One simple idea : how positive thinking reshaped modern life by Mitch Horowitz( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the millions-strong audiences of Oprah and The Secret to the mass-media ministries of evangelical figures like Joel Osteen and T. D. Jakes, to the motivational bestsellers and New Age seminars to the twelve-step programs and support groups of the recovery movement and to the rise of positive psychology and stress-reduction therapies, this idea--to think positively--is metaphysics morphed into mass belief. This is the biography of that belief. No one has yet written a serious and broad-ranging treatment and history of the positive-thinking movement. Until now. For all its influence across popular culture, religion, politics, and medicine, this psycho-spiritual movement remains a maligned and misunderstood force in modern life. Its roots are unseen and its long-range impact is unacknowledged. It is often considered a cotton-candy theology for New Agers and self-help junkies. In response, One Simple Idea corrects several historical misconceptions about the positive-thinking movement and introduces us to a number of colorful and dramatic personalities, including Napoleon Hill and Norman Vincent Peale, whose books and influence have touched the lives of tens of millions across the world." -- from publisher's website

How to attract good luck : and make the most of it in your daily life by Albert H. Z Carr( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luck is not chance-it can be cultivated. This engaging guide shows how to attract "chance" opportunities, and avoid "bad luck," in ways that will dramatically improve your life. Why do some people seem to have all the luck? According to writer and economist A.H.Z. Carr, there's much more to luck than just the random caprices of fate-"luck" is an accessible mind-set that anyone can achieve. The difference between "chance" and "luck," says Carr, lies in our mental attitude. Carr teaches listeners how to develop their character and adjust their mind-set to pick out the opportunities for happiness and success that are available to us all, but which most unthinkingly pass by. This is no volume of superstition-this is a real guide for people who want to tap into the opportunities for a better life that surround us
Self mastery through conscious autosuggestion by Émile Coué( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1922, Self Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion caused a stir throughout the scientific and religious communities. Émile Coué's assertions that the repetition of certain phrases, or mantras, can have a positive effect on the health and happiness of an individual challenged the existing reliance on chemicals and clergy. However, his theories, which are laid out in straightforward detail in his work, were solidly based on his firsthand experiences with patients, including such stalwart methods as conditioning therapy and the placebo effect. Often invited to lecture on the subject, he finally was motivated to commit it to writing by his desire to help people help themselves

An appreciation of Hermeticism, as the basis of all paranormal philosophies still studied today, is an absolute must for anyone fascinated by magic, the supernatural, and the wisdom of the ancients
