Three Tests for Practical Living

What you serve is what you get.


Are You Getting What You Want?


SHORT VERSION OF 3 TESTS

  • Is this the way I want to think?
  • Is this the way I want to feel?
  • Is this the way I want to behave?

Can I control others or life? NO!

  • Then I had better control what I can most control—MY OWN THINKING!
  • Now that I have controlled what I could—my own thinking—I now think, feel, and act more the way that I want to.
  • Now others and life are responding to me differently!
