INDECISION, DOUBT, and FEAR!
INDECISION is the seedling of FEAR, Remember this, as you read. Indecision
form into DOUBT, the two blend and become FEAR, The blending process
often is slow. This is one reason why these three enemies are so dangerous.
They germinate and grow without their presence being observed
Do not be deceived by the habits of these subtle enemies. Sometimes they remain
hidden in the subconscious mind, where they are difficult to locate, and still more
difficult to eliminate.
THE SIX BASIC FEARS
the fear of POVERTY
The fear of CRITICISM } most of us are
The fear of ILL HEALTH } worries
The fear of LOSS OF LOVE OF SOMEONE
The fear of OLD AGE
The fear of DEATH
All other fears are of minor importance, they can be grouped under these six heading.
THE FEAR OF POVERTY
If you need riches, you must refuse to accept any circumstance that leads toward poverty
The starting point of the path that leads to riches is DESIRE.
if you are willing to accept poverty, you may as well
make up your mind to receive poverty. This is one decision you cannot avoid.
A state of mind is something that one assumes. It cannot be purchased, it must
be created. Fear of poverty is a state of mind, nothing else.
The Fear of Poverty is, without doubt, the most destructive of the six basic fears.
It has been placed at the head of the list, because it is the most difficult to master.
The fear of poverty grew out of man’s inherited tendency to PREY UPON HIS FELLOW MAN ECONOMICALLY.
Nothing brings man so much suffering and humility as POVERTY! Only those
who have experienced poverty understand the full meaning of this.
SYMPTOMS OF FEAR OF POVERTY
INDIFFERENCE. Commonly expressed through lack of ambition; willingness
to tolerate poverty
INDECISION. The habit of permitting others to do one’s thinking. Staying on
DOUBT. Generally expressed through alibis and excuses designed to cover up,
WORRY. Usually expressed by finding fault with others, a tendency to spend
beyond one’s income,
OVER-CAUTION. The habit of looking for the negative side of every circumstance,
thinking and talking of possible failure instead of concentrating upon the
means of succeeding
PROCRASTINATION. The habit of putting off until tomorrow that which should
have been done last year
EXPECTING POVERTY INSTEAD OF DEMANDING RICHES. Association with

MONEY TALKS! AND BULL SHIT WALKS?
When a man is down and out and on the street, unable to get any job at all, something happens to his spirit,which can be in the droop of his shoulders,the set of his hat,his walk and his gaze. He cannot escape a feeling of inferiority among people with regular employment even though he knows they are definitely not his equals in
character,intelligence or ability.
He may borrow for a time, but not enough to carry on in his accustomed way, and he cannot continue to borrow very long.when a man is borrowing merely to live is a
depressing experience, the money lacks the power of earned to revive his spirits.
Of course, none of this applies to bums or habitual doers but only to
men of normal ambitions and self-respect.
THE FEAR OF CRITICISM
Just how man originally came by this fear, no one can state definitely, but one
thing is certain- he has it in a highly developed form.
because of the fear of criticism. Men and women have been burned at
the stake for daring to express disbelief in authority.
it is no wonder we have inherited a consciousness which makes us fear criticism.
the time was, and not so far in the past, when criticism carried severe punishments
and it still does in some countries.
The fear of criticism robs man of his initiative, destroys his power of imagination,
limits his individuality, takes away his self-reliance, and does him damage in a
hundred other ways
Parents often do their children irreparable injury by criticizing them
The mother of one of my boyhood friend used to punish him with
a switch almost daily, always completing the job with the statement, You’ll land
in the penitentiary before you are twenty.
He was sent to a Reformatory at the age of seventeen. Criticism is the one form of service, of which everyone has too much.
One’s nearest relatives often are the worst offenders. It should be recognized
as a crime for any parent to build inferiority complexes in the mind of a child.
employers who understand human nature, get the best there is in men, not by criticism,but by constructive suggestion,parents may accomplish the same results
with their children. Criticism will plant FEAR in the human heart, or resentment,
it will not build love or affection.
This fear is almost as universal as the fear of poverty,its effects are just as
fatal to personal achievement, mainly because this fear destroys initiative, and
discourages the use of imagination.
OLD MAN WORRY
Worry is a state of mind based upon fear. It works slowly, but persistently. It is
insiduous and subtle. Step by step it digs itself in until it paralyzes one’s reasoning
faculty, destroys self-confidence and initiative.
Worry is a form of sustained fear caused by indecision therefore it is a state of mind which can be controlled.
do not worry over conditions, once you have reached a decision to follow a definite line of action.
Kill the habit of worry, in all its forms, by reaching a general, blanket decision that
nothing which life has to offer is worth the price of worry. With this decision will
come poise, peace of mind, and calmness of thought which will bring happiness.
You may control your own mind, you have the power to feed it whatever thought
impulses you choose. With this privilege goes also the responsibility of using it
constructively. You are the master of your own earthly destiny
just as surely as you have the power to control your own thoughts. You may influence, direct, and eventually control your own environment,making your life what you need
it to be-or, you may neglect to exercise the privilege which is yours, to make your life
to order, thus casting yourself upon the broad sea of Circumstance where you
will be tossed like a chip on the waves of the ocean.
You now know the road that leads to riches. You have been given a road
map which, if followed, will keep you on that road. If you neglect to make the
start, or stop before you arrive, no one will be to blame, but YOU. This responsibility
is yours. No alibi will save you from accepting the responsibility if you now
