How a Scrubbing Board is Changing a Life

Each week the Mentoring for Free Mastermind Group reads one chapter of the classic, Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and then we share our thoughts. Here is a lesson submitted by one of the members. His life is continually improving as a result of his participation.


Chapter 14

The Sixth Sense
The Door to the Temple of Wisdom

Submitted by Larry Unruh

Well Michael, I have to say, I am amazed, or inspired is a much more fitting word.

I had only read a couple pages and I had to stop and take a good look at myself, what I have become, and how the choices I have made brought me to this point in my life.

Stunning how all of the answers to owning my life all lie within the same simple steps I once took in destroying the same precious life.

As I look back over my life and what I have been through, I can remember as a child never getting much attention from anyone unless it were anger, usually my parents own personal misery and anger that they chose to share with their child.

By the time I was old enough for school my mind was encrypted with my parents state of mind.

I stayed totally to myself all the way through the eighth grade. I was so judgmental that I don't think I ever totally agreed with anyone. I just did not fit in with anyone and was scared of everyone.

In 9th grade I finally met some people a few years older than me who paid attention to me. They must have liked me, they actually talked to me and wanted to be around me.

This was great! These new friends had a lot of older friends and most of them had their own cars, lived on their own or with roommates and some even got married.

I found myself dreaming of a life like the friends I had. Well, that dream came true. I would lie awake every night and think about being on my own, getting
married, having a really cool car and never having kids to put through the misery I went through.

By age 16 I was married. Six months later I bought a 1968 Camaro.

Today, at nearly 33 years old I still, have no kids of my own. I have step children, none of my own.

Today, through the Mental Cleanse and persistence and Desire, I am growing into a prosperity conscious person and becoming a critical thinker.

I have many friends here in this group. Several of these friends are people who inspire me. I want to be like these people and I want to attract the same like minded people into my life.

I truly look up to my friends here in MFF. I think every day about these people and things they have in their life and I have a Burning Desire to be like they are.

I have taken many steps to do and be like my friends whom I look up to. Each and every day that passes I see, and feel changes in my thoughts, my feelings and my relationships.

Once again I must say, I find it stunning how all ofthe answers to owning my life all lie within the same simple steps I once took in destroying the same precious

I'm not sure if this gets the point through but, I do know that through persistence, practice, and commitment to the principles in this book, and the support of this
awesome Team I am well on my way to owning my life and never again placing thought in all the wrong people.

It's a matter of choice, it's a matter of thought, I WILL OWN MY LIFE!!!

Thank You Michael, Linda, and Friends

Your Friend

Hello Michael,

I just wanted to send a quick note to say THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I believe when someone inspires you to become more, to become a better person a part of them is instilled with in you.

Michael, I will carry that part of you in my heart for ever. I can not explain how much you mean to me. I am in tears just putting these words down for you to read.

For the first time in my life, I feel alive with emotion. Caring, Loving, never dieing emotion.

You mean more to me than those who brought me into this world and I truly mean that.

I will be doing everything I can to meet you in Tulsa.

Also Thank you so much for the Limu. No one has ever given me a gift of such value other than my wife.

I Love You! You are my lighthouse guiding me in from the storm I have weathered for 32 years.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

Napoleon HIll's Self-Confidence Formula

As you probably know & will agree, we prosper in our finances and in our health to the degree we prosper in our souls (minds, wills & emotions). Thus, reading empowering books & other information is vital to success.

One very empowering book to read is the classic by Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich. In Chapter 2, Mr. Hill has a formula he calls the Self-Confidence Formula. When you say it daily as he suggested, over a period of time you will start to believe it and own it. So allow me to share it with you.

First, I know I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I DEMAND of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment and I here and now promise to render such action.

Second, I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward physical action and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.

Third, I know through the principle of auto-suggestion any desire I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it, therefore, I will devote 10 minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.

Fourth, I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, and I will never stop until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.

Fifth, I fully realize that no wealth or position will long endure unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, every activity and transaction I engage in will benefit all whom it affects. I am succeeding by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use and the cooperation of other people. I am inducing others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others. I am eliminating hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness and cynicism by developing love for all humanity because I know a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I am causing others to believe in me because I believe in them and in myself.

I am signing my name to this formula, committing it to memory, and repeating it aloud once a day with full FAITH it influences my THOUGHTS and ACTIONS so I become a self-reliant and successful person.
