What a time we would have if we had plenty of money. Our life almost depends upon money... In nearly all of the dramas of life money takes an important part.
Of course if we could only become millionaires we would assume a very important air, we would travel extensively, talk of the wonderful paintings we had seen and visit "ye shop" and buy old broken spinning wheels, rag rugs, etc.
What a life for sports. Midnight golf, go fox hunting, entertain the Prince of Wales, etc. We would go South with the smart set and spend plenty of time getting a nice tan. With money we would soften some picture producer's heart and get him to star us in a screen hit. We would be very attractive dressed in the latest Paris styles. We would have a wonderful romance and marry happily.

Someone once said, "There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is God's finger on a man's shoulder." I have heard many of you say that you love your work. I believe you do. Do you love your dealers? You should. If you love, you will be loved.
You will be living your philosophy, also, not just talking about it. And the most amazing thing of all is that you will find developing within yourself an inner power than you little realize you possess. The more you use this power to love, the more it will grow. Life will take on new meaning. You will become more approachable. And you will understand why all people want to be truly loved and not just tolerated.
To be able to love and to understand are beautiful attributes. They are worth developing, both to make you successful managers and successful people.

A person must have a wonderful never-failing faith in himself in order to succeed. No matter how many times his best efforts seem to fail.
He must always say to himself, "people don't realize what I have to offer and appreciate me, someday they will." One must not stop there. He must keep on trying until recognized and until attainment of success. That proves that he was right. But if he doesn't keep on and succeed, then the people were right.
One should not be afraid to look far, far, into the future and visualize the things that might be.
Remember, the things which are so common place today -- would have been the ravings of a fanatic a few years ago.
