The subconscious mind is like
a film in a movie camera, a tape in a tape recorder or a chip
in a computer. Knowledge is stored permanently.
We know that humans never
forget anything. Every experience we've had is indelibly
recorded within us. We may lose the powers of conscious recall,
but under deep psychoanalysis, we can usually recollect
experiences that have long been forgotten in the depths of our
When you exercise positive
believing by imaging, visualizing or picturing in your mind
what you desire, you are in effect making a cybernetic imprint.
Your strongly held beliefs leave an indelible stamp on your
subconscious, almost like a tattoo on the skin. As you evaluate
the thoughts you allow into your conscious mind, remember: Each

Fears are nothing more than

people, daily, who were suffering from such contagious diseases
as small-pox, without becoming infected. Their immunity against
the disease consisted, largely, if not solely, in their
absolute lack of FEAR.
There are six basic fears with
which every human suffers at one time or another. Most people
are fortunate if they do not suffer from the entire six.
Sometimes they remain hidden in the subconscious mind, where
they are difficult to locate, and still more difficult to

habits of these subtle enemies. Before we can master an enemy,
we must know its name, its habits, and its place of abode. Make

Fear” are standing in your way of the success and happiness you

that "Life is a checkerboard, and the player opposite you is
TIME. If you hesitate before moving, or neglect to move
promptly, your men will be wiped off the board by TIME. You are
