9780960241606: I Dare You!

Description:
I Dare You! is the expression of William H. Danforth's personal philosophy of "Four-square" personal development. Much more than a primer on the mechanics of balanced success, I Dare You! is a riveting and motivational incitement to action. This brief book will provide you with the roadmap for success as well as a jolt of energy encouraging you to follow that path and fulfill your potential!

William H. Danforth (1870-1956) was the founder of the Ralston Purina Company. He also established the American Youth Foundation. I Dare You!, perhaps Danforth’s best known book, is his expression of the Four-square life. His focus on developing a person’s Physical life, Mental life, Relationships, and Character has guided many people to “dare” to achieve real success, both in business and in life.

William Danforth’s message resonates with the core beliefs of Lee Resources International (LRI). Clients of LRI have seen measurable improvements in their businesses and their people’s performance. They have been encouraged and equipped to surpass their ‘personal best’ while maintaining a balanced life.

Product Description:

American entrepreneur and philanthropist WILLIAM H. DANFORTH (1870-1956) is most famous for founding the Ralston Purina Company, but he also helped launch the American Youth Foundation in 1925 as a resource for spurring kids to becoming the best they can be. The spirit of his can-do philosophy is encapsulated here, in this cheerful and inspiring guide to being a creative, adventurous, magnetic, successful, daring person at any age. For decades, I Dare You!-with its honest, heartfelt advice and entertaining and enlightening anecdotes-has encouraged and motivated children and adults alike to take control of their lives and become the happy, fulfilled people they've always dreamed of being. As relevant and necessary today as it was when it was first published more than 70 years ago, this is a book to treasure and to share.

Product Description:

From the foreword by G.M. Philpott: Those of us who have been associated with Mr. Danforth in business know that this Dare idea works. Practically all of the leaders in his great organization were boys who came from humble surroundings and were dared by him to high accomplishments. He has dared most by his own daring example. Mr. Danforth gives the best that is in him, whether he is guiding a great industry, traveling in a remote corner of the world, shooting ducks or playing with his grandchildren. The day ahead is always the most thrilling day in his life. The job at hand is always the most important one he has ever undertaken. He never gives less than his best.
