Our actions guide our emotions, according to psychologist and author Richard Wiseman. In his book, The As If Principle: The Radically New Approach to Changing Your Life, Wiseman offers solutions for achieving day-to-day goals that do not take the popular self-help approach of positive thinking.

Wiseman says, if you want to be confident, loose weight, be more creative - then act "as if."  He examines experiments, histories and case studies and details how to apply this principle to daily life. And we can send this book right to your door.
