Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Power of Positive by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Amy Newmark (2012)


This book is subtitled: 101 Inspirational Stories about Changing Your Life through Positive Thinking. It is packed full of submissions made my regular people telling their tales of how positive thinking changed the lives for the better. The book is divided into 11 categories:

  1. The Power of Liking Yourself
  2. The Power of Attitude
  3. The Power of Persevering 
  4. The Power of Relaxing 
  5. The Power of Gratitude 
  6. The Power of Giving
  7. The Power of Dreaming
  8. The Power of Challenging Yourself
  9. The Power of Self-Improvement 
  10. The Power of Watching Others
  11. The Power of Changing Your Thoughts

A lot can be learned from reading this book. The stories demonstrate how focusing on what you want while maintaining a positive attitude gets you the results you want. If you are struggling with negativity, or just going through a tough period in life, you can turn to any one of the categories for inspiration. Reading this book should provide you with all the motivation you need to change your thinking and make positive changes in your life. It also teaches that hope and unfailing determination can create miracles.

This is a thick book, but well worth the effort. The stories are relatable and well written. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the Law of Attraction, or to those just wanting a feel-good type of book on positive thinking.
