As A Man Thinketh eBookAs A Man Thinketh is partly responsible for the creation of the entire personal development industry. Most contemporary PD authors and teachers credit this little book for providing foundation to their principles. It is a set of philosophical musings on the power of our thoughts. Earl Nightingale, widely regarded as the father of modern day personal development, in his best-selling recording, called the ideas in this book, "The Strangest Secret". The secret, he said, is "we become what we think about".

What others say about
As A Man Thinketh

"I have personally read As a Man Thinketh over 25 times. Timeless material." - Mark Victor Hansen, co-author, the Chicken Soup books

“I read As a Man Thinketh once a year for over 15 years when I was in my 20s and 30s.” -
Paul J. Meyer, recognized as one of the leading self-improvement authors of all time

“Some books are so good and meaningful that you read them again and again. Primarily because you know the substance and content is so important that you need to be reminded of what it has to say. As A Man Thinketh, by James Allen is just such a book.”  -
Book Review, Michigan Chronicle

"Beyond the New Testament, the Old Testament and other books documenting the beliefs of the greatest religions of the world, there is one little book that impacted my life dramatically during my formative teenage years. The book is As A Man Thinketh, the most widely written by James Allen, who might be likened to the Norman Vincent Peale or Earl Nightingale of the late 1800's." -
Denis Waitley, author of The Psychology of Winning, the best selling audio program in the world.

Dear Friend,

 I can still remember the excitement I felt as the words from “this little volume” worked deep into the fabric of my injured spirit.

Hello, I’m Vic Johnson and I appreciate you stopping by our site.

I know what it’s like to be searching.  I know what it’s like for “the bottom to fall out.”  Between 1994-1997 I experienced more “character building” days than any other time of my life.  Because my earlier success in life had been based on a foundation of misguided principles, I now faced severe personal challenges on several fronts of my life.  During that time I moved in and out of a deep depression.  While I never totally despaired, it was knocking at my door.  I now understood what the saint meant by the “dark night of the soul.”

Two books saved my life and both books came into my possession in an off-handed way.  At a garage sale my former wife purchased a copy of “Make Your Life Worthwhile”,  by the late Emmet Fox, because “it looked like a book you’d be interested in.”  Several years earlier I had purchased a big bundle of books at a discount book sale and buried in the bundle, to be fully discovered later, was James Allen’s “As A Man Thinketh.”

When I picked it off my bookshelf and began to read it, I couldn’t put it down.  I read it through in one sitting, which isn’t too hard to do. The first time through I highlighted the key thoughts.  On my second reading I began to underline additional passages that suddenly jumped off the page.  By the third reading it was a marked up mess, testifying to the tremendous distillation of wisdom that Allen leaves with us.  There is an oft-used expression “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”  There is no doubt I was ready, and there is no doubt that James Allen was to be my teacher.  I had a child-like feeling of discovery.  That feeling, a satisfaction, that comes with encountering something new and delicious. In short, “it clicked.” 

I now understood how I was going to change my destiny.  And, more importantly, I now knew and believed that I was in total control of that destiny.  I could sense power where I had felt weakness against the onrushing torrent of negative circumstances.

I have dramatically turned my life in an exciting direction.  I have enjoyed more success and happiness in the last few years than in my entire life combined.  All of the resources recommended on this site have been personally used by me and they are resources that have brought me to this point in my journey.

I hope As A Man Thinketh will have an impact on your life and I hope you’ll return often to our website.

I look forward to walking the path together.
