Read an Excerpt
Taking Care of Me:
What It is:
The greatest reason for outer success at work and in life is inner success.
I realize that taking care of business, means taking care of my "Self."
To begin with, I simplify my life.
I treat myself the way I would like others to treat me. I am good to myself.
I often stop during the day for One Minute to look and listen.
I look at what I am thinking or what I am doing and ask myself, "How can I take good care of myself?"
I quietly listen for an answer within me to the wisdom of my Best Self and discover what is really best for me.
When I clearly see what is best for me, I usually do it.
When I take good care of myself, I am less angry and happier with myself and others.
When I am happier, I work better. And I treat the people around me better.
