Why Changing Yourself?
You cannot become what you want to be by
remaining what you are.
The best place to start change is with yourself. If whatever

thousand times a thousand men." He recognized the ego presence that feels
threatened by and therefore fears the truth. This mental power is resisting

there are six neuro logical levels of learning,
communication and change. In a hierarchical order, they are: purpose,
