I listened and read this lesson on Imagination. This lesson put some many things into perspective on how I need to shift gears a bit.
It's amazing when one thinks they have mastered some of the principles in the various chapters, when it is reread one realizes I have to revisit the beginning lessons.
For me this is a great accomplishment because I am being honest with my self. Growth only happens when one is in awareness of correcting oneself and standing in truth.
This lesson on Dr. Gunsaulus represented some aspects of myself.
For instance I will go a little further. I would create these magnificent ideas and just play with them and eventually dissipated into nothingness.
While reading so many different authors and listening many audios my ideas begins to be just ideas, lacking the big word ACTION.
I am sharing these few sentences from THINK AND GROW RICH on Imagination, for me this is the game changer in creating my success.
" Dr. Gunsaulus recognized, as do all who succeed in life, that DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE is the starting point from which one must begin. He recognized, too, that definiteness of purpose takes on animation, life, and power when backed by a BURNING DESIRE to translate that purpose into its material equivalent.
He knew all these great truths, yet he did not know where, or how to lay his hands on a million dollars. The natural procedure would have been to give up and quit, by saying, “Ah well, my idea is a good one, but I cannot do anything with it, because I never can procure the necessary million dollars.” That is exactly what the majority of people would have said, but it is not what Dr. Gunsaulus said. What he said, and what he did are so important that I now introduce him, and let him speak for himself.
“One Saturday afternoon I sat in my room thinking of ways and means of raising the money to carry out my plans. For nearly two years, I had been thinking, but I had done nothing but think! “The time had come for ACTION!
“I made up my mind, then and there, that I would get the necessary million dollars within a week. How? I was not concerned about that. The main thing of importance was the decision to get the money within a specified time, and I want to tell you that the moment I reached a definite decision to get the money within a specified time, a strange feeling of assurance came over me, such as I had never before experienced. Something inside me seemed to say, ‘Why didn’t you reach that decision a long time ago? The money was waiting for you all the time!’"
Thank you to all the members of this mastermind group especially Micheal and my personal coach Bob you all are the best.
