Esstentially, Coué in this work emphasizes the role of positive thinking in self-improvement. In this way he implicitly proposed bridging the gap between behavior and cognition, a concept offered over 250 years earlier by Blaise Pascal. But can reciting a mantra involving positive thoughts improve one's outlook? There is some evidence that it can.
Emile Coué offers a number of practical suggestions for cognitive self-improvement in this very readable work. It is equally recommended for both the scholar in the history of psychology as well as the everyday reader seeking practical suggestions in management of thoughts.
So: "Each day, and in every way, I am getting better and better." Putting a different cognitive spin on things can improve one's life. --< Less
