THE WISDOM OF L. S. BARKSDALE
STRAIGHT THINKING, HIGH SELF-ESTEEM, AND LOW STRESS
(To those of you who already have high self esteem, I recommend this anyway, for it has an incredibly valuable way of thinking about and in life!)
I HAVE FOUND NOTHING WISER NOR MORE HELPFUL
STRAIGHT THINKING ABOUT LIFE
DEVELOPING HIGH SELF ESTEEM
Years ago, when I took the initial self esteem course, it made a profound, huge difference in my life, even though I'd done lots of self-improvement activities and massive reading. I am profoundly grateful for what this has done for my life.
Later, when I began writing on what it takes to be happy and effective in life, I decided that this was so valuable that I ended up buying up the copyrights (so I could provide this to people for no charge!).
May you study these in-depth and experience the huge difference it can make in your life in terms of straight thinking (so you'll be happier), of self-esteem (as you'll eliminate what sabotages it), and of low stress (as you'll eliminate virtually all of that which might stress out a person).
Once you fully understand this, you'll be free of self/other criticism, blame, AND anger. (You may think the latter can't be done, but it is very doable!)
May you use this for your greater happiness!
