We are designed to be progressive and successful. That is the Law of Success. Financial well being is then the natural order of things. It is not God’s intention for us to be broke. Man is born to be rich. The powers inherent in him are inexhaustible. Each normal person is endowed with a complete set of faculties which, if properly developed and scientifically applied, will insure success, ever- growing success.
Man is made for progress. Every man contains within himself the capacity for endless development. Advancement into all things is the Law’s great purpose. By learning to work with the Law in promoting that aim, man may build himself into greater and greater success.
Higher faculties, remarkable talents, superior insight, and greater power are dormant in all, and by special psychological methods, these exceptional elements can be developed to an extraordinary degree for actual and practical use. Every mind can develop greatness. It is simply a matter of KNOWING HOW. True self-help, selfdiscovery, self-knowledge, and the proper instruction in applying one’s faculties and using one’s forces will advance any person. Practice will insure efficiency; use will bring forth results. Success, therefore, is within the reach of every aspiring man.
Begin now to take a superior view of yourself, your life and circumstances, and of things and persons in general. As you mentally perceive the better and greater, you will consciously and unconsciously reach out for the better and the greater. In other
words, your thoughts, desires, words, and mental actions will gradually become filled with the “spirit of progress” and your faculties will grow stronger and your powers will increase.
Catch the spirit of the words “I can” and you have the key to the successful attitude. Know you can succeed, and proceed to think, live, and act in that strong conviction. You may search everywhere, anywhere, to discover the mystic secret of success, only to find that in the end it is all contained in these two little words, “I can.”
Modern psychology has discovered that the person who thinks he can will speedily develop the power that can. This is a demonstrable law of the mind. Persistently think you can do what you want to do, and it will not be long before you find yourself actually doing that thing. There is no miracle about it; the law works that way. The principle involved is that if the “I can” attitude is adopted, the mind will proceed to direct all energies into those faculties which are employed in doing that which it is desired to accomplish, and steadily build them up until they become large enough and strong enough actually to perform what previously appeared to be impossible.
You can achieve your ambition. Aim high and build well. What you imagine to yourself as success can be reached. The Law never blunders; what she idealizes, she has the power to actualize; what she images in your mind, she has the power to produce materially. She ever seeks to build you up in your power and in success; that is her plan for you. The faculties possessed by all great and successful men are the same human faculties you possess. They gained some understanding of the right kind, and then they applied their faculties in the best way they knew for advancement, and so earned success.
