About the Author
Florence Scovel Shinn was born in New Jersey, the daughter of Alden Cortlandt Scovel and Emily Hopkinson Scovel. She was educated in Philadelphia where she attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and there met her future husband, the artist Everett Shinn (1876–1953). After marriage they moved into a studio apartment at 112 Waverly Place, near Washington Square, New York. Everett built a theatre next door, and wrote three plays in which Florence played a leading role. Everett Shinn became known as a member of the Ashcan School of art, and Florence worked as an illustrator.
Her metaphysical works began with her self-published The Game of Life and How to Play it in 1925. Your Word is Your Wand was published in 1928 and The Secret Door to Success in 1940. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Ms. Shinn's focus is a change in your thinking, which will result in a change in your attitude, then actions, then circumstances, then life.
She has written several sound-bite chapters in this book; listed, they are:
*The Secret Door to Success (how everyone faces the same issue, and same solution)
*Bricks Without Straw (Work as if you can)
*And Five of Them Were Wise (change your perception)
*What Do You Expect (Expect good, good will come)
*The Long Arm of God (His providence upon you)
*The Fork In the Road (Decisions)
*Crossing Your Red Sea (When you have a sea in front and monsters behind, onward ho!)
*The Watchman At the Gate (keeping the Good in mind)
*I Shall Never Want (reminders and more affirmations)
*Look With Wonder (for those who can't seem to change their thinking)
*Catch Up With Your Good (you always plan for it but do not receive it)
*Rivers In the Desert (When supply seems impossible)
*The Inner Meaning of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (self explanatory)
Amazing. Read this, if you need a shot in your attitude's arm!
I dropped out of school at the age of 12 and never went back, but Florence Scovel-Shinn lead me through the "Secret Door To Success". It's a magical land once you get there and the journey is equally as magical.
Many blessings to you on your journey. Never give up and never lose sight of what you want. Always know that what you want is possible and is yours for the taking. Just choose the right door.
