Throughout this chapter we are reminded about controlling our own minds and thoughts. Napoleon says during this chapter.
 
“all individuals can open their minds to the “tramp” thought impulses which derive from the brains of others, or else can close the doors tightly and admit only thought impulses of their own choice.”
 
“individuals are handicapped not solely by their inherent nature to be slow at reaching decisions, but by the influence of the indecision of others around them who have created a state of mass indecision.”
 
“Individuals who accumulate great riches always protect themselves against this evil! The poverty stricken never do! Those who succeed in any calling must prepare their minds to resist the evil.”
 
“Deliberately seek the company of people who influence you to THINK AND ACT FOR YOURSELF.”  The team at mentoring for free helps hear, i am needing to locate more friends who encourage me to think and act for myself.
 
“You have ABSOLUTE CONTROL over but one thing, and that is your thoughts.”
 
“If you fail to control your own mind, you may be sure you will control nothing else.”
 
“FORD HAD A MIND AND CONTROLLED IT, WHILE MOST OF THE OTHERS HAD MINDS WHICH THEY DID NOT TRY TO CONTROL.”
 
For many Ben You have let the tramp thoughts from those around You run Your life. Listening to influences which were unable to encourage Your own goal or dream. You found mentoring for free and started to find those who were happy to encourage You in Your own goals and dreams even when they may of been different in a way.
 
You want to build Your model railway and it’s time to build that by getting around those who inspire and encourage it’s building, rather than listening to those who attempt to get you back under control by using words like do You know how big that will be. It’s Your dream, if that’s what You want Ben go out and do just that.
For years you’ve Sat back and stopped owing to those same comments. You’ve stopped in Your tracks as You’ve listened to fears which have been pushed on You. Ben You control Your own mind, Your own thoughts and Your life.
 
A vision You see is Your family Jenny, Jamie and daughters all in Your dream car on the gold coast of Queensland. The family is all healthy and fit. Now that vision has stuck in Your own mind and has been shared with very few only the positive influences know like mentoring for free as have had to learn just who is in support of that dream.
 
Ben what is the use of talking with Your father about being an entrepreneur when he’s worked for the same company for many Years now. What’s the use of about health with someone who never has changed or gone to the gym. When You started your health improvement it was owing to wanting to avoid the issues you’d seen occur in Your family.
 
Fear has run Your life from high school to adult You were scared of many areas. Now you are saying no more.
