Publisher's Summary

"If you understand completely what I am going to tell you, from this moment on, your life will never be the same again." -Earl Nightingale

This amazing message was first played for a group of salespeople at Earl Nightingale's insurance agency. They were utterly electrified. Word of it spread like wildfire, and everyone who heard it was positively ignited into action. Requests for a recording of the message came pouring in - thousands of requests per week. Within no time, more than 200,000 people had called, written, or just walked right into Earl's office to request a copy. As years went by, that number soared above 1,000,000. Today, more than 40 years later, The Strangest Secret remains one of the most powerful and influential messages ever recorded. It continues to transform the lives of everyone who hears and heeds it.

Classic Recording for Motivation and Success

The first 30 minutes are superb. There is a short middle section about the company that created the recording and then the third part is an interview that is excellent as well. The third part is very different than the first part but you can really hear a lot of wisdom in that excellent interview. For the cost and the time commitment for this short recording, the investment returns should be exponential if you are a person who truly is willing to take action to achieve your definition of success.

Excellent

So many don't realize how our own inner thoughts effect our daily lives and our business, not to mention the way we treat our employees who build our companies for us. My goal to be a leader that glorifies everything the staff does....because I have been that staff and if they aren't taken care of and happy your business can't strive.

The simple truth!

This programme is a awakening, if you can listen to it with open ears it can change your life. Every time I listen to it I pick up something new :-) "What the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve" Napoleon Hill

Started off really strong - !!less than 2 hours

If you could sum up The Strangest Secret and This I Believe in three words, what would they be?

fascinating then patchy then ends in less than 2 hours

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes - it's so short it was over on a return tube journey!!

Any additional comments?

why so short? parts are fascinating & really motivating, then some parts are patchy and then it ends - surely this has room for another couple of hours (without the need to be repetitive).
