As I read this chapter I‘m beginning to feel a sense of maturity or it may be that I’m experiencing mental clarity. I’m not quite sure yet. What I am sure is that I am becoming more thoughtful, hence the title of the book. It’s exciting for me because it’s a sign of change. Change in thought, which leads to change in habit, which leads to change in results.

I had lunch with a family friend on Friday, May 12. She was talking to me about her financial situation. No savings and no investments. Little did she know she represents most people in this great country of opportunity called America. The thought of an unforeseeable retirement scared her. Of course, one would chime in and layout a plan of action. It was an invitation for financial advice or the possible solution to her dilemma by way of a business opportunity.

“When visualizing the money you intend to accumulate (with eyes closed), see yourself rendering the service …” – Napoleon Hill

I stopped at “rendering the service” because I asked myself, “What is service? Is it just the product?” I believe that the combination of all the principles outlined in Hill’s book are what constitute service. It is the service to others. It is the transformation of desiring something (self-serving) into becoming something (servant). Instead of competing I’m adding value.

On a few occasions I heard Michael say, “If you stick around long enough, at least a year, at Mentoring For Free. You’ll be a different person” It’s only been seven months for me. Where did I go?

What does my story have anything to do with autosuggestion?  

“Your subconscious mind will act only upon instructions which are emotionalized and handed over to it with “feeling.” Faith is the strongest and most productive of the emotions.” – Napoleon Hill

To feel is to believe which crystallizes into faith. I believe in my self-talk. My subconscious mind believes in my self-talk. I am its master. Therefore it has to give me what we believe.
