Positive Thinking Every Day: An Inspiration for Each Day of the Year

Pivotal Book - Positive thinking every day

ISBN:  9780671868918   |  Format:    Paperback    |    Publisher  Pocket Books

In a world where the negative occurs by default, programming one's mind with a positive antidote is necessary on a regular basis. Books such as this will help you obtain that needed mental nourishment.

Thousands of studies have shown how much stress affects your emotions and health - and how reducing stress can have an incredibly powerful effect on your daily life. The mindset you set up for yourself each day can literally make you more healthy - and keep you that way.

This is where Norman Vincent Peale's book comes in.

Norman Vincent Peale's philosophy of positive thinking has had an unprecedented influence on millions of people throughout the world. Now, the wisdom of nine books -- including The Power of Positive Thinking -- can be found within these pages.

“I look at this GREAT little book every single day. Why? Each page has date. And below each date there is a short, highly meaningful quotation from Norman Vincent Peale that helps me keep my perspective.”

Timeless in their message, invaluable in the course of daily life, Dr. Peale's classic books provide inspiration when you most need it and lead the way to a fuller, happier, more satisfying life.

“These short but potent quotes are like a shot of psychological and spiritual Vitamin C.”

‘For example, here's one. "For the next twenty-four hours, deliberately speak hopefully about everything, about your job, about your children's marks in school, about your health, and about your future." Isn't that an amazing thought - that it might be a challenge to be hopeful, just for 24 hours? If you were actively hopeful, what kind of beneficial ripple effects might that have on others around you? It could literally make your entire environment incrementally better.’

With a new introduction by Dr. Peale, Positive Thinking Every Day will help make your every day the best it can possibly be.

Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life

At last, a book that shows you how to build -- design -- a life you can thrive in,

at any age or stage

Designers create worlds and solve problems using design thinking.

designing_life

Look around your office or home--at the tablet or smartphone you may be holding or the chair you are sitting in. Everything in our lives was designed by someone. And every design starts with a problem that a designer or team of designers seeks to solve.

In this book, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are.

The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise.

"Designing Your Life walks readers through the process of building a satisfying, meaningful life by approaching the challenge the way a designer would. Experimentation. Wayfinding. Prototyping. Constant iteration. You should read the book. Everyone else will."
Daniel Pink, bestselling author of Drive

This [is] the career book of the next decade and . . . the go-to book that is read as a rite of passage whenever someone is ready to create a life they love. David Kelley, Founder of IDEO

An empowering book based on their popular class of the same name at Stanford University . . . Perhaps the book's most important lesson is that the only failure is settling for a life that makes one unhappy. With useful fact-finding exercises, an empathetic tone, and sensible advice, this book will easily earn a place among career-finding classics.

On Fire. The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life

In the bestselling tradition of Brene Brown's Daring Greatly and Nick Vujicic s Life Without Limits comes a rousing 7-step plan for living a life on fire, filled with hope and possibility from an inspirational speaker who survived a near-fatal fire at the age of nine and now runs a successful business inspiring people all around the world. 
 
When John O'Leary was nine years old, he was almost killed in a devastating house fire. With burns on one hundred percent of his body, O'Leary mustered an almost unimaginable amount of inner strength just to survive the ordeal. 
 
The insights he gained through this experience and the heroes who stepped into his life to help him through the journey - his family, the medical staff, and total strangers changed his life. 
 
Now he is committed to living life to the fullest and inspiring others to do the same. 
 
An incredible and emotionally honest account of triumph over tragedy, On Fire contains O'Leary s reflections on being that little boy, the life-giving choices made then, and the resulting lessons he learned. 
 
O'Leary very clearly shares that without the right people providing the right guidance, at the right time, he never would have made it through those five months in the hospital, let alone the years that followed as he struggled to regain mobility, embrace his story, and ignite clarity of his life's purpose. 
 
On Fire encourages us to seize the power to choose our path and transform our lives from mundane to extraordinary. 
 
Once we stop thinking solely on the big moments in our lives, we can begin to focus on those smaller opportunities that tend to pass us by. These are the events, the inflection points in our lives that can determine how we feel about life now, where we are headed in the future, and how many lives we can impact along the way. 
 
We can't always choose the path we walk, but we can choose how we walk it. 
 
Empowering, inspiring, remarkably honest, and heartfelt, O'Leary's strength and incredible spirit shine through on every page."
 
You can buy the book from The Book Depository  or Amazon
