"A Classic Well Done"
Life-changing wisdom never goes out of style! These eight classic works have truly stood the test of time, selling tens of millions of copies and remaining in constant demand. Now The Secrets of Success, a one-of-a-kind anthology of achievement, reveals why they are every bit as inspiring as they were a century ago.
In this program, Denis Waitley narrates one of the most popular self-help speeches in the world - delivered over 6,000 times by Russell Conwell, a Baptist minister, nearly 150 years ago. At the heart of Acres of Diamonds is a parable Conwell heard while traveling through the Middle East in 1870.
In Acres of Diamonds, Russell H. Conwell shows us how to identify the riches and opportunity that lie all around us. Many people search their entire life for opportunity never realizing that everything they need to succeed is already within their reach if only they recognized it.
"Good story, but very hard to listen to"
Award-winning narrator Mike Vendetti reads Acres of Diamonds, originally a lecture that Dr. Russell Conwell delivered in over 6,000 towns, villages, and cities.
Do you dream of a life of riches, prosperity, and purpose? Well, stop dreaming - the answers are not in some fantasy or far-off place. They are directly under your nose. Minister and Temple University founder Russell H. Conwell became famous for his motivational and self-improvement lecture "Acres of Diamonds", which he delivered around the nation more than 5,152 times before his death in 1925.
Il testo completo dell'orazione "Acri di diamanti", pronunciata più di 5000 volte in diverse città degli Stati Uniti d'America tra il 1900 e il 1925. Un classico della letteratura motivazionale, fonte di grande ispirazione per gli autori moderni, come Napoleon Hill e Og Mandino. Attraverso storie vere e avvincenti, l'autore ti racconta come la vera ricchezza è sempre a portata di mano, come la puoi trovare anche nelle cose più semplici della vita di tutti i giorni.
"I say that you ought to get rich, and it is your duty to get rich... The men who get rich may be the most honest men you find in the community. Let me say here clearly... ninety-eight out of one hundred of the rich men of America are honest. That is why they are rich. That is why they are trusted with money. That is why they carry on great enterprises and find plenty of people to work with them. It is because they are honest men..." This motivational lecture is one of the best and most enduring of all.
Russell Conwell (1843-1925) was a man of many parts - lawyer, Baptist minister, traveler, Civil War veteran, and philanthropist - but is best remembered today for his celebrated lecture, Acres of Diamonds, which was published in book form in 1890. Conwell's basic premise in this work is very simple: A person's fortune can be found in his own backyard.
