BOOK LIGHTS: “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill

“It is a well-known fact that one comes, finally, to believe whatever one repeats to one’s self, whether the statement be true or false. If a man repeats a lie over and over, he will eventually accept the lie as truth. Moreover, he will believe it to be the truth. Every man is what he is because of the dominating thoughts which he permits to occupy his mind. Thoughts which a man deliberately places in his own mind, and encourages with sympathy, and with which he mixes any one or more of the emotions, constitute the motivating forces which direct and control his every movement, act and deed!”

This is as true now as it was when written in 1937! I would add that we don’t even have to be the originators of the thoughts/beliefs for us to embrace them. If someone outside of us tells us something over and over we will come to accept it as true, regardless of its veracity. Be very careful of your thoughts and beliefs, especially those that originate outside your self. Don’t let any garbage in!
