Joseph Murphy is clear in his conviction that man alone decides his journey and the journey is guided by the thoughts we think.

This book is so thin. I have completed this book in one day. I didn't liked the book. The only positive I could take from this is, now I have one day read book in my shelve.

Author tried to poured so many thing with minimum and complicated words. Even after reading 10-20 pages I hadn't any idea whats going.

Though I have liked his other books some what more, I would not recommend this book to anyone.
everything he writes is perfect

Joseph in the Bible means disciplined or controlled imagination and we are to be like Joseph in being able to dream. We should clothe our ideas and make them concrete. While the world says "It is impossible; it can't be done" the man of faith, the man with imagination says, "It is done". Through the imagination we penetrate the depth of reality. We want something? We have to picture it in our minds, the giant buildings, offices, factories, stores, etc. knowing how the subconscious mind works. W ...more

Perhaps best known for his outstanding book, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, Joseph Murphy was also the author of more than 30 books, including this small one, Believe in Yourself.

It’s been awhile since I read, The Power of your Subconscious Mind, so I can’t say that I remember it all that well; however, from what I recall, the message in the two books is very complimentary: you are what you think and if you truly wish to be successful you need to use the conscious mind to program the subc

I have already read the book The Power of your Subconscious Mind by him. So, this was like a son to the previous one. I couldn't find anything except the fact that it felt like an outlining of everything of first book. Still, it's a good read and one should read this one in order to understand if they are comfortable with such writings. And, if they are they can preoceed with the other one.

Believe in yourself by Dr. Joseph Murphy is one of the best self help books I've ever read. And he has become one of my favourite Authors/Teachers of all time. I've understood that most of the time in my life is wasted by thinking negative, speaking negative about someone or something. And I can feel the Alchemy in me. And I'll definitely give an obeisance to him. Truly excited, and I've completed reading this book in one day. He is teaching/explaining us that how good or positive thoughts plays ...more

WE Believe in everything and everybody else and also depend only on those believes in case of a dilemma but from this book i was able to understand more than your belief in any religion or anyone in this universe you gotta believe in yourself because self belief is vital in case of living meaningfully and also help you a lot in attainment of success in both career and relationships.

Joseph Murphy has become one of my all-time favorite authors/teachers. My life has transformed in new ways by absorbing his teachings through his writings/books. His writing is easy to understand and provides practical guidance on how to apply the principles/suggestions he recommends in order to live a more full, fun, peaceful and healthy existence as a human being. Phenomenal.

This Book 'BELIEVE IN YOURSELF' was written by the famous Irish author Dr. Joseph Murphy, writer of the Best seller - The power of your subconscious mind. In this book, the author in the beginning might seem vague and wandering around with his connotations and anecdotes here and there, but the author deliberately by repeating the same fact from different angles indirectly reinforces the major crux of his preaching or say teaching - Power within oneself and the art of positive thinking who master ...more

Truly educating.

This book was mind-blowing. It was truly phenomenal, I loved every page of this book and I also loved the writing of this book. It was such an enchanting experience for me that I couldn't stop reading it. I read it in one sit and I feel like I have learnt something really valuable. If you dream, you can make it a reality. The quotes the lines, the words, each and everything was so beautifully described that I was just wondering how beautiful it must have been for those people who

I rated this book with 3 stars primarily because it is not quite what I thought it was when I purchased it. The book is okay. It is about your imagination and how to use it to your advantage. The book is quite a bit more on religion than I thought it was going to be; not that religion is a bad thing, just not what I expected. It is a short read so it would be difficult to suggest that it is NOT worth reading because it is worth reading; just be prepared for how it has been written integrating a ...more

It’s not just positive thinking...

Trust and believe and feel good doing whatever your heart desires. We are connected to The Divine (Source, God, Universe) and we’re created to rule and reign. The problem is that we focus on the things we don’t like/want while hoping and “believing” for the things we want. Our thoughts and feelings have to line up. This is what God responds to: Unwavering faith mixed with positive feelings and straight-up focus and actions on our desires. Learn this and gain eve

Every great person become great by practicing a basic principle of life. That is thinking that '' i am great".
This book reflects the power of imagination, affirmations and visualization.
Have pure faith in god and belief in yourself that all is requure to make all dreams into realtlity.
Also affirmation must be combined with true feeling of having the thing you want strive you to work in the way to have that thing to you.

I think this is the pamphlet version the book: “The power of your subconscious mind”, the author has a little bit of stories embedded in it but mostly revolves just around the core ideas, hence the readers who do not expect metaphors or stories for the said context would really admire the writings in it as it is a very quick read.
Also, got to read the story of the author at the end of it.
Dinah Serritelli
Any book by this gentleman gets a five star vote from me.

I am 80 in a couple of weeks and actually, truth be told Joseph Murphy has always had a place in my bookcase. I am not a one to read every page of anything, but just being able to pick a page and read a a small portion of Dr Murphy's words can change a bleak day into one of Glory.
