A Quote by Loyd J. Ericson on achievement, christ, circumstances, clarity, desires, direction, feeling, goals, god, growth, heart, idealism, improvement, men, mind, simplicity, understanding, and world

To resolve an issue of improvement of circumstances - to nurture positive growth - the first step is to clearly define and state it in as simple terms as possible. The more concise and clear one's goal is stated - an ideal he desires to achieve - the better he can focus thoughts upon its essentials. One must go beyond what he already understands, by projecting his mind and the feelings of his heart into hitherto unknown areas; and, call upon God for new light upon which to proceed. Such internal direction is available to all persons, because the light of Christ, "was the light of men . . . which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." John 1:4, 9
