Au XVIIIe siècle vécut en France un homme qui compta parmi les personnages les plus généreux et les plus horribles de son époque. Il s'appelait Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. Sa naissance, son enfance furent épouvantables et tout autre que lui n'aurait pas survécu. Mais, Grenouille n'avait besoin que d'un minimum de nourriture et de vêtements, et son âme n'avait besoin de rien. Ce monstre de Grenouille, car il s'agissait bel et bien d'un genre de monstre, avait un don, ou plutôt un nez unique au monde et il entendait bien devenir, même par les moyens plus atroces, le Dieu tout-puissant de l'univers, car "qui maîtrisait les odeurs, maîtrisait le cur des hommes". C'est son histoire abominable... et drolatique qui nous est racontée dans Le parfum, un roman qui, dès sa parution, eut un succès extraordinaire et est devenu très vite un best-seller mondial.

Jim Whitaker, the first American to climb Mt. Everest, once said: You can never conquer the mountain. You can only conquer yourself. Yet, when the vast majority of people encounter obstacles to their goals, or difficulties on the journey of life, they tend to put their focus on the mountain - things that they cannot control, things outside of themselves - rather than turning inward, taking responsibility and conquering the self. That process of conquering the self is another name for that priceless quality of personality we call self-discipline. And, in this priceless collection of great ideas in sound from the world leader in personal development, Nightingale-Conant, you will be provided with all of the essential tools of self-discipline to conquer the self in every major arena of life. Welcome to The Ultimate Self-Discipline Library: How to Eliminate Excuses and Take Charge of Your Life! In this 10-volume library, you will hear some of the best ideas on self-discipline published by Nightingale-Conant over the past 50 years. Youll learn: how to build self-disciplined habits, how to develop beliefs that support a self-disciplined life, how to be disciplined in several areas of your life like your goal achievement, time management, financial success, career success, and health and wellness. And youll learn how discipline can even help you savor the fruits of your labor - such as a lifestyle of simplicity and happiness. Best of all, youll discover that developing self-discipline need not be a laborious, tedious, and long process. Rather youll find that self-discipline can be an exciting adventure where you steer your life in the direction you want to go. And remember what William Feather once said: If we dont discipline ourselves, the world will do it for us.

I'd like to take you with me on such a voyage of the mind. One that was charted for me many years ago by an obscure, 19th-century English editor and poet named James Allen. His most popular book, As a Man Thinketh, speaks poetically to some mystic quality of each of us, a quality that discerns truth. Just listen to these poems, which are the beginning and end pieces of As a Man Thinketh: "Mind is the master power that molds and makes, and man is mind, and evermore he takes the tool of thought and shaping what he wills, brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills. He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass environment is but his looking glass." And finally, "Tempest tossed souls, wherever you may be, under whatsoever conditions you may live, know this: in the ocean of life the isles of blessedness are smiling. The sunny shore of your ideal awaits your coming. Keep your hand firmly on the helm of thought. In the bark of your soul reclines the commanding master. He does but sleep. Wake him. Self-control is strength. Thought is mastery. Calmness is power. Say onto your heart peace. Be still." Now you may say, That's all very well. I appreciate poetry and I believe in truth, but is it relevant to my personal situation, or at least to the times in which I live? Im here to tell you: Yes, it is. What was true in the 19th century is still true today. And Im going to share many words from James Allens As a Man Thinketh, to show you how.

Earl Nightingale presents this re-enactment of what the Declaration of Independence really means and the price men were willing to pay to establish freedom for us all. Informative, inspirational, and especially appropriate for the Fourth of July! About Earl Nightingale: As a Depression-era child, Earl Nightingale was hungry for knowledge. From the time he was a young boy, he would frequent the Long Beach Public Library in California, searching for the answer to the question, "How can a person, starting from scratch, who has no particular advantage in the world, reach the goals that he feels are important to him, and by so doing, make a major contribution to others?" His desire to find an answer, coupled with his natural curiosity about the world and its workings spurred him to become one of the world's foremost experts on success and what makes people successful. Earl Nightingale's early career began when, as a member of the Marine Corps, he volunteered to work at a local radio station as an announcer. The Marines also gave him a chance to travel, although he only got as far as Hawaii when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941. Earl managed to be one of the few survivors aboard the battleship Arizona. After five more years in the service, Earl and his wife moved first to Phoenix then Chicago to build what was to be a very fruitful career in network radio. As the host of his own daily commentary program on WGN, Earl Nightingale arranged a deal that also gave him a commission on his own advertising sales. By 1957, he was so successful, he decided to retire at the age of 35. In the meantime, Earl had bought his own insurance company and had spent many hours motivating its sales force to greater accomplishments. When he decided to go on vacation for an extended period of time, his sales manager begged him to put his inspirational words on record. The result later became the recording entitled The Strangest Secret, the first spoken word message to win a Gold Record by selling over a million copies. In The Strangest Secret, Earl had found an answer to the question that had inspired him as a youth and, in turn, found a way to leave a lasting legacy for others About this time, Earl met a successful businessman by the name of Lloyd Conant and together they began an "electronic publishing" company which eventually grew to become a multi-million-dollar giant in the self-improvement field. They also developed a syndicated, five-minute daily radio program, Our Changing World, which became the longest-running, most widely syndicated show in radio.

"If you understand completely what I am going to tell you, from this moment on, your life will never be the same again." -Earl Nightingale This amazing message was first played for a group of salespeople at Earl Nightingale's insurance agency. They were utterly electrified. Word of it spread like wildfire, and everyone who heard it was positively ignited into action. Requests for a recording of the message came pouring in - thousands of requests per week. Within no time, more than 200,000 people had called, written, or just walked right into Earl's office to request a copy. As years went by, that number soared above 1,000,000. Today, more than 40 years later, The Strangest Secret remains one of the most powerful and influential messages ever recorded. It continues to transform the lives of everyone who hears and heeds it.
