Thoughts Are Things!
From the book,
Think And Grow Rich!
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 object. (Napoleon Hill)
For a long time my thoughts were focused on going to and from work,
That’s where my focus was at. My focus was not on me, becoming
The best me I can. My focus was not on, where do you want to
Be in 5 years, what type of person do you want to become?
This chapter has 3 stories about people who were focused on
What they wanted. Mr Darby got the gold fever he lived in
Maryland, the gold was in Colorado, over a thousand miles
Away. He went to Colorado and staked a claim and went to work,
After about 2 weeks he was rewarded by the discovery of the
Shining ore. The next part of his plan, he went back home,
He had to raise money to by machinery and have it shipped.
Him and at least one other person went back with him.
After one good run the mine would not produce anymore ore.
After running the machines a while and nothing happened,
They most likely got tired and hungry and home sick and
Made the decision to pack up and go home. They worked out
A good deal with a local junk man to take over the mind and
Machinery. The Junk man’s thoughts might have gone something
Like this, just to make sure I am going to get a mining engineer
To look at the mine and see what he says. It turned out that
Darby was 3 feet from gold, and the Junk man became rich a few
Times over. Some how Mr Darby found out about it, and turned
It into a self talk, when he started selling life insurance, I will never
Stop 3 feet from gold ever again, over and over and over again.
He became a million air a few times over, he paid everybody back
He borrowed money from.
If we are able to focus our thoughts on what we want, we are
Willing to learn, educate our self, willing to listen, some of us
Need to bump up our Enthusiasm, there are times when we have
To tell the naysayers that’s your reality not mine, willing to fail
Forward like Mr Darby, and above all don’t quit, we can be just as
Successful as Mr Darby.
This though just came to me, It’s more fun to fail forward, than it
Is to stand still.
