The Sixth Sense


The thirteenth step to riches, referred to the portion of the subconscious mind that is the creative imagination, and the receiving set.  Understanding this principle comes only through meditation.  One must master the twelve proceeding principles before they are ready to fully grasp this powerful principle without skepticism.


This can take years, sometimes decades to master. Napoleon Hill mentions that many individuals who acquire vast wealth do not reach full stride an achievement till after the age of fifty. Based on my own life experiences along with others around me, I can relate to this.


Desire is the first step to this journey, which I have had for decades. I have had some success, but I have stumbled many times, which has set me back. Much of this is due to me not trusting my gut instincts. I always have started out safe and conscious on my endeavors. I keep my nose to the grindstone and move along. Then I have gone of path: I become distracted by other opportunities are presented. Am sold the dream that the money will come quicker there with less effort.  In other words I get pulled in a different direction and my focus drops and the setback happens. I have not trusted my gut instinct that I may be buying into a bill of false goods.


That has been the case till now. Finally I have realized and accepted that few will get something for nothing, and those that do will take it for granted and lose it quickly. Just look at most of the folks who have won the lottery. Many come from rags and get rich overnight. The negative side is most are bankrupt with a few years. They don’t plan, seek financial advice from qualified professionals, spend every dollar, and stay in perspective.  This is the case for most simply because they did not learn or master the thirteen principles and trust their instincts.  There is no free lunch, which the lottery appears to be. 


Folks that attain vast wealth and keep it master the principles with the sixth sense being the final piece to the puzzle. Henry Ford and Warren Buffet did and both remained wealthy in more ways, not just money.  


The concept is no different in Network Marketing. Most don’t achieve anything because they never begin the journey or learn the principles.  Some will achieve something: make a nice income and have some freedom. Then they will take their eye of of the ball. They spend every dollar and beyond, and don’t seek proper counsel from the right people, and follow instinct. 


Lastly there are the few that make it and keep it. They never take their eye of the ball. They make the money, achieve the freedom, and they stay there. Simply because they follow the thirteen principles with the sixth sense being one. They surround themselves with the right people.  They have mentors and the like minded people around that keep them on track.
