There's the story about a skinny, old, shabbily dressed Lawyer who appeared in court to plead a case. He was so shabby that every one felt sorry for him. To inspire confidence, he didn't look like much of a match for the opposing, handsome, young lawyer. Yet the old shabby lawyer won the case.
Why? Everyone wanted to know. The young lawyer was puzzled. He went over to the shabby old lawyer. First he congratulated him, then said, "You and everyone else knows I should have been the one to win this case. Can you tell me how YOU won?"
"Sure I can tell you," the old lawyer said. "You quoted eleven sound arguments. But the jury didn't remember a single one. I quoted only one, but I repeated that one nine times in just slightly different words.. I didn't win that case. The repetition won. Young man, never neglect the power of repetition.
Repetition is Heaven's first law.
Therefore repeat the following wisdom sayings over and over as a daily practice until they become part of you.
Life's royal crown jewels: Health and peace of mind. Treat them royally.
Get your happiness out of your work or you'll never know what happiness is.
Make yourself do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain. Face fears fiercely and they'll flee. He who battles with us strengthens us.
Thinking is creative. Think your tasks as easy: that will make them so.
We never grow old. We get old when we stop growing. Keeping useful keeps us youthful.
Yard by yard, all tasks are hard, inch by inch, they're all a cinch.
Test of true courage: Do you always do what you should do, when it should be done, whether you feel like it or not?
Learn how and do now.
All obstacles are power generators.
The supreme philosophy is fortitude, self mastery.
Daily repeat words of power, strength, courage, self-confidence, success.
Act a part long enough and you will BECOME the part.
New thoughts make you a new man.
Be ye renewed by the re-newing of your mind.
Every day say to your self something good is going to happen to me today.
Do that thing you planned to do; it's later than you think.
Success starts with a dream, a thought; but that's only the first step. Writing it down is the second step. Doing one specific thing to bring it about is the third step.
Everyone of us should find time every day to be alone with them self to meditate, to take stock of them self. In silence great things fashion themselves.
Firmly believe you have reserves of health, energy, strength and endurance and that firm belief will help bring it about.
What is old age? It is a lack of interest. Keep up you interest and you'll never be old.
It takes many people a lifetime to learn that health is more important than money, fun and fame.
Nature's changeless Law "Nothing for Nothing."
Everyone needs a goal to keep him from being distracted by non-essentials.
