The greatest day in any individual's life is when he begins for the first time to realize himself. If happened to a college student friend of mine once with dramatic suddenness. He was as unsuccessful in his studies as he was efficient upon the athletic field. It happened to a college student friend of mine once with dramatic suddenness. He was as unsuccessful in his studies as he was efficient upon the athletic field. Destiny, however, has it own strange ways. One day in a class in Psychology, our student friend suddenly become enthralled as the professor described how the average man fails because he does not learn to control and consolidate his powers. He used the familiar illustration of the burning glass. The rays of the sun, failing upon a piece of paper, have little effect. Let them, however, be drawn by the burning glass to a focus and they create an intense heat which will quickly burn a hole in the paper. The professor pointed out that the man who succeeds is the one who can draw his dissipated and therefore futile powers to a focus. Our student said that in a flashing illumination he saw the cause of this own failure and oblivious of all in the room and under the spell of a veritable new birth leaped to his feet, crying, "I see it; I see it" What had happened? He had met himself, a new self, his real self, which he never before had had seen and the revelation changed him form from a failure to a potential success, the possibilities of which were later abundantly realized. He was now a grand success in whatever he chose to do. In this famous address on "The Energies of Men" William James, a great psychologist, said, "Men habitually use only a small part of the powers which they possess and which they might use under appropriate circumstances." A scientist is reported recently to have said that the average man uses but twenty per cent of his brain power. When you think o some people, that sounds like optimism. Think of it-you are using, if you are an average person, only one fifth of your mental capacity. Consider what you could make of life if you increased that by only fifty per cent. In the personality of every individual there is a greatest reservoir of unused power. But in many of us just a miserable little trickle is getting through, and on that we live and do our work. The great secret of life is to put a key into the lock, turn back the sluice gates and let that power, like a terrific stream, flow into your mind and personality. It will transform you into a person of strength and effectiveness, we able to meet and master all circumstances. The important thing to emphasize is that it is a source of inward power by which weak personalities can become strong; divided personalities can become unified; hurt minds can be healed; and the secret of peace and poise attained.
