The Twelfth Step toward Riches

What are we telling our brain? What is our self-talk? I can relate to Rick
Burnett's lesson from last week. Reading the Steps given in Chapters 2, 3 and 4
with emphasis on Step 5 of Chapter 3 for several years should give us a firm
grounding in personal development.

In my case, most of the time it does. Then there are times when it seems all
personal growth is forgotten and the negative stuff comes out. This negativity
wipes out that good stuff from those chapters.  Most of the time, it takes the
"Stop It" video to get back on track.

Michael says it is the nightly TV news. It sure is negative enough. Others say
it is the people we associate with. I've heard him tell people they must get rid
of those people. Get them out of your life. Then there are times when it seems
the negativity comes out with no thought of what I am doing until it is too
late. Darn, if I had only thought before speaking. Unfortunately I hear
Michael's words, "How you do anything, is how you do everything." Dimmit! I
thought there was hope!

Our subconscious mind is the sending station and Creative Imagination the
receiving station. Our subconscious mind is the broadcasting or sending part,
the brain.

Napoleon Hill continues the thoughts from Chapter 11, Sex Transmutation. The
more emotion, the higher the rate of vibration, the more our subconscious mind
believes us and the more it sends out instructions to the universe or Infinite
Intelligence. This causes the them to send back more of what we have said we

All is well and good as long as we are in a positive state of mind. But when we
go to that darker place, negativity, all bets are off. The subconscious mind
says, ok, you now want the bad stuff? Ok, I'll ask the universe for negative
stuff and that is what we get.

So properly crafted self-talk is required to keep us in a positive state. In
fact, self-talk, what we are telling our subconscious mind, is the most
important activity we can do here in Think and Grow Rich Lessons and in
Mentoring For Free.

I grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their ability to have created a
system like Mentoring For Free that addresses all our needs required for life
and business. It's all right here in Mentoring For Free for the taking. It is up
to each of us to be COACHABLE and learn how to become as successful as we

I am also grateful to each member of our calls. Their contribution is required
to give their inputs and ideas and form a mastermind group that Napoleon Hill
says is required.

PS: I am also very grateful to those who download my ebook and chose to
participate in Mentoring For Free. We are also forming a mastermind group.
Napoleon Hill reminds us it only takes two to form a mastermind group. We are
helping each other develop our skills to become more successful. They too are
teaching me the skills I need to continue to become more successful.
