Where Everything Begins
There is an invisible talisman (mental attitude) that has two amazing powers: it has the power to attract wealth, success, happiness and well-being; and it has the power to pull these things back - to deprive you of everything that makes life worth living.
It is the first of these powers, which allows a few men to rise to the top and stay there. It is the second that keeps other men at the bottom of their lives. It is the latter that drags other men down from the top when they have made it.
A starting point
You must learn to develop the habit of recognizing, relating to, assimilating and using universal precepts and adopting them as your own. Then move on to desirable action.
And what are the precepts that can be applied? They can be learned and applied by young and old:
Greatness comes to those who acquire a burning desire to achieve high goals.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who seek to move forward with a positive mental attitude.
To become an expert in any human action, practice is required.
