The very first paragraph is what I quote every single time I get an opportunity.
Here is the excerpt: The late Nobel prize-winning Dr. Albert Schweitzer was once asked, "Doctor, what is wrong with men today?" The great doctor was silent a moment, and then he said, "Men simply do not think.
This is SO TRUE.
Look around you and you will not find many people that actually THINK.
5% of the people think, ten percent of the people think they think, and the other 85% would rather watch what Kim Kardashian's are doing than think.
Another great line that I always quote from this book is...
The problem is that our mind comes as a standard equipment at birth. It's free. And things that are given to us for nothing, we place little value on. Things that we pay money for, we value.
I will end this review by saying, your mind is your best friend and only friend that will come to your aide in need, so you better take good care of it. And it starts with thinking. Give yourself 5-10mins a day to think and ponder about your life and goals.
~ Earl Nightingale from The Strangest Secret
The Strangest Secret in the World.
Earl Nightingale wrote and recorded this little piece in 1956. Millions of people listened to the recording. Earl later created Nightingale-Conant--revolutionizing the way people learned self development material.
Here is the best definition of success I've ever been able to find: `Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal
Let's explore some of my favorite Big Ideas:
1. The Strangest Secret = We become what we think about.
2. The Difference - Is goals.
3. Two Ships - Yours have a captain?
4. A Farmer's Land - Is what your mind's lke
5. A Checklist - For successful living.
Replace fear thoughts with your enthusiasm for your goal. Then DO YOUR BEST. Serve more profoundly than you've ever served. And have fun while remembering The Strangest Secret... We become what we think about! :)

Clear and concise, no nonsense touchy feel stuff here, GREAT book that stands the test of time.
Get it and read it and then do it.
Let's face it, the information is out there and easily obtained with a quick search but the reason you want to own this book is, in my opinion, two-fold. One is to hold the work that can actually be the inspiration to change your life. The second is to keep it in the forefront of your mind. Keep a copy on your desk, nightstand or other easily accessible location. The Strangest Secret should be reviewed on a regular basis. I have more than one copy and suggest you do the same...and buy several to give away!
Here's my only complaint...and it's more of a preference than a complaint. The book is too big..currently 6"x9". I would much prefer the format be smaller...maybe 3"x4"...small enough to fit in a pocket. This way it could be carried around and referred to over and over. There are not many pages...about 40...so it wouldn't be that thick.
It's not for those how want a hand out - it's for those who want to WORK and ACHIEVE. It's a 30 minute read in this format - but I bet I used 2 colored pens and multiple color hilighters - it's so full of great stuff.
