The First Step toward Riches

Last week in Chapter 1, we learned that "Thoughts are Things."  We create our
own reality by what we tell our subconscious mind.

In this Chapter, Napoleon Hill continues his example of Edwin C. Barnes and how
he had a BURNING DESIRE to go into business with Edison, no matter how long it

Hill begins giving us his recipe which has created many 100,000s and 100,000s of
very successful people over the last 80+ years. He put DESIRE as the First Step
toward riches, because we must develop a BURNING DESIRE or the thoughts will
just be WANTS. He will refer back to these 6 Steps several times in the
following chapters.

The 6 Steps are:

   1. Determine the exact amount You DESIRE.
   2. Determine exactly what You will give for that amount.
   3. Establish a date.
   4. Create a definite plan and begin at once.
   5. Put the 4 items above in a clear concise plan.
   6. Read that plan twice daily, morning and evening. See and believe You will
      achieve it.

To develop the faith, one must say their PERFECTLY CRAFTED self-talk 500-1000
times a day.

I'm grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for having a BURNING DESIRE to create a
way to help others be successful. Mentoring For Free has helped many thousands
of people to be successful in the last 12+ years. And this Mentoring For Free
system will continue to help 100,000s of people for many decades. Thank You
Linda and Michael Dlouhy for Your efforts that have made Mentoring For Free so
unique in the social media world.

I'm grateful to the members of each training call. Each call is designed per
Napoleon Hill's recommendation, a master mind group. Thank You to each of You
for Your participation.
