In this episode, you'll hear Think and Grow Rich Chapter 4 called "Auto-Suggestion."
This is the third step towards riches and "the medium for influencing the subconscious mind."
I recommend listening to this chapter many times. In fact, Napoleon Hill instructs you to read this chapter aloud to yourself every night until you find the principle of auto-suggestion sound.
(The PDF version of this book is linked below).
So why is this so important?
Hill explains that you are the master of yourself and your environment when you influence your subconscious mind. In achieving this control, you gain the cooperation of Infinite Intelligence.
Napoleon Hill likens the subconscious mind to a garden where weeds grow unless you fill it with the seeds of more desirable crops. Ultimately, your outer world produces evidence of what is sown in this mind.
So how do we make sure this mind is tended to properly? This chapter reminds us (multiple times) to go back to Chapter 2 (Desire) and follow the six steps for "transmuting desire into it's financial equivalent."
Here's a link to the steps:
Hill also cautions you to mix emotion or feelings with the words in those steps; otherwise, you won't experience results. Further, you must continuously repeat the process until you succeed.
Lastly, here's a quote from this chapter:
"Day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better." -- Émile Coué
