Chapter 4 Auto-Suggestion


The Third Step toward Riches

Hill summarizes the instructions for the third step, reminding us that we must follow them all exactly in a spirit of faith.

First, get in a quiet place (preferably in bed, at night) and repeat aloud the amount of money you intend to accumulate, the time limit you have set for said accumulation and a description of the service or merchandise you plan to give in return for the money. As you do these, see yourself already in possession of the money.

Your written statement of your purpose should be similar to the following:

“By the January 1, 20.., I will have in my possession $50,000, which will come to me in various amounts during this timeframe. “In return for this money I will provide the most efficient service possible, of the highest quantity, and the best quality as a salesman of (describe the service or merchandise you intend to sell).

“I believe that I will have this money in my possession. My faith is so strong that I see this money before my eyes. I feel it with my hands. It is now about to transfer to me, and it is proportional to the service I deliver in return for it. A plan of how to accumulate this money is forthcoming, and I will follow that plan, when it is received.”

Second. Repeat this program morning and night until you can see, the money you intend to accumulate in your imagination.

Third. Place a written copy of your statement where you can see it morning and night, and read it just before going to sleep, and upon awakening until it is memorized.

Remember, as you carry out these instructions, that you are applying the principle of auto-suggestion, for the purpose of giving orders to your subconscious mind. Remember, also, that your subconscious mind will act only upon instructions which are emotionalized, and handed over to it with “feeling.” Faith is the strongest, and most productive of the emotions.
