One of the eNewsletters that I most look forward to is Dan Miller’s 48 Days e-Newsletter. Dan’s mission/business/ministry is to help people discover the type of work they were created to do, job’s they love, become self-employed, or start their own business. The 48 Days materials are great and I highly recommend them. I haven’t done his course in 48 Days to the Work You Love, but I have purchased his 48 Days to Creative Income. This is some really good stuff!
In last week’s newsletter he mentioned that one of the things that really got him motivated as a teenager was listening to a record album by Earl Nightingale entitled “The Strangest Secret”. I’ve seen this mentioned in the biographies of several other people as one of the things that inspired them at a young age and they are now CEOs, great inventors, etc… You can purchase this on CD at Earl Nightingale’s web site. I really wanted instant gratification so I looked for a place to download it. Audible didn’t have it, but I did find it at Mark Victor Hansen’s web site as a free MP3 download. Mark’s version has commentary by him mixed in, but I tend to think that is also the full text of the original recording as well.
If you are looking to be the best that you can be, you owe it to yourself to download and study Earl Nightingale’s “The Strangest Secret”.
