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.
