Autosuggestion _ \"Your ability to use the principle of autosuggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession.\" _ Napoleon Hill Autosuggestion is a process by which an individual trains the subconscious mind to believe something, or systematically schematizes the person\'s own mental associations, usually for a given purpose. One way of utilizing autosuggestion is by simply writing down a few statements such as, \"I earn 贄ꯠ per year\" on an index card, and carry that card at all times. Whenever the moment arises __ first thing in the morning, before retiring to bed, on break at work, etc__ begin reciting what you have written on the card with conviction and an inner belief that what you are saying (have written on the card) about yourself is true! Keep the statements positive and in the present tense because the subconscious mind sees in pictures. For instance, if you were to say, \"I am debt free,\" the subconscious would only see \"debt\" and therefore would focus on obtaining more \"debt.\" A positive, present tense autosuggestion for this idea could be, \"I am financially independent\" or \"Money flows to me easily.\"
Burning Desire _ \"Success is focusing the full power of all you are on what you have a burning desire to achieve.\" _ Wilfred Peterson. The first principle of goal setting is to have a burning desire. This is not something that you can train yourself to have, you either have it or you don\'t. You may be able to stay focused on your task or goal for a short time, but without a burning desire you will inevitably lose steam. Have One Major Goal . (In each area of your life _ spiritual, financial, health, etc.) \"There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.\" _ Napoleon Hill. About 95% of all Americans do not have goals. Out of the remaining 5% of Americans that do have goals, most set too many goals. Why is this a problem? Because without one major definite purpose or goal you have no clarity; you are no closer to accomplishing any of your goals than the 95% of Americans that don\'t set goals at all. Your goals must be clear and specific.
