Overview

A Good Book on Prosperity

James Allen, one of the most popular writers at the turn of the 20th century in the field of success and spirituality, asks, What makes for prosperity?

In this work, first published in 1911, he explains his belief that "prosperity rests upon a moral foundation," one grounded by the pillars of:

Energy

Economy

Integrity

System

Sympathy

Sincerity

Impartiality

and Self-Reliance.

One reader said this about the book,

"I marked this book up a lot and liked it even better than As a Man Thinketh. It was much longer, had a lot more volume to it (in terms of thoroughness or completeness, IMO) and really set the mark high for achieving Allen's definition of "prosperity". As I gradually proceeded with each chapter, I found myself in agreement with nearly all the recommendations (and consequences) of the pillars and their moral composition."

James Allen has poured out a tremendous wealth of spiritual knowledge in this book. The book gives you effective strategies that will change the way of thinking to allow abundance to come into your life. In order to gain prosperity there are laws that need to be studied and applied, and the 8 pillars of prosperity is the answer.

James Allen gives you this in the Preface:

"The moral virtues or the eight pillars are the foundation and support of prosperity as they are the soul of greatness. They endure for ever, and all the works of man which endure are built upon them. Without them there is neither strength, stability, nor substantial reality, but only ephemeral dreams. To find moral principles is to have found prosperity, greatness, truth, and is therefore to be strong, valiant, joyful and free."

Some Wise Nuggets From the Book

1. Resourcefulness is the outcome of efficiency. It is an important element in prosperity, for the resourceful man is never confounded. He may have many falls, but he will always be equal to the occasion, and will be on his feet again immediately. Resourcefulness has its fundamental cause in the conservation of energy. It is energy transmuted.

2. A man of profound sincerity is a great moral force, and there is no force - not even the highest intellectual force - that can compare with it. Men are powerful in influence according to the soundness and perfection of their sincerity.

3. The four great elements of impartiality are
Justice

Patience

Calmness

Wisdom

Justice is the giving and receiving of equal values. What is called "striking a hard bargain" is a kind of theft. It means that the purchaser gives value for only a portion of his purchase, the remainder being appropriated as clear gain. The seller also encourages it by closing the bargain.

Meet the Author

James Allen (28 November 1864 - 24 January 1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of the self-help movement. His best known work, As a Man Thinketh, has been mass-produced since its publication in 1903. It has been a source of inspiration to motivational and self-help authors.

In 1903 Allen published his third and most famous book As a Man Thinketh. Loosely based on the Biblical passage of Proverbs 23:7, "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he," the small work eventually became read around the world and brought Allen posthumous fame as one of the pioneering figures of modern inspirational thought.

Allen published his own spiritual magazine, The Light of Reason, later retitled The Epoch.

His wife continued publishing the magazine under the name The Epoch. Lily Allen summarised her husband's literary mission in the preface to one of his posthumously published manuscripts, Foundation Stones to Happiness and Success saying:

"He never wrote theories, or for the sake of writing; but he wrote when he had a message, and it became a message only when he had lived it out in his own life, and knew that it was good. Thus he wrote facts, which he had proven by practice."

I bought this book as e-book and I cannot access it. When I try to bring it up it just closes out of the book (while using my nook) or closes completely out of the reader program (when I try to access it on my mac). Tried contacting customer service, but they have ignored my complaint.
