The Miracle of Right Thought

by Orison Swett Marden | 339 pages

Marden wrote this book in 1910. To put that in perspective: Teddy Roosevelt had just left the Presidency. I just love the old-school, hard-hitting, uber-inspiring wisdom Marden delivers. The founder of SUCCESS magazine, he’s kinda like a mashup of Ralph Waldo Emerson, James Allen and Tony Robbins. Big Ideas we explore: the power of vision, letting go of fear, and basking in the sunshine of right thought.


“The book teaches that everybody ought to be happier than the happiest of us are now; that our lives were intended to be infinitely richer and more abundant than at present; that we should have plenty of everything which is good for us; that the lack of anything which is really necessary and desirable does not fit the constitution of any right-living human being, and that we shorten our lives very materially through our own false thinking, our bad living, and our old-age convictions, and that to be happy and attain the highest efficiency, one must harmonize with the best, the highest thing in him.”

~ Orison Swett Marden from The Miracle of Right Thought
