The following is an excerpt from Napoleon Hill’s book Magic Seeds for Success:
“The Formula for Success simply in three words: Conceive, Believe, Achieve! Conceive begins the process. It is an invitation to dream and to envision whatever it is we would like to manifest in our life. Conception is the very beginning of the birthing process, and it is essential in order to achieve whatever outcome that we set our sights on for the future.
Believe is stage two of the process. This is where the creative juices are turned up a notch and we begin to align our emotions with the desire. Head and heart become one as we move toward manifesting our goal in the physical world. It can now be both clearly seen and felt, and the final logical step will enable us to achieve the intended outcome.
Achieve is the final stage of the process. Action is taken to ensure that the goal is drawn into the physical realm of our world and step by step we are led to the creation of whatever we envisioned at the onset. This is a critical stage, because many people never combine the action with the thought to create the doing. Without action on our part nothing will materialize. The achievement process is contingent on action taken.”
