THE WORKSHOP OF THE MIND
The Fifth Step toward Riches
Our brain is both a broadcasting and receiving station for the vibration of thought.
MAN'S ONLY LIMIATION, within reason, LIES IN HIS DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF
HIS IMAGINATION. Hill tells us that there are two forms of Imagination (a) SYNTHETIC
IMAGINATION and (b) CREATIVE IMAGINATION.
WHAT I WOULD DO IF I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS
While Dr. Frank W. Gunsaulus was going through college, he observed many defects
in our educational system, defects which he believed he could correct if he were the head
of a colllege. His deepest desire was to become the directing head of an educational
institution in which young men and women would be taught to "learn by doing."
He knew that to establish such a school, he would need One Million Dollars -- He thought
about the matter for a period of two years, but was no closer to seeing his dream become
a reality -- All the while this dream was becoming a BURNING DESIRE -- or a DEFINITENESS
OF PURPOSE -- He put a time line on getting the money -- He advertised the title of his
upcoming sermon and prayed that it would be heard by the right person -- During the sermon he
gave a word picture of exactly what he wanted to accomplish. At the end of the sermon Phillip D
Armour came forward saying "Reverend, I liked your sermon, I believe you can do everything
you said you would, if you had a million dollars. To prove that I believe in you and your sermon,
if you will come to my office tomorrow morning, I will give you the million dollars.
With this money, he founded the Armour Institute of Technology.
Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform for all of us to learn and grow into
the people that we were meant to be.
Love to all,
