I GENERAL LIFE-PRINCIPLES








Source: Mastery of Self
Category: Chapter I - The Twin-Verses

Magnetism entertains no unnecessary thought of evil concerning

others



It is altogether superior to low-minded revenge



It never reveals personal embarrassment



It permits no show of irritation



It is incapable of losing temper



It refuses to exhibit hostility



It never admits, never discloses, defeat



The magnetic person never shows indifference toward others



Magnetism conceals the feelings of ridicule and contempt



If you are magnetic, you never indulge in violence



You neither look for slights and insults, nor do you feel

them, unless they are persistently thrust upon you



You are invited to resolve upon the increase of your circle of

friends, and never to lose an opportunity of winning a well-

wisher



This means, of course, that you retain every friend secured,

if possible in self-respect--which should not be unduly rigid



The instant recognition of faces and recollection of names is

intensely magnetic



Magnetism ignores all caste distinctions, and is friendly

toward all



If you would be magnetic in personal relations, you must

splendidly believe both in yourself and in other people



The general magnetic attitude is a close compound of the

magnetic thought and the success-thought, buoyant in hope and

courage and bound together by the magnetic will



In the use of this attitude, every obligation should be

regarded as profoundly sacred The magnetic person cannot be

careless in this respect



This book has all along insisted that magnetic success

imperatively demands the life of highest honor



Above all, you are again urged to banish from the inner self

fear, worry, discouragement, depression, and every such enemy to

peace and power There is in your mind an UPPER LEVEL; LIVE IN

THAT When worry and the like appear, you will find them occupying

the lower level and absorbing your attention You should instantly

force consciousness to the higher ground, expelling these enemies

and holding up to the better mood This is the one secret of

victory over the king's foes The author guarantees the remedy in

any case that is not fit for the hospital



In the conduct of life, the magnetic person sets before the

mind a definite goal, either life-long or particular, and adheres

thereto with bulldog pertinacity



And he, therefore, wastes no values, but economizes all



He saves part of his earnings; he carries his money in his

pocket-book, not loosely



But he has the wisdom to recreate, to rest the body, to ease

the mind, to take needed breathing-spells for magnetic increase
