You’ve heard it before, but do you believe it? Think positively and life will be brighter. It’s the basis of starting the personal development industry.
But we’ve all been in a funk. Those positive thoughts have slipped our minds many times. Even though many of our problems can be traced back to the way we think. We seem to be able to find good reasons for our hostile thinking.
Consider the way we approach problems, whether positively or negatively, affects their outcome.
It comes down to this: change your thinking, change your life.
King Solomon said it best:
For as a man thinks in his heart so is he.
Proverbs 23:7 NKJV

I know it’s not easy. I come from a family of worriers. It’s not natural for me to think positively. Norman Vincent Peale was a huge influence helping me in this area. His 1952 book, The Power of Positive Thinking, is a classic, selling 20 million copies. I don’t agree with everything he writes but this book is filled with practical examples and easy to implement strategies to unleashing The Power of Positive Thinking in you.
As a young person, Norman Vincent Peale fought against strong feelings of inferiority. Over the years he developed and refined a message that anyone could use to put the principles of positive thinking and strong faith into practice and dramatically improve their own life.
This book is written with the sole objective of helping the reader achieve a happy, satisfying, and worthwhile life.
