The Law of Practice by Emmet Fox
Practice makes perfect. This familiar proverb embodies one of the great laws of human nature and -- being a law -- it is never under any circumstance broken.
To become proficient in any field you must practice. There is simply no achievement without practice and the more practice, provided it is done intelligently, the greater will the proficiency be and the sooner will it be attained. This is true in the study of music, in the study of a foreign language, in learning to swim or skate or ski or fly. It is true in every conceivable branch of human endeavor. Practice is the price of proficiency.
In business life and in any kind of management or administration, experience is the form that practice takes, and here again it is practice that makes perfect. That is why, other things being equal, an older person is usually to be selected for responsible positions rather than a younger.
In metaphysics the effects of this law are particularly striking. Thought control is entirely a matter of intelligent practice. And true religion may well be summed up as the Practice of the Presence of God. But note that I said intelligent. Violent forcing is not intelligent practice, nor is monotonous plodding.
Practice is the secret of attainment. We might paraphrase Danton and say practice! ... and more practice!! ... and still more practice!!!
