The title is influenced by a verse in the Bible from the Book of Proverbs, chapter 23, verse 7: "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The full passage, taken from the King James Version, is as follows: Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words. While the passage suggests that one should consider the true motivations of a person who is being uncharacteristically generous before accepting his generosity, the title and content of Allen's work refer to the reader himself. This book, written in terms of the responsibility assumption, opens with the statement: 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.

Mit seinem Buch Wie wir denken, so leben wir" ( As A Man Thinketh") liefert James Allen nichts Geringeres als einen Schlussel zu einem selbstbestimmten Leben. Er macht kein Geheimnis daraus, dass er diesen Schlussel nicht erfunden" hat. Vielmehr hat er ihn wiederentdeckt: in alten Schriften wie der Bibel und dem Dhammapada (einer Anthologie von Ausspruchen des historischen Buddha), in traditionellen westlichen und ostlichen Philosophien und Denkweisen. Was er schliesslich zu Papier brachte, beruhte auf den Erkenntnissen, die er aus diesen Lehren gezogen hatte, und vor allem auf seinen personlichen Erfahrungen. Denn James Allen war alles andere als ein Theoretiker. Er hat sich kurz gefasst, und das ist ein Vorteil, denn ein Buch wie dieses liest man nicht einmal, sondern wieder und wieder, bis das vermittelte Wissen sich dem Unbewussten eingepragt hat und zur verlasslichen Grundlage des eigenen Denkens und Handelns geworden ist. Das ist wichtig, denn erst dann kann es seine Wirkung entfalten und zu nachhaltigen Veranderungen fuhren. As A Man Thinketh" war James Allens drittes Buch und sein erfolgreichstes. Es hat den Autor beruhmt gemacht, wenn auch erst nach dessen Ableben, als sich das Buch im Lauf der Jahre nicht nur in England sondern rund um den ganzen Globus verbreitete. Wenn ein Buch uber hundert Jahre nach seiner Erstveroffentlichung im Jahr 1902 noch immer millionenfach gekauft und gelesen wird, kommt das sicher nicht von ungefahr, sondern ist ein deutlicher Hinweis darauf, dass es Substanz hat und zeitloses Wissen vermittelt. Vielleicht wird das Buch deshalb heute noch gelesen, weil der Autor sein Wissen darin kurz und bundig vermittelt, ohne darauf zu schielen, dass ein dickeres Buch mehr Geld einbringen wurde. Deshalb braucht er das, was er zu sagen hat, nicht kunstlich aufzuplustern. Vielleicht liegt der lang anhaltende Erfolg aber auch daran, dass James Allen einer der ersten Autoren war, der die Macht der Gedanken als Buchthema entdeckt h

Man is always the master, even in his weaker and most abandoned state; but in his weakness and degradation he is the foolish master who misgoverns his "household." When he begins to reflect upon his condition, and to search diligently for the Law upon which his being is established, he then becomes the wise master, directing his energies with intelligence, and fashioning his thoughts to fruitful issues. Such is the conscious master, and man can only thus become by discovering within himself the laws of thought; which discovery is totally a matter of application, self analysis, and experience.
