The Undefeated Mind by Alex Lickerman

This product was recommended by Stephen Curry from CocoSign

Positive thinking is a way of living rather than a theoretical philosophy. This skill can be learned fast and easily. I would recommend this book as the author assumes that we can institute a life-state to conquer the suffering in this life we are living. He discourages not solving problems and instead embraces them and finds possible solutions. To build strength out of diversity, we need motivation. In this case, the author focuses on wisdom as needed. He urges us to focus on pursuing the inner strength we need to enjoy the complex lives instead of hoping for easy lives.

The Power of Positive Thinking by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

This product was recommended by Paul Miller from CBD4Beginners

The Power of Positive Thinking is great for beginners because it provides the fundamentals of understanding the mind. It’s not a self-help book, but rather an excellent scientific overview which really opened my eyes to how our thoughts are patterns in our brain, almost like repeating tracks on a computer. The book helped me understand why I was stuck in unhappy or negative thought loops. In turn, it has been a really great foundation for me to learn how to spot those loops and make new tracks, which actually changes the wiring of my brain.

Rethinking Positive Thinking by Gabriele Oettingen

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

In the face of real change, friends and family often fall short. We’re told to think about our goals, stay positive, and deal with problems. But for many people, it’s not that simple, and the advice, even though it’s good, doesn’t do much else. When you think about your goals and see the problems that will get in your way, you can think about dealing with them instead of being surprised by them. Because of this, we will have a more positive mindset and a better way to reach our goals.

Bright-Sided by Barbara Ehrenreich

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Positive thinking is a new way to think about history. It might not have been good for civilization to think about the bright side. That’s what Ehrenreich says. The way he sees it, we have become obsessed with positive thinking and had to hide our evil thoughts because of it. The author wants people to take a more balanced, existentially bold approach.

Self-Determination Theory by Richard M. Ryan

This product was recommended by Iryna from foxoffers

This book has been long awaited by the entire scientific community: it summarizes almost half a century of development of Edward Desi and Richard Ryan’s theory of self-determination, which, in my opinion, is the most elaborate and richest of modern psychological theories of personality and motivation. They introduced and substantiated the notion that activity motivation can vary not only in its orientation and strength, but also in its psychological quality; discovered that people have an inherent desire for greater freedom and autonomy; proved the existence of three basic needs in humans, the satisfaction of which makes us happier, and frustration the opposite (and no, these are not money, success, and fame, but autonomy, competence, and relationships); showed that not all success is useful for health and well-being; highlighted the rules of nurturing autonomous Today this theory works on all continents, bears fruit in many applied fields and continues to develop and improve.

The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy

This product was recommended by Samantha Odo from Precondo

This book utterly changed my life, and I’ll never be able to convey how profoundly it affected me. I’m awestruck by the author’s ability to illustrate the power of the mind and its value as a tool. He demonstrates how maintaining a happy attitude can have a positive impact on our outcomes. He also offers some ideas on how to practice positivity even when it’s difficult to see the bright side of a situation. I would strongly advise everyone to read this book. I can assure you that it will be well worth your time.

Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude by Napoleon Hill

This product was recommended by Richard Lubicky from RealPeopleSearch

This book is my favorite because it will show you how to get rid of your mental “cobwebs” to be positive, think clearly, and fully explore the subconscious; how to set a goal, and how to achieve it through determined reflection and optimistic action. You will discover an amazing plan based on a brilliant idea: “What the mind can conceive and believe can be achieved.” I would suggest reading this book to know what others have accomplished and that you can do it, too. The powers of the mind are infinite and this book depicts them perfectly.

It literally changed my life for the better.

Last Spring, acclaimed author Libby Hubscher made a dazzling debut with Meet Me In Paradise, a big-hearted, tender romance with an incredibly moving story.

The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor

This product was recommended by Charmaine Allen from LuvMeKitchen

Shawn Achor the author of this book is one of the worlds leading experts on the correlation between a positive mind-set and how it can lead to happiness and success. This book was easy and fun to read. It doesn’t tell you to think positive thoughts and all will be well, instead it explains some of the science behind the techniques recommended. For example science proves that it takes 21 days to create a new neural pathway. Therefore the author recommends you implement practices such as the three gratitude’s, the doubler and the three smiles to reprogram your neural pathway.
