Chapter 11 The Mystery of Sex Transmutation (Emotional Energy)
This last weekend I went to the theaters to watch a remake of a classic movie of which most people have seen.
After reading this chapter I became Kinley aware as I was watching this movie that it had all of the 10 stimuli in the movie. However it started out with the main character indulging to much in the last two stimuli, number 9 and 10.
The emotions are states of mind. Nature has provided man with a “chemistry of the mind” which operates in a manner similar to the principles of chemistry of matter.
It is a well known fact that, through the aid of chemistry of matter, a chemist may create a deadly poison by mixing certain elements, none of which are—in themselves—harmful in the right proportions.
The emotions may, likewise, be combined so as to create a deadly poison. The emotions of sex and jealousy, when mixed, may turn a person into an insane Beast.
During the course of the movie, this character meets a beautiful woman,and, with her help re-learns The other positive eight mind stimuli, and Falls in love with this beautiful woman.
Hill states: Man's greatest motivating force is His desire to please woman!
The result of this is this main character regains his eight positive mind stimuli, and his friends and wealth as well.
Most men will not admit that they are easily influenced by the women they prefer, because it is in the nature of the male to want to be recognized as the stronger of the species. Moreover, the intelligent woman recognizes this “manly trait” and very wisely makes no issue of it.
Some Men Know that they are being influenced by the women of their choice—their wives, sweethearts, mothers or sisters—but they tactfully refrain from rebelling against the influence because they are intelligent enough to know that:
"NO MAN IS HAPPY OR COMPLETE WITHOUT THE MODIFYING INFLUENCE OF THE RIGHT WOMAN".
(Most people may have heard this another way: "Behind every successful man stands a Woman"!)
The man who does not recognize this important truth deprives himself of the power which has done more to help men achieve success than All Other Forces Combined.
Thank You Mr Napoleon Hill.
Ohh, PS: Beauty and the Beast ")
