This chapter is undoubtable the most important in the book. Our three major enemies are indecision, doubt, and fear. If anyone of the three negatives are present, the Six Sense will never function. The Six Sense is that inter guidance that makes Desire work. The Six Basic Fears become translated into a state of worry, through indecision. I quote from Hill’s book.
“Relieve yourself, forever of the fear of death, by reaching a decision to accept death as an inescapable event.
Whip the fear of poverty by reaching a decision to get along with whatever wealth you can accumulate WITHOUT WORRY.
Put your foot upon the neck of the fear of criticism by reaching a decision NOT TO WORRY about what other people think, do, or say.
Eliminate the fear of old age by reaching a decision to accept it, not as a handicap, but as a great blessing which carries with it wisdom, self-control, and understanding not known to youth.
Acquit yourself of the fear of ill health by the decision to forget symptoms. Master the fear of loss of love by reaching a decision to get along without love, if that is necessary.
Kill the habit of worry, in all its forms, by reaching a general, blanket decision that nothing which life has to offer is worth the price of worry. With this decision will come poise, peace of mind, and calmness of thought which will bring happiness.
A man whose mind is filled with fear not only destroys his own chances of intelligent action, but, he transmits these destructive vibrations to the minds of all who come into contact with him, and destroys, also their chances.”
As Micheal says – The way you do anything is the way you do everything, the way we reach and make decisions effects of lives.
