How succeed in life and work like a successful person
Some people have a strong will to succeed but don't have the ambition to direct their power. And others have ambition or dreams, but they don't possess a strong will that will make sure they succeed in spite of all those big obstacles and hurdles and keep going strongly.
What you need is a strong will, coupled with a sublime ambition. Then you have that rare combination to success. Success of any degree.
And this book is all about both. It presents to you one of the greatest classic self-help writers Orison Swett Marden's book An Iron Will and his another book Ambition and Success, bound together in one single volume.
The First Book: An Iron Will:
The book is written in such a powerful way that it will make you to realize the importance of developing a strong iron will for your success. All the great men and women in history invariably possessed an iron will which saw them through all their seemingly enormous challenges and hardships.
Very few today possess a strong will power to stay in the process to succeed. This book can teach and inspire you to be and become one.
Some Insights From the Book:
1. "We rise by the things that are under our feet; By what we have mastered of good or gain."
2. "The star of an unconquered will
Arose in his breast,
Serene, and resolute and still,
And calm and self-possessed."
3. Never allow yourself to be convinced that you are not complete master of yourself. Stoutly affirm your own superiority over bodily ills. We should keep a high ideal of health and harmony constantly before the mind.
4. The power to hold on is characteristic of all men who have accomplished anything great.
The Second Book: Not the Salary but the Opportunity
Of course Will Power will put you into the top league. When you couple this power with excellent ways to approach your work or job or profession, you take yourself to a whole new level. And that is what the second little book is all about. How to become a star in your field with simple ways.
Some Nuggets From the Book:
1. The quality which you put into your work will determine the quality of your life. The habit of insisting upon the best of which you are capable, of always demanding of yourself the highest, never accepting the lowest or second best, no matter how small your remuneration, will make all the difference to you between failure and success.
2. Do not fear that your employer will not recognize your merit and advance you as rapidly as you deserve. If he is looking efficient employees--- and what employer is not? --- it will be to his own interest to do so, -- just as soon as it is profitable. W.Bourke Cockran, himself a remarkable example of success, says:
"The man who brings to his occupation a loyal desire to do his best is certain to succeed. By doing the thing at hand surpassingly well, he shows that it would be profitable to employ him in some higher form of occupation, and, when there is profit in his promotion, he is pretty sure to secure it."

About the Author
He was an American inspirational author who wrote about achieving success in life and founded SUCCESS magazine in 1897. His writings discuss common-sense principles and virtues that make for a well-rounded, successful life. Many of his ideas are based on New Thought philosophy.
During his early to mid-teens, Marden discovered a book entitled Self-Help by Scottish author Samuel Smiles in an attic. And so, Marden was profoundly influenced and inspired by Samuel Smiles. Smiles book Self-Help was instrumental in elevating and triggering Marden's career and life.
Marden was successful at everything he undertook or started because of his deep and vast knowledge about success and how to put it into use in his own life.
Marden's young manhood was marked by remarkable energy and unbroken achievement. By his early thirties, he had earned his academic degrees in science, arts, medicine and law. During his college years he supported himself by working in a hotel and afterward by becoming the owner of several hotels and a resort.
Founded in 1897, Marden's Success magazine eventually grew to a circulation of about half a million subscribers. The publication had its own building and printing plant in New York and was backed by a workforce of two hundred or more employees.
