The secret of Success William Walker AtkinsonThe Secret of Success By William Walker Atkinson

The Secret of Success is one of the most influential books written on the subject of attaining success that was first published in 1908 by William Walker Atkinson. Atkinson focuses on the actual attainment of success because although everyone’s definition of success may be different, the common ground is the attainment of each one’s particular goal. The key point to this book is that of “individuality”.

Atkinson sums it up best when he states that:

“Each and every person must work out his own Success, along the lines of his own Individuality, instead of along some cut-and-dried plan. And right here is where the ‘Secret of Success’ comes in. ‘Along the lines of his own individuality,’ we have just said – then it must follow that one must possess Individuality before he may work along its lines. And in the measure that he possesses Individuality, so will he possess the first prerequisite to Success. And that is what we mean by ‘The Secret of Success’ – INDIVIDUALITY.”

    If you want to achieve something you want in life you have to do three things. Set the outcome which you desire, create a plan and take consistent action that will get you closer to that which you desire.

      I agree with you on that one.Setting a desirable outcome of what you want in life is very important.However,you also need to align your life with doing what you love doing.
