10 powerful phrases for positive people book review

Updated on October 23, 2013

Why Positive Thinking Matters

So many speakers I hear seem to want to prove their intelligence by telling the audience what is wrong with the world. Many news programs, articles in the media - it seems - focus on tragic stories, and you can find stories about big and smaller problems on the front pages. "This is what sells", we hear.

What I long for, and I hope many more people, is good news, something that can teach me something new and help me solve my day to day problems.

You can find something for which you can be an "expert critic" or you can share with your audience about the good things going on in the world.

The choice is yours.

The Book Presented By the Author

1. "I am wrong"

"I choose to begin with "I'm wrong", because it's the hardest of the phrases to say and genuinely mean." - Rich DeVos points out in the book.

I don't know about you, but it's really hard to admit when I am wrong even to myself, and it is even more difficult to say loud, "I am wrong", especially to those whom we care for most.

By admitting I was wrong, I am ready to deal with consequences of my past where I was wrong and learn something new.

For some years at school I was doing so well, and I was making no mistakes. And then, I made my first mistake, and I did not know how to fix it. And then a number of mistakes accumulated. I had to learn correcting my mistakes.

2. "I am sorry"

Along with saying "I'm wrong", we have to be sorry for it.

3. "You can do it"

4. "I believe in you"

5. "I am proud of you"

6. "Thank you"

7. "I need you"

8. "I trust you"

9. "I respect you"

10. "I love you"
