Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
“Fear of poverty is a state of mind, nothing else! But it is sufficient to destroy one's chances of achievement in any undertaking.
This fear paralyzes the faculty of reason, destroys the faculty of imagination, kills off self-reliance, undermines enthusiasm, discourages initiative, leads to uncertainty of purpose, encourages procrastination, wipes out enthusiasm and makes self-control an impossibility. It takes the charm from one's personality, destroys the possibility of accurate thinking, diverts concentration of effort; it masters persistence, turns the will power into nothingness, destroys ambition, beclouds the memory and invites failure in every conceivable form; it kills love and assassinates the finer emotions of the heart, discourages friendship and invites disaster in a hundred forms, leads to sleeplessness, misery and unhappiness- and all this despite the obvious truth that we live in a world of overabundance of everything the heart could desire, excepting lack of definite purpose.”
ACTION STEP FOR TODAY:
How depressing was that? Reading all those things. Looking at all those it makes it clear if you do not have a definiteness of purpose it would be a good time to figure one out. As well as beginning to control your thoughts and fears. It's an everyday battle!
