This book is your personal "do it yourself" construction kit. You are to use it to build for yourself a richer, fuller life. This is the greatest construction job which you will ever have the opportunity to under­take—building your own life. Your life is what you make it.

<>For most of us, the task of life construction involves considerable reconstruction. Before we can build a solid structure, we must first clear away the debris of old ideas and habits. That is where this book comes in. It contains the tools by which you change your conscious­ness, and therefore your life, from negative to positive. When this is done, there is no limit to the power, and the joy of your constructive living.


This book contains 31 vital chapters—one for each day of the month—each one covering an important area of your life, and con­tains constructive techniques for strengthening each one. Here is the way to use these valuable tools:

1. Read this book completely through to get an over—all grasp of its subject matter. For this first reading, don't study it; just enjoy it.

2. Now you are ready to use the tools in this book for constructive life—building purposes. The first step: Read a chapter a day each day of the month, each month for one year. When you finish the first month, start back at the beginning, and go through it again, studying the references and practicing the techniques given for each day. There is ample material given for an entire year's pro­gram of constructive life—building activity. Have fun doing it. Living is fun! Don't resist it. Enjoy it!

3. This book will be your constant companion for the next year, so make friends with it. Be good to it by using it. It will be good to you by helping you become the person that you want to be. Let your mind absorb the constructive ideas in each chapter. This book is really a collection of affirmative ideas. In your tools for each day you will find quotations from the world's great idealists and optimists, including many affirmative statements from the Bible, as well as excerpts from inspiring poems which will lift your spirit to new heights.

In addition, you will find many references to the author's two previous books, Your Thoughts Can Change Your Life, and Human Problems and How To Solve Them, both indispensable guidebooks to joyful living. They each contain numerous tech­niques for developing the affirmative approach. Refer to these books. Along with this one, they will change your life.

4. At the end of each chapter you will find a GOLDEN BRIDGE to span each day: the first part to project your constructive consciousness ahead each morning, and the second to help you review your day before retiring each night. The use of the GOLDEN BRIDGE FOR EACH DAY is an integral part of the joyful living plan for which this book provides the blueprint. This technique is described fully in Chapter One.

One word of reminder—these techniques will help you to the exact degree that you use them. To make them work you must work them. Just follow these instructions.

5. At the back of the book you will find 366 Constructive Daily Thoughts (one for each day of the year, including Leap Year). Memorize the appropriate thought each morning and repeat it frequently throughout the day. It will keep you on the upward path.

6. Give a copy of this book to at least one person each month. In this way you will be sharing your good with others. It will come back to you many times, because when you give to them and they give to others, the accumulated good is totally active in the life of each individual who is using this approach to the more joyful life.

7. Follow these instructions for one month, and you will be an en­tirely different person. Live by these suggestions faithfully for one year and you will become the person you want to be. You are the builder. Let's go!
