I wallowed in worry st) that I could not concentrate on my studies Reading Peale’s book between semesters enabled me to stop comparing myself to others and start working The Paner of Positive Thinking is not Polly Anna optimism, nor is it candy-coated reassurance Simple yes superficial, no To summarize Peale s book does it little justice For the book to help. a person must read it many times and meditate upon it daily W ith those ad monishments here follows a one paragraph sum mary Failure is caused by wallowing in self-pity and negative self absorption VS** succeed when we turn our lives over to a higher power and when we call upon the invisible positive forces in the universe There is a God who cares for us and will help us All we need to do is believe firmly rn this higher power By calling on the power and visualizing success we will succeed Peale s book is divided into 17 chapter' rang mg from “Believe rn Yourself’ to How to Draw I pun That Higher Power Every page is filled with inspirational examples and dynamic quotes No empty words here In chapter one Dr Karl Menninger co founder with his brother of the Menninger Psychiatric (Time in Topeka Kan is quoted as saying “Attitudes are more important that facts ” This sentence brought back memories of a pleasant lunch that I recently had with one of my t>est friends a highly successful vice prcsi dent of sales for a multi million dollar company It is always good to see my friend who's boom mg voice and radiant personality makes everyone he meets brim with happiness After congratulating ourselves on being alive 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 achieve These eager young recruits, too ignorant to know aUrut the effects of the bad economy, were setting sales records whereas the veterans who had superb technical skills but believed business to be bad were unable to make sales He said that he had rather have young enthusiast!* people with poor tec hnical skills than superb technicians w ith a poor attitude He reiterated Karl Menmger t> statement Attitudes are more important that facts Peale tells us visualizing success will help us succeed Another friend of mine recently applied for an exes ut I vc position He was one of four semi finalists from an applicant pool of tai outstanding individuals Preparing lot his final interview he t«egan to visualize exactly how he would feel working for the company He vividly pictured walking down the hall toward work how good it would (eel to sit in his spacious of flee and how excited ta? would ta* aU>ut his challenging position He established a clear im age of himself already having Ute jot) On his final interview he did exceptionally well and he was hired How did visualizing success enable him to get the job’’ In the first place the visualization enabled him to relax and perform confidently during the interview But more important the visualization similar to prayer drew on that higher universal power that allowed “success unexpected in the common hour Ifs nice to have friends who spread warmth and reinforce right thinking Ifs nice to be reminded how far we have come and how much we have to learn on our journey Gudward 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 pleasant Dr Walker is medical director of Hill Country Hospital in San Antonio and has a private psychiatric practice in Sew Braunfels ;
