"As a Man Thinketh," an excellent compilation of essays by James Allen, is a small but powerful book that holds the keys to success in life. Long considered a classic, James Allen's book has been around since the turn of the century yet remains relevant today. Core tenets of Allen's book include such ideas as "a man is literally what he thinks", or, put another way, "all that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts." I have learned that I cannot blame others for my life, or my state of affairs, "Allen wrote, "they are my creation, the end product of my thoughts and actions." "As a Man Thinketh" teaches that the garden of our mind is only cultivated by us, and the type of crop we consistently yield is solely determined on our positive, enriching, and encouraging thoughts or on our doubting, destructive and negative ones. We alone hold the key to our future, and our success, and our attainments in life. Allen's highly inspirational book cannot help but motivate. "As a Man Thinketh" is one book you will want to keep constantly by your side, especially during times of discouragement, and is a must read if turning negatives into positives is a priority in your life.Über den Autor:
James Allen was 15 when his father, a businessman, was robbed and murdered. He left school to work full-time in several British manufacturing firms to help support the family. He later married Lily L. Allen and became an executive secretary for a large company. At age 38, inspired by the writings of Leo Tolstoy, he retired from employment. Allen - along with his wife and their daughter, Nohra - moved to a small cottage in Ilfracombe, Devon, England to pursue a simple life of contemplation. There he wrote for nine years, producing 19 works.
