Chapter 1 The Man Who “Thought” His Way
Into Partnership with Thomas A. Edison

“A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.”
Mahatma Gandhi

With just one thought on his mind when Edwin Barnes climbed into a
boxcar for the long trip to East Orange, New Jersey. He had never
met the man on which his thought was focused, nor did he know the
reaction he would receive.

Yet with a determination is driven by a laser focus, a burning desire
he stood before Mr. Thomas Edison stating and declaring his dream,
“I have come to go into business with you.”

“Just what young Barnes said to Mr. Edison on that occasion was far
less important than that which he thought. Edison, himself, said so!
It could not have been the young man’s appearance which got him his
start in the Edison office, for that was definitely against him. It
was what he thought that counted.” Napoleon Hill

“Every thought we think is creating our future.” Louise Hay

Just how much are my thoughts worth?  My future depends upon the value
I put on them. Just how big is my desire to be a network marketer? Have
I allowed the naysayer to stop me 3 feet short of my goal? Will the No’s
of the past deny me of the choices I have made for my life?

Edwin Barnes's thoughts resulting in making him millions of dollars. R. U.
Darby's conviction not to ever miss his fortune by 3 feet again moved his
thoughts and determination to turn a career in insurance into his personal
gold mine.

The scripture tells us we are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses. men of
faith who followed a path of trust and set an example for us to follow. My
thoughts go to men such as Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses. David, Peter,
Paul, and many others whose thoughts focus on the end results. I also look
to the witnesses Infinite Intelligence places before me even today; Henry
Ford, Thomas Edison, Steve Job, Elon Musk, Donald Trump, and many
more ho take their thoughts fanned into a burning desire changed the world.

It now time for me to fan my thoughts in building a successful network
marketing for myself, my family and be an example for others to follow

Thank you, Linda and Michael Dlouhy fanning your thoughts into the creation
‚Äčof this mastermind enabling us to live out the thoughts within each of us.

My love to all of you who are my family at Mentoring for Free.
