James Allen's classic guide to harnessing the power of your own mind
Also includes the bonus book From Poverty to Power
In As A Man Thinketh, New Thought teacher James Allen reveals the fundamental truth of human nature: “A man is literally what he thinks.” Allen’s deceptively simple principle has changed the lives of millions of readers, making As A Man Thinketh a classic bestseller for decades. In addition to the original text of As A Man Thinketh, this edition also includes Allen’s deeply thoughtful work From Poverty to Power.
Allen explains that our character, identity, ability, and success are all determined by the thoughts in our minds. Instead of finding ourselves victims of the world, each of us has the ability to shape and define our own destinies. Finances, health, social status, and success are all external manifestations of the thoughts that populate our minds. Allen offers his readers an opportunity to seize control of their minds and create the lives they’ve always imagined.
This edition of As A Man Thinketh is part of the new Basics of Success series, a collection of everyday guidebooks for everyone looking to improve their life.
About the Author
James Allen was born in Leicester, England, in 1864. He took his first job at age 15 to support his family, after his father was murdered while looking for work in America. Allen was employed as a factory knitter and a private secretary until the early 1900s, when he became increasingly known for his motivational writing. His 1903 work As a Man Thinketh earned him worldwide fame as a prophet of inspirational thinking and influenced a who's-who of self-help writers, including Napoleon Hill.
