Earl Nightingale was a motivational writer and author. He visited his local library in Long Beach Public Library in California searching for the answer to the question, "How can a person, starting from scratch, who has no particular advantage in the world, reach the goals that he feels are important to him, and by so doing, make a major contribution to others?"
His career started in the Marine Corps. His volunteer work at a local radio station paid off in later years when he and his wife moved first to Phoenix then Chicago to build what was to be a very successful career in network radio. He retired from radio and bought his own insurance company where he spent many hours motivating the sales agents to greater accomplishments. Before going on an extended vacation, his sales manager convinced him to put his inspirational words on record. This resulted in the recording entitled The Strangest Secret, which became a Gold Record - it sold over a million copies. As Steve King said, "Earl Nightingale never let a day go by that he didn't learn something new and, in turn, pass it on to others. It was his consuming passion."
another word for faith!"
