Despite being written over a hundred years ago, As a Man Thinketh continues to be an inspiring and practical source of self-help literature. The easy-to-read prose and absence of hype are a breath of life-giving air for those who are drowning in a sea of sensational claims and over-the-top personalities.
I highly recommend this work to anyone looking for a good introduction into self-help literature. However, don’t let its size fool you — there is plenty of meat in this book for you to chew on. In a nutshell, this will book will help you to be more aware of your thoughts and help you understand their importance in achieving the kind of life that you desire. To summarize James Allen’s words, “We do not attract what we want, but what we are.” Only by changing your thoughts will you be able to change your life.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s review. Next week we’ll be taking a look at a book that is currently rocking the business world called, the Power of Nice. Although not a self-help book by definition, my cursory glance into its pages revealed that it contains plenty of principles that can be applied to our own personal lives. So stay tuned…
