Lesson 7: Build a Positive Mental Attitude — Positive mental attitude is the right mental attitude in all circumstances. Lesson 9: Enforce Self-Discipline — Self-Discipline means taking possession of your own tongue, emotions, mental attitude, dieting and fasting, politics and Religion and your mind.
Lesson Think Accurately — Accurate thinking is based on two major fundamentals — inductive reasoning based on the assumption of unknown facts and hypotheses and deductive reasoning based on known facts or what are believed to be facts. Teamwork and cooperation is a priceless asset you can acquire in proportion to your giving as well as going the extra mile, personal initiative, attitude, and enthusiasm.
Lesson Learn from Adversity and Defeat — Individual success can be in exact proportion of the scope of defeat an individual has experienced and mastered. Lesson Maintain Sound Health — Health begins with conscious choices and keeping your energy level up by eating healthy food and participating in physical exercise.
Lesson Budget Your Time and Money — Taking time everyday to move closer to your purpose and saving money to ensure steady financial growth. Not sure where your time is going? Find out here. Without a purpose and a plan, people drift aimlessly through life. The Mastermind principle consists of an alliance of two or more minds working in perfect harmony for the attainment of a common definite objective. Success does not come without the cooperation of others.
Faith is a state of mind through which your aims, desires, plans and purposes may be translated into their physical or financial equivalent. Going the extra mile is the action of rendering more and better service than that for which you are presently paid.
When you go the extra mile, the Law of Compensation comes into play. It is the factor that determines whether one is liked or disliked by others. Personal initiative is the power that inspires the completion of that which one begins. It is the power that starts all action. No person is free until he learns to do his own thinking and gains the courage to act on his own.
Positive mental attitude is the right mental attitude in all circumstances. Success attracts more success while failure attracts more failure. Why Your Attitude Is Everything. Enthusiasm is faith in action.
It is the intense emotion known as burning desire. Self-discipline begins with the mastery of thought. If you do not control your thoughts, you cannot control your needs. Self-discipline calls for a balancing of the emotions of your heart with the reasoning faculty of your head.
The power of thought is the most dangerous or the most beneficial power available to man, depending on how it is used. As for the differences between the two versions, the revisions of the modern version consisted mainly of removing racial or sexist sounding language and adding modern commentary.
I appreciated some of the modern commentary, since many of the people or concepts referred to in Hill's original version from are no longer familiar to the modern reader. However, I found that the direct tampering with the original text had altered some of the meaning and message of Hill's writing more than I could find justifiable. Overall though I found the added commentary more helpful than I found the tampering of the original text unjustified, so I give the modern version a slight recommendation over the original one.
Third comes Hill's "Law of Success", a monster of a book with a total of more than pages to it. The principles of success outlined by Hill are all sound and true and the work he seems to have done to amass these principles into one book seems to have been enormous. However, the book didn't really need to be pages long since much of the supporting framework built around the principles is of questionable value.
Let me elaborate.
Although the book is filled to the brim with golden nuggets of wisdom, the constant barrage of Hill's personal pseudo-scientific ideas makes it a much harder read than it needs to be. This becomes especially evident in the very first chapter "The Mastermind" , which by its very obscurity defends the whole book against the risk of being read by the more pragmatic and scientifically minded reader.
Some of Hill's ideas and suggestions about what he calls "mind energy" and "mind chemistry" and his constant referring to telepathy and mind vibrations are in fact quite ridiculous. Having read the revised and updated 21st century version of this book, I wonder why none of that nonsense was removed.
The multitudes of pseudo-scientific theories, most of which seem to have been conjured up in the mind of Hill himself, were highly speculative at the time of writing in the s and are just plain silly today. Interestingly enough, Hill claims that his only truly original contribution to all the laws and principles of success is the principle of that very same mastermind alliance, yet here is exactly where he steers off course the most.
Although seemingly starting out as touting the positives of teamwork, Hill then goes downhill by attributing ethereal attributes to it and claiming things like vibrations of the mind moving through the ether from the thoughts of one person to another, telepathic abilities manifesting themselves in a collective mastermind of harmonious unity and similar nonsense.
It feels like Hill read a few sensationalist pseudo-scientific articles during his day and then, without even trying to confirm whether any of it was even remotely true, went on a tangent, extending and elaborating on these completely nonsensical theories and writing pages upon pages about them.
