Charles Lennox-Wright (1876-1932): Catching a Dream


"Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think." -- British Statesman, Benjamin Disraeli

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 -- the way their mind thinks. They never learned the long known self-talk 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 produce better results.
