Ella Wheeler Wilcox wrote this classic text in the "New Thought" movement over 100 years ago, yet much of her advice and wisdom is still true today. If you want to be happy, the change must first start with your thoughts.
Wilcox suggests ways to change your thinking and specific actions to take in order to feel better about yourself and improve your life.
For instance, have you ever noticed that the more you talk about being sick, the illness worsens and stays with you for a longer period of time?
As Wilcox tells us:
"Right thinking pays large dividends! We must train the mind to reject the brood of despondent, resentful, fearful, and prejudiced thoughts that approach it, and to invite and entertain cheerful, broad, and wholesome thoughts instead."
Each time you read and listen to this book, you can absorb the ideas that apply to you and move closer to the happier life of your dreams.
Look for the companion Kindle edition, which includes a linked Table of Contents for your convenience, as well as charming, vintage illustrations chosen to accentuate the text.
First published in 1902, this book contains a lot of advice and common sense that is still relevant today.
Covering health, clothing, treatment of other people and yourself, and many other aspects of day-to-day life, this treatise is much like a prequel to the more current and fairly popular Law of Attraction.

I'm on the fence with "The Heart of the New Thought." The audiobook didn't feel like it had much heart in it. The physical book was written over 100 years ago by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, perhaps loosely based on the 'New Thought movement' which was of the belief system that illness originates in the mind, and through God one could overcome any illness since illness was derived from erroneous beliefs. This very closely sounds like Christian Science. I found there were a few pearls of wisdom (very few) within this audiobook but the way in which they were put across sounded negative.
Karen Commins narrative of this book was mostly monotone. I would have liked it much better if it had been more upbeat and positive.

This book had very good advice. I actually enjoyed listening to it and the fact that it was written so long ago came through in the writing style. I'm sure I will be listening to it again in the future.
