Orison Swett MardenOrison Swett Marden, (1850 - 1924) was an American writer associated with the New Thought Movement. He founded Success Magazine in 1897 and is considered to be the pioneer of the modern success movement in America. 

Marden's first book, Pushing to the Front, published in 1894, had a phenomenal circulation. His book titles express eloquently his outlook of cheerful optimism and confidence.

“We lift ourselves by our thought; we climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always, everywhere - your ideal of what you long to attain - the ideal of health, efficiency, success.”
