Chapter 1

"Thoughts Are Things"



TRULY, “thoughts are things,” and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a BURNING DESIRE for their translation into riches, or other material objects.‚Äč


If you have a Burning Desire to do something, you are extremely interested in it or want to do it very much. It is a urgency in your inner being and you will not stop until you reach your destination. 

Edward C. Barnes Had a burning Desire to be a partner with Edison and didn't give up until he achieved his goal. It was a thought that manifested into a burning desire. He was so determined to find a way to carry out his desire that he finally decided to travel by “blind baggage,” rather than be defeated. (To the uninitiated, this means that he went to East Orange on a freight train). Barnes was sure of his self

R.U. Darby Had Lost his burning desire and quit 3 feet from gold while the "Junk man"  The “Junk” man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine, because he knew enough to seek expert counsel before giving up.

It's Important to do research to understand your plans for riches.

Then there is the Young Little colored girl who was determined to get the fifty-cent for her momma. who was not afraid to speak up because she had a burning desire to get the fifty cent no matter what. 

So These three stood out to me. 

As we look into our own minds we to can generate Riches from the thought process along with our burning desire.


When Henley wrote the prophetic lines, “I am the Master of my Fate, I am the Captain of my Soul,” he should have informed us that we are the Masters of our Fate, the Captains of our Souls, because we have the power to control our thoughts. He should have told us that the ether in which this little earth floats, in which we move and have our being, is a form of energy moving at an inconceivably high rate of vibration, and that the ether is filled with a form of universal power which ADAPTS itself to the nature of the thoughts we hold in our minds; and INFLUENCES us, in natural ways, to transmute our thoughts into their physical equivalent.

This is truly quote and mission  to live by. 


As we start this lesson and figure out our burning desire (My Why)  we have to know what set presidence in our life. So many people live in the dome and gloom of poverty they cannot see the light of true riches. Many are satisfied with the monthly struggles of Life and Cannot see past the first of the month. well as for me I will learn from each error in life and grow and look for guidance in the way I should go. I intend to be coachable and live by a detailed schedule with adjustment because problems do come about. Live by a system that will grow my income.

celebrate each victory to feed the Dopamine in my brain to celebrate my achievements to keep me motivated toward my larger goal. 

Use my self talk to encourage myself to keep progressing. 

My main goal is to stay away from the DEBBIE DOWNERS of life because I don't need the stinking Thinking around me.

I know the road ahead of me will take Hard work,Studying, lots of phone calls,messaging, canvassing, follow-ups and emails, but my burning desire will keep me motivated.

I learned so much here at mentoring for free and wish those around me will see what I see. But in time the results will show up and Show out.

because I am willing to live like I Never have, so I can live Like I Never had.

I living with 2020 Vision even with set backs because I know set backs are part of bigger come backs.

Thank you for helping me learn how to think not what to think. because Thoughts are Things you bring into your life for the good or the bad.

i choose the good and will deal with the bad when it come and wont let it over take me in depression.
