Think and Grow Rich's 13 Principles

STUDY
PLAY
Desire
The Starting Point of All Achievement.
"Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. Only by doing can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a BURNING DESIRE TO WIN, essential to success."
Faith
Visualization of, and Belief in Attainment of Desire.
"FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer."
Auto-Suggestion
The Medium for Influencing the Subconscious Mind.
"AUTO-SUGGESTION is the agency of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his sub-conscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind."
Specialized Knowledge
Personal Experiences or Observations
"Before you can be sure of your ability to transmute DESIRE into its monetary equivalent, you will require SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE of the service, merchandise, or profession which you intend to offer in return for fortune."
Imagination
The Workshop of the Mind.
"MAN'S ONLY LIMITATION, within reason, LIES IN HIS DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF HIS IMAGINATION. He has not yet reached the apex of development in the use of his imaginative faculty. He has merely discovered that he has an imagination and has commenced to use it in a very elementary way."
Organized Planning
The Crystallization of Desire into Action
"Every plan you adopt, in your endeavor to accumulate wealth, should be the joint creation of yourself and every other member of your "Master Mind" group. You may originate your own plans, either in whole or in part, but SEE THAT THOSE PLANS ARE CHECKED, AND APPROVED BY THE MEMBERS OF YOUR "MASTER MIND" ALLIANCE."
Decision
The Mastery of Procrastination.
"Analysis of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes well beyond the million dollar mark, disclosed the fact that every one of them had the habit of REACHING DECISIONS PROMPTLY, and of changing these decisions SLOWLY, if, and when they were changed."
Persistence
The Sustained Effort Necessary to Induce Faith. "PERSISTENCE is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting DESIRE into its monetary equivalent. The basis of persistence is the POWER OF WILL."
Power of the Master Mind
The Driving Force.
"Analyze the record of any man who has accumulated a great fortune, and many of those who have accumulated modest fortunes, and you will find that they have either consciously, or unconsciously employed the "Master Mind" principal."
The Mystery of Sex Transmutation
"So strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it. When harnessed, and redirected along other lines, this motivating force maintains all of its attributes of keenness of imagination, courage, etc., which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other profession or calling, including, of course, the accumulation of riches."
The Subconscious Mind
The Connecting Link.
"The SUBCONSCIOUS MIND consists of a field of consciousness, in which every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind through any of the five senses, is classified and recorded, and from which thoughts may be recalled or withdrawn as letters may be taken from a filing cabinet."
The Brain
A Broadcasting and Receiving Station for Thought.
"Operation of your mental "broadcasting" station is a comparatively simple procedure. You have but three principles to bear in mind, and to apply, when you wish to use your broadcasting station - the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, CREATIVE IMAGINATION, and AUTO-SUGGESTION. The stimuli through which you put these three principles into action have been described - the procedure begins with DESIRE."
The Sixth Sense
The Door to the Temple of Wisdom. "The sixth sense defies description! It cannot be described to a person who has not mastered the other principles of this philosophy, because such a person has no knowledge, and no experience with which the sixth sense may be compared."
