your mind subconsciously you Mould be ashamed of your mind,
jit actually takes as long as two years sometimes to get you to

It’s like teaching a baby to taf ". *
Every known trick of psychology is brought to bear on you.
.Advertisers have even been known to print their advertisement
upside down, hoping, perhaps, if you had to stand on your

And what you so often reuj.se to receive with your will the
jeamera of your eye records in s|ite of you. Ho that of what
jyou buy you buy through advert Ling whether you know it or not.
And yet, in the face of all this, the advertising method of
jselling things is twenty 'times.'cheaper than any other method

telling you his story every day whether you know it or not.
