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 THINKING; avoid your usual STINKING THINKING;
and make the BIG DECISION: I will SUCCEED!
