Overview


Ken wanted to find out and write about what drove winners on in the face of defeat and adversity. Was it what they did or thought? Was it goals? Having goals is nothing new. Man has achieved goals since the beginning of time. Was it hard work? Everyone knows you must work hard to achieve goals. After all, the only thing that sits its way to success is a hen. Was it intelligence? Many brilliant people wind up on skid row, and Ken has interviewed them there. Was it wealth? Many wealthy people are unhappy and wind up committing suicide. Then one night Ken watched a middleweight championship boxing match between Sugar Ray Leonard and his opponent, and after hearing the words Leonard’s opponent uttered, Ken realized the words were the key to the secret. As Robert Frost, the great poet said, “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

    Powerful Book to Propel You to Positive Living

    How would you like to be a winner? Do you want to live a life you love? Do you need a gentle nudge to help you on the right path to success? Then pick up "Why Positive Thinkers Have the Power" by Ken Bossone, President of World Positive Thinkers club. <BR/>Written with passion, conviction, and that very vital element--positivity, "Why Positive Thinkers Have the Power" clearly reflects the ten years of diligent research Ken Bossone put into writing it. This easy-to-absorb book gently but firmly guides the reader to achieving a positive attitude, and in turn a happy and fulfilling life, with mini true life stories of famous people throughout history, allowing the poignant messages to sink in easily. Inspirational quotes from well-known people, including professional athletes, politicians, actors/actresses, authors, artists, and scientists, are interspersed throughout the book, providing credibility and confirmation to Ken's own thoughts, research, and personal experiences. I never read self-improvement books, but I find this book thoroughly enjoyable to read; many of the tribulations-to-triumphs stories gave me goosebumps, telling me that I am not alone in scaling steep mountains and crossing deep oceans; and the messages the book convey are thought-provoking and profound. Ken's writing style is no-nonsense and right to the point. I highly recommend "Why Positive Thinkers Have the Power" to anyone who has a strong desire and willingness to be a Positive Thinker and who is truly serious about going for their gold medals in life.<BR/><BR/>--Shirley Cheng, blind and physically disabled prodigy, award-winning author, motivational speaker, poet, author and contributor to 25 books

I've had a smile on my face ever since reading "Why Positive Thinkers Have the Power."

    - I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

    I think the biggest gift it provided me was a capacity to really align my perspective in a way that put me in greater touch with my goals, objectives, and capabilities. The Author informs, and then builds his point with common-sense ideology that when all is said and done, packs a powerfully liberating punch.

    It's really a road map to success, and I found it not just motivational - it's revolutionary!

    A Life Changing Book

    This book offers common-sense answers to lifelong mysteries! The author clearly researched situations, both current and historical, to offer answers to how the "positive thinker" can achieve success. This book allows people to learn how to make positive life changes and inspires us to take the necessary steps in reaching our goals. An exciting book that will keep you reading to learn the simplistic "secrets" that elude us and yet, the ones most search for over an entire lifetime! A great book to motivate and start changing your life!

    Super Gem of a Find!

    There is real power in the words & advice in this book to help you get yourself out of a bad set of life circumstances to achieve more success & esp. peace of mind. Despite some initial skepticism, I studied & pondered it & it had a big effect on me. I feel much better about myself now. Some sort of a magic key in this book. You can't really read it without feeling incredibly motivated. It pounds it & pounds it into you until you "Get it". It pounds out the negative thinking like a sledge hammer. One word- Awesome.
