Man was designed to be in control of his life in all aspects—even in the control of the subconscious mind. As Napoleon Hill points out in this passage, however, we seem to have lost the knowledge of that control, and so with it the ability to maintain control over our thoughts and mindset, to the detriment of our financial success.
Man Designed For Absolute Control
Man has been designed by Nature to have absolute control over what information reaches his subconscious mind through his five senses; however, this does not mean that man always exercises this control. In the great majority of instances, people do not exercise such control, which explains why so many people spend their lives living on the financial edge.
The Abundance You Propagate
Recall what was said about the subconscious mind resembling a fertile garden plot, where weeds will abundantly grow if the seeds of more desirable crops are not planted there. Auto-suggestion is the means of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind positive and creative thoughts, or, by neglect, allow destructive thoughts to find their way into this rich garden of the mind.
Seeds Of Success
The last of the six steps outlined in the chapter on Desire instructed you to read aloud twice daily the written statement of your desire for money, and to see and feel yourself already in possession of the money! By following these instructions, you communicate the object of your desire directly to your subconscious mind in a spirit of absolute faith. By repeating this process, you voluntarily create thought habits that are favorable to your efforts to transform desire into money.
Go back to these six steps described in chapter two, and read them again, very carefully, before you go further. Then (when you come to it), very carefully read the four instructions for the organization of your “Master Mind” group described in the chapter on Organized Planning. By comparing these two sets of instructions with what has been laid out in regards to auto-suggestion, you will, of course, see that the instructions involve applying the principle of auto-suggestion.
Start Planting Today
We all need to plant in our minds the right thoughts and emotions for success—thoughts of success and positivity, of possibility, opportunity, and ability. We need to believe in those thoughts, and not just consciously, but subconsciously as well so as to create a whole-being of success and wealth.
There is no time like the present, as the saying goes, and absolutely no reason or need to wait to start planting the seeds that will be your success. Start today to attach feeling and emotion to your conscious thoughts and grow a healthy mind of positivity and success.
