Chapter 1, Thoughts Are Things.

The First Step To Owning Your Life, Is To Own Your Mind.

If you think you CAN do it, you will do what it takes to make it happen. If you believe you are worthy
of something you will do it with confidence and with no guilt.  

Most people believe “Think and Grow Rich” is a book about money. Perhaps they ponder, “Wow!

If I read this, then I’ll learn how to make piles of money magically appear on my coffee table - just
by thinking it! ”In his “Master Key to Success” series, Napoleon Hill ranked Financial Wealth way
down at number 8 of the 10 things he called “Riches”.
 So, why does this book seem
preoccupied with the attainment of money?

Napoleon Hill writes of a moneymaking SECRET which appears in every chapter of this book.
 
Hill says the SECRET “will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, IF YOU ARE READY
FOR IT! The SECRET cannot be had without a price, although the price is far less than its value.
It cannot be had at any price by those who are not intentionally searching for it. It cannot be given
away, it cannot be purchased for money, for the reason that it comes in two parts.

But MOST people will let well meaning Family members, Friends, News Media, or a Religious
Leader program their Mind when Listening to them.

Every person is capable of Original Thought when they STOP listening to all the Nay Sayers.

If you do NOT think you are capable and worthy, you will NOT do what it takes to succeed. You
will quit at the first sign of trouble or failure.  

This story will give You a glimpse into the power of Your thoughts',....... Once You put it out there .

Over 3 years ago I noticed a neighbors lawn had become overgrown, one day as I was driving past
their driveway the husband David was locking the gate as he was leaving to visit his wife Ruby in the
hospital with congestive heart failure. 

I said if he left the gate open I would mow and rake their 1 acre Property and stack the grass for him
to burn, his response was why would You do this and his second was how much are You going to 
charge me.?  My answer was, because I could mow it and I would NOT charge them anything.........

This started me mowing their lawn every week, Linda started taking them food, paper towels, toilet
paper, dog food, bird food, when Linda shopped for our groceries she would always take the BoGo's,
and Took them a Turkey every Thanksgiving and Christmas.

About a year ago Ruby was telling me how financially strapped they were, she got about $1,200.00
per month and her husband David got about $300.00 from his Canada pension, after paying Power,
phone, water left nothing to save for a rainy day.

My response to her was, Linda and I could buy their property, let them live there till their passing giving
them the money they needed for their shortfall. She said this was an amazing offer, her health worsened
so on 02-05-2022 Ruby passed away leaving David with his $300.00 monthly pension to live on.

Since Ruby's passing I take him food and drink every day,  we  have been paying the power, phone
water and food bills.  We will close on their property this week. It all started talking to Ruby and  putting
it out there, Ruby always told Linda we were their guardian angels.
