Takes More Than Self-Talk

Postby paralegalgirl » Tue Jan 10, 2006 7:35 am

"It takes more than self-talk. In the final analysis, you often would better literally push yourself into action. Often, you can make yourself-yes make yourself-undertake specific acts of courage, beard an employer in his office, ask a very attractive person to dance, take your idea for a book to a publisher. And keep forcing yourself into action long enough and often enough until the action proves easier and easier, even enjoyable." --Albert Ellis

"Beard" in the sense that Ellis uses it means to: "confront boldly". PLG
