    One thought on “Enthusiasm Makes the Difference”

    1. "It has been established by repeated demonstration that a person can make of himself just about what he wants to, provided he wants to badly enough and correctly goes about doing it. (Norman Vincent Peale, Enthusiasm Makes the Difference, Page 427)Enthusiasm will be infused into you as you read this book. The author provides many practical examples of people who were infused by enthusiasm. Some people are naturally enthusiastic and some people are naturally pessimistic. If you are naturally enth [...]

    2. I don't know how Peale's work here deviated so far from the successful communication of concept and practice in " positive thinking." After making my way halfway through the book 3 years ago, I picked it up again to be very quickly reminded of why it slipped away the first time. I had the misfortune of picking the book up again at the point where a client wanted his wife back and went to find her in the garden. Don't expect to be convinced to the level that Carnegie engages an audience (through [...]

    3. Norman Vincent Peale was a well-known Reformed Church in America minister, author of self-help books, and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his work in theology. His best known book it The Power of Positive Thinking. This book, Enthusiasm Makes the Difference might be considered a subcategory of the general concept of positivity, with its focus upon how to generate and maintain enthusiasm throughout life. Peale differentiates positivity as the way one thinks about a problem, ent [...]

    4. A couple weeks ago a fellow Toastmaster mentioned this book in a speech he delivered. Always seeking something new (and not being unaware of my lack of enthusiasm) I purchased this Kindle version of the book.It was okay. Peale's enthusiasm is evident. For that, it is a good enough read. Alas, I am what Peale would describe as a sophisticate, thus struggled with the message. If Peale were alive today, I have no doubt there would have been a pitch to join his "team", ala John Maxwell, for $5,000. [...]

    5. Fairly repetitive, in fact it includes stories that have appeared in his previous books. And, the word enthusiasm could be replaced with "positive thinking" - the book would read the same. I did appreciate his chapter on setbacks and bad things that happen to us. It seems the modern world wants to believe that we can do away with all adversity, but Peale points out that sometimes adversity is what makes us set goals and accomplish something, that adversity promotes growth. He also included a sec [...]

    6. This book made me delve a little deeper into myself and live with passion, with enthusiasm again. It helped me to focus on getting over the barriers in life and taught me the importance of self motivators!

    7. It makes you more aware of all the good in life. Enjoy the moment. That's where you will find happiness. A feel good book.

    8. I read this book as a Stock Broker two years into my new position. I loved this book as I have the others written by this great man. This is a must read self improvement book! Written in 1967.

    9. Self help gem. A bit dated and ultimately inspiration for anything else one might have read. Perhaps overly simple- but still a good reminder.

    10. I have read a lot of books by Norman Vincent Peale, and I think his works are like "miracle pills" for the mind. However, I believe that the problem with his works is that he tried to mix psychology and religion. Most of the time, science and religion are like oil and water: they do not mix. I have no doubts that enthusiasm and "positive thinking" can propel certain people to places. Angela Lee Duckworth even mentioned, from a more scientific perspective, that "grit," or the long-term passion an [...]

    11. Norman Vincent Peale's book discusses the importance of enthusiasm in our daily lives. In old school, anecdotal fashion, Peale provides dozens of examples of how cultivating enthusiasm can help transform the most depressed of people into positive beacons of light in their communities. The underlying theme and point to Peale's argument for enthusiasm, is that it is God who under-girds the spirit of enthusiasm (the Greek root of the word actually means "God-within"). Although I agree entirely with [...]

    12. Awesome bookI love this book. I was impacted with dr peale's wisdom. I recommend this book to everyone who is seeking to accomplish something remarkable in life
