Many students, despite their conscious intentions, make choices that sabotage their success.
As a result of their self-defeating habit patterns (including behavior, thoughts, emotion) and unconscious limiting beliefs, students with great potential often thwart the achievement of their most cherished goals and dreams. They can become their own greatest obstacle.
By assisting students to become aware of their unconscious self-defeating habit patterns and limiting beliefs, we empower them to rewrite outdated life scripts and change their lives for the better.
