Greatest Story Ever Told

What is the greatest story every told? The story of Moses? The teachings of Jesus Christ? The life of Gandhi? Perhaps a few good books come to mind… The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino; or James Allen’s masterpiece, As a Man Thinketh? And what about that towering novel by Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged? True, there are others that could (and should) have been added to the list… Great people, perhaps even greater stories—but what is the greatest story ever told?

When Earl Nightingale recorded The Strangest Secret over 50 years ago, this world was a very different place. Folks grew up, went to school, got a job, fell in love, married and planned on spending the next 30 plus years of their lives working towards the “Golden Years” of retirement. Little thought was given to becoming more—after all, that’s just how life worked—50 years ago.

Today, things are changing, and personal development is leading the way. Homemakers frequent Anthony Robbin’s seminars. Mark Victor Hansen, along with Jack Canfield, have become household names through their mega-hit series Chicken Soup For The Soul, and millions turn on their televisions every week, to see and hear what advice Dr. Phil will be offering.

Why this sudden urge to experience more out of life than just a paycheck? How are so many learning to become happier, healthier and live more successful lives? The answer is personal development.

Located inside Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, gracing the third pillar to the right, framed and bolted permanently in place, hangs a living testimony to the awesome power of personal development and, perhaps, one of the greatest stories ever told. This original letter with the word “Secret” printed top and bottom in red ink, is now displayed for all the world to see…

My Definite Chief Aim

I, Bruce lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental Super Star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting in 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness. —Bruce Lee, January 1969

Although his life was cut short, Lee lived as he had chosen to live. He created his own story, and right or wrong, lived it to perfection. So, what is The Greatest Story Ever Told? With the power of constant and never-ending improvement, by design, it could be yours!

Therefore, if you too are searching for a bit more out of this thing we call living— design your life, follow your plan, and always remember: You are becoming what you think about.

So what are you thinking about now?

All the best,
