“As a Man Thinketh”

This tiny booklet, “As a Man Thinketh,” (free to read online in various formats from various sites) is more than 100 years old. But I’d never heard of it until a nice guy, A.G., pointed me toward it. There are also print versions, including one transcribed especially for women, which A.G. was kind enough to send me.

It’s not very big on how-to. But there’s much food for thought there for anybody who wants to change his — or her! — life, starting from the mind outward. (And doesn’t every author dream of having works in print for more than a century!)

    Welcome back, Claire! I’ll certainly have a look at that book!

    Somebody said that “A man is about as happy as he makes up his mind to be…” and I’ve certainly found that to be true.

    Our thoughts and actions create our reality.

    Good to have you back Claire.
    I agree with ML. When it comes right down to it if in your mind your happy and free then you are. No one can take that from you.

    Always nice to hear your thoughts, Claire. šŸ™‚ This format is especially cool, because it’s like getting to bump into you for a minute at the grocery store. The cyber grocery store, I guess.

    Thanks for the welcomes and the good cheer. Yeah, George, it is a tad like meeting at the cyber grocery store. But less fattening. And everybody has a little more chance to think out what they’re going to say. šŸ˜‰

    I’m surprised at the number of comments already. I’ve never dealt with a comments section before. The occasional spammer aside (and I’ve already had two!), I like it.
