Attitude is everything.

Attitude is what makes the difference between those who succeed and those who fail. 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, Dr. David Stoop shows you how to use self-talk to make positive changes in your attitude and belief in order to

- choose healthy, positive thoughts
- respond rather than react to circumstances
- overcome guilt, anger, anxiety, and stress
- release the power of faith
- and more

Self-talk is a powerful tool that can help you gain control of the way you feel and act, making your emotions work for you rather than against you. This practical book shows you how.
