Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires.Napoleon Hill – Think and Grow Rich
What are we without sexual desire?
Think about it, what’s the purpose of life but to pass our genes on to the next generation? All other species have one goal and that is to have as much of their genetic information passed on as possible. Now we are a little different than other species because we have evolved brains that give us the ability to think. When you cage a bull or a dog whose only purpose is to reproduce they will constantly try to find a way out. In our case, we find ways to transfer that energy into more productive or destructive alternatives.
The word ‘Transmutation’ means to transfer a form of energy into another. When I talk about “Sex energy transmutation” I literally mean switching your thought pattern from a sexual nature to a productive one. Napoleon Hill says sexual energy can be transferred to develop keenness of imagination, courage, willpower, persistence, and creativity…If used in the right way of course.
Sex Energy Transmutation does not mean you have to repress or eliminate your desire for physical affection. All it means is that you can find more productive outlets to release this energy in a healthier way.
Think and Grow Rich is widely known as one of the best selling success books of all time so there’s really no point in doing a recap on the book because you could find it somewhere else. What I decided to do is break down what I believe to be the most controversial part of the book and let you decide if you want to read it.
I think most people have what it takes to become the best version of themselves, we just have to focus our energy on activities/ hobbies that will yield us the biggest returns.
