As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Inspirational Book To Transform Your Life - Change your thoughts, change your life

“Of all the beautiful truths pertaining to the soul that have been restored and brought to light in this age, none is more gladdening or fruitful of divine promise and confidence than this—that you are the master of your thought, the molder of your character, and the maker and shaper of your condition, environment and destiny.”

“Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results … We  understand this law in the natural world, and work with it; but few understand it in the mental and moral world—although its operation there is just as simple and undeviating— and they, therefore, do not cooperate with it.”

“Law, not confusion, is the dominating principle in the universe; justice, not injustice, is the soul and substance of life; and righteousness, not corruption, is the molding and moving force in the spiritual government of the world. This being so, we have to but right ourselves to find that the universe is right.”

We are the sum of our thoughts
We attract not only what we love, but also what we fear. Those thoughts that receive our attention, good or bad, go into the unconscious to become the fuel for later events in the real world.
“A person is what he thinks about all day long.” -  Emerson

Our circumstances are us
Circumstances do not make a person, they reveal him. we have no one else to blame for our present condition except ourselves.

Change your world by changing your mind
Most of us are anxious to improve our circumstances, but are unwilling to improve ourselves—and we therefore remain bound. Prosperity and happiness cannot happen when the old self is still stuck in its old ways.

Tranquillity = success
The best path to success is calmness of mind. People who are calm, relaxed, and purposeful appear as if that is their natural state, but nearly always it is the fruit of self-control.

In a nutshell
We don't attract what we want, but what we are. Only by changing your thoughts will you change your life.
