The Power Of One


The new year is a great time to do – New Year’s Resolutions. In fact, I have a 52-week program that can help you achieve your New Year’s Resolutions more easily, but that’s not the purpose of today’s post. As author Bryce Courtenay explains in his bestseller, The Power Of One, it’s all about “One idea, one heart, one mind, one plan, one determination.”

Furthermore, “The power of one is above all things the power to believe in yourself, often well beyond any latent ability you may have previously demonstrated. The mind is the athlete; the body is simply the means it uses to run faster or longer, jump higher, shoot straighter, kick better, swim harder, hit further, or box better. First with the head, then with the heart, you’ll be ahead from the start was more than simply mixing brains with guts. It meant thinking well beyond the powers of normal concentration and then daring your courage to follow your thoughts.”

That should be powerful enough to get you motivated to start writing your New Year’s Resolutions right now, or if you’ve already written them down, review them and take ONE action to making them a reality. Get to it!

  • Great message for this time of year. I mean, it would be good for any time of year- but it seems especially poignant here at the beginning of a new year. I love the self-empowerment of the Power of One ideal. I also enjoy the religious sentiments that can come from that idea. I have placed this book on my reading list, and I am sure I will enjoy it. I have yet to not enjoy a book or link suggested by you.
