The Great Dynamic Forces - Page 1

YOU have noticed the successful and strong people in any walk of life. You are conscious of the characteristics of them. Let us take a look at the matter.

Burton and McLeod said: "The longer I live, the more certain I am that the great difference between people, the powerful, the great, is energy and invincible determination - a purpose once fixed and then only Victory accepted. That quality will do anything that can be done in this world - and no talents, no circumstances, no opportunities will make a two-legged creature a human without it." This is the most clear expression of this idea I know of. He has put his finger right in the center of the subject - his eye has seen into the heart of it.

Energy and invincible determination - these two things will guarantee success. And yet they must be used together. Energy with determination will go to great benefit. Some people have plenty of energy - they are full to overflowing with it; and they have concentration - they have the concentrated force that enables them to bring their power to bear upon the right spot. Energy is plentiful. I can look around me at any time, and pick out a number of people I know who are full of energy - many of them are energy plus - they do seem to make headway. They are making good use of their energy all the time. They stick to one thing. They will take up some substantial thing of real interest or importance, and invest enough energy and force to carry them through a hard day's work, and when they are through, something has been accomplished.

Some who have plenty of energy, direct it by the power of the Will toward the desired end. "Invincible determination" - those are the words. Do they not thrill you with their power? If you have something to do, get to work and do it.
