Concentration Finds The Way
Everyone has two natures. One wants us to advance and the other wants to pull us back. The
one that we cultivate and concentrate on decides what we are at the end. Both natures are
trying to gain control.
The will alone decides the issue. A man by one supreme effort of the will may change his whole
career and almost accomplish miracles. You may be that man. You can be if you Will to be, for
Will can find a way or make one.
I could easily fill a book, of cases where men plodding along in a matter-of-fact way, were all at
once aroused and as if awakening from a slumber they developed the possibilities within them
and from that time on were different persons.
You alone can decide when the turning point will come.
It is a matter of choice whether we allow our diviner self to control us or whether we will be
controlled by the brute within us. No man has to do anything he does not want to do. He is
therefore the director of his life if he wills to be. What we are to do, is the result of our training.
We are like putty, and can be completely controlled by our will power.
Habit is a matter of acquirement. You hear people say: "He comes by this or that naturally, a
chip off the old block," meaning that he is only doing what his parents did. This is quite often the
case, but there is no reason for it, for a person can break a habit just the moment he masters
the "I will."
A man may have been a "good-for-nothing" all his life up to this very minute, but from this time
on he begins to amount to something. Even old men have suddenly changed and accomplished
wonders. "I lost my opportunity," says one. That may be true, but by sheer force of will, we can
find a way to bring us another opportunity.
There is no truth in the saying that opportunity knocks at our door but once in a lifetime. The fact
is, opportunity never seeks us; we must seek it. What usually turns out to be one man's
opportunity, was another man's loss. In this day one man's brain is matched against another's.
How To Develop Your Power of Concentration

It is often the quickness of brain action that determines the result. One man thinks "I will do it,"
but while he procrastinates the other goes ahead and does the work. They both have the same
opportunity. The one will complain of his lost chance. But it should teach him a lesson, and it
will, if he is seeking the path that leads to success.
Many persons read good books, but say they do not get much good out of them. They do not
realize that all any book or any lesson course can do is to awaken them to their possibilities; to
stimulate them to use their will power. You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but
that person will only know what he learns himself. "You can lead him to the fountain, but you
can't make him drink."
One of the most beneficial practices I know of is that of looking for the good in everyone and
everything, for there is good in all things. We encourage a person by seeing his good qualities
and we also help ourselves by looking for them. We gain their good wishes, a most valuable
asset sometimes.
We get back what we give out.
The time comes when most all of us need encouragement; need buoying up. So form the habit
of encouraging others, and you will find it a wonderful tonic for both those encouraged and
yourself, for you will get back encouraging and uplifting thoughts.
Life furnishes us the opportunity to improve. But whether we do it or not depends upon how
near we live up to what is expected of us. The first of each month, a person should sit down and
examine the progress he has made. If he has not come up to "expectations" he should discover
the reason, and by extra exertion measure up to what is demanded next time.
Every time that we fall behind what we planned to do, we lose just so much for that time is gone
forever. We may find a reason for not doing it, but most excuses are poor substitutes for action.
Most things are possible.
Ours may be a hard task, but the harder the task, the greater the reward. It is the difficult things
that really develop us, anything that requires only a small effort, utilizes very few of our faculties,

and yields a scanty harvest of achievement. So do not shrink from a hard task, for to accomplish
one of these will often bring us more good than a dozen lesser triumphs.
