YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE CRAZY TO TALK TO YOURSELF!

We all talk to ourselves all of the time, usually without realising it. And most of what we tell ourselves is negative, counterproductive and damaging…preventing us from enjoying a fulfilled and successful life.

By learning how to talk to yourself in new ways, you will notice a dramatic improvement in all areas of your life. You will feel better and accomplish more. It will help you achieve more at work and at home, lose weight, overcome fears, stop smoking and become more confident. And it works.

Shad Helmsetter, Ph.D, is a bestselling author of many personal growth books, and the leading authority in the field of Self-Talk.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Have you ever read an inspiring 'self-help' book or heard a tremendous motivational speaker that made you want to make significant positive changes in your life? When you tried to implement those changes, did you notice that they were temporary at best, and that you eventually fell back into the same self-defeating patterns that held you prisoner in the first place?
Helmstetter rightly points out that the majority of information that our subconscious mind receives, from both external and internal sources, is negative. At any time within our subconscious, three negative thoughts are fighting one positive thought. Not knowing right from wrong, our subconscious chooses to believe the most dominant thought pattern. Unless we feed more positive messages to our subconscious, we become a prisoner to negative thought patterns.
This book reveals a simple way to overcome the onslaught of negative thought by literally feeding positive thoughts into our subconscious through Self-Talk. More than just affirmation statements, Helmstetter shows how to get specific and attack problems at their source.
This book will serve you well by itself, and will be even more effective as a catalyst to help you apply success principles from other books and speakers. This simple concept of Self-Talk will allow you to take success principles that are common knowledge, and convert them to common practice.

I came across Shad Helmstetter after I started an Amway business and started going to IBS seminars. I can honestly say that this book has had a more profound effect on me than any other book I have ever read. Its message is so simple and yet very few people actually do what he recommends. If you have anything in your life that you are unhappy about and want to change, read and study this book, apply the knowledge and your life will change - I know because mine has.

Having read many a self-help book I would say this is the killer. It is simple but brilliant. If you want to get your negative stuff sorted then get this book!

This book is a classic .It is easy to read ,inspiational and very easy to put the idea into practice and does not require the usual 20 minutes at dawn !! If you have read many self help books you will know what I mean !!It is an old book so a little quaint in the lingo but that does not detract from the simplicity of the message .Wish I had bought it years ago and I will order another couple of copies to give away .

There are a lot of self help, motivational, self improvement books out there on the market. To often I have found reading some of them like going along to an inspiring conference where there is the most inspirational speaker giving everybody the most awsome boost to their life. The sort of conference where you come out feeling on top of the world, ready to take on anything. Then, in the morning you are still thinking about what was said and how to tackle the changes you wish to make and how much better things are going to be. Then the next thing is you have to get the kids ready for school, or you need to run and catch your train, maybe somebody pulled out in front of you in their car and the next thing you know, this all inspriring speech has been long forgotten. It is at these times when you need someone to boost your confidence and give you a push in the right direction but they are never there. This is what I have found with most books until I read 'What to say when you talk to yourself' What you learn is that all the motivational words and help was there all the time, and it is already there in you. It is something you apply during your daily life amongst the daily routine. You don't have to take lots of time out to use the methods.

People say, it is not for me, I don't do these kind of books or they are for other people, I just don't belive in it. However, if I said to these people, I really can't be bothered about something or I really should give up smoking but I can't , these same people are the ones that may very well start giving me encouragement and saying yes you can, or come on try a little every day, you can do it !! Well, guess what they have done for me what I could do myself and which is the what the very basis of this book is about.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book that I have found which doesn't focus on the cliched messages which most self help books dish out, but actually talks to you in a language that you understand and that makes a difference. It really tells it like it is! I have used the ideas in this book and they do work. They are easy to use and explained simply. There are no false promises - this book does exactly what it says it does and it seems to be geared to real people who have other commitments in their lives. I have read a lot of self-help/ psychology books and this is one of the few that really made a vivid difference. I have already managed to get three other people to buy it and I reccommend that you do the same .It will work.

Format: Paperback
After just reading a few pages of this book I started to notice the sheer volume of 'negative talk' that I hear - both from myself and others. Most of this kind of talk is nothing more than a habit built up over the years but by first recognising it and then changing it, you can get a whole new image of yourself.
The book gives you instructions of changing that negativity in many ways. If you're someone who doesn't have much time you can just stick to talking to yourself silently but if you want to pursue it more, the book has in-depth instructions for writing your own scripts and producing audio tapes.
