The Strangest Secret

“Happiness is when what you think, say, and do are in harmony” -Gandhi


“THE STRANGEST SECRET” is a classic book written by one of my favorite authors, Earl Nightingale. He was a man described as hungry for knowledge and would frequent libraries to search for answers to some of the questions that he would reflect on. Among many things he pondered on, the main theme he would dwell on would be about success.

“We live today in a golden age.
 This is an era that humanity has looked forward to, 
 dreamed of, 
 and worked toward for thousands of years. 
 We live in the richest era that ever existed
 on the face of the earth”

“A hidden tribe, super athletes, and the greatest race the world has never seen.”

Born to Run talks about the science of running and how recent decades have taught scientists that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong.

As the author uncovers the secrets of the tribe, he also discovers his own latent talents, something each of us has been gifted, of varying degrees.

Speaking of Born to Run, I do believe Springsteen had something to say about that.
