Napoleon Hill's 6 steps to Riches
Hi there... I really hope someone can help me on this...
Reading Napoleon Hill's classic book has totally changed my life and I am moving towards my dreams!!
But I have a question which I hope fellow members on this site may be able to help....
For those of you who are not aware of his 6 steps to turning desire into reality... is...
Fix in your mind an exact picture of what you desire. It’s not sufficient merely to say, for example, “I want plenty of money.” Be definite as to the amount. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the thing you desire. There’s no such reality as something for nothing. Establish a definite date by which you intend to possess the desired thing. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you feel entirely ready or not to put this plan into action. Write out a clear, concise statement of your responses to the preceding four steps. Read your written statement aloud twice daily. Once after arising in the morning and once just before retiring at night. As you read, see and feel and believe yourself already in possession of whatever your goal happens to be.
Even though I am aware that this method works like magic on your definite purpose (dominant goal/desire)... what if I have more than one goal... ??? Do I keep this method for my definate major purpose and then have a seperate list of goals I intend to achieve with deadlines etc...?? Because this 6 steps is mean't to be really absorbed into your subconsious mind, so you need to recite it every morning and night. visualise, etc etc..... so with many goals, it can get alot of work... as you can imagine...
How does everyone else think you should set your goals around the 6 steps to riches Napoleon Hill states??
I look forward to your replies!!

Yea, I've often wondered about this myself.
There seem to be two schools of thought about LoA. Hill supports the idea of consistent, focused attention on one's goal. At one stage he refers to it as a "white hot desire" or something of the sort.
Others, though, say that detachment is the key. That is, send your intentions out to the "universe" then become detached from the outcome, as if whether or not you'll get your request doesn't really matter one way or the other.
Thing is, one can't have it both ways. Either you're focused on your desires, or you're not.
Curious to what others might say.

A high state of desire will not inherently restrict the creative flow of manifestation. It is only when fear, anxiety, and worry enter in that this is the case. This is what is meant by non-attatchment. In fact, instead of calling it attatchment, lets just refer to it as your Degree of Allowance. There is the desire factor and the belief factor and they, together, cause an increase in the magnitude of attracting power. If you believe purely enough, it can offset the desire factor a great deal (i.e. you may not need as much). Likewise, a high desire factor can offset a weaker belief factor if it is high enough. But if you are feeling dread, anxiety, worry, fear, or any of the other names we have for the negative emotions we feel, you are NOT allowing. You are restricting the creative flow.
The ideal components for thought manifestation are: Intent, Desire, and Belief. Desire is born from the contrast you encounter in your reality (automatically), intent is when that desire becomes focussed, and belief is the allowing of that desire through expectation. How you feel is an indicator of whether you are creating what you want, or whether you are creating what you don't want.

I think he does that because when you say something specific, you can concentrate on it more and it becomes more clear. So you visualize it better. But I definitely think "intending" or "attracting" is all about the bigger picture and feelings.

I have different goals with different deadlines...
$2000/week income from my job by August 1st, 2008
$10,000/month passive income by the time I'm 30
$100,000/month passive income by the time I'm 40
$1,000,000/month passive income by the time I'm 50
I'm not sure how to go about using the six steps on all of these at once... I decided to focus on the first two, but I don't know how to go about focusing on both of those at once. The best I can figure is to read the first aloud when I wake up and the second aloud before I go to sleep.
Does anyone have any other ideas?

Joy, you got some brilliant income goals... foocus on each milestone one at a time
I was reading brian Tracy's goal setting techniques... he uses the term definiteness of purpose... what he says is... make a list on 10 goals you want to achieve within the next 12 months... then... circle the one that if you achieved it, will have the most impact on you... that is your major definite purpose... so, you use Napoleon Hills 6 steps on that goal.. but you also keep an eye and visualise your other 9 goals.. but most emphasis is on the main one you circle...
Hope that helps now...
