About the Book
The soul-consuming and friction-wearing tendency of this hurrying, grasping, competing age is the excuse for this little book. Cheerfulness has a wonderful lubricating power. This book will show you how to be happier in your life, and more importantly, how to use that happiness to be more successful. First comes the happiness and then the success, not the other way around as we so often think. It leads the reader to look on the sunny side of things, and to take a little time every day to speak pleasant words.
About the Author
Orison Swett Marden was the founder of the modern success and positive thinking movement. He changed the old notions of success with the new more comprehensive ideas made popular by best-selling. His life was not an easy one; orphaned at the age of seven, he was left to fend for himself and his two sisters. He began reading self-help books, which greatly inspired him to escape from the treacherous world of poverty and become self-reliant. Part of the New Thought Movement, a spiritual set that linked spirituality and personal development, Marden has also authored many articles for the New Thought Movement based magazine, ‘The Nautilus’. He has authored over twenty books, many of them are admired and even read today as timeless classics. His book, ‘Pushing to the Front’, sold many copies and became one of the classics in the genre of self-help literature.
