The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz

The Magic of Thinking Big (1959) unveils why believing in ourselves is a pivotal key to success, and how we’re each capable of achieving any of the goals we’ve always dreamed of. The author’s methodology is supported by his work as a professor and leadership counselor, as well as by his innumerable interactions with people and businesses that have seen both sides of the success-failure coin.

  • Anyone who wants to know how successful people become successful
  • Anyone who’s interested in achieving their goals – whether short term or lifelong
  • Anyone who wants a method for sustaining long-term happiness

David J. Schwartz (1927-1987) was a professor at Georgia State University and president of the leadership consulting firm Creative Educational Services. Throughout his life he gave motivational lectures to nearly 3,000 sales companies, trade associations and management conferences.
