In this section, Mr. Hill presents the argument that, through the subconscious mind, human beings are more susceptible to influences that are based on emotions rather than by logic. Practicality simply does not sell nearly as well in times of great abundance.
7 Negative Emotions, 7 Positive Emotions

Napoleon Hill, in his book Think and Grow Rich, published in , listed seven negative emotions to avoid if you want to achieve success. I have studied this list, written about the emotions, discussed them in study groups and reflected at length on them. On the question of which is most important, most powerful, or the worst in terms of business success, I have heard powerful arguments for each one. The selection seems to be determined by which emotion a person has recently experienced, either internally or he or she has been the recipient of acts caused by the emotion in another person.
Napoleon Hill on Emotions in “Think and Grow Rich”
Fantastic movie! And yes, I'm not a big Will fan, either. But he just knocked this one outta the park. Stephanie M. These positive emotions you cite from Napoleon Hill are very similar to those mentioned in "Power vs. Force" by David Hawkins. I highly recommend reading it! My favourite part in the movie is when Harold takes the suggestion to to halt the storyline by doing nothing. I won't ruin the scene for those who haven't seen the movie but it has a funny parallel to what happens in real life if you try stopping YOUR storyline! Naturally, as a young business person, I assumed it that the books' title referred to being "Rich" financially, but the real value of the book is how to grow rich emotionally and intellectually.
You see, what he said is absolutely true. Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy our minds at the same time. One or the other must dominate. And it is our responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of our minds. You should and you must control your mind! Make sure that what you have in there are nothing but only positive thoughts and emotions. How do you generate these?
