The Power of Positive Thinking in Business
Foreword The Legacy,
by Mrs. Ruth Stafford Peale
It was my husband's insight that we are all born positive thinkers, but some of the traits of positive thinking have become clouded over by the inevitable stresses of our daily lives.
Norman Vincent Peale spent much of his professional life showing people how to recapture their innate positiveness, especially when faced with adversity or challenge.
Norman wanted to bring positive thinking to the business community because business has a tremendous influence on our lives and our culture. Because the rapidity of change in the workplace today is greater than ever, it is especially important for business people to be equipped to meet that challenge with methodologies to manage change. In this sense, The Power of Positive Thinking in Business is a natural extension of Norman's work.
The Power of Positive Thinking in Business is an adaptation of the proven work of Norman Vincent Peale to help you become more effective. In the workplace of the twenty-first century, I am confident you will find it particularly relevant and useful. I hope you enjoy your journey toward becoming a positive thinking person.
