The Eight Pillars of Prosperity by James Allen (1864 - 1912).

This project is complete and all audio files can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/the-eight-pillars-of-prosperity-version-2-by-james-allen/
“Prosperity, like a house, is a roof over a man’s head, affording him protection and comfort. A roof presupposes a support, and a support necessitates a foundation. The roof of prosperity, then, is supported by the following eight pillars which are cemented in a foundation of moral consistency:
1. Energy
2. Economy
3. Integrity
4. System
5. Sympathy
6. Sincerity
7. Impartiality
8. Self-reliance
A business built up on the faultless practice of all these principles would be so firm and enduring as to be invincible.” ( James Allen)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=umn.319510017935766&view=1up&seq=7
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    • If you wish, say:

MC and DPL most welcome!

I see that there already is a recording of this book in the catalogue, so this will be a second version.

Thank you!

Thank you for listening! I'm not waiting on you, just going a bit slowly right now. :) I have 2 recorded and I need to do a bit more editing before uploading.
