Optimal Thinking Book CoverMove over Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Optimal Thinking has become the successor to positive thinking. Hailed by academia and the media as “the essential step above positive thinking,” Optimal Thinking empowers us to be our best in any circumstance. It stops us from settling for second best!

Created by Dr. Rosalene Glickman, repeatedly honored by the media as “Australia’s Most Successful Woman,” Optimal Thinking programs throughout the world are replacing the “think positive!” motto which has been with us for decades.

An evergreen, the book ranked among’s top 10 books in the Applied Psychology, Leadership, Success, Personal Transformation, and Career Guides categories for six years.

Optimal Thinking is the language of our best self. It empowers our highest self to take charge. We ask the best questions, obtain the best solutions, and make the most constructive decisions in every situation — and eliminate “if only..” from our lives!

In today’s competitive world, many positive thinkers still think in mediocre terms and settle for second best. Whenever you think suboptimally, it costs you time, energy, joy and money. You function at your peak when you think in optimal terms. Optimal Thinking — not positive thinking — is the mental basis of peak performance.

What’s most exciting about Optimal Thinking is that everybody can use it. It doesn’t matter what stage of life you are in, or in what circumstance you find yourself — you can use Optimal Thinking to instantly make the most of your life.

This revolutionary book truly empowers you to experience the full power of your mind. You will eliminate self-sabotage, master disturbing emotions, minimize unwanted behaviors, bring out the best in others, and much more. Take the ultimate quantum leap — enjoy the style of thinking that gives you the best chance of having everything you want.
