At first glance of the six deadly fears Hill mentions;
The fear of POVERTY
The fear of CRITICISM
The fear of ILL HEALTH
The fear of LOSS OF LOVE OF SOMEONE
The fear of OLD AGE
The fear of DEATH
I thought to myself, I’m in pretty good shape where these fears are concerned.
Although after reading through the symptoms of the first fear “Poverty” I was very surprised. I knew that I displayed these negative characteristics form time to time but never thought about them as symptoms of fear.
I have to say while reading through the rest of the symptoms of the other five fears my eyes have been opened to my true condition.
At first I tried to argue with the diagnoses but I was quickly reminded of the twenty plus years of Hill’s life he invested into studying and applying these God given truths.
Then I remembered something that I had learned years ago about symptoms; they are to be looked at like fruit on a tree and are only there because of the real issue, “The Tree” and the tree has roots that grow deep into the soil.
The good news is I don’t have to work on all of the many symptoms like picking fruit off a tree one at a time, No I can just go to the root, the fear. And the best part is “Fear is a State of Mind” and your mind can be changed.
Through reading, studying and applying the truths in Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich” and with the help of this master mind group and my mentors here at Mentoring for Free I can begin to starve each fear of the nutrition needed to sustain life and finally be freed of them once and for all.
Thank you, Michael and all participating in this group and contributing to these lessons.
