Chapter One

Taking Care of Me:


A Summary

What It is:

The greatest reason for outer success — at work and in life — is inner success.

I realize that taking care of business, means taking care of my "Self."

To begin with, I simplify my life.

I treat myself the way I would like others to treat me. I am good to myself.

I often stop during the day for One Minute to look and listen.

I look at what I am thinking or what I am doing and ask myself, "How can I take good care of myself?"

I quietly listen for an answer within me — to the wisdom of my Best Self and discover what is really best for me.

When I clearly see what is best for me, I usually do it.

Why It Works:

When I take good care of myself, I am less angry and happier — with myself and others.

When I am happier, I work better. And I treat the people around me better.
