, anger, hatred and superstition.
1. Procure a neat pocket-sized notebook. 2. On page 1, write down a clear description of "What You Most Desire in Life". 3. On page 2, write down a clear statement of "What You Intend to Give in Return to Receive What You Most Desire in Life". 4. Memorize both statements. 5. Repeat a dozen times daily and ALWAYS end with the statement of Expression of Gratitude.
"O Divine Providence, I ask not for more riches but more Wisdom with which to make wiser use of the riches you gave me at birth, consisting in the power to control and direct my own mind to whatever ends I desire." ~ Napoleon Hill
