FEAR: The Chief Enemy of Success You Must Conquer First
We have discussed all the 13 principles to transform your money desire to its physical equivalents (Cash or asset). Before you can put any portion of this philosophy into successful use, your mind must be prepared to receive it. The preparation begins with the study, analysis and understanding of the three enemies you shall have to clear out from your mind. They are indecision, doubt and fear.
Note that the sixth sense will never function while these three negatives, or any of them, remain in your mind. The trio is closely related because where one is found; the other two are close at hand. Indecision is the seedling of fear. Indecision grows into doubt and the two blends and become fear. The process through which the two blends is often slow. So, it is important you guide your mind against these three dangerous enemies of success. If you fail to do so, they will germinate and grow without you observing their presence and the calamity they are doing to your life.
Having stated the above premise, it is important you know that the climax of the trio is fear. You need to understanding the enemy called fear, how it operates and how to put it on check. According to Napoleon Hill, he classified fear into six basic fears. They are;
1. Fear of Poverty
2. Fear of criticism
3. Fear of ill health
4. Fear of loss of love of someone
5. Fear of old age
6. Fear of death
According to him, all other fears are minor and are find inside these basic fears. Fear is nothing more than states of mind. And one’s state of mind is subject to control and direction. It is important I state that we cannot create anything that is not first conceived in the form of an impulse of thought. So, thought impulses begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical equivalent, whether those thoughts are voluntary or involuntary. Know that thought impulses picked up from the ether by chance, that’s thoughts released by other minds; may determine one’s financial, business, professional or social destiny just as surely as the thought impulses one created by intent and design will shape his/her destiny. For instance, we have lots of people wallowing in poverty, anguish and hardship because they accepted the idea that you will not attain any greatness if you do not go to school or if you are infected with disability or if you are living in the remotest part of your country. But these are beliefs that you have involuntarily accepted because it seems to be the ethos of your society and you allow them to relegate you to penury and hardship when you can discard these beliefs and fill your mind with positive beliefs like every man has inside him/her enormous seed of greatness. And our circumstance does not determine who and what we become in life rather we determine destiny and use it to influence our circumstances. When one dominates his mind with these kinds of positive beliefs, you will start translating them into their physical equivalents.
