FOREWORD

LIFE DOES NOT always run smoothly and many a step taken with the best intentions in the world does not turn out as well as expected. Even under ideal conditions, in the midst of our modern social and economic system, we are faced with problems day after day that call for specific decisions. Some of them involve only minor adjustments, others necessitate drastic changes or complete reversals in habitual behavior. But whatever the need our feelings or emotions of the moment definitely influence our actions and greatly affect our final decisions.

To be able to meet conditions as they arise one must be prepared for them. But unfortunately many an individual is handicapped from the start. Whether it be due to environment, to personal make-up, to conditioned reflexes, to preconceived notions, to lack of self-reliance or to emotional instability, many of us cannot face realistically the every-day problems of life.

We look for a way out and seek to escape the pending changes or the new responsibilities. We try to ignore them, to submerge or to suppress them, and that often marks the beginning of a complex or a neurosis.

The Chinese are great believers in preventive medicine and we, too, may find it advantageous in days to come to utilize the vast resources of modern medical science and mental therapy to keep us physically, mentally and emotionally fit at all times.

This book has two main objectives. 1st. To reach those who are advancing in years and are gradually growing tense, discouraged, easily upset or emotionally disturbed without knowing why. 2nd. Those who are already beset by fears, worries, anxieties, frustrations or mysterious ailments and want to help themselves.

If you belong to the first group this book may help you arrest and prevent emotional disturbances. If you belong to the second it may start you looking for the underlying causes and help you find ways to eliminate them.

But to do any of these things effectively you must “pin-point” the contributory factors, and the way to start is to ask questions of yourself. For instance, why do you think that no one needs you, wants you or is in any way concerned about you? Why are you beset by fears and anxieties which you cannot explain? Why do you feel insecure even in the midst of your immediate family? Why are you troubled by mysterious aches and pains which defy usual medications? Why do you consider yourself inferior or subservient to others?

Do inner conflicts keep you on edge? Do you nurture grudges, resentments or animosities without cause? Are you lonely most of the time? Do you find yourself unable to make or retain friends? Do you feel uncomfortable in the midst of people and would rather be alone? Do you suffer from a feeling of guilt? Are you caught in a grip of misery, of compulsions or obsessions, and see no way out? Have you lost your mate recently and in the midst of your grief feel that life is no longer worth living?

Do you think of yourself as a misfit or a failure? Are you now re-tired but fail to enjoy your leisure hours? Have you become estranged from God and the spiritual uplift of prayer? Do you feel you could still be useful to others and to yourself if only you were shown how and given the chance?

If any of those questions apply to you then this thirty-day guide to happier living can help you, no matter what your age, your sex, your background or your economic status might be.

This guide will show you how to analyze yourself, how to evaluate your promptings and potentials, how to minimize objection-able traits, how to meet minor problems, how to banish fear and worries, how to adjust yourself to the inevitable, how to regain spiritual faith, how to find outlets for self-expression, how to re-build self-confidence, how to develop new interests, how to make friends, and how to get more out of life within the framework of your present age, standing, background and environment.

But none of these projected objectives can be reached by you unless you are sincere in your desire to help yourself and work conscientiously at it. However, do not consider this book as the cure-all for all emotional disturbances, as a panacea for all ills or mal-adjustments or as a magic carpet that will take you to a land of joy, happiness and contentment.

The ideas given cannot transform you into a totally new personality in one day or in thirty days. They cannot eradicate the mistakes of the past, discard the effect of bad habits, ignore the restrictions of your age, discount the limitations of your background or disregard your physical condition. Some of them will have to remain as they are, although improvements can be made.

The material given is intended to show you the way. The simplified, intimate talks are meant to serve as steps leading upward to a richer, fuller, better and happier life. The order of their presentation is not indicative of their importance or relationship. Some are only informatory or explanatory in content and others are specific in their suggestions.

Use them as they apply to your wants and problems. If any of the talks apply specifically to you make them your pivotal point of contact. Combine them with others closely related to the same topic and let them become the center of your activity until the situation is changed and your problem is resolved. Then go on to the next step in your steady climb upward. What is more, if the material given is not enough for your purposes follow it up by further studies through your local library. Your librarian can help you in many ways to supplement a follow-through.

Use this procedure right along and you will benefit immeasurably by it. It will help you to gain a better understanding of your-self, to develop a healthier outlook upon life, to broaden your horizons, to discover newer and better ways for self-expression. It will encourage you to cultivate new friends and enrich your contacts with them. It will foster within you a sense of security, a feeling of pride and accomplishment, the knowledge that you be-long and are an integral part of life around you. That, in turn, will engender within you peace, well-being and contentment.

Thus, in a figurative sense, this book will start you climbing, day by day, step by step and hour after hour, on an imaginary stair-way upward. Each tread in that stairway will bring you closer to the uppermost balcony where the view is glorious, beautiful and unlimited. Each riser in that stairway will introduce you to new concepts, to new vistas and horizons. Each step upward will con-tribute its share toward your ultimate goal, to richer, fuller, better and happier days. In fact, these stairs would become your own private stairway to success and happiness, only thirty space hours away.

Extract from book:

AUTHOR’S PREFACE

IN EVERY chapter of this book, mention has been made of the money-making secret which has made fortunes for more than five hundred exceedingly wealthy men whom I have carefully analyzed over a long period of years.

The secret was brought to my attention by Andrew Carnegie, more than a quarter of a century ago. The canny, lovable old Scotsman carelessly tossed it into my mind, when I was but a boy. Then he sat back in his chair, with a merry twinkle in his eyes, and watched carefully to see if I
had brains enough to understand the full significance of what he had said to me.

When he saw that I had grasped the idea, he asked if I would be willing to spend twenty years or more, preparing myself to take it to the world, to men and women who, without the secret, might go through life as failures. I said I would, and with Mr. Carnegie’s cooperation, I have kept my promise.

This book contains the secret, after having been put to a practical test by thousands of people, in almost every walk of life. It was Mr. Carnegie’s idea that the magic formula, which gave him a stupendous fortune, ought to be placed within reach of people who do not have time to investigate how men make money, and it was his hope that I might test and demonstrate the soundness of the formula through the experience of men and women in every calling. He believed the formula should be taught in all public schools and colleges, and expressed the opinion that if it were properly taught it would so revolutionize the entire educational system that the time spent in school could be reduced to less than half.

His experience with Charles M. Schwab, and other young men of Mr. Schwab’s type, convinced Mr. Carnegie that much of that which is taught in the schools is of no value whatsoever in connection with the business of earning a living or accumulating riches. He had arrived at this decision, because he had taken into his business one young man after another, many of them with but little schooling, and by coaching them in the use of this formula, developed in them rare leadership. Moreover, his coaching made fortunes for everyone of them who followed his instructions.

In the chapter on Faith, you will read the astounding story of the organization of the giant United States Steel Corporation, as it was conceived and carried out by one of the young men through whom Mr. Carnegie proved that his formula will work for all who are ready for it. This single application of the secret, by that young man–Charles M. Schwab–made him a huge fortune in both money and OPPORTUNITY. Roughly speaking, this particular application of the formula was worth six hundred million dollars.

These facts–and they are facts well known to almost everyone who knew Mr. Carnegie–give you a fair idea of what the reading of this book may bring to you, provided you KNOW WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT.

Even before it had undergone twenty years of practical testing, the secret was passed on to more than one hundred thousand men and women who have used it for their personal benefit, as Mr. Carnegie planned that they should. Some have made fortunes with it. Others have used it successfully in creating harmony in their homes. A clergyman used it so effectively that it brought him an income of upwards of $75,000.00 a year.

Arthur Nash, a Cincinnati tailor, used his near-bankrupt business as a “guinea pig” on which to test the formula. The business came to life and made a fortune for its owners. It is still thriving, although Mr. Nash has gone. The experiment was so unique that newspapers and magazines,
gave it more than a million dollars’ worth of laudatory publicity.

The secret was passed on to Stuart Austin Wier, of Dallas, Texas. He was ready for it–so ready that he gave up his profession and studied law. Did he succeed? That story is told too.

I gave the secret to Jennings Randolph, the day he graduated from College, and he has used it so successfully that he is now serving his third term as a Member of Congress, with an excellent opportunity to keep on using it until it carries him to the White House.

While serving as Advertising Manager of the LaSalle Extension University, when it was little more than a name, I had the privilege of seeing J. G. Chapline, President of the University, use the formula so effectively that he has since made the LaSalle one of the great extension schools of the country.

The secret to which I refer has been mentioned no fewer than a hundred times, throughout this book. It has not been directly named, for it seems to work more successfully when it is merely uncovered and left in sight, where THOSE WHO ARE READY, and SEARCHING FOR IT, may pick it up. That is why Mr. Carnegie tossed it to me so quietly, without giving me its
specific name.

If you are READY to put it to use, you will recognize this secret at least once in every chapter. I wish I might feel privileged to tell you how you will know if you are ready, but that would deprive you of much of the benefit you will receive when you make the discovery in your own way.
