Chapter 2 - Burning All The Bridges.

May He grant you your heart’s desire And fulfill all your plans. Psalm 20:4 (AMP)

Pursue [this] love [with eagerness, make it your goal], yet earnestly desire and cultivate the spiritual gifts [to be used by believers for the benefit of the church], but especially that you may prophesy [to foretell the future, to speak a new message from God to the people]. 1Corinthians 14:1 (AMP)

“One must realize that all who have accumulated great fortunes, first did a certain amount of dreaming, hoping, wishing, DESIRING, and PLANNING before they acquired money. You may as well know, right here, that you can never have riches in great quantities UNLESS you can work yourself into a white heat of DESIRE for money, and actually BELIEVE you will possess it. You may as well know, also that every great leader, from the dawn of civilization down to the present, was a dreamer. Christianity is the greatest potential power in the world today, because its founder was an intense dreamer who had the vision and the imagination to see realities in their mental and spiritual form before they had been transmuted into physical form. If you do not see great riches in your imagination, you will never see them in your bank balance. Never, in the history of America has there been so great an opportunity for practical dreamers as now exists.” Napoleon Hill

In this chapter, Mr. Hill discusses that “burning all the bridges” and having a singleness of focus for your desires are the true power to achieve great wealth. Our businesses are the main reason we have chosen to be part of this Mastermind group. Our personal growth in spirit and mindset are the keys to unlocking our desired success.

Writing out and daily reading of my burning desire statement and affirmations have created an influx of interest and committed people wanting what I have to offer. I heard Michael when he said we have to be definite about what we want.  I am making more statements in my prayers before my presentations that the guests will see the value of what I’m offering and open their accounts. Now I have to add that they will have the available money to open their accounts NOW!

My understanding is that as my soul prospers with patience, and keeping my mind focused on the positive outcomes hoped for, time will manifest all the desires of my heart. The goal of building wealth for my police wellness compound is my singleness of focus. What comes with it will be legacy building for my family as well.  My friends here are helping me burn the bridges of my stinking thinking, and I am truly grateful.  Thank you, Linda and Michael Dlouhy, and to my new mastermind friends for helping me grow into the leader God has intended for me to be.
