Do you ever look around at friends, family, colleagues, or the people you grew up with and wonder why their lives appear to be more successful than yours? Why you don’t quite measure up, while others seem to be so happy and in control? Why every self-help book or therapist fails to lead you to the positive results promised?

  • Am I under mounting debt and feel there’s no way out?
  • Do I feel trapped in an unfulfilling marriage?
  • Do I rely on medication to dull daily pains and poor health?
  • Do I want life to be more joyful, but nothing works?

Now write down exactly what is and isn’t acceptable to you about your current life and how you would like it to be…
