Publisher's Summary

Powerful examples and techniques to help you turn your life around through positive thinking from one of the leading names in self-help literature.

Millions of people around the world have changed their lives for the better thanks to Norman Vincent Peale and his Positive Thinking philosophy. Dr. Peale's groundbreaking program of affirmation and positive visualization is an amazingly effective way to overcome any obstacles that may stand between you and success, happiness, and your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health and well-being. Positive Thinking works - and in The Power of Positive Living, Dr. Peale demonstrates how to use these techniques to conquer the fears and crippling adversity that may be holding you back from realizing your true potential in life. Self-confidence is the key, and this audiobook shows us how we can do it! With the "get-it-done twins", patience and perseverance, any believer can be an achiever!

Dr. Peale provides inspiring success stories from his own extensive experience as a counselor - such as a department store executive who turned his store into one of the chain's most profitable by focusing on his past successes rather than his failures and a woman who recovered her self-confidence and joy and purpose in living when she started volunteering with cancer survivors after her own breast cancer diagnosis cut short her modeling career. The wisdom, guidance, and practical advice provided in The Power of Positive Living will give you faith in yourself and in your power to achieve absolutely anything!

I Loved It So Much I Had to Buy The Hard Copy

Note: If you are a non-Christian, this book is not for you. It is completely built on Christian beliefs/values. It is the Law of Attraction built on Christian teachings.
-----------
Norman Vincent Peale, phD, (1898-1993) is a preacher who completely and wholly believed in the Law of Attraction built on Christian teachings. Whenever I read his books, I have to stop often to soak in his wisdom and counsel. Although times and circumstances have changed, the gospel of Jesus Christ and His teachings have not and the Power of Positive Living and Christ's teachings can be applied in every aspect of our lives.

The crazy thing is, Dr. Peale's teachings were taught 50 years before "The Secret" and many other self-help and cognitive therapy books. His book began the self-help genre and encouraged readers to live a richer, more rewarding life; to try optimism over pessimism. He was a strong believer that positive thinking brings about positive results and our faith in Jesus Christ (in a higher power, if you will), helps get us there. So many reviews condemned the religiousness of this book, but, hello, the whole point of the book is: 1) he's a preacher; 2) if we look to God, we will be more positive in our everyday lives; 3) positivity attracts positivity.

This is one of those books that you must listen to over and over and if you buy the book, you must highlight passages and go back to read parts of it again and again.

For both the happy and the sad

I enjoyed this book. The many stories he told were very relatable. I plan to read it again in the future and encourage others to read it as well.

This is a book about christianity

In all that I read it seemed like a self-improvement book. Until chapter 2 (when I could no longer return it), he doesn't mention that hes a preacher and that the name of this book was originally the power of faith. This is fine, its just simply not what I was looking for as I don't share those views. I just felt cheated that I spent the money on something that turned out to be a sermon.

Awesome!

This book is uplifting, inspiring and practical. Dr Peel is one of the most insightful authors. I loved the book and have, and will continue to highly recommend it to all my friends and associates. I am a believer in God, and therefore finds it very spiritual, and the real life stories very powerful. I feel that even non believers can gain huge benefits from this book, as it is simply awesome.

Great book, however

I first read this book as a kid and have read it many times since.
However, this audiobook is heavily abridged it’s about 1/3 of the hard copy.

It’s okay, but it should have been completed.
