Publisher's Summary

Character is based on the original work of the late Dr. Orison Swett Marden. Richard Gorham, founder of, has edited and narrated Character in an effort to introduce Marden's teachings to a brand-new generation of leaders and entrepreneurs.

As the following excerpt shows, listeners will learn important life lessons as they begin their leadership journey:

"Our own free will, our conviction that we have real power over the formation of our character; our will, by virtue of influencing our circumstances, being able to modify and build for our future, provides the tool of personal empowerment we need in order to take charge of our lives.

"How is character made up, except by our choices and our refusals? We select from life what we choose. In this way we resemble insects which assume the color of the leaves and plants they feed upon. Sooner or later we become like the food of our minds, like the creatures that live in our hearts.

"Every act of our lives, every word, every association, is written with an iron pen upon the very texture of our being. What will our future be except what we make it? Our purpose will give it meaning. One's resolution is one's prophecy. There is no bright hope, no great outlook, for the man who is not inspired by a resolute purpose."
