Think and Grow Rich – Chapter 6

Imagination.

 

“Ideas are intangible forces, but they have more power than the physical brains that give birth to them. They have the power to live on, after the brain that creates them has returned to dust. For example, take the power of Christianity. That began with a simple idea, born in the brain of Christ. Its chief tenet was, “do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” Christ has gone back to the source from whence He came, but His IDEA goes marching on.

 

Someday, it may grow up, and come into its own, then it will have fulfilled Christ’s deepest DESIRE. The IDEA has been developing only two thousand years. Give it time!”

 

In this review of Chapter 6, I’m going to focus on time.  How much time is enough to wait, hear hunches, fail forward and plan our plans to reach our desired goal?   I am directing my personal thoughts to success in Network Marketing for our audience at Mentoring for Free. 

 

For Asa Candler, He built the Coca-Cola Company from 1891, having purchased it for $2300 and developed it, mostly in the south, selling it in 1919 for $25,000,000, a period of 28 years.

 

For Dr. Frank W. Gunsaulus:   "The necessary million dollars came as a result of an idea. Back of the idea was a DESIRE which young Gunsaulus had been nursing in his mind for almost two years.

Observe this important fact... HE GOT THE MONEY WITHIN THIRTY-SIX HOURS AFTER HE REACHED A DEFINITE DECISION IN HIS OWN MIND TO GET IT, AND DECIDED UPON A DEFINITE PLAN FOR GETTING IT!”  {Time equals 2 years and 36 hours.)

 

For the book publisher:  It was instantaneous!  He increased his book sales from a dud on the shelf to millions of sales by leaving the book intact and only changing the cover.

 

For each of these, “That, as simple as it may seem, was an IDEA! It was IMAGINATION.”

 

So whether it takes a moment or 2000 years to get our desires to fruition, how long are we willing to work toward our successful Network Marketing businesses?

 

For me:  It has been 54 years of seeing the vision of the industry, including the time and education from joining 10-15 companies with moderate success, but not the desire anticipated.  Now with the additional training and expertise of Linda & Michael Dlouhy, the goal is in sight.  That, along with overcoming personal weaknesses through continuous study in Think & Grow Rich and discussion with this incredible Mastermind group, I’m ready to set the time, date and amount I plan to receive.

 

Thanks to Linda and Michael for grooming us for the success we desire and the skills we need.  Also thanks to all of you who participate in this program at any level.
