CHAPTER 15 HOW TO OUTWIT
THE SIX GHOSTS OF FEAR

“Fears are nothing more than states of mind. One's state of
mind is subject to control and direction. Man can create
nothing which he does not first conceive in the form of an
impulse of thought. Following this statement, comes another
of still greater importance, namely, ‘Man’s thought impulses
begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical
equivalent, whether those thoughts are voluntary or involuntary.’

This fact may be explained by the statement that every human
being has the ability to completely control his own mind
, and
with this control, obviously, every person may open his mind to
the tramp thought impulses which are being released by other
brains, or close the doors tightly and admit only thought impulses
of his own choice.”

Fear is the self-imposed road block, we all must confront and
conquered. Are there things to be afraid of?  Yes, such a child
crossing street a busy street without assistance. Or, crossing
the path between a mother bear and her cubs. There is a real
difference between being afraid of a real danger and have fear
of a perceived danger.

Most fear is just “False Evidence Appearing Real.” Meaning it was
created or conjured up in the our mind based on what might happen,
had happen, could happen, and those if’s in live. Seed planted in
the subconscious by parents, teachers, peers, movies, TV shows, news
reports, stories and even in commercials. Being told “You are no
good when only 5, or “You’ll never have anything”, or “People like
us could never have a business, just get a job.” Watch closely at
any show or ad, a thread of any the basic fears will be found.
Most people have told themselves they could never be rich. These
are just impulses of thought being translate or converted into
their physical equivalent.

These are all lies told to us and by us. They are not true! They are
not true!
We have a choice to use the ability given by God to control
our minds from what comes into it and what we let come out of it. I
choose to take control, use the keys to admit only those positive
thoughts and impulses to live and grow in me.

“The six basic fears become translated into a state of worry, through
indecision. Relieve yourself, forever of the fear of death, by reaching
a decision to accept death as an inescapable event. Whip the fear of
poverty by reaching a decision to get along with whatever wealth you
can accumulate WITHOUT WORRY. Put your foot upon the neck of the fear
of criticism by reaching a decision NOT TO WORRY about what other
people think, do, or say. Eliminate the fear of old age by reaching
a decision to accept it, not as a handicap, but as a great blessing
which carries with it wisdom, self-control, and understanding not
known to youth.”

Here at Mentoring for Free I have regain the control I was intended
to have. I have the freedom to think for myself, not let those ghost
of fear to hold any power over me. THEY NOT REAL!!
