Outwit Fear To Create Abundance


Hopefully by now you’ve read the classic Napolean Hill book, Think and Grow Rich. The final chapter of the book is entitled, “How to Outwit the Six Ghosts of Fear.” In this chapter, Hill names these six ghosts as:

. Fear of Poverty

. Criticism

. Ill Health

. Loss of Love

. Old Age, and

. Death


And, as if that were not enough, he reveals a seventh condition, which he says is “more deeply seated and more often fatal than all of the six fears.” This he calls “susceptibility to negative influences.”



Susceptibility to negative influences is more fatal than the six ghosts of fear.

Napolean Hill in Think and Grow Rich



The point of identifying these troublesome ideas is clear: when we seek to apply the Law of Circulation by declaring our good through prayer, meditation and affirmation, resistance arises from within us in the form of these hidden fears and susceptibilities.


This is what prevents us from moving forward and achieving our deepest desires. To get rid of it, we must be willing to acknowledge them, release them completely and consciously reject the possibility of them re-entering our daily thoughts.


Hill writes that if we neglect this inner work, we will forfeit our right to attain the object of our desires. An honest inventory includes “identifying patterns of complaining, fault-finding, sarcasm, indigestion, hopelessness, self-pity, lack of self-confidence and worry.” These are only examples of the kinds of activities that prevent us from achieving our most desired outcomes.


Join me in applying a proven method from reversing such limitations: Begin by declaring that you no longer indulge in the debilitation behaviors that you previously used for some limiting purpose. Reject our past behavior, saying “That was then, this is NOW.” Then, fill your mind with the object of your greatest desire, and declare this to be the truth of your life right now.

4 Ways To Claim Your Independence


I hope you’re having an energizing holiday spent with the people who matter most to you. The 4th of July is a day where we come together to celebrate our country and what it means to be American.


For me, the message of prosperity and freedom rings the most true. We live in a time where opportunity is plentiful and it’s more possible than ever to achieve your dreams. We have the liberty to choose our thoughts and dreams, as well as the freedom to pursue them.


What are you doing to create freedom and independence in your life?


In the spirit of 4th of July and the land of opportunity, here are 4 ways to claim your independence:


  1. Step Out of Your Comfort Zone. You’ve heard it said, “Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone.” Check out what I learned when I stepped out of my comfort zone in this blog post entitled Three Life Lessons You Can Learn From Skydiving.







  1. Join a Mastermind Group. Surrounding yourself with like-minded people will help you harness and maximize your success and guide you to prosperity. Listen to [this episode] of my Talk with Tom podcast on how to form a mastermind, and [this episode] to learn the benefits of being a part of one. Keep tabs on my website for an upcoming invitation to join a newly-forming mastermind group…including one specific to millennials.












  1. Change Your Life While On Vacation. Join me for an unforgettable day of growth, clarity and epiphanies at my annual Create The LIFE You Want private retreat to be held later this year at an exotic location (past retreats have been held in Sedona, Arizona; Santorini, Greece and a Caribbean cruise).
