A recommended approach: As in any of the sections but especially here, I recommend you read the "Learning (Overview) Modules" pieces near the beginning of each section. Having an overview and a better grounding can help to make the individual pieces you read and the exercises you do more effective and understandable. The "Internal Conversations" section is one which probably ever person on the planet should complete in order to have a much better foundation for living a life!!!

Being And States Of Being
We look at what we do, what we have and what we know, but it is how we are being that
can make a huge difference. An example that might affect an outcome would be "being
cooperative", or, on the other side, "being angry". Which way of being you choose will
affect your behavior and your results, and therefore, I would suggest, that it is worthwhile to
learn to choose states of being that work for getting results. And in order to do that we
need to define this area and learn how to choose and use those ways of being.
