Book Description

Joyce Meyer has a knack for coining phrases-her fans call them Joyceisms-and one of her best loved is "Where the mind goes, the man follows." This was the basis for Battlefield of the Mind, and in her latest book, Meyer provides "power thoughts," bringing the reader to a new level of ability to use the mind as a tool to achievement.
In POWER THOUGHTS, she outlines a flexible program to turn thoughts into habits, and habits into success. Sections include:

· The Power of a Positive You

· 5 Rules for Keeping Your Attitude at the Right Altitude

· More Power To You bulleted keys to successful thinking in each chapter

· The Power of Perspective

Nobody has more of a "can-do" attitude than Joyce Meyer. Now you can, too.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bestselling author and TV preacher Meyer takes a step beyond her bestseller Battlefield of the Mind. She offers a 12-step program to help readers conquer the negativity that naturally plagues the mind, leaving readers free to enjoy life and pursue their goals. Using themes from other books in her ample catalogue--worry, perseverance, managing emotions--Meyer breaks her suggestions into several digestible lists, backed by a "Power Pack" of Bible verses at the end of each chapter. She offers enthusiastic encouragement, but also requires action, here in the form of practice, discipline, and continual meditation on the 12 motivational thoughts. Critics of the positive thinking movement (Meyer obliquely acknowledges a debt to the pioneering Norman Vincent Peale) will continue to find downsides in this book, among them failure to sufficiently acknowledge the pain of suffering and an ignorance of intractable mental illness. Critics of Meyer will say she sounds like an infomercial ("You will see amazing results"). Yet her many fans will continue to appreciate her upbeat attitude and her ability to offer practical tips on the toughest topics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winning On the Battlefield of the Mind September 15, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This latest book by Joyce Meyer is her follow-up to her best-selling "Battlefield of the Mind"--the "next step"--which gives you "specific insights and strategies to help you build powerful mind-sets to empower you to live in a place of strength, success, and victory every day". And it truly delivers. The author writes that the mind "can be a junkyard or a treasure chest" and in this book, she shows how. I would consider this not a book to be read over lightly, but a manual to be read once and then studied, digested, and most of all--practiced in daily life.

The book has two parts. The first part gives a general overview of why the mind is a battlefield, why we as Christians must take every thought captive, and how this is done. It has been years and years since "Battlefield of the Mind" came out (and thus years and years since I read it) but it seems to me that the first part would be an overview or refresher on what that book covered. Once you understand the basic principles involved, you are ready to go on to the second part. The second part is the meat of the book--a group of specific tools--12 beliefs that are vital in a Christian's life in order to live in victory. Each belief is one chapter and at the end of the chapter there is a "Power Pack" of Scriptures that the belief is based on for you to memorize. I found the structure of the book really helpful in being able to use it on an ongoing basis.

I read the book last night and today, but am going to be working with it for far longer. I'm going to write the Scriptures down for memorization and (as the book suggests) focus each week for the next 12 weeks on one of the beliefs. The first one is "I can do whatever I need to do in life through Christ". Another is, "I am difficult to offend.

5.0 out of 5 stars We become what we think September 26, 2010
Once again, Joyce Meyer has written a down-to-earth motivational self-help book for Christians in Power Thoughts. Meyers uses basic cognitive therapy ideas combined with a biblical approach to combat your thoughts to change your world. She teaches the importance of thoughts and how to control them in her book, Battlefield of the Mind, but this book goes one step beyond, encouraging readers to meditate on scriptures to keep their minds renewed daily. In Power Thoughts, Meyers illustrates a "Power Thoughts Program" which she has developed to assist in gaining and maintaining control over your thoughts in order to transform your life. This is a 12-week plan to maintain the life God desires for us.

This book is positive, realistic and easy to read and understand. Readers will enjoy her honesty and no-nonsense approach. This book is a great read for anyone who wants to improve their life and further develop their relationship with God. Her Power Thoughts Program is simple and doable. "We become what we think." Proverbs 23:7

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book truly is Amazing and Life changing! December 27, 2011
I recently began reading this book because I was fed up with my negative bad attitude and wanted to control my mouth instead of having it control me. This book is a great tool to read with God's word. I recommend using the three month plan she mentions in the beginning of the book and also to pray every time you pick up the book that God would use it to benefit your life in following him. I know I want to be pleasing to the Lord not a fowl odor, so I knew I needed this book. And man can I see a difference! I am so much more positive it's almost like I am a different person! And you know what? I am a different person, God has freed me from the curse of the tongue and I am thankful for this book in which the Holy Spirit led me to buy. Don't miss this chance to have freedom in your life, you will be happy and others around you will be too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Joyce Meyer Does It Again! October 22, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book because I have found many of Joyce Meyer's books to be of help to me in my Christian Journey. I read an excerpt and realized from it, that I had fallen back into some old habits about how I think or look at things.
This book is a helpful reminder that 'it's all in how we look at it'. It also reminds us what God's promises are to us during tough times and what our attitude needs to be.
I found particularly helpful the Think about It sections.
As always, Joyce Meyer is easy to read and she encourages you to read the Bible and look up things you don't understand. Not all of her books are for me, but this one seemed to really hit home.

Whether it is her charisma or just plain intellect, Joyce Meyers finds a way to express what others only grapple at. Very intuitive and deep. The book explains a lot. This is a best seller for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful! March 1, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I haven't read all of the book yet but the first few chapters have really made an impact on me. Joyce makes a great point to how much power your mind has. When you focus on the negative all the time, you will miss the positive things in life. If you focus on the positive and tell yourself things like "I can do this!" life will be much better. I personally reccomend this book for anyone, no matter where you are in life.
