Part Twelve - Introduction

Part Twelve is enclosed herewith. In the fourth paragraph you will find the following statement: You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.

If you concentrate upon the thoughts given, if you give them your entire attention, you will find a world of meaning in each sentence, and will attract to yourself other thoughts in harmony with them, and you will soon grasp the full significance of the vital knowledge upon which you are concentrating.

Knowledge does not apply itself; we as individuals must make the application, and the application consists in fertilizing the thought with a living purpose.

The time and thought which some people invest in focused effort accomplishes wonders because it is properly directed with some special object in view. In order to do this, it is necessary to center your mental force upon a specific thought and hold it there. If you have ever looked through the viewfinder on a camera, you found that when the proper focus was obtained the picture was clear and distinct. This illustrates the power of concentration. When you can concentrate only upon the object which you have in view, you will have a clear, passionate, definite, distinct and focused outline of your ideal and the results will be in accordance with your mental picture.
