Man is the architect of his own fortune. He can make or unmake himself. He can be weak or strong, rich or poor, according to the way he manipulates his consciousness and develops his inherent ability. This requires will power, determination, and self-improvement through work, activity, and study. He must learn to clothe his mind with beautiful garments of strength and power. He must be willing to spend as much money, time, and patience to bring about this mental garment as he would in clothing his body, beautifully and efficiently.
