If you have ever set yourself a goal and then watched helplessly as it slipped away this is the book for you. Whatever you want to do in life you need to take charge of your dreams, put a plan in place and follow it. It's a common problem and has been for hundreds of years. The first of the books we've sought advice from was published in the mid-eighteenth century, while the most recent one was published nearly two hundred years later. The ideas in both these and the other five books we've turned to are still amazingly relevant. The ideas in Achieve your goals are drawn from best-selling titles in the Infinite Success series. This series takes the most important ideas from self help classics and gives them a contemporary twist, and Achieve your goals contains striking 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; Bertrand Russell's The Conquest of Happiness and Benjamin Franklin's The Way to Wealth. To make these ideas accessible we've illustrated the thoughts of the classic writers with examples drawn from twenty-first century life. In the 'Here's an idea for you' section at the end of every chapter we've also given you some hints on how to put the ideas in that chapter into practice right now.
