Would it be ok if I shared my lesson on Chapter 7 from Think and Grow Rich for this week’s Think and Grow Rich Lessons with You and the lessons from 3 brilliant friends with their insights. A program that has helped thousands to change their lives and to become the person that they were intended to be. It has helped myself to become a better husband, father and friend.
You can imagine Your goal or dream all You want, the question comes back to how solid is Your plan to achieve Your goal or dream. What are You going to do achieve Your own goal or dream as a person. In my own imagination a number of own goals has been achieved through a plan often it has been one that has got refined over time.
When first met Jenny my own plan consisted of what the woman that was going to marry looked like, who they were. Jenny meet all those ideas on the refined list over the time, that plan was just keeping on going until found the compatible person and someone who formed a good relationships and friendship with.
It’s the same in our businesses and teams, that we keep on working until we find those who we are compatible with and can work with. We need to keep on working to build those friendships with those who we can build a team with, extending the hand of friendship until we find that right person. Who takes our friendships and shares it in kind.
Our plans at the moment are the setting up of the nursery and getting ready for our first born due May 2017. Also preparing for our first family trip to New Zealand to allow our Son to meet family and friends for the first time for 3 weeks in August. The plan for this trip alone has to contain where were are going, who we are going to visit and for how long we are going to be at each place, when traveling the sights of New Zealand as a family.
We need to plan every area of our business to the point where we get to the stage where we consider ourselves a success in what we are looking to achieve in our lives; our plan needs to say what we are going to do to achieve our goal and dream. What we intend on doing with our businesses and lives as a person.
Part of my own plan needs to be planning for taking care of our son leaving where I am working and being able to look after our son at home. That would be a dream come true, being a actively involved father in his life, its time to create that plan and refine and build it until achieving that goal.
When our plans fail to work we need to take a look at that plan and consider where we need to work on to achieve our goal is it the friends who we are talking to, is it the type of people is it our goal on its own. Do we believe in our goal. We need to plan our goal and its achievement refining it as we go along. As some areas will work, others will need tweeking.
I am just curious what is Your plan to achieve Your goal, personally that has been the hardest area to plan as there has never been a truly formal plan written down to achieve that goal.
Thank You to my amazing wonderful friends, mentors and family Linda and Michael Dlouhy, along with my own amazing mentor and friend Ken Klemm for Your ongoing guidance love and support. Thanks to my amazing wife Jenny for Your love support and encouragement, thanks to our Son for the love Your bring. Thanks to everyone for Your own friendship and love,

Chapter 7 Organized Planning
Keep in mind these facts:—
First. You are engaged in an undertaking of major importance to you. To be sure of success,
you must have plans which are faultless.
Second. You must have the advantage of the experience, education, native ability and imagination
of other minds. This is in harmony with the methods followed by every person who has accumulated
a great fortune.
No individual has sufficient experience, education, native ability, and knowledge to insure the
accumulation of a great fortune, without the cooperation of other people. Every plan you adopt,
in your endeavor to accumulate wealth, should be the joint creation of yourself and every other
member of your “Master Mind” group.
You may originate your own plans, either in whole or in part, but SEE THAT THOSE PLANS ARE
It should be encouraging to know that practically all the great fortunes began in the form of
compensation for personal services, or from the sale of IDEAS. What else, except ideas and
personal services, would one not possessed of property have to give in return for riches?
Broadly speaking, there are two types of people in the world. One type is known as LEADERS,
and the other as FOLLOWERS. Decide at the outset whether you intend to become a leader in
your chosen calling, or remain a follower.
The difference in compensation is vast. The follower cannot reasonably expect the compensation
to which a leader is entitled, although many followers make the mistake of expecting such pay.
HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED! That is just the point I am trying to emphasize. TIMES HAVE CHANGED!
Moreover, the change is reflected not merely in railroad offices and on street cars, but in other
walks of life as well. The “public-be-damned” policy is now passé. It has been supplanted by the
“we-are-obligingly-at-your-service, sir,” policy.

I love organization. I want my Sharpie pens in a certain place on my desk so I can find them. I don’t like a lot of clutter because it messes with my mind.
That being said, my morning routine is not all that super organized.
I get up around 7 AM, have a cup of coffee, and spend time with my husband. At 8:30 three days a week I head to the gym. The rest of the day I’m working my insurance job, taking care of my mom, doing household stuff, and squeezing in my network marketing business when I can.
The other day I stumbled across a YouTube video called The Morning Miracle. There are lots of videos out there by people who are loving their early morning “Organized Planning.”
Studies show that successful people get up early. Hal Elrod has made a study of what these people do during that FIRST hour. He identified 6 basic areas and it seemed most successful people were doing 2 or 3 out of the six things. He decided to do ALL SIX and has been astonished at the results in his life and financial success. The acronym SAVERS takes you through ALL SIX areas.
S – Silence (Prayer & Meditation)
A – Affirmations (Results oriented; articulate exactly what you want and your level of commitment, why you want it, and when you want it)
V – Visualize (visualize you doing the actions and feeling the emotions)
E – Exercise (When Robert Kiyosaki was introduced to The Miracle Morning, he added 3 minutes of exercise to his Morning Miracle routine even though he was exercising later. He was surprised at the results. Even if you are going to the gym later, do something to get your blood pumping to your brain. A few jumping jacks or yoga poses will make a difference.)
R – Reading (a personal development book, business book, Scripture, etc.)
S – Scribing (writing down your thoughts)
As a newbie at this, I started with 4 minutes each for the first 4 areas. Reading and Scribing take me a little longer. I set an alarm on my phone to keep me moving through the steps so that I could accomplish all of them. You choose the amount of time for each area.
I’m already experiencing a wonderful improvement in my attitude and seeing life with greater clarity. My mind seems supercharged as I go through my day. Whatever I read and write seems more anchored in my mind; I “see” it throughout the rest of my day.
Here’s to an Organized Miracle Morning!

ORGANIZED PLANNING: THE CRYSTALLIZATION OF DESIRE INTO ACTION
The Sixth Step toward Riches
First Step toward Riches. I did not get Chapters 2, 3 and 4 until the third time
through this book, Think and Grow Rich. But I sure got it then. I put the
results of Chapters 2 on a 4″ x 6″ card. I copied the 5 Steps from Chapter 3
onto those cards. I created 2 autosuggestions (self-talks) from Napoleon Hill’s
suggestions in Chapter 4. I read these cards in their entirety twice daily. Once
before reading my email in the morning and the second time, the last thing I do
before laying my head down to go to sleep.
So why should we be so concerned about Chapter 2 Desire? It’s where everything
in your “Why” begins to be created. If you didn’t create your “Why”, may I
suggest you are not being COACHABLE. COACHABLE means you following a proven
system. If you did the opposite of what you were supposed to do, which is not
following instructions, may I suggest you are like a boat without a rudder? You
can’t expect to be successful from this Mentoring For Free training.
Yes, this is work. Notice this industry is called Network Marketing with the
emphasis on the work.
If you continue to go through the 15 chapters, there is hope for you. So let’s
see what Napoleon Hill recommends.
1. Ally yourself with a group of people who can make use of the mastermind
groups here in Mentoring For Free. Get on calls consistently. Develop a
relationship with members of the mastermind groups.
2. Decide the advantages and benefits you may offer in return for their
cooperation. One of the best you can offer is to participate, speak up
and post lessons here in Think and Grow Rich Lessons.
3. Meet at least twice weekly, the more the better. We have 9 weekly calls.
4. Have PERFECT HARMONY with each group you attend. Negative thoughts an
actions will be very harmful to you. Stay in a positive mindset. Watch the
“Stop It” video ass many times as it takes to get out of the negative funk.
Take a look at your self-talk. Make it more positive, if necessary.
If you take these actions lightly, your results from Mentoring For Free will be
less than you would like. But if you have made the decision you are “All In” and
going to do what it takes, you will demonstrate your desire to be COACHBLE. Then
I can GUARANTEE your success. Michael will also GUARANTEE it. So it’s your
You have many people here ready to help, but you must take the first step and
show you want success.
Michael Dlouhy for having developed their “Why” and their DESIRE as Barnes did
in Chapter 2 DESIRE. Thank you, thank you, thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy
for having created the best life and Network Marketing training available
anyplace, bar none.
I’m also grateful for all the members of each mastermind group for their
participation. Without them, Mentoring For Free would not be the best training
one can find anyplace, again, barring none. Thank you, thank you and thank you
to each of you. You are appreciated very much.
PS: I am grateful to each person who has downloaded Michael’s ebook branded with
my information. I am truly grateful to those who show a huge DESIRE to be
COACHABLE and DESIRE far more out of their life. I am here to support them,
however that looks to them. Thank you, thank you and thank you to each one for
your strong DESIRE.
