How To Get What You Want explains the fundamentals of transforming your life to be more fulfilling and successful by applying the dynamic laws of success and prosperity.

As author Orison Swett Marden says "Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them!"

Rid yourself of the disease of discouragement and walk boldly forwards in life to get what you want.

If you don't, then who will?

Orison Swett Marden founded the original Success Magazine in the late 1800's and grew it to a circulation over 500,000, which was considered very large for that time.

He was a prolific success writer and counted Carnegie, J.C. Penney, and many others of the same ilk, among his friends.  

Some consider him the grandfather of personal development who influenced a legion of modern-day writers including Napoleon Hill.

It was said of Marden that he averaged two books a year, from his first in 1894 to his last just before his passing in 1924, and had some two million words in unpublished manuscripts when he died.
