Joyce Meyer has a knack for coining phrases - her fans call them "Joyceisms" - and one of her best loved is "Where the mind goes, the man follows." This was the basis for Battlefield of the Mind, and in her latest book, Meyer provides "power thoughts", bringing the reader to a new level of ability to use the mind as a tool to achievement.
In Power Thoughts, she outlines a flexible program to turn thoughts into habits, and habits into success. Sections include:
Nobody has more of a "can-do" attitude than Joyce Meyer. Now you can, too.

Really wish it would have been narrated by the author. I spend most of my time listening in the car and its hard to listen to. But I do enjoy the content.
This book touches on issues everyone of us deals with, almost daily. I have listened to the chapter on discipline several times! It contains excellent suggestions for life living! The only downside is I am not crazy about the narrator's voice--not a voice you want to listen to for this long of a book!
If you don't know Joyce Meyer ~ you need to find out who she is. I just got home from a woman's conference, where Joyce Meyer was speaking on the power of thoughts. I not only got the audible, but I am getting the book and the dvd set, just on this book. Whether you believe in God or not, are Christian or not, are religious or not, this book is for you. Could you imagine just for yourself, how others would act around you, if you could find something to be positive about in the midst of a circumstance or just simply find a way to deal with your circumstance by being in control of your thoughts? This book will teach you that. Give it 21 days to create a new habit. ENJOY!!! the only disappointing side of this book is that Joyce Meyer herself is not the one reading it.
"Keep it on 2x..."
**I would not purchase an audiobook narrated by this person again.**
The narrator reads very very slowly and her annunciation is totally unnatural. I honestly had the book on 2x speed and it was more bearable to listen to.
This book was encouraging. I have a real problem with negative thinking, and it has helped me reevaluate my thinking.
I disagree with her presentation of prosperity though. God calls us to trust in him for what we need and them to be content, but that we should ultimately focus on heavenly things. She overemphasized material things.
Her intent is good, but the theology seems a bit shallow and focused on temporal things rather than eternal.
"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal." Matthew 6:20
"An Excellent Book to Give you Strength"
I love Joyce Meyer's books. I always finish her books feeling empowered and in control of even the most challenging circumstances. I also like the fact that these are Christian books vs. those do it yourself new age beliefs. It's comforting to know how much Christ loves us and how He is always there to help and all we have to do is believe and ask. An A++++ must read.
"Very Detailed Process for Improving Your Thinking"
This is the best book Joyce Meyer has written to date. She lays out a progressive plan for improving your thinking, getting rid of bad habits and improving your enjoyment of life. Each Power Thought is described in detail with Biblical references to back up the ideas she presents. She does an excellent job of using research material from experts in neurosciences and psychology to reinforce the process of improving our thinking and changing our lives by changing our way of thinking. Very good book for people who live in depression, fear, or who just want to improve their outlook on life in general. Everyone can benefit from at least some of the truths presented in this book.
"WONDERFUL CONTENT BUT LACKS IN NARRATION"
While I LOVE the content of this audiobook and will continue to use as a study guide, I am not a fan of the narrator. She has narrated other audiobooks I have by Joyce and I get distracted every time by the mechanical, unemotional reading. But overall, Power Thoughts has addressed every area in my life that I have struggled with and feel the value is unbeatable.
So many topical issues are packed into one book
Not sound so mechanical and unemphatic in the reading. It sounds emotionally void.
Among many...realize my value in God's eyes regardless of other influences. I love that action plans were included for self evaluation.
"I listen repeatedly."
Regardless of the depth of your relationship with God, this book is relatable, applicable and honest. Easy to listen to and apply immediately. It's brought a great deal of focus to what's on my mind, how my attitude can influence a situation and how to control my thought pattern.
One of the quotes Joyce reiterates is "Where the mind goes, the man follows." The application of the principles taught have brought a new sense of calm & stillness to my scattered mind. I listen to it daily... even if only for a few minutes to reset my train of thought, perception & attitude. Prior to this book, I would have considered myself a moderate-highly positive person and the book didn't change my opinion on my disposition but it did change the way I allow myself to think about things.
I was raised in a Christian family but I wouldn't consider myself a religious person. Something lead to read Joyce's book "Battlefield of the Mind" and I felt tremendous peace from the message so I downloaded this one. I've been very moved by the scriptures, her explainations & teachings and have started reading daily devotionals.
I'm not a fan of the narrator. I really want to be as I listen to this book frequently and she narrates several of Joyce's other books. I can't get over her flat reading. At times, she breaks her monotone but it seems fake, forced and unnecessarily dramatic. Definitely not a deal breaker for the book but if it was re-recorded by someone else, I'd pay to download a different version.
loved it! I read a little each day liked that it could be done 1 a week for 12 weeks or 1 a month that for 12 months got a lot out of this book thank you Joyce for again sharing your knowledge and wisdom with everyone
"very happy with the content"
The principles in this book is made easy to understand. and the content was great. Thank you Joyce for the input into mt life. and thanks be to God for the inspirational insight you gave to Joyce
Great book , inspiring, funny and typically Joyce Meyer, practical tips for positive thinking in bite size chapters
"Practical and Appliable"
Sometimes you listen to a book or read it and struggle to apply it but I find that Joyce has a way of making things very practical and hitting a wide audience and many levels of understanding. This book has been particularly helpful to me. Applying the principals has really shown fruit in my life and I can honestly say that if your thought life needs help or improvement then this and battlefield of the mind are musts for you. However, as Joyce says listening is not enough, you must apply the principals it teaches. I also found that Sandea McCollom is a good narrator and easy to listen to.
Couldn't listen for more than a few minutes - preachy, cliched and very very very boring.
"New age teaching and Christianity not Biblical"
Please pray for discernment when reading as forewarned about false teaching in the last days.
