Chapter 12 - The Subconscious Mind

Hill states in this chapter "If you remember that you are living daily, in the midst of all
manner of thought impulses which are reaching your subconscious mind, without your
knowledge. Some of these impulses are negative, some are positive. You are now
engaged in trying to help shut off the flow of negative impulses, and to aid in voluntarily
influencing your subconscious mind, through positive impulses of DESIRE.

When you achieve this, you will possess the key which unlocks the door to your subconscious
mind. Moreover, you will control that door so completely, that no undesirable thought may
influence your subconscious mind."

I heard a statement a number of days ago, and I don't remember who said it,
but they said, "Success requires practice."

I believe that statement applies to anything whether we are building a business,
losing weight, learning a new skill, or engaged in stopping the negative thoughts
we entertain and are aware of and the negative thoughts we entertain without
our knowledge. 

If we want to possess "the key" Mr. Hill mentions we need to replace the negative
thoughts we are entertaining with positive thoughts and that will only happen with
thinking and saying positive things to and about ourselves.  Kind of sounds like "self talk".

The question to ask myself is, "What am I practicing?"  If I practice negative thoughts,
I will be successful and if I practice positive thoughts, I will be successful.  Success will
come to whatever we practice the most. 

It all comes down to taking responsibility, persistence and practice.  Practice the right
things and right things will happen.

"Success requires practice."
