Self-Confidence Formula


Formula for Self – Confidence

  1. I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I DEMAND of myself persistent, aggresive,  continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.
  2. 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 pictures of this person.
  3. I know though the principle of auto-suggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression though some practial means of attaining the object back of it, therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demading of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.
  4. I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, and I will never stop trying, until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.
  5. I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.

I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day with full FAITH that it will gradually influence my THOUGHTS and ACTIONS so that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.

    I think you should credit the person who actually wrote this rather than leaving it blank as though you wrote it yourself.

  3. There is no doubt that I give Napoleon Hill credit for everything on this site. I apologize if you felt deceived. I just put some of his nuggets online so that people can get to them, including me. I gain nothing from doing this except further instilling these principles and thought patters into my conscious.
