Chapter 4-Autosuggestion-The medium for 

Influencing the Subconscious Mind

When using autosuggestion, the most important thing to keep in mind is Concentration. We also must use emotion to work with it.  

I really found this to be an aha moment for me because I can be very emotional with my autosuggestion but my mind can be on other things in my life.  I know that if I really concentrate on the six steps outlined in Chapter 2 and apply emotion to them it will work.  By applying emotion and concentrating on what I am saying I will think again before I do something which does not benefit my business or is not helping  me to grow.

We had a good example with Mr. Barnes who concentrated on what he wanted when he was doing those menial tasks for Mr. Edison.  He listened to what was happening around him that would help him in achieving his goal.  It came five years after he set foot in Mr. Edison’s office.  He heard that the sales agents in the office couldn’t sell this machine that Mr. Edison had invented.  Mr. Barnes jumped at the opportunity by saying that he knew he could sell it.  

Now I know that I must put on some listening ears and have Faith that I will hear or even imagine some steps I can take to attract someone or many friends I haven’t met yet to my business.
