Classics for Your Collection:


Finish what you start. Follow through. Pay attention to the little details that affect the major things (the things other people ignore). Do what others are not willing to do. Don't waste time. Sharpen your focus. Study. Be courageous. These tidbits and more are covered in the process to succeed. Marden fills the pages with excellent stories from his day about success and how men of the era made successful lives out of following simple tenets for success. Quotes from famous names abound which color the subjects that follow. An entertaining read that left this reader ready for action, and eager for success.

Marden talks about individual traits and why they are so important for each of us and what happens when we violate them. Each chapter is a stand alone chapter and each has great stories to be told, and quotes to be read.

This is truly a great study of mankind and it is a Stepping Stones for your Fame and Fortune as the title suggests.

"Stick to the thing and carry it through. Believe you were made for the place you fill, and that no one else can fill it as well. Put forth your whole energies. Be awake, electrify yourself; go forth to the task. Only once learn to carry a thing through in all its completeness and proportion, and you will become a hero. You will think better of yourself; others will think better of you. The world in its very heart admires the stern, determined doer."

About the Author

Dr. Orison Swett Marden (1848-1924) was born in Thornton Gore, New Hampshire to Lewis and Martha Marden. He was an American inspirational author who wrote about achieving success in life and founded SUCCESS magazine in 1897. His writings discuss common-sense principles and virtues that make for a well-rounded, successful life. Many of his ideas are based on New Thought philosophy. During his early to mid-teens, Marden discovered a book entitled Self-Help by Scottish author Samuel Smiles in an attic. And so, Marden was profoundly influenced and inspired by Samuel Smiles. Smiles book Self-Help was instrumental in elevating and triggering Marden's career and life. Marden was successful at everything he undertook or started because of his deep and vast knowledge about success and how to put it into use in his own life. Marden's young manhood was marked by remarkable energy and unbroken achievement. By his early thirties, he had earned his academic degrees in science, arts, medicine and law. During his college years he supported himself by working in a hotel and afterward by becoming the owner of several hotels and a resort. Founded in 1897, Marden's Success magazine eventually grew to a circulation of about half a million subscribers. The publication had its own building and printing plant in New York and was backed by a workforce of two hundred or more employees.
