What is the Subconscious Makeover™ System?

I have been performing and speaking for over twenty years.  The most common questions that I am asked are; How can I use this for personal growth?  Can you make me thin?  Can you make me better at…?   I find that most individuals deep down already know what they want and know how to do it.  Usually the answer to why individuals are held back is a lack of direction, focus and unwanted stress.  The techniques that I have been using for years are based on the principles of subconscious awareness and attention.  These are some of the most powerful tools that we can use for personal self-improvement and mental well being.   This awareness and attention should be an ongoing process of personal development.  I have developed these empowerment tools and techniques to what I call the Subconscious Makeover™ System.

Subconscious Makeover™ system starts the moment you acknowledge change. It is the awareness and attention that you give yourself.  What your subconscious thinks, you believe. You have a choice and the ability to frame your reality. Your subconscious absorbs every spoken, written and subliminal message you send to it.  From the minute you awaken in the morning until the time you go to sleep, you frame your reality.  Whatever your desires may be, make that conscious decision that you have a choice and you are in control.  There is no room for doubt or second guessing yourself.  This goes beyond positive thinking.  It is a way of living and holding yourself accountable. True passions are likely to generate spectacular and inspired results in ways you can only begin to imagine.
