Hello, I’m Vic Johnson and I appreciate you stopping by our site.
I know what it’s like to be searching. I know what it’s like for “the bottom to fall out.” Between 1994-1997 I experienced more “character building” days than any other time of my life. Because my earlier success in life had been based on a foundation of misguided principles, I now faced severe personal challenges on several fronts of my life. During that time I moved in and out of a deep depression. While I never totally despaired, it was knocking at my door. I now understood what the saint meant by the “dark night of the soul.”
When I picked As A Man Thinketh off my bookshelf and began to read it, I couldn’t put it down. I read it through in one sitting, which isn’t too hard to do. The first time through I highlighted the key thoughts. On my second reading I began to underline additional passages that suddenly jumped off the page. By the third reading it was a marked up mess, testifying to the tremendous distillation of wisdom that Allen leaves with us. There is an oft-used expression “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” There is no doubt I was ready, and there is no doubt that James Allen was to be my teacher. I had a child-like feeling of discovery. That feeling, a satisfaction, that comes with encountering something new and delicious. In short, “it clicked.”
I have dramatically turned my life in an exciting direction. I have enjoyed more success and happiness in the last few years than in my entire life combined. All of the resources recommended on this site have been personally used by me and they are resources that have brought me to this point in my journey.
I hope As A Man Thinketh will have an impact on your life and I hope you’ll return often to our website.
I look forward to walking the path together.
