FOREWORD

Those of us who were associated with Mr. Danforth in business know this Dare idea works. Practically all the leaders in his great organization were boys who came from humble surroundings and were dared by him to high accomplishments. He dared most by his own daring example. Mr. Danforth always gave the best that was in him, whether he was guiding a great industry, traveling in a remote corner of the world, shooting ducks or playing with his grandchildren. The day ahead was always the most thrilling day in his life. The job at hand was always the most important one he had ever undertaken. He never gave less than his best.

Several years ago Mr. Danforth published ”I Dare You” in a limited first edition for the benefit of his business, family and personal friends. Each book passed many times from one person to another. The idea spread and affected people of all ages and in all walks of life. In one case, ”I Dare You” inspired the sale of over $5,000,000 worth of insurance in a special day of the Life Underwriters’ Association. The demand from sales managers, Y. M. C. A. secretaries, business executives, college organizations, vocational teachers, personnel workers, preachers—everyone whose aim it is to challenge men and women to superior accomplishment—soon exhausted the early editions. Now comes the seventeenth edition revised and improved. ”I Dare You” is in its second printing in Canada. Here is more than a book. It is a working pattern of life written out of a pioneer business man’s own rich experience. It is the challenge for which Today’s Youth is waiting. It is a practical plan for action for everybody who wants to go somewhere and be somebody.
G. M. PHILPOTT

AUTHOR’S PREFACE

I agree that a business man should stick to business. But a proven four-fold program, plus a love for Youth, plus an inner urge—all dare me to write this book.

”I Dare You” is for the daring few who are headed somewhere. Those afraid to Dare might as well pass it up. It will weary the lazy because it calls for immediate action. It will bore the sophisticated, and amuse the skeptics. It will antagonize others. Some will not even know what it is all about. It will not be over popular because it calls for courage, swift and daring. But in the eyes of you, one of the priceless few, I trust will come a gleam of battle as you read on. You can be a bigger person than you are and I am going to prove it to you.

I am indebted beyond measure to Gordon M. Philpott who has been of inestimable help in the writing and editing of ”I Dare You.” His keen insight, his rare judgment and his frank criticisms have helped make this book a labor of love instead of a drab task. I honor him as a close associate in business, but most of all I cherish him as an understanding friend.
W. H. D.
