AS A MAN THINKETH


AS A MAN THINKETH

Hi:

 JAMES ALLEN’S BOOK AS A MAN THINKETH was written over a hundred years ago. It’s titile

was influenced by a verse in the BIBLE (Book of Proverbs, CHAPTER 23, Verse 7) which briefly

stated “AS A MAN THINKETH IN HIS HEART,SO IS HE”

 

This book is written in terms of responsibility assumption. It opens with the statement:

MIND IS THE MASTER POWER THAT MOULDS AND MAKES,

AND MAN IS MIND, AND EVERMORE HE TAKES

THE TOOL OF THOUGHT, AND, SHAPING WHAT HE WILLS,

BRINGS FORTH A THOUSAND JOYS, A THOUSAND ILLS: —

HE THINKS IN SECRET, AND IT COMES TO PASS:

ENVIRONMENT IS BUT HIS LOOKING-GLASS.

 

CENTRAL IDEAS OF THE BOOK.

 Men do not attract what they want, but what they are.

  • A man is literally what he THINKS, his character being the complete sum of all his THOUGHTS.
  • Cherish your visions. Cherish your ideals. Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that

      forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all

     delightful conditions, all heavenly environment, of these, if you but remain true to them your world will

     at last be built.

  • The soul attracts that which it secretly harbors, that which it loves, and also that which it fears. It

      reaches the height of its cherished aspirations. It falls to the level of its unchastened desires – and

     circumstances are the means by which the soul receives its own.

  • Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves, they therefore

      remain bound.

  • Every action and feeling is preceded by a THOUGHT.
  • Right thinking begins with the words we say to ourselves.
  • Circumstance does not make the man, it reveals him to himself.
  • You cannot travel within and stand still without.
  • As the physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training, so the man of weak

     thoughts, can make them strong by exercising himself in RIGHT THINKING.

  • Every man is where he is by the law of his being; the THOUGHTS which he has built into his character have brought him there, and in the arrangement of his life there is no element of chance, but all is the result of a law which cannot err
