Quote from Wallace D. Wattles:
It is within the power of every man to become great.
Read less and think more. Read about great things and think about great questions and issues.
Do not pay too much attention to the advice or suggestions of those around you.
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.
Every man comes into the world with a predisposition to grow along certain lines, and growth is easier for him along those lines than in any other way.
No man has yet become so great in any faculty but that it is possible for some one else to become greater.
There is not the least cause for worry about financial affairs; every person who wills to do so may rise above want, have all he needs, and become rich.
Do not try to convert others to your point of view, except by holding it and living accordingly.
Intellect helps us to see the best means and manner of doing the right thing, but intellect never shows us the right thing.
Man must cast out of himself everything which separates him from God. He must will to live the divine life, and he must rise above all moral temptations; he must forsake every course of action that is not in accord with his highest ideals.
There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty.
You can have nothing to fear.
