As A Man Thinketh Book Summary

I read the As A Man Thinketh Book back in 2018 and back then I didn’t understand what James Allen was trying to say but hey, in 2018 I was only 19 years old, so you can understand my thought process.

Again back in 2021, I pick up the book and started reading, after that I realized what James Allen was trying to say and that’s what I’m about to share with you here.

  • You can change your thoughts if you really want to change?
  • Whether you think positive or negative, your mind will create something
  • Life can be hard but you have to understand the situation and take the action accordingly.
  • Your body is just a house and your mind is the owner of that house, so try to be that owner and don’t be trapped in a rental house.
  • Thoughts can either make you young or old.
  • Whatever you think today will be your reality in the future.
  • Questions are a key part of humans, so don’t forget to questions.
  • Try not to repeat the same mistake again and again even if you make the same mistake again then ask yourself, what did I do wrong and where can I improve?

Lesson 1: Thoughts can either make you young or old

Have you ever heard about stress, anxiety, and overthinking, yes these things can make you look old from the outside and from the inside too and this is where you have to find then solution for whatever problem you have in your life.

Every problem has a solution, you just need the courage to go outside and find that solution by yourself or ask for help.

Have you ever wondered, why sometimes a 50-year-old man or woman looks like 20 years old and 20-year-old looks like 50 years old?

And I think you already know the answer but you don’t want to do anything about it.

Here James Allen has said, starts with the thought process, try to understand it, and found the solution for it, if you really want to change yourself, if you have enough courage then you can become the person you want to be.

Lesson 2: Whatever you think today will be your reality in the future

What if I say every day that I don’t like to read books, I don’t like to do exercise, I don’t like to eat healthily, I don’t like myself?

In the end, your mind will make that happen, you won’t see the process but your mind will start the processor in the background, and in the end, you will get what you are asking for. So start to understand your mind because your mind has unlimited power, you just have to ask for it…

In the same way, if you say, I will read books every day, I will exercise every day because I love my body, I love my life, and I’m healthy. This way, your mind will act on it, the way you ask for it.

This is what James Allen has said, try to understand the mind and your thoughts, if you understand currently then you can do everything and anything.

Lesson 3: Questions are a key part of humans, so don’t forget to questions

What if I say, don’t ask any questions, at the same time, you will become an animal because if you don’t ask the right question then there is no huge difference between an animal and a human. Questing is what makes us human, so don’t forget to ask questions because this is the way, we progress.

Elon Musk has recently said that The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy book has made a huge impact on his life, The book taught him, to ask the right questions, it’s easy to answer the question but sometimes it’s very hard to ask the right question at right time.

Let’s take another example,

So you want to earn money from the internet, the first question that will come to your mind is, how can I earn money online but you can also ask, ‘which are the best ways to earn money online, how much money I can make, how much time it will take to earn money online, do I need to earn from the internet’

You can also ask, does god exists?

In short, don’t ever forget to question and find the answer to the question you have.
