Classics for Your Collection: goo.gl/U80LCr --------- P. T. Barnum provides 20 rules for the development of character and for personal success. The advice from P. T. Barnum is simple and ageless. You will find it amazing how more than a century later this book can be both relevant and well written.The book is filled with common sense and wisdom the modern world seems to have forgotten.In a nutshell: there are no shortcuts to wealth, aside from right vocation, good character, and perseverance - and don't forget to advertise.An oversupply of life lessons. Nuggets from the Book "Engage in one kind of business only, and stick to it faithfully until you succeed, or until your experience shows that you should abandon it. A constant hammering on one nail will generally drive it home at last, so that it can be clinched. When a man's undivided attention is centered on one object, his mind will constantly be suggesting improvements of value, which would escape him if his brain was occupied by a dozen different subjects at once. Many a fortune has slipped through a man's fingers because he was engaged in too many occupations at a time. There is good sense in the old caution against having too many irons in the fire at once." Preserve your integrity. It is more precious than diamonds or rubies. Keep thoroughly posted in regard to the transactions of the world. Go on in confidence, study the rules, and above all things, study human nature. You must exercise your caution in laying your plans, but be bold in carrying them out. Idleness breeds bad habits, and clothes a man in rags. The possession of a perfect knowledge of your business is an absolute necessity in order to insure success.

About the Author
Phineas Taylor "P. T." Barnum (July 5, 1810 - April 7, 1891) was an American politician, showman, and businessman remembered for promoting celebrated hoaxes and for founding the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Although Barnum was also an author, publisher, philanthropist, and for some time a politician, he said of himself, "I am a showman by profession...and all the gilding shall make nothing else of me", and his personal aim was "to put money in his own coffers". Barnum is widely, but erroneously, credited with coining the phrase "There's a sucker born every minute". Born in Bethel, Connecticut, Barnum became a small-business owner in his early twenties, and founded a weekly newspaper, before moving to New York City in 1834. He embarked on an entertainment career, first with a variety troupe called "Barnum's Grand Scientific and Musical Theater", and soon after by purchasing Scudder's American Museum, which he renamed after himself. Barnum used the museum as a platform to promote hoaxes and human curiosities such as the Feejee mermaid and General Tom Thumb. In 1850 he promoted the American tour of singer Jenny Lind, paying her an unprecedented $1,000 a night for 150 nights. Barnum served two terms in the Connecticut legislature in 1865 as a Republican for Fairfield. With the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution over slavery and African-American suffrage, Barnum spoke before the legislature and said, "A human soul, 'that God has created and Christ died for, ' is not to be trifled with. It may tenant the body of a Chinaman, a Turk, an Arab or a Hottentot - it is still an immortal spirit". The circus business was the source of much of his enduring fame. He established "P. T. Barnum's Grand Traveling Museum, Menagerie, Caravan & Hippodrome", a traveling circus, menagerie and museum of "freaks", which adopted many names over the years. Barnum died in his sleep at home in 1891, and was buried in Mountain Grove Cemetery, Bridgeport, which he designed himself.
