To create a truly successful home based business, you need to mix thoughts, goals and aspirations with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire.
Edwin C. Barnes discovered how true it is that people really do Think and Grow Rich. His discovery came little by little. He started of with a burning desire to become a business associate of the great Edison.
Note that he wanted to work with Edison, not for him. His desire was clear and definite. He had a clear picture un his mind where he wanted to be.
You will have a better understanding of the thirteen principles that lead to riches when you carefully observe how Barnes went about translating his desire into reality.
I’m sure you’ll agree that the majority of people find it much easier to complain about why they can not do something rather than learning how they can do it.
By reading and studying The NEW Think And Grow Rich, you will find out that you can change that attitude.
You see when the desire to work with Edison first flashed into Barnes’s mind; he was in no position to act upon it. Two difficulties stood in his way. Firstly, he did not know Mr. Edison nor did Mr Edison know him and secondly, he did not have enough money to pay his railroad fare to Orange, New Jersey.
These obstacles would have been sufficient to discourage the majority of people from making any attempt to carry out their desire. But he was no ordinary person! He was so determined to find a way to reach his goal and he knew he was not going to give up. So, he traveled to New Jersey on a freight train.
When he finally reached Edison’s laboratory, he had not bathed, was dirty and untidy. Nevertheless, he walked into Edison laboratory and announced he had come to go into business with the inventor. Now imagine that for a moment if you will. What must have looked like a homeless guy who had just walked in off the street throws himself before a multi-millionaire businessman stating that they were going to go into business together. Pretty amazing thought I am sure you will agree.
Do you see the difference between Barnes and most other people?
Barnes’s attitude and his burning desire to develop his business relationship with Mr Edison was his driving force.
The difference between those who see themselves as successful, become successful and create hugely profitable home based businesses and those who do nothing is their attitude. Much like the attitude shown by Barnes.
Picture your goal, whatever it may be. Let your imagination fuel your desire. Let that burning desire fuel and spill over into your attitude. Without the right attitude, Barnes would never have found a way to travel to New Jersey and would neve have plucked up the courage to meet with Mr Edison, a person whom he never met.
With the right attitude, you can transmute your desire for a highly profitable home based business into reality.
