Of all that Wallace D. Wattles wrote, there's one passage I refer to more than all the others combined. I quote from it on The Science of Abundant Life website, I close The Science of Abundant Life ebook with it, and I've quoted it or from it in my replies to hundreds of questions. It forms the very "core" of my personal philosophy.
Here it is...
"Have perfect faith in yourself and in your ability to cope with any combination of circumstances that may arise. Do not be disturbed if you are alone; if you need friends they will come to you at the right time. Do not be disturbed if you feel that you are ignorant; the information that you need will be furnished you when it is time for you to have it. That which is in you impelling you forward is in the things and people you need, impelling them toward you. If there is a particular man you need to know, he will be introduced to you; if there is a particular book you need to read it will be placed in your hands at the right time. All the knowledge you need will come to you from both external and internal sources. Your information and your talents will always be equal to the requirements of the occasion. Remember that Jesus told his disciples not to worry as to what they would say when brought before the judges; he knew that the power in them would be sufficient for the needs of the hour."
