Think & Grow Rich Lessons

Hill states “auto suggestion is the agency of control which an individual may voluntarily feed the subconscious mind thoughts of  a creative nature or, by neglect, permits thought of destructive nature to find their way into the rich garden of the mind.” Hill as well states we were built to have absolute control over the material, which reaches our subconscious mind.  


In other words we have the tools through our senses to control what enters our minds.   This can make us successful or not in the long run. Unfortunately, a majority of humans in this world do not exercise this control and let the negatives in their subconscious mind. In turn they fall into a life of poverty or if lucky a life of quiet desperation!


Humans are more vulnerable than ever before to falling into this trip.  I do not remember having cable TV in our home till I was around ten years old. Then we only had about twenty-five extra channels.  It was at least another decade before I had my own personal computer and I did not know one person who had a cell phone.  


The primary entertainment was books, games, few cable channels and my favorite playing outside.  I remember the days where we would play outside from sun up to sundown.  It was easy to dream as a kid at that time.


The present is completely different.  Along with thousands of cable channels, there are streaming services, high speed Internet, fancy mobile phones with the capability of turning down the temperature of your home from another continent.   Some of these advances are positive. 


Can find the score of a ball game in an instant from almost anywhere and we now have the technology to do virtual face-to-face meetings.  These are a few of the positives.


The con to today is much of the information that flows through wireless waves is negative.  It used to be a twenty-four hour news cycle, now it is a sixty second-news cycle. 


Very little of the news put out is positive either.  I don’t now how you feel, but I am sick of hearing about CoVid and all the restrictions that came from it.  The economy is bad and the wealthy never pay their fair share and that is why most people are in poverty.   In other words many people are victims.   BLAH! BLAH! BLAH!


Most if not all on this call see right through this nonsense.  CoVid is here, is no joke, but is not the end of the world. Use common sense and you should be okay. The economy has had challenges this past year, but this has nothing to do with the entrepreneurs and other go getters in the world.  


Can point fingers, but what will it solve? Nothing. 


The point I am making here is one could hear this information multiple times a day if they keep talk radio, cable news network, or internet news page up.


In turn one will be feeding their mind with thoughts of destructive nature.  


Like eating a poor diet or a bad computer program. Garbage in will mean Garbage out!


Again as Michael says, stay away from the news as much as possible and do not waste your time arguing with pinheads on social media.  Many of them do this because they do see anything else to do with their time.


Shut the media of, listen to a personal development program, read a book, or go exercise.


As Jim Rohn said, “ We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.”   Associate with people that are going in the same direction we are going.


This is why Mentoring for Free is so great. Thank you Michael and Linda Dlouhy for this wonderful program. Thank you Rick Burnett for contacting me that day.  Thank you to everyone who participates on these weekly calls.


Romans chapter twelve verse number two, “Do not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
