The Mastery of Destiny by James Allen

In this companion piece to The Life Triumphant, the bestselling author of the inspirational classic As a Man Thinketh continues his life’s goal of revealing universal principles-both spiritual and practical-to empower the individual. With his emphasis on personal responsibility and harnessing one’s inner power, he covers such topics as the Science of Self-Control, Training of the Will, Cultivation of Concentration, the Power of Purpose, and the Joy of Accomplishment.

This is self-help for the inner self, from a man who believed that we alone are masters of our own destiny.

If I could sum up this beautiful book by James Allen in two words, it would be:

Philosophical.
Practical.

And definitely,
Methodical.

He carefully weaves a thread of reasonableness over the mind of his reader, as he leads him out of the corridor of impotence into the yard of power.

Many interesting topics of discussion and examination of ones own mind, thoughts, actions and methodology behind them.

A great read. Will definitely read again
