It’s odd to think that you could be motivated and inspired by an old book written in 1897. The classic, “Architects Of Fate or Steps to Success and Power” was written by Orison Swett Marden and is considered to be one of the most excellent motivational books ever written.

Students have been inspired by Marden’s work on the power of positive thinking theory which was later made popular by the famous author and motivational expert, Norman Vincent Peale.
If you think you’ve read and heard all the information about positive thinking that’s available, think again. Marden brings the power of positive thinking to a new level by simplifying the process.
Orison Swett Marden believed that we each have an ‘inherent force and energy that compels things to turn out as we desire’ and that we will find a way to achieve success if we cultivate that force and energy within.
As you read “Architects Of Fate,” you’ll realize that you know or have heard of people who adhere to Marden’s concept. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Tony Robbins and many more successful people in our own time have used Marden’s teachings to become successful in their own lives.
“Be larger than your task,” is one element that Marden injects into his book that makes you think. So often, we simply complete a task at hand and don’t think past it. When it’s done, it’s over – and we quickly forget about it and go on to the next task. When we pay close attention to what we’re doing or thinking many more doors can open to future successes.
“Architects Of Fate” puts a new spin on the powers we have to become successful – even though the book was written many years ago. It’s always good to revisit a concepts origin to help us understand it better, and Marden’s writings are worth taking another look at.
