Think and Grow Rich: A Practical and Comprehensive Interpretation.
Think and Grow Rich: Part 5 – The Mystery of Sex Transmutation
(part 1 of 3)
"So how does sex explain what we have just read so far in this series?"
Let’s dive straight into an analogy to explain the principles that we have covered so far and some principles to come.
(Note: this will be more from a male’s perspective)
We decide to attend a friend’s party or dinner to enjoy some good social time together, to catch up on each other’s lives and be in the company of others we know. We arrive and greet everyone with handshakes and hugs as we come in. We are served some drinks to settle in with everyone and there is some light chatting with everyone to quickly catch up with everyone lives.
The mood is calming, comfortable and sociable with some music in the background, lights are on in the garden while the sun is just about to set under the horizon and the air is warm – it’s a beautiful evening.
You hear the doorbell ring and you realize that everyone is outside, including the host, so you decide to be a friendly host and open the door.
The door is open and you are standing there in a moment of paralysis...
Standing in front of you is a beautiful woman, someone you are just meeting for the first time. Light brown hair that’s just about to touch her shoulders, deep soulful eyes, and the most heart-warming smile. She’s wearing a light summer dress that stops about mid-thigh to show off the rest of her body.
You instantly feel the confidence that she knows and feels of herself from this single moment in time that feels like an eternity but is in fact only a few seconds.
You greet her and let her in, taking the bottle of wine from her hand and introducing yourself.
The evening goes on and you find out that she the host’s friend from their childhood. You keep taking some glances at her while she’s being introduced to everyone else. You notice that wonderful smile again and the sweet voice that is paired with it. She hasn’t looked your way yet so you continue to stare and be completely mesmerized by her beauty.
You start to think of ways to approach her and start a conversation...
“How can I get to know her?” you ask yourself.
Many scenarios play in your head and your heart rate increases a bit but you know you just have to start a conversation...
You approach her and start chatting and she graciously responds back extremely well. It feels natural yet exciting at the same time and a few moments later you are completely calm, relaxed and 100% yourself again.
The night continues and you engage with her even more; laughing, joking, sharing and even a little bit of light touching here and there.
You have both spent enough time with each other to know that there is an attraction between the two of you – everyone else sees it and some other guys are just bummed out because they wished they were you for a moment.
Numbers are exchanged because you both want this to continue again.
For the rest of that evening, you keep replaying the evening in your head over and over again because it makes you happy and puts a smile on your face.
You start to think about the next time that you want to meet with her.
You again imagine what you are going to say when she picks up the phone.
The thought about taking her to this particular restaurant in town that is on the rooftop of one of the tallest buildings crosses your mind and you quite like the idea that she will enjoy the experience of it. It’s completely out of your budget but you still want to take her here. You picture yourself picking her up for this date in your best suit with some orchard flowers as a gift...
again you start to imagine the conversations that you’ll have with her at this restaurant and getting ever closer to her because it feels right to open more up to her.
You make the call and the date is set.
You repeat the process over and over again until you both have the urge to physically express the feelings that you have within. It’s that moment where you both acknowledge that it’s time to take it to the next level. You both say it through the way you look at each other, through your touch, through your breathing, and through your entire body language.
So how does this help us understand the principles that we have read so far in this series?
