 Book Excerpts:

         Chapter 1:

What Desires Can You Make Come True?

Every desire is the heart of some Ideal. Your desires always come true. Your wishes seldom do; they die by consuming themselves in forever wishing wishes. A desire with a body or an Ideal with a heart always becomes a reality! Every desire is the heart center of some Ideal that is either revealed to consciousness and understood or hidden in the ultra-consciousness and misunderstood. The Ideal is the active body of the desire. Do not expect your desire to come true unless you give it a body. Construct an Ideal that gives substance to each desire. Make the Ideal active; endow it with the process of attainment. Then, it will become a reality! It will come true!

But an “idea” is not an “Ideal”! That is where your trouble often lies! Only a few - a very, very few - of your ideas ever come true. And very, very few of your thoughts and plans ever materialize if they are made up of ideas instead of Ideals. An Ideal always manifests itself in action and becomes a reality. Unless it does so, it is not an Ideal.

Page 26:

An idea is not perfect; it is but a partial image, and lacking that something which is essential, seldom comes true. Usually the element an idea lacks is the very element that, if the idea possessed it, would make the idea manifest as a reality.

Change your ideas into Ideals and they will become realities……

       “If you greatly desire something,
have the guts to stake everything on obtaining it.”

“For years I have taken classes and read books about identifying what you desire and how to have it. It seemed like it didn’t matter what I did or did not do, my results were always the same and disappointing. When I read through this book the first time, I felt something inside, like a deeper awareness of the answer I was seeking. Then I read it a second time and began to see the difference between my ideas and my Ideals…….

Chapter 6:

The Only Three Activities Necessary

     First, there is the Ideal of Something Desired; Second, the Process that Leads to Attaining It; and Third, the Act of Making the Reality Yours.…

These are the three basic activities of attaining that which you desire; they are the only ones which have been and can be successfully used in attaining any quality or degree of development within yourself or in obtaining any thing, condition or position in society or the world about you. These three activities are simply stated because they are true, not because I write them. Basic truths are always simple; and, if not enveloped in a mass of superfluous words or intertwined with a web of entangled thoughts, they are always easily understood. When simply stated and easily understood, it is easy to apply them.

If you permit your Ideal to be lost in a jungle of many words and your process to be misdirected by a multitude of varying thoughts and feelings, each pointing in a different direction, why, then, of course, your Ideal will not and cannot become a reality. Unless you can clearly and definitely state your Ideal, it is not sufficiently concrete to make any process of attaining it successful. Unless you can definitely and simply state what you are to do and how you are to do it, your plan of the process of attaining or obtaining that which you want will be confused and your effort will be partly wasted and probably unsuccessful.

Powerful Testimonials, review on by Paula Traverse: "So many people have republished this title from its original author, but no one has taken the time to do what this author did. So many authors speak only from their own experience, and while that is great Ms. Davenport submitted the draft to a number of people to have the theory challenged in today's times and then included these personalized and detailed testimonials in the book. And to add validity to these testimonials the email address of the person giving the testimonial is included. I especially appreciate how the testimonials detail the original problem and how the person solves the problem using what they learned in the book. These testimonials are more than just flattery of having read the book or knowing the author; these testimonials are just as powerful and helpful as the authors' words. The testimonials give light as to how to apply the information in the book, and the possibility of the results that could be achieved by others, because of the results already received. Landone was a miraculous man and he made substantial contributions to new thought and self healing at a time when it was still considered blasphemous to do so. As a educated medical doctor and also educated in the sciences and also had a Doctor of Divinity degree. His words and lessons are a combination of his education and his experience. This information was priceless in his time, and still are the profound answer to why some people have what they say they want in life and others don't. Kudos to Sumner Davenport for taking this information and setting it to the test of modern day. If you can't find the answer in Landone's explanation, it just may be explained in greater specifics in one of the testimonials."
