Went from being suicidal to being a bestselling author and legendary speaker.
After his military duties, Mandino became an insurance salesman. One wintry November morning in Cleveland, Mandino contemplated committing suicide. But as he sorted through several books in a library, volumes of self-help, success and motivation books captured Mandino’s attention. He selected some titles, went to a table and began reading. Mandino followed his visit to the library with more visits to many other libraries around the United States. He read hundreds of books that dealt with success, a pastime that helped him alleviate his alcoholism. Mandino eventually became a successful writer and speaker. His works were inspired by the Bible and influenced by Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone, and Emmet Fox. He was inducted into the National Speakers Association Speaker Hall of Fame.
