``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 - --from The Author, James Allen

It does however illustrate quite well the though patterns of the champions of our world and lay clear instructions for success in life. Quite simply you are what you think. It's not a book on getting rich or making friends or being happy. It's a book that reminds you of the basic principals of thought and how your thoughts effect every aspect of life. A short little reminder that your mind is your greatest asset or your biggest liability.
It just feels like every paragraph is pure gold honestly, sometimes it took me 20 minutes to make it through one page because of the realizations that I was having, and I needed to take time to scribble my notes into the margins. There is nothing in this book that doesn't absolutely need to be there, so you can be sure that it is worth your time and you won't be reading any filler material whatsoever. This will change your perspective on life, and if you actually do the things that are here, you change yourself. I honestly saw a change in how happy I was by doing the things that James Allen said. This is basically scripture to me now.
The only complaint that I have isn't about the book, it's more about me, because I wish that I was better at doing the things outlined in this book because I know that it would help me out a ton. So that is the next goal, make sure that I am doing the things here.
There’s a reason why some of the greatest thinkers and successful people today laud this book and recommend it freely. Every other sentence is a food for thought.
They are simple concepts although, borrowing from the language of the time, a little bit hard to understand sometimes. Not as bad as Shakespearean English but sometimes I feel it’s halfway there 🙈
They are also not new concepts but perhaps sometimes we just need a reminder of things we should already know. I won’t call them common sense because honestly, I don’t believe there’s such a thing as common sense. What’s common to one may not be common to others. Especially coming from different backgrounds and cultures. But I digress...
This book, for me, was a reminder. A reminder of basic human behaviour and conduct and thoughts. It reminds us that wholesomeness does not equal wealth. So often we get upset and rant about “I’m a good person, why am I not successful or rich or famous or...”.
For some reason we equate being nice/kind/loving/religious/pious/filial with deserving of success or riches or fame. News flash, they’re completely different things!
Anyways, short read, but expect to spend more than you would estimate on reading and understanding and internalising the words. I know I did 😁
