A Message to Garcia

by Elbert Hubbard

A Message to Garcia

Elbert Hubbard

Overview

What can a war experience teach you about how to be happier at work and life? Well, let us tell you a little story of one man who exemplified what it takes to make a difference.

It's the year 1898 and the Spanish-American War is in full swing. The US president wants to recruit Cuban insurgents to help his cause. Obtaining this support would require a dangerous mission to deliver the message to a leader named Calixto Garcia. Stepping up to the occasion, a man by the name of Andrew Rowan used his positive attitude and work ethic to succeed in this difficult mission.

That's where the title of A Message to Garcia comes from. This book will teach you how to utilize the same skills and attitude that Rowan had toward his cause to improve your happiness at work and in life.

"Character is the result of two things: mental attitude and the way we spend our time. It is what we think and what we do that make us who we are."
