Unformatted text preview: inﬂuence upon the subconscious mind.
It is a well known fact that emotion or feeling, rules the majority of people. If it
is true that the subconscious mind responds more quickly to, and is inﬂuenced
more readily by thought impulses which are well mixed with emotion, it is essential to become familiar with the more important of the emotions. There are seven
major positive emotions, and seven major negative emotions. The negatives voluntarily inject themselves into the thought impulses, which insure passage into
the subconscious mind. The positives must be injected, through the principle of
auto-suggestion, into the thought impulses which an individual wishes to pass on
to his subconscious mind. (Instructions have been given in the chapter on autosuggestion.)
These emotions, or feeling impulses, may be likened to yeast in a loaf of bread,
because they constitute the ACTION element, which transforms thought impulses from the passive to the active state. Thus may one understand why thought
impulses, which have been well mixed with emotion, are acted upon more readily
than thought impulses originating in “cold reason.”
You are preparing yourself to inﬂuence and control the “inner audience” of your
subconscious mind, in order to hand over to it the DESIRE for money, which you
wish transmuted into its monetary equivalent. It is essential, therefore, that you
understand the method of approach to this “inner audience.” You must speak its
language, or it will not heed your call. It understands best the language of emotion or feeling. Let us, therefore describe here the seven major positive emotions,
and the seven major negative emotions, so that you may draw upon the positives,
and avoid the negatives, when giving instructions to your subconscious mind.
THE SEVEN MAJOR POSITIVE EMOTIONS
The emotion of DESIRE
The emotion of FAITH
The emotion of LOVE
The emotion of SEX
The emotion of ENTHUSIASM
The emotion of ROMANCE
The emotion of HOPE 183 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH There are other positive emotions, but these are the seven most powerful, and
the ones most commonly used in creative effort. Master these seven emotions
(they can be mastered only by USE), and the other positive emotions will be at
your command when you need them. Remember, in this connection, that you are
studying a book which is intended to help you develop a “money conscious-ness”
by ﬁlling your mind with positive emotions. One does not become money conscious by ﬁlling one’s mind with negative emotions.
THE SEVEN MAJOR NEGATIVE EMOTIONS
(To be avoided)
The emotion of FEAR
The emotion of JEALOUSY
The emotion of HATRED
The emotion of REVENGE
The emotion of GREED
The emotion of SUPERSTITION
The emotion of ANGER
Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. One or
the other must dominate. It is your responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating inﬂuence of your mind. Here the law of HABIT
will come to your aid.
Form the habit of applying and using the positive emotions!...
