Chapter 12-The Subconscious Mind:
The Connecting Link

“Understand this truth, thoughts which go out from one’s mind,
also imbed themselves deeply in one’s subconscious mind, where
they serve as a magnet, pattern, or blueprint by which the
the subconscious mind is influenced while translating them into
their physical equivalent.

“Thoughts are truly things, for the reason that every material
thing begins in the form of thought-energy. Warning, be very
careful of what thoughts you allow into your subconscious mind
for that which is put in is what will come out.

“The subconscious mind is more susceptible to influence by impulses
of thought mixed with “feeling” or emotion, than by those originating
solely in the reasoning portion of the mind. In fact, there is much
evidence to support the theory, that ONLY emotionalized thoughts have
any ACTION influence upon the subconscious mind.” Napoleon Hill  

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your
life.” Proverb 4:23 (NLT} Better yet, “Be careful what you think,
because your thoughts run your life.” Proverbs 4:23 (NCV)

They are there when I wake up in the morning and went I close my eyes
at night. They can and will control how I felt in the morning, and as I go
to sleep. They have often caused my emotions to feel out of control, making
me feel out of control, too. Often how I reacted to situations or conversations
will be dictated by them. If left unchecked they can cause me to feel offended,
angry, or hurt, whether it was truly real or not. They can remind me of my
shortcomings or my strength. They make me feel inferior at times and invincible
at others.

Who are “they” that have so much power in my life?

You may have guessed it: MY THOUGHTS! Those thoughts, ideas, and hunches I
plant or allow others to sow into my subconscious mind. This is the reason
I choose to give heed to Hills warning, “Warning be very careful of what
thoughts you allow into your subconscious mind for that which is put in is
what will come out.”

As I am writing this lesson, I am looking at a picture of Connie sitting in
front of me. I am reminded of how beautiful she was, all the joy she brought
to my life, and what a special person she was. Yes, I have moments of sadness,
loneliness, and tears, yet her smile, love, and passion drive the negative
away in short order.

These are the same messages or thoughts I choose to drive toward and feed to
my subconscious mind and my desire to succeed in Network Marketing and as a
mentor. A love for serving others, build to better tomorrow for my family,
a joy for life, and an eternal assurance of real hope.

Many thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for laying this foundation for me to
better seed and feed my subconscious mind. Thanks to everyone who participates
in the weekly calls, writes great lessons, and share your brilliance.
