Thoughts Are Things

Chapter 1 – Thoughts are Things

Hill 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.”
Hill Also States “One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting 
when one is overtaken by temporary defeat. Every person is guilty of this mistake 
at one time or another.”
As I read through this chapter I found myself thinking of the children's story 
'The Little Engine That Could'

The story tells of a train making its way to a small village on the other side of 
a mountain to deliver toys to some good little girls and boys. On its way the 
train broke down and couldn't finish the journey.
A short time later a powerful passenger train engine came along and the toys 
asked for help but the passenger train engine responded smugly “hahaha, me 
pull you? I only pull the richest and best dressed of passengers, I certainly don't 
pull toys, now get out of my way” and away it went. The toys were saddened
 thinking they'd never get to the girls and boys of the village.
It seemed like an eternity later when a big, burly freight train engine came by 
and the toys asked if he could help them get to the village. He responded “Me 
help You? I only haul important freight, not the likes of you and besides, I'm 
tired” and he rolled off to the freight yard. The toys were devastated!
As they watched the freight train engine roll into the freight yard they saw a 
tiny blue engine rolling out of the yard toward them. They discussed amongst 
themselves whether or not to ask her for help as they didn't think she'd have 
the power to pull them over the mountain and into to the village. The toys 
made the decision to ask anyway.
“Excuse me Little Blue Engine, we've broken down on our way to the good boys 
and girls of the village over the mountain . . . do you think you could pull us the 
rest of the way?”
The Little Blue Engine replied “I Think I Can” and hooked herself to the front of 
the broken down engine and started to pull. Ever so slowly they began moving 
up the mountain, the Little Blue Engine puffing and puffing but not giving up . . . 
saying “I Think I Can, I Think I Can, I Think I Can.” It was getting harder and 
harder as she pulled the toys up the mountain but she never quit and eventually 
she reached the top. Over the top she went and started going faster and faster. 
The toys all cheered as the train started down the hill gaining momentum faster 
and faster she went as she said “I Knew I Could, I Knew I Could, I Knew I Could.”

I think we can all relate to the story above. When we get started in our Network 
Marketing careers we're excited, we tell everyone about our business and what 
we're going to achieve. As we go rolling along we often run into those like the 
'passenger train engine and the freight train engine' who laugh at us and tell us 
we'll never make it and we're not worthy of their time, and if we quit, they're right!
Some of us don't quit . . . we develop the definiteness of purpose, persistence and 
the burning desire that Hill speaks of (like the toys in the story) and eventually we 
find someone who has the same qualities we now possess (the little blue engine) and 
we forge on together no matter how hard it seems, no matter how slowly it's going. 
We forge on saying “I Think I Can, I Think I Can, I Think I Can” (our self talk) and we 
get to the top of the mountain and gain momentum down the other side.
Then we do it again and again and again until we find our 4 or 5 Little Blue Engines. 
We mentor them, we encourage them and we let them know that we know what 
they're going through because we've gone through it and we tell them 
“You Can Do It . . . We Believe in You”
We teach our 4 or 5 Little Blue Engines to “Think They Can” and then we say in unison 
“I Knew I Could” because “Thoughts are Things”
And then we'll realize the following quote from Hill “WHEN RICHES BEGIN TO COME THEY 
COME SO QUICKLY, IN SUCH GREAT ABUNDANCE, THAT ONE WONDERS WHERE THEY 
HAVE BEEN HIDING DURING ALL THOSE LEAN YEARS.”
