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

Auto-suggestion-

  1. The hypnotic or subconscious adoption of an idea that one
    has originated oneself, e.g. through repetition of verbal
    statements to oneself in order to change behavior.

  2. a process of suggestion in which the person unconsciously
    supplies or consciously attempts to supply the means of
    influencing his own behavior or beliefs.

    To quote Napoleon Hill, “It is the agency of communication
    between that part of the mind where conscious thought takes
    place, and that which serves as the seat of action for the
    subconscious mind. Through the dominating thoughts which one
    permits to remain in the conscious mind, (whether these
    thoughts be negative or positive, is immaterial), the principle
    of auto-suggestion voluntarily reaches the subconscious mind
    and influences it with these thoughts.”

    Hear my story of the anatomy of the self-talk. James is in the doctor’s
    office ringing and wiping his hands together. He is depressed
    and down on himself. “Doc, what can I do? I just ca n’t get
    it all together. I can’t win for losing. I can’t seem to get a
    handle on life. Is there anything I can take?” James asked.

    “Yes, you need to change you’re your self-talk.” Said the doctor.

    “What do you mean ‘change my self-talk’?” ask James.

    “James, I have a big pill for you to sallow. You used the words
    ‘I can’t’ several times. It is time to say, “I can” “I will”
    and change from ‘impossible’ to I’m possible.

    James return to the doctor a few months later. His first words
    to the Doctor where, “Thank you doctor.” I took the words you
    said and work out of my self-talk. I look for a positive message
    to make my own. I found that there no better message than the 8
    positive emotions from a study of Think and Grow Rich.”

    "I repented that message or self-talk 100’s or 1000’s of time daily.
    ‘I believe and live in the positive emotions given to me by God of
    desire, faith, love, sex, enthusiasms. romance, hope, and prosperity.’
    Doc I am a new man, thanks.”

    If I haven’t mentioned my first name is James. The story is real.
    On one of the early calls, I was talked about my inability to dream.
    It was my friend and personal mentor, Dr. Michael Dlouhy who told
    to look to the positive emotion. It was from that suggest or idea
    that I create my first self-talk and my life changed.

    Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy helps me to dream again. Thank
    you to Bob Shoaf allowing to partner with him. My gratitude to this
    mastermind members for the wisdom you share weekly. My deep
    appreciation the those who downloaded the e-book and allow me to
    serve them.
