The Power of Positive Thinking

Social media posts have made it “cool” to be negative and self-deprecating. But there is power in thinking and being positive. Teen hosts, Ruhani and Keethi interview author, publisher, producer, and literary agent, William Gladstone about the The Power of Positive Thinking – Interfaith 21st Century by Hasan Abdullah Ismaik for which Mr gladstone wrote the foreword. The book weaves spiritual wisdom from three different religions, bridging cultural beliefs and offering practical techniques to embrace optimism in a challenging world. Ruhani also discusses how positivity increases wellness, reduces stress, and contributes to a happy life. She even provides an homemade brownie recipe that will make you feel positively euphoric! Keerthi dives into the history of the original author of The Power of Positive Thinking, Norman Vincent Peale, a revolutionary thinker, theologist, and religious leader. Believe in yourself, take control of your life, change your attitude to gratitude, and practice positive thinking. Think positive. Be positive.

The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.” - Norman Vincent Peale
