In Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill tells the story of Mr. Darby, who gave up searching for gold in his mine and later, three feet from where he stopped, someone else found one of the richest veins of gold in Colorado.
Mr. Darby goes into the insurance industry, and Hill quotes him as saying, “I stopped three feet from the gold last time, but I will never stop because they say, ‘no,’ when I ask them to buy insurance.”
What does he mean by that?
Change the Structure of the Thought that Caused the Problem
If you are getting a result that you don’t want, you’re likely to conclude that in order to change the result, you have to do something different.
You find something different to do, and the new thing may change some surface result marginally, but it’s not going to take you from where you are now to the expansive growth that you’re looking for.
Einstein said that we can’t solve a problem with the same thinking that created the problem. If you mentally try to work your way out of a problem, you’re using the same thought structure that created it. You need to change the structure of the thought or belief that caused the problem. When you change the structure, you change the result.
You transform the problem by manifesting something completely different. That is like alchemy. The alchemy stories weren’t about turning literal lead into literal gold. They were about transforming to a higher level.
If you have something in your life that you don’t like, let’s say you don’t have enough money. Instead of saying, “I don’t have enough money, sales or prospects,” and then trying to work out of that problem, come from the standpoint of the money you desire already being here. When you do that, you begin to change the structure of the belief from lack of money to plenty of money. The ideas and inspirations that come to you then emerge from a completely different belief, and your result changes.
That is the secret Mr. Darby was talking about, His prospects’ no’s weren’t going to be his problem. He would transform every poor result into the one that he wanted by changing the structure of thought that caused the no’s to begin with.
Leapfrog from Desire to Manifestation
Try this: take any result and think back to the starting point, the decision or belief that eventually birthed the result. Now, on a piece of paper, indicate that starting point and then skip 6 to 12 inches and write the result. In between, list all of the actions, circumstances and situations that took place to create the result.
Remove everything in the middle, and you’re left with what I call the structure, the starting point, the cause, as well as the result. What if you could leapfrog from the structure to the result?
I hear your arguments about time and distance, but consider this: we now can send information instantaneously, when it used to take a long time, because someone asked, “What if we could send information instantly?”
People can bridge the gaps of success immediately. In the Experience the Reality of Success seminar, we teach people how to transform and transmute the time between desire and manifestation. As they practice, the time periods get shorter and shorter until they become instantaneous.
As you change the structure of your belief, you become a representative of that change of belief and you awaken people. You may think that the business you’re in is the overall purpose of your life, but it isn’t. There is a much higher purpose for you.
That purpose will be shown to you as you step into it.
