Whatever The Mind Can Conceive And Believe --- It Can Achieve…. Napoleon Hill

“Whatsoever A Man Soweth, That Shall He Also Reap.” If A Man Is Intelligent, He Will Naturally Seek To Free Himself From Misery And Unhappiness.

There Is A Creative Infinite Intelligence Out There – Ruling The Vast Universe With All Its Stars, Planets And People, And Animals – We Are All Connected To This Creative Intelligence Like A Baby With An Umbilical Cord That Is Attached To Us And The Great Infinite Intelligence

It’s Like A Mighty Dam Filled With Infinite Power Available To Each One Of Us, And We Can Manifest Whatever We Want From Life By Opening Our Valve As Wide As We Can To Let This Power Flow Through Us. We Receive And Manifest Power In Proportion To The Magnitude And Intensity Of Our Belief

All Men And Women Seek Some Relationship To The Universal Mind, The Over-Soul, Or The Eternal Spirit, Which We Call God. And Life Reveals Itself To Whoever Is Receptive To It. That We Are Living In A Spiritual Universe, Which Includes The Material Or Physical Universe, Has Been A Conclusion Of The Deepest Thinkers Of Every Age. That This Spiritual Universe Must Be One Of Pure Intelligence And Perfect Life, Dominated By Love, By Reason And By The Power To Create, Seems An Inevitable Conclusion.

There Is A Power In The Universe That Honors Our Faith In It; There Is A Law In The Universe, Which Exacts The “Uttermost Farthing.” We All Wish To Feel That The Power Behind Everything Is Good, As Well As Creative, And Eternal And Changeless Intelligence, In Which Man Lives And Moves And Has His Being.

Intuitively, We Sense That Every Man, In His Native State, Is Some Part Or Manifestation Of This Eternal Principle; And That The Entire Problem Of Limitation, Evil, Suffering, And Uncertainty Is Not God-Ordained, But Is The Result Of Ignorance.

It Has Been Written That The Truth Shall Make Us Free, Provided We Know The Truth, And We Note That The Evolution Of Man’s Consciousness Brings With It The Acquisition Of New Powers And Higher Possibilities. We Find Ourselves Torn By Confusion, By Conflict, By Affirmation And Denial, By Emotion Congested By Fear, Concealed By Pride. We Are Afraid Of The Universe In Which We Live, Suspicious Of People Around Us, Uncertain Of The Salvation Of Our Own Souls. All These Things Negatively React And Cause Physical Disorders.

Nature Seems To Await Our Comprehension Of Her And, Since She Is Governed By Immutable Laws—The Ignorance Of Which Excuses No Man From Their Effects—The Bondage Of Humanity Must Be A Result Of Our Ignorance Of The True Nature Of Reality. The Storehouse Of Nature May Be Filled With Good, But This Good Is Locked To The Ignorant. The Key To This Door Is Held In The Mind Of Intelligence, Working In Accordance With Universal Law. Through Experience, Man Learns What Is Really Good And Satisfying, What Is Truly Worthwhile. As His Intelligence Increases, And His Capacity To Understand The Subtle Laws Of Nature Grows, He Will Gradually Be Set Free. As He Learns The Truth, The Truth Will Automatically Free Him. When We Learn To Trust The Universe, We Shall Be Happy, Prosperous And Well. We Must Learn To Come Under That Divine Government, And Accept The Fact That Nature’s Table Is Ever Filled. Never Was There A Cosmic Famine. “The Finite Alone Has Wrought And Suffered, The Infinite Lies Stretched In Smiling Repose.” God Is Always God. No Matter What Our Emotional Storm, Or What Our Objective Situation May Be, There Is Always A Something Hidden In The Inner Being That Has Never Been Violated. We May Stumble, But Always There Is That Eternal Voice, Forever Whispering Within Our Ear, That Thing Which Causes The Eternal Quest, That Thing Which Forever Sings And Sings.

Nature’s Table Is Always Full

As Your Intelligence Increases - And Your Capacity To Understand The Laws Of Nature And The Universe Grows - You Will Gradually Be Set Free From Limitation And Bondage. The Truth Shall Set You Free. “It Is Done Unto You As You Believe.” (Jesus) Our Belief Sets The Limitation To Our Demonstration And Manifestation.

Demonstrating The Law

The Possibilities Of The Law Are Infinite, And Our Possibilities Of Using It Are Limitless. There Is Such A Thing As Universal Law And Mind, And We Can Use It If We Comply With Its Nature, Work As It Works. We May, Or Should, Receive Full Benefit, And We Will To The Degree That We Understand And Properly Use The Law. We Can Demonstrate At The Level Of Our Ability To Know. Beyond This, We Cannot Go. But We Will Constantly Expand And Increase In Knowledge And Understanding, Thereby Continuously Growing In Our Ability To Make Use Of The Law. In Time, We Shall Be Made Free Through It.

There Is A Law Of Unfoldment In Man, Which Says He Can Advance Only By Going From Where He Is To The Place Where He Would Like To Be, This Is Not Because The Law Is Limited, But Because It Is Law. As Man Unfolds In His Mentality, The Law Automatically Reacts To Him. The Way To Work Is To Begin Right Where We Are And, Through Constantly Applying Ourselves To The Truth, We Gradually Increase In Wisdom And Understanding, For In This Way Alone Will Good Results Be Obtained. If Day By Day We Have A Grater Understanding And A Clearer Concept, If Daily We Are Realizing More Of Truth And Applying It In Our Actions, Then We Are On The Right Path And Eventually We Shall Be Made Free.

The Student Should Take Time Every Day To See His Life As He Wises It To Be, To Make A Mental Picture Of His Ideal. He Should Pass This Picture Over To The Law And Go About His Business, With A Calm Assurance That On The Inner Side Of Life Something Is Taking Place. There Should Not Be Any Sense Of Hurry Or Worry About This, Just A Calm, Peaceful Sense Of Reality. Let The Law Work Through, And Express Itself In, The Experience. There Should Be No Idea Of Compulsion. We Do Not Have To Make The Law Work; It Is Its Nature To Work. In Gladness, Then, We Should Wait Upon The Perfect Law Of The Universe To Manifest Through Us.

Our Part Is To Be Ready And Willing To Be Guided Into Truth And Liberty…. Rick Gettle

Rick’s Comments

In 1954, I started reading all of Napoleon Hill’s books and since then read each one over thirty-five times (I stopped counting): Law of Success, Think and Grow Rich, The Master Key to Riches, Grow Rich With Peace of Mind, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, You Can Work Your Own Miracles and Succeed and Grow Rich Through Persuasion.

In 1970, I bought a distributorship to market Napoleon Hill’s “Philosophy of Success” program and started teaching his Success Course. I created The Master Mind Alliance Success Club to help my students follow through and put the principles into practice. In addition to teaching the course in hotels, meeting rooms and in-house in many large and small corporations, I also taught the course in San Quentin Prison and at the Delancy Street Foundation for ex-cons, pimps, prostitutes, drug and alcohol addicts.

In 1974, I got a phone call from a Mr. John Haid who was the president of the Napoleon Hill Academy. He said that he heard quite a bit about my classes and me and that he wanted to fly out to San Francisco to meet with me. When we got together, he told me he was going to set up a Napoleon Hill Academy Franchise in Northern California and wanted to find the most qualified person to run it. He was here for about a week and interviewed several eager people who wanted that privilege. Many of them were very successful and had lots of money to gladly pay for the franchise. After several meetings with each one of us, John decided that I was the most knowledgeable on Napoleon Hill’s Success principles and gave the franchise to me. I am still sharing these principles in my Science of Success Achievement Course that my students are studying today, and also in my Master Mind Alliance Success Club meetings.
