This was the first self development book that I ever read and this was when I was about 15-16, maybe even 17.. I loved it!

This book has been the most memorable and biggest life impact book I have ever read. Originally read in my mid twenties. Reading it again at 50!
I read Seeds of Greatness by Denis Waitley many years ago.
He reviews ten simple "secrets" for living a happy and successful life. His chapter titles are:
The Seed of Self-Esteem
The Seed of Creativity
The Seed of Responsibility
The Seed of Wisdom
The Seed of Purpose
The Seed of Communication
The Seed of Faith
The Seed of Adaptability
The Seed of Perseverance
The Seed of Perspective

It's a real classic!

"Seeds of Greatness" lists ten secrets of success, simply presented in an upbeat format. Tips include thinking positive, believing in yourself, perseverance, being kind and learning from life. The book shares inspiring anadotes of people who have overcome incredible odds, such Wilma the Olympic gold medalist who wore leg braces as a child. Easy, enhancing read

The principles of this book are true, but the writing and attitudes are dated.
