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

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 656 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

The power of kindness : the unexpected benefits of leading a compassionate life by Piero Ferrucci( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Piero Ferrucci warns against the dangers of "global cooling." As the pace of living grows faster and the impact of new technologies more insistent, communications become hurried and impersonal. The drive for profit overrides the heart. Warmth and genuine presence fade. The Power of Kindness is a stirring examination of a simple but profound concept. Piero Ferrucci, one of the world's most respected transpersonal psychologists, explores the many surprising facets of kindness and argues that it is this trait that will not only lead to our own individual happiness and the happiness of those around us, but will guide us in a world that has become cold, anxious, difficult, and frightening. In eighteen interlocking chapters, Dr. Ferrucci reveals that the kindest people are the most likely to thrive, to enable others to thrive, and to slowly but steadily turn our world away from violence, self-centeredness, and narcissism - and toward love. Writing with a rare combination of sensitivity and intellectual depth, Dr. Ferrucci shows that, ultimately, kindness is not a luxury in our world but rather a necessity for us all

One simple idea : how the lessons of positive thinking can transform your life by Mitch Horowitz( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In One Simple Idea, Mitch Horowitz tracks the history of the positive-thinking movement from its pioneers to its most dramatic personalities, including Dale Carnegie and Norman Vincent Peale. Positive thinking has been the root of studies on the placebo effect, the twelve-step approach to overcoming addiction, and the mind-body connection in treating illness. And it is central to the American idea of success, as seen in political message such as Ronald Reagan's 'Nothing is impossible' or President Obama's 'Yes we can' and slogans such as the US Army's 'Be all you can be' and Nike's 'Just do it'. Most importantly, One Simple Idea answer the age-old question -- does it work? -- and shows that yes, positive thinking can change the world." -- Back cover

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.

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.
