Bob Knight, former Indiana head coach, takes the opposing view to Norman Vincent Peale’s The power of Positive Thinking. In his Book, The Power of Negative Thinking ($14). Bob explains that negative thinking will actually produce more positive results, Whether that be in athletics or everyday life. Instead of focusing on the positive, Bob believes you should focus on the things that could wrong and work to prevent them. Sounds like classic risk management, but I’m sure Bob has an original spin on it.
