CHAPTER 15 HOW TO OUTWIT
THE SIX GHOSTS OF FEAR

“You have Absolute Control over but one thing, and
that is your thoughts. This is the most significant
and inspiring of all facts known to man! It reflects
man's Divine nature. This Divine prerogative is the
sole means by which you may control your own destiny.
If you fail to control your own mind, you may be sure
you will control nothing else.
If you must be careless with your possessions, let it
be in connection with material things. Your mind is
your spiritual estate!
Protect and use it with the care
to which Divine Royalty is entitled. You were given a
Will-Power for this purpose.” Napoleon Hill

You step out of your car and the first things you do
is to push the lock and alarm button, WHY?

You walk through the doors of your house and you reach
back to the door to turn the deadbolt to lock it, WHY?

You have started your computer and the first thing you
do is to activate the spam and spyware app, WHY?

Why? I do it to protect my property, assets, and personal
security.  I learned “why” after having everything in my
car stolen one night because I forgot to lock it. I know
why” to lock the door to the house after having someone I
did not know just walk in the house un-invited. Yes, I
discover “why” to use a spyware and spam protector because
I have suffered the headache of a corrupted computer.

This being the case, I such take an even great effort to
protect and control my greatest assets MY THOUGHTS. God
handed me this responsibility to me the day I was born. At
a given time when I began to think and reason for myself, I
had the obligation to practice Absolute Control.

Here is where I have to confess all too often, I relinquished
that control to those ghosts of fear. Messages such as “You
will never have..” the echo of poverty. Or, “What will others
think about..” the attack of criticism. I could on and say
\more, but I have “Stop It” to listening or heeding any of
these ghosts of fear,  for that is all they are ghosts which
are “Fears are nothing more than states of mind.”  As stated
above I have been given Absolute Control all of my thought
and I choose to use it.

I have decided to protect my thoughts, to made a searching
and fearless moral inventory of myself and build a wall of
security around my mind. How?

  1. Learn to stop my thoughts and count back from 5.

  2. Identify the negative thoughts and place them in
    quarantine and flash quarantine regularly.

  3. Write my own movie, tape or blueprint of “Knowing
    how to Think” and not live by “Being told what to
    Think”

  4. I will find the lies of the ghosts of fear and erase
    that tape.

  5. I will ask the Infinite Intelligent, God to me,  help me
    recognize accurate truthful information and made that
    my own blueprint.

Thank you, Linda and Michael Dlouhy, you have built and
placed before me a workable system and mastermind, now it
is up me to use it. My gratitude to Bob Shoaf, you are the
older brother I never had and given me a great example to
follow. I count it a prize to have harmonious mastermind
partners whose brilliance are share on the weekly calls.
Thank you, one and all, who have downloaded “Success in 10
Steps” and communicates with me regularly.
