Eight Pillars of Prosperity
In a change of pace from his books on spiritual self-enlightenment, James Allen-one of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration at the turn of the 20th century-asks, What makes for prosperity? On what principles is a successful life or business built? 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. In illuminating these principles, Allen hoped to contribute to "the prosperity of the mass of mankind." If worldly success continues to elude you, then this may be the book for you. British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. Best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored many other books about the power of thought including The Way of Peace, The Mastery of Destiny, and Entering the Kingdom.
