Praise for The 4:8 Principle“In a serious world filled with trials and uncertainty, when was the last time someone challenged you to discover genuine joy? While “joy” may seem like a luxury we can’t afford, Tommy Newberry reminds us that life was meant to be lived with energy, fulfillment, purpose and yes, joy. I have personally watched Tommy teach some of the top business people in the country to adopt his 4:8 Principle mindset in their workplaces and families. The tangible, positive results they’ve experienced has been tremendous. His teaching and mentoring – now available to you and me in book form – can make a world of difference in how we approach life today – and where our lives, families and contributions to other’s lives can end up tomorrow.”

“As a clinical psychologist, I frequently see how negative and self-destructive patterns of thinking not only lead to a variety of personal and relational problems, but also severely limit our full potential. In The 4:8 Principle, Tommy Newberry clearly and effectively shows us how to transform old, negative patterns of thinking into new, productive ones using solid Biblical truths. The wisdom within this book can be applied by anyone – starting today! I will use these powerful, life-changing tools in my own life and in my clinical practice.”

Tommy Newberry’s message is simple, relevant, powerful, and timeless. In this New York Times bestseller, Newberry takes a single biblical principle and teaches us how one simple truth can magnify the joy we experience in our marriage, with our parenting, and in our life as a whole. Unfortunately, we live in a society bent on nursing old wounds and highlighting what is wrong with just about everything. As a result, we have grown accustomed to viewing the world, our lives, and ourselves through a lens of negativity and that negativity stands in direct contrast to the passionate, purpose-filled people God wants us to be. This is where The 4:8 Principle grabs our attention. First, the author skillfully persuades us to acknowledge the link between the thoughts we choose to think and the joy we experience. Next, he shows us how we can grow our potential for joy by refusing to dwell upon the problems and pressures that are enduring and inevitable. Finally, he challenges us to pay the price of joy by becoming “extraordinarily picky” about what we read, watch, and listen to on a consistent basis. The strength of the book, though, is in Newberry’s ability to clearly explain how to put this principle into daily practice through a series of quick, easy and even fun adjustments. The 4:8 Principle is loaded with specific suggestions and helpful advice for going beyond the ordinary and experiencing life as it was meant to be.

Must read for everyone. It truly changes your thought process, your actions, and subsequently your experience. I once was a person who would dwell on the negative, especially about how bad our government is, but now after reading this book I have realized life is too short to be negative. Me dwelling on our inefficient government is NOT making my life better. Therefore, why would I waste my valuable time on something that I have no control over? Changing your thinking=changing your results.
*Please note: I read this book about 2 years ago and my attitude and personality changed for the better as a result. However, 2-3 months later I was back to my old self. The world is filled with negative, self defeating thoughts and you must always work to maintain a positive attitude. It is not sufficient enough to read the book and assume that you have become a changed person for life. Just this past month I read the book again and I have come to the realization in order to maintain the attitude I have today, I will probably have to read this book once or twice a year to defend my mind from all the trash, gossip, and negativity the world brews up every day.
