Book Review of “What To Say When You Talk To Yourself”


Personal development books are a huge part of the literary world, with books on practically every subject. If you’re looking to learn new skills, you won’t struggle to find a book to help you. I have added daily personal development to my routine, and I have a few books that I would recommend. One of them is “What to Say When You Talk to Yourself” by Dr. Shad Helmstetter.

This book was written to help people get past the limiting, negative thoughts that seem to become a regular part of their thoughtful dialogue. The author of the book is a well-known and respected behavioral researcher and psychologist who helps people work to change their mindset to a more positive way of thinking

The book itself is well written and easy to follow due to its conversational tone that helps you take in the lessons of the book. The novel also very clearly points out some subconscious behavior patterns without making you feel guilty for them.

I got quite a bit of insight from this book. Such as, it helped me reevaluate how I speak to myself daily and how it affects the way I view and react to the world. With the simple lessons that the author presented and the explanations of how these exercises change your mindset.

Dr. Helmstetter has a very diverse and excellent background in the concept of self-talk and uses his skills to teach the everyday person the connection between self-talk and mindset. One thing that differentiates this book from other self-help books is the clear and concise instructions that go hand in hand with the descriptions. This book allows people to take the necessary steps to make these changes. It isn’t just another book telling people that they need to change their mindset. It isn’t a book of lecturing and flowery paragraphs with no practical application. The book is a great way to get started in the personal development part of their lives.

I would recommend this book to anyone who struggles with the mindset or feels that they could improve their outlook.
