Thankful people seem to have found the key to a life filled with happiness. What if your life could change by simply believing in the power of thank you? Deborah Norville in her book Thank You Power: Making the Science of Gratitude Work for You will prove to you that thank you can be an unstoppable happiness magnet.
I enjoyed the CD version of the book Thank You Power because I could listen in the car to something upbeat and empowering even while stuck in traffic. There were times though when I wanted to actually see the scientific data she mentioned. It was then I wish I had gotten the book.
Deborah Norville is a true communications professional! This CD is done in a professional manner and with an easy and yet attention-holding style. This audio version was a pleasure to listen to and learn from. I found myself making the time to listen to the entire book over again (when I wasn’t driving) so I could make notes. There were many “aha’s” I wanted to remember and share with family and friends. Things we already instinctively know but often times forget to put into day-to-day practice.
Here are a few of the things I wanted to remember:
1. There are many powerful reasons for living in gratitude.
2. Gratitude is an unstoppable mind-set for success and happiness.
3. The scientific studies are interesting, well documented and persuasive.
4. Living in gratitude opens your mind to being more creative when faced with challenges.
5. Grateful people focus more on the positive events from the past and they don’t waste time dwelling on the negatives.
6. Grateful people are more popular because they are a pleasure to be around.
7. We all respond positively to praise and encouragement!
I was especially touched by the stories of people who had faced physical trauma and yet found the strength to live in gratitude. Many people would have given up or even worse. The people who practiced the power of thank you were able to turn a trauma into a positive not only for themselves but for others as well.
This CD is peppered with positive quotations, true-life examples, scientific documentation reinforcing the power of thank you and Deborah’s “Thank You Power Note” activities.
“We will be happier, healthier, and better able to handle the stresses of daily life simply by saying thank you.” Before I listened to this book I agreed with the statement written on the CD box. After listening to Thank You Power I know it is an absolute fact!
We all have choices. We can focus and dwell on the negatives or we can live in a positive state of gratitude.
I highly recommend Thank You Power: Making the Science of Gratitude Work for You to everyone who wants to live his/her life with more inner peace and happiness. Gratitude is a powerful and positive life-changing attitude!
