Chapter 4 Auto-Suggestion


The Third Step toward Riches

There is a lot of chatter out in the world; it comes from parents, siblings, friends, teachers, relatives, pastors, speakers, bosses, newspaper, television (especially-the-tell-your-vision), radio, etc, all attempting to input their ideas into your mind to move you into their wants and desires. They use repetition and persistence to achieve this and if you are not a guardian of your mind, you will be swept along into what all others want and even possibly oblivious to the fact that you are not living your desires, but other's desires.

Millions of people are repeatedly contributing to this chatter, most of which is just a lot of noise, doing their best to influence you so that they can cause you to follow their wishes. However, they can’t influence your subconscious mind without your allowing them.

The question is, how much of this is aligned with what matters most to you? Chances are that much of this will lead away from what’s most important to you if you don’t guard your mind against what is not helpful to you. Many people don’t do this. They just allow anything to inter their mind and neglect to reject negative thoughts or useless ideas or opinions.

Your mind is a rich garden and it grows whatever is planted in there, whether it’s good or bad, however you can choose what is favourable to you and plant that only, in this garden of your mind, through using autosuggestion.

The Oxford English Dictionary states that autosuggestion is the influencing of your physical or mental states by thoughts and ideas that come from yourself rather than from other people: autosuggestion is the power of mind over matter - if you convince yourself that you are cured, you will be.” 

This chapter teaches how to use autosuggestion correctly and influence the subconscious mind with your burning desire in order to achieve the riches you desire.
