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

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.
I was the one who blamed god for the bad things happening to me but Dr. joseph murphy made it clear that god and

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

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 every

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.

Another gem of a book by Dr. Murphy. Excellent.

Another great book by Dr. Murphy. Believe in yourself. Yes you have to believe in yourself by giving positive affirmations and it becomes subjective reality. Great book. Worth a read!!!

I would say, " Don't judge a book by its cover and size". The book has so much to offer. Purely motivational and acted like a guiding light. After the read, felt so good and rejuvenated with renewed energy within. Loved it.

Good read

Excellent narration. Deep discussion with a truly inspired meaning. Dr. Murphy makes the thought of success and the actuality of success attainable. His knowledge of ancient religion and inclusion with Christianity ensures everyone may achieve the same results.
