Chapter 4 - Auto-Suggestion

Hill writes "All sense impressions which are perceived through the five senses, are
stopped by the CONSCIOUS thinking mind, and may be either passed on to the
subconscious mind, or rejected, at will. The conscious faculty serves, therefore,
as an outer-guard to the approach of the subconscious."

In other words, our mind has a guard standing at the door to our subconscious
mind determining whether to let our thouhts in or reject the thoughts out.  That guard
is employed by us and just as an employee or a child, must be trained and taught on
what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is not good, what is positive
and what is negative.  IF, we teach our mind right, it will only allow the right, the good
and the positive into our subconscious mind.  We have absolute contol if we choose to use it.  

However, some become lazy and don't teach or exercise this control and allow everything
and anything to enter.

Hill also tells us "Do not become discouraged, if you cannot control and direct your emotions
the first time you try to do so. Remember, there is no such possibility as SOMETHING FOR
NOTHING. Ability to reach, and influence your subconscious mind has its price, and you
MUST PAY THAT PRICE. You cannot cheat, even if you desire to do so. The price of ability
to influence your subconscious mind is everlasting PERSISTENCE in applying the principles
described here. You cannot develop the desired ability for a lower price. You, and YOU ALONE,
must decide whether or not the reward for which you are striving (the “money consciousness”),
is worth the price you must pay for it in effort."

We have all been around a child that is not trained and the experience is far from pleasant.  
But to be around a child that is trained is a pleasure.  

Do we want our mind to reflect the child not trained, screaming, whining and having a temper
tantrum because they don't get their way.  OR, do we want our mind to reflect the trained child
who is polite and respectful?

As the old saying goes "What we think about, we become."
