  1. Thought contains a vital principle, because it is the creative principle of the Universe and by its nature will combine with other similar thoughts.
  2. As the one purpose of life is growth, all principles underlying existence must contribute to give it effect. Thought, therefore, takes form and the law of growth eventually brings it into manifestation.
  3. You may freely choose what you think, but the result of your thought is governed by an immutable law. Any line of thought persisted in will succeed in producing its result in the character, health and circumstances of the individual. Methods whereby we can institute habits of constructive thinking for those which we have found produce only desirable effects are therefore of primary importance.
  4. We all know that this can be done. Mental habits can be controlled, and the way to do it is to begin at once to only think constructive thoughts. Form the habit of analyzing every thought. If it is necessary, if its manifestation in the objective will be a benefit, to yourself, and to all whom it may affect in any way, keep it; treasure it; it is of value; it is in tune with the Infinite; it will grow and develop and produce fruit a hundred fold. Learn to keep the door open, keep in your mind, in your office, and in your world, every element that seeks admittance with a definite helpful end in view.
  5. If your thought has been favourable and constructive, and has resulted in any condition of accord or harmony in your environment, continue to cultivate a mental attitude which will be conducive to constructive thought.
  6. The imagination will be found to be a great assistance in this direction; the cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal out of which your future will emerge.
  7. The imagination gathers up the material by which the Mind weaves the fabric in which your future is to be clothed.
  8. Imagination is the light by which we can penetrate new worlds of thought and experience.
