This is the most powerful army on EARTH! This army is ready for the bidding of any person who will command it.
Will you take charge?
Without the aid of a definite purpose the remainder of the arm will be useless to you. Find out, as early in life as possible, what your major purpose will be. Neil Donald Walsh said in the secret, “alot of us think there’s this imaginary blackboard in the sky that god has for us. We spend our entire life searching for this blackboard. However, whatever that purpose or mission is…is the mission we give ourselves.”
Remember, Lincoln’s major definite purpose was to free black slaves of the south and he turned that purpose into a reality. Roosevelt’s was to build the Panama Canal. Henry Ford’s was to build the best popular priced automobile on Earth. Bill Gates was to put a computer in every home in America.
If you can vitalize your mind with a definite purpose and immediately your mind becomes a magnet which attracts everything that harmonizes with that purpose.
The powerful man is the man who has developed, in his own mind, the entire fifteen qualities represented by the fifteen commanding officers shown in the picture. Before you can have power you must have a definite purpose; you must have self-confidence with which to back up that purpose; you must have initiative and leadership with which to exercise your self-confidence; you must have imagination in creating your definite purpose and in building the plans with which to transform that purpose into reality and put your plans into action. You must mix enthusiasm with your action or it will be insipid and without “kick.” You must exercise self-control. You must form the habit of doing more than paid for. You must cultivate a pleasing personality. You must acquire the habit of saving. You must become an accurate thinker, remembering, as you develop this quality, that accurate thought is based upon facts and not upon hearsay evidence or mere information. You must form the habit of concentration by giving your undivided attention to buy one task at a time. You must acquire the habit of co-operation and practice it in all your plans. You must profit by failure, your own and that of others. You must cultivate the habit of tolerance. Last, but by no means the least important, you must make the golden rule the foundation of all you do that affects other people. – Napoleon Hill.
