Posted on November 22, by bwillett Dr. Marden is one of the founding fathers of the personal development movement and the founder and first publisher of Success Magazine. He wrote many books back in the late 19th century and early 20th century. What I like about reading books that are older, is that the same things that applied then, apply now, they just had a different spin on them. Also, I like the fact that some of the material is outdated and made sense for the time, but to see how far we have come as a society is interesting as well. This book summary is comprised of the chapter titles and a few of my notes from the chapter. Also, each chapter begins with a quote and these also provide a nice takeaway for you.
When he first met Samual Smiles is not disclosed, but the English writer became his first literary hero and inspired much that Marden wrote and accomplished. Smiles's Self-Help, which he had found in an attic and read, did much in the shaping of his career.
He once wrote, "The little book was the friction which wakened the spark sleeping in the flint. On his return to Boston, he began to try to put together his ideas, particularly concerning optimism, which was to be a central theme in his writings -- incidentally also a central theme in New Thought.
Whilst most of his books make little or no mention of religion, some do. Marden was rather a writer of essentially New Thought faith than a writer technically on New Thought as such. Bitzer, longtime president of the INTA, was onetime secretary.
Marden's first book, Pushing to the Front, published in , had a phenomenal circulation. In he founded Success Magazine, which reached the enormous circulation, for that time, of nearly a half-million, meaning of course that it was read by from two to three million readers.
Also, I like the fact that some of the material is outdated and made sense for the time, but to see how far we have come as a society is interesting as well. This book summary is comprised of the chapter titles and a few of my notes from the chapter. Also, each chapter begins with a quote and these also provide a nice takeaway for you.
I believe the chapter title itself gives you a nice nugget that you can apply today to get be all that you can. A good conversationalist is one who has ideas, who reads, thinks, and who has therefore something to say—Sir Walter Scott. Nothing embarrass and bores the average man so much as a girl who has to be entertained. Authors notes, I like it so I highlighted, I would a guy or a girl : Good reading will not only broaden the mind and give new ideas, but it will also increase ones vocabulary.
Chapter 2: Put beauty in your life. There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy, and not pain, around us—Emerson. What is the best education?
Once asked of Plato. Inharmonious and destructive attitudes of mind will warp and mar the most beautiful creatures. If you are not wealthy yourself, be glad somebody else is, and you will be astonished at the happiness that will result to your self—Rev Dr. Charles F. I would rather be able to appreciate things I cannot have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.
The secret of happiness is in a cheerful, contented mind. Secretiveness repels as much as frankness attracts.
Be open with others. The power to please is a great success asset. It will do for you what money will not do. It will other give you capital which your financial assets alone would not warrant. People are governed by their likes and dislikes. We are powerfully influenced by a pleasing, charming personality.
A persuasive manner is often irresistible.
Even judges on the bench feel its fascination. The best way to draw people to you is to make them feel that you are interested in them. You must not do this for effect. You must be really interested in them, or they will detect the deception. Everybody loves a pleasant face. There is only one way to win love, and that is to love. Talent is something, but tact is everything.
Talent is no match for tact; we see its failure everywhere. In the race of life, common sense has the right away. Tact is an extremely delicate quality, difficult to define, hard to cultivate, but absolutely indispensable to one who wishes to get on in the world rapidly and smoothly. The personality of a physician has a great deal to do with his success, and with the chances of his patients.
There is no better discipline in the world than to force ourselves to be sociable and interesting to those for whom we do not care. Chapter 7: I had a friend. Oh Friendship! Of all things the most rare, and therefore most scare because most excellent, whose comforts in misery are always sweet, and whose counsels in prosperity and are ever fortunate—Lilly. Life is to be fortified by many friendships, said Sydney Smith. To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.

As the different objects attracted his attention, the cub thought he would explore a bit and see what the great world beyond his home was like. Before he realized it, he had wandered so far that he could not find his way back. He was lost. Very much frightened, the cub ran frantically in every direction calling piteously for his mother, but no mother responded.
Weary with his wanderings, he did not know what to do, when a sheep, whose offspring had been taken from her, hearing his pitiful cries, made friends with the lost cub, and adopted him.
The sheep became very fond of her foundling, which in a short while grew so much larger than herself that at times she was almost afraid of it. Often, too, she would detect a strange, far-off look in its eyes which she could not understand.
The foster mother and her adopted lived very happily together, until one day a magnificent lion appeared, sharply outlined against the sky, on the top of an opposite hill. He shook his tawny mane and uttered a terrific roar, which echoed through the hills.
