Celebrating Seth Godin

Happy Birthday, Seth Godin (7/10/60)!

  • To celebrate, click here to download Seth Godin’s “Brainwashed: 7 Ways to Reinvent Yourself” (Free - No Registration - No Opt-in)
  • And while we’re celebrating with Freebies, follow me on Twitter -- -- and I’ll send you two more Seth Godin books (also Free - No Registration - No Opt-in)

     These Godin books are freely available to share and  are available elsewhere. They are in no way exclusive to this blog and are offered in the spirit of sharing information, not as an inducement to follow me on Twitter or take any other action.

OK, Now that we’ve expanded your library, let’s share some great quotes from one of my favorite marketing gurus:
“The secret to being wrong isn't to avoid being wrong! The secret is being willing to be wrong. The secret is realizing that wrong isn't fatal.”

“Change almost never fails because it's too early. It almost always fails because it's too late.”

“Persistent people are able to visualize the idea of light at the end of the tunnel when others can't see it.”

“In a battle between two ideas, the best one doesn't necessarily win. No, the idea that wins is the one with the most fearless heretic behind it.”

“An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo. And an artist takes it personally.”

“The secret of leadership is simple: Do what you believe in. Paint a picture of the future. Go there. People will follow.”

“If you can’t state your position in eight words, you don’t have a position.”

“People don't believe what you tell them.
They rarely believe what you show them.
They often believe what their friends tell them.
They always believe what they tell themselves.”

“Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don't need to escape from.”

“Don't find customers for your products, find products for your customers.”

“If you are deliberately trying to create a future that feels safe, you will willfully ignore the future that is likely.”

“It’s okay. Let your ego push you to be the initiator. But tell your ego that the best way to get something shipped is to let other people take the credit. The real win for you (and your ego) is seeing something get shipped, not in getting the credit when it does.”

“How dare you settle for less when the world has made it so easy for you to be remarkable?”

Seth Godin has been dubbed "America's Greatest Marketer" by American Way Magazine. He has written fourteen bestselling books -- translated into more than thirty languages – focused on the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything. He writes an incredibly popular blog and his latest company is which Quantcast ranks (by traffic) among the top 125 sites in the US. His Unleashing the Ideavirus was the most popular eBook ever published, and Purple Cow is the bestselling marketing book of the decade.
