Free July 2020 Desk Calendar: -It is not true, as many American books on success teach, that any man can do anything if he possesses unbeatable self-confidence. A privet bush cannot be oak, but it can be, in the right soil, an exceptionally fine privet bush. One musician is fitted by nature to be the leader of an orchestra, while another is fitted to play second fiddle. Every man has his limitations, but he does not know what they are until he has put himself to the test. Usually, a young man marries before he has discovered his own exceptional abilities. He is probably in a job that does not suit him. The responsibilities of marriage compel him to remain where he is unless he has an ambitious wife who cheers him on to take chances. He is likely to play safe—to say “half a loaf is better than no bread”. This timid slogan has shut the doors of advancement against tens of thousands of young men. And, they make a small success instead of a big one, or no success at all. Many a young man, usually for some temperamental reason, makes a bad start when he leaves school. He may proceed to “sow his wild oats” or he may lack ambition. If his father was wealthy, he may have been spoiled by having too much money to spend; or if his father was poor, he may lack self-confidence and initiative. Both wealth or poverty can be a bad handicap to a young man. Either may influence him to neglect the development of his own brain.

One of the most useful purposes of July 2020 Calendars is to enable a man to create an environment that suits him. He can then have his own kind of home, quite different, possibly, from a standardized house. He can have it where he wants it. He can make his home a meeting place for the people whom he wants to meet. He can create, in a way, not only an inner self but an outer self as well. In all the details of living, he can specialize in the things that suit and strengthen his outstanding aptitudes. That is one of the greatest benefits that wealth can confer on any man. The struggle of life is the struggle to become distinctive in some way that helps us. Those who are “the fittest to survive” are those who develop distinctive powers to serve their fellow-beings. That is why a man must keenly search for his own kind of knowledge and his own kind of people. In whatever he does, he must play up to his strong point.
As far as he can, a man should live his own life. The most important thing to him is himself. He must cater and
conform to a certain degree, as he must serve others; but he must seize any opportunity to develop along his own line. He must not be pushed too far off his own track. Life has its obligations, but in Great Britain and a number of other countries, it has an element of liberty as well. Mr. H.G. Wells, in the first volume of his Autobiography, makes the plaint that he has not had enough chance to develop his own distinctive powers and do his own work. “I do not now in the least desire to live longer,” he says, “unless I can go on with what I consider to be my proper business.” This complaint, coming from a man who has apparently, during his whole life, done and said whatever pleased him, is very striking. It shows that even Wells has been interfered with and pushed about. It is no easy matter to plan one’s life and to hold fast to the plan. But the point to remember is that it is desirable and possible. Thousands have done it and their names are in the Encyclopaedia. They did what they were best fitted to do, what they wanted to do. They made themselves unique and of high value. However much a nation may try to coerce people into uniformity when it erects statues, it erects them to the men who dared to live their own lives.
It is much better, in this stage of specialization, for a man to have fairly complete knowledge of one job or one
subject, than to have a smattering of a dozen things. He can be in the first class in one thing. If he is the best stoker in
his town, he will never be unemployed. If he is the best writer of headlines in England, he can reach a four-figure salary. If he is the best jockey, he can become both famous and rich. There are fewer all-round men in the business world today than there were thirty years ago. Why? Because business has split up into several hundred professions. Almost every job has developed a technique of its own. The head of every large company is compelled to call in specialists to aid him in his task of management. Consequently, as every man has a more or less specialized brain, he must find out the one job that he is best fitted to do.
