Publisher's Summary

In the audio version of this New York Times best seller, Tommy Newberry takes a single biblical principle and teaches us how one simple truth can magnify the joy we experience in our marriage, with our parenting, and in our life as a whole.

Unfortunately, we live in a society bent on nursing old wounds and highlighting what is wrong with just about everything. As a result, we have grown accustomed to viewing the world, our lives, and ourselves through a lens of negativity, and that negativity stands in direct contrast to the passionate, purpose-filled people God wants us to be.

This is where The 4:8 Principle grabs our attention. First, the author skillfully persuades us to acknowledge the link between the thoughts we choose to think and the joy we experience. Next, he shows us how we can grow our potential for joy by refusing to dwell upon the problems and pressures that are enduring and inevitable. Finally, he challenges us to pay the price of joy by becoming "extraordinarily picky" about what we read, watch, and listen to on a consistent basis.

The strength of the book, though, is in Newberry's ability to clearly explain how to put this principle into daily practice through a series of quick, easy, and even fun adjustments. The 4:8 Principle is loaded with specific suggestions and helpful advice for going beyond the ordinary and experiencing life as it was meant to be.

Here are the nine lessons:

  • Introduction: Thinking Like God Thinks and Session One: Life as It Was Meant to Be
  • Session Two: A New Beginning
  • Session Three: Wow, That's Me!
  • Session Four: Your Potential for Joy
  • Session Five: You Make Me So Mad
  • Session Six: Head Games
  • Session Seven: Your Personal Firewall
  • Session Eight: Junk-Proof Your Mind
  • Session Nine: Thanks for Everything

    "Keeps me positive!"

    Tommy Newberry has the most wonderful way of reminding me about what is most important in life! The 4:8 Principle puts it in front of me every day, as I listen on the way to work. The biblical passage upon which this book is based was my university's credo, but Tommy brings it to life in a way that I can live out on a daily basis. He really gets it right. I will recommend this book to my co-workers, church friends and family members, and I will continue to listen regularly, because I can never hear this message too many times.

    "NOT FOR ME"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure. Loved his success is not an accident...so probably NOT fans of that one


    What was most disappointing about Tommy Newberry’s story?


    The book was cheesy and did not enjoy the "This day I do's".


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator's voice was kind of annyoing and the tone was as well.


    What character would you cut from The 4:8 Principle?

    NONE


    Any additional comments?

    I was very disappointed after listening to this book. Not at all what i expected. Could have been more in depth. Nothing new here. At all...and I do not like to use that expression.
    I LOVED Success is not an accident. But not this.

    This is the first reveiw i've written and I have many many books on audible. just needed to let others know. Book is slow.

    "Inspiring read!"
    Where does The 4:8 Principle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I started out a bit skeptical. However, I have to say this book has really helped me to deal with alot of stressful issues in my life. It is very thought provoking. I am listening to it slowly and relistening as I go. I would recommend it to anyone that is ready to make a change in their life. It is proving to be a real blessing!
