I will use my creative thinking ability to gain success in every worth-while project that I undertake. I will help myself that I may bring into proper use all my God-given powers. God will help me if I help myself, praying to Him to help me to bring success to my efforts.
I buried dead disappointments in the cemeteries of yesterday. Today I will plow the garden of life with my new creative efforts. Therein I will sow seeds of wisdom, health, prosperity, and happiness. I will water them with self-confidence and faith, and will wait for the Divine to give me my much-needed harvest.
If I reap not the harvest, I will be thankful for the satisfaction of having tried my best, and I will thank God that I am not crippled, but able to try again and again until with His help I do succeed. I will thank Him when I succeed in fulfilling my heart’s worthy desire.
