Healing The Mind With Ho’oponopono

This week, I witnessed the advent of electronic charting in
our workplace, and am gratified to be learning for once and
for all how closing the mind and opening the mind yield two
entirely different results.

I view the IPROB computer system as a fragment of myself.

(IPROB is the new OB/GYN based computer program upon which
all of
us must now chart our patient’s medical record).

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing technique that
nurses need to learn in order to survive as a thriving, active and
beautiful healing component of the health care system.

Using computers and other advanced technological machines
in our work tends to make a nurse feel separate from her
patients.

The strange temptation arises to gaze at the computer
wheneverI am in the middle of charting something. When my patient
speaks, I glance her way, glance back at the computer; glance at her,
glance back at the computer,like some sort of multi-tasking geek.

The reality is, that these technological advances can free
us up to be a healing presence for our patients.

But until I feel at peace with the machine, I can never
feel at peace with anyone or anything else.

A mind divided cannot be in harmony, which is what our
patients want from us: a well balanced and harmonious, happy
healing presence, takinggood care of her and making her feel good about being in
the hospital to begin with.

As soon as we come to see the IPROB machine as ultimately
meaning nothing,and that we make up our meaning about it and about
everything else, then an awakening occurs.

What I think about the IPROB machine is a reflection of my
mind, is not a truth or even a fact about it.

When I view IPROB as a problem, I am interpreting,
remembering, comparing and judging any memory I have about this and all similar
memories, certainly not living in the present moment.

Imagine two exact same scenarios experienced by two
different people:
One nurses decides that she loves IPROB. Consequently, she
is efficient,
moves patients through the system quicker, spends more
time with her patients,and barely has any problems or glitches in the system.

Another nurse decides that she hates IPROB. The computer
continually loses her entries, freezes up and shuts down.

I am somewhere in the middle, hating it and loving it,
trying to make philosophical sense of it, with varying degrees of success
and failure.

The mind creates the sress and fear, the balance and well-
being in these examples.

So where does the practice of Ho’oponopono fit into my
perception of what I see as a problem with electronic charting, with nurses
leaving the profession, with the nursing shortage, and with my own feelings of
powerlessness regarding all of it?

Firstly, Ho’oponopono teaches that problems and situations
do not exist outside of me, (or you), as we perceive them.

Perceptions are reflections of our thoughts.

If I perceive an outer manifestation as a problem, then I
have the opportunity to recognize that I am 100% responsible for creating it,
thus having 100% responsibility for erasing and cleaning the problem
and all my judgements and criticisms about the problem.

The perceived problems is simply a shared memory that we
all have in common, back to the beginning of humanity.

We clean and erase these problems by inwardly and incessantly chanting: I love you,
Thank you, I am sorry (for my part in creating this
problem), Please Forgive me
(for my part in creating this problem).

We inwardly and incessantly chant even before perceiving
the problem.

I feel relief by this practice because if I am 100%
responsible for creating all aspects
of my life, and if all of it without exception is an
inside job, then I can work
on it within myself without depending on anything or
anyone else.

At the same time, the phrases I love you, Thank you, I am
sorry, Please forgive me are
directed to my higher power, divinity, the angels, God/ess.

We let the unseen forces solve all “problems” as we chant
our phrases.

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing technique that
nurses can use to
save themselves, save our profession.

This is a spiritual practice that in its simplicity, fits
well into modern
life. It applies to every single problem our world is
having at this time:
violence in our schools, homes and communities, drug and
alcohol addiction,
deep depression and sadness, suffering of all kinds.

None of it is “out there.”

If I see it, it’s mine.

My responsibility is to take 100% responsibility, to stop
the blaming, stop
the finger pointing.

Bless Ho’oponopono: Bless all the spiritual practices that
bring us peace.

Napoeon Hill’s 13 Principles For Nurses

Think and Grow Rich! is a classic motivational book. Written by
Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie, it was published
in 1937 at the end of the Great Depression.

The following 13 principles are now seventy years old this year:

1)Desire
2)Faith
3)Auto-suggestion
4)Specialized Knowledge
5)Imagination
6)Organized Planning
7)Decision
8)Persistence
9)The Master Mind
10)The Mystery of Sex Transmutation
11)The Subconscious Mind
12)The Brain
13)The Sixth Sense
…….Outwit your Fears

We don’t usually equate Nurses with the Napoleon Hill philosophy. Yet by applying
these Success Principles, we can become much better nurses.

The Napoleon Hill philosophy has received many modern day re-evaluations.

Much has been added to it in the last forty years, since the human
potential movement began in the 1960’s.

Most recently, “The Secret”, “Millionaire: Awaken Your Secret” and “What
The Bleep Do We Know” has added to the enormity of the subject.

The Law of Attraction. although controversial after the rise in
popularity of “The Secret,” certainly was hinted at time and time
again in Napoleon Hill’s original work.

Are business people closet manifestors? Business people believe
universally that a goal must be focused on day after day at all costs.

Yet Divine Purpose is often missing in normal business activities.

But when we connect to divinity, we become more efficient manifestors.
At the same time, in the process of alligning to a higher power, the
physical body opens to the flow of this faster, higher frequency.

The area between the troat and lower stomach is where a person can
learn to feel and heed the the messages of his or her body.

Forinstance, if you are in tune with your purpose here on Planet
Earth, you will feel an opening up, a sense of joy. If you feel
constriction in this area of the body, you are out of allignment.

The truth of who you are is in a state of imbalance.

This area between your throat and lower stomach is where you listen and
feel your internal guidance system.

You may have a Big Vision for your life. But the little desires along
the way, such as the impulse to call someone, to write a letter or an
email, to write an article, to compose or play a song, are steps along
the way leading to the Big Vision of your life.

You may think you know what you want, but Divinity may have different plans.

Listen to your body, your internal guidance system. Stay with the desires
that speak to the feeling of an opening up within your body.

Stay with what you want in each moment, whether it’s to experience more
patience, compassion or more joy.

If you desire to have a good night’s sleep, then follow through with
that guiding impulse.

As you experience many small successes, celebrate each of these. You may have
hundreds of small successes in any given day.

In order to realize the Big Goal, follow through with the small desires,
keeping track of the synchronicities that arise from these.

In the end, it’s not about achieving your goals, it’s about experiencing the
emotion of completion, love and satisfaction that arise from the everyday joys.

It’s all about the journey, not the destination.

Enjoy the life you are living. Experience every sensation. Take the
opportunity to feel, sense, taste, hear and see.

Your only job is to stay open from moment to moment.

The Big Dream may take years to manifest, but because you are having so much fun
along the way, time becomes inconsequential.

Happiness in the Now is the one great achievement.

Grasping for a goal lays the foundation for fear, doubt and lack. Write down
the goal and visualize it but release the worry, want and fear.

Be happy now in order to facilitate your fondest dream.

Be your own personal joy.

Follow the next desire that opens you to the joy of living. Ask Divinity,
the Angels and the Higher Guides to help you whenever you feel constriction
in your body.

Live your life purpose NOW.

This is the life you were meant to live.

The Tricks Of Opportunity

Napoleon Hill

I recently watched a you-tube video of Barry Goss who was
discussing what he called the Manifestation Void.

People who watch The Secret go on and expect immediate
manifestation of their wishes and desires.

Maybe a few weeks go by and “nothing happens.”

Many people on our Powerful Intentions forums speak of attracting thousands of
dollars, after watching The Secret–if not much more, maybe much less.

The people who are not attracting what they want, and say that
“nothing seems to be happening” are experiencing what Barry calls
the Manifestation Void.

“Millionaire: Awaken Your Secret” addresses this void when Martin
Dunkerton decides on his Million Dollar Idea (what is yours?),
and several weeks go by without any seeming movement from the outside world.

Martin persisted.

He held on and visualized his Idea every single day.

He looked in the mirror and looked into his own eyes and repeated:
“I love you.” (A very moving scene!!!)

((( Saying ho’oponopono phrases while gazing into your own eyes
is a powerful exercise–Try It!!)))

When the universe began to move and opportunities arose, and Martin was
synchronistically led to each next step, The Manifestation Void fell away.

We can learn from this.

“When the opportunity came, it appeared in a different form, and from
a different direction ….That is one of the tricks of opportunity.
It has a sly habit of slipping in the back door, and often comes disguised
in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat. Perhaps this is why so many fail to
recognize opportunity.” Napoleon Hill

This is a great truth.

The chinese character for crisis is opportunity.

Funny, and sad, how knee jerk a reaction it is to aw-fulize situations in the
normal everyday world.

Yet the root of the word awful is full of awe.

The opportunity to change around a situation in your mind, and learn to see and
perceive all experience in the light of wonder and curiosity automatically
takes away any need to judge.

The opportunity to invite the unseen forces into any and all seemingly adverse
situations is usually missed. But to do so will make the mind receptive
to The One Idea that will change your life.

While in the middle of seemingly adverse conditions, and better yet, long before,
the practice of ho’oponopono gradually or immediately erases the memory
that causes these conditions and circumstances.

The practice of ho’oponopono releases and reverses the perception of adversity.

Therein lies the opportunity.

The perception of adversity impedes flow and builds resistance to
the manifestation of our dearest, deepest dreams.

Changing perception from fear and doubt (ego), to Divinity creates
miracle mindedness, and the Joy of Life.

Napoleon Hill would agree that this is a Universal Trick Of Opportunity:
Change Your Mind, Change Your Life.

Visualize your whole identity linked only to God, not to the constantly
shifting sands of the outside world, but to the changeless Inner
Power of Infinite Intelligence.

Release the doubt and fear and great riches will flow like a
river current (currency) or a fast moving stream.

Imagine this flow raining great riches from the sky, a never
ending supply, more than enough for every one.

What is the vehical for YOUR never-ending supply?

What Is Your Burning Desire?

Self-Determination

I started a new forum over at Powerful Intentions called “Think Riches.”

http://mukunda22.powerfulintentions.com/forum/thinkandgrowrich

The purpose of this forum is to see if we can duplicate Martin Dunkerton’s success, in his movie Millionaire: Awaken Your Secret, when he followed the Napoleon Hill 13 principles. We will allow Martin’s inspiring success inform our own path to success!!

Martin’s odyssey is beautifully set forth in his movie.

Some who love The Secret and who have already seen Millionaire say that this movie goes where The Secret did not or could not go– It shows from start (poverty) to finish (great riches and peace of mind) the path that anyone can follow, and realize financial freedom.

Another vision I have for this forum is for all of us to utilize the wonderful spiritual principles presented at all the PI forums– like Ho’oponopono, EFT, Law Of Attraction, Easy World and much, much more… and integrate these with Napoleon Hill’s “Think And Grow Rich.”

Much Love And Many Thanks– Kate Loving Shenk

A Personal V-Day Monologue

I recently watched the creator of the Vagina Monologues, Eva Ensler, on an internet broadcast.

I was immediately inspired to celebrate my 20 year anniversary as a Woman’s Health Nurse Practitioner.

I can’t even begin to count the number of vaginal exams I’ve done. But I was gentle enough that women requested my exam over that of anyone else’s where I used to work.

After going to see the Vagina Monologues for the first time, I no longer took that compliment for granted.

The Vagina Monologues is made up of a varying number of monologues read by a assorted number of women (initially, Eve Ensler performed every monologue herself, with subsequent performances featuring three actresses, and more recent versions featuring a different actress for every role).

Every monologue somehow relates to the vagina, be it through sex, love, rape, menstruation, mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the variety of names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the female body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.

Some monologues include:

• I Was Twelve, My Mother Slapped Me: a chorus describing many young women’s and girls’ first menstrual period.

• My Angry Vagina, in which a woman humorously rants about injustices wrought against the vagina, such as tampons, douches, and the tools used by OB/GYNs

• My Vagina Was My Village, a monologue compiled from the testimonies of Bosnian women subjected to rape camps.

• The Little Coochie Snorcher That Could, in which a woman recalls memories of traumatic sexual experiences in her childhood and a self-described “positive healing” sexual experience in her adolescent years with an older woman.

• The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy, in which a dominatrix for women discusses the intriguing details of her career and her love of giving women pleasure. In several performances it often comes at the end of the play, literally climaxing with a vocal demonstration of a “triple orgasm.”

• Because He Liked to Look At It, in which a woman describes how she came to love her vagina because of a sexual experience with a man who was in awe of vaginas.

• I Was There In The Room, a monologue in which Eve Ensler describes the birth of her granddaughter.

Every year a new monologue is added to highlight a current issue affecting women around the world. The monologue is performed at thousands of local V-Day benefit productions of the play that take place annually in February and March raising funds for local groups, shelters, crisis centers working to end violence against women. In 2003, for example, Ensler wrote a new monologue about the plight of women in Afghanistan under Taliban rule. This Monologue is known as “Under the Burqa.”

The Vagina Monologues are the cornerstone of the V-Day movement, whose participants stage benefit performances of the show worldwide each year between February 1st and March 8th (International Women’s Day). The first V-Day benefit took place on Valentine’s Day 1998 and many of the local benefits are held on Valentine’s Day.

The “V” in V-Day stands for Valentine, Vagina, and Victory, linking love and respect for women to ending violence against women and girls. The proceeds from these performances go to programs that work to end violence against women and girls, including crisis centers and women’s shelters.

In 2007, more than 3000 V-Day events took place in 1150 colleges and communities in the U.S. and around the world. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $40 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns, launched the Karama program in the Middle East, reopened shelters, and funded over 5000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq.

This year marks my V Day Coming Out Party.

I no longer stand by as women are dis-repected and demeaned.

I am a self-appointed advocate for women and nurses everywhere.

In my personal life, I no longer people please, and no matter what someone tells me they think I should be doing, I always consult my inner guides and angels, first.

This year also marks the 20th anniversary of my mother’s death.

I am my mother’s daughter.

I am here to champion the cause of women’s suffrage, just like my mother and my grandmother, my mother’s mother.

The ancestral lineage smiles upon us all.

Ghost Nurses

Nurses on night shift like to tell ghost stories in the wee
morning hours.

The longer we practice in the medical field, the more amazing
the story. Sometimes opportunities arise to share these
experiences, assuming all the right variables are in place,
like sleeping patients, work that can be done at a later time,
and just the need to chat and share.

Last night was one such night.

We all had survived a traumatic week of Obstetric emergencies.
Thankfully, no one died.

But as we were debriefing from our mutual experiences, I could
not help but think that nurses suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress,
right up there with war survivors, policemen, firemen, crisis workers,
social workers and teachers.

Then one of my co-workers described an unusual scene.

Years before, she worked in an old wing of a hospital, dating
back to the early 1900’s. The floors creaked. The odors were
reminiscent of years and years of accumulated history.

A strange oddity kept repeating itself. My friend would go to do
a patient assessment and the patient would say: “Oh, a nurse was
just in and did all of that.”
(Blood pressure, taking temperature, listening to lung sounds, etc.)

Finally, my friend asked her patients to describe the nurse who had just
performed duties that in a normal scenario’s, should have been done by
my friend.

The description was always the same.

She was older, wore a white nursing dress, white shoes, white hose,
and the dead giveaway: a white nursing cap.

Nurses don’t wear those anymore.

Finally, the nurses took this story to their nursing supervisor
who confided what everyone already knew: The nurse in question–the
one with the nursing cap who busily did patient care before any
living nurse on the floor—was a ghost!

My friend further said that she decided to thank this nurse for all of
her hard work for the good of everyone there.

Then one night, my friend felt a strong gut urge to go immediately
into a patient room, who was gasping for breath. All heroic measures
to save her were in vain.

She died of a pulmonary emboli.

But at least she did not die alone.

My friend said she knew the old nurse was the one who alerted her
to this dire circumstance.

Again, she thanked her for her vigilance and diligent service.

The old nurse could be viewed as a ghost, or an angel, or a
powerful guide for the unseen realms of existence.

Yet as she did her work, she made herself visible to those she chose
to serve. And when the nurses consciously thanked her for her work,
she alerted them to dire and critical patient-care emergencies.

Nurses often feel abandoned when they have to face critical life
threatening patient situations.

A good example are the nurses who have 20-30 years of experience
and work with doctors who lack experience but refuse to acknowledge
the great work of the nurse, who actually saves a life, and the doctor
takes the credit for it.

Rarely have I seen a physician give credit to the amazing skill of
the nurse who assesses the patient hour by hour by the bedside.

When we call at 3 am, for any reason, we often are blown off for
over reacting.

But it’s really between us and the angels, the unseen forces and
God, anyway. We don’t do what we do to get short-lived approval, but
for the heroic grace that accompanies good work and service.

And many of us may continue to visit the patient at the bedside
and administer care long after we leave this physical life.

That is truly the most amazing feat of all!

Nurses, Petition Your Angels For Help

Nurses are a group that are notorious for refusing help, and
refusing to ask for help.

They are a group that face trauma on a regular basis, who
suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, and who do not get
help for this condition.

Perhaps we do not think anyone really can help.

But I know who we can turn to get the help we need every
day: We can call on The Company Of Angels every day, if not
every moment of every day to receive the help we deserve.

But first, we must really believe we do deserve this help!

But act as if you deserve, and soon you will feel the deserving
you need to feel in order to receive this loving, healing energy.

17 Ways to Call Angelic Help:

1) Mentally send ther angels out ahead of you to clear the
path for auspicious experiences

2) Ask for the help you need without needing to know the outcome

3) Ask–then let it go

4) Imagine your angels as your very best friends

5) Keep an open mind–the help you receive may not look like what
you think

6) Ask to be inspired to take enlightened action after you have
asked for help

7) Imagine the channels of communication between you and your angels
as open and free

8) Ask to know the lessons you need to learn from your difficult life
situation

9) Sometimes the prayer “Please Help Me” can be enough

10) Be persistent in applying tools to clear past trauma, habits
that impede flow and negative thought patterns that deflate your
energy

11) Ask the angels to lead you to the spiritual tool to help in clearing
all your past and present traumas

12) Ask: to what degree am I willing to do my part to free myself of this
trauma and challenge? To what degree am I willing to give to the angels
my need to control outcome?

13) Close and open your day by petitioning the unseen angelic
forces for guidance and enlightened choices throughout the day and
night

14) Enlist the angels to proceed you in your day, to orchestrate every
detail, and to prepare the space for the benefit, blessings and well-being
of all the people you meet today

15) Take 1-3 days to be alone without cell phones, computers, TV, books
or radio. Be with the day. Feel the energy moment by moment. Concentrate
on living in the present moment.

Do a fruit fast, and drink plenty of pure water during this period of time.

Contemplate, meditate and breathe deeply and lovingly.

16)Ask the angels: to lead you to the spiritual practice that will clear you
of the resistance to the presence of the entire celestial realm

17) Express gratitude for all the help that the angels give you.

Gratitude for everything is the key to bringing more of the good into
your life, NOW.

Forgiving everyone and everything is the key to keeping
the flow of all good things moving in your life.

And accepting your part, taking 100% responsibility for everything
that happens, without finger pointing or blame, is the final key to
liberation.

Ask your angels to help you with this.

Next time, I will tell about a Hawaiian healing technique that clears
you of all past, present and future pain, by erasing all personal
and shared memories.

Until then, Aloha!

The backlash associated with The Secret seems to surround
the attitude that any material thing and any amount of money is
yours, as long as you are clear of the negative core-beliefs
that play over and over in your mind, thus preventing you
from achieving your wishes and dreams.

The objection has to do with the greed associated with getting
with out apparent regard to giving.

The Law of Attraction is much more than getting anything
you want. For example, decide what it is you really want, then
start giving what you want away. Whatever it is: just give it away.

And feel good the whole time you are in the act of doing so.

If negative beliefs arise such as “Who do you think you are?”

Or: “I can’t give something I don’t have,”

or: “My parents hoarded money and goods during the depression,
therefore I have learned there isn’t enough to go around,” then
make peace with these limiting beliefs and embrace them.

Decide where these judgements are coming from.

Are they coming from your Humanity (wounded ego) or your
Divinity (from a place of peace, love, joy and transcendence)?

Develop a sense of appreciation for what you perceive as
negative as well as the positive. It’s all good (God).

When you decide a certain belief is “wrong,” you are only etching the
belief deeper and deeper into your psyche.

By resisting and struggling against these beliefs, you are
giving them a certain power to run your life.

I recommend developing a spiritual tool box.

My box, forinstance, holds the following tools:

EFT (emotional freedom therapy)
Ho’oponopono (a Hawaiian clearing technique)
Kriya Yoga (as taught by Paramahansa Yogananda, Self-Realization
Fellowship)
Writing
Spiritual Recovery
Guardian Angel Therapy

I use these tools, sometimes every moment of every day.

Strength lies in surrounding your negative core beliefs
with a neutral charge. Learn the art of observation. As the limiting
thoughts arise, coming from a place of lack, learn to be
a witness, as opposed to being appalled by these thoughts and feelings.

Be willing to find all of yourself exactly where you
are, in the present moment. If you are in discord, choose to pull
from your spiritual tool box the instrument needed to get
you into a place of harmony, NOW.

Acknowledge the beliefs that cause you pain. By acknowledging them,
you can then transform them.

Accept and embrace these beliefs, and ask–Why did or do I need them?
Why am I attracted to one negative belief over another?

We are here on the planet at this time to reconnect with the Divine
at the same time that we love our humanity.

Balancing these two forces will bring harmony to our lives.

We are here to give–money, food, service, truth, love, joy,
and appreciation and much much more.

In the act of giving these higher vibrations, the vibrations
of the planet move away from anger, hate and war.

By consciously opening the heart center to receive and then to give
only joyful and loving vibrations, we have done a great service.

We haved saved ourselves.

We have saved the planet.

Empowering Nurses To Love Themselves

Empowering Nurses To Love Themselves

22 Keys To Self-Empowerment For Nurses

1) The Gift of life is found in the present moment, where the
choice to love, appreciate and expand in abundance and joy
is always available

2) Say “YES” to unseen forces such as angels, higher guides
and God/ess. Allow these forces to guide patient care, interactions
with doctors and other nurses, and most importantly, with
the relationship you have with yourself

3) Look in the mirror and say, “I love you, I value you, You
deserve the best!”

4) Transform one predominate negative thought and make major
shifts in your energy

5) Now transform another and then another negative thought to
one of joy and transcendence

6) Free yourself of fear, doubt and desperation and beneficial
outcomes are certain

7) Shift your energy from negative resistant vibrations to
positive, receptive vibrations

8) You can get what you want by knowing you don’t need it
to be happy. Send out the energy that you are willing to
wait for the goal you’ve always dreamed of

9) Focus your attention on all the great things in your life
and appreciate them all, one by one. Any residual feelings of
lack will dissipate.

10) Be patient in the Divine Timeline. Allow your major goal
to be: to live with optimism and trust, and all your desires
will be met.

Say to yourself: “I am letting go of lack and choose to see
only the value and blessings in my life from this moment on.”

Say to yourself: “I release urgency and live in trust. I know as
I let go of need, I attract all my desires to me.”

11) Seek a peaceful mind and heart, because this is where all
blessings flow.

The more conflict you experience in your thoughts and feelings,
the more discord you will attract to you

12) Get in balance by living in a continual flow of self-acceptance
and self-love

13) Make the decision to be in harmonic flow with the Universe
by choosing peace over conflict, trust over doubt, value over
judgement

14) Use your journal to release your negative thoughts. If feeling
depressed, write down what you are thinking and feeling, then
write down a more positive assumption. This will help you create
greater peace in your emotions

15) Know that the Higher Intelligence of all creation vibrates
and pulsates around you and everyone else at all times. Allign
your self with this all-powerful heartbeat, and synchronize it
with your own

16) As you synchronize yourself with All That Is and the Divine
Vibration, you will see clearly, act purely, and creativity will
flow into your total expression

18) Honor yourself, Honor all sentient Beings. Ground this respect
in a loving force for healing

19) The more you choose to respect others and release judgement, the
more you live in a compassionate vibration

20) Release competitive thoughts and see people in a different light.
See everyone–patients, doctors, co-workers, family, children and friends
as the blessing they deserve to be

21) The power of your own personal vibration has the power to transform
the planet.

Choose to magnetize your vibration with love and abundance, generosity
and inspired action

22) Choose the power of love to heal your life. Think love, feel love,
beam love in all your interactions and the Gift Of Life Is Yours.

The Achievement Mindset, Part 1

Recently, after going to an on-line business building “bootcamp,”
I made some interesting observations when I returned to the
work-a-day world, where the time clock and hard work “by the sweat
of your brow,” sent me on an odyssey that even Napoleon Hill would
agree with, if I could have the opportunity to sit with him, and
discuss these musings.

Napoleon Hill was an American author who was one of the earliest
producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature.

His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich, is one of the best-selling
books of all time.

Hill stated in his writings that people are free to believe what
they want to believe, and this is what sets the United States apart
from all other countries in the world. Hill’s works examined the
power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success.

“What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” is
one of Hill’s hallmark expressions. How achievement actually occurs,
and a formula for it that puts success in reach for the average
person, were the promise of Hill’s books.

Hill called his success teachings “The Philosophy of Achievement”
and he considered freedom, democracy, capitalism, and harmony to be
important contributing elements. For without these, Hill demonstrated
throughout his writings, personal beliefs are not possible.

He contrasted his philosophy with others, and thought Achievement
was superior and responsible for the success Americans enjoyed for
the better part of two centuries. Fear and selfishness had no part
to play in his philosophy. Hill considered them to be the source of
failure for unsuccessful people.

The secret of Achievement was tantalizingly offered to readers of Think
and Grow Rich. This secret was never named directly as Hill felt
discovering it for themselves would provide readers with the most benefit.

Hill presented the idea of a “Definite Major Purpose” as a challenge
to his readers, to make them ask of themselves “in what do you truly
believe?” For according to Hill, most people had no firm beliefs,
putting true success firmly out of reach.

Hill’s numerous books have sold millions of copies, proving that
the secret of Achievement is still highly sought-after by modern
Americans. Hill dealt with many controversial subjects through his
writings including racism, slavery, oppression, failure, revolution,
war and poverty. Persevering and then succeeding in spite of these
obstacles using the philosophy of Achievement, Hill stated, was the
responsiblity of every American Hill’s Life and Works

Hill was born into poverty in a two-room cabin in the town of Pound
in rural Wise County, Virginia. His mother died when he was ten years
old. His father remarried two years later.

At the age of thirteen he began writing as a “mountain reporter”
for small-town newspapers. He used his earnings as a reporter to
enter law school, but soon had to withdraw for financial reasons.

The turning point in his career is considered to have been in
1908 with his assignment, as part of a series of articles about
famous men, to interview industrialist Andrew Carnegie, one of
the most powerful men in the world, at the time.

Hill discovered that Carnegie believed that the process of success
could be elaborated in a simple formula that could be duplicated by the average person.
Impressed with Hill, Carnegie commissioned him to interview
over 500 successful men and women, many of them millionaires,
in order to discover and publish this formula for success.

As part of his research, Hill interviewed many of the most
famous people of the time, including Thomas Edison, Alexander
Graham Bell, George Eastman, Henry Ford, Elmer Gates, John D.
Rockefeller, Charles M. Schwab, F.W. Woolworth, William Wrigley
Jr., John Wanamaker, William Jennings Bryan, Theodore Roosevelt,
William H. Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Charles Allen Ward and Jennings
Randolph.

The project lasted over twenty years, during which Hill became
an advisor to Carnegie. As a result of these studies, the Philosophy
of Achievement was offered as a formula for rags-to-riches success
by Hill and Carnegie, published initially in 1928 as the book The
Law of Success.

The Achievement formula was detailed further and published in
home-study courses, including the seventeen-volume “Mental Dynamite”
series until 1941.

From 1919 to 1920 Hill was the editor and publisher of Hill’s Golden
Rule magazine. It was during this time he wrote a letter to Charles
F. Haanel in which he praised his book The Master Key System.

In the letter he writes: “..I believe I ought to inform you that
my present success and the success which has followed my work as
President of the Napoleon Hill Institute is due largely to the
principles laid down in The Master Key System.”

In 1930 he published The Ladder to Success. From 1933 to 1936 Hill
was an unpaid advisor to President Franklin Roosevelt.

In 1937 Hill distilled the Philosophy of Achievement and produced
his most famous work, Think and Grow Rich, which is still in print
in several versions, and has sold more than thirty million copies.

In 1960, Hill published an abridged version of the book, which for
years was the only one generally available. In 2004, Ross Cornwell
published Think and Grow Rich!: The Original Version, Restored and
Revised, restoring the book to its original content, with slight
revisions, and added the first comprehensive endnotes, index, and
appendix the book had ever contained.

From 1952 to 1962 he worked with W. Clement Stone of the Combined
Insurance Company of America to teach Stone’s “Philosophy of Personal
Achievement”, and to lecture on the “Science of Success”.

Partly as a result of his work with Stone, he published Success Through
a Positive Mental Attitude. He died in 1970 in South Carolina, and in
1971 his final work, You Can Work Your Own Miracles, was published
posthumously.

We learn from Napoleon Hill’s famous books. By following the
principles included therein, undoubtedly the
Achievement Mindset can be won.
