CHAPTER 4 AUTO-SUGGESTION THE MEDIUM FOR INFLUENCING THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
The Third Step toward Riches
Auto-suggestion or self-talk as we call it here in MFF may enter the
subconscious mind two ways, one by Your conscious efforts through Your 5 senses
or, two, from the ether.
There are two ways You may receive thoughts from the ether, one, from Infinite
Intelligence and, the second, from other people's subconscious minds.
Both methods will come to You as "hunches and inspirations." You must write them
down immediately, because they flee as quickly as they arrive.
Again Hill spends a significant amount of this chapter reminding You of the six
steps in Chapter 2 and Faith from Chapter 3. These chapters are critical, if You
are to be able to use self-talk effectively.
Hill says, "MIX ALL AUTO-SUGGETION WITH EMOTION OR FEELING."
He says this emotion or feeling is so important maybe it should be mentioned in
each chapter. It's the main reason most people who try self-talk get no results.
All 15 chapters are important, but can You feel the extra importance Hill places
on this chapter? He even gives You statements to include in Your daily self-
He suggests a written copy where You can see it morning and night. This suggests
it should be printed out for convenience. My results of Chapters 2, 3 and 4 are
printed on 4" x 6" cards. There are three copies, one on the night stand by the
bed, one at the computer and one by the recliner. All instructions are read
This Chapter is so important, Hill recommends reading it every day until you are
convinced self-talk is a sound principle.
I am grateful to Michael and Linda for having created MFF and T&GR Lessons so we
can study this book to a much deeper level than can be reached by only reading
the book. In fact, Hill even says, "a mastermind of one does not work". I have
had several clients tell me they have read that book more than 10 times. I ask
them to get on a couple calls, and then tell me what they think. They all say,
"It's like I never read the book."
I am also grateful to each member of our 9 weekly calls. They form a mastermind
group as Hill found when he interviewed 500 of the richest men of his time. He
found they all belonged to a mastermind group.
PS: I am also grateful and very thankful for each person who has downloaded my
ebook that I communicate with regularly. As Hill says two people form a
mastermind group and that is what we are doing. I'm so appreciative of each one
of them because we are helping each other become more successful in life and in
business. Thank you, thank you and thank you.
