A Year of Growing Rich:  Have Confidence in Yourself

Book Cover

This is the twelfth week of a 52 week motivational journey and I want to invite you along.  Each week, I will touch on one of the chapters from Napoleon Hill's book titled  A Year of Growing Rich and subtitled "52 Steps to Achieving Life's Rewards."  

If you would like you can pick up a new or used copy from Amazon for as low as a few cents  -- a great investment in your future.  Previous posts in this series can be accessed by clicking here.

Hill says, "The person who backs his ideas and plans with self-confidence always has the advantage over those who give up and quit at the first signs of defeat".

A self confident person has a much greater chance to become successful. Therefore, it is very important to build your self-confidence.

"Use your subconscious to build your self-confidence, and you will train your mind to serve you in everything you do, says Hill. 

Many people overlook the secret to building their self-confidence by using the subconscious because the method is not complex.  "...the subconscious can be directed by simply talking to it and getting it orders as if it were an invisible person standing ready with the power and the willingness to do whatever is requested of it," according to Hill.

It is extremely important that the thoughts and words given to the subconscious are positive. The person who gives positive directions will receive positive results, while the person who gives negative directions will receive negative results.

Remember, having self-confidence is a major step towards achieving success.

Janet,  You will really enjoy the book. And I think using your subconscious can build faith as well as self-confidence. 

Tony & Darcy, Thank you. This book is well worth buying and reading.

Damon, I'm glad you're enjoying my reports on the book. I'm finding that I am learning much more about the book by stressing one chapter each week. Thanks for the comment on website.

Nor, I hope this gave you the inspiration you wanted. I need a little myself today as I drove through a blizzard. I just told about it in another post:

These suggestions will help anyone needing confidence...... I like the idea of not creating thoughts that are "resistant" to what I am trying to create.  As soon as a resistant thoughts get going, I know I am fighting "the current", and working against myself. I say to myself: "create a better thought".... and I do!  I head "downstream" and life is much easier "going with the flow" of well-being, abundance, and easier to attract what I want....
