Think and Grow Rich

Chapter 12

The Subconscious Mind

When we speak of the subconscious mind, we are speaking about that part of the mind where long held beliefs are kept. Most of the time we are not aware that we have these beliefs, but they are what drives our behaviors and actions.

Napoleon wrote; “You can not entirely control your subconscious mind, but you can voluntarily hand over to it any plan, desire, or purpose which you wish transformed into concrete form.” This would be done using auto-suggestion. Basically, you could lie to yourself and eventually your subconscious will believe it to be true; the thought will become second nature. Napoleon continued, “Remember, your subconscious mind functions voluntarily, whether you make any effort to influence it or not. This naturally, suggests to you that thoughts of fear and poverty, and all negative thoughts serve as stimuli to your subconscious mind unless, you master these impulses and give it more desirable food upon which it may feed.”

Positive emotions will occupy your mind, if you put the work in to change the negative ones. Because many of the negative thoughts and emotions have been programmed into us at an early age; from parents, family, friends and teachers-they are the ones that easily occupy our minds as adults. Fill your mind with the positive and the negative can not occupy the mind.

Several things should be kept in mind if you want to change those negative thoughts in your subconscious mind. MAKE YOUR DESIRES CLEAR, REDUCE THEM TO WRITING, BE PERSISTENT, and MAKE IT A HABIT TO THINK POSITIVELY.

“Everything which man creates, BEGINS in the form of a thought impulse. Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in THOUGHT.”

I want to thank everyone in our Mentoring for Free group for being supportive and making it a lot easier to be positive
