About Earl Nightingale
Earl Nightingale was born in the USA, Los Angeles on 1921, March 12. His mom moved to Tent City when his father left his family. From young days, Earl was curious why some people are rich or some of them not. His mom liked to read books after the difficult job. As he told, she visited and traveled all world through books, every tiny corner of Earth. Mother’s passion for books was inherited. Earl Nightingale was fascinated and immersed in luring books world.
The Love for Books
From early days, a library was the source of knowledge for him. He read all books from writings about Indians to New Testament and sayings of Buddha. Of course, there were a lot more of them.

The Inspiration from Earl Nightingale and Greatest Discovery
This secret was that we become what we think about. Earl Nightingale‘s book Greatest Discovery is a valuable resource for these guys and girls, who want to change their lives for good.
One of my favorite parts of this book is the description regarding the situation when workers were laid off. They were unhappy because they taught that company supposed to take care of them. Always. Employees worked twenty years for the same company, and they felt that they can lose the jobs. Anyway, nobody thought about the possibility to improve skills, find a second profession besides what they had.
The moral is this: say yes to life, be open to opportunities to learn different things. Waiting when somebody will take care of you is foolish. Of course, it is tempting, but it is as the same as to live with parents and do not accept responsibility for your actions and consequences.

Earl Nightingale’s main discovery was that thoughts are things. He wrote his book Greatest Discovery in 1987. Foundation for this book was his audio record The Strangest Secret. It broadcasted in 1956. This audio record was famous. It was sold over million copies.
