    the missing link

    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. Larry Hehn, author of Get the Prize: Nine Keys for a Life of Victory

    Tells Why 'What you Say is What you Get.'

    WHAT TO SAY WHEN YOU TALK TO YOUR SELF focuses on what happens when people get bad, negative data input, and how it can be changed by overriding it with good, positive data. The concept is not new, but Helmstetter makes it easy to understand, and he shows us the simple steps for using it to shape our lives, and our selves. It's so simple that, once you try it, you will wonder how you could have been ignoring your own power, even using it AGAINST yourself, for so long. Here is the good news about how to create the script for your own life, just by the words you use to describe it! The author does a great job of making complex physiological information easy to understand, and a pleasure to read. There are lots of 'AHA!' moments here, when a concept that had been only a vague notion in my mind, suddenly turned to crystal clear recognition of fact. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like their life to change for the better, or wants to help the children in their care grow up with healthy confidence in themselves and their potential.

    The best book ever written!

    I got a lot out of this book. Should be read by everyone out there. Do you want to get more self-confidence, reduce worries, improve grades, reduce pain or reach your goals? Well, if you want a better life, read this book. Buying this book is perhaps the wisest thing you can do. The methods Dr.Helmstetter presents are highly effective.

    Don't Say That

    We are sometimes our own worst enemy because we limit ourselves with our own thoughts. This book teaches you how to think better of yourself and by doing that you achieve more because you build new levels of confidence. It helped me reform my thoughts and my life.

    Outside of Think and Grow Rich, this is the best book I have ever read. It gives you a very detailed recipe for getting rid of all the bad programing you receive throughout your life. Make sure to get a copy.

    MUST READ!!!

    Shad Helmsetter is an incredible man! He hit the nail right on the head with this book! If you want to be successful, or even are just trying to figure out how to improve your self confidence, you NEED to (not should) read this book! I was astounded at how easily implementable the concept Shad talk about are y=to implement in daily life.
    Most books I've read, which is many, present excellent and very sound concepts, but they ARE very hard to sustain day in and day out. The concepts of Self Talk are AS SIMPLE AS IT GETS!
    Anyone, and I mean ANYONE can benefit from reading and implementing the concepts Shad talks about here! I've improved my confidence by leaps and bounds while I was still reading the book and within less than a week of finishing it!

    Life Changing

    This book is my Bible. It explains how our brain works and how we can change our thinking which in turn can change our life. The book has excellent examples that you can follow. These concepts helped me take control of my life. Amazing things continue to happen to me because I use the self-talk concept taught in this book. I have given away at least 30 of these books to friends and family because I have so strongly been influenced by this book. It has also lead me to become a Life Coach through Dr. Helmstetter's Institute so I can teach others to use these strategies.

    Great self-help read

    This is the first book I read in this area and fortunately for me it was an excellent one. After reading the book I wrote out cards for me to read and to think about every day and I must say that they helped.

    He combines humor with good, solid ideas on how you can improve your life just by thinking about it a keeping your mind focused on the ideas and concepts you want.

    It is an interesting and good read for anybody interested in getting help for themselves for such things as weight loss, improved sports, becoming a better person etc..
