Has anybody rattled your cage lately? You keep in mind the expression!
And you’ve certainly become aware of ‘Grow and think Rich,’ the successful classic composed by Napoleon Hill back in 1928. It’s sold countless copies over the years and is a perennial favorite that’s highly recommended to each succeeding crop of prospective entrepreneurs, it’s hardly made the kind of impact on the world a book of this nature is capable of making.
It sort of makes you wonder, do we believe, or do not we?
That’s a concern worth thinking about!
Somewhere back in the 1600s, French thinker Rene Descartes made his well-known observation: Cogito, ergo sum I think, therefore I am.
Now, think about it!
Does that mean that if we don’t think, we aren’t?
At its depth, the declaration holds an extensive truth of its own.
On its surface area, a lot of us only think we are!
In this sense, the majority of people really aren’t. What we call society, isn’t! It’s all envisioned, all a sham. It looks real due to the fact that nearly everyone participates, but at its core, it’s no more than a conditioned impression. The emperor actually has no clothing!
A conditioned idea is not thinking! If we think in this way, that is, reacted to conditioning, we will most certainly grow poor! It’s why almost everybody is bad or in debt, which totals up to the same thing!
Most of what we do actually isn’t based upon thought but on conditioning and emotions!
Of course, emotions do have a life of their own. It can quickly be said, I feel, for that reason I am or I harm, for that reason I am. And you may recognize the latter as a place where many find a false sense of life!
However feelings aside, many people are destined to be bad since of their conditioned thinking the method their minds have actually been trained, and the way they put them to use or, rather, disuse.
For example …
If you believe you need to watch some phenomenon like the Superbowl rather than taking an active part in your own life, believe and grow bad!
If you think lighting up a cigarette at $40 per carton is ‘cool’ or needed, believe and grow poor!
If you believe this nation is a ‘democracy,’ believe and grow worse. (Clue: It’s a republic but you are being heavily lied to and conditioned against even knowing this, not to mention realizing simply what that distinction is and what that difference indicates. Hint: Ask yourself why?).
Believe and grow poor if you believe the government is out to help you!
If you think a job, a brand-new job, any task is the ‘response,’ think and grow bad!
If you think you have any ‘income,’ believe and grow bad!
The list is limitless!
There are individuals who are poor since they think all business is wicked, Network Marketing is a scam, and their neighbors, friends, or loved ones who have never ever done anything with their lives understand better than someone who has, that ‘you get what you pay for, ‘the turf is always greener …’ or ‘don’t rock the boat.’
And if you’re a black or a female who believes you can’t make it, ask yourself why you want to make it THERE, anyway!
Making it ‘there’ is a battle for the majority of people, no matter the color or gender. Here to use the familiar phrase is where it’s at. If you understand that ‘here’ is your mind and then you really use your mind, you can believe and grow abundant, for modification!
The conditioned idea is not believing! If we think in this way, that is, reacted to conditioning, we will most definitely grow poor! It’s why most everyone is bad– or in financial obligation, which amounts to the same thing!
If you think this country is a ‘democracy,’ believe and grow worse. If you realize that ‘here’ is your mind and then you actually use your mind, you can believe and grow abundant, for a change!
