Posted on the 28 January 2019 by Sravankumar Sripadi @sravan4you

I'll be summarizing one of the greatest self-help books of all time Think and Grow Rich, this book is one of my top 5 book recommendations so make sure to read this and take notes. Why because in it is the combined knowledge about how to become successful from some of the greatest minds of the 20th century including John D Rockefellerwho was the richest man the world has ever seen, Andrew Carnegie the biggest steel tycoon of his times and second only to Rockefeller in terms of wealth. Henry ford the founder of Ford Motor Company, Thomas Edison the inventor of lightbulb and holder of over 2,000 patterns and over 500 such great minds the author Napoleon Hill spent nearly 30 years interviewing these great men to figure out what made them successful and the book is a distillation of those ideas. And I will compress the entire book in the knowledge from these 500 great men into one encompassing idea that will simplify the whole book for you.Five key points of Think and Grow Rich

Even though the title of the book is Thinking Grow Rich, the idea is applied to accomplish any goal that you desire now here's the all-encompassing idea to do great things whether it be to accumulate great riches or any other goal for that matter. We have control the power of our subconscious mind and that is what we will discuss going forward, now why do we need to do that? Well we all have two minds inside of us the conscious and the subconscious, however in terms of sheer power the subconscious mind is orders of magnitude more powerful than the conscious mind there is literally no comparison. If the size of the conscious mind is the size of a microwave oven the subconscious mind is the size of the Milky Way. It is extremely powerful and the computational resources it as are humongous millions of times more powerful than the conscious mind. So, in order to accomplish your big goals you need to control the power of your subconscious mind by programming it with the goal that you want. And how do we control the power of the subconscious mind and program it for? It is not easy to program the subconscious mind, but it is entirely possible. And this book is all about understanding precisely how to do that? So let's understand the basics of the subconscious mind, and then we will talk about the keys to program it for massive success firstly even though the subconscious mind is way more powerful than the conscious mind it is still being controlled by the conscious mind, our conscious mind is the master of our subconscious mind. The unconscious mind is like a garden while the conscious mind is the gardener. The conscious mind is sowing the seeds of part while the subconscious is working to bring those thoughts to fruition. Second of all we have to understand that our subconscious mind is always working and for most people it is working against them now you might be wondering why the subconscious mind would work against you? Well it is because of the thoughts and emotions that are dominating your existence every single moment every single day. If your thoughts are dominated by negativity, fear, poverty and failure well the subconscious mind is busy making those thoughts a reality for you and hence it is working against you. On the other hand if you are feeding your subconscious mind deliberately design thoughts and feelings of riches, success and positivity, well the subconscious mind gets busy making those thoughts a reality for you. Now the challenge is that if you do not actively plant deliberately chosen thoughts and emotions in there it will work on the thoughts it receives as a result of neglect. And unfortunately those are not usually positive uplifting thoughts, you are constantly being bombarded with negativity all around you. Thirdly the subconscious mind is objective it does not distinguish between positive or negative it does not distinguish between a penny or a million it will take whatever thoughts and emotions you think and feel and get busy making them a reality whether positive or negative. So now that we understand the subconscious mind a little better, how do we get about programming our subconscious mind for great success? How do we create that burning desire that literally turns on the power of the subconscious mind in our favour and makes us unstoppable?Well here are the five keys to do exactly that, first of all we must have a definite purpose, we must become very clear on what we want on the specific goal, we want the clear purpose or the end goal. The easier it is to get there only when we are clear about our goal. Can we program that goal into our subconscious mind? If you provide your subconscious mind with no clear purpose or goals, you will get no real power, it will be like a giant ship with immense power but without any destination to aim for. So what's the use of a ship without a clear destination a lot of people have these wake calls about maybe becoming rich or losing weight but those goals are so big that it's almost useless. You have to be very clear, you have to have a very clear goal a very clear picture, that it will help you to control the power of your subconscious mind because it allows you to focus on your effort and it gives you a clarity of direction clarity of making decisions.The second key to programming, your subconscious mind is to use the power of artists suggestion Suggestions are deliberately designed statements or commands you give to yourself, also known as affirmations. Once you know what you want, you must repeat that command to your subconscious mind over and over again, no end to it. There is no end to maintaining your garden and you have to keep on doing this you never stop doing it so you keep on repeating these affirmations to yourself these are the suggestions to yourself over and over again.The third key to programming, your subconscious mind is to use the power of emotions to direct your subconscious mind, now it is not enough to think about your calls and just repeat them, you must mix those thoughts of your calls with emotions, the emotions you want to feel when the goal will be accomplished. The subconscious mind only understands the language of emotions, and emotionless thoughts do not affect the subconscious mind that is a fact it does not understand the subject, just does not understand the language of logic or reason. So any language you use in order to program your subconscious mind has to involve emotions. You have to feel the feelings in order to be able to program your subconscious mind.The fourth key to programming, your subconscious mind is visualization. In order to program our subconscious mind we must see and feel the goal as if the goal is already accomplished that you already have what you desire. Ask yourself how would you act if you had already accomplished your goal? How would you feel? What would you do? What feelings would dominate your mind? The key to visualization is to actually be able to see and feel yourself as having already accomplished the call rather than thinking of it as a distant possibility. So if you have a goal losing weight by December 31st of this year visualize yourself on December 31st as having already accomplished that call. The fifth key to programming, your subconscious mind is persistence and repetition. So what is the price of being able to control the power of your subconscious mind? As Napoleon Hill says it is everlasting persistence and thoughts mix with emotions mix with faith endless repetition of that desire mixed with positive emotions and mixed with faith no matter what the circumstances no matter what you see externally in the world. We talked about the five keys to control the power of the subconscious mind that literally makes us unstoppable. so I hope you learn something new from this post.
