God Don’t Make No Junk

As the sign on the wall of a inner-city school reads, “God don’t make no junk.” Each person is capable of achieving excellence in some way, in some area. You have within you, right now, the ability to function at genius or exceptional levels in at least one and perhaps several different areas. Your job is to find out which one.

Successful people look for the good in every situation. They know that it is always there. 

If your beliefs are positive enough, you will seek the valuable lesson in every setback or difficulty. You will confidently believe that there are many lessons that you have to learn on the road to achieving and keeping your ultimate success. You’ll therefore look upon every problem as a learning experience.

Go with the Tide

At different periods the tide of opportunity sets in different directions, according to the needs of the whole, and the particular stage of social evolution which has been reached.

There is abundance of opportunity for the man who will go with the tide, instead of trying to swim against it.

The universe is a great Living Presence, always moving inherently toward more life and fuller functioning. Nature is formed for the advancement of life; its impelling motive is the increase of life. For this cause, everything which can possibly minister to life is bountifully provided; there can be no lack unless God is to contradict himself and nullify his own works.

The outer world of circumstance shapes itself to the inner world of thought, and both pleasant and unpleasant external conditions are factors which make for the ultimate good of the individual. As the reaper of his own harvest, man learns both by suffering and bliss.

Circumstance does not make the man; it reveals him to himself

Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves. 

Even the man whose sole object is to acquire wealth must be prepared to make great personal sacrifices before he can accomplish his object.

James Allen
