Positive Imaging by Norman Vincent Peale

The Powerful Way to Change Your Life

A visionary, proven program for positive gain in virtually every aspect of life by one of the 20th century's most influential self-help experts and spiritual leaders

Norman Vincent Peale's groundbreaking self-help classic, The Power of Positive Thinking, has dramatically transformed countless lives throughout the world with its powerful message of constructive affirmation. Positive Imaging builds on the principles originally presented in Dr. Peale's life-changing, multi-million-copy bestseller, offering step-by-step guidance that will help you break through the barriers that stand in the way of achieving the harmony, happiness, and success you so fervently desire.

In this essential volume, Dr. Peale takes the positive thinking idea a step further. By employing a potent mental process called “imaging,” you can eliminate problems and take firm control of your life. Keeping a clear and vivid picture of a desired goal in your mind until it becomes part of your subconscious will help you actualize your objectives by releasing previously untapped inner energies. With Positive Imaging you can banish fear and loneliness, strengthen and gain new confidence in your interpersonal relationships, improve your health, and eliminate your financial worries. The path to mental and physical wellness, spiritual well-being, and overall success in life is opening up right in front of you—let Dr. Peale show you the way.

The tittle has piqued my interest.
What is another coue method or something similar to "The Secret"? Let's say that it gives advices and how to see life trouble with a grain of positivity.

Really different from my usually reads, I may have frown once or twice (ok more than that) at the mention of god into the process of powerful imagining and success in achieving goals. But having faith is important. It doesn't matter what we believe in, this book still give interesting point of view through a lot of examples.
Some are really touching.

To be honest, I had a good time. I was trying to put the advices into practice and may even have made peace with some beliefs of mine.

Interesting to remember that our mind is powerful, that our dreams are important and that helping others is a good way to stay happy.

"It must be kept in mind, however, that imaging is not a magic formula that simply, by some kind of mental trick, brings desired results. In an amazing way, ir does open doors to problems solving and to goal achievenement."
"Let the skeptics have their doubts. I prefer to believe that ideas do have wings!"
"You have to spend every minute of your life in your own company. If you don't enjoy it, you're going to be miserable. If you do enjoy it, solitude will never bother you."

"Sometimes fear is so great that it shatters people. They lose their confidence, they withdraw from life, their image of themselves shrinks to the point where they no longer believe they can cope with hardship, or illness, or economic problems, or whetever is threatening them. And once their belief in their own competence is lost, it is hard to get it back."
