Excerpt from 'As a Man Thinketh' by: James Allan
James Allan is the author of 'As a Man Thinketh'. He was a British 'philosophical' writer who inspired and motivated others through helping them realize that:
'A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.... As the progressive and evolving being, man is where he is, that he may learn, that he may grow... When he realizes that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being, out of which circumstances grow, he then becomes the rightful master of himself.'
For a New Year's resolution, I strongly recommend reading 'As a Man Thinketh'. The audio file can be found here. Enjoy!
