WOW! Here’s one of the most profound “THOUGHTS” (pun intended) ever recorded:
“YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT.”
Earl Nightingale is literally the father of PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT. THE STRANGEST SECRET was literally the seed from which this personal development industry grew.
Written in 1956, when Earl was 35 years old, he recorded this short message for a small group of salesmen one Saturday morning. The message had such a positive impact that everyone wanted copies to share with their friends and family. Earl Nightingale arranged with Columbia Records to duplicate this record and ultimately received a Gold Record for sale of a million copies. (This is in the 1950’s!)
I started to summarize this book but that’s very unfair. Just order your copy right now. It’s 19 small pages (the book) and takes only 30 minutes to listen to (the audio).
To whet your appetite:
“Men simply don’t think.”
“We become what we think about.”
“Success equals the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”
“Instead of competing, all we have to do is create.”
“Impact = Income!” (I swear it’s in there!) He calls it the Law of Mutual Exchange.
