26. POSSESSION OF POWER THAT WAS NOT ACQUIRED THROUGH
SELF EFFORT. (Sons and daughters of wealthy men, and others who inherit
money which they did not earn). Power in the hands of one who did not
acquire it gradually, is often fatal to success. QUICK RICHES are more
dangerous than poverty.

27. INTENTIONAL DISHONESTY. There is no substitute for honesty. One
may be temporarily dishonest by force of circumstances over which one has
no control, without permanent damage. But, there is NO HOPE for the person
who is dishonest by choice. Sooner or later, his deeds will catch up with him,
and he will pay by loss of reputation, and perhaps even loss of liberty.

28. EGOTISM AND VANITY. These qualities serve as red lights which
warn others to keep away. THEY ARE FATAL TO SUCCESS.

29. GUESSING INSTEAD OF THINKING. Most people are too indifferent
or lazy to acquire FACTS with which to THINK ACCURATELY. They
prefer to act on "opinions" created by guesswork or snap-judgments.

30. LACK OF CAPITAL. This is a common cause of failure among those
who start out in business for the first time, without sufficient reserve of
capital to absorb the shock of their mistakes, and to carry them over until they
have established a REPUTATION.

31. Under this, name any particular cause of failure from which you have
suffered that has not been included in the foregoing list.

In these thirty major causes of failure is found a description of the tragedy of
life, which obtains for practically every person who tries and fails. It will be
helpful if you can induce someone who knows you well to go over this list
with you, and help to analyze you by the thirty causes of failure. It may be
beneficial if you try this alone. Most people cannot see themselves as others
see them. You may be one who cannot.

The oldest of admonitions is "Man, know thyself!" If you market
merchandise successfully, you must know the merchandise. The same is true
in marketing personal services. You should know all of your weaknesses in

order that you may either bridge them or eliminate them entirely. You should
know your strength in order that you may call attention to it when selling
your services. You can know yourself only through accurate analysis.

The folly of ignorance in connection with self was displayed by a young man
who applied to the manager of a well known business for a position. He made
a very good impression until the manager asked him what salary he expected.
He replied that he had no fixed sum in mind (lack of a definite aim). The
manager then said, "We will pay you all you are worth, after we try you out
for a week."

I will not accept it," the applicant replied, "because I AM GETTING MORE
THAN THAT WHERE I AM NOW EMPLOYED."

Before you even start to negotiate for a readjustment of your salary in your
present position, or to seek employment elsewhere, BE SURE THAT YOU
ARE WORTH MORE THAN YOU NOW RECEIVE.

It is one thing to WANT money—everyone wants more—but it is something
entirely different to be WORTH MORE! Many people mistake their WANTS
for their JUST DUES. Your financial requirements or wants have nothing
whatever to do with your WORTH. Your value is established entirely by your
ability to render useful service or your capacity to induce others to render
such service.


TAKE INVENTORY OF YOURSELF,
28 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ANSWER


Annual self-analysis is an essential in the effective marketing of personal
services, as is annual inventory in merchandising. Moreover, the yearly
analysis should disclose a DECREASE IN FAULTS, and an increase in
VIRTUES. One goes ahead, stands still, or goes backward in life. One's
object should be, of course, to go ahead. Annual self analysis will disclose
whether advancement has been made, and if so, how much. It will also
disclose any backward steps one may have made. The effective marketing of
personal services requires one to move forward even if the progress is slow.

The Master Key is intangible, but it is powerful! It is the privilege of
creating, in your own mind, a BURNING DESIRE for a definite form of
riches. There is no penalty for the use of the Key, but there is a price you
must pay if you do not use it. The price is FAILURE. There is a reward of
stupendous proportions if you put the Key to use. It is the satisfaction that
comes to all who conquer self and force Life to pay whatever is asked.

The reward is worthy of your effort. Will you make the start and be
convinced?

"If we are related," said the immortal Emerson, "we shall meet." In closing,
may I borrow his thought, and say, "If we are related, we have, through these
pages, met."
