CHAPTER 6

Achieving Your Goals

Nothing is impossible, unless you think it is.

The Value of Enthusiasm – 1

Work of any kind, if done in the right spirit, gives you victory over yourself….The attitude with which you work is what counts. Mental laziness and working unwillingly spoil one. People often ask me, “How do you do so many things?” It is because I do everything with the greatest pleasure and spirit of service. Inwardly I am all the time with God. And though I sleep very little I always feel fresh, because I perform my duties with the right attitude: that it is a privilege to serve.

Mental unwillingness to work is accompanied by listlessness and lack of energy. Enthusiasm and willingness go hand in hand with freh supplies of energy. From these facts we can see the subtle relationship between will and energy. The greater the will, the more inexhaustible the energy.

******

If your work in life is humble, do not apologize for it. Be proud because you are fulfilling the duty given you by the Father. He needs you in your particular place, all people cannot play the same role. So long as you work to please God, all cosmic forces will harmoniously assist you.
