Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
The above quotation from Napoleon Hill is extremely precise.
The basic principle is that whatever your mind can imagine... it can create. How does your mind do this? What your mind thinks, sees, believes, feels is all sent to your subconscious mind -- it's a great partner, the real power within you. Your Subconscious Mind then works with the universe and creates your reality based on the messages that began in your mind. But it's not enough to simply imagine it and then hope it happens. That's not the way it works. If you can imagine it you can achieve it -- but you need to know how to use the power of your mind and subconscious mind. Even Napoleon Hill tells you this in every one of his books. But he doesn't tell you how to use all your powers.
Your mind can create wonderful things for you -- if you know how to use that power and how to send the right messages to your subconscious. Most people don't know how to do this. Instead, you go through life never really using the power of your mind and subconscious mind.
Did you know that doctors now firmly believe that 75% of all sickness and disease start in the mind? 75-Percent! That's a very large amount. That means that 75% of all the people who are sick today -- are only sick because they did not know how to use the power of their mind and subconscious mind. Doctors will even tell you that most sickness and disease are caused by stress - which starts in the mind.
Scientists have long said that we only use 10% of our mind power. 10-percent -- that's it. Think of going through life only spending 10-percent of your salary? Could you do it? No! Yet you go through life only using 10% of the power of your mind. That 10-percent is creating 75% of all sickness because we don't even know how to use it properly.
Now imagine if you just used 10% of our mind's power correctly? What would happen? What would happen if we learned to use 90% of our mind's power correctly? Imagine if we could properly direct our subconscious mind? The results would be astounding!
Your mind is an incredible power -- but no one ever taught you how to use this power. Throughout your entire life, you've been taught how to do everything but no one ever taught you how to use your mind.
In order to Create the things you want in life, you must first take control of your mind. It doesn't matter what else you do. If you don't learn to work with your mind -- nothing else will work.
