By Shad Helmstetter
First Published in January 1987 by Simon & Schuster Publishing


Talking to yourself is something that everyone does almost all the time. Helmstetter examines how what we say to ourselves affects who we are as people. Specifically, Helmstetter argues that negative thoughts have a negative impact on our bodies. The author uses techniques based on an understanding of the processes of the human brain. The book puts forward a way to think positively about yourself in hopes that this will improve all areas of your life. Helmstetter uses personal experiences and anecdotes to explain the value of positive thinking and how it can impact a person's everyday life. Many of Helmstetter's self talk techniques are described on the Affirmations page.

I work as a therapist in the mental health field and regularly read Self-Help books for myself and to incorporate into treatment programs. Many of these books have interesting theories which don't work or are too tedious to use with individuals seeking quick solutions to problems. This book teaches us that we literally become what we think and tell ourselves. Other books have touched on this concept in the past, but this book teaches us quick and easy methods to stop unwanted thinking/behavior patterns - to "erase and replace" our negative thoughts with ones which will build our success
