In Tuesday's podcast (Terrific Tuesday or, as I call it this week - thanks to my friend, Gerry - "Turn-Around Tuesday") we begin a discussion of chapter 11 of the Napoleon Hill classic, "Think & Grow Rich".
The actual title of this chapter is, "The Mystery of Sex Transmutation".... huh?
Don't let the title scare you away. This is not some weird, psychic or sexually explicit discussion that takes place in this chapter. Bottom line, it's talking about "The Power of Love" - and we all know the power packed in that little four-letter word!
Just think about all of the things YOU have even been persuaded to do because of love - or, to be honest, - the thrill or promise or even expectation of some sort of sexual contact. It IS powerful, is it not?
The great thing about this chapter - as is true with the whole book - Napoleon Hill takes the time to explain what it is that he is talking about and even defines the terms that he uses - such as "transmute". Simply put, it is taking the energy from one source (sex/love) and "channeling" it into another use (drive for success, for example).
I'm always amazed when I read this book and realize how relevant it is even though it was written so many years ago! For example, we also very quickly went through the "Ten Mind Stimuli" - things that cause our minds to kick in to high gear and provoke such emotions as "enthusiasm" and "excitement" and, all ten of these can still easily been seen as just that - things that stimulate the mind!
Allow yourself to realize the POWER that you have within you even when fueled by the emotions that are fired by the POWER of LOVE!
We'll continue this discussion in tomorrow's podcast - read ahead!
And, as always...
"Make it an AWESOME Day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
