Chapter 15 How to Outwit the Six Ghosts of Fear


Take Inventory of Yourself, As You Read This Closing Chapter, and Find Out How Many of the “Ghosts” Are Standing in Your Way

BEFORE you can put any portion of this philosophy into successful use, your mind must be prepared to receive it. The preparation is not difficult. It begins with study, analysis, and

understanding of three enemies which you shall have to clear out.


There are two levels that we operate on each and every day
The first level is like cruise control;

We go through the emotions, we don’t expect much out of life and we don’t expect much out of ourselves. This is the highway, the entrance ramp is smooth and the path is fast and

we are so used to it that we seek it whenever we are lost!

The second level is the level of greatness;

It’s the dirt road that has no road signs and doesn’t show up on google maps. The path is not an easy one, in fact, it is filled with massive trials that will test your willpower, faith, and

determination. Only by overcoming these fears and taking action can we reach this level!

So, if you today are someone who is on that journey to reach the level of greatness, then you must first get to know yourself on a deeper level. You must identify your fears and know

what to look for when crushing your greatest enemy; the fear within you.

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you

are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”― Maya Angelou

This week my lesson is very deep, I am still going over this chapter. I did want to post something that I felt.  I was able to analyze myself and I can identify which of the six common fears

have attached themselves to me.  I am grateful to say that not all are standing in my way.  I fell I am in the process of developing my necessary STATE OF MIND.  With time and these lessons

I know I will get there.

I appreciate this team, it is helping me to see the light, Thank You.
