15 thoughts on “Book Review : The Power of Positive Thinking (Part 2)

  1. Hi Rolf

    Indeed, you attract what you think of. If you are positive, you will see all the positivity in life.

    1. Hi FD,

      I love the phrase "u attract wat u think." though it may not realise, but at least u attract.

      🙂

  2. Thank you, Rolf, for that excellent summary. Now I do not have to read the entire book any longer.

    It somehow confirms what I remind myself of. I always have a choice. Yes sure, I cannot choose what life throws at me, but I can always choose how I react to each situation.

    As long as we have a strong 'Want To' the 'How To' shows up everywhere around us.

    Congrats to you for having a strong 'Want To'.

    1. Hi Andy,

      This is the problem of book review! haha.

      Yes, we do have a choice to react.

      Still, somehow I do feel that our choice to react positivity depend more on improving via our own life experiences rather than just from a book.

  3. Anyone can read this book but not anyone can profit from it.
    "Old habits die hard" is always true.

    1. Hi temperament,

      Agree. Guess end of the day, the environment and the experiences inject more influences. Still, it is a good side dish.

  4. Rolf,

    The first self-help book I read was from Dale Carnegie during my secondary school days.

    The thing about all these "positive thinking" is that its not without limitations…

    I can do all the positive thinking all I want, but I'll never be a brain surgeon. But ask me to write…now we are talking! I never had issues with essay composition in school. Ask me to do math? Boy, do I moan and groan!

    Vincent Peale is right though. Being with cheerful people is much better than with unhappy people 🙂

    1. Hi SMOL,

      Thanks for sharing. I have to agree with you.

      My first self-help book is “Be Happy” by Andrew Matthews just before I entered NS. Hmm….NS wasn’t that happy for me afterall!

      Like I mentioned many times before, I always believe: environment, life experiences, failures etc carves a man more than anything. These are the main dish. Reading, attending positive books/courses are the side dishes to fortify/motivate our beliefs.

      Nonetheless, to read a “positive thinking book” is still better than to “negative thinking” one. Also it injects good knowledge into my “mind library!”

  5. There is a lot of power in positive thinking in this blog and with the help of positive thinking we can achieve our impossible goals.So all students should read books on the positive thinking.

  6. Hi Rolf,

    Am reading this book, though I didn't know it's so embedded with religion. Nevertheless, so far so good 🙂 Am already practicing it!

    1. Hi LP,

      I am not religious too, but just extract the relevant points and read quickly the religious part. This is what I done. Sorry for not pointing it out explicitly earlier.

      Hope you are already very positive now! So positive ions that you may need some negative ions to neutralize. haha!

    2. Nah, no worries, just highlighting to other readers who might want to read this book. I think I'm already positive, but it's always good to learn a few tricks up my sleeve 😉

      Anyway, thanks for the recommendation!

  7. You always can publish something absorbing that does not waste minutes of your life like what you see on countless other sites.awriter.org This is very interesting and I will be back for more. Thanks for sharing

  8. Interesting post! Actually, the idea of positive thinking has recently become quite popular. There are quite a lot of publication on the topic in the net. Buy Essay

  9. I blog often and I genuinely thank you for your content. The article has truly peaked my interest. I'm going to bookmark your website and keep checking for new information about once a week.
