CHAPTER ONE - THOUGHTS ARE THINGS
'"It was what he THOUGHT that counted".
If the significance of this statement could be conveyed to the person who reads it, there would be no need for the remainder of this book.
For me, personally, for this chapter, that says it all.
This is what I must have to get where I am going. Can you picture the expression on the face of Barnes
that conveyed SO much to Mr. Edison that nothing else mattered? Not what he said, certainly not how
he was dressed, not his age, not his skin color, nothing else. Only the expression on his face! Only what
he THOUGHT! Granted, some credit must go to Mr. Edison for being able to correctly '"read" that
expression. Perhaps not just anyone would have been paying enough attention to, or actually been
looking him in the eye while talking, to see this, but we ARE talking about the great Thomas Alva Edison!
I will never stop three feet from MY gold and I understand the 50-cent lesson and one day I will be able to
convey the impression that I will get what I am after, with no words.
Thank you Steve for starting us on this journey. Thank you Michael and Linda for Mentoring For Free and thank you all for your love and support.
