No one may be sure of success without the ability to organize his thinking habits.  Before discussing the organization of thoughts, let us examine thought itself.  Thought is a form of energy that is distributed through the brain, but it has one peculiar quality unknown in connection with all other forms of energy.

No one may be sure of success without the ability to organize his thinking habits.  Before discussing the organization of thoughts, let us examine thought itself.  Thought is a form of energy that is distributed through the brain, but it has one peculiar quality unknown in connection with all other forms of energy.


Thought can be controlled and directed toward the attainment of anything man may desire.  In fact thought is the only thing over which any person has complete, unchallenged control.  The system of control is so complete that no one may penetrate the mind of another without his consent, although this system of protection often is so loosely guarded that one's mind may be entered at will by any person skilled in the art of thought interpretation.
Many people not only leave their minds wide open for others to enter and interpret their thoughts, but they voluntarily disclose the nature of their thoughts by unguarded expressions of speech and their personal conduct, their facial expression and the like.
Just about as safe as leaving the door to one's house unlocked, with all of one's valuables left inside the house, except that the loss of purely material things is as nothing compared with the loss one may suffer by leaving his mind open to entry by any stray tramp who may wish to go in and take possession.
You see, the habit of leaving one's mind open and unguarded not only permits other people to enter and become familiar with one's most private thoughts, but this habit permits all sorts of tramp thoughts, released from the minds of others, to enter one's mind.
That fact has apparently been established by men, but I have evidence of its existence, from my own personal experience.  Yes, one's mind is being constantly bombarded with the impulses of thought released from the minds of others.  Especially those with whom we come into close contact daily.
As I have stated before, one negative minded workman, if left to associate with other workmen, will pass on his negative thoughts to every person within the range of his influence, although he never speaks a word or makes a single move indicating his state of mind.  I have see this very thing happen so often that I could not be mistaken about it.
The chemistry of the brain is such that the mind power of a group of men can be organized so it functions as one unit of power only when there is perfect rapport between the minds of the individuals.  A group of men working together under the master mind principle, each of whom has so disciplined himself that he controls his thought habits, represents organized thought of the highest order.
As a matter of fact, there never can be full assurance of harmony in a master mind group unless each member of the group is so self-disciplined that he can control his own thoughts.  One can gain control over his thoughts by forming definite thought habits.  You know, of course, that when habits are once formed they function automatically, without any voluntary effort on the individual's part.
There is nothing difficult about the formation of habits. As a matter of fact the mind is constantly forming thought habits without the conscious knowledge of the individual, responding, as the mind does, to every influence that reaches it from one's daily environment.
Through self discipline one may switch the action of his mind from the response to the casual influences around him, to subjects of his own choice.  This is accomplished by setting up in the mind a definite motive, based on a definite purpose, and intensifying that purpose until it becomes an obsession.
Stating the matter differently, one may fill his mind with a definite purpose that is so interesting it leaves him no time or opportunity to dwell upon other subjects.  In this manner he forms definite thought habits.  The mind responds to whatever stimuli one feeds it. 
When a man is driven by a strong desire to achieve success in any given direction, his mind responds to that desire and forms definite thought habits connected with the attainment of that desire.
Everything man achieves begins with definiteness of purpose.  Name a single instance, if you can, where a man has achieved any form of success without a definite motive, based on a definite purpose, carried out through a definite plan.
But, you must remember that there is one more factor that must be considered in connection with definiteness of purpose.  The purpose must be expressed in terms of intense action.  Here is where the power of the emotions gives an account of itself. 
The emotional feeling of desire for the attainment of a definite purpose is the power that gives life and action to that purpose, and influences one to move on his own initiative.  To insure satisfactory results, one's definite purpose should be given obsessional proportions.  It should be backed by a burning desire for its attainment.
Desires of this sort take full possession of one's mind and keep it so fully occupied that it has no inclination or opportunity to entertain stray thoughts released by the minds of others.  There are other emotions with which he can stimulate his desire for material things.
Study the basic motives and you will observe that any sort of a desire is emotional in its nature.  There is the desire for material riches, and it is a rather universal and well developed desire with most people.  The desire for personal expression leading to recognition and fame.  The desire for self preservation and the desire for freedom of body and mind.
All of one's emotions, including, of course, the emotion of love, can be converted to the attainment of any desired end.  The desire for the accumulation of material riches may, for example, be combined with one's love for the woman of his choice, where the desire for money is associated with one's desire to provide the woman of his choice with the comforts that money will buy. 
In such a circumstance one would have a double motive for the accumulation of money.  Hear this, the motive of fear, for example, often serves as a powerful inspiration to action.  To benefit by it one has only to control his action habits, until those habits become automatic.
Habits become fixed by some unknown law of nature which causes the impulses of thought to be taken over by the subconscious mind and voluntarily carried out.   This law does not make habits.  It only fixes them so they operate automatically.  The individual begins a habit by repeating a thought or a physical act.
After a time, depending upon the emotional feeling that goes into the thoughts one's thought habits are taken over and followed voluntarily.  And may I remind you that the control of habit forming is an important part of organized thinking.  If you overlook this fact, you will have missed the most important thing in this write up.
You see, an individual may set up any sort of habits he chooses, go through them for a while, very much in the same manner that one would go through a physical culture setting up exercise, after which the habits will become automatically perpetuated without his conscious attention to them.
That is an established fact.  It is one of the most important facts in the entire field of mental phenomena, for it is literally the medium by which an individual may take possession of his own mind.  Think that over before you pass on, and remember that the man who uncovers the secret by which nature fixes man's habits, will have made a stupendous contribution.
See you at the top of success.
