    Here’s something to try for the rest of the day. Why, one could even do it for the whole week, the year, or even for your lifetime. Why not give it a go? It will change your life for the better.

    W. Clement Stone began with $100 and turned a small insurance operation into millions of dollars of personal wealth. This method of gaining those millions was based on what you should begin using in your life. Here it is, a simple slogan, that Mr. Stone taught should be repeated to one’s self multiple times a day until it becomes a HABIT.

    “DO THE RIGHT THING BECAUSE IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO!”

    Can you do that for yourself? Repeat it outloud daily when you are alone till it becomes your method of operation. You might like the results. Try it, you will like it.

    Slogans are great, but are useless unless applied in one’s own life. When I first went to college in late 1959, I learned the college slogan. “Recapture True Values.” Sounds great doesn’t it? Well, here’s the thing, to this day I still try my best to apply that slogan. I wonder if you do? It’s not an easy road, but it is worth every effort.
    During the years approx. 1963-1968 I noticed something strange happening. The people at college were changing. The whole attitude was turning away from that slogan. New people had come in and deliberately began to tear that down. They worked internally to destroy the college and the church connected to that college. They did their job. BUT, what they could not do was turn everyone against that slogan. Sadly, what the world sees and hears are all the bad and deliberately distorted stories about the college and church personnel.
    And, on top of that, those characters that came in to destroy also worked to mislead the leaders. And are still at it to this day with their childish websites, and childish accusations.
    Yet, here I am today telling you plainly and clearly that during the years I was at college, the leaders and people I knew personally were striving to live that slogan.
    But, it doesn’t matter what men did, for that was long ago prophesied. What matters is this: What are YOU and I going to do in our personal lives? Why don’t you join me in once again “Recapturing the TRUE Values” and live them? Individual examples are actually even more impressive than what a group does. Peope don’t and can’t always relate to a group as much as to individuals. Try it, you’ll like it.

    Life is exciting! Sometimes in ways one doesn’t want. For instance, read this:

    “The edge of the cliff came rapidly at me! I was sliding like a downhill racer during a ski contest. I could not stop! The thin tree branches snapped in my grasping hands…nothing could stop me. Then, just before reaching the EDGE — BLACKNESS!

    The hills of West Virginia just grabbed me and flung me over a cliff. I never saw how high it was, for I blacked out about a foot or so from the EDGE!. At least, my memory of the event today stops in blackness at that point.

    The next thing I remember is feeling water. I was sitting in a small stream with my left arm resting on a small boulder. As I was coming to, it felt like someone was helping me sit up. But, when I regained full alertness I could see no one was there!

    I don’t remember the fall, or the landing. Just the before and after. I was about six or seven years of age at the time. Often, I’ve wondered what actually happened to me during the BLACKNESS. Maybe, I’ve thought, I had protection.”
