Have you ever asked yourself;

 

  • How did I get here?

  • How do I fix this?

  • How do I stop this crazy cycle and find peace & happiness?

  • How do I become the best version of myself? 

 

We are not short of great resources in a variety of subjects and from brilliant experts. In fact, we have everything we need to be all that we want to be. You may even be the smartest person on earth, carrying high-level degrees & great connections. While all this is awesome, none of it will uncover & reveal the capacity you carry for freedom & peace which brings the ultimate success. 

 

When we race after the success we know we are capable of there is an exchange. An exchange that means success comes with a price. According to Millionaire before 50, “What lay beneath the cover of happiness and success was severe depression. And that ultimately led them to commit suicide.” “The deepest pleasures are derived from interpersonal love, warm relationships, giving, appreciation, and gratitude,” explains Fran Walfish, a Beverly Hills family and relationship psychotherapist and author of “The Self-Aware Parent.

 

Striving for and accomplishing success in our dreams and goals is not the problem, it’s the sacrifices we are fooled into believing are necessary in exchange for that success. After all, we would never intentionally exchange our dreams for the ones we love. So I ask you this, why not both? Why not have success to our wildest dreams and a loving, happy and strong family and marriage? 

 

 

This 12-week course is designed with the goal to:

  • Help you put a get a hold of the unnecessary stress we believe is a package deal with success in every area of your life.

  • Equip you to accomplish a higher degree of results without the sacrifice of what and who you love. 

  • Build self-confidence that reveals the REAL YOU perfectly equipped to walk in the exceedingly abundantly more than you can think of or imagine a life. 

 

In order to change what you always get, you have to change what you have always done. 

 

Brian P Morgan said, “The number one thing that you will have to sacrifice to be great, to achieve what you are capable of, is your comfort.” I will add to that. I believe the type of success available to you right now comes when you make a decision to put you first! 

 

Let me ask you to consider this, let’s say for a minute I asked you to come to compete in the National Weight Lifting Competition. Maybe we are seeking to lose 30 pounds. Either way, wouldn’t you agree it is ludicrous to assume we can be ready for a weight lifting completion in 3-4 days? Or to assume we can lose 30 pounds in a few days? The first thing anyone will tell you is if you even attempt that you will hurt yourself almost kill yourself. Why? Because you can not be ready for a competition which will require you to lift a heavy amount of weight in only a few days. That is not at all how your muscles work. You have to take the time to build them slowly. After the time and consistent work, your muscles will begin to strengthen and take shape enabling you to lift and carry heavy weight without hurting yourself. If you initially commit to this process of building muscles and losing weight but then quit after only a few weeks, you will never see results right? 

 

Success in family, career, & relationships is the heavyweight. Making the decision to carry it all at one time will most likely cause you and the people love harm, sometimes even death of spirit, mind, and body. As you begin the journey of this 12-week course, can I submit to you beloved don’t quit? Believe in & value yourself enough to commit to completing the 12 weeks the way I designed, one week at a time. Little side note, several people recommended I write this to be done in 2-3 weeks. I respond every time is,

 

"It is impossible to do the work of setting people free and equipping them to successfully carry the weight of life, relationships and success all within a two-week process."

 

So, I would like to ask you now to make a commitment to go on this journey with me. Do work. Draw a line in the sand now and decide you are worth it. Dedicate this short season of 3 months to building the muscles you will need SO THAT you can live your life to the fullest measure that God has designed for you, SUCCESSFUL! 

 

 A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT YOUR BRAIN:

We already have the required equipment inside our brain that is ready for your use to help you live the life you desire more effectively.  

 

  1. The amygdala is a part of your brain that will react negatively when we begin to anticipate the future and what tomorrow brings with uncertainty and stress because we don’t know how to navigate it all. Add to that the pressure of keeping everyone happy in the process. The perfect storm is brewing and the amygdala kicks in and initiates the brain processes that create both fear and anxiety. 

  2. The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is our counterbalance to the amygdala. This part of your brain lights up when you imagine great things happening in your life. Either the perfect mate, a great job opportunity or the anticipation of an exciting experience. 

  3. Our brains have the capacity to change despite what scientists have concluded in the past. It is now known that the brain can change over time in the areas we use frequently. This is called neuroplasticity. 

  4. Your brain and how it has served you can change. The bad news is unless you engage in firing up the PFC you will build the muscles in your brain that resist change and will keep you stuck in the condition you & your relationships are in. The good news is you can change that by what you do with and feed your brain. 

  5. Thinking and focusing on a great successful life in the future, which you are qualified for, will fire up the neurons in your brain that are the same ones that fire when you actually act on that vision. 

 

Let me ask you to write out what your vision is for your life? Include a section for your family, career, & relationships. Please feel free to write this out on a special journey that will accompany you on this journey.
