How to “Think and Grow Rich”: Chapter 4 Auto-suggestion

Have you read the previous chapters? Great! This chapter is all about giving you the required focus to turn your desire into reality. Normally, you should have wrote your statement and talk about desire and faith but how to put this desire and faith in your success within you? Thanks to the principe of auto-suggestion!

You will get no appreciable results until your learn to reach your subconscious mind with thoughts or spoken words which have been well emotionalised with beliefs.

Mr Napoleon clearly states that justing saying your statement aloud is not enough to bring success. Success will come at you when you’ll act like each spoken words is meaningful. From now, like me, you should have say it twice a day but sometimes without even visualising your words.

In this chapter, Napoleon introduces the principle of concentration: hold your thoughts by concentration until you can actually see the physical appearances of the money. Of course, you can change money with what is meaningful to you (family, health …). I stress on physical appearances here because it’s the trick that will you make you act like you are already successful so you’ll act like you’re successful (I hope for you!).

Napoleon brings the summary of the instruction to make you auto-suggest your success. It’s a three-step to do:

  1. In a quiet spot, recite your statement, see yourself already in the possession of the money
  2. Repeat this program night and morning until you can see in your imagination, the money you intend to accumulate
  3. Place a written copy of your statement where you can see it night and morning, and read it just before retiring, and upon arising until it has been memorised.

This chapter is useful because it reminds us that just saying words is not the magical trick to bring success but rather a mental process where you use words to convince yourself that you’ll succeed. Auto-suggestion helps you reach your subconscious mind. It is interesting to note that he suggests us to come back at this chapter when we’ll finish the book. I’m already thrilled to finish it! Aren’t you?
