This is the title of Napoleon Hill’s book, which he did spent 20 years of writing, and what has come out of it? a lot of wealth. My mentor is a very passionate and what I know about right now is that, he is the current, and what I have heard until now, he has studied it the most. He has the habit to say he is reading it every day, and I do actually understand him because I have been in books with an alike meaning. I have read the book myself, in Danish that is, but I haven’t read it so that I would impress myself, and that is the big key.
The impression of things has to occur to change our subconscious mind that is either by positive or negative impression, because it is emotional, like a chock or a surprise, the emotional impact that really changes things in us. The chapter that impressed me more than others or to be exact, two chapters, was the first of a story about this guy who wanted so deeply or this great desire to work as a partner with Andrew Carnegie, and if I remember correctly then he or Napoleon Hill stated, to be sure there is one way and forward is to burn all bridges behind, when I read I was thinking; what if I did that to my past. What would happen to me mentally, would I break down?
The other chapter on self-suggestion, I remember I read it in the train and the bus. On the way out and the way home from work. I actually miss that time, but it’s over. I read and started to think about the self-suggestion chapter once I came across one word after another. I then realized, if I would take one word at a time, picture it myself as a film etc. what would it do to impact me if I did what it said. Then I can now say to you that, the self-suggestion came clear to me that I would take charge over my senses and would have self-control over my five senses. That is enormous.
