SET before your mind in clear and definite form one of your great life purposes. Then concentrate upon it for a few minutes each day, in a place where you can be quiet and relaxed. Direct your mind to it immediately upon rising in the morning, and the last thing upon retiring at night.

Carefully think out the best means and methods for realizing such purpose. Dwell upon the advantages, rewards, and pleasures which will come from its full realization.

Confidently believe yourself capable of achieving the great purpose you have in mind. Be enthusiastic about it. Turn to the contemplation of it at frequent intervals. Resolve to bend your best energies and abilities to its accomplishment. Ideals are heights of inspiration.
