When we consider the teachings of Napoleon Hill in his book Think and Grow Rich or Earl Nightingale’s LP The Strangest Secret, we learn that the human mind is a very powerful tool.
In order for people to believe in concepts such as, “anything the mind of man can conceive, and bring itself to believe, it can achieve,” or “you get what you think about most of the time,” they must have a pretty high Teachability Index.
It would certainly require a high “willingness to accept change,” considering that many people are taught that only those who work hard will be successful.
As you develop a more intimate understanding of these concepts, you start to understand that the secret to success is not actually based on how hard you work, so much as it’s about your attitude and getting your thinking right.

Basic Success Principle #3 – The Training Balance Scale
There are two sides to the Training Balance Scale… the Thinking or Attitude side and the Action or “How” side.
The interesting thing about this basic principle is that the scale is never in balance.
Successful people know that the recipe for success is 90% thinking right and 10% actions.
Napoleon Hill spent 20 years observing the privileged elite class and what he learned is that defining your dream and getting a burning desire for its achievement is one of the most powerful things you can do to achieve your goals. That falls on the Thinking side of the Training Balance Scale. The title of his most popular book was, THINK And Grow Rich… not, Work Hard and Grow Rich.
The Action side of the scale is the How. When our thinking is right, the How will present itself… remember that. And what we don’t want to do is spend time focusing on How we’re going to achieve our goal. When we focus on the How we are actually focusing on the lack of it… and that will attract more of the lack of it.
Once we adapt a strong understanding of the Training Balance Scale and use our thinking correctly, we will start to understand that we can have, be and do anything and everything we want in our life.
Focus on thinking right and You Will see!
