Earl Nightingale defines success as “the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”

All achievements, all earned riches, have their beginning in an ideal.

Psychologists have said that “When one is truly ready for a thing, it puts in its appearance.”

When the opportunity arises in a different form or direction than expected, are you prepared to still recognize the opportunity? Even if it comes in from a temporary setback, misfortune, or defect?

Are you ready, or aware, of the fact that you can acquire the asset of definite knowledge that the intangible impulse of thought can be transmuted into material rewards by the application of known principles?

Have you ever thought of a particular result or outcome? You had “nothing” to start with except the capacity to know precisely what you wanted, and then you had the determination to stand by that desire until it was realized.

Was the result a positive outcome or a negative one? Because the principle works both ways.

Energy comes from desire.
