I have been reading this great new book that has been recommended by several of the previous authors I have been inspired by. The name of the book is "Think & Grow Rich," by Napoleon Hill. The original book was written in 1945, and speaks of the power of the mind, and positive thinking! The author studies and reports of some of the most successful people in his time such as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John D. Rockefeller, and many more. These men explain their thinking and how they made their dreams a reality.
I am loving the book so far, it goes hand in hand with the Law of Attraction. I am just so interested in the fact that all of these successful people are ALL saying the same thing! They are saying the thoughts of the mind, what we choose to believe, and our desires. All of these people know the secret to life, and they are sharing it to anyone who will listen and try for themselves to start changing our own realities. I believe it, and that is why I am sharing the message with others. I have seen results in my own life on a regular basis depending on my thoughts. Positive thoughts bring positive things. Negative thoughts bring more negative things. We can change the world based on our thinking. We can change our bodies. We can change our experiences.
One very interesting thing I was reading in this book was a scientific study about a man who actually killed himself through his thoughts! They call it "Suggestive Suicide," where a man could commit suicide through negative suggestions, just as if it were any other means. The most famous case is from a man named Joseph Grant who worked for a bank, and without permission borrowed a large sum of money. He lost the money through gambling. When the bank directors were starting to look into the accounts and noticed the missing money, he left the bank and rented out a hotel room. When the police found him three days later he was lying in bed moaning and wailing. He was repeating the same phrase over and over. "My God, this will kill me! I can't stand the disgrace!" In a short time he was dead. The case was pronounced as a "Mental Suicide."
I just had to share that medical case. I just found the topic to be amazing. It just goes to show another way on how powerful our minds can be and what we are really capable of. We are capable of so many things. If we believe in something then it is true for us. What makes some one's dreams come true? It is our attitude. It is our thoughts. Change your thinking and you will change your reality. Change your life experience.
