Examined the first hundred people you meet, ask them what they want most in life, and ninety eight of them will not be able to tell you. If you press them for an answer, some will say HAPPINES, other will say FAME AND POWER and still other will say SOCIAL RECOGNITION, EASE IN LIVING but none of them will be able to define these terms or give the clear indication of a PLAN by which they hope to attain these vaguely expressed wishes.
Riches do not respond to Wishes. They respond only to Definite Plans, backed by Definite Desires, through constant PERSISTENCE.
HOW TO DEVELOP PERSISTENCE
- A Definite Purpose backed by Burning Desire for its Fulfillment.
- A Definite Plan expressed in Continuous Action.
- A Mind Closed tightly Against All Negative and Discouraging Influences.
- Make a Friendly Alliance with one or more persons who will Encourage me to Follow through with Both of my Plan and Purpose.
