Goal setting and James Allen


James Allen wrote around twenty books, every one of his books that I have read I have always found to be excellent, with a profound understanding of the human condition and the effects of thoughts, actions and thinking on a person’s life.

He passed away around one hundred years ago, but his writings still live on. His most famous book was “As a man thinkieth”

“As a physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training,
so the man of weak thoughts can make them strong by exercising himself in right thinking”.
– James Allen

James Allen does not write about goal setting as such, instead he explains that we must take control of our minds and exercise them as you would any muscle. If we neglect our bodies them they will not serve us well, and the mind is the same. In both these examples they will produce results in our lives.

“Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become.
Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be. Your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil”.
– James Allen

James Allen fully understood the power of thought and using visualisation, he understood that our thoughts and visions will become our future.
