Literary minds have associated ‘Infinite Intelligence’ with different sorts of concepts. Interestingly, a few associate it with God, hinting when a human mind constantly fishes out, God presents with a solution.

In his book, ‘Think and Grow Rich,’ Napoleon Hill states that the human mind is like a gold mine. What he means by saying ‘gold mine’ is a million-dollar question. Although he vividly paints a picture of how there’s a link between ‘Infinite Intelligence’ and riches.

Minds are connected and when a mind constantly browses the web (of minds), it receives some kind of communication out of nowhere — is what Mr. Hill terms ‘Infinite Intelligence’. Literary minds have associated ‘Infinite Intelligence’ with different sorts of concepts. Interestingly, a few associate it with God, hinting when a human mind constantly fishes out, God presents with a solution. Fair enough to me.

Now, let’s analyze and start from the beginning as to how can a human mind achieve what it wants to achieve. In other words, the human mind is like a gold mine, but how! In this piece, I will try to focus on the ‘how’ part of the riddle.

Back in the day during my school days, I was quite fascinated by how one accumulates riches out of thin air. There were many I knew who dared to become rich. Truly, most of them succeeded. Remarkably, the most common trait I happened to witness in them was persistence; the habit of knocking out temporary failures. Truly, none of them had a penny to make a penny.

Fast forward to my days at a university, I continued to learn about wealth accumulation methods, but to no avail. I was trying to connect the dots, but there was a link missing. Several years later, a colleague of mine mentioned ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’. The title sounded catchy to me at that moment. Given how my finances were tumbling down, I was preoccupied and did not pay heed to what my colleagues were talking about. However, eventually, I read the book almost two years after. A fruitful experience, an eye-opener! While reading this book, I learned about ‘Think and Grow Rich’ as the author, Robert Kiyosaki, lauded Mr. Hill’s work. It caught my attention. Naturally!

Long story short, I read what Mr. Hill wrote in this classic book. The most startling concept that I continue to cherish is ‘the power of purpose’. Your purpose notifies your brain every single day. As a result, it becomes a ‘burning desire’. Your ‘burning desire’ sends auto-suggestions to your brain constantly. The subconscious mind creates a mental form of your purpose, which then after repeated auto-suggestions calls on ‘Infinite Intelligence’. Then and there, you find a solution to your problem. And soon the physical equivalent of your purpose takes shape. Remember, persistence pays.

Back to my story, as of now, I can confidently say that these books have positively impacted my financial well-being.

The concepts discussed in this piece are originally talked about in the said books.
