Motivational Book – As A Man Thinketh by James Allen
Motivational books are usually about taking immediate action. By contrast, this 1902 classic by James Allen is a bit more, well…, thoughtful. It explains how your thoughts mold your personality, and how that personality drives you to take action and determines the type of action you’ll take.
Best quote: “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.”
