ForewordI first met Jim Newman when my wife, Lois, and Ienrolled in a PACE Seminar a few years ago. At the time I wasstarring in two of the longest running series in broadcast history,serving on the boards of directors of seven national corporations,actively heading up a half dozen businesses of my own, and enjoyinglife with a family of five. In short, I was financially successful,professionally secure, and socially responsible. So what was Idoing in middle age going "back to school"? And, most surprising tomost of my associates, what was I doing at this point in my lifetrying to learn how to be more effective? It's really quite simple.I believe none of us should ever stop growing, learning, changing,and being curious about what's going to happen next. None of us isperfect, so we should be eager to learn more and try to be moreeffective persons in every part of our lives. Nobody grows old byliving a certain number of years. People can grow old at sixteen ifthey desert their ideals, let their thinking become clouded withpessimism, or permit worry, self-doubt, fear, and anxiety toprevent them from taking risks. Therefore, I believe that this bookcould be a "fountain of youth"keeping one's thinking alive,elastic, and expanding, no matter what the calendar says. This bookcould easily be one of the most important events of your life. Itis not a compilation of high-flown phrases, noble-soundingphilosophy, and ego-soothing cliches. Hundreds of thousands of menand women have attended PACE Seminars over the years and personallyvalidated the concepts and techniques about which Jim writes. Eachchapter is a sort of roadmap for a more effective life, helping youto decide where you want to go and how to get there. The chancesare that you have attended some kind of a "how to" seminar. Nodoubt you have read at least one book dedicated to rekindling yourenthusiasm for life. You may think you've heard it all before.Buttake my word for itTHIS book can change your life. And, sincechange and growth are essential to a rewarding life, release YOURbrakes and start right now to accelerate your movement through theyears ahead.

You tend to act like yourself 107The most important segment ofyour "REALITY" structure is the combination of information andfeelings you have about yourself, and that selfimage acts very muchlike the setting on a thermostat:
You are "they" You are a creature of choice, and you live withthe consequences of your behavior. How you feel about that causeand effect principle is either releasing o*r limiting your use ofyour potential.

A participant in oneof our PACE (Personal and Company Effectiveness) Seminars summed itall up very simply. Paul and Gretchen had just bought a smallforeign sports car, and on the week-end preceding the Seminar theyhad driven down the California coasdine in their new car, revelingin the pleasure of the new addition to their environment. As theymade their way down the coast and back, while one drove the otherread aloud from the owner-operator manual. They 16
How do you feel about the fact that you are constantly changing?Of course, you know that you are different today than you were ayear agoeven six months ago. You have only to look at a photographor the home movies that were taken last Christmas. But those arethe physical changes that show up in photographsthe differences inweight, hair, style of clothing. How about the rest of youthebehavioral part of your system? Can you see that you are tliinkingand acting differently now than a year ago, or five years ago?Differently than yesterday! Changephysical, emotional change inyour abilities and in your relationships with your worldisabsolutely inevitable! It has been in the past, and even moreimportant, it will be in the future. The experiences of each dayhave an effect on your personality, your outlook, and yourreactions to the opportunities which you encounter. Of course,you-a-year-from-now will be a lot like youtoday in many ways. Butthere will be some very important differences, too. The changes maybe dramatic 15
studied the various dials, knobs, and control levers, knowingthat the more they understood about the automobile the more likelythey were to take proper care of it and use it properly for manyyears to come. With this experience vividly in mind from the recentweek-end, Paul told the Seminar group that the whole PACEexperience seemed to them like an owner-operator manual for thehuman system. As you move through the pages ahead, it may help ifyou think of this book as an owner-operator manual for your system,designed to help you understand yourself a lot better, to takebetter care of your whole system so that it will functioneffectively and take you where you want to go, quickly andenjoyably. With this owneroperator manual comes the PACE tool kitwith which to "tune up" and enhance your own personaleffectiveness, health, and happiness. Let me put this another way.If you just let the inevitable process of change happen in its "ownway," take your chances with it, the end result may turn out verywellor it could be disastrous. But it is not necessary to driftalong like a feather in the breeze and hope that everything willturn out all right, that you will be "lucky." You are not "stuckwith" the conditioning and habits of your past, nor do you need toallow others to determine your future. "They" are not in charge ofyour future! One of the most limiting attitudes a person canpossibly have is, "Well, that's just the way I am." You can decidewhere you want to go, what you want to becomean then deliberatelyguide the process of change in that direction. This book is goingto show you exactly how to do that. What are the results that youcan expect from reading this book? That is a little difficult forme to tell you right now, because the book will mean somethingdiferent to each person who reads it. I don't know (and right nowyou probably don't either) just which areas of your life you willwant to change. You will be making some decisions about that as wego along. But I can tell you this: When you have finished readingRelease Your Brakes! you will know a lot more about how to moveyour life in the direction that you want it to go. The 17
