This 100-year-old, nearly-forgotten book one of the most inspiring books I’ve read all year.

It’s called An Iron Will, by Orison Swett Marden, and it first came out in 1901(!), becoming quite popular and helping to shape the entire self-help movement of the early twentieth century.

You know people like Tony Robbins, Dale Carnegie, Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, etc…

Well they were ALL heavily influenced by Orison Swett Marden.

An Iron Will is phenomenal — just beautifully written and powerful — and below, I’m going to share a few of the Key Ideas, Action Steps, etc. so you can decide whether you want to read the whole thing for yourself.

And in case you missed it, I published a new YouTube video where I tell you:
