Chapter 1

JANUARY 1

When you wholeheartedly adopt a "with all your heart" attitude and go all out with the positive principle, you can do incredible things.

JANUARY 2

You can be greater than anything that can happen to you.

JANUARY 3

Every day remind yourself of your own ability, of your good mind and affirm that you can make something really good out of your life.

JANUARY 4

Stress the thought of plenty. Thoughts of plenty help create plenty.

JANUARY 5

The great secret of getting what you want from life is to know what you want and believe you can have it. Always do something for others, then ask God to help you and get at it.

JANUARY 6

Have absolutely no sense of guilt about being happy and successful if you operate honestly and with a sense of social responsibility.

JANUARY 7

Live your life and forget your age.

JANUARY 8

Cultivate will power, that massive creative force that God the creator built into you. Do not let it remain flabby but strengthen it by use and exercise.

JANUARY 9

Never talk defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory.

JANUARY 10

Make a list of your friends and determine who is the most positive thinker among them and deliberately cultivate his society.

JANUARY 11

Life's blows cannot break a person whose spirit is warmed at the fire of enthusiasm.

JANUARY 12

Our happiness depends upon the habit of mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast.

JANUARY 13

Thoughts of a kind have a natural affinity. While the negative thinker tends to draw back to himself negative results, the positive thinker activates the world around him positively.

JANUARY 14

Cushion the painful effects of hard blows by keeping enthusiasm going strong, even if doing so requires struggle.

JANUARY 15

Let go and let God. Let Him take over your life and run it. He knows how.

JANUARY 16

It's always too soon to quit!

JANUARY 17

If you think lack you tend to create a condition of lack. Shift your thought pattern to one of abundance and believe that God is now in the process of giving you the abundance you need.

JANUARY 18

People who are really efficient seem to do things easily, with a minimum of effort. In so doing they release maximum power.

JANUARY 19

Help other people to cope with their problems and your own will be easier to cope with.

JANUARY 20

Believe that all the resources you need are in your mind. That is a formula that really works!

JANUARY 21

It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.

JANUARY 22

Develop a tremendous faith in God and that will give you a humble yet soundly realistic faith in yourself.

JANUARY 23

Miracles are of all sizes. And if you start believing in little miracles, you can work up to the bigger ones.

JANUARY 24

Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented, and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.

JANUARY 25

One of the few greatest satisfactions of this life is to handle problems efficiently and well.

JANUARY 26

First thing every morning before you arise say out loud, "I believe," three times.

JANUARY 27

If you feel afraid, you can make yourself courageous by acting courageous. If you are feeling unhappy, by deliberately acting happy you can induce happy feelings. If you are lacking in enthusiasm, by simply acting enthusiastic you can make yourself enthusiastic.

JANUARY 28

Do not ask a person to be what he, or she, is not. Do not ask or expect from a person what he cannot give.

JANUARY 29

Practice word therapy -- serenity, urbanity, imperturbability, equanimity. Say those powerful, mind-healing words over to yourself every day. Let them recondition your stressful attitudes.

JANUARY 30

Enthusiasm releases the drive to carry you over obstacles and adds significance to all that you do. It tones up your physical vitality and gives warmth to all your personal relationships. When you associate with enthusiasm long enough it grabs you and takes over within you.

JANUARY 31

Never use the word "impossible" seriously again. Toss it into the verbal wastebucket.

Format: Paperback
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. When things are going well, I look at this quote and think about it. And when things are looking bleak (which they do at times) I look at the quote and think about it, and even go back and review the previous day's quote. These short but potent quotes are like a shot of psychological and spiritual Vitamin C. Do you like to simply take mental stock? The quotes are for you. Or are you into prayer? Then these quotes are for you. Or are you into meditation? Then these quotes are for you. And if you're into all three of these things (to each his/her/it own) they're also for you. The great thing about this book is that you can keep it by your bedside and take it along with you when you travel. Just a minute or two a day, reading and (if you can make the time) pondering the quote can do wonders.

Format: Paperback
Dr Norman Vincent Peale's gifts continue working, long after he has gone to receive his reward. My life is enriched every time I am privileged to pick up one of his books. This well-edited volume will give you a "vitamin" dose of positive thinking for every day of the year. If you're like me, you'll just go ahead and read through the entire thing at once. 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.
Consider his powerful conclusion to this book, the December 31st reading and as you think about this message, remember he is, in a way, speaking from the "other side," as he is (present tense)a follower of Jesus Christ:
"Know that there is no death; that all life is indivisible, that the here and hereafter are one, that time and eternity are inseparable, that this is one unobstructed universe. We are citizens of eternity."

I have kept this book by my bedside for several years. I may or may not read it every single day, but I do consider it to a 'working' bible for which each day has a message that brings hope, facilitates clarity, and reminds one of what is truly important. I have also bought it as a gift for others.

Most of the daily meditations can be directly linked to the Bible, and I would have hoped that there would have been Bible references beneath his meditations. Anyone can give "good" advice, but when one sees the advice hailing from the Bible, it gives the advice a lot more credibility and power, in my humble opinion. It is important to be positive, but more importantly, to know why. I have taken to writing in his book the Bible verses that I believe correspond to his meditation, what a wonderful way to start the day!

This mega-motavating book is SO amazingly helpful in causing one to achieve and/or maintain a positive outlook on life,that you'll find yourself taking it along with you EVERYwhere you go! In fact,you'll find it nigh-impossible to NOT want it handy for you to"medicate"your mind with its'motivating(and oh,so TRUTHFUL)thoughts on taking a positive perspective on lifes' adversities,whenever they occurr!!Just recently I'd walked a long way(in freezing temperatures)to the local post office to mail an important document and encountered much"irritation"from the manner in which business was conducted there,in addition to misplacing the address(I'd written on a piece of paper)I was to mail to,which caused me further frustration,to the point of hot-IRE,at which point I walked out without accomplishing my goal,then as I sat in an empty field a few doors down FUMING,and began reading from this book(which I fortunately carried with me)I came across a passage saying:"You'll ALWAYS get an idea,if you THINK and don't PANIC." So I immediately calmed myself and began thinking carefully about my every move before I left home,when I realized that the address was not lost en-route to the post office,but had been left lying on my bed,where I'd copied the address onto it!! So I was eventually able to mail this important document by keeping my composure to ascertain the situation!! Days later my red Doberman"MANGLED"my rare,vintage(and absolute FAVORITE hat in my entire LIFE)"MCM"visor which cost me much more money than I currently have available to me,even IF(but there's not)there existed another such visor on the planet!!Read more ›

Format: Paperback
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. Every day it provides something for you to consider, a blurb to think about. You don't have to read the book straight through. In fact, it works better if you don't. Just keep it on your desk. Pick it up every day or so and see what it says. Think about the words. If you come across a favorite saying, post that up by your computer monitor. Each of us will find different pages which speak to us personally - which is why it's great that there are 365 of them!

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.

It is tempting to want this information in calendar form, one of those page-a-day to go through. On the other hand, with that system you'd have to buy a new one each year. With this book, you can just move a bookmark through it each day, and you don't have to buy another book when the year is up.

If I have a complaint, it's that the book doesn't say it's Christian up front - but there are a fair number of God references in it. I don't mind books that promote Christianity, but they should let you know they're going to do that, rather than just having it pop up once you've already bought it.
