One simple idea : how positive thinking reshaped modern life by Mitch Horowitz ( Book )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 601 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 ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 7 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 ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 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
Your faith is your fortune by Neville ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Man can decree a thing and it will come to pass. In the beginning was the unconditioned awareness of being; and the unconditioned awareness of being became conditioned by imagining itself to be something, and the unconditioned awareness of being became that which it had imagined itself to be; so did creation begin. Stand still in the psychological state defined as your objective until you feel the thrill of Victory, Then, with confidence born of the knowledge of this law, watch the physical realization of your objective. Neville Goddard was an influential New Thought teacher and an early proponent of the Law of Attraction through his belief that one could create one's physical reality through imagining
El kybalión by Three Initiates ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
He was the father of the occult, the founder of astrology, the discoverer of alchemy. He was Hermes Trismegistus, and as the scribe of the gods of ancient Egypt, he possessed all divine knowledge... which he passed on to humanity, though only those who have been tutored in its wonders can fully understand it. In this extraordinary 1912 book, three secret initiates to his teachings--who remain anonymous to this day--share their insight with all who seek to understand the mysterious underpinnings of the universe and our relationship with it. 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
All these things added by James Allen ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here is your key to a better life. James Allen's ALL THESE THINGS ADDED is a short work of immense power. This brilliant meditation reveals how to live out the Biblical precept: Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all things shall be added unto you. Allen expands this one passage into a complete philosophy of self-development and inner fulfillment. If you pursue holiness in the ordinary hours of life, he writes, you will experience untold joy and an end to personal desperation and self-doubt. What's more, by "seeking first the kingdom of God" you will find that all things necessary for your happiness rush to meet you. ALL THESE THINGS ADDED is equal in power to Allen's landmark work AS A MAN THINKETH, and appeared in the same year, 1903. As a special bonus, this audio edition of ALL THESE THINGS ADDED features a short, inspirational biography of James Allen by historian Mitch Horowitz, who narrates this unforgettable volume
