Giveaway! Ten Powerful Phrases for Positive People by Rich DeVos

The simple act of offering a kind word or two can have power to change lives in positive and profound ways.

In this book, DeVos focuses each chapter on one key phrase, such as "I'm Proud of You," or "I Believe in You," that he has found to help individuals overcome differences, build relationships, instill confidence, change attitudes, and generally make us feel positive about ourselves and about helping others.

Each phrase is illustrated through anecdotes from DeVos's experiences and about people whose lives have been touched either by saying or hearing one of the small but powerful phrases. Anyone with the ability to offer a kind word to a friend, family member, or coworker will benefit from this book's positive, practical wisdom.

My Review:
Written by the co-founder of Amway, a positive-thinking guy, this 5" x 7" self-help book is the perfect size to carry along with you. It can be read in snatches as each of the ten phrases has its own chapter. The author practices being a "life enricher." From a Christian businessman's perspective, this book gives the reader a handle on the art of positive thinking. Use it as a resource tool. It's a favorite of mine.
