Is It Money, Fame, Power, Contentment, Personality, Peace of Mind, Happiness?
The Thirteen Steps to Riches described in this book offer the shortest dependable philosophy
of individual achievement ever presented for the benefit of the man or woman who is
searching for a definite goal in life.
Before beginning the book you will profit greatly if you recognize the fact that the book was
not written to entertain. You cannot digest the contents properly in a week or a month. After
reading the book thoroughly, Dr. Miller Reese Hutchison, nationally known Consulting
Engineer and long-time associate of Thomas A. Edison, said- "This is not a novel. It is a
textbook on individual achievement that came directly from the experiences of hundreds of
America's most successful men. It should be studied, digested, and meditated upon. No more
than one chapter should be read in a single night. The reader should underline the sentences
which impress him most. Later, he should go back to these marked lines and read them again.
A real student will not merely read this book, he will absorb its contents and make t...
IN EVERY chapter of this book, mention has been made of the money-making secret which
has made fortunes for more than five hundred exceedingly wealthy men whom I have
carefully analyzed over a long period of years.
The secret was brought to my attention by Andrew Carnegie, more than a quarter of a
century ago. The canny, lovable old Scotsman carelessly tossed it into my mind, when I was
but a boy. Then he sat back in his chair, with a merry twinkle in his eyes, and watched
carefully to see if I had brains enough to understand the full significance of what he had said
to me.
When he saw that I had grasped the idea, he asked if I would be willing to spend twenty
years or more, preparing myself to take it to the world, to men and women who, without the
secret, might go through life as failures. I said I would, and with Mr. Carnegie's cooperation,
I have kept my promise.
This book contains the secret, after having been put to a practical test by thousands of people,
in almost every walk of life. It was Mr. Carnegie's idea that the magic formula, which gave
him a stupendous fortune, ought to be placed within reach of people who do not have time to
investigate how men make money, and it was his hope that I might test and demonstrate the
soundness of the formula through the experience of men and women in every calling.
He believed the formula should be taught in all public schools and colleges, and expressed
the opinion that if it were properly taught it would so revolutionize the entire educational
system that the time spent in school could be reduced to less than half.
His experience with Charles M. Schwab, and other young men of Mr. Schwab's type,
convinced Mr. Carnegie that much of that which is taught in the schools is of no value
whatsoever in connection with the business of earning a living or accumulating riches. He
had arrived at this decision, because he had taken into his business one young man after
another, many of them with but little schooling, and by coaching them in the use of this
formula, developed in them rare leadership. Moreover, his coaching made fortunes for
everyone of them who followed his instructions. In the chapter on Faith, you will read the
astounding story of the organization of the giant United States Steel Corporation, as it was
conceived and carried out by one of the young men through whom Mr. Carnegie proved that
his formula will work for all who are ready for it. This single application of the secret, by that
young man-Charles M. Schwab-made him a huge fortune in both money and
OPPORTUNITY. Roughly speaking, this particular application of the formula was worth six
hundred million dollars. These facts-and they are facts well known to almost everyone who
knew Mr. Carnegie-give you a fair idea of what the reading of this book may bring to you,
Even before it had undergone twenty years of practical testing, the secret was passed on to
more than one hundred thousand men and women who have used it for their personal benefit,
as Mr. Carnegie planned that they should. Some have made fortunes with it. Others have
used it successfully in creating harmony in their homes. A clergyman used it so effectively
that it brought him an income of upwards of $75,000.00 a year.
Arthur Nash, a Cincinnati tailor, used his near-bankrupt business as a "guinea pig" on which
to test the formula. The business came to life and made a fortune for its owners. It is still
thriving, although Mr. Nash has gone. The experiment was so unique that newspapers and
magazines, gave it more than a million dollars' worth of laudatory publicity.
The secret was passed on to Stuart Austin Wier, of Dallas, Texas. He was ready for it-so
ready that he gave up his profession and studied law. Did he succeed? That story is told too.
I gave the secret to Jennings Randolph, the day he graduated from College, and he has used it
so successfully that he is now serving his third term as a Member of Congress, with an
excellent opportunity to keep on using it until it carries him to the White House.
While serving as Advertising Manager of the La-Salle Extension University, when it was
little more than a name, I had the privilege of seeing J. G. Chapline, President of the
University, use the formula so effectively that he has since made the LaSalle one of the great
extension schools of the country.
The secret to which I refer has been mentioned no fewer than a hundred times, throughout
this book. It has not been directly named, for it seems to work more successfully when it is
merely uncovered and left in sight, where THOSE WHO ARE READY, and SEARCHING
FOR IT, may pick it up. That is why Mr. Carnegie tossed it to me so quietly, without giving
me its specific name.
If you are READY to put it to use, you will recognize this secret at least once in every
ter. I wish I mi
