Think And Grow Rich

Napoleon Hill, author of  Think and Grow Rich, wrote these words “There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it.  No one is ready for a thing, until they believe they can acquire it.  The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish.  Open-mindedness is essential for belief.  Closed minds will not inspire faith, courage or belief.”

When I read that, I paused, read it again then sat back in my chair.  To say it is a profound thought would be true for me – perhaps I was ready to open my mind to a new idea, or perhaps I was ready to try something new.  Whatever the reason, the importance of the words stayed with me.  It became a pivotal moment in my life.

I shifted my thinking….I shifted from wishing and hoping to believing.
