In his masterwork Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote the following: "When Henley wrote the prophetic lines, 'I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul,' he should have informed us that we are the masters of our fate, the captains of our souls because we have the power to control our thoughts. He should have told us that our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds and, by means with which no man is familiar, these 'magnets' attract us to the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts."
Hill went on to say "...these principles...are the invention of no one man. The principles have worked for many men. You can put them to work for your own enduring benefit."
...and from page 49 of Think and Grow Rich... "When faith is blended with thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into it's spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer...repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith...any impulse of thought which is repeatedly passed on to the subconscious mind is, finally, accepted and acted upon by the subconscious mind which proceeds to translate that impulse into it's physical equivalent by the most practical procedure available."
This is what Dr. Wayne Dyer says about it..."[T]he Law of Attraction works when you surround yourself with people who are on a spiritual path similar to your own. Remember, this law states that like is attracted to like so you attract Source energy to you by being like it. Similarly, when you're continually in the company of low-energy, angry, depressed, shaming, hateful people, you'll probably find life a little more challenging." (Dr. Wayne Dyer, "Inspiration", Hay House Books).
The following passage is taken from Joel Osteen "Your Best Life Now"...
"[Y]our own wrong thinking can keep you from God's best. You, too, may have assumed that you have already peaked, that you've reached your limits in life, that you will never be more successful. 'I'll never achieve significance, do something meaningful, or enjoy the good things in life that I've seen others enjoy.' Sad to say, you are exactly right...unless you are willing to change your thinking. That's why the first step to living life at your full potential is to enlarge your vision. To live your best life now, you must start looking at life through eyes of faith, seeing yourself rising to new levels. See your business taking off. See your marriage restored. See your family prospering. See your dreams coming to pass. You must conceive it and believe it is possible if you ever hope to experience it. To conceive it, you must have an image on the inside of the life you want to live on the outside. This image has to become a part of you, in your thoughts, your conversation, deep down in your subconscious mind, in your actions, in every part of your being." (Joel Osteen, Your Best Life Now, Hachette Book Group, New York, 2004).
