CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION

THE MAN WHO "THOUGHT" HIS WAY INTO PARTNERSHIP WITH THOMAS A. EDISON

Hill is a genius. He gives us an example to follow in the very beginning,
Chapter 1. He tells us in the very first paragraph, "Thoughts are Things."

We see here in this first chapter Barnes, dressed as a tramp, so determined to
become a partner with Edison, he immediately achieved his first goal of working
towards being in business with Edison. Edison, being a good judge of men, saw
something in Barnes eyes that told him he should hire Barnes.

It took Barnes 5 years to get his break that led him to being in partnership
with Edison. He became a millionaire.

So what do WE do? We download an ebook. We may read it and we may not. Most
people have no serious objective in mind, other than to make money. And that is
not a good enough reason. It is at most just a wish.

Many people do very little in Mentoring For Free. When it comes to writing a
Think and Grow Rich Lesson consistently, week after week, that is way too much.
But they do want that Pro System. They want to get leads for their company. So
they get the Pro System. They may get on some calls, but they are not COACHABLE.
They advertise their ebook, similar to how they did their advertising before
MFF. In 2 or 3 months they have no ebook downloads. They say, this doesn't work
and away they go, never to return. MFF doesn't work, in their minds.

Quite a difference between the attitude of Barnes and most people who download
Michael's ebook, wouldn't you say? It's pretty obvious why the quitters fail.
The DESIRE was not there. It was just a wish. Fortunately, for those who are
COACHABLE, goals can be attained. Successes can be achieved.

I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their following through to make
Mentoring For Free the world class life training it is today and what it will be
10 years from now. I'm so grateful for being able to learn how to build
relationships with other and to be able to put into practice the techniques
taught here in Mentoring For Free. Thank you, thank you and thank you, Linda and
Michael.

I am grateful for the kind of group each of our 9 weekly calls are; a master
mind group, as Hill found in each of the 500 richest men in the world when
writing this book. They all belonged to a master mind group. Thank you, thank
you and thank you to each member of these groups.

PS: I am also grateful to each person who has downloaded my ebook and has chosen
to be COACHABLE. They are developing their DESIRE and are working hard to become
successful. I appreciate each one of them. Thank you, thank you and thank you to
each one of you.
