Norman Vincent Peale

Norman Vincent Peale (May 31, 1898 – December 24, 1993) was an American minister and author known for his work in popularizing the concept of positive thinking, especially through his best-selling book ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’. He served as the pastor of Marble Collegiate Church, New York, from 1932 until his death, leading a Reformed Church in America congregation. …Peale’s ideas and techniques were controversial, and he received frequent criticism both from church figures and from the psychiatric profession.

“Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture… Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.”

Most of our success or failure depends on what is going on in our minds.  If you think you will succeed, you will.  If you are convinced you will failure, then you also will!

The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent PealeNorman is the ‘father’ of positive thought. He gives us a ‘formula’ for helping achieve success through programing our mind for success.

If you have a vision or idea you want to make happen, spend time following his advice:  Picture the idea or goal in your mind, seeing the idea as a winner, and feel the success you have created.

Through this process, your mind will start to create your dreams!

Today’s business tip is from … Mary Kay Ash
Mary Kay Ash

Mary Kay Ash (May 12, 1918 – November 22, 2001) was an American businesswoman and founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, Inc.  Ash went to work for Stanley Home Products. Frustrated when passed over for a promotion in favor of a man that she had trained, Ash retired in 1963 and intended to write a book to assist women in business. The book turned into a business plan for her ideal company, and in the fall of 1963, Mary Kay Ash launched Mary Kay Cosmetics.

“Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around his or her neck that says, ‘Make me feel important.’ Not only will you succeed in sales, you will succeed in life.”

Mary Kay -- You Can Have It AllObviously, Mary Kay knew how to treat people.  She understood the value of people and how to make them feel they were valuable.

Another of her quotes, along the same lines:

“No matter how busy you are, you must take time to make the other person feel important.”

How many times have you used this to encourage your children.  Or how about when an employee did an extraordinary job on a task.

Let’s follow Mary Kay’s example and treat everyone we meet as important as they are!

Michael J. Fox

Inspirational Biz Tip from Michael J. Fox

Today’s Business Tip from Michael J. FoxMichael J. Fox

Michael Andrew Fox,  (born June 9, 1961), known professionally as Michael J. Fox, is a Canadian-American actor, author, producer, and activist. With a film and television career spanning from the 1970s, Fox starred in the Back to the Future trilogy, where he portrayed Marty McFly. In addition, we won five Emmys, four Golden Globes, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards.  Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, at age 29, and disclosed his condition to the public in 1998. Fox semi-retired from acting in 2000 as the symptoms of his disease worsened.

There’s always failure. And there’s always disappointment. And there’s always loss. But the secret is learning from the loss, and realizing that none of those holes are vacuums.
~Michael J. Fox

Michael is an inspiration to anyone going through extreme difficulties or set-backs.  Instead of viewing his disease as the end of his usefulness, he chooses to learn from the experience.

It is so easy to ‘throw in the towel’ when things do not turn out the way we want.  Giving up is the fastest way to fail — especially for people like Michael.

None of our losses, disappoints or holes are ‘vacuums’  when you chose to see them as a vehicle for growth and learning.

Next time you start to feel sorry for yourself in any circumstance, remember Michael — and be a survivor instead!
