THOUGHTS ARE THINGS
The Man Who Thought His Way Into
Partnership With Thomas Edison
Thoughts are thingd and powerful things at that.
In this chapter we have several stories about people that received exactly what they wanted expressed in different ways.
Edward C Barnes made up his mind that he wasa going to go into business with the Great Thomas edison.
Although he had absdolutely nothing but deterimination and will power to obtain the goal he had set for himself.
The little girl that was determined to set to accomplish the goal set out ( my mommy's gota have that fifty cents) and she did not give up until she go0t what she came for.
That remindws me of a story I heard at an insurace seminar years ago. The speaker said that we should all have the persistence a child because they don't take no for an answer.
He put his son to bed and just a few minutes later his son says (daddy can I have a drink of water) the fater say no you can not have any more water. Now go to sleep within a few minute again (daddy can I have a drink of water) and again he says No go to sleep. few min. later he again ask (daddy can I have a drink of water) This time the dad replys If you don't go to sleep I going to come with the belt the boy replies(daddy when you bring the belt will you bring me some water)
When those negative thoughts enter our subconcious mind we need to do as Michael says (STOP IT)
YES I have learned so much about myself and what I need to do each and every day to be a Happy and Sucessful Entreprneur
husband, father, brother and person in my life.
It has almost become a habit that regardless of what I am doing I find myself saying my self talk. This has been such an inspiring and helpful master mind group for me.
