YOU CAN BECOME THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE

Can a bay-windowed middle-ager become a long-distance runner? Can a ""cast-off Negro orphan"" become a ""prominent"" doctor? A ""near-highschool drop-out"" race unspecified, gets pushed slightly farther in the medical hierarchy. The Reverend Schuller, pastor of a drive-in church (in California, naturally) votes yeah, especially in the U.S.A. -- ""There is a KEY -- There is a SECRET -- there is a WAY."" He's merchandizing it as ""Possibility Thinking"" (""some call it faith""), a grab-bag of grade-school formulae (""Role + Goal + Toll = Success""), cutesy slogans (""No Gain Without Pain"") and cliches (""leadership goes to those who think ahead""). ""I offer you a ladder,"" Schuller says, but this up-lifter is as rickety as any you'll find.
