Item description for The Everyday Visionary: Focus Your Thoughts, Change Your Life by Jesse Duplantis...
Overview Discusses how Christian readers can use positive, determined thoughts and their relationship with God to help realize potential and achieve goals and success in life.
Publishers Description One of the world's most humorous and dynamic ministers inspires readers to realize their potential and fulfill their dreams using the power of "determined" thoughts. Life is about dreaming, doing, and enjoying yourself in the process. Sometimes it might seem as if your dreams are just too wildly improbable, or there are too many obstacles standing in your way, or you've missed your window of opportunity. But if those dreams are divinely inspired, hope is far from lost. You just need to know how to visualize the path to your dream to make it a reality. Born a poor Cajun boy in south Louisiana, Jesse Duplantis was a rock musician in his early years and, after a life-changing experience with God, became one of the most candid, and popular, ministers of the Gospel today. For thirty years Jesse Duplantis has demonstrated what life can be when you focus on finding your personal path and nurturing a closer relationship with God and Jesus Christ. Jesse believes God can help anyone to succeed--no matter who you are or where you come from. Weaving visionary-style thinking with powerful life principles and stories from his own life, Jesse shares what destiny "really" is, how to find yours, and how to avoid letting others kill your joy. You'll also learn about the "Greatest Weaknesses" and "Destiny Killers" that have prevented people from achieving their goals. Other key topics Jesse explores include: - The amazing power of human imagination: God gave it to you for a reason - The strategic power of "determined" thoughts: Learn to use them and see results. - What to do if you feel it's too late for your dream: God-given dreams have no expiration dates. - Why you can't have what you speak against: Use the magnetic power of words to draw in what you know is yours. - How to overcome discouragement: It's okay to shut the door on negativity. - The big picture: You are important to God, and your dreams and visionary-style thinking may affect future generations. As Jesse says, "Somebody is going to succeed...why not "you?"" You can experience real joy, ful-fillment, and success by following God's path to your dreams
From Publishers Weekly Seeing is believingliterally, for Duplantis, a rocker turned Christian preacher who is master of a multimedia ministry empire. Duplantis wants readers to start using the mind of Christ to create a mental map filled with determined thoughts that will help them first envision and then fulfill their idea of success. If readers can imagine it, it can happen. Nothing is impossible for Duplantis, who frequently turns to the Bible for advice and says that God is watching constantly (Duplantis's God keeps report cards on everyone). Though at times Duplantis offends, especially when discussing Muslims, he broad-mindedly claims that all people can become visionaries, even nonbelievers. This claim falls apart as the book moves forward, however, since Duplantis's accounts of personal changes as well as his prose are all thoroughly Christian. The author's heavy use of exclamation points makes the pacing frenetic as he bellows at readers to shepherd their dreams into reality. While some Christians may be inspired by this aggressive approach to prosperity theology, others will prefer a softer sell. (July 8) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
