It is said, he never gained much fame or fortune... and this unrewarded genius rarely made enough money from his writings, to even cover his expenses. As A Man Thinketh by James Allen, identifies universal laws and applies them to the mechanics of desire and prosperity, and was the 20th century’s first self-help classic! But did you know... As A Man Thinketh was not the only book James Allen wrote? That’s right, James Allen is also the author of over twenty other self- improvement books, which are lesser known, but just as equally powerful, and just as equally life-changing… For over a hundred years, his timeless works have motivated and inspired both men and woman to lead more successful, effective, and peaceful lives! James Allen was a STRONG supporter of ethics in all the areas of our lives. His goal was to reveal universal principles to the masses in order to relieve people of their suffering, empower the individual, and thus uplift humanity. His works focus on teaching individual responsibility, finding the cause of personal problems within our own selves, and revealing how each of us can harness our inner power, to master our own destinies. In Allen’s own words... The Vision of James Allen “I looked around upon the world and saw that it was shadowed by sorrow and scorched by the fierce fires of suffering. And I looked for the cause. I looked around, but I could not find it. I looked in books, but I could not find it. I looked within, and found there both the cause and the self-made nature of that cause. I looked again, and deeper, and found the remedy. I found one Law, the Law of Love; one Life, the life of adjustment to that Law; one Truth, the Truth of a conquered mind and a quiet and obedient heart. “And I dreamed of writing books which would help men and women, whether rich or poor, learned or unlearned, worldly or unworldly to find within themselves the source of all success, all happiness, accomplishment, all truth. And the dream remained with me, and at last became substantial; and now I send forth these books into the world on a mission of healing and blessedness, knowing that they cannot fail to reach the homes and hearts of those who are waiting and ready to receive them.” Every one of Allen’s books are surprisingly straight-forward, practical and easy-to-follow. He never wrote for the sake of just writing, and he never dealt with theories! As his loving wife - Lily once said... “Allen wrote when he had a message, and it became a message only when he had lived it in his own life, and knew that it was good. Thus he wrote facts, which he had proven by practice” And thus Allen teaches us two essential truths: today we are where our thoughts have taken us, and we are the architects - for better or worse - of our futures... In short, “You Are What You Think” As James Allen states positively “That The Mind Is The Complete Master of Your Life” From the smallest circumstances which surround you, to your physical health, to your personal level of abundance... every detail of your life is determined solely by the thoughts you first allow to flourish in your mind!
