Orison Swett Marden is considered to be the founder of the modern success movement in America. He bridged the gap between the old notions of success and the new, more comprehensive, models later made popular by best-selling authors such as Napoleon Hill, Clement Stone, Dale Carnegie, Og Mandino, Earl Nightingale, Norman Vincent Peale, and today's authors such as Stephen R.Covey, Anthony Robbins, and Brian Tracy. Although targeted for business professionals, this is a book for anyone who has ever been called an under-achiever or one who fears that they may never be able to fulfill their own potential or early promise. Be Good to Yourself defines the traits which can prevent success and explores the thinking habits that often create our own failures. In a positive but forceful manner the author explains how to escape or avoid these traps that so often cripple our lives and careers.
