One of the most powerful forces in business today is the positive psychology movement -- overcoming self-defeating attitudes and developing our talents and positive traits. Much of the new thinking stems directly from the concepts in Norman Vincent Peale's classic bestseller, The Power of Positive Thinking, which has sold over 22 million copies.
After years of extensive research with the Peale Center and major corporations nationwide, Scott Ventrella has adapted these concepts to form a systematic program for people in business so that they can achieve greater levels of personal and professional performance. This audiobook provides a practical way for each of us to actually develop and strengthen the ten traits of a positive thinker.
The Power of Positive Thinking in Business encourages businesspeople at all levels, disciplines, and functions within an organization to concentrate on objective, rational thinking instead of self-limiting beliefs and negative self-talk. The result is an increased ability to deal effectively with tough situations and difficult people, in both business environments and personal lives. Together, rational thinking and the ten traits of a positive thinker can turn defeatist behavior into productive actions that will overcome the toughest of challenges with powerful, positive results.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 1/12/2014

    " The idea of the power of prayer as a constant communication with God that becomes postive thinking every hour of every day is an awesome concept. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/11/2014

    " Considering that it was written in 1952, this is a good starter book of the self-help genre for that age, I think. What applies today is how steeped it is in the power of prayer, which is something I believe in too. But, I do think it misses a lot of the deeper thought-provoking analysis and reasoning that contemporary psychology has added to the self-help genre since the 50s. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/8/2014

    " This book was given to me by a cab driver in Austin, Texas. He told me that this book changed in life and after reading a few pages I could see how it did. The book has a very 'Christian' core (with lots of Bible passages and references); but the overall message of positive thinking and how you can improve your mindset to attain happiness makes this a great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 12/24/2013

    " Daily living has many ups and downs and sometimes those downs can grab hold of your spirit and keep you from living a fuller life. I think this book is worth reading to gain some insight on how to bring yourself out of the doldrums. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 12/24/2013

    " Wonderful book!! As dr Peale says," this book is simply a series of practical & workable techniques for living a successful life." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 12/20/2013

    " This was the best D.I. find EVER. Something about the worn look of the book stood out to me hidden in the piles of books at Deseret Industries. This book meant the world to me my junior year of college - helped me to stay positive and not to sweat the small, unimportant things (I'm talking about you, Wah-wah! :)) Just kidding... not really. I probably drove my roommies nuts with the quotes and FHEs that I drew from my good buddy Norman. "

    " The original self-help book and my favotite - all the others are based on this premise of you are your thoughts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shari | 9/6/2013

    " Such an inspiring book and one I read every 2 or 3 years. Based on biblical principles that include some of my favorite verses like Philippians 4:13 " I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." and Romans 12:2 "...be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind..." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/24/2013

    " There is a very good reason that this book has been a best-seller for years. Who wouldn't want to learn more about how to think positively? Again, I wish this was required reading for all high school students. "

    " You know how some books are hard to put down? Well this one is hard to hold onto. The urge to hurl it across the room is almost irresistible. In the end, I gave in to the urge. Utter drivel. Avoid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 11/5/2006

    " This book is a powerful resource for those who wish to become better people. I would have given it five stars (*****) but some of Norman Vincent Peale's theology and ideas I disagree with. Peale was an amazing man who left a great legacy. His works are worth reading! "

    " A glass of sparkling mineral water for the mind, add your own ice and a slice of lime! "
