About the Book
This classic motivational book by Orison Swett Marden is packed with motivation, positive thinking and time tested positive values. Marden is considered to be one of the pioneers of positive thinking and an all time great “master motivator.” Marden Quotes: A constant struggle is the price of all great achievements. A good system shortens the road to the goal. A strong, successful man is not the victim of his environment. He creates favorable conditions. His own inherent force and energy compel things to turn out as he desires. A will finds a way. Achievement is not always success, while reputed failure often is. It is honest endeavor, persistent effort to do the best possible under any and all circumstances. All men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers. All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim; have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible. Analyzing what you haven’t got as well as what you have is a necessary ingredient of a career. Be larger than your task. In 25 chapters of this volume, Marden explains the road to success in simple terms for the benefit of anyone, who wishes to follow in his footsteps.
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.
