“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
― Norman Vincent Peale
Norman Vincent Peale was a minister with a fascination with psychiatry. He penned 46 books in his lifetime, and the most successful by far was “The Power of Positive Thinking”. Published in 1952, it stayed on the New York Times list of bestsellers for 186 consecutive weeks and sold 5 million copies, making it one of the bestselling religious books of all-time. Although most mental health professionals did not agree with him, many successful business people in the world today credit their success to practising the power of positive thinking. Whether you follow the principles set out by Norman Peale, create vision boards or draw on the Universe through the guidelines of “The Secret” – it goes without saying that a positive outlook in life means a happier life. Even in the face of adversity we need to count our blessings. I’ve met many great people who have inspired me and motivated me in 2015 and I look forward to 2016 with much excitement. In Norman Vincent Peale’s words . . . “Let us move into the New Year with a great sense of the thrill of living.”
Wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year! Stay positive!
