 Most people drift through life, accepting whatever they can get without drawing on the forces of their minds.  Lake of a Definite Major Purpose is the most deadly form of personal limitation.  It has been plainly written in the records of men that all who demand something definite find ways and means of getting it if the persist in their demands.  An important part of persistence is action—the sort of action I have been talking about; action in making a start; action in keeping on going, even when the going is hard; action in making a new start when one is temporarily defeated.  Action, action, action!  Let that word burn itself into your consciousness until it stands out like the shining sun on a cloudless day.
