In Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" he lists the Ten Stimuli of the Human Mind. According to Hill they are (in order):

1.The desire for sex expression.
2.Love.
3.A burning desire for fame, power, or financial gain, money.
4.Music.
5.Friendship.
6.A Master Mind alliance based upon the harmony of two or more people who ally themselves for spiritual and temporal advancement.
7.Mutual suffering, such as that experienced by people who are persecuted.
8.Autosuggestion.
9.Fear.
10.Narcotics and alcohol.

He goes on to say

"Sexual desire is the most powerful of desires. When driven by this desire, men develop keeness of imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times."

According to Hill most of the great leaders and wealthy throughout time were "highly sexed". But in some way they were able to channel that energy into something else.

How does one, with all the distractions in modern living, focus their enery on the task at hand? Not just sexual energy but any energy. Does any one have any steps that they take on a daily basis?
