Altough i am a muslim but i found this book equally revealing, all of the methods and techniques i read in this book are easily applicable to any one regard less of their religion and faith. the thought which Mr Norman discussed in this book is already known to every muslim, but are long lost and forgotten, But thanks to him that i am now again connected to my roots and living at peace. I recommend reading this book with an open mind so that your cast, culture and religion will not interfear in your intellectual growth and understanding of the laws of universe.

If you are looking for a religious solution to your troubles, this is a fantastic book. The proven and time-tested practices outlined in this book should lead anyone to a life of mental and emotional health through faith in Jesus Christ. You can find the best edition here:

Though written over 50 years before "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne, it almost exactly mirrors that book. The terminology may be different ("pictureize" instead of "visualize") but the techniques are similar. I've used techniques put forth in "The Secret" and in this book and they do work. Put bluntly, it has to be believed to work in order to work. If nothing else, there is practical advice for the aid of sleeping, clearing your mind and reducing your level of anger in tense situations. Additionally, I think anyone would be happier and be more pleasant to be around when they shift their thinking to a more positive mindset. This gives exercises to help accomplish that goal.Again, I feel Mr. Peale's book and Ms. Byrne's book compliment each other. If someone is turned off by "The Secret," believing it to be "Oprahesque," New Age thinking, than read "The Power of Positive Thinking." There aren't many who are more mainstream than he, who comes from a traditional, American religious background. At the same time, if someone is turned off by a traditional, religious point of view, read "The Secret" (which instead of "God" uses the term "The Universe," when referencing a Higher Power, therefore allowing for many faiths and beliefs). However, if both books are read, I believe a person not only reinforces the basic principles in their mind but also gains additional techniques to achieve their goals.Again, the caveat is, you have to believe for it to work. You have to remember to use it. If you try for a week and give up, this won't do you any good. However, if you're committed to continually practice what you've learned, be ready to see some amazing things happen in your life!

I discovered this book when my cousin put it on my table when he stayed temporarily in my place. He suggested I read when I was in college.Another must-read classical self-help book.

Prior to reading this, I didn't know that is was a Christianity based self-help book. The information in this book has been rehashed in The Secret and many other self-help books. Why? Because it works. I don't know when cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) was introduced, but this books has lots of techniques from that as well, and CBT has been proven to help eliminate anxiety and depression. In summary, one has to renew our thoughts and speech and this will in turn change our thinking process, which in turn will eliminate worry and inner strife.

"One never does wrong by doing right."Dr Peale's The Power of Positive Thinking is a very analytical yet mostly religious approach to conditioning a one's mind toward successful living. Instead of recommending a set of superficial instructions, author reaches a much deeper level to provide the reader with an excellent set of guidelines, to be adopted in to our core habits."our physical condition is determined very largely by our emotional condition, and our emotional life is profoundly regulated by our thought life."It's true that almost all the lessons are based on teachings of Bible, which might repel some readers, especially non-Christians. But I believe the teachings explained are universal in nature, in that, they can be easily adopted and interpreted using any religion. I, for one, being a Buddhist, was able to read the book in that way.Move beyond that, and you will find this book to be an amazing guide, giving the reader an innumerable amount of valuable material."The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence.""We are in eternity now. We are citizens of eternity."

I read this book over 35 years ago, at a stage in my life when I needed to leave home and go out into the world. It did help me then. I decided to re-read it as I am at a different stage in life, will soon be the big 60 and don't want to turn into a grumpy old woman! It is easy to lapse into grumbling and groaning - especially when it is all you hear at work and from the friends who have become negative. Well, I did enjoy the book and it has reminded me that looking at life positively (every cloud has a silver lining) gives you happiness and confidence. Just one sentence in the book makes a difference "every time you have a negative thought, replace it with a positive one". As this book was written in 1952, I am now reading a similar book, with excellent reviews, that was written recently, which should be a good contrast. As I will always want my friends and family to enjoy my company, rather than come and see me out of duty, I aim to grow old gracefully and in a good mood :-)

5.0 ⭐GENRE - SELFHELP / SPIRITUALPosting a book after a long time however this is one of those books which one would enjoy nice and slow!!I got this book as gift from my Principal during my graduation of high school back in 2004 I never kept track of it had almost lost it and got it back from my friend who happened to read it and keep it in his library.Norman Vincent Peale a pastor has shared his experience as a healer and motivational speaker, he has in this book picked up a lot of references from the bible and connected it with real life events and shared his experience in this book.A highly recommended book if you are a Catholic as well as for those readers who are looking forward to reading self help books!!The author has provided exercises in this book that are easy to follow, also one of those books which I will keep returning to until I perfect the exercises mentioned in this book.Thank you ❤️

Norman Vincent Peale, one of America’s most distinguished speakers was not born with that gift. As a child Norman was shy and retiring and had a terrible inferiority complex. Then to add to those feelings of inferiority, he was a preacher’s son and believed that he was expected to be perfect. Well, he didn’t want to be perfect he wanted to be hard-boiled and something else, he vowed never to become a preacher. He grew up in a religious family and as part of the church community from time to time they were all called upon to make public speeches. Norman was urged to join the others in their activities, but the thought of speaking in public scared him to death.Eventually though, with the urging of his father, reading the Bible and interacting with other family members he began to shed those feelings of inferiority. Then once he got over his shyness and began to connect with an audience he became a very effective public speaker and writer. He also became a preacher, something that he had vowed earlier in life not to ever do.After a number of years of interaction with church members as their minister he determined several simple truths about life. You must believe in yourself because, ‘without a humble and reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.’ Basil King once said, “Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid.” Emerson declared a tremendous truth. “They conquer who believe they can.”Dr. Peale tells the story of a day on the golf course. It seems he hit the ball into some tall grass and when he finally located the almost hidden ball, he lamented about his chances of hitting it out. Well, his golf partner saw his dilemma and talked him through the problem. Dr. Peale took a swing, as instructed, and wound up hitting the ball near the green. He was delighted with the results and always remembered a comment made by his playing partner that day, ‘the rough is only mental.’ Now while The Power of Positive Thinking is based on Dr. Peale’s belief in God, he also says that belief in your own abilities play a large part in individual success or failure. Self-confidence or the lack of it plays an important part in our lives. A survey of college students when asked to state their most difficult personal problem seventy five percent answered that it was a lack of confidence.One of the ways to self-confidence is to expect the best. When you expect the best, you release a magnetic force in your mind, which by law of attraction tends to bring the best to you.When you buy and read this remarkable book your attitude will change, and you’ll find success -- sometimes in the most unexpected places.

A physician friend of mine told of a patient he had who was suffering with severe stomach pains. He told that patient: "the bible says; What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” That man went on to become the top salesman at his company! Listening to this audio book, read by the author, was a lot like having your great-grandfather read the passage above. But I don't mean to diminish the power of reading the bible or the power of thinking positively. One point that stuck with me was that if you are expecting the worse outcome your actions will unconsciously bring that about. He stated it better: “We build up the feeling of insecurity or security by how we think. If in our thoughts we constantly fix attention upon sinister expectations of dire events that might happen, the result will be constantly to feel insecure. And what is even more serious is the tendency to create, by the power of thought, the very condition we fear.” I truly believe that. There was a lot of good stuff here. Though, like most self-help books, it became a little repetitive. But, I think the advice is solid and it is worth a read. Better yet, listen to it read by the author.

This book is a self-help guide for people dealing with difficult situations in their lives as it's during these times that self-doubt is high while problem solving skills are low. It mentions the methods to manage and reduce stress and anger when a person feels stuck in unavoidable situations. There are examples of such circumstances along with the solutions one can use. The main focus of this book is on positive thinking and how that can be the first step towards finding one's way out of even the toughest situations.

It's said that Norman is the father of positive thinking. I don't know if it's true but this book is really helpful. The book utilizes many quotes in the Bible as the author is a pastor, which may cause some kind of discomfort for layman. But emphasizes many principles of life that one cannot neglect on his way to progress: the power of prayer, expecting the best, having faith, believe in the Higher Power (God), relax to get work done, being a comfortable person and interested in people to get people like you..., just to name a few. But it's also said that reading without practicing won't do you much good. I'm on my way to apply positive thinking to my daily life. See you next year with my report :)


August 15, 2008

Learn to re-program your mind into thinking positive at all times, in any situation!! Great Read (or listen)!!


August 22, 2007

This is my favorite book. It has changed my life and my thinking. Even though it was written in the 1950's, the same principles apply today. Please read this if you haven't already!

I thought that this book was good


April 30, 2016

Absolutly fantastic book. When I started reading this book, I was completely unknown to the fact that the book has been based on the principles of Chrisinaty and The Bible. Though I am religious man, I was suprised to read and find the similarity of the quotes/passages from The Holy Bible and The Bhagvadgeeta as "Karmaney vadhikarste, ma faleshu kadachan" which means keep doing your work by having faith on the God and the God will give you the fruits, which is similary stated in The Holy Bible as "Keep the faith on the God, If God is with me, who is against me".It is really worth to read book like this which tells how we are dependent on the Almighty and if we believe in Higher Power of Him, we can achieve anything.
