Make the most of your life - by Douglas Ellsworth

Make the most of your life 

Make the most of your life



This book aims to show and prove that the reader need not be a "brain" (in the movie sense) to make the most of his life. It gives him ways and means of using to the utmost what talents and opportunities he now has. 

The book offers scores of real-life incIdents to show personality in action and to break down theories into practical, workable pointers and formulas that anyone can use if he wants to. This breaking down from theory into practice is done by a practical man who has seen it done by others and has practiced it himself and knows that it works, why it works and how it works.

 When the author writes about how to develop creative imagination he is writing from his experience of 25 years with people who thrive on their creative imaginations. When he writes about how to make a plan, test it, and make it work, he has boiled down the essentials that he has personally used as the basis for his planning in making several successful enterprises work. 


If you would make the most of your life you have to know what you want, and what you have, and go after what you want with all you have to offer. Lurton makes this a real adventure and points the way to an appraisal and practical application of your ambition, initiative, originality, perseverance, enthu- siasm and other personality factors. 

He emphasizes and makes vivid the fundamental principles on which achievement is based in any walk of life, so that you may learn to draw more fully on your capabilities.
