Congratulations, and I mean that sincerely, you have achieved what so many will have failed, you have stuck with it, followed it, listened and learned. You are Unlocking the Power of You.
You have reached the final lesson, but not my final word.
Lesson 24 is called Alchemy, which was known as the spagyric art after Greek words meaning to separate and to join together.
However, the best-known goals of the alchemists were the transmutation of common metals into gold or silver.
So why do we discuss Alchemy? Charles Haanels lessons have shown us that gold in the mind may be transmuted into gold in the heart and in the hand. Perhaps an Alchemy of life principles?

The Game of Life And How to Play It-Chapter 10-Denials and Affirmations By Florence Scovel Shinn
Thou shalt decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee."
All the good that is to be made manifest in mans life is already an accomplished fact in divine mind, and is released through mans recognition, or spoken word, so he must be careful to decree that only the Divine Idea be made manifest, for often, he decrees, through his "idle words," failure or misfortune.
It is, therefore, of the utmost importance, to word ones demands correctly, as stated in a previous chapter. If one desires a home, friend, position or any other good thing, make the demand for the "divine selection."
If you have practiced each of the exercises a few minutes every day as suggested, you will have found that you can get out of life exactly what you wish by first putting into life that which you wish, and you will probably agree with the student who said:
The thought is almost overwhelming, so vast, so available, so definite, so reasonable and so usable."
The fruit of this knowledge is, as it were a gift of the Gods. It is the "truth" that makes men free, not only free from every lack and limitation, but also free from sorrow, worry and care. And is it not wonderful to realize that this law is no respecter of persons, that it makes no difference what your habit of thought may be, the way has been prepared.
If you are inclined to be religious, the greatest religious teacher the world has ever known made the way so plain that all may follow. If your mental bias is towards physical science, the law will operate with mathematical certainty. If you are inclined to be philosophical, Plato or Emerson may be your teacher, but in either case, you may reach degrees of power to which it is impossible to assign any limit.
An understanding of this principle, I believe, is the secret for which the ancient Alchemists vainly sought, because it explains how gold in the mind may be transmuted into gold in the heart and in the hand.
