The Power of Directing Your Thoughts and Your Internal Movie

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen is a short and insightful oft-quoted book that highlights the idea that, we are forged—for better or for worse—by our thoughts and their quality. More than that, we have agency in the matter of our lives, and so that when quality thinking combines with diligent action, extraordinary happens.

And while it maybe true that there is so much out there, and so little over which we have control, our thoughts are our own. At the thought level, we have the power to exert influence, and it is at this level that we must begin to interface with the world, because our thoughts determine how the world as we come to see it, is framed.
