CHAPTER 4- AUTO-SUGGESTION: THE MEDIUM
FOR INFLUENCING THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

“You are now reading the chapter which represents the 
keystone to the arch of this philosophy. The instructions 
contained in this chapter must be understood and APPLIED 
WITH PERSISTENCE, if you succeed in transmuting desire 
into money.

The actual performance of transmuting DESIRE into money, 
involves the use of auto-suggestion as an agency by which 
one may reach, and influence, the subconscious mind. The 
other principles are simply tools with which to apply 
auto-suggestion. Keep this thought in mind, and you will, 
at all times, be conscious of the important part the 
principle of auto-suggestion is to play in your efforts to 
accumulate money through the methods described in this book”

Into my hands have been place a set of keys. These keys open
the path to my subconscious mind. It is my choice what I 
bring to my subconscious mind, whether it be negative or 
positive. It’s the messages that I allow into the subconscious 
that will determine the future I desire.

Mr. Hill wrote, “AUTOSUGGESTION is the agency of control 
through which an individual may voluntarily feed his 
subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or, by 
neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find 
their way into this rich garden of the mind.”

I really had never given it much thought to the effect self-talk 
(auto-suggestion) had on my life. I know now I had absolute 
control over that which enter the subconscious, but like most 
people, I was not exercising it. In these months since joining 
MFF I started taking control. I began to develop my self-talks 
and repeating them 100’s of time daily. I put together in my 
“Desire Statement” and have been reading it daily. What a 
difference it has made!

I want to share with you a change that I experienced during 
these months. When I came to MFF I had never put time into Facebook, 
LinkedIn, and any of the media sites. I had told myself it was a 
waste of time, I could never write a post, blogs, and ads. My 
auto-suggestion was set on “I Can’t.”

I started work with my mentors and listening to trainings on the 
talks. I felt a belief in me that I had not had in the past. My 
self-talk changed to, “I have fun writing post, publishing on 
LinkedIn, and produce new ads for Facebook.” What a difference! 
I have not had so much fun, and new ideas are constantly flashing 
to my mind.

Thanks to Michael, Linda, Bob, and the team on this mastermind 
for your belief and support. These to those whom I can mentor now 
and the future.
