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

The Third Step toward Riches

There are two ways our subconscious mind receives thoughts. One, being through the ether. The other AUTO-SUGGESTION.

AUTO-SUGGESTION is the programming of the mind through our five senses. This thought process is where conscious thought takes place. It can be negative or positive. This communication that reaches the subconscious mind influences our every thought.

 Napoleon Hill mentions Chapter 2, DESIRE quite often following Chapter 2. This is a hint as to the importance of it and the 6 Steps given. The results of Chapter 2 is the AUTO-SUGGESTION one may use to influence the subconscious mind.

I know when I say my self-talk with emotion and FAITH that it will happen, I get hunches or inspirations that seem to flow unrestricted. I first write them down. Then at the first opportunity, I put them into action. This is how our Greater Power; INFINITE INTELLIGENCE, The Universe or God, whichever is meaningful to You, leads us toward our destination.

Napoleon Hill is quite explicit here in this chapter. He says, "Go back to these six steps described in chapter two….. He does not suggest it. He says "Go back…" Go back and work on those six steps until You have something You can work with.  It may change in the future and that is OK. We grow as we go, as our emotion becomes stronger and more definite.

Take Barnes for example. Don't You think he CONCENTRATED until he developed a BURNING DESIRE! We will not see results if we miss this step.

As Ken Klemm says, our self-talk or AUTO-SUGGESTIOM should contain the 3 P's, Personal, Present and Positive. But the subsconscious mind will take negative or positive self-talk.

An excellent way to motivate one's self is to become a dreamer. Begin acting as a child. Use Your IMAGINATION. IMAGINE anything. If You can IMAGINE it, You can ACHIEVE it. What if…. what if.…  What if….

We don't want to wait for the right moment to begin. That moment will most likely never come. Begin working on Your plan. I like to think of it as walking down the road on a pitch dark night with a flashlight. We see a short distance ahead. As we walk we see a bit further down the road. The same with our journey we are on. Just keep on keeping on. It's hard to catch a person who never quits.

I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their PERSISTENCE in finding this training, Mentoring For Free. It is consistent with Napoleon Hill 's training. We are also taught we can't continue to take from the Universe. We must give to get, give to get, give to get. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy.

I am also grateful to each member of Mentoring For Free who comes to our weekly training. People are allowed to learn at their own pace. Some speak up right away, some wait for a few calls to become more comfortable. For those who begin participating, they will begin learning in proportion to their particpation. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You.
