Chapter 4 Auto-Suggestion



Nature has so built man that he has ABSOLUTE CONTROL over the material which reaches his subconscious mind, through his five senses, although this is not meant to be construed as a statement that man always EXERCISES this control. In the great majority of instances, he does NOT exercise it, which explains why so many people go through life in poverty.


AUTOSUGGESTION is the agency of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind.


Sometimes you must burn some bridges just to create some distance.  If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down.

 "You become that to which you are most exposed." ~ Denis Waitley  

"Whatever goal you give to your subconscious mind; it will work night and day to achieve." ~ Jack Canfield


A while back I decided to cut ties with several people because they were no good for me.  I told my subconscious that I’m going to surround myself with positive people, that have the same dreams that I do!!!  Most of the people that I once associated with are employees, with no desire to be anything more…It’s been said time and time again…You can’t hang out with chickens and expect to soar like an EAGLE!!!

I had to remove myself from the limiting beliefs that these people have and focus on achieving the goals that I’ve set for myself.  I tell myself everyday that I will create time freedom and live life on my terms…



"Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality." ~ Earl Nightingale


Your conscious mind commands and your subconscious mind obeys. Your subconscious mind is an unquestioning servant. It works day and night to make your behavior fit a pattern consistent with your emotionalized thoughts, hopes, and desires. Your subconscious mind grows either flowers or weeds in the garden of your life.


In order to reach your greatest potential, you must change your way of thinking, surround yourself with positive people, continue to feed your subconscious with positivity, and most of all believe in yourself!!!  NEVER GIVE UP…SUCCESS WILL COME!!!


Thank you, Linda and Michael Dlouhy, for showing me the power of my subconscious mind.  Thank you to all of my friends here at MFF for sharing your thoughts, ideas, and positive emotions.
