THOUGHTS ARE THINGS AND POWERFUL THINGS AT THAT.

 

…his was no ordinary 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.

 

…there was something in the expression of his face which conveyed the impression

that he was determined to get what he had come after.

 

…when a man really DESIRES a thing so deeply that he is willing to stake his

entire future on a single turn of the wheel in order to get it, he is sure to win.

 

It was what he THOUGHT that counted.

 

…something important was happening in Barnes’ mind. He was constantly

intensifying his DESIRE…

 

Psychologists have correctly said that “when one is truly ready for a thing, it

puts in its appearance.”

Barnes was ready for a business association with Edison, moreover, he was

DETERMINED TO REMAIN READY UNTIL HE GOT THAT WHICH HE WAS SEEKING.

 

What a different story men would have to tell if only they would adopt a DEFINITE

PURPOSE, and stand by that purpose until it had time to become an all-consuming obsession!

 

…he did have initiative, faith, and the will to win.

 

As my good friend, THE MAYOR, Marty Roe continues to point “THE GREATEST

FORCES ARE INTANGIBLE”. 

 

Here we are again, at the first chapter.  Chapters 2 – 14 will lay out the 13 principles

needed to literally “Think and Grow Rich.”  This chapter lays the groundwork.  We

have to “get our mind right”.  We must have a persistent, consistent, determined

BURNING DESIRE.  We must “put on our blinders”, “keep our eye on the prize”,

“burn our bridges”, etc.  What we want may have started as a wish but if we begin

with these thoughts that have been mentioned and use them to create that BURNING

DESIRE, then we can take apply the 13 principles properly and “there is no stopping us”.
