Discovering the Power of Positive Thinking - Norman Vincent Peale

Discovering the Power of Positive Thinking

Change your thoughts and you change your world writes Norman Vincent Peale in this exhilarating world-wide bestselling book.

Your happiness depends on the habit of mind you cultivate. Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as living life to the fullest. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture further... Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.

Practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate a merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast.

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.


Norman Vincent Peale, (born May 31, 1898, Bowersville, Ohio, U.S. — died December 24, 1993, Pawling, New York), influential and inspirational American religious leader who, after World War II, tried to instill a spiritual renewal in the United States with his sermons, public-speaking events, broadcasts, newspaper columns, and books. He encouraged millions with his best seller, The Power of Positive Thinking.
