Chapter 15-Outwitting the Ghosts of Fear

Fears are nothing more than states of mind.  Napoleon Hill

What I have learned in reading this book, is that we are all subject to Fear in many different forms..  What needs to be remembered however is that we were created by an infinite intelligence that gave us the power of thought.  We can use this thought in a positive way or a negative way.  

In order to live a happy and fruitful life we must bring ourselves to account every single day.  We must learn to evaluate ourselves in an objective way with no excuses. When we find flaws in the way we behave we take a positive attitude toward our evaluation and vow to do better the next time we encounter the situation which didn’t go right.

It is important to develop friendships where we can share our thoughts and learn from one another what is the best way to deal with a situation.  Our Mentoring for Free group is such a group and it admirable that we can share and not be judged.  

Thank you all for letting me share.  Let’s keep this group growing so its influence will make a difference in the world.
