"Earl Nightingale (March 12, 1921 – March 28, 1989) was an American motivational speaker and author, known as the "Dean of Personal Development." He was the voice in the early 1950s of Sky King, the hero of a radio adventure series, and was a WGN radio show host from 1950 to 1956. Nightingale was the author of the Strangest Secret, which economist Terry Savage has called “…One of the great motivational books of all time“. - Wikipedia
Earl Nightingale Quotes:
"WE BECOME WHAT WE THINK ABOUT."
"Our attitude towards others determines their attitude towards us."
"Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal."
"All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination."
"Picture yourself in your minds eye as having already achieved this goal. See yourself doing the things you'll be doing when you've reached your goal."
"Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people."
"A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change." "The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!"

Earl Nightingale is THE PIONEER of positive thinking and inspirational audios. Decades later, a bunch of authors copied this work and wrote "The Secret" which is nothing but a rephrase of Nightingale's original work.
Happiness is of your own thought. It is a choice. A thought. A decision. Your happiness may not be my happiness. Success is great I suppose. If you set goals too high, you aren’t happy. Take life as it comes. Smart is a process of information making a BEST decision. Success is in your mind. The same as happiness. We all live and die.
