Thoughts>Feelings>Behavior

Your behavior is based upon your feelings, which are based on your thoughts.  So the thing to work on is not to change your behavior, but those things inside of your consciousness that we call thoughts.  Once your thoughts reflect what you genuinely want to be, the appropriate emotions and the consequent behavior will flow automatically.  Believe it, and you will see it!
Wayne Dyer
