This final post in the series will speak to people of faith. If that is not you, read on anyway, you may glean some valuable insights.
Dr Peale says, “There is a Higher Power, and the Power can do everything for you. Draw upon it and experience its great helpfulness. Why be defeated when you are free to draw upon that Higher Power? State your problem. Ask for a specific answer. Believe that you are getting that answer. Believe that now, through God’s help, you are gaining power over your difficulty.”
“Hope” is commonly used to mean a wish: its strength is the strength of the person’s desire. But in the Bible, hope is the confident expectation of what God has promised and its strength is in His faithfulness.
I’m happy to talk to you if you want to reach out.

🤔 What is one thing you could put into action right NOW?
This post is based on the book “The power of Positive Thinking” by Norman Vincent Peale.
David joined the Royal Australian Navy in March 1981 as a recruit electrical sailor. He commissioned in 1984 and learned Seamanship and Navigation followed by a specialist career in Information Technology. The Navy taught him the influence of leadership and coaching on realising extraordinary business outcomes.
Retiring from the Navy in 2001 following a 20 year career, he moved into Information Technology Service Delivery and Project Management. For 19 years, he has worked in consulting and permanent roles in the Public Service, Private and Not-For-Profit sectors. David has owned several companies and been on the management boards for several organisations. His life journey has brought together coaching and mentoring.
David believes in the potential that lies within each and every one of us. If we are open to transforming our minds by renewing the way we think, we will dramatically increase our freedom to succeed. Why? Because he knows that the human potential in the mind far exceeds our known abilities.
A coach doesn’t need to know more than the coachee. They need to have faith in the process, to know that people can achieve their goals if they put their mind to it. They need to be asked the right questions, encouraged towards results and kept accountable to achieving their goal.
Renewing your thinking. Transform your business.
