Chapter 14 

The Sixth Sense 







A supposed intuitive faculty giving awareness not explicable in terms of normal perception 


Napoleon Hill defines the SIXTH SENCE as through which Infinate Intelligence may and will communicate voluntarily, without any effort from, or demands by the individual. He, also, notes that it cannot be pinpointed by the brain. That intuition saves lives in split second decisions by the brain, hunches, working in a few seconds at a time. 

I’ve personally made many, many, many split seconds to save my life. For example,when I was 14, I was crossing my BMX bicycle across the highway. As I was crossing, I noticed a car coming at me at 50 mph on the highway. It seemed as though the car was moving in slow motion, I found myself peddling faster than the car. Then all of a sudden, the car sped up and hit me. Poor old lady. Needless to say she didn’t sleep that night. My right peddle caught the edge of the bumper, sling shotted me away fro the car, and I landed in tall grass. 

You know how badly I was injured? My right heal was swolled for two whole days! But it was sensitive for about a year. Intuition? An act of God? Guardian Angels? You decide. 

My bones were pliable due to a 9” growth spurt, during the summer of ‘85. 

In 2019 a car ran a stop sign as I was going 55 mph Infront of him on the highway. I remember something in my head sais,”Turn left!” I turned left. Stomped on my brakes and the car T-boned my sight side of my car, with his bumper lidged in-between my right passenger doors. I was heading straight for the driver, when I turned the steering wheel hard left. If I hadn’t listened to my intuition, I would have a dead driver on my conscience! He got out of his car and kicked his bumper across the road and said, “I just rreplaced that bumper!” I was thinking to mysef over what the 22-year-old kid said and was thinking to myself. “Well how are you doing! Am I ok??? We never got a scratch! We were wearing out seatbelts. The cop asked a dumb question, “I see a car seat, was there any kids in the car? I sarcatistically said, as there were no broken windows, “Oh! He’s just lodged in the window, that’s all.” 

In 1989 My exgirlfriend was driving my first car. Keep in mind, that it was before the seat belt law. She went 50 mph around the corner. My intuition said, “Grab her in a head lock and pull her under the dash!” As we were heading for the telephone pole. She got a headache from hitting her head on the rear view mirror and all I got was bruises on my arms. Her sister was in the back seat and got a hugh bruise on her knww from hitting the metal ash tray in the middle of the seat. 

That remeinds me of a quote from Joel Osteen, “The reason your rearview mirror is so small and your windshield is so large, is because what’s happened in your past is not near as important as what is happening in your future!” 

Words of wisdom to run your business. 

I could go on and on about my brushes with death, but I would be typing a book and the 8 o’clock call, is getting ready to start! 

If we can just harness that intuition, your business will take off in a new direction, and the possibilities are endless!
