Excerpt from Pacific Service Magazine, Vol. 13: June, 1921
Most of the men I have known who have stood still or have fallen down have been a good deal like this young lawyer. They thought they lacked ability or opportunity, when the real trouble was simply that they did not recognize the form that Opportunity was taking for them.
Opportunity has been present to prae tically all of them - to all, I think, who have had passable health. It has been there in the form of something a little beyond the absolute requirements of their job; something for which they thought they did not have time, or which did not seem to be their business, or which they did not feel competent to do. They failed to study up on some phase of their work; or they neglected to do anything about some good idea that occurred to them. A few things like that - and they were static. They were not making any headway.
