Napoleon Hill’s Major Definite Purpose AKA Self Confidence Formula

How to Improve Your Self-Confidence - With Free Downloadable PDF

We have amazing self-confidence when our inner vision and our outer vision of who we are becomes harmonious.


Our outer world of attitudes,wealth,work,relationships and health will always mirror our inner attitudes. For example, when I first got started in the Home Business Arena by way of a Network Marketing Company, back then I had very little self-confidence in my abilities, my fears, my negative self-talk would hold me back from going out and talking to others, back then I would never have been able to start this blog. However, the power of autosuggestion through the sef-confidence formula has helped me to change this concept of myself.

One of the things I repeatedly saw during my quest to change my innermost beliefs about myself through studying successful people was that High Achievers have amazing self-confidence but how do they get it.

It is through Napoleon Hill’s Major Definite Purpose AKA Self Confidence Formula formula that most of our Over Achievers get their bold confidence. It’s by harnessing the power of autosuggestion—a degree of self-hypnotism, by telling our mind over and over again what we want it to do. Through this method, we can impress your biggest goals—our Definite Chief Aim upon your subconscious mind and let our mind find ways to make it come to life.

Self-Confidence Formula

First. I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I DEMAND of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.

Second. I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.

Third. I know through the principle of auto-suggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it, therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.

Fourth. I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, and I will never stop trying, until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.

Fifth. I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me because I will believe in them, and in myself.

I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day, with full FAITH that it will gradually influence my THOUGHTS and ACTIONS so that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.
