He was the voice in the early 1950s of Sky King, the hero of a radio adventure series, and was a WGN radio show host from 1950 to 1956. Nightingale was the author of the Strangest Secret, which economist Terry Savage has called “…One of the great motivational books of all time“. When Nightingale was seventeen he joined the United States Marines. He was on the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor and was one of twelve surviving Marines on board that day.

During his lifetime, Nightingale wrote and recorded over 7,000 radio programs, 250 audio programs as well as television programs and videos.  See website for more info - http://earlnightingale.com/

Most people tiptoe their way through life, hoping they make it safely to death.
― Earl Nightingale


The paradox is that exactly the reverse is true. Everything that’s really worthwhile in life came to us free; our minds, our souls, our bodies, our hopes, our dreams, our ambitions, our intelligence, our love of family and children and friends and country. All these priceless possessions are free.
But the things that cost us money are actually very cheap and can be replaced at any time. A good man can be completely wiped out and make another fortune. He can do that several times. Even if our home burns down, we can rebuild it. But the things we got for nothing, we can never replace.
― Earl Nightingale

Do, each day, all that can be done that day. You don't need to overwork-or to rush blindly into your work, trying to do the greatest possible number of things in the shortest possible amount of time. Don't try to do tomorrow's-or next week's-work today. It's not so much the number of the things you do but the quality, the efficiency of each separate action that counts. . . . you need only to succeed in the small tasks of each day. This makes a successful day. With enough of these, you have a successful week, month, year-and lifetime.
― Earl Nightingale


Be positive, cheerful, grateful and expectant.
― Earl Nightingale


Ask yourself every morning, ‘how can I increase my service today?’

― Earl Nightingale


Whatever the majority of people is doing, under any given circumstances, if you do the exact opposite, you will probably never make another mistake as long as you live.

These people get to the top because they have to, because inside them burns a dream too big, too ever present, too demanding to be denied.

― Earl Nightingale


Our attitude towards others determines their attitude towards us.

― Earl Nightingale


No man can get rich himself unless he enriches others.
― Earl Nightingale


Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people. Every dollar we will ever earn must come from people. The person we love, and with whom we want to spend the rest of our life, is a human being with whom we must interact. Our children are individuals, each different from any other person who ever lived. And what affects them most is our attitude-the loving kindness they see and feel whenever we are around them. If you'll begin to develop and maintain an attitude that says yes to life and the world, you'll be astonished at the changes you'll see.

― Earl Nightingale


People with goals succeed because they know where they're going.
― Earl Nightingale

― Earl Nightingale


All you have to do is hold your goal before you and everything else will take care of itself.
― Earl Nightingale


Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitude and expectations. If we feel that our environment could stand some improvement, we can bring about that change for the better by improving our attitude. The world plays no favorites. It's impersonal. It doesn't care who succeeds and who fails. Nor does it care if we change. Our attitude toward life doesn't affect the world and the people in it nearly as much as it affects us.
― Earl Nightingale


One thing a goal must do is fill us with positive emotion when we think about it. The more intensely we feel about a goal the more progressively we’ll move toward it.

― Earl Nightingale


For a person to build a rich and rewarding life for himself, there are certain qualities and bits of knowledge that he needs to acquire. There are also things, harmful attitudes, superstitions, and emotions that he needs to chip away. A person needs to chip away everything that doesn't look like the person he or she most wants to become.
― Earl Nightingale


We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
― Earl Nightingale


It's difficult for people to come to the understanding that only a small minority of the people ever really get the word about life, about living abundantly and successfully. Success in the important departments of life seldom comes naturally, no more naturally than success at anything-a musical instrument, sports, fly-fishing, tennis, golf, business, marriage, parenthood, landscape gardening. But somehow people wait passively for success to come to them, living as other people are living in the unspoken, tacit assumption that other people know how to live successfully.
― Earl Nightingale


Throughout all history, the great wise men and teachers, philosophers, and prophets have disagreed with one another on many different things. It is only on this one point that they are in complete and unanimous agreement. We become what we think about

― Earl Nightingale


Most very successful people can remember that their success was discovered and built out of adversity of some kind.

― Earl Nightingale


Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now.
― Earl Nightingale


Don't catch the bad and infectious attitudes of others.
― Earl Nightingale


We become what we think about most of the time, and that's the strangest secret.
― Earl Nightingale


If honesty did not exist, it would have to be invented, as it is the surest way of getting rich.
― Earl Nightingale


Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.
― Earl Nightingale


Picture yourself in your minds eye as having already achieved this goal. See yourself doing the things you'll be doing when you've reached your goal.
― Earl Nightingale


We can help others in the world more by making the most of yourself than in any other way. We must be the epitome-the embodiment-of success. We must radiate success before it will come to us. We must first become mentally, from an attitude standpoint, the people we wish to become. We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.
― Earl Nightingale


Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future.
― Earl Nightingale


We are all creatures of habit. We can do most things without even thinking about them; our bodies take charge and do them for us.
― Earl Nightingale


The strangest secret in the world is that you become what you think about.
― Earl Nightingale


We tend to live up to our expectations.
― Earl Nightingale


We tend to minimize the things we can do, the goals we can accomplish, and for some equally strange reason we think other people can accomplish things that we cannot.

― Earl Nightingale


If we can augment our gift giving by giving more of ourselves to those we love, all the time and in various ways, we will have a good chance of helping them and ourselves live happier, better lives.

About 95% of people can be compared to ships without rudders. Subject to every shift of wind and tide, they're helplessly adrift. And while they fondly hope that they'll one day drift into a rich and successful port, you and I know that for every narrow harbor entrance, there are a 1,000 miles of rocky coastline. The chances against their drifting into port are 1,000 to one.
― Earl Nightingale


Mistakes are a natural part of growing up. They're to be expected and made light of. But children bloom like spring flowers under praise. They want so much to be noticed and appreciated, to excel and have that excellence noticed.
― Earl Nightingale


You become what you continually think about.
― Earl Nightingale


Luck is when preparedness meets opportunity.
― Earl Nightingale


But the 3% who have taken the time and exercised the discipline to decide on a destination and to chart a course sail straight and far across the deep oceans of life, reaching one port after another and accomplishing more in just a few years than the rest accomplish in a lifetime.
― Earl Nightingale


Your rewards in life are in direct proportion to your service
― Earl Nightingale


Security isn't what the wise person looks for; it's opportunity. And once we begin looking for that, we find it on every side. You can measure opportunity with the same yardstick that measures the risk involved. They go together.
― Earl Nightingale


Executive ability is deciding quickly and getting somebody else to do the work.
― Earl Nightingale


Some people act as if it were demeaning to their manhood to wish to be well-read but you can no more be a healthy person mentally without reading substantial books than you can be a vigorous person physically without eating solid food. Books should be chosen, not for their freedom from evil, but for their possession of good. Dr. Johnson said: "Whilst you stand deliberating which book your son shall read first, another boy has read both."
― Earl Nightingale


Men credited with all kinds of ability, talent, brains and know how, including the ability to see into the future, frequently have nothing more than the courage to keep everlastingly at what they set out to do. They have that one great quality that is worth more than all the rest put together. They simply will not give up! When a man makes up his mind to do something then it's only a matter of time. Staying with time take bulldog persistence. This seems to be the entrance examination to success - lasting success -- of any kind!
― Earl Nightingale


There are times for all of us when all the laughter seems to be gone, but we should not permit these periods to last too long. When we've lost our sense of humor, there isn't very much left. We become ridiculous. We must then go to war against the whole world, and that's a war we cannot win.
― Earl Nightingale


We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.
― Earl Nightingale

― Earl Nightingale

― Earl Nightingale


Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.
― Earl Nightingale


Most people think they want more money than they really do, and they settle for a lot less than they could get
― Earl Nightingale


To acheive happiness, we should make certain that we are never without an important goal.
― Earl Nightingale


A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.

― Earl Nightingale
