Lesson 8 : The power of praxis


At times, we all operate with two belief systems relative to one subject—the belief we choose with our conscious mind and the one that exists in our subconscious mind. When that happens, we get confused, we get stuck.

Because of our programming, it can be extremely difficult to change the beliefs that exist in our subconscious mind. It explains why most people take countless inherited and often ridiculous beliefs to the grave with them after permitting these beliefs to control them throughout their lives. We have an opportunity to change this.

Praxis is the integration of belief with behavior. This lesson on Praxis is vital because you will never accomplish anything until you believe you can. You’ll learn how to align beliefs that are in harmony with the laws of the universe, with your behavior so that you get the results you want.

Key Points from lesson Eight


  • Napoleon Hill writes, “no one’s ready for a thing, until they believe that they can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief and not mere hope or wish.”
  • Our belief system is based upon our evaluation of something and frequently if we reevaluate situations, our belief about those situations will change.
  • You will never go beyond where you BELIEVE you can go.
  • Praxis is the integration of belief with behavior.
  • We have belief on two levels. Belief in our educated mind, based on logic, based on what we see and on the information that we gather. Then we have belief on a very deep level, on a subconscious level; belief that controls our behavior and is part of the paradigm.
  • With a team, it is essential that each member believes, on an emotional level, that which they verbalize. They’ve got to practice the word praxis, begin to integrate some of their beliefs with their behavior.
  • On a conscious level and on a logical level, we can ‘think’ it’s true and we can ‘say’, “yeah, I can do that”. However, one must BELIEVE at a deep level, from deep in the psyche that it is true. If we do not, then we must change that part of the paradigm.
  • The truth is you can do anything, but you’ve got to believe it; without BELIEF, it is not going to happen.
  • The thoughts that we internalize set up the vibration, vibration causes the action, action causes the reaction. It’s the action/reaction that creates the result BELIEF—you’ve got to believe it can be.


We use repetition to learn and impress upon the subconscious mind.

We use reflection also to learn and to help make connections between what we are taught in theory and what we need to do in practice.
