What is the meaning of life? What purpose do we serve on this planet? Where did we come from? Are we nothing more than some genetic anomaly or accident? Or were we purposefully designed and given free will by a deity? These questions and more swirl around in our heads as we continue to exist in this dog-eat-dog world. Life can get pretty difficult at times - a difficulty that has nothing to do with the previously aforementioned questions.

The life of the man who is arguably one of the greatest philosophers of his era began in a time when one would not expect such a profound outcome. Born in Los Angeles, California on March 12, 1921, Earl Nightingale´s humble beginnings proved to be an ideal setting. In his prime, he earned the title of the ´´Dean of Personal Development´´, but there was once a time when hopefulness was not a part of his everyday reality. The country´s most inspirational motivational speaker and author was inspired by his meager surroundings. At just 12 years old, Earl witnessed his father walk out on his mother, Gladys ´´Honey´´ Nightingale, and his two brothers. Millions of American citizens were already unemployed and, now, Honey and her three boys joined the ranks of the needy. To support them, she took a job working in a sewing factory at the Works Progress Administration (WPA). At the time, the WPA was credited for developing eight million jobs for the unemployed and distributing clothes, food, and housing to the poor.
