What is Think and Grow Rich about? Chapter 4
Now, a few weeks ago you could have told me that auto suggestion has something to do with electronics or automobiles and I would not have known the difference.
But luckily today is a lot different, I am wiser and smarter now. I know now that auto suggestion is the way in which I can influence and change my subconscious mind.
Or in other words, self suggestion. It’s the communication between the conscious mind, and the subconscious mind.
I have been practicing everything as suggested and described in the previous chapters. And I must say that I am seeing results in myself. Positive growth. I am better and stronger already.
Now it’s time for me to see what will happen when I add the principle of auto suggestion on top of what I’ve already been doing and achieving thus far. And I must say, I am really looking forward to the results.
My understanding of the principle of auto suggestion is, to change certain pieces or aspects in your subconscious mind in order to achieve the desired results. It’s kind of like repetition, but not just any old repetition like we’ve been told so many times.
Its repetition or a certain way of repetition combined with emotion, and feeling.
You have to belief first of all. Then have faith in yourself and your abilities and your beliefs. Then repeat this to yourself as the book describes with added emotion and feeling.
Once you read it a few times and you really explore what the chapter says then you realize how easy it is to implement the principle of auto suggestion in your everyday life.
I like how he describes the mind as a fertile garden, and that with persistence and the use of all the principles combined makes for a very powerful life changing formula.
