What To Say When You Talk To Yourself: Powerful New Techniques To Program Your Potential For Success – Study Guide Chapters 1 – 3

“How To Create A Positive Change In Yourself That Lasts”

People take in good self-help information all the time, but it never seems to last.

Why not?

The problem is not with the information. There are a lot of good helpful books and talks out there with information that can dramatically improve your life.

The problem is often with our mental “programming” and how we habitually think about ourselves.

This is how our self-images are created.

“Your success or failure in anything, large or small, will depend on your programming – what you accept from others and what you say when you talk to yourself.”

How successful you will become in anything is tied directly to your beliefs about yourself.

Researchers estimate that 77% of what we think and say to ourselves is negative. Talking to yourself in a negative way is negative programming and “wires” our brains for failure.

How do our minds become “programmed”?

Our minds become “programmed” through repetition. Your thoughts and what you say to yourself shape who you become.

What’s the best thing we can do to program our minds for success?

Take control of our day to day verbal programming. Start controlling how we talk to ourselves.

Action Item: Take the 30-day positive mental programming challenge.
