Today I have a link to a very intelligent conversation about hope and optimism in medicine.  Talk of the Nation: Science Friday host Ira Flatow interviews Dr. Jerome Groopman about his book The Anatomy of Hope: How People Prevail in the Face of Illness. This episode is from November 2004. If you are battling a chronic or severe illness or know someone who is, this interview may be very encouraging.

While affirmations and positive thinking are powerful tools to combat our daily struggles and help us achieve our goals, their role chanes when faced with serious illness. This interview underscores the point that positive thinking is a not a magic bullet that cures serious disease. It is, however, a significant factor that contributes to the success of treatments, the patient’s outlook, and quality of life.

Listen to the interview. Runtime is about 24 minutes. The interview opens in Windows Media or Real Player so that you can listen while working on other things.

Be peaceful Be positive Be prosperous!

My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
