￿Many times what makes a person a victim is their own thinking and they miss many opportunities in life simply because they are convinced they can￿t. This was a learned behavior early in life that they are unaware of.￿ Mr. Walker paused and added, ￿The good news is...all this can be reversed!" (From The Secret of the Can.)

￿With both indecision and procrastination, putting things off builds stress and intensity. This adds more drama, which increases adrenaline and excitement in our life. When things are boring we easily recreate the drama and feel energized. This becomes a habit and a never-ending circle of intensity and insanity.￿ Mr. Walker in  The Secret of the Can



￿Think of your mind as a computer and your programming as the software. Some of the software was already installed at birth and other programs were added as a child. If we want to change our outcomes in life we have to remove our old programming and add new.￿ - Mr. Walker in The Secret of the Can
