“AS LONG AS MEN’S MIND ARE FREE TO LEARN, THERE IS NO LIMIT TO WHAT ONE CAN BE TAUGHT.” -- Dr. Wallace Gordon, E.I. Dupont Co.
Our mind is not a container to be filled, It is a fire to be fueled. Note that our minds must be FREE to learn. Yes, there are barriers to learning, and one of these is too much entertainment. Limit your entertainment and social life.
The story of Dupont is one of the fabulous success stories of all time. From man-made fibers for modern living to atomic developments for industrial progress, Dupont’s scientists believe that you, too, can learn -- as long as your mind is open to new knowledge, to new truths.
2. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT. The testimony of every scientist is that the frontiers opening out before us today are far wider and more challenging than any frontiers of the world in the past. We are going to see greater developments here than ever before -- Eric Johnston.
Yes, there are wider and more challenging frontiers in every field of human activity; the Internet, computers, electronics, engineering, energy, the environment, communication, transportation, mass media, construction, the human factor, etc.
And frontiers, and problems mean opportunities, as they always have in the past. Opportunities for men and women with ideas, ambition, industry and determination -- men and women who have the vision to see those opportunities, and the ambition and determination to prepare themselves to take advantage of them.
3.ASK GOD FOR WISDOM & UNDERSTANDING
- IF ANY OF YOU LACKS WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO HIM. (James 1:5 MKJV)
Then proceed to get what is needed to accomplish that purpose. . . Information . . . Training. . . Experience.
In 1837 there was a young fellow named JOHN DEERE... a blacksmith. He saw a human need and thought how he could serve it. Many farm lands had sticky soil that stuck to the plows and made plowing difficult. Deere concentrated all his efforts on making a self-polishing plow.Today Deere and Company is a billion dollar corporation...“Big business.”
Yet it all started with a young man who concentrated all his efforts on what he could contribute...instead of thinking about how much money he could make. During one of their annual report, the company had John Deere’s picture with the inscription -- “He GAVE the world the steel plow.”
How about us? You and Me?
Can you give something good to the world? This a great challenge and opportunity for each one of us.
All this happened to young Deere because he had an idea... and he concentrated.
You have an idea. You want to get ahead...you can get ahead!. Add to that idea, concentration...and nothing can stop you!
Realizing your great potential...Knowing what you want... and concentrating your thoughts on it...is a powerful magnet that attracts to you the very things you need to accomplish your purpose.
You will be amazed how essential information will gravitate to you...how ideas will develop...how opportunities will open up.
Start now to mine your treasure field and make your nation, and the world, and yourselves a great success!
Let your mind be fired up!
In your decision to “do something” to do what you want, add to your fund of knowledge through some systematic study, then you are “well begun.”
And if you will persist in this determination, diligently studying one subject after another, one day, not too far in the future, you’ll “BE DONE.”
