The Strangest Secret

by Earl Nightingale | 42 pages

Want to know the strangest secret? Here it is: “We become what we think about.” That's it! Thank you, Earl Nightingale (and all other gret teachers who echo this wisdom!). In the Note we'll unpack Big Ideas from this uber-classic recording and learn how to optimize our thinking so we can actualize our potential.


“I’d like to tell you about The Strangest Secret in the World. The late Nobel prize-winning, Dr. Albert Schweitzer was once asked, “Doctor, what is wrong with men today?” The great doctor was silent a moment, and then he said, “Men simply do not think!” It is about this that I want to talk with you.”

~ Earl Nightingale from The Strangest Secret

This is a tiny little book packed with a bunch of Big Ideas. (Get it here.)
