309 At the end of the year Ford checked with his engineers, and again they informed
310 him they had found no way to carry out his orders.
311 "Go right ahead," said Ford, "I want it, and I'll have it." They went ahead, and
312 then, as if by a stroke of magic, the secret was discovered.
313 The Ford DETERMINATION had won once more!
314 This story may not be described with minute accuracy, but the sum and
315 substance of it is correct. Deduce from it, you who wish to THINK AND
316 GROW RICH, the secret of the Ford millions, if you can. You'll not have to
317 look very far. Henry Ford is a success, because he understands, and applies the
318 principles of success. One of these is DESIRE: knowing what one wants.
319 Remember this Ford story as you read, and pick out the lines in which the secret
320 of his stupendous achievement have been described. If you can do this, if you
321 can lay your finger on the particular group of principles which made Henry Ford
322 rich, you can equal his achievements in almost any calling for which you are
323 suited.
325 SOUL"
326 When Henley wrote the prophetic lines, "I am the Master of my Fate, I am the
327 Captain of my Soul," he should have informed us that we are the Masters of our
328 Fate, the Captains of our Souls, because we have the power to control our
329 thoughts.
330 He should have told us that the ether in which this little earth floats, in which we
331 move and have our being, is a form of energy moving at an inconceivably high
332 rate of vibration, and that the ether is filled with a form of universal power which
333 ADAPTS itself to the nature of the thoughts we hold in our minds; and
334 INFLUENCES us, in natural ways, to transmute our thoughts into their physical
335 equivalent.
