Good day to my precious steemit family in this new month. Think and Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill

Chapter 4 Auto-Suggestion

The Third Step Toward Riches

Napoleon defines auto-suggestion as “the medium for influencing the subconscious mind.” “Auto-suggestion is a term which applies to all suggestions and all self-administered stimuli which reach one’s mind through the five senses.”

Self suggestion is the means of communication between the part of the mind where conscious thought takes place and that which serves as the seat of action for the subconscious mind. By the principle of auto-suggestion, the dominant thoughts that permeate in the conscious mind {whether they are positive or negative} get to the subconscious mind which is then influenced by those thoughts.

Furthermore, only thoughts that come from the ether, no other thoughts can enter the subconscious mind except through the principle of auto-suggestion. The conscious mind acts as outer-guard for the subconscious mind

More importantly, man has control over that which reaches his subconscious mind through his five senses. However, the majority of the time man does not exert this control. As a result, this is the reason why so many people live lives of poverty instead of riches or abundance.

Auto-suggestion is the means of control by which one voluntarily provides his subconscious mind on creative thoughts or destructive thoughts that enter the fertile soil of the mind. Your subconscious mind acknowledges and acts only on thoughts that have been mixed with feeling or emotion.

“Plain, unemotional words do not influence the subconscious mind. You will get no appreciable results until you learn to reach your subconscious mind with thought or spoken words which have been well emotionalized with belief.”

There is no such thing as something for nothing. When you are able to reach and influence your subconscious mind, there is a price that you have to pay for doing so. The price you have to pay is everlasting persistence. Therefore, it is important that you decide whether the reward for which you strive {the money consciousness} is worth the price you have to pay.

Finally, the principle of auto-suggestion will work for anyone once it is properly applied. “Man may become the master of himself and of his environment because he has the power to influence his own subconscious mind and through it, gain the cooperation of infinite intelligence.”

I have this book on my shelf and read passages every now and again. I completely get it and what I also get is the need to keep repeating the process and to move on to allow things to flourish. Great post. I am studying philosophy, so I find things like this really interesting. Particularly when it comes to attraction laws and manifestation.

Thanks very much Madam. Sarah, I love reading motivational books to make me determined in life because it serves as a motivation to my soul.
