“What To Say When You Talk To Yourself” by Shad Helmstetter, Ph.D. is an excellent book on the power of the mind. It is another great book on the subject.
Allow me to share a personal story about my own experience with this book.
It came into my life in about 2005. A time when I first began taking my network marketing business seriously. A side-line friend and I were talking, well, I was griping and complaining, about the setbacks I was experiencing with regard to forward motion in my business.
This friend started pointing out the power of my own words – the power my own words had upon myself!
The teaching of my parents came to my mind…the information they shared with me growing up…and I began asking questions. He just said, “What To Say When You Talk To Yourself, by Shad Helmstetter.
He said that he had picked up the book in a thrift store (for 25 cents!) and he ran out to his car and gave me his copy. I promptly devoured it. I just couldn’t put it down until I had imprinted it on my brain. I read it cover to cover.
Wanna know what I learned? I learned that it is important to know the power of what you SAY has on your ability to reach your goals.
I also learned the importance of subconscious programming. Brainwashing? Well, sort of. But think about it more like Brain Washing…you know, clearing out the garbage and making room for better stuff.
Is there any argument over the fact that whether you believe you can or believe you cannot you are absolutely correct?
I hope not. I live my life by that motto. It has proven to be true time after time. It is important to know that your subconscious mind is NOT in control. It is your conscious mind that runs the show. If you don’t control what goes into subconscious mind it will believe whatever seeps into it.
Let’s say you are watching a rather violent and graphic movie. If you don’t TELL yourself that it is just play acting, pretending, and the actor will get up from the scene and walk away to be in another movie another day then your subconscious mind will believe that what you are seeing is REAL.
Shad Helmstetter, in “What To Say When You Talk To Yourself,” tells about his experiences with helping people who want to stop smoking. He taught them to speak to themselves with great conviction thus reprogramming their minds to believe that they are no longer smokers. He continues in great detail about success story after success story from his work.
Since reading “What To Say When You Talk To Yourself” I have had other information come into my life that both confirms and builds upon the concepts that I learned from this mind-altering book. I highly recommend this one.
I hope you will take it to heart that you can change the circumstances in your own life by changing your mind. Talk yourself into success!
I’m not saying that it is ALL in your head. But I am saying that when you teach your mind to function on a higher level ideas will come to you from all (and unexpected) directions. I hope you act upon them because it is simply the law of attraction. *wink*
Go out and pop those dream seeds!
I will talk to you later.
