Nicholas Dixon

By Nicholas Dixon

Life can hold nothing but failure for the ill natured,
unsociable, disgusting tramp who is known to be ignorant, lazy, shiftless, a
spendthrift, a liar, and an all around crook. Such a worthless
man will make a complete failure of life because he is so disqualified
to succeed.

On the other hand certain success ought to be achieved by the
good-natured, intelligent, reliable man who continually wins
friends; the truthful man who has a fine reputation for thrift, honesty,
neatness, and love for his work. He seems entirely worthy of
success. Yet for reasons that baffle himself and his friends it sometimes
happens that such a man is unsuccessful.

The defeat in life of one who appears so deserving of victory
seems to prove that success cannot be assured by the development of
individual characteristics and by doing specific things. But such a wholly
negative conclusion would be wrong. When a worthy man fails, he loses out
because he lacks an essential positive factor of certain success--the
ability to sell his capabilities. By mastering the selling process this
failure can turn himself into a success.

We are sure of the failure of the man who is utterly
disqualified to succeed; not because he has particular faults, but because they
self-advertise and sell the idea of his disqualifications for
success. His characteristics and actions make on our minds an impression
of his general worthlessness. Defects are apt to attract attention,
while perfection often passes unnoticed.

Millions of worthy men, otherwise qualified for success, have
failed solely because their merits were not appreciated and rewarded as
they would have been if recognized. Capabilities, like goods, are
profitless until they are sold. Therefore the man who deserves
to win out in life can make his victory sure only by learning and
practicing with skill the certain success methods of the master

Down through all the ages has come the duty to succeed. It was
enjoined in the Parable of the Talents. No one has the right to
do less than his best. Then only can he claim full justification for his
existence. The Creator accepts no excuses for failure. Every
personal quality, and every opportunity to succeed that a man has, must
be used, to entitle him to the rewards of success. He owes not only to
himself and to his fellows, but also to God, the obligation of
developing his utmost capability. If he does not pay dividends on the divine
investment in him, his dereliction is justly punished by failure
in life. Sometimes he even forfeits the right to live.
