As A Man Thinketh

Written in the late 1800's, as A Man Thinketh is partly responsible for the creation of the entire personal development industry.  Most contemporary Personal Developement authors and teachers credit this little book for providing foundation to their principles.  It is a set of philosophical musings on the power of our thoughts. Earl Nightingale, widely regarded as the father of modern day personal development, in his best-selling recording, called the ideas in this book, "The Strangest Secret".  The secret, he said, is "we become what we think about".

"All that we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts."

"As a Man Thinketh" is a classic in the truest sense: few books have been so widely read, have stood the test of time so well, have had such an impact on generations of readers, and have carried such a simple, profound message: You are what you think.

Og Mandino counted "As a Man Thinketh" among the top ten success books of all time--read it today and put its wisdom to work for you!           PDF Format 158kb

A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior, Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus’s insights and advice—on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others—have made the Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. 

The Roman emperor and second-century Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius discusses life, morality, duty, and community. Originally entitled "To Himself", the work did not surface until the fourth century, shows a spirit attuned to both the particulars of human destiny and the vast patterns which underlie it.               PDF Format  272kb

The Analysis of Mind

One of Russell's most important and interesting books which reconciles the materialistic tendency of psychology with the anti-materialistic tendency of physics.

All of his ideas are clearly stated and made more apparent with the use of simple illustrations. He covers all aspects of what we presently call our mind and allows us to judge for ourselves the relative importance of each aspect. While this work is older than 80 years, I find it quite amazing that the physiological evidence to his interpretations of the mind is only now becoming apparent

The work has been given in the form of lectures both in London and Peking, and one lecture, that on Desire, has been published in the Athenaeum.

Russell was awarded the Order of Merit in 1949 and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950. PDF Format 550kb

Within You is The Power

It was around the early 1920's that Henry Thomas Hamblin began to write. Within You is The Power was one of his first books ever written, and it went on to sell over 200,000 copies.

"The enlightened message of this book moves forward in time with grace and ease, and serves to help bring the inner power of mind and spirit onto harmony with Universal Law.", explains Donald G. Carty. " More than ever before we need to be inspired and energized by the Power lying hidden in each of us, so that we may rise from the ashes of our dead hopes to build anew our life in greater beauty and in more harmony."

Donald Gordon Carty received a copy of this book some twenty years ago, and has edited and added content in such a way as to keep the "energy" true to Hamblins' original. Mr. Carty has authored hundreds of articles and two books, on personal development and personal transformation and credits this book as being a pivotal influence in his quest for personal fulfillment.
