Paul Corke is the Author of two books The New Positive Thinking: In Search of a Positive World and The Master: A Journey of Meaning and Purpose.
Paul's first book The New Positive Thinking: In Search of a Positive World is a self help book that explores how you can be your ideal self to help you achieve your goals and dreams in life.
Paul's latest book The Master: A Journey of Meaning and Purpose explores Paul's theory of psychological intelligence which is built on the concept that we can re-condition the subterranean landscape of our minds to choose to be who we want to be at any time. This is told through the story of Master and the Apprentice and each chapter explores a different landscape of your mind.
Paul will be publishing his next book The Mindset Equation: The Secret to Success which will be available in 2019 and The Master: Developing Psychological Intelligence will be available in 2019.
Experience the journey of a lifetime in search of a positive world and the "Super You" in this rollercoaster ride of self-discovery - The New Positive Thinking.
In this modern digital age of exponential change we have greater insight into the workings of the human brain and the importance of positive psychology. The New Positive Thinking provides a code for living a positive life and provides a rollercoaster ride of self-discovery by challenging the reader to consider what it means to live in a positive world.
Paul provides a different take on positive thinking and shares the significant life experience of being at the "Hillsborough Football Disaster" which has defined his life philosophy.
The book focuses on what motivates man to live as the reader travels back through history to take a closer look at life and destiny. And also how critical "mindset" is to our future success along with the importance of striving to be the best version of ourselves.
On a deeper level the New Positive Thinking asks the reader to consider how responsible he or she is for the person they choose to be, the actions they take and the life they live. It is a journey in search of how we can all make the world a positive place to live and the individual realisation of a positive and proactive way of life.
An introduction to Paul's theory of 'Psychological Intelligence' through the tale of the Master and the Apprentice.
The Master starts with the scene between the Master and the Apprentice who discuss life before a misty sky stretching towards the morning sun with an old temple perched upon the mountainside.
The Apprentice asks the master to teach him about love and life, the mystery and the secret, the essence and the realm, for he desires illumination and enlightenment. A discussion unfolds with the Master being described as the apprentice's inspiration. However the Master makes the points, 'Be your own inspiration and be inspired by being present young one' and 'Each one of us born unique, special and part of the pattern of the universe.' A door opens to the glorious sky and the Master asks the Apprentice to describe what he sees, feels, smells, tastes and hears suggesting that it is an illusion of the mind. An argument takes place with the Apprentice stressing there has to be more for every experience, everything that he sees and feels there is perfection all around with the sadness of humanity and the joy of human life. He asks the Master if he is ready to take the journey and the Master responds 'We are all ready, for where there is a will there is a way.'
From this opening dialogue the reader will understand that the Master and the Apprentice make key points and teachings through simple conversation and that they are about to embark on the journey of the seven noble truths of human dynamics.
The work is complimented with quotes, stories, and Zen wisdom to give the book a feel of mysticism that is contrasted by the Juxtaposition of modern settings and situations. Are you ready to take the journey?

An excellent book on the power of positive thinking. The author clearly knows his subject matter, has done his research and is able to articulate in a way that is both thought-provoking & insightful - a really good read!
This book is refreshing and unique in my experience. The story is based around an Apprentice asking the Master to teach him the 7 noble truths of human dynamics. To me the story is all about the way the apprentice is slowly but surely able to shape his own life. It derives it's strength from it's unusual style - a dialogue between the two. Huge credit to Paul Corke for having the creativity and imagination to find a great and different way to get across really important messages for us all. Big thumbs up!

This a great book that helps you to put life into perspective and provides thought provoking examples of how you can learn, grow and develop through your life experiences. An easy read that you can keep in your bag and refer to for inspirational examples of how to approach what life throws at you! I’ve known Paul for a number of years and learnt a lot from his Leadership Development experiences and positive approach to work and life. A recommended read for leaders and people who want to lead by example and get the most out of life.
