Remember that you cannot tell what may come to you in the future... and you cannot afford to take chances upon having anything in your history which can come up to embarrass you
or to keep you back.
-from the chapter "The Power of Purity"
A phenomenal bestseller when it was first published in 1894 and greatly expanded, by popular demand, to two volumes in 1911, Orison Swett Marden's Pushing to the Front is a classic of the literature of personal motivation that remains startling relevant today. Marden, a forerunner of Dale Carnegie and Norman Vincent Peale, Stephen R.Covey and Anthony Robbins, explores a wide range of issues that hold us back from success in all arenas of our lives. Chapters in Volume 2 cover:
· The man with an idea
· The will and the way
· The might of little things
· Expect great things of yourself
· The habit of happiness
· The power of suggestion
· The curse of worry
· Why some succeed and others fail
· and much more.
"Nearly all great men, those who have towered high above their fellows, have been remarkable above all things else for their energy of will," Marden notes... and shows us how to cultivate our energy of will, too.
Also available from Cosimo Classics: Marden's Cheerfulness as a Life Power.
