Thoughts are things

Everything man creates begins in the form of thought. Napoleon Hill in his book “Think and Grow Rich” writes that thoughts are things. Our daily thinking shapes our character, environment around us and also our future.

In the words of William James, the founder of modern Psychology, we are the sum total of our thoughts. Mind is the instrument which acts as the receiving and broadcasting station for thoughts.

In order to understand how our minds works which should first know about “Paradigm”. Bob Proctor, the author of the book “You Were Born Rich” explains paradigm very beautifully.

Our mind can be divided in into two parts; the conscious or rational part and the subconscious or irrational part. We think consciously and what we think on daily basis is stored in our subconscious. The stored thoughts in the subconscious are expressed through our body and that is the reason thoughts based on fear, false beliefs and superstitions express itself in the body as social anxiety and other stressful behaviors.

Negative thoughts attract negative conditions. Mind wants to be engaged and it should be engaged. So it is necessary to engage yourself in positive thoughts otherwise negative thoughts will occupy it automatically.

You attract what you fear. Normal fear is good but abnormal fear will ruin your life. Our society is plagued by negative thinking. Most of our thoughts are based on superstitions and false beliefs. The collective negative thoughts result in an irreparable defects in the society.

Why it is that so many good, kind religious people suffer the tortures of the damned in their mind and body? Why is it that so many immoral and irreligious people succeed and prosper and enjoy radiant health? The answer is in the thinking patterns of the individual. If the dominating thoughts of the mind are about prosperity, success, happiness, and perfect health than sub conscious mind will produce these results in the real life.

Everyone wants success but very few know what success is. Earl Nightingale was one of the most prolific thinker of his time. He said, “Success is the progressive realization of the worthy ideal”. A definite purpose accompanied by persistence, burning desire, and faith will bring success. According to Napoleon Hill, “persistence is to success what carbon is to steel”.

The miracle working powers of your subconscious mind will not work if the dominating thoughts of your mind are negative. You should make it sure that dominating thoughts of your mind are positive. The major emotions are the emotion of love, desire, and faith.

Thoughts without emotions have no value. Mere repetition of the words without emotions will not work as it will not enter your subconscious. Thoughts backed by emotions will translate it into its physical counterpart.
