Quote from Wallace D. Wattles:
The man who is wise enough to know the right thing to do, who is good enough to wish to do only the right thing, and who is able and strong enough to do the right thing is a truly great man.
Whatever you habitually think yourself to be, that you are. You must form, now, a greater and better habit; you must form a conception of yourself as a being of limitless power, and habitually think that you are that being. It is the habitual, not the periodical thought that decides your destiny.
Nothing can go wrong in this world but yourself ; and you can go wrong only by getting into the wrong mental attitude.
You can never become a great man or woman until you have overcome anxiety, worry, and fear. It is impossible for an anxious person, a worried one, or a fearful one to perceive truth; all things are distorted and thrown out of their proper relations by such mental states, and those who are in them cannot read the thoughts of God.
You can have nothing to fear.
Do not talk about your greatness; you are really, in essential nature, no great than those around you.
There are no evil people; there are perfectly good people who are of the track, but they do not need condemnation or punishment; they only need to get upon the rails again.
Intellect helps us to see the best means and manner of doing the right thing, but intellect never shows us the right thing.
Always do what you feel deeply in the within to be the true thing to do.
There is no hurry. There is only God, and all is well with the world.
Faith—not a faith in one’s self or in one’s own powers but faith in principle; in the Something Great which upholds right, and which may be relied upon to give us the victory in due time. Without this faith it is not possible for any one to rise to real greatness.
You are a god in the company of gods and must conduct yourself accordingly.
