Patterns for Inhabiting Success
By Napoleon Hill
Patterns for Inhabiting success
An Official Publication of The Napoleon Hill Foundation
Success is best understood as a series of related habits which are deliberate actions taken over time that because of repetition become automatic. Once these success habits become rote, they perform right on schedule for us because they have become a downloaded pattern housed in our subconscious mind. Once entrenched in our subconscious mind, these routine habits have the determination and persistence of weeds, but conversely, these now deliberatively cultivated habits are higher functioning and productive. They are the children of our thoughts, and they are intentionally placed inside our inner psyche to produce offspring that complement who we are and what we still intend to become. Once the key is found to this Treasure Chest, all the goodness of the universe will be ours for the asking.
The principle by which an idea germinates and grows in your mind until it becomes habit was called Cosmic Habit Force by Napoleon Hill. Its name, whether Cosmic Habit Force or neuroplasticity, doesn't matter. It is definite; it has been used and demonstrated by the greatest individuals in the world. And it never fails. It works as well on behalf of the humble person as it does for the business magnate. Its purpose is to perpetuate everything after its own kind, including the thought habits of man.
Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. He began his writing career at age 13 as a "mountain reporter" for small town newspapers and went on to become America's most beloved motivational author. Hill passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful career writing, teaching, and lecturing about the principles of success. Dr. Hill's work stands as a monument to individual achievement and is the cornerstone of modern motivation. His book, Think and Grow Rich, is the all-time bestseller in the field. Hill established the Foundation as a nonprofit educational institution whose mission is to perpetuate his philosophy of leadership, self-motivation, and individual achievement. His books, audio cassettes, videotapes, and other motivational products are made available to you as a service of the Foundation so that you may build your own library of personal achievement materials...and help you acquire financial wealth and the true riches of life.
