Be Resolved to Upgrade Your Self-Talk

Many deficiencies, limitations, and problems that people have in life are essentially rooted in their self-talk. The solution: better and wiser self-talk.

Regardless of the your usual patterns of self-conversation, right this moment it would be wise to be resolved to improve the way you talk to yourself.
