You also become conscious of a larger world of thought, thereby increasing your mental capacity as well as placing yourself in position to accomplish something of value.
Big thoughts and big goals always over-rule and over-power the “little things.” You’ve even experienced this in your life. Probably quite a few times.
Have you ever hurt yourself a little and were about to suffer a little and then you noticed someone who really was hurt? You forgot about your little scratch in a micro-second and went and helped with the real injury, right?
Whenever you go after something major — something that completely fills your consciousness — you forget about the trifling matters in your life and concentrate on the things that become important — that get you to your big, juicy goal.

The creative energies of mind find no more difficulty in handling large situations than small ones. Mind is just as much present in the Infinitely large as in the Infinitely small.
That is how you will succeed.
You will succeed because you read great books.
