“How does one create opportunity? How do you advance you career, your dreams, you income? How do you harness your personal power to create what you want? How do you lead a happy, fulfilling life? These are important considerations.
What did Edison see in Barnes that made him give Barnes an opportunity? Edison said it was the look on his face, that let him know Barnes was absolutely committed. Though he dressed like a tramp his thoughts were those of a king.
Those thoughts were his strength, his attitude. Those powerful thoughts were reflected in his countenance and demeanor. He exuded something and Edison could tell. He had a confidence, an air about him, a look that told Edison this man meant business.
Hill states, ‘It is a remarkable illustration of the power of a DEFINITE DESIRE. Barnes won his goal because he wanted to be a business associate of Mr. Edison MORE than he wanted anything else. He created a plan by which to attain that purpose.
You Become What You Think About All Day Long
‘But he BURNED ALL BRIDGES BEHIND HIM. He stood by his DESIRE until it became the dominating obsession of his life— and, finally, a fact.’ Emerson said, ‘we become what we think about all day long’. His desire became the dominating obsession of his life!
Barnes dwelt on his chief aim. He repeatedly saw it in his mind. He felt it. He heard what he said to Edison. He rehearsed his future again and again in his mind. He prepared himself mentally. He knew what he wanted! Day and night he lived his destiny.
As Hill pointed out, and I referred to in previous posts, it wasn’t a far off wish. He didn’t imagine it as ‘some day’ this might happen. Barnes saw himself already as a partner of Edison. His future took place now! In his mind he already WAS a partner.
He was living the partner life, doing what partners do. He saw it, heard it, felt it! It took place in the present in Barnes mind not someday in the future. Some day never comes. The subconscious mind only knows right now. This is what you and I must do!
Act As If It Is Already Yours And It Is
Live the future in our minds as if it IS the present. Dwell on it. Be passionate! Be enthused! Have faith and know, be convinced of it. Rehearse it over and over. Live it day and night. Keep the white hot fires burning white hot. Passion and faith make it happen.
During the ensuing 5 years, Hill said, Barnes intensified the desire. He did not let it wane when nothing in his circumstances appeared to change. During that time he intensified his desire and his faith. This is what you must do. Intensity is important!
You must be willing to own it, command it, declare it, and live it night and day inside until you manifest it on the outside. This isn’t magic, though magical, it is intentional deliberate creation. When you get to that place inside yourself you KNOW it IS YOURS. Then, it truly is!
When you know it is yours you are ready to have it. When you are ready IT will happen. You will make it happen. This is HOW you think and grow rich. You create what you want by taking control of your thoughts and feelings and putting them to work for you.
You Find What You Expect To Find
It means you affirm what you want without doubt, fear or fail. You are absolutely committed to getting your goal. You burn the ships so that you have every reason to win. You leave yourself no other option! This is the mind of a champion. This is the mind of a victor!
Stop putting control outside of yourself. Stop blaming and whining about circumstances. Take 100% responsibility for making it happen. YOU determine what will happen not the circumstances.
During tough economic times some people make millions. It isn’t the outer that is most important it is your INNER world that is most important! YOU make your dreams come true. YOU do this be taking charge and never letting anything stop you. YOU are the key!
This is the mindset of a creator. Every thought, every action says, ‘this is mine. This is what I create and make happen.’ Your thoughts and actions align. You move congruently with purpose and total dedication. You become unstoppable! You make it a MUST have! No other option.” Rex Sikes
Have a beautiful day!
