“If our habits of thinking are beneficial,
We tend to experience positive results,
Such as happiness, personal satisfaction,
Even material success.
If our habits of thinking are counterproductive,
We often experience the opposite: unhappiness,
dissatisfaction and the nagging feeling that the
deck is somehow stacked against us”
