In Napoleon Hill’s book, “Think and Grow Rich” he writes about auto-suggestion, the third step to riches. This is just one step of the thirteen he goes over in great detail. Mr. Hill defines the term auto-suggestion:
“Auto-suggestion is a term which applies to all suggestions and all self-administered stimuli which reach one’s mind through the five senses. Stated in another way, auto-suggestion is self-suggestion. It is the agency of communication between that part of the mind where conscious thought takes place, and that which serves as the seat of action for the subconscious mind.”
The subconscious mind accepts and believes the information which the conscious mind feeds it on a regular basis. Anything we think or say over and over will become an intrinsic part of our character. We can condition our subconscious mind to hold only positive self-beliefs, and therefore will become the reality we experience. For example, one who say, “I am happy!” everyday is more likely experience more happiness in their life than someone who say, “I’m depressed.”
Since becoming a student of the book “Think and Grow Rich,” I have developed a personal testimony of auto-suggestion. I used to be a VERY negative person and blamed everyone but myself for my problems and present condition in life. I had to consciously think about and say to myself, even out loud at times, that “today is going to be a great day! I am positive! I am motivated! And I am full of happiness!” At first, it was a bunch of bullarkey, but over the next month or two I really did begin to be more positive, motivated, and experienced more happiness in my life!
“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.”
Auto-Suggestion in 3 Easy Steps
- Write down what you DESIRE. If you want to be happy, pen “I am happy.”
- Believe and feel that your DESIRE will be manifested.
- Say it out loud AND within your mind several times a day.
Keep in mind that 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.
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.
“No thought, whether it be negative or positive, can enter the subconscious mind without the aid of the principle of auto-suggestion.”
When I first read the book, “Think and Grow Rich,” it was more spiritual in nature for me than acquiring wealth. I’ve tried reading it in the past, but never could get past the first chapter and looking back on it now I can see that I wasn’t ready for the truths and principles contained within.
I am now reading it for the third time and studying the principles and putting it to action! Especially auto-suggestion. All I know is that success leaves clues, and if reading, studying, and applying the principles of the book “Think and Grow Rich” has made people wealthy and successful?…COUNT ME IN! I will persist until I succeed!
Remember, YOU have the CHOICE to make it a GREAT day!
