Thoughts Are Things!

“Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance” Confucious

I have had a lifelong habit of studying everything I can find related to human achievement and potential, the near infinite potential of the mind, and countless success principles from every source imaginable. I benefit from the relevant and meaningful, while discarding what’s unproven, risky or rather crazy.

By not immediately ruling out what others often do, coupled with left-right brain education and experiencing completely different careers for example, one gains some unique perspective and knowledge.

Following are just a few sources I’ve synthesized knowledge from. However keep in mind, I haven’t accepted much of anything without it proving itself in some way, either directly to me, or in a fashion that can’t be disputed. In a number of the works, while I don’t agree with some specifics, I found enough useful content to make them beneficial.

While you may be familiar with some and want to investigate others, the good news is I’m doing most of the work for you by distilling some of the best ideas and combining with my own direct knowledge here. I have tried to break them into loose categories, however obviously there is some overlapping.

I’m a huge fan of audio learning, to make more productive use of drive time and task oriented work. I have benefited from many Nightingale Conant audio programs and I have included links to these beneficial programs as well as to Amazon for other titles. And no, you don’t pay more by using an affiliate link!

Largely just related to “Thought Science” we have:

Thinking BIG, The Keys to Personal Power & Maximum Performance (Brian Tracy)

The Strangest Secret ( Earl Nightingale)

The Secrets to Manifesting Your Destiny (Wayne Dyer, along with related works)

Think and Grow Rich (Napolean Hill)

The Magic of Believing (Claude Bristol)

As A Man Thinketh (James Allen)

Byways to Blessedness (James Allen)

Hidden Power, How to Unleash the Power of Your Subconscious Mind (James K Van Fleet)

Psycho Cybernetics (Dr Maxwell Maltz)

Mind is the Builder, Your Life is the Result (Edgar Cayce Philosophy, compiled by Dick Daily)

You Were Born Rich (Bob Proctor; This and the following title encompass much more than the financial areas)

The Science of Getting Rich (Wallace Wattles)

This was the original source for The Secret (Rhonda Byrne) which downplayed the “work required aspect” required for the law of attraction to function properly. It also substituted the word “Universe” for God as the provider of all abundance; Wattles’ work does a much better job in these two areas…

Just one of these works can drastically improve your life!
