Think and Grow Rich – Chapter 14
The Sixth Sense -The Door to the Temple of Wisdom
The Thirteenth Step Towards Riches

“I knew, of course, that all men have become what they are because of their DOMINATING THOUGHTS AND DESIRES. I knew that every deeply seated desire has the effect of causing one to seek outward expression through which that desire may be transmuted into reality.

I knew that SELF-SUGGESTION is a powerful factor in building character, that it is, in fact, the SOLE PRINCIPLE through which character is built.” ~ Napoleon Hill, T&GR Chapter 14

My main takeaway from this chapter is that we have to master the other 12 principles before we can effectively use this one. But just like all of the others, it appears that this one can be helped along by practicing our self-talk or auto-suggestion.

It is truly amazing to me that after having read this book multiple times, I never realized how important self-talk is to thinking and growing rich. I just thought that if I practiced positive thinking, that was enough to change my thinking. I didn’t realize that I could program my subconscious mind by voluntarily planting good seeds in it. I didn’t realize that I could change the way I think by consistently telling myself what to think. And even when I started to understand that, I didn’t realize that I needed to tell myself what to think out loud, with emotion.

I really believe that I could have read this book another 100 times, and I still would not ‘get it’ without participating in the Mentoring for Free Mastermind Group and regularly talking with my wise and seemingly self-less personal Mentor Brian Redding. He has taught me quite a bit in a short amount of time and is always willing to roll up his sleeves and get in the trenches with me.

There are a lot of other mentors that have really enlightened me here too. Ken Klemm makes me say ‘Wow’ almost every time he opens his mouth. I have pretty much stolen David Haines self-talk word for word, with a small assist from Roger Boisjoli about deserving success. Michael and Darlene Moore’s will to overcome adversity never fails to inspire me, and although I am soon to be 54 years old, I have decided I want to be just like that 7 year old Winner, Dalton Moore, when I grow up. Then there is Bev Here, I mean Bev Bojarski whose Facebook postings I swipe on a daily basis. People love the stuff I steal from her! I am inspired by Mr. Lawrence Bergfeld, who decided some time ago not to let the opinions of others become his reality and chose instead to become a strong leader who everyday releases positive energy into the ether. Tuula Rands can pack more punch in ten words than I can in a hundred, I love her lesson plans. Winston and Josephine Brice, talk about your power couple, words fail me here. Josephine did take away any excuse I had about not being able to do a lesson plan. And no discussion of lesson plans is complete without mentioning Russ Aker. I could go on and on really, the wisdom of Ernest Tucker and Bob Shoaf, Carolyn Trahan’s honesty and inquisitiveness, Anthony Mitchell’s passion, Marsha, Ben, Calvin, Willeena, and the list goes on.

Unlike Napoleon Hill’s councilors, mine are not imaginary. And neither are they famous the world over…yet. But they do possess many of the traits of character that Hill wanted to imitate, and so do I. Also unlike Hill’s council table, I do not dominate my council table. That honor falls to Michael Dlouhy. And maybe dominate is too strong a word. Michael leads the council. He doesn’t lead it by dazzling us with his brilliance, of which he has plenty, but by drawing out the brilliance that is already in all of us and encouraging us to be more today than we were yesterday. He doesn’t ask us to believe in him, like a lot of the other so-called gurus, but rather to believe in ourselves, in our own thinking, in our own ability, and in each other.

To me the biggest testament to Mentoring for Free is the Mentors that are being created. Michael can take off on a well earned vacation and there are a number of people who can step in to keep the ship afloat and MFF doesn’t miss a beat. Not only can I go to Michael or Brian with problems or questions, I’ve gotten good advice from a number of the leaders here. David Haines has carved time out of his schedule to help me with technical issues. Nobody ever asks for anything in return. People helping people and paying it forward is really what Mentoring For Free is all about.

And these people, this Mastermind group, all of them, are helping me to master the other 12 principles of Think and Grow Rich. I am not there yet, I might have to go through the cleanse another 4 or 5 times before I can tune into that Sixth Sense at will. So I will continue to glean nuggets of wisdom from my council here that I never seem to get from reading the book on my own. Thank God for Michael and Linda Dlouhy and this Mastermind Group. Thank God for all of the Mentors with Servant Hearts that have been created here. And to my council, I thank you all for making a positive difference in my life. See you on the calls.

Peace & Prosperity,
Reggie Liggins
