ow dare one person tell another that he “can’t” succeed or change his life-style or alter his dreadful circumstances? It happens every day!Sad to say, I have heard this pessimistic note in the voices of clergymen, teachers,lecturers and even in the voices of parents and loved ones of persons in need of real, concreteaid.IT IS NOT TRUE! You can change your life for the better – here and now! You
better your lot in life – if you desire it whole-heartedly. You have probably heard the story of how man only uses one-tenth of his brain, and you have probably heard the exclamation: “Justimagine what we could accomplish if we used our
brain!” Well, I’d like to alter that story just a bit. Ask yourself: “What would happen if I used
tenths of my brain?” Oh, it would benice to be able to utilize all of one’s brain power, but pause and consider the phenomenal thingsyou already accomplish with this denigrated ten-percent of brain! Vast strides in progress, world-travel, amazing inventions, love, hope, waking to each day, life itself – all are possible by the useof only ten percent of our brain power! If all this and more can be accomplished with so little,imagine what you can do with ten percent more brain power! Let’s not be greedy. Let’s besatisfied with the fulfillment of our desires, the meeting of your daily needs, the power tosurvive, and the joy of love and health. All of these things are yours when you unleash your dormant mental powers.
