Get Your Free E-Book "As A Man Thinketh"
This little classic gem “As A Man Thinketh” by James Allen is one of my all time favorite personal development books and literally a blueprint on living. It serves as a course of action for approaching life in a meaningful manner while capturing the pure essence of the human mind and unlimited potential each of us has if we simply will change the way we think.
Everyone should read this wonderful philosophy book many times throughout their life because it takes more than one reading to fully understand the powerful insights given in taking responsibility for your thoughts, actions and circumstance. I first read this book when I was 16 years old for personal growth and it quickly became my guide for shaping my thought processes and creating self awareness throughout my entire life. I have given it as a gift to clients, friends and acquaintances and continue to use all of the principles in my coaching practice for well over 20 years. There is so much life-improving wisdom, advice, and guidance packed inside this motivational book that you will still learn something new every time you read it.
They say what's old becomes new again. Many people consider James Allen as the founder of the personal development industry and current motivational speakers, success coaches and authors credit this book for providing the foundation to their teachings. Allen understood over a century ago what everyone is now calling "The Law of Attraction” and set the stage for the book, “The Secret” to be written. We are what we think...and you always have the choice to determine what that is!
The Wheel of Life
The Wheel of Life is a great tool to help you improve your life balance. It helps you quickly and graphically identify the areas you need to devote more energy to, and helps you understand where you might want to cut back. It is used in preparation for coaching sessions and setting short and long term goals. The challenge now is to transform this knowledge and desire for a more balanced life into a positive program of action!
Start by giving yourself a score of 1 to 10 depending on how satisfied you currently are in relation to each area on the wheel. 1 is pretty much as unhappy as you can be whereas 10 is the perfect score. As you score each area it is vital to be honest so that you can identify the areas for change and set goals to improve the key areas of your life. When you have scored all areas, join together all the points on each section to create a wheel. This will show you how balanced overall your life is and the areas you really need to focus on to set goals for improvement. After you have completed the wheel put a date on it and then review it every 3 months. Hopefully you will have gained self awareness, created healthy habits and made significant improvements in your key areas throughout time. You may then find that another area now requires your focus instead.
The Wheel is meant to change as your life improves and is a very simple yet powerful tool to help you identify the areas of your life that you have neglected and need to prioritize more in future.
