“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” ~Norman Vincent Peale
Some of the best books I have read have come to me when I needed them the most. One such book was ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’ by Norman Vincent Peale. This one I remember having picked during a phase when I couldn’t see beyond the heap of negativity in my life. My choices, the regrets, the sense of despair I was in, amidst the thickest and darkest clouds of uncertainty. Perhaps life has a way of putting something in your hand when you so desperately need it.
It is hard for any amount of positive thinking to break through a mind so walled up with negativity. But while reading ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’, I slowly and gradually opened up to receiving the subtle messages. It made me willing to look beyond the negativity I had embroiled myself in. To start seeing streaks of light in the dark. And it is amazing how the situation you thought was only negative, may or may not change. But your outlook and perspective towards it can surely change to being optimistic. Our attitude to life is the one thing we have in control, not our circumstances.
The key is to replace every negative thought by a positive one. Even if it seems like a tall order, it is possible. For people who are surrounded by the gleam of everything negative and need hope, ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’ is highly recommended.
“To become a happy person have a clean soul, eyes that see romance in the commonplace, a child’s heart, and spiritual simplicity.”
“The greatest secret for eliminating the inferiority complex, which is another term for deep and profound self-doubt, is to fill your mind to overflowing with faith. Develop a tremendous faith in God and that will give you a humble yet soundly realistic faith in yourself.”
“You do not need to be a victim of worry. Reduced to its simplest form, what is worry? It is simply an unhealthy and destructive mental habit.”
“Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate.”
