''The power of the human mind is unlimited, and once you unleash that potential, you can accomplish anything you desire, whether it be reaching for the stars or accomplishing any goal.''

Michael Corthell

"Find and Use Your Inner Power" is a comprehensive self-help guide written by Emmet Fox. This book provides practical tools and guidance to help readers harness the immense power of positive thinking and spiritual principles to bring about positive changes in their lives. The book encourages readers to develop a deep and profound connection with the divine within themselves and to use this connection to create mental equivalents that enable them to manifest their desired outcomes.

Throughout the book, Fox emphasizes the importance of cultivating a positive and optimistic mindset, and using it as a foundation for all of our actions and decisions. He encourages readers to focus on their strengths and talents, rather than dwelling on their limitations and weaknesses. He explains that the way we think and feel about ourselves has a profound impact on our lives, and that we have the power to shape our reality through the thoughts and beliefs that we hold.


The book is divided into ten chapters, each of which explores different aspects of inner power and how it can be developed and utilized to achieve one's goals. Some of the key topics covered in the book include:

  • The basic principles of spiritual living
  • The power of positive thinking and mental equivalents
  • Health and wellness
  • Relationships
  • Career success and wealth

Practical Application:

One of the main strengths of the book is its focus on practical application. Fox provides readers with concrete examples of how they can use the principles he discusses to achieve success and happiness in various areas of life. For instance, he suggests that readers should use affirmations to replace negative thought patterns with positive ones and encourages them to cultivate habits that reinforce those positive thoughts.

“The art of life is to live in the present moment and to make that moment as perfect as we can by the realization that we are the instruments and expression of God himself.”
― Emmet Fox


Another strength of the book is its inclusiveness. Fox draws on a variety of spiritual traditions, including Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism, to illustrate the universality of these principles. This approach helps readers understand that the ideas presented in the book are not tied to any particular religion or belief system, but rather are applicable to all people regardless of their background.

“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer: no disease that love will not heal: no door that enough love will not open...It makes no difference how deep set the trouble: how hopeless the outlook: how muddled the tangle: how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world...”
― Emmet Fox
