If you want to reach your potential and stay there, there's one thing you absolutely must do - think well of yourself.

Those who believe they don't deserve much from life ultimately discover that they don't get much from life.

In this timeless classic, author Orison Swett Marden, the original founder of Success magazine, uncovers key aspects of your life that may be preventing you from being good to yourself and stopping your reaching your greatest potential as a human being.

He looks at the unwelcome behaviors which prevent successful living and explores the mental habits that often lie at the root of our failures.

Marden was a towering inspiration to many of the success gurus of his time, who in turn wrote many of the books that have inspired and guided the success gurus of today.

In Be Good To Yourself, he effortlessly blends self-confidence, self-help and spirituality into a fascinating and motivating exploration of self-empowering attitudes.
