Sleep and Grow Rich
Several years ago, this 1962 ebook by Ben Sweetland landed on my desktop. The title reminded me of the great Napoleon Hills’ masterpiece “Think and Grow Rich” but I didn’t think about it much at the time and saved it for future reference.
Last Saturday, while searching my hard drive for something interesting to read, I bumped into the dusty old file and decided to see what the books was about. Truth is, I hadn’t heard of Ben Sweetland before, so I started with a search to see what I’d discover.
Ben Sweetland was a well-known psychologist and a famous lecturer throughout the United States. He was also known for his syndicated column called “The Marriage Clinic” and for several books he’d written, including “Add Years to Your Life and Life to Your Years”, “Fourteen Golden Secrets”, “I Will” and “I Can”… with such positive titles, I decided to dive into reading the little ebook I had found in my virtual shelf.
As I started reading “Grow Rich While You Sleep” the main idea of the ebook became obvious…
The mastering of your success depends on your creative mind.
However, something else caught my attention… Dr. Sweetland placed an emphasis on building a success consciousness by giving clear assignments to the creative mind, so it can go to work while we sleep!
Then, he actually gives the tested commands he used himself throughout his life to achieve the success he did! He describes how he used this technique to tap into his creative mind and came up with solutions to every single problem he had, all while he slept!
He also states that once you learn how to implant these commands properly in your creative mind, your conscious mind will be forced to comply with the given order every single time.
Wow! This means that our future is shaped mainly during our sleeping hours!
This very comprehensive ebook teaches you how to attain not just material riches, but psychological, spiritual, physical and mental riches, as well.
Of course, if we are going to use this power, we must sleep peacefully and soundly. As an added bonus, Mr. Sweetland discusses the main reasons of sleeplessness (by the way, those reasons still apply today!) and gives us solutions to induce a deep and restful sleep naturally, something we can all benefit from living in today’s fast-paced world!
I was also very pleased to find a series of precise 1, 2, 3, ‘do-this-then-that’ exercises throughout several chapters. You see, according to Dr. Sweetland, achievement begins with thought but ‘knowing’ this is not enough… what good does it make to learn that your thoughts lean toward negativity more often than not?
Dr. Sweetland not only helps you discover what your thoughts are, but goes on to guide you to change the negativity with specific instructions. Did you know that we work harder at being a failure than at being a success? This is not only strange but opposite to what most of us believed. However, once you finish chapter #6 (and the story of Joe Benson) it will all make sense to you.
Amongst my favorite chapters are “Why you are like you are”, “You are twice as good as you think you are”, and the one titled “Developing a Health Consciousness” is like it had been written for me!
My jaw fell to the floor when I read about concise proof of mind over matter examples. Here’s is one… Would you believe it if I told you that blond people who lost sight early in life will look young longer than those with sight? This is because their minds hold the picture of how they looked the last time they saw their reflection! Amazing, isn’t it?
The ebook is filled with real life examples and thought provoking concepts, such as the unreality of money, how rich is rich?, and money is a myth, which helps you gain a new understanding of money and a new awareness of true riches. (This section deserves a high-five, for sure.)
The whole book is both, inspirational and practical. A true gem. The more you read, the more drawn and inspired you’ll become… but if you were to ask me, what you will learn in chapter #12 is definitely priceless… The step-by-step process to give precise assignments to your creative mind while you sleep. This chapter alone is worth the price of the entire ebook and so much more…. no worries, though. The ebook sells for peanuts if compared to the content it delivers.
I could go on and share many more priceless chunks and bites of this ebook, but I’d be missing brilliant points too, so I rather let you see the complete ‘table of contents‘ and decide for yourself how you can Learn to Think Your Way to Riches and Success!
Towards the end of the book, Dr. Sweetland asks himself this question… Would it be possible for an average man or woman to read this book and then, by following its suggestions, turn the tide of mediocrity to a life of happiness and opulence?
His answer was a resounding YES!
If that is not motivating, I don’t know what is! “Grow Rich While You Sleep” covers nearly everything you need to know about the Ancient Wealth Secrets that can turbo-charge your earnings potential into overdrive… AND it points out the steps to do it. The best part is that once you get the steps in order, the rest happens while you sleep!
I invite you to gain a new and improved rich consciousness with this ‘no-fluff-all-wisdom’ insightful ebook! If you haven’t yet clicked on the links above, get it here… Grow Rich While You Sleep!
May You Grow Rich as You Sleep!
