If this video doesn't kick you in the butt nothing will. Earl Nightingale is basically the main reason that self development is as big as it is today. The man is a genius, please let me know what you think of this video.

    Yeah, I love his voice. He could recite the alphabet and make it sound interesting. I didn't watch the video because I have seen it many times, and have an MP3 of it to listen to anytime, but if this isn't the full tale, I think I remember there being a parts II and III on YouTube as well. Maybe this one is a different copy.

      I love his voice and also how he makes his message so simple and engrossing. Complicated, anyone can make it. Simple, you need to be a genius to pull it off.

    Ha, I remember Earl Nightingale. His voice is incredible, he reminds me of the movie-trailer guy Don LaFontaine, another awesome voice!

    I'm also a big fan of Earl Nightingale. He did incredibly thorough research, then turned complex ideas into very easy to understand, step by step guides to life. Great storyteller with a wonderful rich voice.

    Coming soon to a phonograph near you... summer 1956... an Earl Nightingale production starring your own attitude...

      Thanks for the share.
      Nightingale is big on repetition, so that's great. He says to review his "strangest secret" every 30 days in fact.

        I find myself listening/reading several books over and over again. It really is impossible to fully understand it until it is plastered in your brain. Don't you agree?

          Yep, same here. Not only because you don't everything the first time, but also because of the inspirational value. You have to keep firing yourself up, at least I do, or I get lazy.

    Hello:

    The full version is on the net.

    This clears up one mystery for me. I used to hear his short commentaries on the radio for years, but I never knew who "Earl Nightingale" was. Having the "Who are you?" and "Why should I listen to you?" questions go unanswered definitely decreased the credibility of his statements with me. In other words, I did not pay much attention.

    Now, with web addresses and resource boxes, it is much easier for marketers to answer those two crucial questions.

      Thanks for posting the full length, it is so important that we understand many of these concepts. This man was the master of thinking outside the box, he really was one of the big dogs early on.
