James Allen Quotes "All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts."

One of James Allen quotes reads:

"A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts."

So what are you thinking now?

Assess your thoughts and feelings, and listen to what your inner voice is telling you.

Go through each day knowing that you are what you think.

If you are to draw a summary of thoughts and feelings that you have right now, what picture will you see?

Will you like the result of your artwork?


Ideas, expectations, and assumption that make up our interior world shape our lives.

Our internal thoughts and feelings directly affect our behavior.

Your inner voice commands your external actions.

Notice how a simple statement can change the way you react to certain situations, especially challenges.

When you tell yourself “I’m not good enough for this,” you most probably wouldn’t be able to accomplish your goals.

At a job interview, potential employers would be able to sense your lack of confidence and uncertainty through your facial expressions and the words you use, which both spring from your thoughts and feelings.

On the other hand, when you begin your day with an “I can do it” mindset, you feel energized and confident to complete your tasks.

You find solutions to problems that others find too difficult.

Best of all, your positive energy becomes a source of hope, courage, or strength for the people around you.

I believe in having a purpose in life, without it, and many years I was just existing, you just flounder, going nowhere, existing.

What is the difference between a purpose and goal?

  • A purpose is a dream or goal that is never ending,It has no deadline, no beginning or end, it is a guiding principal.
  • Whereas a Goal has an end date, a deadline, of when you want to achieve your goal.

My purpose is to inspire, educate, and help as many people as I can to move forward.

My goal, I set along the way, say of when I want to finish something on my website, I put a date on it.


James Allen writes about in his book "As you think so Shall You succeed having a purpose in life, as without it you just drift aimlessly in life.

  • Allen says "This eBook (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much written upon subject of the "Power of Thought". It is suggestive rather that explanatory, its object being to stimulate you to the discovery and perception of the truth that "They themselves are makers of "themselves" by virtue of the thoughts, which they choose and encourage, that mind is the master- weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the inner garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now in enlightenment and happiness."
  • Your mind may be likened to a garden it can either be cultivated or allowed to run wild, just as a gardener cultivates his garden keeping it free from weeds and growing the flowers and fruits which is required so may you tend the garden of your mind weeding out all the wrong, useless, and impure thoughts, and cultivation toward useful and pure thoughts. By doing this you will soon discover you are the master garden of your soul, the director of your life.
  • Allen talks about having a purpose in life as without it you just drift aimlessly in life. How achievement is a direct result of our thoughts.

Allen goes into more detail on all of these subjects in length in his eBook.

James Allen Quotes

A man's mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth.

If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.

James Allen

Cherish your visions.
Cherish your ideals.
Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts.
For out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment, of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

James Allen

Self-control is strength.
Right thought is mastery.
Calmness is power.

James Allen Quotes

The outer conditions of a person's life will always be found to be harmoniously related to his inner state...Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.

James Allen

As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.

James Allen

A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.

James Allen

A person is limited only by the thoughts that he chooses.

James Allen

A man only begins to be a man when he ceases to whine and revile, and commences to search for the hidden justice which regulates his life.

And he adapts his mind to that regulating factor, he ceases to accuse others as the cause of his condition, and builds himself up in strong and noble thoughts; ceases to kick against circumstances, but begins to use them as aids to his more rapid progress, and as a means of the hidden powers and possibilities within himself.

James Allen

A strong man cannot help a weaker unless the weaker is willing to be helped, and even then the weak man must become strong of himself; he must, by his own efforts, develop the strength which he admires in another.
None but himself can alter his condition.

James Allen Quotes

James Allen Quotes

He who would accomplish little need sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much. He who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.

James Allen

Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results … We understand this law in the natural world, and work with it; but few understand it in the mental and moral world—although its operation there is just as simple and undeviating—and they, therefore, do not cooperate with it.

James Allen

The dreamers are the saviors of the world.

As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers.

James Allen Quotes

A noble and God-like character is not a thing of favor or chance, but is the natural result of continued effort in right thinking, the effect of long-cherished association with God-like thoughts.

James Allen

 

Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves.

James Allen

To Desire is to Obtain to Aspire is to Achieve

James Allen Quotes

A man becomes calm in the measure that he understands himself as a thought-evolved being.

For such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought, and as he develops a right understanding, and sees ever more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect, he ceases to fuss, fume, worry, and grieve.

He remains poised, steadfast, serene.

James Allen

Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.

It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control.

Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.

James Allen

James Allen Quotes

There can be no progress nor achievement without sacrifice, and a man's worldly success will be by the measure that he sacrifices his confused animal thoughts, and fixes his mind on the development of his plans, and the strengthening of his resolution and self-reliance.

James Allen Quotes

All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts.

James Allen

Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.

James Allen

The body is the servant of the mind. It obeys the operations of the mind, whether they be deliberately chosen or automatically expressed.

James Allen

They who have no central purpose in their life fall an easy prey to petty worries, fears, troubles, and self-pitying, all of which are indications of weakness, which lead, just as surely as deliberately planned sins (though by a different route), to failure, unhappiness, and loss, for weakness cannot persist in a power evolving universe.

James Allen

Suffering is always the effect of wrong thought in some direction.

It is an indication that the individual is out of harmony with himself, with the Law of his being.

James Allen Quotes

The circumstances which a man encounters with suffering are the result of his own mental in harmony.

James Allen

Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage, these are the makers of the after-world, the architects of heaven.

The world is beautiful because they have lived; without them, laboring humanity would perish.

James Allen

James Allen Quotes

Act is the blossom of thought; and joy and suffering are its fruits; thus does a man garner in the sweet and biter fruitage of his own husbandry

James Allen

Not what he wishes and prays for does a man get, but what he justly earns. His wishes and prayers are only gratified and answered when they harmonize with his thoughts and actions.

James Allen

Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results.

James Allen Quotes

Let a man radically alter his thoughts, and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life.

James Allen

Calmness  of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.

It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control.

Self-control is strength; Right Thought is mastery; Calmness is power. Say unto your heart, "Peace, be still!

James Allen

As the reaper of his own harvest, man learns both of suffering and bliss

James Allen

Man is made or unmade by himself; in the armoury of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself;

James Allen Quotes

James Allen Quotes

Man is buffeted by circumstances so long as he believes himself to be the creature of outside conditions, but when he realizes that he is a creative power, and that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being out of which circumstances grow, he then becomes the rightful master of himself.

James Allen

Doubt and fear are the great enemies of knowledge, and he who encourages them, who does not slay them, thwarts himself at every step.

James Allen

He who has conquered weakness, and has put away all selfish thoughts, belongs neither to oppressor nor oppressed. He is free.

James Allen

He that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened;

James Allen

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful.

James Allen

He who cherishes a beautiful vision, a lofty ideal in his heart, will one day realize it.

Columbus cherished a vision of another world, and he discovered it;

Copernicus fostered the vision of a multiplicity of worlds and a wider universe, and he revealed it;

Buddha beheld the vision of a spiritual world of stainless
beauty and perfect peace, and he entered into it.

James Allen Quotes

Thought is the fount of action, life, and manifestation; make the fountain pure, and all will be pure.

James Allen Quotes

The outer world of circumstance shapes itself to the inner world of thought,

James Allen

As a man thinketh in his heart so is he,

James Allen

As a progressive and evolving being, man is where he is that he may learn that he may grow; and as he learns the spiritual lesson which any circumstance contains for him, it passes away and gives place to other circumstances.

James Allen

Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit.

James Allen

Just as a gardener cultivates his plot, keeping it free from weeds, and growing the flowers and fruits which he requires, so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out all the wrong, useless, and impure thoughts, and cultivating toward perfection the flowers and fruits of right, useful, and pure thoughts.

By pursuing this process, a man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.

James Allen Quotes

Blessedness, not material possessions, is the measure of right thought; wretchedness, not lack of material possessions, is the measure of wrong thought.

James Allen

James Allen Quotes

The universe does not favour the greedy, the dishonest, the vicious, although on the mere surface it may sometimes appear to do so; it helps the honest, the magnanimous, the virtuous.

James Allen

Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes, And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills, Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills:— He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass: Environment is but his looking-glass.

James Allen

Doubt and fear are the great enemies of knowledge, and he who encourages them, who does not slay them, thwarts himself at every step. He who has conquered doubt

James Allen Quotes

A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out to accomplish it.

He should make this purpose the centralizing point of his thoughts.

It may take the form of a spiritual ideal, or it may be a worldly object, according to his nature at the time being; but whichever it is, he should steadily focus his thought-forces upon the object, which he has set before him.

He should make this purpose his supreme duty, and should devote himself to its attainment, not allowing his thoughts to wander away into ephemeral fancies, longings, and imaginings.

This is the royal road to self-control and true concentration of thought.

Even if he fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must until weakness is overcome), the strength of character gained will be the measure of his true success, and this will form a new starting-point for future power and triumph.

James Allen

Out of a clean heart comes a clean life and a clean body.

Out of a defiled mind proceeds a defiled life and a corrupt body.

Thought is the fount of action, life, and manifestation; make the fountain pure, and all will be pure.

James Allen

Achievement of any kind is the crown of effort, the diadem of thought. By the aid of self-control, resolution, purity, righteousness, and well-directed thought a man ascends. By the aid of animality, indolence, impurity, corruption, and confusion of thought a man descends.

James Allen

Of all the beautiful truths pertaining to the soul which have been restored and brought to light in this age, none is more gladdening or fruitful of divine promise and confidence than this—that man is the master of thought, the moulder of character, and the maker and shaper of condition, environment, and destiny.

James Allen

James Allen Quotes

The outer world of circumstance shapes itself to the inner world of thought, and both pleasant and unpleasant external conditions are factors, which make for the ultimate good of the individual. As the reaper of his own harvest, man learns both by suffering and bliss.

James Allen

A man only begins to be a man when he ceases to whine and revile, and commences to search for the hidden justice which regulates his life.

James Allen Quotes

Circumstance does not make the man; it reveals him to himself No such conditions can exist as descending into vice and its attendant sufferings apart from vicious inclinations, or ascending into virtue and its pure happiness without the continued cultivation of virtuous aspirations; and man, therefore, as the lord and master of thought, is the maker of himself the shaper and author of environment.
