Auto-suggestion is a simple action, but one that can be used in many ways. Napoleon Hill introduces it as a way to build faith, but as you’ll see it’s a useful concept for many things.
What Is Auto-Suggestion?
The proof is simple and easily demonstrated. It is wrapped up in the principle of auto-suggestion. So, let’s center our attention on the subject of self-suggestion, and find out what it is, and what it is capable of achieving.
It is a well known fact that if you repeat something to yourself enough, you will eventually come to believe it, whether the statement is true or false. If a man repeats a lie over and over, he will eventually accept the lie as truth. Moreover, he will believe that it is the truth. Every man (or woman) is what he (she) is, because of the dominating thoughts that person allows to occupy his (her) mind. Thoughts which a man deliberately places in his own mind, and encourages with sympathy, and with which he mixes any one or more of the emotions, constitute the motivating forces that direct and control his every movement, act, and deed!
A Moment Of Truth
There comes now a very significant statement of truth:
Thoughts mixed with any of the feelings of emotions constitute a “magnetic” force which attracts other similar or related thoughts. A thought “magnetized” with emotion in this way can be compared to a seed which, when planted in fertile soil, germinates, grows, and multiplies itself over and over again, until what was originally one small seed becomes countless millions of seeds of the same kind!
Thoughts Are Things
Thoughts are things—it’s a timeless and elemental concept of this book, probably one of the most well-known from it, and one shared with the Law of Attraction–powerful stuff!. And here we see the seed that becomes the root of that concept—building in ourselves a habit of positive thinking capable of supporting the biggest and best things we do!
