book: What To Say When You Talk To Your Self

 What To Say When You Talk To Your Self - Kindle edition by Helmstetter, Shad. Self-Help Kindle eBooks @

Shad Helmstetter, Ph.D., is the best-selling author of more than a dozen books in the field of personal growth. 

quotes from the book

  • The more you think about yourself in a certain way,
    the more you will think about yourself in that same certain way!

  • The human brain will do anything possible you tell it to do,
    if you tell it often enough and strongly enough!

  • The brain simply believes what you tell it most.
    And what you tell it about you, it will create. It has no choice.

Life is driven by programming, conditioning. Bad programs, bad life.
Best change: by self-talk

  1. Thoughts turn into electrical impulses, which in turn become actions.
  2. To create the life we want, we must take a step back and reprogram our mind.
  3. Understanding how self-talk works is the first step to reprogramming your mind.
