In 1926 R H Jarrett (RHJ) published:
"The Famous Little Red Book That Makes Your Dreams Come True"
and therein Jarrett wrote:
"What is the real secret of obtaining desirable possessions?"
"Are some people born under a lucky star or other charm which enables them to have all that which seems so desirable,
and if not, what is the cause of the difference in conditions under which men live?"
"Many years ago, feeling that there must be a logical answer to this question, I decided to find out, if possible, what it was.
I found the answer to my own satisfaction, and for years, have given the information to others who have used it successfully."
And thus it was, that Jarrett presented his "Concise, Definite, Resultful Plan with Rules,
Explanations and Suggestions for bettering your condition in life"
(The original Secret of Success)
Describing his Plan, Jarrett said:
"You have within you a mighty power, anxious and willing to serve you,
a power capable of giving you that which you earnestly desire..."
"The Power is capable and willing to carry to a complete and perfect conclusion very earnest desire of your objective mind,
but you must be really in earnest about what you want."
"Occasional wishing or half-hearted wanting does not form a perfect connection or communication with your omnipotent power.
You must be in earnest, sincerely and truthfully desiring certain conditions or things, mental, physical or spiritual."
