Personal Development, Finance and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.
Remember, your subconscious mind functions voluntarily, whether you make any effort to influence it or not. This naturally suggests to you that thoughts of fear and poverty, and all negative thoughts, serve as stimuli to your subconscious mind, unless you master these impulses and give it more desirable food upon which it may feed.
The subconscious mind will not remain idle. If you fail to plant desires in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thoughts that reach it as the result of your neglect.
It is sufficient to remember that you are living daily in the midst of all manner of thought impulses that are reaching your subconscious mind, without your knowledge. Some of these impulses are negative, some are positive.
Everything that is created begins in the form of a thought impulse. Nothing can created that is not first conceived in thought. Through the aid of imagination, thought impulses may be assembled into plans.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, a famous poet and journalist of the late 19th and early 20th century, gave evidence of her understanding of the power of the subconscious mind when she wrote:
You never can tell what a thought will do
Ms. Wilcox understood the truth that thoughts which go out from one's mind also embed themselves deeply in one's subconscious, where they serve as a magnet, pattern or blueprint by which the subconscious mind is influenced while translating them into their physical equivalent. Thoughts are truly things, for the reason that every material thing begins in the form of thought-energy.
The subconscious mind is more susceptible to influence by impulses of thought mixed with feeling or emotion than by those originating solely in the reasoning portion of the mind. In fact, there is much evidence to support the theory that only emotionalized thoughts have any action influence upon the subconscious mind. It is well-known fact that emotion or feeling rules the majority of people.
According to Napoleon Hill, there are seven major positive emotions and seven major negative emotions. The negatives voluntarily inject themselves into the thought impulses, ensuring their passage into the subconscious mind. The positives must be injected, through the principle of autosuggestion, into the thought impulses that an individual wishes to pass on to the subconscious mind.
Here are the seven major positive emotions and the seven major negative emotions. Draw upon the positives and avoid the negatives when giving instructions to your subconscious mind.
The Seven Major Positive Emotions
There are other positive emotions, but these are the seven most powerful, and the ones most commonly used in creative effort.
The Seven Major Negative Emotions (to be avoided)
Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. One or the other must dominate. It is your responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of your mind.
