The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale (1952) Peale wanted to make the positive-thinking philosophy, once rooted in mystical and magic terminology, palatable for church-going Americans. This minister’s new drum beat made “positive thinking” into a common term via this book. Filled with unique and powerful ideas, Peale’s book stimulated the fields of self-help, religious counseling, spirituality, and became the foundation philosophy for today’s prosperity gospel.
The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles written in 1910. Wattles, a Quaker minister was not interested in “getting rich” but in building a socially just economy as shown by mass abundance. This concise pocket book combines the New Thought movement’s money-seeking aims with social ideals. This old personal development classic was a key influence on documentary The Secret, which failed to mention the author’s social and civic radicalism. The book highlights the ideals of the early days of positive thinking.
