You can learn to feel more good feelings more often and more deeply.

You can learn to have more intense positive experiences more often.

Good feelings and positive experiences are the most important, most valuable parts of your life. Period. Teaching health care providers how to use positive experience training with patients or students, I've stated this basic premise to thousands of physicians, psychologists, nurses, treachers social workers. I challenge them to dispute it. No-one has ever disagreed! Many come up to me at the end of a seminar to tell me, "I can't wait to start using this with my patients . But I'm going to start applying it to myself first." They use it to enhance their lives-- not to fix problems.

Positive experiences and the good feelings which connect them to you mentally, physically and emotionally are your most valuable assets. Your self esteem, positive attitude and ability to be happy and enjoy life all flow from these essential building blocks. But they can trickle or surge, depending on your PE skills. Wisdom dictates we learn more about PEs and good feelings so we can master them. My experience has taught me that anyone can learn and enhance these skills.
