Chapter 4 Auto-Suggestion


AUTO-SUGGESTION is a term which applies to all suggestions and all self-administered stimuli which reach one’s mind through the five senses. Stated in another way, autosuggestion is self-suggestion. 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.

There use to be a commercial that had two men walking in the woods, and all of a sudden a huge grizzly bear appeared from behind a tree.  The 1st guy was frightened and feared for his life.  He looked over to the 2nd guy and asked what are we going to do?  The 2nd guy took off his back pack, opened it, and slipped on a pair of Nike running shoes.  He said to the 1st guy I don't know what you're going to do, but all I've got to do is out run you!  At that the 2nd guy took off running through the woods and in his mind he already knew that he would out run the 1st guy.  This is the power of  AUTO-SUGGESTION!

As humans we have the ability to think and control each and every thought or idea that enters our minds whether it be positive or negative.  We become what we allow to infulence us.  You can't make someone change but, your positive energy and attitude will influence the world.  It's a known fact that leaders are readers, a man once said that the difference between success and failure is what you feed your mind.  Many people wish for riches, but even if they get riches and the mind isn't their riches will be short lived...The Good Book says  A Fool and His Money Are Soon Parted -  This phrase is typically used to describe someone who loses their money quickly, either by being tricked or spending it wastefully.   The mind of a fool isn't mature enough to accept riches and this is because of the people they surround themselves with and the things they allow to enter their mind. 

It's been said time and time again "You can't hang out with chickens and expect to soar with EAGLES!!!  If you hang out with 4 people that allow trash and negativity to enter their minds you'll be the 5th. 

Thank you Michael and Linda Dlouhy for being the example that we all need to rid our minds of all trash and negativity, and become someone that has the ability to soar with EAGLES! 

Thank you to each and everyone in this powerful're thoughts and postive energy continue to inspire me more and more each and everyday.
