What could you accomplish if you knew for a fact that you would succeed at anything you set out to do?
This is the formula which Dorothea Brande discovered for herself, and by applying it changed her life from one where she considered herself to be a personal failure into one of being a noted success.
Her book, “Becoming A Writer” is still in print today, and is held as a cornerstone book for beginning authors to absorb while they master the disciplines of writing fiction – or anything else. And her experiences in teaching a class of fiction writers was “grist for the mill” as she studied success itself.
I ran into Brande’s “Wake Up and Live!” when tracing the influence of Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”. Earl Nightingale found a copy of Hill’s book and went on to yet another success, crediting Hill for the positive influence. In Nightingale’s subsequent Gold recording “The Strangest Secret”, he mentions “Wake Up and Live” as a key book to study.
And is it ever a study for anyone and everyone… While it reads well (she is an exceptional writer) it also simply brings the basics of affirmation and self-esteem training to the forefront. It’s easy to follow and not didactic – but is based on serious studies into how people tick and what motivates them to either succeed or fail in their life-journey.
This collection shows the real-world application of what Brande had uncovered that fateful day. It shows how she applied her single motto, “Act As If It Were Impossible to Fail” to her own life.
And thousands, if not millions of budding writers have her to thank for it.
Being able to study these two books in one volume gives all of us the chance to improve our lives immeasurably from here on out.
This collection of her two bestselling books now gives you the chance to study both cause and effect of discovery not just on her life, but on her readers’ and students’ as well.
