When your mind is well controlled, outside circumstances are powerless to enslave or discourage you.

Your current circumstances in life provide the opportunity to develop patience, concentration, and power. The way you handle today’s trials, tribulations, and responsibilities is an unmistakable indicator of how you will handle more favorable opportunities as you move through life.

The cheerful and honest fulfillment of your current duties is the only way to improve yourself and gain greater personal power. The qualities and abilities needed to achieve great things are first developed by accomplishing small things.

Fully dedicate yourself to your current responsibilities, and life will rapidly reveal your greater possibilities.
