Self-Confidence Formula | Think and Grow Rich

FIRST: I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my
definite purpose in life; therefore, I demand of myself persistent,
continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to
render such action.

SECOND: I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually
reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually
transform themselves into physical reality; therefore, I will
concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily, upon the task of
thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind
a clear mental picture.

THIRD: I know through the principle of autosuggestion, any desire
that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression
through some practical means of attaining the object back of it;
therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the
development of self-confidence.

FOURTH: I have clearly written down a description of my definite
chief aim in life, and I will never stop trying, until I shall have
developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.

FIFTH: I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure,
unless built upon truth and justice; therefore, I will engage in no
transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will
succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the
cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me,
because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred,
envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all
humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can
never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because
I will believe in them, and in myself. I will sign my name to this
formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day, with
full faith that it will gradually influence my thoughts and actions so
that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.
