In "As a Man Thinketh," James Allen reveals how our thoughts determine reality. Whether or not we are conscious of it, our underlying beliefs shape our character, our health and appearance, our circumstances, and our destinies. Allen shows how we can master our thoughts to create the life we want, lest we drift through life unconscious of the inner forces that keep us mired in failure and frustration. "The Vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart-this you will build your life by, this you will become." This principle, which others have called "The Secret" or the "Law of Attraction," was clearly and convincingly stated for the first time in "As a Man Thinketh." This edition features the complete, original text with an appealing new design. Visit www.bestsuccessbooks.net to view our other new, inexpensive editions of the greatest success books of all time.
In seeking for pleasures here and rewards hereafter men have destroyed (in their hearts) the Temple of Righteousness, and have wandered from the Kingdom of Heaven. By ceasing to seek for earthly pleasures and heavenly rewards, the Temple of Righteousness is restored and the Kingdom of Heaven is found. This truth is for those who are ready to receive it; and this book also is for those whose souls have been prepared for the acceptance of its teaching. This version of the classic book includes a biography about the life and times of James Allen.
Can unselfish love save the world? How can we accumulate the essential blessings of a happy life? What emotions must we abandon-and which should we embrace-to find joy? Such conundrums were ever on the mind of James Allen, one of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration and spirituality at the turn of the 20th century. In this crisp, cheerful little book, he explores the possibilities of contentment and comfort the answers bring. A classic of spiritual succor, first published in 1908, this is as vital and as necessary a work as it was a century ago. British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. Best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored many other books about the power of thought including The Path to Prosperity, The Mastery of Destiny, and Byways of Blessedness.
