You are what you think


Category : , ,

You Are What You Think by David Stoop, PhD, is the book that has made the biggest impact on me [while in prison]. This book helped me to identify my own thoughts (something most of us need to do). It also showed me how my thoughts affected by feelings and, as a result, my actions. It helped me turn some of the depression I was battling (well before my crime) around, as well as many of my self-esteem issues. I have (for the most part) taken back control of my mind instead of just letting it run wild. I force myself to see what my subconscious is telling my conscious; thus, I'm able to make more positive choices.

Thank you [for sending You Are What You Think]; because you cared enough to give, my life was changed!

From You Are What You Think:
Attitude is everything. Attitude is what makes the difference between those who succeed and those who fail. And it's easy to see-in other people. But it's not always easy to recognize when our own attitude needs adjustment, or to know how to change it. In You Are What You Think, David Stoop shows you how to use self-talk to make positive changes in your attitudes and beliefs. Self-talk can be private speech, thoughts, or external speech, all of which shapes emotions and behavior for good or bad. This popular, revolutionary book will help you: * choose healthy, positive thoughts * respond rather than react to circumstances * overcome guilt, anger, anxiety, and stress * release the power of faith * and more. You can use self-talk to gain control of the way you feel and act. You can turn out-of-control into self-control and make your emotions work for you rather than against you. You Are What You Think tells you how.
