Curriculum Overview

Part One: Personal Process

personal process for certified optimal thinking trainer

You will experience a journey of personal discovery, transformation and optimization. Although it is unrealistic to expect to be your best and think optimally all of the time (because you’re human and get off track), it is in your best interest to use Optimal Thinking as often as possible to optimize success. Initially, you learn how to gain instant access to your best self in any situation. You also learn three simple techniques to monitor your use of Optimal Thinking, and the key to employing it consistently. We will then explore core beliefs (conscious and unconscious) that inhibit you from thinking optimally, accessing the full power of your mind, and enjoying the best of life.

When you overcome self-limiting beliefs and behaviors, you can explore new exciting options, make decisions in your best interest and achieve the best possible results. You will accept and surrender what is out of your control, and optimize what is within your control. Powerful exercises are provided to identify and resolve unfinished projects, relationships, financial issues and anything that compromises personal power and career success.

Having completed the personal optimization process, you become fully established in the present. You are then able to make choices that serve your best interest. You can fully explore and identify your ultimate life purpose and create a SUPREME plan that is in your best interest. By aligning all aspects of yourself with this purpose, you create your optimal road map and live your best life.

Part Two: Training, Consulting and Sales Skills

Upon successful completion of the program, you can develop a business that inspires superlative achievement, maintains healthful boundaries and produces optimal results.
