International bestseller Profit from the Core was originally published in 2001 and helped many companies find their way back to profitable growth after the Internet bubble burst. Now, the fully updated edition points the way forward in today's economy with new examples and data that demonstrate how companies have met the challenges and opportunities of turbulent times by returning to their core businesses. The stronger your core business is, the more opportunities you have both to move into profitable adjacencies from the core and to lose focus and jeopardize the stability of the core. This chapter describes how to identify adjacent business opportunities, assess the right adjacencies, and avoid some common pitfalls of adjacency expansion. Numerous case studies on companies including Gillette and Hewlett-Packard illustrate how to ensure sustained profitable growth by systematically expanding into logical business adjacencies around a stable core. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 3 of Profit from the Core (Updated Edition): A Return to Growth in Turbulent Times.
By the author of As A Man Thinketh. In seeking for pleasures here and rewards hereafter men have destroyed (in their hearts) the Temple of Righteousness, and have wandered from the Kingdom of Heaven. By ceasing to seek for earthly pleasures and heavenly rewards, the Temple of Righteousness is restored and the Kingdom of Heaven is found. This truth is for those who are ready to receive it; and this book also is for those whose souls have been prepared for the acceptance of its teaching. --James Allen

Join the millions of people have already found the pathway to wealth and fulfillment with this book. "Every man is where he is by the law of his being; the thoughts which he has built into his character have brought him there, and in the arrangement of his life there is no element of chance, but all is the result of a law which cannot err. This is just as true of those who feel 'out of harmony' with their surroundings as for those who are contented with them
Allen's practical philosophy of successful living has awakened millions to the discovery and perception of the truth that "they themselves are makers of themselves". Building on the Bible verse. "As a man thinketh, so he is", Allen insists that it is within the power of each person to form his own character and create his own happiness. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
The aphorism, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," not only embraces the whole of a man's being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts. As the plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so every act of a man springs from the hidden seeds of thought, and could not have appeared without them. This applies equally to those acts called "spontaneous" and "unpremeditated" as to those, which are deliberately executed. Act is the blossom of thought, and joy and suffering are its fruits; thus does a man garner in the sweet and bitter fruitage of his own husbandry.

DREAM LOFTY DREAMS, AND AS YOU DREAM, SO YOU SHALL BECOME. As We Think, So We Are, the fifth book in the Library of Hidden Knowledge, invites readers to explore the pioneering teachings of James Allen, one of the first leaders of the self-help movement. Dr. Ruth Miller offers modern translations of three of Allen's most insightful essays. Using clear, concise language paired with practical applications, Miller creates an accessible way to delve into and explore the fundamental processes that determine how we interact with--and understand--the world. Allen's seminal theories in metaphysics introduced millions in the last century to the Law of Attraction, one of the most transformative paths to fulfillment in the modern age. In As We Think, So We Are, we find Allen's writing to be as important and life changing today as it was a hundred years ago. As Allen put it, "All that we are is the result of what we have thought. It is founded in our thoughts; it is made up of our thoughts."
In 1904, a relatively unknown Englishman named James Allen wrote a little book called As a Man Thinketh. The book has become one of the world's greatest self-help books -- "self-empowerment" is a better term -- for it not only reveals to us that the keys to success are within our own minds, it shows us how to use these keys to unlock the greatest fulfillment we can imagine. In this revised edition, author and publisher Marc Allen updates this classic, changing language that has become dated or obsolete, and honing the clarity of the message. He makes As You Think gender inclusive, showing how these principles are truly universal and apply to everyone, regardless of sex, age, race, beliefs, social class, or education. As You Think is a simple yet powerful reminder that "all we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts." We are the masters of our destinies.
Once again James Allen instructs us on how to improve our life and spiritual wellbeing through the power of positive thinking. He teaches us how to see what is in front of us and not rush by it. There are a multitude of opportunities for us all and this book will help make sure you don't miss them. Life is full of beginnings. They are presented every day and every hour to every person. Most beginnings are small, and appear trivial and insignificant, but in reality they are the most important things in life. -James Allen

Three Principles for Managing-and Avoiding-the Problems of GrowthWhy is profitable growth so hard to achieve and sustain? Most executives manage their companies as if the solution to that problem lies in the external environment: find an attractive market, formulate the right strategy, win new customers. But when Bain & Company's Chris Zook and James Allen, authors of the bestselling Profit from the Core, researched this question, they found that when companies fail to achieve their growth targets, 90 percent of the time the root causes are internal, not external-increasing distance from the front lines, loss of accountability, proliferating processes and bureaucracy, to name only a few. What's more, companies experience a set of predictable internal crises, at predictable stages, as they grow. Even for healthy companies, these crises, if not managed properly, stifle the ability to grow further-and can actively lead to decline.The key insight from Zook and Allen's research is that managing these choke points requires a "founder's mentality"-behaviors typically embodied by a bold, ambitious founder-to restore speed, focus, and connection to customers: An insurgent's clear mission and purpose An unambiguous owner mindset A relentless obsession with the front lineBased on the authors' decade-long study of companies in more than forty countries, The Founder's Mentality demonstrates the strong relationship between these three traits in companies of all kinds-not just start-ups-and their ability to sustain performance. Through rich analysis and inspiring examples, this book shows how any leader-not only a founder-can instill and leverage a founder's mentality throughout their organization and find lasting, profitable growth.
The Pathway of the Saints and sages, the road of the wise and the pure; the highway along which the Saviors have trod, and which all Saviors to come will also walk-such is the subject of this book; such is the high and holy theme which the author briefly expounds in these pages. --James Allen
