Thank You Power
Thank You. Can such small words hold life changing power? Yes! Deborah Norville's groundbreaking and persuasive book argues that gratitude is the secret key to unlocking your full life potential. Rooted in science, presented from a spiritual perspective, Thank You Power details the surprising life improvements that can stem from the practice of gratitude. In this eye-opening book, Norville brings together for the first time the behavioral and psychological research that prove what people of faith have long known: giving thanks brings life blessings. Beginning with those two small words, thank you, Norville shows how you can be happier and more resilient, have better relationships, improved health, and less stress. The list of benefits is long. You'll exercise more, be more creative, bounce back more quickly from adversity, have a higher immune response, live longer, be better liked by others, and have more creativity in solving problems. Each of these outcomes is backed up by published research. The key? Gratitude. It begins with thank you. "The mind-set that accompanies those words," says Norville, "and the regular exercise of those words can eliminate the negatives of daily stress and make you better able to deal with future difficulties. Those same two words also build a reservoir of broader thinking that enhances problem solving and keeps you healthy." After two years of scientific research, Norville brings it all together with powerful personal stories of thank you power in action and gives specific steps for you to cultivate thank you power and put it to work in your own life.
