Overview

The beginning of this book was very powerful, motivating, and full of fire. This book will give you a new way to view the world and everything in it through a very positive window. It will also empower and equip you for conscious, creative growth, and instill in you the belief and the fire to be great.

Wattles asserts that greatness is not only for a select, privileged few, but that every person has within themselves the power and faculties to become great in their own right. Indeed, Wattles believes that "Greatness is equally inherent in all, and may be manifested by all."

You will like the following paraphrased lines from the book: "To become 'great,' you must start by doing small things in great ways. So he says to begin today to be great in your own home and office...in all relations, be just, generous, courteous and kind. When you begin to do even small things in a great way, you will eventually be able to do bigger things in a great way. Your habit of deliberately thinking and acting in the best way you know how will cause you to continually grow until you become a great person."

Wattles precribes this in regards to being great: "DO not merely think that you are going to become great; think that you are great now. Do not think that you will begin to act in a great way at some future time; begin now. Do not think that you will act in a great way when you reach a different environment; act in a great way where you are now. Do not think that you will begin to act in a great way when you begin to deal with great things; begin to deal in a great way with small things. Do not think that you will begin to be great when you get among more intelligent people, or among people who understand you better; begin now to deal in a great way with the people around you."

Wallace D Wattles was a man and awakend soul whose works, even though written nearly 100 years ago ring Truth for today that are undeniable. This 3 CV audio version was a pleasure to record and the reason I did so, was I simply desired to have this great mans's work understood by the masses as it CAN get a little too deep in old language. I di not wish this to prevent some cool seekers from GETTING the message. Listening to this with the extra information to help clarify points will help anyone tap into their TRUE GREATNESS. It gives me God Bumps.
