INTRODUCTION

In order to do great things whether it be to accumulate great riches or any other goal for that matter we have to enroll and harness the power of subconscious mind. We all have two minds inside us, the conscious and the subconscious. However the power of subconscious mind in orders of magnitude is more powerful than the conscious mind. Subconscious mind is extremely powerful and the computational resources it has humongous.

Think and grow rich book is on understanding precisely how to program our subconscious mind.

In this book Think and Grow Rich the author has given 13 principles for setting a correct mindset.

#1 DESIRE

Not hope, not a wish, a strong, burning desire.

  1. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you want
  2. Determine what you intend to give for the money you desire
  3. Establish an exact date when you intend to possess the money you desire
  4. Create a plan
  5. Write it down
  6. Read your written statement aloud

#2 FAITH

Thoughts which are mixed with any of the feelings of emotions, constitute a magnetic force which attracts, from the vibrations of the ether, other similar, or related thoughts.

#3 AUTO-SUGGESTION

It is the agency of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind.

#4 SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE

Knowledge is of two types

  1. General knowledge
  2. Specialized knowledge

It is important to develop specialized knowledge.

#5 IMAGINATION

It has been said that man can create anything which he can imagine.

#6 ORGANIZED PLANNING

  1. Create a mastermind group
  2. Decide what you can offer your mastermind team
  3. Meet with your team members twice a week
  4. Maintain harmony

#7 DECISION

Tell the world what you intend to do, but first commit to it.

#8 PERSISTENCE

Rich people persist. The more intense your desire, the more you’re likely to persist.

#9 POWER OF THE MASTER MIND

A mastermind is a coordination of knowledge and effort in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.

#10 THE MYSTERY OF SEX TRANSMUTATION

Men with sexual desire develop imagination, courage, willpower, persistence, and creativity ability.

#11 THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

Facts of Subconscious Mind

  • The conscious mind controls the subconscious mind
  • The subconscious mind is always working, mostly against people’s own thoughts and emotions.
  • The subconscious mind is objective

#12 THE BRAIN

The broadcasting principle is the factor through which you mix feeling, or emotion with your thoughts and pass them on to your subconscious mind.

#13 THE SIXTH SENSE

It cannot be described to a person who has not mastered the other principles of this philosophy, because such a person has now knowledge,  and no experience with which the 6th sense may be compared.

The above 13 principles in “Think and Grow Rich” are enough to set a proper mindset and achieve what you want. I would recommend reading this book to find out the hidden teachings given in every chapter and to implement it in real life for becoming a leader from a dreamer. This book helped me and it will help you too.
