Summary

In this program Denis Waitley narrates James Allen's famous book, first published in 1903. It is one of the most widely studied self-help books of all time and has had a major impact on generations, thanks to its simple message: "You are what you think".

Denis Waitley, among other well-known authors and speakers, credits this one little book, given to him at age 13, as a life-changing inspiration that led him toward a career in planting the seeds of greatness in others. In the words of Allen himself, "Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Dreams are the seedlings of realities."

A recognized pioneer in the personal-development movement, Denis Waitley is one of the most respected and listened-to voices on high-performance achievement and is the author of 18 nonfiction books. His audio album, The Psychology of Winning, is the all-time best-selling program on self-mastery. As a Man Thinketh, in audio format, is a must-listen-to program for those who believe in the law of attraction; its object is to stimulate men and women's discovery and perception of the truth that they are the makers of themselves.

What you will learn:

  • Individuals do not attract what they want but what they are
  • A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts
  • The soul attracts that which it secretly harbors, that which it loves, and also that which it fears
  • Men are anxious to improve their circumstances but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound
  • Every action and feeling is preceded by a thought
  • Right thinking begins with the words we say to ourselves

Short Sharp & Sweet

Opening was a little long, like tv credits but content was eye opening and will probably take a few listens before it sinks.

Is all about mindset

What you think about is very paramount to who you are, what we feed into our minds is what will determine our thoughts so we have to feed the brain in positive thoughts and we will do positive actions. Anything we think in our minds we can conceive

Classic Reading

This is a short reminder on thoughtful behaviour, excellent advice and as true today as it was when first published. there are newer spiritual leaders around but this remains a classic.

You Are What You Think!!!

Truly Inspirational. Although not long in content. The words are powerful and profound. It also states there are no quick fixes to anything. It is repeated positive reinforcement of thoughts and actions we take (along with sacrifice) that gains us the results we wish. 5 stars!!!

Great book. Authoritative&Convincing performance.

Too many audio books are read by 'have a go heroes' who don't sound convinced or passionate about the content. This performance was the complete opposite. It was an authoritative and convincing performance by a reader clearly invested in the book's message. His cadence was just right and his timing perfect. I felt like I was listening to the original author, and that allowed me to take in more of the content. As a man thinketh....indeed!

A must!

Everyone should read or listen to this.

It is even more important in the age of trash-tastic social medial and television.

What a great book! This is my second time through!

Remember when this was written

Be mindful when you buy this book this is a modern reading of an ancient book and that the language is beautiful but not modern.

Awesome. Period.

It literally doesn't matter how long ago this book was written. It applies to anyone living in any time period. I literally feel wiser after having listened to this book. Let your thoughts be the seeds of greatness.
