“A single thought can revolutionize your life as it did mine. A single thought can make you rich or it can land you in prison for the rest of your life.” – Earl Nightingale
When I heard Earl make this statement, a light bulb went off for me. I got that you do not necessarily need either genius or persistence nor must you labor for decades in order to enjoy a few prosperous years. The recognition of an exceptionally valuable thought know no age or time or education or experience barriers or limitations.
My friend Paul Hartunian made a small fortune thanks to a single thought that occurred while watching a new broadcast about repairs being made to the famous Brooklyn Bridge; that people would pay for parts of the old bridge scrap as collectibles; that he could be the first guy to honestly “sell the Brooklyn Bride.”
Napoleon Hill tells the story of the man who revolutionized the grocery industry with the thought of “self-service.”
Ray Kroc look at the McDonald brothers’ thriving hamburger stand and thought: “duplicable.” These are all very practical applications. And we could list thousands of similar examples.
I thought you might be interested in the “single thoughts” that, in each case, literally changed my life, so here they are, in approximate order of occurrence. In the coming weeks I’ll go through each and provide some background or explanation on each.
