Positive Imaging: The Powerful Way To Change Your Life

Updated on July 10, 2011

Change your thoughts change your life

Positive Imaging by Norman Vincent Peale is another amazing addition to his collection of positive self-help publications. Norman Vincent Peale is one of the most prominent purveyors of the ideas of positive thinking and positive imaging. The belief system that one achieves anything by modifying the thought patterns. You can change your life by simply thinking in a different way.

I was introduced to Norman Vincent Peale when I was just nine years old. My father gave me the book The Power of Positive Thinking. Ever since then I have not looked back. This book teaches you to practice imaging, which is a way of using your mind to clearly envision a desired goal. The point of this is to keep that image in your mind until it penetrates your subconscious mind. Once it has been assimilated into your subconscious mind you can connect with certain energies that you would not have been able to before.

The concept of imaging has been around for centuries, it was outlined in the Bible with the phrase “As a man thinketh, he is.” Meaning that if you think and believe something that is what you are. Therefore, your thoughts have immense power. Many people do not realise the power of their minds. Positive imaging can really can change your life; you just have to do it correctly. Once you learn how to do it correctly, it really is powerful. It worked for me, I went through a stage of experiencing severe depression, and low self-esteem and I managed to break out of it with constant and intense positive imaging. I am not going to lie though; it does take a ridiculous amount of focus. You have to almost isolate yourself to get it right. It is like intense meditation, the book teaches that with this method you can transform your relationships, get out of debt, improve your health, and achieve any goal you put your mind to.

This book is perfect for anyone who is constantly thinking negative. It is perfect for anyone who wants to achieve something in life. For example, you are a single mother, need positive encouragement to get out of debt, get a job, and turn your life around. This book is perfect for that, Norman Vincent Peale outlines everything in it so clearly and so concisely, you will constantly keep referring to it.

Positive imaging by Norman Vincent Peale really does teach you to take charge of your life. Control your own destiny and start living the life you want to live. I am a major fan of positive thinking and the belief that anything is truly possible. If you do not believe this concept then now is the time to start. This book can help you to understand the concepts and help you to put them into practice on a daily basis. Never underestimate the power of your thoughts because they really can change your life. If you did not know this, read this book and you will realise that you really do have the power within yourself to change everything in your life.
