Something You Can Do For Yourself This Year

Everglades City

by Rev. Bob Wallace

In 1952 Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, a minister and author, wrote an outstanding bestseller, The Power of Positive Thinking to demonstrate the power of faith in action. It has helped millions of people achieve fulfillment in their lives. With the practical techniques outlined in his book, you can strengthen your life. You can give yourself the desire needed to carry out your ambitions and hopes. Dr. Peale wrote about how you can learn to expect the best and get it. How to believe in yourself and in everything you do. He showed how to develop the power to reach your goals. And how to break the worrying habit and achieve a relaxed life. If you need to improve your personal and professional relationships, it’s in there. But best of all is, how to take control over your circumstances and be kind to yourself.

It’s like a young girl who was bright and cheerful and always had a smile on her face. She lived with her parents, brothers, and sisters. Despite the hardships of life, she always had a positive outlook on life.

Well, one day, her father lost his job. That caused the family to struggle to make ends meet. Her mother was worried about how they would survive. But the young girl remained optimistic. She believed things would get better. She encouraged her family to stay positive. It was like “the power of positive thinking” that Norman Vincent Peale wrote about in his book. Her positive attitude inspired her family to keep going. They worked hard. And they supported each other. Eventually, things did get better. Her father found a new job. And the family was able to get back on its feet.

Years later, that young girl became a successful businesswoman. She never forgot the lessons she learned as a child. And she always maintained a positive outlook on life. She believed that anything was possible if you worked hard and stayed positive.

As Demi Lovato, singer, songwriter, and actor once said, “Sometimes we’re gonna’ have our bad days, but we must continue to work to be great. Keep smiling. It looks beautiful on you!”
