Thoughts are Things – Think and Grow Rich – Personal Lesson




Hill’s opening statement is really powerful, he states ‘TRULY, “thoughts are things,” and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a BURNING DESIRE for their translation into riches, or other material objects.

About a year and a half ago I had thoughts of finding my Family in England who I had lost contact with some 25 years ago. My thoughts revolved around what were their present circumstances and would they allow me back into their lives. I made half hearted attempts at finding them but it was during a Salvation Army meeting during Christmas 2011 that I finally to action. I wrote down that I would spend time and money to find them.

I tried a number of agencies with little success but my desire had now become with determination, persistence and faith that I would find them. I finally found a source of information which allowed me to search the electoral rolls of England. I began with the latest and worked backwards. No record of my Daughter until 2004. So what happened in 2004, her husband was still there and also my Grandson?  I obtained a phone number and rang it, the call was answered by a lady definitely not my Daughter. I asked for her and the phone was handed to the person who I knew as my Son-in-Law.

He explained the disappearance of my Daughter from the Electoral Roll due to the fact that they had divorced in 2004. He gave me contact details for my Daughter and this allowed me to make contact and my passionate desire became a reality.
This has lead to exchanges via email, Skype and telephone until about six weeks ago I flew to England for a reunion with my Daughter. At that time I knew that my Son lived some distance away but whether there would be a reunion with him and his family was not certain, although it was my passionate desire.

My Son did for fill this other passionate desire and the whole family was once more united. I believe that this illustrates the whole process from thought, through passionate desire to the final materialization of the thought.

Thank you to everyone in this group for it is your encouragement that made this possible.

My Personal Development Journey

Some three years ago I was struggling with my personal life as well as my business life. Things were not going well and I knew something had to change.

I was introduced to a small book “Success in Ten Steps” written by Michael Dlouhy which examined the business side of my problem and convinced me that the MLM Company with which I am associated is the right one for me and is a well established and reputable company which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and has been for a number of years.

Dealing with my Personal Life was another matter and for this I joined “Mentoring for Free”, here my thinking patterns have changed and now I have change from a mind set of “its not what you think to Its how you think”. It has taught me that anything the brain can think about can be achieved by following the Laws of Nature and simple 13 well defined steps.

These steps are clearly explained in a book written by Napoleon Hill after a 25 year study of more than 500 Entrepreneurs in the United Sates under the guidance of Andrew Carnegie. No one step can be ignored and each step must be carefully followed and the procedure adhered too. The Book is “Think and Grow Rich”

I am now completing my fourth reading of “Think and Grow Rich”, have learnt many things about myself image, relationships with other people and the characteristics of my personality via the Personality Colours.

As my journey continues and I continue to read the book again I will post my Lesson Plans, also I will select additional Lesson Plans from members of the group on the Weekly Chapter and post them. It is hoped that the reading of the Posts will encourage those who are struggling, in their lives or businesses, to take action and change their lives. There is a quote from the great Jim Rohn, “To achieve more you must be come more”.
