It's useful because when our mind is clear, we think well, we feel better, and we function better. Our lives become less stressful, more focused, harmonious, and best of all, we can access our creative powers, which enable us to live our life purposefully. Do I say, "read this and you're problems melt away?" No, I say practice these steps, follow the suggestions, and I guarantee that your thoughts will shift, your feelings will shift, your actions will shift, and then your results will shift. In the end, ask yourself what might be possible in your life if you had more confidence than you have right now.
