Norman Vincent Peale was a minister and author, who gained fame with his bestselling book The Power Of Positive Thinking. A book I’ve read many times, and learned some important life lessons from.

But instead of boring you with details about the life of a minister, take one minute to watch this video, and I DARE YOU not to want to change your life and become a better version of yourself. We’re capable of so much. Let’s start living up to our own potential.

Want some immediate motivation and inspiration? Here’s my four favorite quotes from Norman Vincent Peale:

  • Change your thoughts and you change your world.
  • Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.
  • Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
  • We’ve all heard that we have to learn from our mistakes, but I think it’s more important to learn from successes. If you learn only from your mistakes, you are inclined to learn only errors.
