Chapter 15 - How to Outwit the Six Ghosts of Fear


As I read and listened to Chapter 15 about fear, I thought about my own fears and how they have literally stopped me from living.

There are seven basic fears which hold many people in bondage their whole life.  We can never achieve success until we master these seven fears.

I have chosen to talk about the fear of poverty.  The fear of povery is a state of mind.  It is the most destructive of all the six basic fears.  There are two roads; one that leads to poverty and one that leads to riches.  The choice we make is ours.

Depending on our state of mind we either live in poverty or in riches, but we cannot have both.  We must programme our mind with a “success consciousness” before we can attract success.  This is why saying our positive self-talk throughout the day is so important. 

For example: If we always speak of poverty then we are directing our mind power to attract theses undesirasble circumstances to us.  It is so true, because whatever your mind feeds upon, your mind will always attract that which it believes in.  The results are either fear-based or faith based.

As I was coming home the other day I realized that all of our “six ghosts of fear” are only states of mind that we can master so that we can live a life of abundance.
