The writing of this book has taken many years of work, reading, teaching, and experience. Many people have contributed to my thinking and have been invisible guides as these chapters came together. I would like to first thank my friend Mark Victor Hansen, who introduced me many years ago to Emmet Fox, perhaps the finest spiritual thinker of the twentieth century. Ernest Holmes, founder of Science of Mind, opened my eyes and heart to the incredible universe of potential contained within each person when they changed their thinking and changed their lives. Great spiritual teachers such as Charles Fillmore, Neville, Eric Butterworth, Wayne Dyer, and Roberto Assagioli have had a profound influence on my thinking.

I would also like to thank those great practical thinkers on success who have had such a wonderful influence on me—and on the world—such as Napoleon Hill, Maxwell Maltz, Claude Bristol, David Schwarz, W. Clement Stone, Earl Nightingale, Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Dennis Waitley, and Charlie Jones.

Business thinkers such as Peter Drucker, Andrew Grove, Ken Blanchard,Warren Bennis,Tom Peters, Nido Qubein, and Marshall Goldsmith have greatly enriched me with their ideas and insights.

I would like to thank my editor, Matthew Holt of John Wiley & Sons, for his unflinching support of this book, and his constant encouragement over the many months that it has taken to write and edit.

Not least, I thank my wonderful wife Barbara and my fabulous children—Christina, Michael, David, and Catherine—for their support and patience during the long hours away from them to finish this book.
