We progress through this life often believing that our past experiences define us. We may believe we are essentially good, but have specific self-defeating theories that limit what we think we can achieve. Jason Hartman interviews life coach, Laurie Gerber of Handel Group® Life Coaching, about eliminating these falsehoods and overcoming road blocks to success. Laurie explains her five steps for creating wealth based on the Handel Method®. These are of course, applicable to any area of life. Change your mind. Find your role model. Make your plan. Keep promises and keep track. Go for it!

Laurie also talks about the “chicken” and the “brat” in each of us. We can make every excuse in the book for not pursuing and following through with our dreams. They sound legitimate in our heads, but if we’re honest with ourselves, they are just excuses that prevent us from realizing our goals.

Handel uses many different methods, beginning with a dreaming exercise and moving into purging all the negativity surrounding those dreams. Then the coaches guide you through the development of Personal Integrity® using the tools of promises and consequences. Developing Personal Integrity® is what gets people empowered to change themselves, their lives and the world.
