Quotes and Notes from Hugh’s book list:

Today’s notes are on “As a Man Thinketh”by James Allen

One of the three books Jim Rohn said everybody should have is, “As a Man Thinketh” along with “Think and Grow Rich” and the Bible. Each of these books is full of wisdom of the ages and is timeless.

This little book is a short read. Each time I re-read it, I see different things and the things I saw before mean something different. It’s work reviewing monthly.

Even though the book is short, it’s full of profound ideas. The quotes below are some of the passages I have marked.

Quotes:

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

Circumstances do not make the man, they reveal him.

Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound.

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

A man has to learn that he cannot command things, but that he can command himself; that he cannot coerce the wills of others, but that he can mold and master his own will: and things serve him who serves Truth; people seek guidance of him who is master of himself.

Circumstances do not make the man, they reveal him.

All that you accomplish or fail to accomplish with your life is the direct result of your thoughts.

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.

Self-control is strength. Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power.

The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to be harmoniously related to his inner state…Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.

As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.

Keep the momentum.
