CHAPTER 4- AUTO-SUGGESTION
THE MEDIUM FOR INFLUENCING
THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

“Man may become the master of himself, and of his environment, because
he has the POWER TO INFLUENCE HIS OWN SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, and
through it,gain the cooperation of Infinite Intelligence.”
Napoleon Hill

From the beginning when I realize that is a power, a source or an energy
greater myself, I have wanted to connected with it or Him as I know now.
Yes, this infinite intelligence, God for me, has place within me the power
to master myself. He made me for success, not to live in failure. I have
been given the will to heed and influence that inner voice planted deep
within my subconscious mind. I have the cooperation of God to make me as
He wants me to be.

I have been given absolute control over the materials or thoughts which
reaches my subconscious mind. I have been given the ability to filter
everything I see, hear, taste, smell or touch. This is the gift to choose
what and how to think. I can influence my subconscious mind, I can change
those messages of the past. I can stop the voices of the negative emotions
and awaken the power of the positive emotions given to by God.

“AUTOSUGGESTION is the agency of control through which an individual may
voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature,
or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way
into this rich garden of the mind.”

This autosuggestion or self-talk is the resource given to us to make changes
necessary to have the success or riches which awaits us. We have the instructions
in the reading of Think and Grow Rich, go to steps of chapter 2 put them in
writing.  Read them aloud with emotion twice a day. Take the time to concentrate
on that which you are telling yourself. Have the faith to see the success that is ours.

Here is an example we each use, just fill in the blanks:  On December 31st ___(year)_______
I have $_________ on deposit. I will have a residual income of $__________ on July 31 ,
__(year)_____. I will give service to other by mentoring those seeking help in
building up themselves and creating an income from home.

I have built my self-talk around the statement above with a focus on my why. This
I repeat 100’s of time daily even to the point it is on auto-play in my mind and
heart. I would encourage everyone create your self-talk, really make it yours,
repeat it often daily, and put it in your heart and mind.

Thanks again to Linda and Michael Dlouhy who built this mastermind with their
self-talk those many years ago. Thanks to Ken Klemm and Bob Shoaf in being live
examples of the power of self-talk. To each on the calls, thanks for your of
being here and sharing your wisdom.
