And now you are going to be releasing:

  “Your Ultimate Visionary Mind: Transforming 
Your Life in 30 Minutes a Day.”

In your own words, can you tell us a bit about this terrific, new Life Changing book! 
Scott Schmaren talking

Scott Schmaren:  It is a book that helps people transform their minds so they can accomplish the goals they want in their lives.  It is a 3 part book starting with a background about myself & my story.  The next part of the book covers my  

 “Mind Performance Training™ (MPT)” 

This training allows people to make rapid and permanent changes to their lives so they can overcome obstacles, challenges and accomplish all of their goals, dreams and visions they have. The final part of the book highlights success stories of people who have used this powerful training to change their lives for the better. They are truly amazing people! 

Alex:  And we can do this in just 30 minutes a day?  
          Why everyday?

Scott:  Yes, you have got to work on your mind and it only takes 30 minutes a day.  You know it would be great if we could go to the gym one time and work out one time and have the perfect body. We would all like to do that. But that is not realistic.  And it is the same thing for your mind and take it in a different direction.  Because all of your life you have been programmed to do something one way.  You have got to work on it everyday just a little bit.

Alex:  When will the book “Your Ultimate Visionary Mind: Transforming Your Life in 30 Minutes a Day" be released?

Scott:  At the end of the year. 
Alex:  Excellent! I am sure it will be on the best seller's list! 
          I will make sure to buy one of the first copies!  

Alex:  Today for the Celebrity English readers can you give us one 'tried & tested tip' or technique. I mean can you give us one technique so that we can start changing our lives today?

Scott:  Get a 3 ringed spiral book,  and write down affirmations everyday using "I AM _________" sentences.  Don't type them make sure you write them down in your book in your own handwriting.  

"So how do you change the negative self images you may have about yourself and change your I Am"? 

You do it the same way you got the negative one, by repetition. Negative ones are like "I am fat", "I am Stupid", I am...Instead of repeating negative statement to yourself over and over, start writing and saying positive statements about yourself everyday. Start writing them down everyday in a notebook.
Write things like: 

“I am Awesome”, I Believe in myself”
“I Love myself”
” I am Worthy of all the great things in my life” 

and whatever else you need to write in that notebook to counter act the negativity in your mind.  I use this well researched technique everyday myself. You can do it too! 
Just try it! 

Alex: Phenomenal Tip!  Thank you Scott.  For the reader's of Celebrity English whether you know it or not, we all have negatives in us.  Scott's technique does work!  I think you will notice a difference in no time at all.

Scott:  It was an amazing experience!  I loved the energy and enthusiasm!  Just like in my seminar's, I love the energy of a group whether it is small or large.  It is so positive and invigorating! 

"The opportunity to help people is very rewarding!"

Alex:  Wow!  Truly Amazing! And you completed the Boston Marathon!  A Big Congratulations to you!!!
