How can you get anything by merely wanting it? Through concentration you can get anything you want. Every desire can be gratified. But whether it is, will depend upon you concentrating to have that desire fulfilled. Merely wishing for something will not bring it. Wishing you had something shows a weakness and not a belief that you will really get it. So never merely wish, as you are not living in a fairy tale. You use up just as much brain force in “vain imaginings” as you do when you think of something worth while.
Be careful of your desires, make a mental picture of what you want and set your will to this until it materializes. Never allow yourself to drift without helm or rudder. Know what you want to do, and strive with all your might to do it, and you will succeed.
Many undertake to do things, but feel when they start they are going to fail and usually they do. To get what you want, you have to feel that you can accomplish anything you undertake. That is the whole secret of concentrating on getting what you want. And, remember, your soul is a center of all-power, and you can accomplish what you will to. “I’ll find a way or make one!” is the spirit that wins.
To achieve your goal you have to keep this thought in your mind. Every day do something that will put you nearer your goal. Each night before going to sleep you should ask yourself, “What did I do today?” In this way the thought was always kept in mind. Concentrate on becoming what you want to be, and you will become the person you want to be.
Don’t waste your mental powers in wishes. Don’t dissipate your energies by trying to satisfy every whim. Concentrate on doing something really worth while. The person that sticks to something is not the person that fails.
Your success today depends largely on concentrating on the interior law of force, for when you do this you awaken those thought powers or forces, which, when used in business, insures permanent results.
Until you are able to do this you have not reached your limit in the use of your forces. You make your own place, and whether it is important depends upon you. Through the power of concentration you can in time accomplish all right things and therefore do not be afraid to undertake whatever you really desire to accomplish and are willing to pay for in effort. Anything that is right is possible. That which is necessary will inevitably take place. If something is right it is your duty to do it, though the whole world thinks it to be wrong.
Don’t say I wish I was a great man or I wish I can do that. You can do anything that is proper and you want to do. Just say: You can. You will. You must. Just realize this and the rest is easy. You have the latent faculties and forces to subdue anything that tries to interfere with your plans.
