Unformatted text preview: he main reason the majority of
people who try to apply the principle of auto-suggestion get no desirable results.
Plain, unemotional words do not inﬂuence the subconscious mind. You will get
no appreciable results until you learn to reach your subconscious mind with
thoughts, or spoken words which have been well emotionalized with BELIEF.
Do not become discouraged, if you cannot control and direct your emotions the
ﬁrst time you try to do so. Remember, there is no such possibility as SOMETHING
FOR NOTHING. Ability to reach, and inﬂuence your subconscious mind has its
price, and you MUST PAY THAT PRICE. You cannot cheat, even if you desire
to do so. The price of ability to inﬂuence your subconscious mind is everlasting
PERSISTENCE in applying the principles described here. You cannot develop the
desired ability for a lower price. You, and YOU ALONE, must decide whether or
not the reward for which you are striving (the “money consciousness”), is worth
the price you must pay for it in effort. 59 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH Wisdom and “cleverness” alone, will not attract and retain money except in a
few very rare instances, where the law of averages favors the attraction of money
through these sources. The method of attracting money described here, does not
depend upon the law of averages. Moreover, the method plays no favorites. It will
work for one person as effectively as it will for another. Where failure is experienced, it is the individual, not the method, which has failed. If you try and fail,
make another effort, and still another, until you succeed.
Your ability to use the principle of auto-suggestion will depend, very largely, upon
your capacity to CONCENTRATE upon a given DESIRE until that desire becomes
a BURNING OBSESSION.
When you begin to carry out the instructions in connection with the six steps
described in the second chapter, it will be necessary for you to make use of the
principle of CONCENTRATION.
Let us here offer suggestions for the effective use of concentration. When you
begin to carry out the ﬁrst of the six steps, which instructs you to “ﬁx in your
own mind the EXACT amount of money you desire,” hold your thoughts on that
amount of money by CONCENTRATION, or ﬁxation of attention, with your eyes
closed, until you can ACTUALLY SEE the physical appearance of the money. Do
this at least once each day. As you go through these exercises, follow the instructions given in the chapter on FAITH, and see yourself actually IN POSSESSION
OF THE MONEY!
Here is a most signiﬁcant fact-the subconscious mind takes any orders given it in
a spirit of absolute FAITH, and acts upon those orders, although the orders often
have to be presented over and over again, through repetition, before they are interpreted by the subconscious mind. Following the preceding statement, consider
the possibility of playing a perfectly legitimate “trick” on your subconscious mind,
by making it believe, because you believe it, that you must ha...
