It happens to everyone, getting to your final destination but not remembering driving there, waking up in the middle of the night with a brilliant idea or remembering something that you couldn’t remember yesterday. These are all examples of your subconscious taking control. The subconscious mind is working all of the time like an unfaltering database storing every memory and every emotional reaction to that memory in the mind. The subconscious will collect both positive and negative emotions so it is up to you to safeguard your internal database with thoughts and emotions that make you feel good. Napoleon Hill lists the Seven Major Positive and Negative emotions as:
Desire, Faith, Love, Sex Enthusiasm, Romance and Hope
Fear, Jealousy, Hatred, Revenge, Greed, Superstition, and Anger
Focusing on the positive will empower you to influence the subconscious mind to serve up to the universe the very things that you believe you deserve in your life. Thoughts that are charged with emotion have the potential to create, and because of this it is imperative that your conscious mind examines every thought pattern and keeps the positive and retrains or dismisses the negative.
The discipline of recognizing thought impulses allows us to control or program our internal database so that we can use thoughts to create new realities in our lives. Napoleon Hill talks about disciplining our minds in Think and Grow Rich through the tool of auto-suggestion. Consistent and continuous positive self-talk will always reframe the mind into only thinking about desires and reject the thinking and emotions that will hinder us from success.
