from Power of Positive Thinking

Below is a quote from one of my favorite books “The Power of Positive Thinking”

Newsham Beck - geograph.org.uk - 1704534

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. But with self-confidence you can succeed. A sense of inadequacy interferes with the attainment of your hopes, but self-confidence leads to self-realization and achievement. Because of the importance of this mental attitude, this book will help you believe in yourself and release your inner powers.

An appalling number of people are made miserable by an inferiority complex. But you need not suffer from this trouble. You can develop faith in yourself.

After a convention, a man approached me and asked, “May I talk with you about a matter of desperate importance to me?” We went backstage and sat down.

“I’m in town to handle the most important business deal of my life,” he explained, “but I don’t believe I can put it over. I am discouraged and depressed. In fact,” he lamented, “I’m just about sunk. Why is it that all my life I have been tormented by inferiority feelings? I listened to your speech tonight about the power of positive thinking, and I want to ask how I can get some faith in myself.”

“There are two steps,” I replied. “First, it is important to discover why you have these feelings. That requires analysis and will take time, and may require treatment. But to pull you through this immediate problem I shall give you a formula. As you walk down the street tonight, repeat certain words I shall give you. Say them over several times before your important appointment. Do this with an attitude of faith and you will receive ability to deal with this problem.” Following is the affirmation I gave him: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13). “Now, follow that prescription, and things will come out all right.”

He pulled himself up, stood quietly for a moment, then said with considerable feeling,“Okay, Doctor. Okay.”

I watched him square his shoulders and walk out. He seemed a pathetic figure; yet the way he carried himself showed that faith was already at work in his mind. Subsequently he reported that this simple formula “did wonders” for him. He added, “It seems incredible that a few words from the Bible could do so much.”

    I have been surfing online greater than three hours these days, yet
    I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s lovely value sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more useful than ever before.
