Chapter 1

"Thoughts Are Things"



TRULY, “thoughts are things,” and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a BURNING DESIRE for their translation into riches, or other material objects.​


If you have a Burning Desire to do something, you are extremely interested in it or want to do it very much. It is a urgency in your inner being and you will not stop until you reach your destination. 

Edward C. Barnes Had a burning Desire to be a partner with Edison and didn't give up until he achieved his goal. It was a thought that manifested into a burning desire. He was so determined to find a way to carry out his desire that he finally decided to travel by “blind baggage,” rather than be defeated. (To the uninitiated, this means that he went to East Orange on a freight train). Barnes was sure of his self

R.U. Darby Had Lost his burning desire and quit 3 feet from gold while the "Junk man"  The “Junk” man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine, because he knew enough to seek expert counsel before giving up.

It's Important to do research to understand your plans for riches.

Then there is the Young Little colored girl who was determined to get the fifty-cent for her momma. who was not afraid to speak up because she had a burning desire to get the fifty cent no matter what. 

So These three stood out to me. 

As we look into our own minds we to can generate Riches from the thought process along with our burning desire.


When Henley wrote the prophetic lines, “I am the Master of my Fate, I am the Captain of my Soul,” he should have informed us that we are the Masters of our Fate, the Captains of our Souls, because we have the power to control our thoughts. He should have told us that the ether in which this little earth floats, in which we move and have our being, is a form of energy moving at an inconceivably high rate of vibration, and that the ether is filled with a form of universal power which ADAPTS itself to the nature of the thoughts we hold in our minds; and INFLUENCES us, in natural ways, to transmute our thoughts into their physical equivalent.

This is truly quote and mission  to live by.
