Marcie Recommends: Believe You Can: The Power of a Positive Attitude

Believe You Can by John Mason

Believe You Can: The Power of a Positive Attitude by John Mason is an easy-to-read book of positive words and affirmations. I saw this book in Walgreens on Tuesday. After flipping through a few pages that really made me feel good, I knew I just had to have it. I purchased it on Wednesday, and I pick it up every chance I get.

It is a book of small topical chapters, with the first one encouraging you to be yourself.  But, check out some of the other quotes that really jumped out at me.

“You can succeed at almost anything for which you have limitless enthusiasm. The world belongs to the enthusiastic.”  Even if you don’t have the talent to do what you want to do, your enthusiasm will keep you going and attract the people you need to make it happen.

“Every problem introduces a person to himself.”

“To finish first you must first finish.” Just know that starting is the biggest challenge.

“Persistent people begin their success where most others quit.”

“Most people’s ‘life regrets’ come from failing to act when they have an opportunity.”

Here’s the best one I read today was by Edward H. Richards:

“A wise old owl sat on an oak;

The more he saw the less he spoke;

The less he spoke the more he heard;

Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?”

Don’t walk out to get this book. Run! It will bless your spirit!

Do you have any books you’d like to recommend that will help move people forward in life and purpose?
