Wisdom you can apply everyday. Excellent reminders about the power of your mind. I keep posted Allen's 7 Rules to Train the Will: (1) Break off bad habits, (2) Form good habits; (3) Give scrupulous attention to the duty of the present moment, (4) Do vigourously and at once whatever has to be done, (5) Live by the rule, (6) Control the tongue, (7) Control the mind.

A good resource book to keep close and to keep re-reading.

Some years ago when I played soccer for a living I had moments of weakness and low self-belief. I remember I came across this book totally by chance in a road trip to Rochester, NY. It was destiny! Which is funny because that is one of the central themes in the book: 1. You are the shaper of your own destiny. 2. Fear is your worst enemy. 3. Your thoughts shape your life. "The wisdom of James Allen" was always my "go to book" when things were not going well on the soccer field or whenever I neede ...more

I found this read fantastic.

Though judging by the title I had expected an outdated approach, it turned out to be transcendent of time, marrying practical life-advice to spiritual needs. It’s the best how-to on metacognition and use of the mind that I’ve come across. We all are familiar with the words concentration, meditation, and responsibility, but how do these correlate with our well-being and happiness? Allen provides all of the laws that can empower you when followed, both in terms of skil

This book is about the power of positive thinking. If you can learn to think positively, practice self control and calmness, live with compassion, love and kindness; all that you need to fulfill your life will follow.

“Self-control is strength. Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power.”

My mom gave me this book in 1983 after graduating from NC State University. I have bought over 20 copies of this book to give recent college graduates. I also but the "revised" version of As a Woman Thinketh for the ladies. If someone does a genderless version ... I'm totally down with the concept. From direct experience, you reap what you sow ... it might actually be biblical. In my early 20s this book started me thinking about being "intentional" and building "brain discipline" to encourage po ...more
