Be Ye Strong!
by Dr Norman Vincent Peale
(Pawling, NY, USA)
I believe the faithful following of these five rules will revolutionize the life of any person.
First: Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid. The person who is afraid cuts himself off from the flow of power; but when you venture boldly, there comes a flow of power in response.
Second: Deny adverse conditions. Don't go around saying or thinking: "Conditions are against me." Face facts, but realize it often happens that a person is defeated not so much by the facts of a situation as by his negative interpretation of the facts. In every problem, there is an inherent good. Believe That!
Third: Picture good outcomes. By envisioning good things, you actually bring good influences into play; both within yourself and in the world around you.
Fourth: Pray for every person you meet with by name, that he or she may benefit from the dealings you have with him or her.
Fifth: Practice Christian love toward everybody.
