We are continually ¡®talking¡¯ to ourselves within our minds. I do it,
you do it, we all do it! We are often inclined to dismiss this
self-talk as being rather unimportant. However, your self-talk will
shape your personality, and eventually your behavior. Think about it!
Rich believes that you can learn to: maximize your ENLIGHTENED
and make the BIG DECISION: I will SUCCEED!
