Dream constantly of the ideal;
work ceaselessly to perfect the real.
Believe in yourself;
believe in everybody;
believe in all
that has existence.
Give the body added strength;
give the mind added brilliancy;
give the soul added inspiration.
Do your best under every circumstance,
and believe that every circumstance
will give its best to you.
Live for the realization of more life
and for the more efficient use
of everything that proceeds from life.
Desire eternally what you want;
expect eternally what you desire;
and act always as if every expectation
were coming true.
