Publisher's Summary

There is, and always has been, a widespread belief in Fate, or Destiny, that is, in an eternal and inscrutable Power which apportions definite ends to both individuals and nations. This belief has arisen from long observation of the facts of life. Men are conscious that there are certain occurrences which they cannot control, and are powerless to avert. Birth and death, for instance, are inevitable, and many of the incidents of life appear equally inevitable. Men strain every nerve for the attainment of certain ends, and gradually they become conscious of a Power which seems to be not of themselves, which frustrates their puny efforts, and laughs, as it were, at their fruitless striving and struggle. As men advance in life, they learn to submit, more or less, to this overruling Power which they do not understand, perceiving only its effects in themselves and the world around them, and they call it by various names, such as God, Providence, Fate, Destiny, etc.

Dry but worthwhile

This book is filled with some cliched type wisdom but the presentation and clarity of it still make it worth the listen. Pearls of wisdom are within and whilst not the most entertaining book I'm sure most people will find frequent inspirations.

Soooooooooooooooo

Sooooooooooooooooooooo

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

Fu**king goooood!!!! Words like this are so potent and cure-like to the lost reader.

I certainly must be the luckiest human being alive to purchase a book that’s truly worth a Kings ransom and yet brought it for practically for PENNIES!

What an age we live in today with the easiest and most effective access to knowledge, but unfortunately, it’s sadly taken for granted. Earl nightingale said it best...

“When you look around you, you’ll notice it’s so easy to WIN”.

Amen to that! 🙏🏼

Thanks audible team and Sean Pratt for his excellent narrating skills, perfection at its best! 👍🏼

Great book

We create and see our own world through the lens of our thoughts whether it be good or bad. Change begins within and is transferred without. Law of attraction. This book will change the way you view the world and your circumstances. Must read.
