Think & Grow Rich Lessons

for many years I have lived in fear of a man who thought so much of and has taught so much about what kind of father that I am capable of being. over the years I have feared my own father's reaction to many areas whilst only wanting his love. now realizing that he is incapable of that love that was always seeking from my own father and it’s up to myself for that love.

it is holding me back and in bondage wanting a man to care and love more than he knows how to. We have the power to choose to let those tramp thoughts that our own family and friends may send our way in or we can choose to change those thoughts and impact our lives by choosing to fill our lives with thoughts of a positive nature and our own success. Napoleon says in this chapter “every human being has the ability to completely control his own mind, and with this control, obviously, every person may open his mind to the tramp thought impulses which are being released by other brains, or close the doors tightly and admit only thought impulses of his own choice” again this brings us back to the power of our own thoughts.

That thought truly does become things what we say about ourselves, our friends, our siblings, our family members inlaws and direct family can tend to come back to us.

for a major portion of my life has been run by fear that has held me in bondage not just of my own father a number of areas as well. it has held me back from own goals and dreams stopped me from being who I am as a person. over the years I have faced many fears from the fear of being beaten again by bullies, the fear of love, poverty, ill health and various others.

its time to say stop it to those fears, who cares what the family has to say, its my own choice rather than needing to listen all those who turn around saying the goal or dream is too much. had I chosen to listen to those fears then it wouldn’t have resulted in getting married, being a father in 2017. fears as Michael Dlouhy says is often a way of getting people back into their box that they have been placed into by someone else.

without learning to overcome those fears I would have stayed in Sydney and failed to have met my best friend, helping her out after getting on a train and traveling 6 hours to meet her, also ending up being her birthday weekend and choosing to be a present for her. although own first time close with a woman it has taken many years growing from there to become who I am now, it’s taken conquering many fears like asking Jenny to be me wife. there are many years to overcome and work on daily, it’s learning to say stop it to those fears.

I am going to make 2017 my year and it’s none of my own business what the naysayers have to say about what I am doing. I am looking for those who support what I am working to achieve, like the team here at mentoring for free,

thank you to my amazing powerful and wonderful friends, mentors and family Michael and Linda Dlouhy for Your ongoing love support and encouragement, to my wonderful friend and a father figure of own life and brilliant mentor Ken Klemm thank You aswell for Your ongoing love support and encouragement, thanks to my ever amazing wife Jenny for Your own support. Lastly thanks to the mentoring for free family for their help over the years.

Big hugs,

Ben Drake
