Build confidence in yourself. Action reduces fear, so act. Take small steps at first: Sit in the front everywhere you go, practice eye contact, contact, walk 25% faster, practice speaking up,smile big, use positive words. Think and dream creatively. Believe that it can be done and then the mind finds a way to get it done. Be open to new ideas and be progressive. Stimulate yourself with diverse ideas from diverse people. Capacity is a state of mind. You are what you think. “The price tag you put on yourself, is probably the same price tag that the world will put on you.” Dress up. Think your work is important. Think enthusiastically. Ask yourself if you are the type of manager that a subordinate would respect and follow? Manage your environment because it is food for your mind. People who tell you that it cannot be done are usually unsuccessful people. Make your attitudes your allies. Live it up. Broadcast good news. Do better work than others expect. Remember people’s names. Take initiative to build friendships. Talk less. Listen. Get the action habit. Nothing happens just by thinking. Start now. Do not worry about problems.You can handle them as they come. Successful people handle problems as they arise. Turn defeat into Victory. Defeat is a state of mind. Think that there is a way. If it does not work, then back off and start afresh. Use goals to help you grow. “The important thing is not where you were or where you are but where you want to get.” Know where you want to go. Visualize your future. Achieving success requires the help of others. Trade minds with the people you want to influence. “What would I think if I were that person?” Be human, and put people first. Think big enough to see that if you put service first, money takes care of itself. Think Big

Action reduces fear, so act.
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. Through the dominating thoughts which one permits to remain in the conscious mind, (whether these thoughts be negative or positive, is immaterial), the principle of auto–‐suggestion voluntarily reaches the subconscious mind and influences it with these thoughts. NO THOUGHT, whether it be negative or positive, CAN ENTER THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND WITHOUT THE AID OF THE PRINCIPLE OF AUTO–‐SUGGESTION, with the exception of thoughts picked up from the ether. Stated differently, all sense impressions which are perceived through the five senses, are stopped by the CONSCIOUS thinking mind, and may be either passed on to the subconscious mind, or rejected, at will. The conscious faculty serves, therefore, as an outer–‐guard to the approach of the subconscious. Nature has so built man that he has ABSOLUTE CONTROL over the material which reaches his subconscious mind, through his five senses, although this is not meant to be construed as a statement that man always EXERCISES this control. In the great majority of instances, he does NOT exercise it, which explains why so many people go through life in poverty. Recall what has been said about the subconscious mind resembling a fertile garden spot, in which weeds will grow in abundance, if the seeds of more desirable crops are not sown therein. AUTOSUGGESTION is the agency of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind. You were instructed, in the last of the six steps described in the chapter on Desire, 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. Through repetition of this procedure, you voluntarily create thought habits which are favorable to your efforts to transmute desire into its monetary equivalent. Go back to these six steps described in chapter two, and read them again, very carefully, before you proceed further. Then (when you come to it), read very carefully 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 that which has been stated on auto–‐suggestion, you, of course, will see that the instructions involve the application of the principle of auto–‐suggestion.
