The summary for chapter 2 of SOGR says the following:
You may be the poorest person on the continent, be deeply in debt; you may have neither friends, influence, nor resources. but if you begin to do domething in the Certain Way, you must infallibily begin to get rich, for the cause must produce like effect. if you have no capital, you can get capital, if you are in the wrong business, you can get in the right busines; if you are in the wrong location, you can go the right location. You can do so by beginning in your present business and in your present location to do the Certain Way which causes success.
When I read this is gave me hope and I began to organize all my activities around the Certain Way. This change in my life has made a big difference for me.
I have a question. Would like to know what this summary means to the people in our network.

I hope we can generate a discussion here about some of the content in these books that have been the most meaningful to us and have spurred us to take action. For example, the idea of "paying yourself first," even if it is only mostly symbolic when you have little money, is very powerful when practiced consistently.
>Also, I would love to hear more about books that have affected your lives, preferably ones published before 1975. For example, Carnegie does not use the word wealth or rich in his title, but what he teaches in his "How to Win Friends and Influence People" helped make him the richest man in the US.
