“No thought of discouragement or disorder should ever be created, but only
positive assurance, strong thoughts of success, of Divine activity, the feeling that
with God all things are possible, the belief that we are One with that Great Mind.
These are the thoughts that make for success.”

“We can now see how essential it is that thought should be held one-pointed; that we should think always and only upon what we want, never letting our mind dwell on anything else. In this way the Spirit works throu
I found this book packed with knowledge but it didn’t speak to me. Either way, I understood from this book the power your thoughts got over one’s destiny and to always be aware of one’s thought cause in doing so you create your own destiny.
the book is full of theological believes such as God is life..God made human out of himself so human is a representation of God..etc..
personally I don't have problems with the concept of the one creator God ..Allah .. but to say such powerful statements without no whatsoever logic only based on holy books is just not very attractive for the readers

Good book that states some important concepts such as that everything is made of spirit and that we are a part of God. The author goes on to discuss how this knowledge allows us to use thought and feeling to attract good into our lives. The book specifically mentions the Law of Attraction and gives welcome advice for applying the teaching.
Fantastic philosophical read!! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this as it strengthened my own faith and beliefs about the Law of Attraction. I especially enjoyed how he tied God into this, since spirituality is such a big part of my own life. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to strengthen belief in their own abilities to accomplish something.

This is the 1919 version of The Secret. It's all about Law of Attraction and how whatever you imagine in your mind will come to you exactly as you picture it. Total BS - would not recommend this book to ANYONE. Don't waste your time. I wasted mine enough.

Very helpful book to read it.

Has some good ideas. However the Law of attraction is something you need to believe in of course. Generally I would say it are all things that were said before, but nevertheless a nice reminder.

A little to woo-woo for my taste. Filled with vague suggestions of just thinking things into being.

A precious book filled with simple and profound truths. I've gifted this book many times and it has always provoked profound changes in the reader.

Although not as old as some of the original books in the “New Thought” movement, I still consider Ernest Holmes’ second book, Creative Mind and Success, as a classic in the field of personal development.

I have yet to read any of Ernest’s other books, including the predecessor to this book; however, I must say that I enjoy his writing style and I really resonate with his views on the nature of reality and creation. The main premise of this book is that everything in this universe was created fro

One of the most concise explanations of the concepts and practices employed by Science of Mind practitioners. Easy to read and comprehend. A good book to give to someone who wants a quick overview of SOM
