What to Say When You Talk to Yourself by Shad Helmstetter

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. So, our minds can either be like hell or heaven, subject to our self-talk.


Shad Helmstetter describes some simple but profound techniques, based on an understanding of the processes of the human brain, which have enabled thousands of people to reclaim control of their lives. 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. Whatever your particular demons, they thrive on your negative self-talk. That’s where they derive their energy from. And so, if you want a solution that really works, obsessively focus on changing the way you think.


Shad Helmsetter, Ph.D, is a bestselling author of a number of personal growth books, and one of the leading authorities in the field of Self-Talk. See if this makes sense to you…
