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 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.

"As a Man Thinketh" is a literary essay by James Allen, published in 1903. It was described by Allen as "... dealing with the power of thought, and particularly with the use and application of thought to happy and beautiful issues. Allen has 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 that, by working patiently and intelligently upon his thoughts, he may remake his life, and transform his circumstances. It was also described by Allen as "A book that will help you to help yourself", "A pocket companion for thoughtful people", and "A book on the power and right application of thought.

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.

James Allen’s revolutionary book on the power of thought, combined with the bonus book Mastery of Destiny Originally published in 1903, James Allen’s As A Man Thinketh reveals the fundamental truth of human nature: “A man is literally what he thinks.” Allen’s deceptively simple principle has changed the lives of millions of readers, making As A Man Thinketh a classic bestseller for decades. Allen explains that our character, identity, ability, and success are all determined by the thoughts in our minds. Instead of finding ourselves victims of the world, there exists within each of us the ability to shape and define our own destinies. Finances, health, social status, and success are all external manifestations of the thoughts that populate our minds. Allen offers his readers an opportunity to seize control of their minds and in doing so create the lives they’ve always imagined. This new edition combines As A Man Thinketh with another of Allen’s companion works, Mastery of Destiny. In Mastery of Destiny Allen shows that the natural progression of human evolution is away from the evil that results from ignorance and towards ultimate good. Combined in one volume, these two books offer a revolutionary outlook of empowerment.
