Joel Osteen's book You Can, You Will is what I like to call a spiritual pep talk. Its message is somewhat like the advice we get from our doctors—stuff we already know but somehow have to be told over and over.

In the first part of the book or CD (I had the audio version), Osteen convinces us that it is up to each of us to choose the positive or negative aspects of life. Of course by the end of that section, the reader is going to strive for the positive.

After getting us into the frame of mind that we could (and would), he gives us 8 qualities that will help us do it.

The winner is exhorted to remember these 8 qualities:

  • Keep Your Vision in Front of You
  • Run Your Race
  • Expect Good Things
  • Have a Positive Mind Set
  • Commit to Excellence
  • Keep Growing
  • Serve Others
  • Stay Passionate

In each of these qualities the author gives biblical, and events of today, to illustrate and teach us how to deal with the negatives. From time to time, like our visits to our doctor, we need to reread (or listen) to certain sections of the book.

Each time you finish a section, your reaction may be this: things are not as bad as they seemed—I can do this. While reading any section, the reader senses an uplifting feeling, and by the end of the book, he/she is convinced—he can and will do this. Keep your book or CD for frequent visits.
