                                                Thoughts are Things 


What makes a thought so powerful? Is it the thought itself or is it the determination that brings the emotion to that thought ? This is what came to mind when I read this chapter.

As I looked back over my life when i was victrious in my pursuits it always came down to how bad I wanted the object I strived for. There is a glaring contrast between the two stories told in this chapter, the first of a man who knew exactly what he wanted and was determined to have no matter what the cost or how long it would take to attain. The second example is how most men approach adversity, they quit three feet from the GOLD. 

These two examples brings to mind the old story of bacon and eggs, the chicken was invloved the pig was COMMITED! 

It always amazes me when I read this chapter how setting the process for success is so easy, don't get me wrong, the joruney has it obsticles we must all overcome, however setting the course is as simple understanding HOW TO THINK, where have you heard that before? 

This brings me to believe that thoughts backed by emotion along with a determintion that will not quit until the DESIRE is achieved is the key to all dreams and ambitions becoming reality.
