You’ll know which treats are ap­pro­pri­ate for the ‘ thing’ you are deal­ing with. Some­times you will have time, some­times you will have money. Al­lo­cate ac­cord­ingly.

Over time, the things you once didn’t want to do, may no longer be at­tached to bad feel­ings and thoughts - they may be­come at­tached to good feel­ings and re­wards. You may even find, that you no longer need to use treats when you are faced with one of those old things. This is good news, and it shows how you can re-pro­gramme the mind and how far you have come in un­der­stand­ing your­self.

At the end of the day, through­out our lives we are sur­rounded by all sorts of peo­ple do­ing and telling us all sorts of things. Good, bad, sup­port­ive, de­struc­tive. All those ex­pe­ri­ences give us who we are here and now. At ANY time we can re­design, sculpt, make changes, keep the good stuff, boot out the de­struc­tive. At ANY time we can get our hands on our steer­ing wheel and say:

‘‘This is MY Life - and this is how I want to LIVE IT.’’ Thank you for read­ing.
