HOW TO IMPROVE

The prerequisite for all true improvement is one's earnest desire for spiritual betterment and willingness to work for it. On page 545 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," in interpreting a Bible verse, Mary Baker Eddy writes, "The condemnation of mortals to till the ground means this,—that mortals should so improve material belief by thought tending spiritually upward as to destroy materiality."

In an article in "Miscellaneous Writings" entitled "Improve Your Time," Mrs. Eddy stresses points indispensable to all improvement. The opening paragraph reads (p. 230): "Success in life depends upon persistent effort, upon the improvement of moments more than upon any other one thing. A great amount of time is consumed in talking nothing, doing nothing, and indecision as to what one should do. If one would be successful in the future, let him make the most of the present."
