Earl Nightingale said many years ago:
One hour per day of study in your chosen field is all it takes. One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years, you’ll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of the best people in the world at what you do.
If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Nightingale, he was a famed radio broadcaster and motivational speaker. As a Depression-era child, Earl Nightingale was hungry for knowledge. From the time he was a young boy, he would frequent the Long Beach Public Library in California, searching for the answer to the question, “How can a person, starting from scratch, who has no particular advantage in the world, reach the goals that he feels are important to him, and by so doing, make a major contribution to others?” His desire to find an answer, coupled with his natural curiosity about the world and its workings, spurred him to become one of the world’s foremost experts on success and what makes people successful.
Throughout his life, Earl Nightingale explored the subjects of meaningful existence, motivation, and human character, and all his works primarily take their inspiration from these topics. In the ’50s, Nightingale played the voice of ‘Sky King’. He also worked as a radio host at WGN for over half a decade.
Earl Nightingale remained a follower and disciple of Napoleon Hill all his life. It is said that the great American radio speaker attained his enlightenment in 1949, at the age of 29, while perusing Hill’s ‘Think And Grow Rich.’ Such was the book’s influence on his life that later, in the ’60s, Nightingale published its audio version.
Earl Nightingale’s incomparable contribution to the radio industry earned him a position in the National Speakers Association Speaker Hall of Fame in 1976 and The National Association of Broadcasters National Radio Hall of Fame in 1985. In addition, Nightingale’s book ‘Earl Nightingale’s Greatest Discovery’ won the Napoleon Hill Gold Medal for Literary Excellency.
