Preview What You Will Learn

Our thoughts are a major reason we fail to get desired results. Yet, few individuals know how to improve the functioning of their most important asset -- their self-talk. They never learned the long known techniques from psychology and Buddhism that improve thought and individual performance.

Your mind is like a garden. But rather than growing beautiful flowers, the winds of thought instead carry the seeds of weeds. Rather than seeing something beautiful, you have a tangled mess. But you can clear the weeds by using self-talk. 

This class focuses on how to better use your self-talk to cultivate thought patterns that motivate better results.


You will want to come up with your focus of application. One text used is Napolean Hills, "Think and Grow Rich." OR you you can read sections of Norman Vincent Peal's "The Power of Positive Thinking." These are timeless classics — they keep getting reprinted since first coming out last century. Find out the reasons why millions continue to read them.
