(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


I didn’t ‘wake up’ until I was 35. I had lived with no plan, just showed up every day and reacted. Since I was pretty quick, smart enough, and had lots of energy, all in all, it worked pretty well. Then one day it dawned on me that what I made of my life was up to me rather than up to circumstances. I needed to be at cause rather than effect. It was a wake up call indeed.

I plunged into goal setting, life planning, visualization, affirmations, the tools of that time. And they ‘worked.’ I started defining and getting my desired outcomes. Then I began to notice that my Coaching clients who were living highly successful lives seemed to have things come to them easier than I was.

The difference was rather than focusing on making outcomes occur they focused on removing the barriers which stood between them and their goals. Sort of like removing speed bumps on a road makes the journey smoother, easier, and quicker.

Today we know the biggest and most effective barriers to getting what you want are the ones inside, the barriers which are from your deepest mental conditioning. And most of them you don’t even see because you’ve lived with them (and compensated for them) for so long.

There are many tools readily available for you to use to identify and resolve/remove/heal your inner barriers to success. Get help with this, it’s not hard.
