Remember, no more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty. A great poet has correctly stated this universal truth through these lines:
I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay me no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.
~ Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich (1937)
