The purpose of this book is a very direct and simple one: to help young people find themselves and live happy and effective lives. It is published in response to the suggestion often heard that nothing could happen to a person of greater good fortune than to master the positive thinking technique early in life. Why learn it the hard way after years of failure and unhappiness? How I wish I had learned the creative and dynamic law of positive thinking in my teens! It would have saved me heartaches and prevented failures. I have selected from many incidents in the lives of people whom I have known, anecdotes and experiences particularly applicable to youthful readers, that they may realize that the same disturbing dilemmas that they face also occur in the lives of others. This book is a practical, direct-action, personal-improvement manual. It is written with the sole purpose of helping the readers live happy, satisfying, worthwhile lives.
