Traveler wrote:Trump's pastor while growing up was a famous self help author.

" 'I go to church, and I love God, and I love my church,' Trump told the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa last year. 'Norman Vincent Peale, the great Norman Vincent Peale, was my pastor. ... He was so great. And what he would do is, he'd bring real-life situations, modern-day situations, into the sermon. And you could listen to him all day long.' "

Peale's book, The Power of Positive Thinking, was the first book I encountered in the self-help genre. I remember reading it made me feel very good at the time. It felt great to believe that I could have all I want in life just by thinking positive thoughts. I can imagine that listening to his sermons in person filled people with hope and motivation.
Norment Vincent Peeple was a 33rd degree freemason. This power of positive thinking has destroyed humanity. Its satanic thinking along with creating your own reality.

Self help industry is based on Satanism. They only give you info enough to be possessed by demonic energy.

The great Zen teacher and author Alan Watts explained in his talks why self-improvement is a myth and illusion. See below.
