SUCCESS SAGA : ORISON SWETT MARDEN

He is the mountain of wisdom. Handed out the success sagas of great people to us. This 20th century Personality Development Guru is responsible for New Thought Movement of America. His unparalleled insights on life through his writings lift even the dud.

I came to know this great man while I was reading a book " Awaken the Giant Within' the much acclaimed work of Anthony Robbins sometime in 2004.

 Mr. Robbins needs no introduction as he is one of the America's top most personality development gurus and has a reputation of conducting courses on 'Fire Walk'. In fact I was driven to read the book of Anthony Robbins: Awaken the Giant Within, when I come across a sketchy remark on Robbins in my vernacular Telugu as "Vyakti Vikasa Mantrikudu'- Magician of Personality Development - by Dr B.V. Pattabhiram's (famous Telugu writer) in his book on NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) In fact, I was awestruck when I read about the fiery quote of Marden in Robbins book: Awaken the Giant Within. The quote goes wild fire  like this:

Deep within man dwell those slumbering powers,
powers that would astonish him that he never dreamed of
possessing; Forces that would revolutionize his life,
if aroused and put into action.


The above quote of Marden invigorated my perception of life. When it comes to his groundbreaking works, I could say that his magical words mesmerize the readers instantly to unlock their inner potential. His selective phrases and apt adjectives fit the context like colours and shades in a fabric. After I read about Marden, my level of enthusiasm grew manifold.   Marden's life story itself is very interesting. A medical doctor and successful hotelier, he devoted his career to writing inspiring books. He founded Success Magazine in 1897. Marden believes that our thoughts influence our lives and our life circumstances.

His famous books include "Pushing to the Front, Cheerfulness as a Life Power. His sublime narrating style trigger so many positive thoughts and his laborious task of culling out the wisdom of great people of past centuries is above board. All his books are must read ones and can be freely downloadable from the internet.

After reading a few of his books, I feel that no new book need to be churned out in self help category as abundant efforts had already been made by Marden. So when you are in low spirits and searching for a pill to put you in resilient mood, turn to Marden's treasure trove.
