And here is an encouragement statement which carries with a citizen of great and significance, not insignificance. Great significance. Oh, sorry. It's great significance.

The mind adds up and becomes a part of daily experiences upon which it feels fear, that most of all enemies can be effectively cured by force, reputation of act of courage.
Everyone who have seen active service environments this before leaving.

Measure yourself courageously point by point and see how many of the eight factors of persistence you like. The analyzers may lead to discovery that will give up a new grip on yourself, symptoms of lack of persistence. Here you will find the real enemies which stands between you and not worthy achievement. Here you will find here, you will find not only the symptoms indicating weakness of persistence but also the deeply seated subconscious cause of this. Witness studied at least carefully and face yourself squarely if you really wish to know who you are and what you're capable of doing. These are the weakness which must be mastered by all who accumulate riches, failure to recognize and to clearly define exactly what one wants. Procrastination with or without cars. Usually backed up with their formidable areas of alibis and excuses lack of interest is acquiring specialized knowledge in this isn't the habit of passing the buck on all occasions instead of facing issues squarely.
Also backed by a DVs. The habit of relying upon alibis instead of creating a definite plans for the purpose for the solutions of problems. Self satisfaction. There is but little remedy for this affliction and no hope for those who suffered from it. Indifference usually reflected in one's readiness to compromise on all occasions rather than meet opposition and fight it. The habit of blaming others for one's mistake and accepting unfavorable circumstances as being un avoided. Weakness of these are due to neglect in the choice of motives that impelled action, willingness, being eager to quit at the first sign of defeat based upon one or more than six basic fears, lack of organized plans. Place in writing where there may be an alliance, the habit of neglecting to move on ideas or to grab the opportunity when it presents itself, losing instead of winning the habit of compromising with poverty instead of aiming at riches. General absence of ambition to be in and to go down and to own searching for older shortcuts to reach is trying to get without giving a fair equivalent, usually reflected in the habit of gambling in the O ring.
To drive serb. Bergen's fear of criticism, failure to create plans and to put them into actions because of what people will think do or say this enemy belongs at the head of the list because it generally exists in one subconscious man where its presence is not recognized. See the six basic spears in the later chapters, let us examines some of the symptoms of the fear of criticism. The majority of people permits relatives, friends and public at large to so influence them that they cannot live their own lives because their fair criticism huge number of people make mistakes in marriage, stand by the bargains and go through life miserable and unhappy because they fear criticism which may follow if they correct the mistakes. Anyone who has submitted to this form of fear knows that every irreparable damage it does by destroying ambitions, self reliance and the dessert to achieve millions of people neglect to acquire belated education after having left school because they fear criticism. Communist numbers of men and women, both young and old permit relatives to wreck their lives in the name of Duty.
Because of the fair criticism. Duty does not require any person to submit to the destructions of his personal embassies and the right to live his own life in his own way. People refuse to take chances in business because they fear the criticism which maybe follow if they fail. The fear of criticism is much in such cases stronger than the desire for success. Too many people refuse to set high goals for themselves or even neglect selecting a career because they fear the criticism of relatives and friends who miss it. Don't aim so high. People will think you're crazy when Andrew Carnegie suggested that I devote 20 years to the organization of a philosophy of individual achievements. My first impulse of thought was fear of what people might say. The suggestion set up. It was for me far out for proportion to any I have ever conceived as quick as a flash. my mind began to create alibis and excuses all of them. Traceable to the internet, fears of criticism. Something inside of me said you can do it, you cannot do it.
The job is too big and records too much then. What will your relatives thinks of you? How will you earn a living? No one has ever organized a philosophy of success. What right have been? What right have you to believe? You can do it who you are? Anyways to aim so high, remember your humble but what do you know about philosophy? People will think you're crazy and they did. Why hasn't some other person done this before now this and many other questions flashed into my mind and demand attention. It seems as if the whole world has suddenly turned its attention to me with the purpose of ridiculing me into giving up old dessert to carry out Mr. Carnegie suggestion. I had a fine opportunity then and there to kill off ambitions before it gained control of me. Later in life. After having analyzed thousands of people, I discovered the most ideas are stillborn and need the bird bread of life injected into them through definite plans of immediate actions. The time to nurse an idea is at the time of its birth every minute it leaves, gives it a better chance of surviving the fear of criticism is a bottom of the destructions of most ideas which never reached there, planning and excellence states Many people believe that measurable success is the result of favorable breaks breaks, there is an element of grounds for their belief.
But those, depending entirely upon luck are nearly always disappointed because they overlook another important factor which must be present before one can be of your success. It is the knowledge with which favorable favorable breaks can be made to order. During the depression, Wc Fields, the comedian lost all his money and found himself without income without a job and his means of earning a living what they will no longer existence More ever. He was past 60 when many men considered themselves old. He was so eager to stage a comeback that he offered to walk without paying the new field movies. In addition to his trouble, he fell and injured his neck too many. That would have been the place to give up and quit. But fields are persistent. He knew that if he carried on he would get the break sooner or later and he did get them. But not by chance, mary drexler's found herself down and out with her money, going with no job. When she was about 60 she too went after the brakes and got them her persistence brought an astounding trump late in life, long beyond the age when most mens and womens are doing with ambitions to achieve Eddie cantor pelosis money in the 1929 Stock Crest, but he still had his persistence and his courage With this plus two prominent eyes.
He exploited himself back into an income of dollar 10,000 every verily. If one has persistence, one can get along very well without many other qualities. The only break anyone can afford to rely upon is a self made break. This comes through the applications of a persistence. The starting point is the definitiveness of purpose. Examine the 1st 100 people you meet ask them what they want most in life and 98 of them will not be able to tell you if you press them for answers. Some will say security, many will say money if you will say happiness and others will say fame and power and still others will say social recognize asian is in life, ability to sing, dance or right but none of them will be able to defend these terms or give the slightest and the identification identity indications of a plan by which they hope to attend this visually expressed wishes which is do not respond to the visas. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desired through constant persistence.
How to develop persistence. There are four simple steps which lead to the habit of persistence. They call for no great ambition amount of intelligence, no particular amount of education but little time or effort. The necessary steps are a definite purpose backed by burning desire for its fulfillment. A definite plan expressing continuous accent, a mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influence, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends, and a contents. A friend, aliens with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plants and purpose and when and when. A kind of spirit. Wait, wait, wait, wait. These four steps are essential for success in all walks of life. The entire purpose of the tartan principle of this philosophy is to enable one to take these four steps. As a matter of habit. These are the steps by which one may control one's economic destiny. They are the steps they lead to freedom and the independence of thought. They are the steps that lead to riches in small or great qualities.
They lead the way to power, fame and worldly recognition. They are the four steps with gradually favorable breaks. There are the steps that convert dreams into physical relatives. They lead also to the master of fear, discouragement, indifference. There is a magnificent, magnificent rivers for all who want to take this four step. It is privileged for writing one's own ticket and of making life hell! Whatever price is asked. I have no way of knowing the effects. But I ventured to conjecture that Miss Mrs Valley Simpson's great love for men was not accidentally know that result of favorable Brexit. There was a bonding dessert and a careful searching at every step of the world, of the way our first duty was to learn what is the greatest things on the earth the Master called it. Love not manmade rules, criticism, bitterness lenders or political merits, but love. She knew what she wanted. Not after she met the Prince of Wales. But long before that, twice when she had failed to find it, she had the courage to continue herself to think on self.
Be true, and it must follow as the night of the day tokens not then be false to any man. Her rise for obscurity was the slow, progressive persistence order. But it was sure she tramped over unbelievably long odds, and no matter who you are, or what your meeting of Wallis Simpson, or the king who gave up his crown for her love, She is an astounding example of applied persistence. An instructor of the rules of self determination, from where the entire world might profitably take lessons. When you think of Wallis Simpson, think of one who knew what she wanted, and so the greatest impaired on hard to get it! Women who complained that that this is a man's world, that women do not have an equal chance to win, how it to themselves to study carefully the life of this unusual woman who had an age with which most women considered all captured the affections of the most desirable bachelor in the entire world, and what of King Edward? What lessons may be learned from his spot in the world's greatest drama of recent times.
Did he pay too high a price for the affections of the woman of his choice? Surely No one, but he can give the correct answer. The rest of us can only conjecture this much. We know the king came into the world without his own consent. He was born to great riches without costing them. He was persistently sought in marriage, politicians and statements throughout europe, those duggars, no wagers and princess at history, because he was the first one of his parents. He invited a crown which he did not seek and perhaps did not deserve For more than 40 years. He was not. A free agent, could not live his life in his own way ahead, but little privacy, and finally assumed duties inflicted upon him when he was ascended the throne, some will say, with all this place in skiing Edwards would have found a piece of men contentment, and then joy of living. The truth is, that back of all privilege of a crone, all the money, the fame and the power inherited by King Edward, there was emptiness which could be filled only by love.
His greatest desire was for love. Long before he met Wallis Simpson, he doubtless feel his great universal emotional emotion tugging at the strings of the of his herd, beating up on the door of his stool and crying over out, expressing, expressing. And when he made a kindred spirit crying out for the same holy privilege of expression, he recognized it, and without fear of apology, opened his heart and lead it, bedded intern, all the skin. The numbers in the world cannot destroy the beauty of this international drama through which two people found love and had courage to face open criticism, renounce all else to give it holy expressions. King Edward's decision to give up the throne of the world's most powerful empire for the privilege of going the reminder of the way through life with the woman of his choice was a decision that required courage. Does the decision also had a price? But who has the right to say the price was too great.
It's really not who he who said he among you, who is without sin. Let him cast the first stone as a suggestion to any evil minded person who chooses to find fault with the Duke of Winchester Winds wind sword because his deserve was for love and for openly declaring his love for Wallis Simpson and giving up his throne for her. Let it be remembered that the open declaration was not essential. He could have followed the customs of when they stand liaison which has prevailed in europe for centuries without giving up either his throne or the woman of his choice. And there would have been no complaint from either charge or lightly. But this unusual man was built off sterner stuff. His love was clean. It was deep and sincere. It represented the one thing which, above all else he deserved. Therefore he took what he wanted and paid the price demanded if europe had been blessed with more rules with the human heart and the threats of honesty of ex King Edward.
For the past centuries. That unfortunate hemisphere now sitting with great hate, last political convenience and trade of would have been different and a better story to tell a story in which love and not hate would rule. In the words of Stuart Austin, we will realize our cup and bring these doors to ex King Edward and Wallis Simpson blessed is the man who from the blackest. They can see the luminous figure of love and singing, singing and singing say twitter father and daughter list are the thoughts. I have a few in this. What's would be paid tribute to the two people who more than all of others in modern terms have been the victims of criticism and the recipients of abuse because they found large, greatest razor and claiming Mrs Simpson read and approved. This analyzes most of the world will applaud the Duke of Windsor and Wallis Simpson because of their persistence in searching until they found life's greatest river all of us can profit by following their example in our answers for that, which we demand of life.
What mystical power gives to men of processing the capacity to master difficulties. Does the quality of persistent set up in the once man, some from spiritual mental or chemical activity, which gives one access to supernatural force, thus infinite intelligence through itself on the left itself on the side of President, who still fights on after the battle has been lost with the whole whole world on the opposing side. This and many other similar questions have arises in my mind. As I have observed men like Henry Ford who started at scratch and billion industrial emperor of huge proportions with little else in the way of beginning but persistence or thomas edition, who with less than three months of schooling became the world's last dating inventor and converted persistence into the talking machine dot moving picture machines. And that in send their sense like to say something to say nothing of half of 100 other useful inventions.
I had the hippie privilege of analyzing both Mr. Edison's and Mr Ford, Year by year, over a long period of years and therefore the opportunity to stand them and their close friends, so I speak from actual knowledge. When I said that I found no quality safe persistence in either of them. That even remotely suggested the major source of their stupendous tennis as one makes an impartial study of the prophets, philosophers, Miracle man and religious leaders of the past. One is drawn to the in innovative conclusion that persistent control, concentrations of effort and definitiveness of purpose, where the measures are of their achievements. Consider, for example, the strange and fascinating story of Mohammed analyze his life compared him with a man of humans in this modern age of industry and finance, and observed how they have one outstanding trade in common persistence. If you are keenly interested in standing studying the strange power which gives potency to persistence with the biography of Mohammed.
Especially the one by this brief review of that book, by thomas. Sarg you so grew in the herald, tribune will provide a preview of the rare trade in the store. For those who take the time to read the inter story of one of the most astounding example of the power of persistence known to civilization. The, the last great profit review by thomas, saturday you Mohammed was a prophet, but he never performed a miracle. He was no domestic. He had no formal schooling. He did not begin his mission until he was 14 when he announced until that he was a messenger of God, bringing word of the truth religion. He was ridiculed and labeled a lunatic. Children treat him and woman too filled up on him. He was banished from his native city. Mecca and his followers were stripped of their worldly goods and sending to desert after him When he had been preached 10 years and he had nothing so for it but vanished man poverty and ridiculous. Yet another. Yet before another 10 years had passed.
He was dictator of old Arabia, ruler of Mecca, and the head of New World Religion, which was to sweep to the Danube and the Baroness before exist ousting the computers. He gave it. The amputees was truthful. The power of words, the efficiency of rare and Menschen nous with God. His career never made sense. Mohammed was born to impoverished members of leading family of Mecca. Because Mecca, the crossroads of the world home of magic stones called the Gaba cover great city of trade and the center of trade roads was unsanitary. It's Children were sent to erase in the desert of bay downs moment was thus nurtured, drawing strength and health From the milk of Norman Zacharias, mothers. He tended sheep and soon hired out to reach window video as a leader of Caravans. He traveled to all parts of the Eastern World, talked with many men of diverse beliefs and observed the decline of Christianity into wearing sets.
When he was 28 Khadija, the video look upon him with favor and married him heart. Father would have objected to such a marriage. So she got him drunk and held him up while he gave the Pattern of blessing. For the next 12 years, Mohammed lived as a rich and respected and really through trader. Then he took to wandering in the desert and one day he returned with the first words of the Koran and the told Khadija that the archangel Gabriel had approached appeared to him and said that he was to be the messenger of God, the Koran. The revealed word of God was the closest thing to a miracle in Muhammad's life, he had not seen a poet, He had known gifts of God. He had the words of the Koran as he received them and receded them to the faithful were better than any verse which the professional points of the tribes could produce. This is to the Arabs who was in the record to them. The gift of what was the greatest gift. The poet was all powerful.
In addition, the current said that all men were equal before God that the world should be democratic state. Islam, it is was it was this political Heresy plus moments deserve to destroy all the 360 items in the courtyard of the kabah which brought about his banishment. The idols brought, brought the desert trap maker and that mean trip. So the businessman's of mecca, the capitalistic of which he had been one set up one moment, then he retreated to the desert and demanded so very so virginity, aborigine silver region over the silver rigidity over the world. The rise of islam began out of the desert came a flame with could not be extinguished a democratic army fighting as a unit and prepared to die without wincing Mohammed had invented the jews and christian to join him for he was not building a new religion. He was calling all who believe in one God to join in a single phase. If the jews and christian had accepted his invitation, Islam would have conquered the world.
They didn't, they could not even accept moments in innovation of humans warfare. When the armies of Prophet entered Jerusalem, not a single person was killed because of his faith. When the crusaders entered the city centuries later, not them muslim men, women or child was spared, but the christian did, except one muslim idea, the place of learning the university.
