Achieve your goals: Fulfill your dreams with help from classic self-help thinkers. If you’ve ever set a goal for yourself and then stood helplessly watching it slip away, this is the book for you. Whatever you want to accomplish in life, you must take charge of your dreams, create a plan, and adhere to it. It is a widespread problem that has existed for hundreds of years. The first of the books from which we sought advice was published in the mid-eighteenth century, and the most recent nearly two hundred years later. Both of these and the other five books we’ve read remain astonishingly relevant. Achieve your goals incorporates concepts from the best-selling Infinite Success series. This series reimagines the most significant ideas from self-help classics, and Achieve your goals contains memorable nuggets of wisdom from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich; Samuel Smiles’ Self-Help; George S. Clason’s The Richest Man in Babylon; Robert Collier’s The Secret of the Ages; Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Self-reliance; and Bertrand Russell’s The Conquest of Happiness. To make these concepts more accessible, we’ve illustrated the classic writers’ thoughts with examples from twenty-first-century life. At the end of each chapter, we’ve included a section titled ‘Here’s an idea for you…’ that contains pointers on how to immediately put the chapter’s ideas into practice.
