What is right thinking?

The most inspirational self help book of all time?

In 2003, a number of leading self-help authors were asked to list the works that were, to them, most inspirational. The book mentioned most often was James Allen’s As a Man Thinketh. Written in 1902, this timeless classic explores the idea that our thoughts create our circumstances, our character and our life.

The opening paragraph says –

“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.”


If you are interested in personal development this information is probably nothing new, however, with all the distractions and troubles in the world, it is easy to forget how important it is that we choose the right thoughts. Our happiness, health, wealth and spiritual growth depend on it.

“Man is made or unmade by himself; in the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace.”


Are you thinking thoughts that help or hinder you?



If you are not living the life you desire then you need to first change yourself…

“Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.”


…and you change yourself by changing your thoughts:

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


By thinking pure, positive thoughts we can improve our happiness and our health. We can also improve our prosperity and success as our right thoughts bring about the right actions. They help us to attract into life that which we are becoming.


How do we change our thoughts?

“Right thinking begins with the words we say to ourselves.”


So we’ve taken some of the wisest quotes from As a Man Thinketh and turned them into 50 powerful affirmations:


Use these powerful words to change your thinking …and your life. You’ll feel stronger, wiser, happier, more confident and purposeful …and they’re also designed to help you grow spiritually and to help protect you spiritually…
