Joe Cirulli will tell you that reading The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale was a life changing experience that propelled him to set a goal of becoming the best salesperson in the 10 club fitness company he worked for; he achieved that goal in 3 months. But when the company went bankrupt and his pay cheque bounced the 21 year old Cirulli used the deposit on his apartment to make his car payment, and for the next few months he slept in fitness clubs and his car. At one point, he went to buy a Diet Coke at McDonald's and discovered he had just 12 cents to his name. Finally, he landed a job at a new Gainesville health club -- and read another book, Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill. From Hill, Cirulli learned that the secret of success lies in knowing what you want. He proceeded to take out a legal pad and write down 10 goals, One of those goals was to own a health club in Gainesville. Today he owns a chain of health clubs that have been rated the best in the US and 4th in the world.
