P- ‘Power of Positive Thinking’ #AtoZChallenge

“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.

Key Highlights:

“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.”

  1. This is so lovely and blissful. Like other humans, I have been also a victim of self-doubt, more often than I would like. I don’t like myself during those critical times. Every thing just seems wrong. But its an endless loop that we get stuck in, we know we are overthinking and going off the deep mind, but somehow we cant stop our minds from spinning out of control. I am glad to have come across this book via your post. I would definitely give it a shot. Thanks for sharing!!

    1. Being in self-doubt can keep us stuck in a whirlpool, I know how that feels. This book on Positive Thinking will surely help. Good Luck with internalising.

  2. We spend hours and hours dwelling and ruminating on the negative and fearful things in our lives. We worry about what could go wrong, instead of focusing and paying attention to the rational, the positive and the good

  3. You have totally sold me on the book. I am amazed at how some people are able to see the same situation in a completely different light: like my yoga teacher. She has a smile on her face most of the time and enjoys every second. All of us need to work on our mindset and look at the world through a positive lens. Would love to see the “romance” in small everyday things, have a long way to go.

    1. Great to know that you will read the book. Not surprised about your yoga teacher – yoga has that effect on students so teachers ought to be in a completely positive space. Thanks for dropping by Namratha.

  4. This is something I completely agree with. We cannot change our circumstances but we can surely change our attitude to the same, if we try hard enough. I hope people realise this more and more.

Would love to read what you thought of this post.
