Do you know the “Strangest Secret?” A SECRET first revealed by Earl Nightingale in 1957 that once spread, forever transforming the lives of those who take the time to understand it!

Nightingale’s SECRET had a HUGE impact on my life and it’s my honor to be able to share it with you and in turn show you the massive impact it’s made on my life.

Earl Nightingale’s Strangest Secret

To start, and in order to not paraphrase the important words you are about to hear, I strongly suggest you dive in and listen to immortal words of Earl Nightingale as he so eloquently delivered the Strangest Secret.

The words on this recording while made in 1957 still ring true today! In fact, if you ignore these words, you are doing so at your own peril.

The Definition Of Success

As Nightingale put it, in order to be a success you must first define it. His definition is that, “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”

This means that in order to become successful, you must first define your own idea of what success means to you, and decide to deliberately focus your mind on the pursuit of that goal.

Setting Your Goal

The reality is, you can’t reach any destination without first knowing where you want to be. This is true in life, yet the masses stumble about aimlessly like a ship in the sea without a captain. No one at the helm and no course plotted on the GPS leading to a defined destination.

The goalless masses wonder why bad things continue to happen to them, yet they are unwilling to extend their hands and put them on the controls.

Don’t let this be you. We are only on this earth for a brief time, so you must take control of the time you have left and the “Strangest Secret” is your ticket to manifesting your ultimate goal!

We Become What We Think About

So what is the Strangest Secret? Well, it actually is not much of a secret at all, yet most never figure out how to harness it’s power.

The fact is, the secret can be tracked back throughout history. The great Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius stated, “a man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.”

Nightingale gives numerous examples. So why is “what you think of, you become” such a strange secret if it really is no secret at all?

Why something that’s not really a “SECRET” really is the SECRET to Success!

An easy way for me to think about it is fried chicken. More to the point, the Colonel’s secret recipe is a blend of 11 herbs and spices all of which are known by anyone who can find their way around the kitchen.

Yet, when you take these things everyone knows and you use them in a special way, something magical happened. World famous, “finger lickin good” chicken.

I realize this is a strange analogy, but in the Strangest Secret recording Nightingale goes on to give you a secret way to help focus your mind on the goal you want to achieve.

This Challenge being his secret recipe…

Nightingale’s 30 Day Challenge

Nightingale outlines his secret recipe to unlocking the true power of the Strangest Secret with his 30-Day Challenge that I challenge YOU to take.

He outlines it like this in three simple steps:

“1. Write on a card what it is you want more that anything else. It may be more money. Perhaps you’d like to double your income or make a specific amount of money. It may be a beautiful home. It may be success at your job. It may be a particular position in life. It could be a more harmonious family.

Write down on your card specifically what it is you want. Make sure it’s a single goal and clearly defined. You needn’t show it to anyone, but carry it with you so that you can look at it several times a day. Think about it in a cheerful, relaxed, positive way each morning when you get up, and immediately you have something to work for and something to get out of bed for, something to live for.

Look at it every chance you get during the day and just before going to bed at night. As you look at it, remember that you must become what you think about, and since you’re thinking about your goal, you realize that soon it will be yours. In fact, it’s really yours the moment you write it down and begin to think about it.

2. Stop thinking about what it is you fear. Each time a fearful or negative thought comes into your mind, replace it with a mental picture of your positive and worthwhile goal. And there will come a time when you’ll feel like giving up. It’s easier for a human being to think negatively than positively. That’s why only five percent are successful! You must begin now to place yourself in that group.”

3. Your success will always be measured by the quality and quantity of service you render. Most people will tell you that they want to make money, without understanding this law. The only people who make money work in a mint. The rest of us must earn money. This is what causes those who keep looking for something for nothing, or a free ride, to fail in life. Success is not the result of making money; earning money is the result of success and and success is in direct proportion to our service.”

Earl really has unlocked the SECRET to success, and his challenge has helped me manifest FollowFunding and realize a life of true success.

This is the card I carry with me laminated with tape. Yes, I know at first this sounds corny, but get outside of your own head and let this STRANGE SECRET work its magic in your life.

  1. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  2. As a matter of fact, I’m geared to the the right direction. I was totally on an undefined bearing. Who knows where I will have landed?
    Thanks for the impact.
