  • Fundamentally Independent Thinking (FIT)/Rational Thinking: "If you think you can or you think you can't, you're right." Learn to think rationally in the face of negative beliefs.
  • SMARTER Goal Setting: Inconsistency can be elimated from your plans by planning SMARTER goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely, developed Enthusiastically, and attached to Rewards.
  • Commitment Contracts: Commit to changes in behavior by establishing a contract with consequences if you fail to achieve your goal.
