Firstly, you need to realise that you have the ability to achieve your main aim in life so you must have a continual persistent attitude when applying yourself to attain the goal.
Secondly, you must contribute some of your daily time towards positive thinking in relation to who you want to be. Realise that these dominant thoughts will eventually be expressed in the physical actions that will get you where you want to go.
Thirdly, through auto suggestion you need to know how the desire you have in your head will come out as a physical reality, so try and develop self confidence every day.
Fourthly, with your chief aim written down, you must promise yourself that you will never stop trying to achieve it, even if your confidence levels mean that you are not ready. You will take on your objectives when you are confident enough.
Fifthly, you should not step on the toes of others to achieve your goals. You will be able to succeed in a way that benefits those who work with you. A negative attitude to people will not bring success. You will be able to make others believe in you to reaffirm your self belief.
Repeat these five points every day to yourself to influence your subconscious thoughts, and to help make you independent and successful.
Behind the Five points is what psychologists have referred to as auto suggestion.
The point to remember is that thoughts whether they are positive or negative, tend to become expressed by you in a physical way.
So, a thought that is fuelled by fear, will be expressed physically just as a thought that is expressed by faith will be too.

He gambled the money away and was later found in a hotel in a state of depression saying the disgrace would kill him. When he was found dead days later the Doctors said it was a case of “mental suicide”.
This also explains the dangers of letting negative thoughts dominate your subconscious mind.
The principle of auto suggestion can lead you to success, prosperity and happiness just as it can make you miserable and lead you to fail.
