He describes his first book as a book about 'one person's ability to touch another and empower them to help themselves' - no wonder this book struck a chord with me.
He wrote that first book at the age of 55 and went on to write almost a book a year up until his death; with sales of more than 20 million books in his lifetime - this man was and is a legend.
Further proof that it's never to late to achieve a goal, or start something new.
I saw an interview last month with this man and was inspired by his attitude, he knew he was dying and was living his final days exactly the way he wanted to - it was an enlightening interview.
I'd like to leave a legacy like that, be remembered for my contributions to the literary world. Lets face it, the man didn't get started writing until he was 55 - so effectively I have 14 more years to reach legendary status.
To be legendary - you don't have to be rich, you don't even have to be famous. To me being a legend is about being amazing and living your life the best way possible. People want to talk about you or know you because you're simply amazing.
So what are you doing this week to take you one step closer to legendary status?
