Earlier this week I wrote about Norman Vincent Peale and positive thinking, and how we now know there is a neurological basis for that practice. I didn’t know that back in the day when I was clinging—yes, clinging—for dear life to his positive words and inspirational writings.
Here is a quote, a scrap really, that I carried in my wallet and planner for years. He truly was getting me ready for recovery:
“A woman who works in partnership with her God becomes self-reliant, positive and optimistic and undertakes her work with the constant assurance of success. She therefore magnetizes her conditions. She draws to herself the creative powers of the universe.”
--Norman Vincent Peale
