How We Talk to Ourselves Really DOES Matter

What we say to ourselves is far less important than how we say it! For instance, when psychologist Ethan Kross ran a red light and exclaimed, “Ethan, you idiot!” It was not, “I’m an idiot!” it was “Ethan, you idiot.” Why did he use his first name!

Nothing in Your Life is Wasted!

At my fifty year high school reunion, I remember seeing Mickey, my dear friend from 50 years ago walking up the bleacher stairs on the opposite side of the gym.  Mickey had gained sixty pounds and I had lost my hair.
