There are many popular books that discuss the potential benefits of positive thoughts that teaches one to anticipate good fortune. Norman Vincent Peale, a Protestant minister wrote the book in 1952 and many of the principles still apply today. Whatever you set out to do, Peale said expect success. The attitude that you bring into your endeavor will help you achieve the results that you long for.

As long as enthusiasm holds out, so will new opportunities."
