Napoleon Hill wrote Think and Grow Rich based on the simplicity of accessing the subconscious mind through commitment of desire, enthusiasm, faith, and gratitude.

There is a process of planting positive seeds of expectation into the sub-conscious mind. One can truly “think and grow” by simply documenting one’s intentions into a personal journal each new sunrise, affirming the statement to the universe, and visualizing its manifestation with the inner eye.

Key #1

An Affirmation is a positive statement made in the present tense and accepted in the conscious mind as a seed to fully blossom in the garden of the subconscious mind.

My affirmation: “I awaken all senses to universal attunement each new sunrise and greet the heavens with love and light”.

Key # 2

A Promise is a personal commitment to completion of an action, deed, event, or behavior

My promise: “I will live this day as if it is my last and cherish each new breath and heartbeat”.

Key #3

A Goal is a visualized aim, with objectives, intentions, an end result expectation

My goals: “I nourish all seeds of creative thought with faith, hope, belief in the value of all dreams and visions”

Key #4

Visualization is a mental picture imprinted in the mind’s eye and repeated incessantly to tie imagination to reality.

My vision: “I see wonderful blue skies and sunny days with every aspect of my life”.

Key #5

Acknowledgment is the expression of appreciation and gratitude or the recognition of the existence of truth of something

My acknowledgement: “I chant songs of thanks and praise as my grateful heart fuels appreciation for all gifts bestowed by the unlimited universe of creative energy”.

Key #6

Belief is a mental attitude of acceptance or assent without the intellectual knowledge required to guarantee its truth

My belief: “My mind becomes empowered by constant repetition of positive thoughts and the best is yet to come”.

Key #7

Self – the inner personal image (positive or negative) one has of this entity called “me”.

My self: “I am a positive powerful being blessed with talents that deserve to be richly rewarded”.

Choose one or all seven statements each day to awaken your sunrise with affirmations, visualizations, and a grateful heart attuned to the universe.

Find that quiet place, state your power thoughts, record them onto a journal. “Ask and you shall receive”.

The universe will acknowledge your positive vibrations a thousand fold!


I experienced the miracle of the "seed and soil" having grown up in the farmlands of Texas. My first sales business was selling flower seeds door to door at 8 years of age. I have owned several businesses and constantly use motivational resources to continually "sharpen the saw". Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich is my favorite treatise on personal development along with Raymond Holliwell's Working With the Law. See more at:
