Orison Swett Marden’s An Iron Will, 1901

I was introduced to Orison Swett Marden’s works when I read The Miracle of Right Thought in 1960, following my journey with Think and Grow Rich and The Master Key, by Hill and Haanel respectively.

What I really wanted to focus on today is Marden’s work, An Iron Will, published 1910.

From Wikipedia:

Dr. Orison Swett Marden (1850 – 1924) was an American inspirational author who wrote on success in life and how to achieve it. 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. His first book, Pushing to the Front (1894), became an instant best-seller and remains a classic in the genre of self-help. Marden later published fifty or more books and booklets, averaging two titles per year. He is also known for his many pamphlets”.

Orison Swett Marden, Author of An Iron WillOrison Sweet Marden is also know as the Founder of Success Magazine in 1897. It was later combined with the a magazine from Clement Stone and and actually Og Mandino was president of the magazine in the 1970’s.

I have been intrigued with several of his pamphlets, most notably An Iron Will and have decided to narrate the entire text and have available to your “listening pleasure”

The one section that struck me the most was section on Persistence

Napoleon Hill said “Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.” and not taking that final step
