5 Things You Need to Know From Norman Vincent Peale’s Book: The Power of Positive Thinking

Published

on

The Late American Minister and Author, Norman Vincent Peale (1898 – 1993), is known for supporting the concept of positive thinking through his bestseller, The Power of Positive Thinking.

In the book, Norman mainly aims to make readers achieve an optimistic mindset.

I read the book a few days ago, and it inspired me by giving me faith and hope in life. I also learned the importance of positive psychology from it.

I hope you’ll read the book because it will encourage you to be a positive, prayerful, and purposeful individual.

I thank you for giving me the opportunity to share with you the main lessons I learned from the book.

 

  1. The Best Way to Overcome Self-Doubt is to Build Faith

Norman Vincent Pearle writes that self-doubt is the biggest killer of your dreams but the good thing is that you can overcome it by filling your mind with faith.

According to Norman, you fill your mind with faith by praying constantly and trusting in God’s help and guidance.

  1. You Cannot Succeed in Life if you Don’t Believe in Yourself

Norman believes that people who trust in their abilities usually succeed because self-confidence leads to self-realization.

Besides this, Norman teaches that those who don’t believe in themselves fail because the lack of self-confidence prevents an individual from developing faith and hope. And without these two virtues, one cannot succeed.

Also, according to Norman, the lack of self-confidence leads to failure because it makes you fear to grasp big opportunities and take huge responsibilities.

  1. You Can Practise Attaining Inner Peace

Norman teaches that you can attain inner peace by doing the following.

  • Thinking peaceful thoughts.
  • Visualizing peaceful images.
  • Practising to stay in silence for 15 minutes every day.
  • Affirming peaceful words such as, ‘serenity.’

 

  1. There is a Formula for Effective Prayer

Norman believed that prayer is the greatest power because it opens your mind to the Creator. In the book, he teaches that the most effective formula for prayer is to prayerise, picturise, and then actualize.

You prayerize by praying consistently; then you picturize by continually taking time to visualize the success of your prayers. Lastly, you actualize your prayer by working hard and wisely.

  1. ‘You Will Get the Best if You Expect the Best’ – Norman Vincent Pearle

In the book, Norman writes that you will always get the best out of life if you expect the best.

Expecting the best activates the Law of Attraction by making your mind to emit a magnetic force that will bring the best to you.

Concluding Remarks

Therefore, from the Power of Positive Thinking, you learn that you will achieve success if you build your faith, believe in yourself, attain inner peace, pray, and expect the best.

Thank You for Reading. Be blessed.

    What I love is that it validates a couple of things I am doing already – I have been trying to meditate but sometimes my mind wanders terribly. This is a great reminder that just sitting in silence for 15 minutes can be very powerful. Also, I pray and then visualize it coming true. Neat!

The Top 5 Amazing Takeaways from Yasmin Mogahed’s book: RECLAIM YOUR HEART

Published

on

Yasmin Mogahed’s book, Reclaim Your Heart, was written to free your heart from slavery and enable you to have a positive perception towards hardships. The book also reveals the importance of placing our hope in God and advises us on how to react when we fall.

Besides this, the book is inspiring and also easy-to-read. I learned several things from the book, and I believe it made me wiser.

Here are 5 remarkable lessons I learned from Yasmin Mogahed’s book.

  1. Pain Warns Us That Something is Wrong

According to Yasmin, pain is a warning that something is wrong and we need to make changes in our lives. For example, heart-breaks tell us that we are too attached to a particular person, and we need to let go of him/her. They force us to make internal changes.

  1. The importance of Hardships

Hardships purify our souls and move us closer to God. They also remind us about the Greatness of God, and how small we are compared to his greatness. Difficulties awaken us from our recklessness and show us where we are heading to. For this reason, we must embrace hardships

  1. Life is a Test

‘The present world is an illusory pleasure: you are sure to be tested through your possessions and persons’ – Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

We must realize that Life is a test that God uses to bring us closer to Him. Besides this, we must see life as a test because this perception enables us to realize that we can learn something from everything that happens to us. Lastly, we must strive to realize how we can pass the test of life.

  1. The Importance of Fasting

Yasmin teaches that fasting enables us to control our soul’s desires because it makes us learn to restrain our physical desires. By learning to avoid eating food while no one is watching, fasting also trains us to avoid indulging in immoral activities when people aren’t watching.

  1. The Definition of Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening occurs when you realize that you had a wrong perception of the world. For this reason, awakening enables you to have a truer and beautiful life. It makes you fully aware and makes you realize that you can do and have anything you want. Lastly, when you awaken, nothing from your past will matter.

I believe these lessons will be of help to you on the journey of life. You are welcome to share in the comment box below the lesson you think is the most valuable.

6 Powerful Lessons From Bob Proctor’s Book: YOU WERE BORN RICH

Published

on

In the article, 16 Powerful and Impressive Quotes from Bob Proctor’s Book, I shared with you my favorite quotes from You were born rich. Today, I would love to share with you the top 6 remarkable lessons I learned from this marvelous book.

  1. Money is an Effect of Hard work

No one got rich through luck because every rich person worked extremely hard to accumulate riches.

Besides this, there is no shortcut to riches, and for this reason, all individuals who want to make big money must be ready to do it the hard way.

  1. The Best Way to Attract Money is Through the Prosperity Consciousness

Always imagine that you have the amount of money you wish to possess. This imagination makes your subconscious mind comfortable with the idea of money hence making it attract the amount of money you desire.

Moreover, imagining that you have the amount of money you desire makes the subconscious mind to formulate ways to bring you the money.

  1. No Amount of Reading Will Make You Financially Successful

Books won’t make you rich because they only provide you with knowledge which is only effective if you practically apply it on the journey to financial success.

  1. Let Go and Let God

Everything becomes possible to those who Let Go and Let God.

To Let Go and Let God means to stop worrying about your future, and trust that you will get everything you need to reach your financial goals. It means trusting that whatever must occur for you to reach your financial goals will happen.

  1. Desire Without Expectation is Useless

Desire is necessary for the achievement of your goals. However, it becomes wishful thinking if not accompanied by expectation.

A strong desire must be coupled with expectation because an expectant mindset prevents negative opinions and ideas from uprooting your goal/dream.

  1. Give Away What You Don’t Need And You Will Get What You Need

Give away the things you don’t need to create space for nature to give you what you need because nature always fills an empty space.

Remember, ‘The Law of Prosperity states that new things only come when you let go old things.’ – Bob Proctor

Therefore, if you want anything, for example, new clothes, just give out all the clothes you rarely wear, and you will soon find yourself with new clothes.

I believe the above lessons will help us attract a prosperous life. You are welcome to add more lessons you’ve learned from life/books that can help us attract prosperity.
