Chapter 4 - Thought and Purpose

He who conquers doubt and fear conquers failure

Those who have no central purpose in life will fall prey to petty worries which lead to failure, unhappiness, and loss. Find your purpose and set out to accomplish it, and make this purpose the centralizing point of your thoughts. Make your purpose your duty and devote yourself to it - not allowing your thoughts to wonder. Even if you fail again and again in your purpose, you will gain strength of character and this will be the measure of your success. Once you begin to think with purpose you will recognize failure as a pathway to success; you will make all conditions serve you and think strong, attempt fearlessly, and accomplish masterfully. Once you know your purpose, start to plan a path to its achievement and let go of doubts and fears as they break up the straight line of effort. Purpose, energy, power and all strong thoughts cease when doubt and fear creep in.
