Chapter 12 Subconscious Mind

Napoleon Hill says,”You may VOLUNTARILY plant in your subconsconscious mind any plan, thought, or purpose which you desire to translate into its physical or monetary equivalent. The subconscious acts first on the dominating desires which have been mixed with emotional feeling, such as faith.”

Using the above quote as a guide we can, that is me, myself and I for each person, may voluntarily plant in our subconscious mind any plan, thought, or purpose which we desire to translate into its physical or monetary equivalent.  The dominating desires of each one of us must be mixed with emotional feeling such as faith.  It all comes back to SELF.  

Mr. Hill also says,”Through a method of procedure, unknown to man, the subconscious mind draws upon the forces of infinite intelligence for the power with which it voluntarily transmutes one’s desires into their physical equivalent.”  

We do not have control over the method of procedure except to think of what we can do with what thoughts get into our subconscious mind.  It all comes back again to SELF  snd the discipline we use to control our thoughts.  This means to control what comes into our subconscious mind from the ether, some other person’s subconscious mind and what others say to influence us.  

We must use our SELF-DISCIPLINE.  Being proactive and having Faith that we are in control is the answer.  Talking to our subconscious mind with positive self-talk is what is needed.
