The Secret Of Success - William Walker Atkinson
This is a course of nine lessons on the subject of the application of the latent powers of the individual towards attainment of success in life.
The author writes: "There is, besides the mere recital of a list of Good Qualities Leading to Success - a list with which every schoolboy and reader of the magazines is acquainted - a Something Else.
"And that Something Else, is a suggestion that the Seeker for Success has a Something Within himself which if expressed into activity and action will prove of great value to him - a veritable Secret of Success, instead of a code of rules.
"So, therefore, do not expect to find this book a complete compendium of rules conducive to success, approved of and formulated by the successful men of the world who became acquainted with these rules only after they had attained success...and consequently had time and inclination to preach to others.
"This is not a book of that sort. It is quite different. We hope you will like it - it will do you good in any event."
