Since learning language is a skill considered more mental than physical, I thought I would share ways to shape your thinking for success. 

This is by no means, any superficial fluff of inspiration or advice as to how you should feel about things. 

It’s much bigger than that. 

I’ve been reading an alternative version of the famous book ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill. The version I’m reading is from the author Dennis Kimbro called, ‘Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice: A guide to success for Black Americans’, which interestingly enough has a Japanese translation.

I know neither Napoleon Hill or Dennis Kimbro, but what they have given me is absolutely pure gold!

They express the following truth: 

The only thing you have control over in this entire world is your mind. So act like it!

This seems obvious, but the truth is, we spend more time trying to control people and circumstances more than our own mind. 

“If you fail to control your own mind, you may be sure you will control nothing else.”

Circumstances like your intelligence, body, race and whatever else, are things we worry about so much that instead of controlling our mind in the direction of our wishes, we allow our mind to control us to go in that direction:

What’s that direction? 

The Path of Least Resistance. We know where that leads us…the dumpster. So let’s fight tooth and nail against the direction the mind tries to steer us towards.

The concept of ‘growing rich’ does not exclusively pertain to money. It could be English skills, relationships, health, or whatever you consider important.

That’s where this concept of ‘Think and Grow Rich’ comes from.

Diligently controlling your thinking will undoubtedly give you riches on whatever you focus on. 

Although written in 1992, this book is more relevant than ever. How often are on your phone because of habit, as opposed to deliberately using it at a designed time?

If you spend hours on SNS, which over 90% of people with a smartphone do, I could argue that you are not in full control of your mind. I’m not judging you, I’m just pointing out the probable culprit to your inability to achieve some of your longest held goals. Even though I don’t have any personal SNS’s, I still find myself listening audiobooks out of habit, or watching YouTube. 

I too have some major mind control work to do. 

So now, what’s the best way to control your mind?

Understanding and utilizing the ‘Mental Laws’ of the world. 

I’m going to write a series of posts about what this book says and how you can view them in order to understand them better. True understanding leads to real action.

Mental laws are: “… great truths that govern all thinking, just as there are fundamental laws the rule the physical universe.”

Just like you wouldn’t try to violate the Law of Gravity, by jumping out of a 20-story-building to get to the bottom, you should work in harmony with these laws. 

Mental Law #1: “What You Think Upon, Grows” 

I will define this clearly and give you relevant examples, which are tied to modern day life and English success in the next blog.

If you wish you can read the English or Japanese versions of ‘Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice: A Guide to Success for Black Americans’  by clicking either language.
