Im blown away at how much value I received from this one book, I'm truly grateful to the author for taking the time to put it together. As an author myself, I can only imagine how much work it took to finish this project. It is truly an amazing piece of work.
I recommend getting the downloadable version which is available at audible.com. I love the audible version because it allows you to take notes in the app as you listen to the audio program. The book is 450pages and the audio version is around 18hrs long. You can also get the 20 Audio CD version from nightingale.com
These are the questions everyone must ask himself and answer... So the person who knows what he wants--knows what he must become, and he then fixes his attention on the preparation and development of himself. As he grows toward the ideal he holds in his mind, he finds interest, zest and joy on the journey. He looks forward to tomorrow, but he also enjoys today, for it is the tomorrow he looked forward to yesterday. He knows that if he cannot find meaning and value in the present, he will very likely be missing it in his future. Today is the future of five years ago. Are you enjoying it as much as you thought you would? Have you progressed to the point you wanted then to reach?
These are the questions that make us think."
~ Earl Nightingale from The Essence of Success
Just like The Strangest Secret in the World and Lead the Field, this book is a transcription of Nightingale's talks.
In fact, this little book features the distillation of 720 (!) hours of recordings! It's kind of like the greatest hits collection. The editors pulled out the themes that Nightingale came back to again and again--ranging from attitude, excellence, and courage to self-esteem, creativity, goal setting, and happiness.
It is truly packed with old-school wisdom.
I'm excited to explore a handful of my favorite Big Ideas:
1. How's Your Second Wind? - Time to ride it.
2. Active Patience - Is where it's at.
3. What Else - Would you expect?
4. All Your Worries - In one water glass.
5. Perseverance Can - accomplish anything.
Here's to loving the moment to moment, day by day opportunity to optimize our lives and actualize our potential!
