I am happy to report that my attempts to buy the copyrights have been successful. It has been my hope that someday I would be able to perpetuate these great works.
THESE MATERIALS WERE SO GOOD, I EVEN BOUGHT THE COMPANY. (Copyrights)
IT SAVED MY "LIFE" AT A VITAL TIME.
EXTRAORDINARY CLARITY AND EFFECTIVENESS THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.
It is actually more about the finest "straight thinking" about life and reality that I've seen.
TAKE THE EVALUATIONS, AS A STARTING POINT AND TO LEARN FROM
Having studied a number of disciplines, some known worldwide, I find the thinking in the Barksdale materials to be consistent with the best but, in my opinion, to have the highest clarity and reasoning. The titles related to self-esteem or stress are secondary to what is actually being taught. What this is about is what I call "straight thinking about life" - so that the sources of unhappiness are essentially eliminated.
Also, in my opinion, it goes where the problem is and handles it very effectively.
"L. S. Barksdale himself was very successful but when he retired he addressed the question about why he felt so empty and didn’t 'feel good.' So he looked into it and devised what, from my reading and scanning of 1,000’s of books, appears to be the most effective tool for self-esteem, stress-free living, and straight thinking. Using the materials also virtually clears away any tendency to blame oneself or others. With regard to the latter, that means anger either will not appear or will quickly cease as this way of thinking pops back into mind, as would guilt or shame tapes disappear. Doing this thoroughly and completely will have a permanent, deep effect on your life, your relationships, and your thinking."
'Although it is on self-esteem, I think of it really as a “way of thinking”. It is really “straight thinking” based on addressing the realities of human behavior and correcting our dysfunctional stories about self-worth. It also addresses how to “feel good” in life – which is the basic thing we all want to do, but somehow sabotage or let circumstances determine. Practice these and you’ll feel much better about your life, regardless of circumstances. And you’ll find it so much easier to operate at a higher level of responsibility and to create better results in your life.
This is truly an excellent foundation for correcting the foundation that our culture has dysfunctionally created in our minds. I absolutely recommend, regardless of the level of self-esteem and/or confidence you are at, that you do this."
