Think and Grow Rich – Chapter 6                                      October 20, 2021



“You are now engaged in the task of trying to profit by Nature’s method. You are (sincerely and earnestly, we hope), trying to adapt yourself to Nature’s laws, by endeavoring to convert DESIRE into its physical or monetary equivalent.” NH


So here I am, looking at the stair steps of my Networking Marketing comp plan.  My desire is to be in one of the upper positions.  How much money do I need to meet my desires?  I can estimate the costs of living a few years down the road and choose a number as a goal.  Then begins the road to copy nature’s methods with my first seed, the first step in my company’s comp plan and watch it multiply, from my efforts and those of people who join me.


Then Hill says, “Your imaginative faculty may have become weak through inaction. It can be revived and made alert through USE. This faculty does not die, though it may become quiescent through lack of use. Center your attention, for the time being, on the development of the synthetic imagination, because this is the faculty, which you will use more often in the process of converting desire into money.” NH


Weak for sure.  Time to give my imagination a new workout regime.  I was trooping along pretty well with LinkedIn and saw a greener pasture in social media and stopped LinkedIn and started Facebook.  That is totally ok, but I need to continue with LinkedIn as well because it was working.  Looking at this chapter in a new way has made me want to split my time and maybe not evenly, perhaps 3/4 LinkedIn to ¼ Facebook.  Both of these are definitely synthetic imagination and I can slip in creative imagination as I become more comfortable with them.


“Carry out the instructions best suited to your needs, reduce your plan to writing, if you have not already done so. The moment you complete this, you will have DEFINITELY given concrete form to the intangible DESIRE.”NH 


Next I MUST write out my plan.  That would include the list of how I want my life to be AND the daily task list.  At first, I’d be using my synthetic imagination and following what Michael & LInda and other successful network marketers are doing.  As I test various approaches, I will know what ways I prefer to interact with my contacts.  Seeing my daily task plan in writing will also allow me to sit at the computer in the morning and GET STARTED to really do something and to see the results.  Reading the list of how I want my life to be morning and evening will strengthen my resolve to go after it and step into that life.


Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for patiently watching us wander and continue to help us feel that we are still on the path.  Thanks for the impute from all of you who write lessons, speak up or just listen on the calls.  Mentoring for Free is a training and a support group!
