School class discussed Toward the end of the hour a member who has impressed the class with his bright ready wit and warm sense of humor asked the rhetorical What do all of you think of Norman Vicent Peales The Power of Positive Thinking He then went on to answer his ques tion by saying that he has found the book ex ceedingly useful in times of He reported that he felt many people had the wrong concept of Peales Peale contends that while life is the correct attitude will enable us to deal with daily stresses The class comment stimulated me to pull Peales book off the shelf and read through it once As 1 opened those dusty a wave of nostalgia flooded my Two times in my life this book enabled me to overcome When I was about to flunk out of col lege my freshman Peales wise words gave me courage to work Again as a first year medical I felt overwhelmed by feelings of Convinced that everyone in my class was much I wallowed in worry so that I could not concentrate on my Reading Peales book between semesters enabled me to stop comparing myself to others and start The Power of Positive Thinking is not Polly Anna nor is it candycoated yes To summarize Peales book does it little For the book to a person must read it many times and meditate upon it With those ad monishments here follows a oneparagraph sum mary Failure is caused by wallowing in selfpity and negative We succeed when we turn our lives over to a higher power and when we call upon the invisible positive forces in the There is a God who cares for us and will help All we need lo do is believe firmly in this higher By calling on the power and visualizing success we will Peales book is divided into 17 chapters rang ing from Believe in Yourself to How to Draw Upon That Higher Every page is filled with inspirational examples and dynamic quotes No empty words In chapter Karl co founder with his brother of the Menninger Psychiatric Clinic in is quoted as Attitudes are more important that This sentence brought back memories of a pleasant lunch that I recently had with one of my best a highly successful vice presi dent of sales for a multimillion dollar company It is always good to see my friend whos boom ing voice and radiant personality makes everyone he meets brim with After congratulating ourselves on being my friend told of a delightful finding He said that the enthusiasm of a group of young recruits he had recently trained enabled them to make numerous sales that the tired sales veterans were unable to These young too ignorant to know about the effects of the bad were setting sales records whereas the veterans who had superb technical skills but believed business to be bad were unable to make He said that he had rather have enthusiastic people with poor technical skills than superb technicians with a poor attitude He reiterated Karl Menmgers Attitudes are more unportani lhat facts Peale tells us visualizing success will help us Another friend of mine recently applied for an executive position He was one of four semifinalists from an applicant pool of 60 outstanding individuals Preparing foi his final he began to visualize exactly how he would feel working for Ihe company He vividly pictured walking down the hall toward how good it would feel to sit in his spacious of and how excited he would be about his challenging He established a clear im age of himself already having the On his final interview he did exceptionally well and he was How did visualizing success enable him to get the job In the first the visualization enabled him to relax and perform confidently during the But more the similar to drew on lhat higher universal power that allowed success unexpected in the common hour Its nice to have friends who spread warmth and reinforce right its nice to be reminded how far we have come and how much we have to learn on our journey The Sunday School class discussion brought back nostalgic memories of a scared young man bothered by thoughts of inadequacy and made me realize that positive thinking does help make that journey more Dr Walker is medical director of Hill Country Hospital in San Antonio and has private psychiatric practice to New
