& Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill - Chapter 1
In the Japanese tradition, a Dojo is a school or a practice hall.
In today's world a Dojo is usually considered as a place of training to learn
martial arts, but the origin of the word means “seat of wisdom.”
Isn’t that what we are all about? Discovering the Wisdom that will
transform our lives is worthy of all our effort.
For some, the Mental Cleanse is a brand new experience. It’s exhilarating
to listen and learn all about the principles that are presented in this
masterpiece by Napoleon Hill. If you are new to this Dojo, you are just
beginning to learn that Thoughts are Things.
For others, participating in the Mental Cleanse has become an important part of
our week. Some of us been through this book many times and have posted
many lessons. We enter this Dojo with a greater awareness that Thoughts
A Dojo is a place of practice. Here at our Mental Cleanse Dojo, no one is
expected to get it right all the time. None of us are perfect, no matter
how many lessons we’ve posted or how many times we speak up on the calls.
We are all Learners. For maximum benefit, we must surrender to our egos
and be in a state of Beginner’s Mind.
I’ve been part of the Mentoring For Free Mental Cleanse since June 2010.
It took me weeks before I submitted a lesson and even more weeks before I

enough…intelligence, education, experience, boldness, persistence, etc.
More importantly, I believed the even greater lie that I wasn’t enough.
By being faithful to the Mental Cleanse process, I have been trading in those
limiting belief systems. Oh, how I wish that process could be faster. So

Here we are at Chapter 1—Thoughts are Things. Do I come to this chapter
with Beginner’s Mind or do I come thinking I know a lot because I’ve been
through the book so many times?
I’m here to confess that the more I go through this book, the more I realize
how little I know. If I were to really grasp the reality of the words in
this chapter, my life would be different. It all comes down to Results and I’m
far from where I want to be.
So here I am…once again, surrendering to the Dojo. I let go of whatever
is holding me back and I put on Beginner’s Mind.
I’m ready to learn and take action.
