Currently, I’m reading studying “As A Man Thinketh”. Another class master, the author is James Allen, and the book was originally published in 1902. He has written several books and this one deals with the power of thought and the use and application of thought to create happy and beautiful issues. He weaves relevant classic ideas with poetry-like writing.
The book’s underlying concept is that each person holds the key to remake his life and transform his circumstances through thought. Although written in a more formal text than today’s language, it holds an incredible amount of valuable, significant information that can be reflected upon and used in anyone’s life.
This is a small book with only seven chapters –
- Thought and Character
- Effect of Thought on Circumstances
- Effect of Thought on Health and the Body
- Thought and Purpose
- The Thought-Factor in Achievement
- Visions and Ideas
The learnings in this book are the very beginnings of the explosive self-growth and self-development fields, and I highly recommend this book for your library. Within this book are ideas and concepts that will help you help yourself, become thoughtful about who you are, and realize the power and application of your thought has on your current life and future.
A quote from the book on doubt and fear –
“He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure. His every thought is allied with power, and all difficulties are bravely met and wisely overcome. His purposes are seasonably planted, and they bloom and bring forth fruit, which does not fall prematurely to the ground.”
If you’re interested in learning the basics of thought, purposes, and universal divinity, this book is a great place to begin your journey.
