Think and Grow Rich

Chapter 13- The Brain

By Michael Bird,

Torrence, CA


Think and Grow RichWhatever is happening in our lives inside and outside is the mirror of
our brain, The Chief Magnet. My life moves in the direction of my most
dominating thoughts.  And it has been so from the day I got here and will
to the day I leave and possibly after I pass from my body.  Whoa!!

My relationships, my thoughts, my feelings, my actions, what I do and who I
think I am is all the magnetic design of my brain and what I do with it and
make up.  I attract people, places and things to my interpretation of my

For most of my life I thought life is whatever I thought I have been dealt and
I would have to live through, some times painfully, to whatever life doled out
… thus  I believed that I am my history and my story. I am my pedigree of
my family, its history,  my friends and my decisions and my environment
without being able to change any of it and having to live with it.

Now because of my focus in the Mentoring for Free mastermind, I am beginning to
figure out that “I am the Dealer” and I have been given by the ultimate power,
the cards and the deck(s) (sometimes many decks) of what I want to play in

I am “Source” thus “ I Am” if “I Am” then if it is to be it is up to me. Just
“Be”! All quantum physics principles and high spiritual stuff and what Emmett
Fox called the “mental equivalent energy.” I bring whatever I say so and am
wanting to interpret and make true or not true. I am in charge of my life. Or

It is my choice. God gave me this life and I what I do is what I give back to

Mentoring for free has given me a vital piece of living life the way I
want to live. I am the Author. It does not matter who I have been or yet to be
and what I have done or not done yet. It only matters what I want from this
moment and point on.

Regardless of what you are or what you have been, you can still become what you
may want to be.

I now clearly know, because I say so, that I can Forgive and honor the past,
Celebrate the present, and invent the future for me and any one I want to play
with in life.

I am mindful that I must respect the urgency and delicate gift of life and be
in gratitude for the moment or it will slip away and I will go into the dark
survival of regret and miss the precious present and the gift of designing and
making the moment. It is up to me to make each day my masterpiece.

There are two passages I want to share with you and mean whole lot about me

The first one by Og Mandino, has me pay attention to the people and life around
me and my own mortality and comes from my true heart of love for others and
living life.

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead
by midnight. Extend them all the care, kindness and understanding you can
muster. Your life will never be the same again.”

Secondly, through my higher power – God’s love and the gift of life I can sow
and seed the following by St Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to

to be understood as to understand;

to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Any thing I want can be can inserted into this soul loving contemplative
prayer. It is the proper use of the will and by paying attention we will know
how to handle any situations which use to baffle us and we will intuitively
know what and who we are to be for ourselves and “Others” (Yes with a capital
O) in making a life we say is worth living.

Some of you know I experienced a very challenging time the past few years to be
a significant part of my sons life as his father. A few weeks back I shared my
story of that challenge and I appreciate your support and love to my

Because of my participation of sharing my plight on this forum with you openly
I have been healing and forgiving and seeing how much I can give to everyone
involved by focusing on the positive and lessons learned involved.

This week I have chosen to work more diligently with a my 11 year old son Max
(and his mom if she is open), in introducing the Mentoring for free principles
to them and help them access and understand it.

First I want him to know he is the author if his life and can make it however
he wants it to be.

I will show him it is the feeding of the mind with loving positive life giving
thoughts which will move him into the direction of what ever and wherever we
want to go in life.

It all begins with a blank page and whatever I write and declare for my life
taken with committed action that will surely come to pass as the life I want to

Mentoring for free is a forum of True freedom to design a life worth living and
will only be valuable by sharing it with those we love and care about. That is
my vision and it is coming alive.

Thank Mentoring for Free Master mind for your love and what we are choosing to
create together
