Chapter 4 - Auto-Suggestion

Hill wrote "Autosuggestion is self-suggestion."

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."

As children we think we can do anything and become anything
we want to.  Then as we grow older we begin to listen to 
others and they don't always tell us the best things. Our 
confidence can begin to dwindle and we begin to think others
know more and understand more than we do and we begin to
distrust our own thoughts, desires, abilities and dreams.
Listening to others we, by neglect "permit thoughts of 
a destructive nature to find their way into this rich 
garden of our mind."

Sometimes we don't even realize that we are thinking others 
thinking and opinions and what they have said to us become 
our self-suggestion.

We may not even notice what we are doing until we begin something
new, like a business of our own and especially Network Marketing.
Then we again begin to listen to the negative opinions of people we know and the
negative thoughts come to our mind and we don't do what we
should be doing because in the back of our mind we are nursing
the negative things we have been told about our abilities or what
we want to accomplish.

Then one day we find our "Knight in shining Armor"  -  the e-book
"Success in 10 Steps" and Mentoring for Free 'Where we Learn How to
think, and not What to think."  We get on the "Think & Grow Rich
Lessons calls, begin posting lessons and participating and we begin
to realize "It does not matter what anyone thinks of me. The only
thing that matters is what I think of myself" and our world begins
to change.

We are taught to say our self- suggestion or self-talk and we realize
it is "Our" self talk and not someone else's self talk about us that
is important. 

Napoleon Hill wrote  "Like the wind that carries one ship east and another 
west, the law of autosuggestion will lift you up or pull you down according 
to the way that you set your sails of thought."
