How Thoughts Become Things


Recommended Posts



One of the central concepts in the book, "Think and Grow Rich," is that thoughts are things.

The second central concept is the idea of the mastermind group.

Unlike many other "law of attraction" type books, which are based on metaphysical thinking and philosophical ideas, Think and Grow Rich was reverse engineered.

Napoleon Hill talked to hundreds of successful people to see why they were successful.

This is where he got the idea that "thoughts are things."

Of course, many people misunderstand this.

They think that just thinking a thought will magically transform it into a thing.

But the ultra successful people he talked to actually turned their thoughts into things.

Hill should have said that thoughts are POTENTIALLY things.

It's the long, drawn out process of TURNING thoughts INTO things that separates the dreamers from the doers.

On one hand, this seems common and ordinary.

On the other hand, it's incredibly metaphysical and mind boggling.

Once upon a time, there was only humans and animals.

Animals had to chase animals, kill them, wear their skin as clothes and use their bones as tools.

Pretty barbaric!

Now look at all the stuff we have!

Every single thing that exists was once a THOUGHT.

And it took a group of people, thinking that thought, to turn it into a thing.

This happens every single day all around the world.

Every company that makes stuff has long product development cycles.

It takes years to go from the "thought" stage to the "thing" stage.

This is what they mean when they say that genius is "1% inspiration and 99% perspiration."

Anybody can dream.

It takes a LOT of time, effort and persistence to turn a thought into a thing.

It's usually not something one can do alone.

You might even say this is our PURPOSE as humans.

To join these mastermind groups and take part in the "thought into things" process.

Many people struggle to find their place.

Many people do everything they can to AVOID the "struggle."

But the struggle is where it's at.

Humans were meant to STRIVE for greatness.

Not to just "show up" and be GIVEN greatness.

YOU were put here to CREATE something.

Not just accept something that somebody else decides to give you.

What will you create?

What thoughts will you turn into things?

How will you be remembered hundreds of years from now?
