Take Inventory of Yourself, As You Read This

Closing Chapter, and Find Out How Many of the

"Ghosts" Are Standing in Your Way

INDECISION, DOUBT, and FEAR  -- These are three negatives

which cannot be present for the Sixth Sense to function.  

Where one is found the other two are close at hand.

INDECISION  is the seedling of FEAR!  Remember this, 

as you read.  Indecision crystalizes into DOUBT, the two

blend and become FEAR!  The "blending" process often is

slow.  This is one reason why these three enemies are so

dangerous.  They germinate and grow without their presence

being observed.

THE SIX BASIC FEARS

The fear of POVERTY

The fear of CRITICISM

The fear of ILL HEALTH

The fear of LOSS OF LOVE OF SOMEONE

The fear of OLD AGE

The fear of DEATH

Fears are nothing more than states of mind.  One's state of mind

is subject to control and direction.

THE FEAR OF POVERTY

There can be no compromise between POVERTY and RICHES!

The two roads that lead to poverty and riches travel in opposite

directions.  The starting point of the path that leads to riches is 

DESIRE.  A state of mind is something that one assumes.  It cannot

be purchased; it must be created.

Fear of poverty is a state of mind, nothing else!  But it is sufficient

to destroy one's chances of achievment in any undertaking, a 

truth which became painfully evident during the depression.

THE FEAR OF CRITICISM

The fear of criticism robs man of his initative, destroys his power

of imagination, limits his individuality, takes away his self-

reliance, and does him damage in a hundred other ways.  Parents

often do their children irreparable injury by criticizing them.

Criticism will plant FEAR in the human heart, or resentment, but

it will not build love or affection.

Deliberately seek the company of people who influence you to 

THINK AND ACT FOR YOURSELF.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform 

for all of us to learn and grow into the people that we were meant

to be

Love to all
