The message you are about to hear was written and recorded on a record in 1956 by Earl Nightingale. This message is the answer to the question that he had been searching for from the time he was about nine years old.

Earl Nightingale had been born in economically-depressed times. As a child, because they were so poor, Earl desperately wanted to know why some people grew up to enjoy prosperity while others, like his family, struggled merely to survive Unable to find the answers to his questions from grownups, Earl began reading everything he could believing that someone, somewhere had the answer.

Many years past, and when Earl was 35 years old, he wrote and recorded this message. It was to be played one Saturday morning to a small group of salesmen during his absence. When Earl returned, he learned that the message had made such a positive impact on the men they wanted copies to share with their friends and family.

Earl arranged with Columbia Records to duplicate the record to meet the too many requests. Much to Earl’s surprise, in very little time without any real advertising or marketing, over a million copies had been sold. And he received a gold record. Earl called the message, The Strangest Secret. And this single recording was the seedling from which the entire personal development industry grew, and because Earl had discovered the true meaning of the strangest secret which determines the outcome of one’s life, he went from poverty to become one of the most highly recognized voices and names throughout the United States and from the West Indies to South Africa.
