The power of a desire document
This page needs a major update, as my desire document is something like one and a half year old now and the things that have been happening, especially recently but also relatively shortly after I wrote the first version, are incredible.
Maybe a short note on how I made mine:
- I wrote down the results of the six steps below.
- I evaluated it over a period of a few weeks.
- I made a draft ‘readable version’ of a little less than an A4/letter size page.
- I started reading it aloud twice a day.
- I made adjustments during a period of about one week or so until it read good, until reading it felt good.
- Then I started reading it aloud twice a day as indicated by Napoleon Hill (and I guess other people).
Then, over time, I made adjustments, as things changed or the things written just didn’t feel ‘right’ anymore. And no, I never really downgraded the document, rather the opposite.
And yes, I can promise you, amazing things will happen if you follow the things written in this page.
What is a desire document
We invented the term ‘desire document’ as the document to be created from the six steps in the chapter desire in Think and Grow Rich. The document or text that is to be read aloud two times a day, in the morning and the evening. The document is intended for autosuggestion and we can confirm that it is very powerful, unimaginable powerful, so be careful what you write in there. It will probably, or maybe even certain, become your reality one day.
The six steps of desire documents
A desire document is a written statement about ones definite purpose or a goal or ones goals based on the six steps that turn desire into gold according to Napoleon Hill:
- Fix in your min the exact amount of money you desire (or your goal or goals). It is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money”. Be definite as to the amount (or specific as about the goal). There is a psychological reason for definiteness.
- Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money or the goal you desire. There is no such reality as “something for nothing” in life.
- Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire or the goal you want to have reached.
- Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
- Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire or the goal or goals you want to achieve, name the time limit for its acquisition or achievement, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate the money or how you want to achieve your goal.
- Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. As you read – see and feel and believe yourself already in possession of the money or having achieved your goal or goals.
