Could the power of positive thoughts change your world?
Could something as simple as changing your mind change your life for the better?
British author James Allen thought so.
His book "As a Man Thinketh" originally published in 1902, explores the concept: "what we think, we are".
In other words if we continually fill our minds with negativity, then that is what we attract and experience in our day to day living. The opposite, says Allen, is equally possible through focusing on the power of positive thoughts. The inner thought is the seed which grows into the outer observable action and reaction.
If we want to change our world for the better, James Allen argues we first of all have to change our minds and we do this by focusing on our thought patterns.
A similar idea is central to Norman Vincent Peale's best seller "The Power of Positive Thinking" and found in many contemporary self-improvement regimes, for example, the practice of repeating affirmations.
"As a Man Thinketh" is a small, easily read book made freely available through Project Gutenberg. It has inspired millions of people all over the world, including myself, to re-examine their habitual self-talk and consider the effect it may be having on their lives.
