Chicken Soup for the Soul,
Power of Positive
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, a noted clergyman and the author of The Power of Positive Thinking, said “The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results.” The Little Engine said, “I think I can, I think I can, I know I can, I know I can.”
Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Power of Positive showcases everyday people with not so everyday challenges who, through their implementation of the Positive, overcame adversity; changed their lives; and powerfully impacted family, friends and strangers. Contributing author, Cindy Charlton, shares a time when her son was reeling from the impact of his mother's illness and his father's battle with cancer--too much for one little boy. Cindy chooses her words carefully, and uses her powerful love for him to bolster his self-confidence. Using a positive approach, she redirects her son and turns his anger and resentment into feelings of empowerment and accomplishment.
