In all man's struggles and attempts at achieving any desired object, there is in reality no necessity at all for him to go in quest of external forces to aid him. Man has within himself vast resources and inherent powers lying untapped or else only partially made use of.
It is because he has allowed his faculties to get scattered on a hundred different things that he fails to achieve anything substantial, despite his inherent potentialities. If he regulates and applies his poten¬tialities intelligently, quick and concrete results will accrue.
