Think & Grow Rich Lessons

Just this past weekend, I struggled within myself about the Mentoring For Free program. I asked myself am I ready for the next step in the mentoring system.
Part of me was saying yes, I am ready. The other part of me was saying no, I'm not ready. I realized that this is a very huge step in developing myself into the
person I want to be.

It became very clear to me today that all the previous chapters leading up to chapter 10, are really talking about the same thing. Just a deeper look into the
various things necessary to accumulate great sums of money. Mr. Hill consistently talks about FAITH, CONSISTENCY, PERSISTENCE, DESIRE, and THE
MASTERMIND. And the ability to think in a positive way.

My personel war with myself this weekend is evidence that something (mind) inside of me is changing. Change almost always comes with a struggle. This is
so true when you look at history, or those who have amassed great fortunes, or wealth, or success. That change can come from internal, or external sources.

The key is to remain focused, seek the advice of the Mastermind group (thanks Tony, Michael and Linda) and the others, then get back on the chosen path to
success. It is amazing how when two or more minds can touch and agree, and focus on a common goal, what can be accomplished with that POWER. One
very good example is the story of Ghandhi. The author explains that Ghandhi came by POWER through inducing over two hundred million people to coordinate,
with mind and body, in a spirit of HARMONY, for a definite purpose.

This is how I view Michael and Linda's vision for the Mentoring For Free Program. I am so glad they did, because I would have been in the same unsuccessful condition, that I been in for years.

   As I close, I liked the story about the great unseen stream of power, which may be compared to a river; except that one side flows in one direction, carrying all
who get into that side of the stream, onward and upward to WEALTH - and the other side flows in the opposite direction, carrying all who are unfortunate enough
to get into it, downward to misery and POVERTY.

I can only imagine me, swimming constantly upstream, putting myself ALL IN to rise to the TOP. The others being swept away by the waves and the currents of life,
never exerting the efforts it takes to get to the other side. Many just go with the flow, never achieving anything GREAT. Never give up your dreams. Remember, if
you do what is easy, your life would be hard. If you do what is hard, your life would be easy.

Thanks to my Mentor Tony, Michael and Linda, and the whole Mastermind Team.
