55 Plain, unemotional words do not influence the subconscious mind. You will get
56 no appreciable results until you learn to reach your subconscious mind with
57 thoughts, or spoken words which have been well emotionalized with BELIEF.

80 principle of CONCENTRATION.
81 Let us here offer suggestions for the effective use of concentration. When you
82 begin to carry out the first of the six steps, which instructs you to "fix in your
83 own mind the EXACT amount of money you desire," hold your thoughts on
84 that amount of money by CONCENTRATION, or fixation of attention, with
