Joyce Meyer has a knack for coining phrases - her fans call them "Joyceisms" - and one of her best loved is "Where the mind goes, the man follows." This was the basis for Battlefield of the Mind, and in her latest book, Meyer provides "power thoughts", bringing the reader to a new level of ability to use the mind as a tool to achievement.
In Power Thoughts, she outlines a flexible program to turn thoughts into habits, and habits into success. Sections include:
Nobody has more of a "can-do" attitude than Joyce Meyer. Now you can, too.

I wish I had know that there was a religious aspect before I purchased this audio book. I didn't listen past the first 5 minutes.
I was not prepared for the Christian, god vs evil philosophy that consumed each chapter.
The message was good, but the religious references and constant overture of the bible the jesus christ was too much for me.
I AM a Christian, but suggest avoiding this one unless you believe that Satan exists as the enemy you need to overcome with God's help in order to achieve your goals.
If I wanted to read the bible, I would. There is a hidden agenda here and that would be fine if the author was upfront about her intent, but there are many more books that do a better job without using the bible as a foundation. Plus the information is superficial and lacks any real insight. Best avoided.
I am highly disappointed with this book and deceived by the other reviews and ratings as well. I do not like books which base its ideas and principals on religious grounds whether its Christianity or any other religion for this matter ( except Buddhism, i guess ). If you share me the same opinion , do not buy this book. If you are more into such type of books ( and want to be a more religious person ), go ahead and enjoy !
The bible references and the contant barrage of christian dogma are overbearing. Even if you can overlook this, the rambling and waffling makes it difficult to discern the key points made.
None of the material is original. Quotes from James Allen were given as anonomous. Why? Because the auther makes the comment that Eastern religions are false and new age lets you think you can do anything you want. I guess she cannot therefore officially endorse James Allen.
The author may have some good points to make to one eyed fundamentalist christians, but if this is not you, stap yourself in for mega doses of dogma!
