By George Matthew Adams
YOU CAN make of yourself anything the germ of which lives within you. But to realize your full possibilities--to Dominate and Achieve--you must have High Aims, Ideals and Ambitions--all linked to an Iron Will. You yourself determine the height to which you shall Climb. Have you the Summit in view? All right--Then Start for it.
YOU CAN take command of yourself at any moment you desire to do so. You can make of yourself a towering figure in the work of the world. No one owns you. One hundred per cent of the Stock in your personal Corporation belongs to you. The little People of Destruction that whine at your door, whine at the door of every forceful man. You can make them mere Pygmies in their Power over your Future. Are you doing this Now? Well Then Keep it up!
YOU CAN get Smiles and Cheer and Continued Youth--simply by sticking to your own craft and running your own pilot wheel with "Your Best" as the Place of Port. Results will take care of themselves. Never mind the Sneers, the Criticisms, the Misjudgments of others. Time will fade them all away from you if your Accumulated Strength of Character has taught you how to Wait. Today is Yesterday's plans put into action. Tomorrow begins Today. Your Worth to yourself and the World is measured by what you contribute each day in Usefulness. Success is the Sum of the Days. Then Do Today.
YOU CAN make Success sure by Work, Sacrifice, Enthusiasm, Unselfishness and Self-control. You are the Master of your own Destiny. Take personal command of yourself Today.
