Before metal can be cast into a desired shape, the mold must first be fashioned; before a building can be erected, the excavation must be constructed and the foundation put in place. Before a person can achieve the kind of life he desires, he must become that kind of individual. He must think, act, talk, walk, and conduct himself in all of his affairs as would the person he wishes to become-in the spirit of a right mental attitude. He is then actually that person, and the things that person would have will naturally come to him.
