Do your thoughts really matter? Do the words you say in your mind make any difference at all in what you experience in your life? The answer is an unequivocal Yes The timeless classic As A Man Thinketh has been rewritten to help the average person understand its lessons. For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. Psalms 23:7 As A Man Thinketh was first published in 1903. James Allen described this work as an essay about the power of thought, and particularly with the use and application of thought to happy and beautiful issues. James Allen] tried to make the book simple, so that all can easily grasp and follow its teaching, and put into practice the methods which it advises. It shows how, in his own thought-world, each man holds the key to every condition, good or bad, that enters into his life, and transform his circumstances. Jane Allen felt the early 1900's language made the timeless concepts difficult to understand, and put them into language that can be easily understood int he 21st century.
