OVER THE BAR

OVER THE BAR

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Norman Vincent Peale is my dear and brilliant friend; a companion who never fails to provide stimulation, elevation, and empowerment of the most positive and forceful kind.
Enjoy his challenging excerpt from his International Bestselling book:
"The Power of Positive Thinking" and throw yourself over the bar.
"A famous trapeze artist was instructing his students how to perform on the high-trapeze bar. Finally, having given full explanations and instruction in this skill, he told them to demonstrate their ability.
One student, looking up at the insecure perch upon which he must perform, was suddenly filled with fear. He froze completely. He had a terrifying vision of himself falling to the ground. He couldn't move a muscle, so deep was his fright. 'I can't do it! I can't do it!' he gasped.
The instructor put his arm around the boy's shoulder and said, 'Son, you can do it, and I will tell you how.' Then he made a statement which is of inestimable importance. It is one of the wisest remarks I have ever heard.
He said,
'Throw your heart over the bar and your body will follow.'
Copy that one sentence. Write it on a card and put it in your pocket. Place it under the glass on your desktop. Tack it up on your wall. Stick it on your shaving mirror. Better still, write it on your mind, you who really want to do something with life. It's packed with power, that sentence.
'Throw your heart over the bar and your body wll follow.'
Expect the best, not the worst, and you will attain your heart's desire."
