Everyone Plus The Subtle Prin

ciple of Success Equals

Supreme Success TH

HIS SUBTLE PRINCIPLE in my hands, without education, without capital, with

out training, without experience, and without study or waste of time and without health, vitality or will power has given me the power to earn more than a million dollars without selling merchandise, stocks, bonds, books, drugs, appliances, or any material thing of any character.

This subtle and basic principle of success requires no will power, no exercise, .no strength, no energy, no study, no writing, no dieting, no concentration, and no conscious deep breathing. There is nothing to practice, nothing to study, and nothing to sell.

This subtle and basic principle of success does not require that you practice economy or keep records, or memorize, or read, or learn, or force yourself into any action or invest in any stocks, bonds, books, or merchandise.

The subtle principle must not be confused with Metaphysics, Psychology, New Thought, Christian Science, arbitrary optimism, inspiration or faith.

No one has yet succeeded in gaining success without it.

No one has ever succeeded in failing with it.

It is absolutely the master key to success, prosperity and supremacy.

My True and Actual Experience When I was eighteen years of age, it looked to me as though I had absolutely no chance to succeed. Fifteen months altogether in common public school was the extent of my education. I had no money. When my father died, he left me twenty dollars and fifty cents, and I was earning hardly enough to keep myself alive. I had no friends for I was negative and of no advantage to any one. I had no plan of life to help me solve any problem. In fact, I did not know enough to know that life is and was a real problem, even though I had an “acute problem of life" on my hands. I was blue and despondent and thoughts of eternal misery arose in my mind constantly. I was a living and walking worry machine.

I was tired, nervous, restless. I could not sleep. I could not digest without distress. I had no power of application. Nothing appealed to me. Nothing appeared worth doing from the fear that I could not do anything because of my poor equip

ment of mind and body. I felt that I was shut out of the world of success and I lived in a world of failure.

I was such a pauper in spirit that I blindly depended on drugs and doctors for my health, as

my father before me. I was a “floater" and depended on luck for success. The result of this attitude on my part was greater weakness, sickness, failure, and misery as is always the case under similar conditions.

Gradually my condition became worse. I reached a degree of misery that seemed intolerable. I reached a crisis in my realization of my failure and adverse condition.

Out of this misery and failure and pauperism of spirit-out of this distress -arose within me a desperate reaction -"a final effort to live"-and through this reaction, arose within me, the discovery of the laws and principles of life, evolution, personality, mind, health, success and supremacy. Also out of this misery arose within me, the discovery of the inevitable laws and principles of failure and sickness and inferiority,

When I discovered that I had unconsciously been employing the principles of failure and sickness, I immediately began to use the principles of success and supremacy. My life underwent an almost

immediate change. I overcame illness through health, weakness through power, inferior evolution by superior evolution, failure by success, and converted pauperism into supremacy.

I discovered a principle which I observed that all successful personalities employ, either consciously or unconsciously. I had but one disease -failure, and therefore there was but one curesuccess, and I began to use this principle and out of its use arose my ambition, my powers, my education, my health, my success, and my supremacy, etc., etc.

You may also use this principle of success deliberately, purposefully, consciously, and profitably.

Just as there is a principle of darkness, there is also a principle of failure, ill health, weakness and negativeness. If you use the principle of failure consciously or unconsciously, you sure always to be a failure. Why seek success and supremacy through blindly seeking to find your path through the maze of difficulties? Why not open your "mental eyes” through the use of this subtle success principle, and thus deliberately
