The title is influenced by a verse in the Bible from the Book of Proverbs, chapter 23, verse 7: "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." The full passage, taken from the King James Version, is as follows: Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words. While the passage suggests that one should consider the true motivations of a person who is being uncharacteristically generous before accepting his generosity, the title and content of Allen's work refer to the reader himself. This book, written in terms of the responsibility assumption, opens with the statement: Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes, And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills, Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills: —He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass: Environment is but his looking-glass.

« THIS little volume (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much-written-upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that—"They themselves are makers of themselves." by virtue of the thoughts, which they choose and encourage; that mind is the master-weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness. » J. Allen

As a Man Thinketh is a literary essay of James Allen, published in 1902. The title is influenced by a verse in the Bible from the Book of Proverbs chapter 23 verse 7, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The full passage, taken from the King James Version, is as follows: "Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words." The passage seems to suggest that one should consider the true motivations of a person who is being uncharacteristically generous before accepting his generosity - while in the title and content of James Allen's work the passage is in a different context; In the Bible the passage is referring to another person, and in James Allen's work the passage is adopted to primarily refer to the reader himself. This version of the classic book includes a biography about the life and times of James Allen.

Mit seinem Buch "Wie wir denken, so leben wir" (As A Man Thinketh) liefert James Allen nichts Geringeres als einen Schlüssel zu einem selbstbestimmten Leben. Er macht kein Geheimnis daraus, dass er diesen Schlüssel nicht "erfunden" hat. Vielmehr hat er ihn wiederentdeckt: in alten Schriften wie der Bibel und dem Dhammapada (einer Anthologie von Aussprüchen des historischen Buddha), in traditionellen westlichen und östlichen Philosophien und Denkweisen. Was er schließlich zu Papier brachte, beruhte auf den Erkenntnissen, die er aus diesen Lehren gezogen hatte, und vor allem auf seinen persönlichen Erfahrungen. Denn James Allen war alles andere als ein Theoretiker. Er hat sich kurz gefasst, und das ist ein Vorteil, denn ein Buch wie dieses liest man nicht einmal, sondern wieder und wieder, bis das vermittelte Wissen sich dem Unbewussten eingeprägt hat und zur verlässlichen Grundlage des eigenen Denkens und Handelns geworden ist. Das ist wichtig, denn erst dann kann es seine Wirkung entfalten und zu nachhaltigen Veränderungen führen. "As A Man Thinketh" war James Allens drittes Buch und sein erfolgreichstes. Es hat den Autor berühmt gemacht, wenn auch erst nach dessen Ableben, als sich das Buch im Lauf der Jahre nicht nur in England sondern rund um den Globus verbreitete. Wenn ein Buch über hundert Jahre nach seiner Erstveröffentlichung im Jahr 1902 noch immer millionenfach gekauft und gelesen wird, kommt das sicher nicht von ungefähr, sondern ist ein deutlicher Hinweis darauf, dass es Substanz hat und zeitloses Wissen vermittelt. Vielleicht wird das Buch deshalb heute noch gelesen, weil der Autor sein Wissen darin kurz und bündig vermittelt, ohne darauf zu schielen, dass ein dickeres Buch mehr Geld einbringen würde. Deshalb braucht er das, was er zu sagen hat, nicht künstlich aufzuplustern. Vielleicht liegt der lang anhaltende Erfolg aber auch daran, dass James Allen einer der ersten Autoren war, der die Macht der Gedanken als Buchthema entdeckt hatte. Man spürt, dass er selbst glaubt, was er verkündet. Das verleiht dem Buch Authentizität. Vielleicht stößt sein Buch aber auch schlicht und einfach deshalb über so lange Zeit auf Interesse, weil der Autor sich das so ausgemalt hat. Wenn Ihnen dies völlig unplausibel erscheint, liegt das womöglich daran, dass Sie es noch nicht gelesen haben. Nach der Lektüre sehen Sie die Idee wahrscheinlich mit anderen Augen.

The aphorism, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," not only embraces the whole of a man's being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.

Wollen Sie im Leben vorankommen? Wollen Sie auf der Karriereleiter empor klettern? Das Geheimnis dafür liegt laut Networking-Guru Keith Ferrazzi darin, sich mit anderen Menschen zusammenzutun. Ferrazzi erkannte schon früh, dass sich sehr erfolgreiche Menschen von der breiten Masse in puncto Networking in einem Punkt unterscheiden: Sie nutzen die Macht von "Vitamin B" so, dass jeder dabei gewinnt. In "Geh nie alleine essen!" zeigt Ferrazzi die Schritte, die er benutzt, um mit den Tausenden von Menschen in seinem Adressbuch in Kontakt zu bleiben. Es sind Kollegen, Freunde und Partner - Menschen, denen er geholfen hat und Menschen, die ihm geholfen haben. Ferrazzis Art des Networkings basiert auf Großzügigkeit - er hilft seinen Freunden, miteinander in Kontakt zu kommen. Er unterscheidet stark zwischen dem echten Aufbau von Beziehungen und dem hektischen Visitenkartentausch, den viele heute als Networking bezeichnen. Schließlich destilliert er sein System in anwendbare und erprobte Prinzipien.

Widely considered the greatest self-help book of all-time, As a Man Thinketh reveals how our thoughts determine our character, circumstances, health, appearance, and achievements. The choice is ours: either master our thoughts to create the life we want, or remain mired in frustration and failure. While James Allen's writing was exceptionally clear for its time, As a Man Thinketh -- like any 100-year-old book -- uses archaic language that can be difficult to grasp. This 21st Century Edition rephrases Allen's ideas in contemporary English, making his wisdom available to today's readers.
