From a SwiftRead user:
Feels like I just discovered the equivalent of fire but for reading text. WOW, WOW, WOW. A must have for me, forever.

What are the big ideas?

  1. The Master Mind Principle: This book introduces the concept of the "Master Mind," which is a coordination of efforts between individuals towards a common goal. It emphasizes that power and knowledge are multiplied when two or more people work together in harmony. The economic and psychic benefits of this principle can lead to financial and personal success.
  2. Thoughts Transmit Through the Ether: In this book, the author introduces the idea that every human brain functions as both a broadcasting and receiving station for thoughts through the ether. Emotions, particularly sex, can increase the rate of vibration of thoughts, making them more receptive to ideas from the ether. This concept is unique in its explanation of how thoughts and emotions can influence each other and be transmitted between individuals.
  3. The Power of Desire: The author emphasizes that desire is a powerful starting point for using your mental broadcasting station, which includes the subconscious mind, Creative Imagination, and auto-suggestion. Desire plays an essential role in influencing the subconscious mind to transform thoughts into their physical or monetary equivalent.
  4. The Six Ghosts of Fear: This book introduces the concept of the "Six Ghosts of Fear," which are common fears that cause discouragement, timidity, procrastination, indifference, indecision, and lack of ambition. These fears exist only in one's mind and can be as dangerous as if they lived and walked on the earth in physical bodies. The author provides techniques for mastering fear, such as visualization, affirmations, positive thinking, and action.
  5. Building Alibis: The author emphasizes that people who do not succeed have one common trait: they have alibis for their lack of achievement. Building alibis is a national pastime and fatal to success. Instead of providing generic advice on overcoming obstacles, this book specifically highlights the dangers of making excuses or building alibis as a way to avoid taking responsibility for personal growth and success. The author encourages readers to identify specific fears that are holding them back and provides practical techniques for mastering those fears instead.


The Man Who Thought His Way into Partnership with Thomas A. Edison: A Story of Desire and Determination


  • The thirteen principles in this book aim to help individuals learn the art of converting defeat into opportunities for success.
  • Riches begin with a state of mind and come quickly when one is willing to stake everything on the rules that have made others successful.
  • A common weakness is measuring everything by personal impressions and beliefs, leading people to believe that success only comes through hard work or luck.
  • Successful people understand and apply the principles of success, such as desire, faith, auto-suggestion, speculation, and the subconscious mind.
  • The story of Henry Ford's creation of an eight-cylinder engine block in one piece illustrates the power of determination and refusing to accept "impossibility."
  • We are the Masters of our Fate and Captains of our Souls because we have the power to control our thoughts, which influence us to create physical realities that correspond to those thoughts.
  • Desire is a powerful principle, as it drives individuals to create definite plans for acquiring riches.
  • The next chapter will discuss the first of these principles: The Power of Desire.


“That is one of the tricks of opportunity. It has a sly habit of slipping in by the back door, and often it comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. Perhaps this is why so many fail to recognize opportunity.”

“He had nothing to start with, except the capacity to know what he wanted, and the determination to stand by that desire until he realized it.”

“More gold had been mined from the mind of men than the earth it self”

“Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do. More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.”

“Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach.”

“We refuse to believe that which we don't understand.”

CHAPTER 2: Desire: The Starting Point of All Achievement


  • The power of desire is immense, and it can help individuals overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges.
  • Desire, when fueled by faith and persistence, can manifest into reality.
  • Belief in oneself and one's abilities is crucial to achieving desired outcomes.
  • Persistent communication of desires can lead others to believe in their possibilities.
  • Burning desire mixed with faith creates a potent force capable of transforming dreams into tangible realities.
  • Mme. Schuman-Heink, despite being dismissed by the Vienna Court Opera director as having no chance as a singer, proved him wrong through her determination and belief in her talents.
  • A business associate who was given up for dead defied the doctor with his unwavering belief in living.
  • The power of desire should not be underestimated as it has lifted individuals from humble beginnings to places of wealth and recognition, reversed fate by resuscitating those thought lost, and granted second chances to those defeated numerous times.
  • Desire backed by faith is a powerful force that can help people achieve their dreams, no matter the nature or purpose of these dreams.
  • Nature, through some mysterious process of mental chemistry, wraps up in the impulse of burning desire 'that something' which recognizes no such word as impossible and accepts no such reality as failure.


“To win the big stakes in this changed world, you must catch the spirit of the great pioneers of the past, whose dreams have given to civilization all that it has of value, the spirit that serves as the life-blood of our own country – your opportunity and mine, to develop and market our talents.”

“The oak sleeps in the acorn. The bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of reality.”

“Awake,arise,and assert yourself,you dreamers of the world. Your star is now in ascendancy.”

“Remember,too,that all who succeed in life get off to a bad start,and pass through many heartbreaking struggles before they "arrive". The turning point in the lives of those who succeed usually comes at some moment of crisis,through which they are introduced to their "other selves".”

“Disappointment over love affairs generally has the effect of driving men to drink, and women to ruin; and this, because most people never learn the art of transmuting their strongest emotions into dreams of a constructive nature.”

“Helen Keller became deaf, dumb, and blind shortly after birth. Despite her greatest misfortune, she has written her name indelibly in the pages of the history of the great. Her entire life has served as evidence that no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as reality.”

“There is a difference between WISHING for a thing and being READY to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be BELIEF, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief.”

“A quitter never wins-and-a winner never quits.”

Faith: Visualization and Belief in Attainment


  • The power of an idea: Charles M. Schwab's speech at the University Club in New York on December 12, 1900, presented a clear-cut program for the aggrandizement of steel and inspired J.P. Morgan to create the United States Steel Corporation.
  • The importance of faith and persistence: Schwab's conviction in his ideas and their potential impact was instrumental in persuading Morgan to create the trust despite previous failures.
  • Monopolies versus expansion: Schwab argued against creating monopolies for the purpose of raising prices and instead advocated for expanding the market by cheapening the cost of steel, thus capturing a larger share of the world trade.
  • The role of imagination and specialization: Schwab's ideas focused on reorganization for efficiency, economies in traffic and administration, and capturing foreign markets through the concept of mass production.
  • Overcoming limitations: The creation of United States Steel Corporation serves as an example that there are no inherent limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.
  • From poverty to riches: Andrew Carnegie's gigantic vertical trust was a significant organization, and Schwab, who was virtually unknown at the time, quickly rose to a position of power, fame, and wealth after giving birth to his famous idea.


“Every man is what he is, because of the DOMI­NATING THOUGHTS which he permits to occupy his mind.”

“Every man is what he is, because of the dominating thoughts which he permits to occupy his mind.”

“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.”

“If you fill your mind with FEAR, doubt and unbelief in your ability to connect with, and use the forces of Infinite Intelligence, the law of auto-suggestion will take this spirit of unbelief and use it as a pattern by which your subconscious mind will translate it into its physical equivalent.”

“You’ve got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize.”

“Let us consider the power of FAITH, as it is now being demonstrated, by a man who is well known to all of civilization, Mahatma Gandhi, of India. In this man the world has one of the most astounding examples known to civilization, of the possibilities of FAITH. Gandhi wields more potential power than any man living at this time, and this, despite the fact that he has none of the orthodox tools of power, such as money, battle ships, soldiers, and materials of warfare. Gandhi has no money, he has no home, he does not own a suit of clothes, but HE DOES HAVE POWER. How does he come by that power? HE CREATED IT OUT OF HIS UNDERSTANDING OF THE PRINCIPLE OF FAITH, AND THROUGH HIS ABILITY TO TRANSPLANT THAT FAITH INTO THE MINDS OF TWO HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE. Gandhi has accomplished, through the influence of FAITH, that which the strongest military power on earth could not, and never will accomplish through soldiers and military equipment. He has accomplished the astounding feat of INFLUENCING two hundred million minds to COALESCE AND MOVE IN UNISON, AS A SINGLE MIND. What other force on earth, except FAITH could do as much? There will come a day when employees as well as employers will discover the possibilities of FAITH. That day is dawning. The whole world has had ample opportunity, during the recent business depression, to witness what the LACK OF FAITH will do to business.”

“Remember that your real wealth can be measured not by what you have, but by what you are.”

Auto-Suggestion: The Medium for Influencing the Subconscious Mind (Step Three toward Riches)


  • Auto-suggestion is self-suggestion and the medium for influencing the subconscious mind.
  • Through conscious thoughts, we voluntarily reach the subconscious mind and influence it with these thoughts.
  • All sense impressions perceived through the five senses can be controlled by us before they reach the subconscious mind.
  • Absolute control over the material that reaches our subconscious mind lies with us.
  • We must mix emotion and faith with our words to influence the subconscious mind effectively.
  • The principle of auto-suggestion is essential for developing a "money consciousness."
  • Repeat your desire statement aloud daily, see and feel yourself already in possession of the money, and demand practical plans from your subconscious mind.
  • Use concentration to focus on your desire until it becomes a burning obsession.
  • Follow all instructions given in the book with faith for satisfactory results.
  • The principle of auto-suggestion plays a crucial role in accumulating money through the methods described in the book.


“Happiness is found in doing, not merely possessing.”



  • Ideas have the power to change one's life, bridging emergencies or creating new opportunities.
  • The story of a woman who turned her unemployed salesman's idea into a profitable business by preparing an attractive "Personal Service Sales Plan."

  • The potential profitability of offering personalized planning services for marketing personal services, forming an alliance with experts in typing, art, and writing, and accepting a percentage of the increased pay earned by clients.


“knowledge is power.” It is nothing of the sort! Knowledge is only potential power. It becomes power only when, and if, it is organized into definite plans of action, and directed to a definite end.”

“An educated man is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.”

“The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge.”

“both success and failure are largely the results of habit!”

The Imagination: The Workshop of the Mind


  • Ideas can be transmuted into cash through the power of definite purpose and plans.
  • Dr. Frank Gunsaulus got a million dollars within thirty-six hours by reaching a definite decision to get it and having a definite plan for getting it.
  • Imagination is essential in recognizing and selling ideas.
  • Ideas are the impulse of thought that impels action.
  • The moving picture industry created millionaires through imagination and recognizing ideas.
  • Radio will create new opportunities for those who can create or recognize ideas, especially in producing practical radio programmes that serve audiences and can be measured in terms of sales or conversions.
  • Ideas are intangible forces but have more power than the physical brains that give birth to them.
  • Success requires no explanations, while failure permits no alibis.


“The only limitation is that which one sets up in one's own mind.”

Organized Planning: The Crystallization of Desire into Action


  • The American Dream is based on individual effort, hard work, and rendering useful service in exchange for riches.
  • Capitalism provides opportunities for anyone to accumulate wealth through honest means.
  • The Law of Economics cannot be beat or circumvented; it demands that one gives value before receiving value.
  • The accumulation of riches is not an easy process, and requires persistence and dedication.

  • Those who attempt to ignore the Law of Economics by raiding public treasuries or refusing to work will eventually face consequences.
  • The American Dream is not an easy path, but with hard work, dedication, and a solid plan, anyone can achieve success in America's capitalistic system.


“When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.”

“If you give up before your goal has been reached, you are a "quitter." A QUITTER NEVER WINS AND A WINNER NEVER QUITS. Lift this sentence out, write it on a piece of paper in letters an inch high, and place it where you will see it every night before you go to sleep, and every morning before you go to work”

“Remember that it is not the lawyer who knows the most law, but the one who best prepares his case, who wins.”

“the cause of the depression is traceable directly to the worldwide habit of trying to reap without sowing.”

“If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.”

“The time will never be “just right.” Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.”

“There is no substitute for persistence. The person who makes persistence his watch-word, discovers that “Old Man Failure” finally becomes tired, and makes his departure. Failure cannot cope with persistence.”

“Opinions are the cheapest commodities on earth. Everyone has a flock of opinions ready to be wished upon anyone who will accept them. If you are influenced by "opinions" when you reach DECISIONS, you will not succeed in any undertaking.”

“Close friends and relatives, while not meaning to do so, often handicap one through “opinions” and sometimes through ridicule, which is meant to be humorous. Thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through life, because some well-meaning, but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through “opinions” or ridicule.”

“TELL THE WORLD WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO, BUT FIRST SHOW IT.This is the equivalent of saying "deeds, and not words, are what count most.”

Persistence: The Sustained Effort Necessary to Induce Faith


  • Wallis Simpson is an example of applied persistence and self-determination.
  • She defied long odds and captured the affections of the most desirable bachelor in the world, King Edward VIII, who gave up his crown for her love.

“The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.”

“Neglecting to broaden their view has kept some people doing one thing all their lives.”

Power of the Master Mind: The Driving Force

THE MYSTERY OF SEX: Transmutation


  • The emotions of love, sex, and romance are interconnected and play a crucial role in human achievement.
  • Love is spiritual in nature and leaves enduring traces on the heart, while sex is biological.
  • Memories of past love experiences can provide inspiration and motivation for creative effort.
  • Love and sex alone cannot bring happiness in marriage; they must be balanced with each other and with the emotion of romance.
  • Man's greatest motivating force is his desire to please woman, which gives women the power to make or break a man.
  • Understanding and catering to man's inherent desire to please woman is an effective way for women to exert influence over men.
  • No man is happy or complete without the modifying influence of the right woman.


“Those who succeed in an outstanding way seldom do so before the age of 40. More often, they do not strike their real pace until they are well beyond the age of 50.”

“One who has loved truly, can never lose entirely. Love is whimsical and temperamental. Its nature is ephemeral, and transitory. It comes when it pleases,and goes away without warning. Accept and enjoy it while it remains, but spend no time worrying about its departure. Worry will never bring it back.”

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve.”

The Broadcasting and Receiving Station for Thought


  • Every human brain functions as both a broadcasting and receiving station for thoughts through the ether.
  • The Creative Imagination serves as the "receiving set" of the brain, picking up thoughts released by other brains.
  • Emotions, particularly sex, can increase the rate of vibration of thoughts, making them more receptive to ideas from the ether.
  • Desire is the starting point for using your mental broadcasting station, which includes the subconscious mind, Creative Imagination, and auto-suggestion.

“There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge. Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought.”

“Perhaps we shall learn, as we pass through this age, that the 'other self" is more powerful than the physical self we see when we look into a mirror.”

The Sixth Sense: The Door to the Temple of Wisdom


  • The six fears that cause discouragement, timidity, procrastination, indifference, indecision, and lack of ambition, self-reliance, initiative, self-control, and enthusiasm are described as the "Six Ghosts of Fear."
  • These fears exist only in one's mind and can be as dangerous as if they lived and walked on the earth in physical bodies.
  • The fear of poverty seized the minds of millions during the 1929 business depression and still frightens some people today.
  • To master fear, it is important to identify the specific fear that is present and understand its causes.
  • Techniques for mastering fear include visualization, affirmations, positive thinking, and action.
  • Faith is the opposite of fear and can be developed through auto-suggestion, desire, and the subconscious.
  • The sixth sense, or intuition, can also be a source of knowledge and guidance that goes beyond the physical senses.
  • Henry Ford and Thomas Edison are examples of individuals who understood and made practical use of the sixth sense in their work.
  • The sixth sense is not something that can be turned on and off at will, but comes with maturity and spiritual growth.


“In parting, I would remind you that “Life is a checkerboard, and the player opposite you is time. If you hesitate before moving, or neglect to move promptly, your men will be wiped off the board by time. You are playing against a partner who will not tolerate decisions!”

“If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it,therefore, you will readily recognize the other half the moment it reaches your mind.”

How to Outwit the Six Ghosts of Fear: Identify Your personal Enemies


  • People who do not succeed have one common trait: they have alibis for their lack of achievement.
  • Alibis cannot be used for money, and the world only cares if you have achieved success.
  • The following are commonly used alibis: IF I didn't have a wife and family, IF I had enough "pull," IF I had money, IF I had a good education, IF I could get a job, IF I had good health, IF I only had time, IF times were better, IF other people understood me, IF conditions around me were different, IF I could live my life over again, IF I did not fear what "they" would say, IF I had been given a chance, IF I now had a chance, IF other people didn't have it in for me, IF nothing happens to stop me, IF I were only younger, IF I could do what I want, IF I had been born rich, IF I could meet "the right people," IF I had the talent that some people have, IF I dared assert myself, IF I only had embraced past opportunities, IF people didn't get on my nerves, IF I didn't have to keep house and look after the children, IF I could save some money, IF the boss only appreciated me, IF I only had somebody to help me, IF my family understood me, IF I lived in a big city, IF I could just get started, IF I were free, IF I had the personality of some people, IF I weren't so fat, IF my talents were known, IF I could just get a "break," IF I could only get out of debt, IF I hadn't failed, IF I only knew how, IF everybody didn't oppose me, IF I didn't have so many worries, IF I could marry the right person, IF people weren't so dumb, IF my family weren't so extravagant, IF I had courage to see myself as I really am.
  • Building alibis is a national pastime and fatal to success. A man's alibi is the child of his own imagination.


“Before we can master an enemy, we must know its name, its habits, and its place of abode.”

“Every adversity, every failure, every heartbreak, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”

“Put your foot upon the neck of the fear of criticism by reaching a decision not to worry about what other people think, do, or say.”

“The most practical of all methods for controlling the mind is the habit of keeping it busy with a definite purpose, backed by a definite plan." And "A man whose mind is filled with fear not only destroys his own chances of intelligent action, but he transmits these destructive vibrations to the minds of all who come in contact with him, and destroys, also, their chances.”

“You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.”

“If you fail to control your own mind, you may be sure you will control nothing else.”

“IF - and this is the greatest of them all - I had the courage to see myself as I reallyam, I would find out what is wrong with me, and correct it, then I might have a chance to profit by my mistakes and learn something from the experience of others,for I know that there is something WRONG with me, or I would now be where I WOULD HAVE BEEN IF I had spent more time analyzing my weaknesses, and less time building alibis to cover them.”
