A good marketer would start with touching your pain points.
We start with the TRUTH.
Here's what this course is and what is not about:
• This Course Is Not About Magic Formulas
We have proved again and again in our lives that dreams do become a reality even when you start with almost nothing, but nowhere along the way did we find any magic formulas for success. We discovered how they hurt you instead, and we'll tell you all about it in this course. Sorry, if you want instant success formulas, we cannot help you.
We DO KNOW what it takes to start when you’re alone and afraid, when you have no knowledge, no money, and nobody to encourage you along the way. We WILL help you here.
• This Course Doesn't Give You 3 Easy Steps
Many books and courses promise you 3 or 6 or 10 easy steps you to get what you want in life. And when the theory doesn’t work, what happens? You get even more discouraged, hurt and frustrated than before. We are here to tell you that steps don't work, and they will hurt you if you don't build your dreams on love and reason.
We are here to guide you through the difficult steps, because there will be difficult moments in the pursuit of your dreams. We’ve been through them, we've lost our money, we've been hurt by our friends, and we know how hard it can get on the way. We will prepare you for these dark nights, and guarantee you won't give up or give in.
You will learn to recognize the dark times and what they really mean to your growth, and you will develop the spiritual anchors to keep you going when the going gets tough.
• This Course Is Not Woo-Woo Stuff
Just because this course is in the personal development category, it doesn’t make it new age. If you are looking for a guru, if you want to dress in feathers, drink bitter juices and chant in Sanskrit, groove on, but not here. We believe in what Jesus said: “By their fruits you will recognize them.” We believe real-life stories. We believe in the message, and not in the channel. Dr. Dragos has a scientific background, but he's seen in his life the power of love, and the love of God for you. He will tell you the truth, and empower you to be responsible for everything in your life. That's where you will find your inner power.
THIS COURSE WILL ACTUALLY HELP YOU IF:
• You’re considering a career change.
• You’re an aspiring entrepreneur.
• You’re stuck in wage slavery, unfulfilled in your job and looking for a way to be free.
• You're going through a mid-life crisis.
• You can’t seem to find your place in this world and feel empty in your heart.
• You're a leader, manager, HR professional who wants to be authentically successful.
• You're a coach or self-help student.
• You're an aspiring leader who wants to change the world.
• You’re tired of just "daydreaming" and want to actually “live it."

I’m Dr. Dragos, a dreamer scientist.
“When your pockets are empty, Go where you heart is full.”
I stand firm behind this saying because I’ve proved it in my own life.
Everyone thinks I had the money, I knew the right people or I just found the shortcut. No.
I actually started by being a below-average student in Romania. I was living with $100 a month (not usual in my country), I was passing my exams (not always from the first attempt), but I didn’t excel in anything, and I was caught in a very painful relationship. I had no friends and I ended up hiding from my girlfriend in bookstores and libraries. It turned out for the best for me. This was the first step towards learning how to make your dreams a reality: Life happens for you, not to you.
After reading tens of books in the non-fiction section - from ancient manuscripts from various spiritual traditions, to marketing, entrepreneurship and business – my mind begun to change. I begun to see the effects of the knowledge I've gathered in my life. I thought my way to the North and the South Pole even though I had no money. I got into a Ph.D. program in aerospace and received awards for my research and software innovations. I was the engineer of a Mars Simulation Mission, and I studied at NASA.
I had successful projects, and also had my major share of failures.
The knowledge from the books was not enough anymore.
I am a firm believer in the idea that if you teach something, you must prove it in your own life. Therefore, I left the security of a corporate job, gave up everything and invested my money in making a movie about success and fulfilment: The Amazing You.
I am still a student of life, and I will never stop learning. Everything I learned and experienced will help you make your dreams a reality, and “by my fruits you will know me.”
This is why I have created this online course: to open your heart and unleash in you the desire to follow your dreams. This course is not all you need or a magic formula, but it is probably the best start for you on your journey.
“Love is the dream that doesn’t end when you open your eyes.”
The essence of all of my work can be distilled into this short sentence: love is the dream that doesn't end when you open your eyes. Follow your love means live your truth, which is the most obvious and ironically, the hardest thing to do in this world. I’ve been there.
WHY IS SO IMPORTANT TO LIVE YOUR TRUTH OR FOLLOW THE LOVE
When you live your truth, you act aligned with your mind and heart. Your body functions at optimal parameters, and your immune system is strengthened. You are serene because you don't have inner conflicts. You persist in learning, and you explore until you have the knowledge, and the experience required to succeed. You do the work. You are fulfilled by the process, and by the result. You flow toward your dream, rather than pushing against it. You have the grit to suffer through the brief difficulties that show up along the way. You become independent of the social pressure, and you think for yourself. You share your work with the world, and that makes it meaningful and rewarding. You are inspired to continue. Love flows through you, and you feel free. When you live your truth, you take risks because you know the cost of sacrificing who you are is far greater than losing money, friends, or other fleeting external possessions. You live in peace because you are fulfilling your heart's calling.
When you ignore your truth, the mind goes against the heart, and you act against your will. Your body is knocked out of balance, and your immune system is weakened. Eventually you fall ill. Your inner conflicts tear you down, you are exhausted, and burnt-out. Anger, anxiety, and depression are almost certain. You try everything―alcohol, drugs, sex, games―to avoid feeling the pain, but nothing works because truth cannot be denied. You don't care about your work, you don't share it with others, and that makes it meaningless. You get paid to do your job, but you don't see any point in what you're doing, and it feels like a waste of time. You hate the process, and you struggle only for the outcome and the weekend. You are not willing to risk anything to give your dreams a chance, and you claw to material possessions because you think they can remove the hollowness from your heart. When you ignore your truth, your mind and behaviors become prisoners of the social environment. You strive to please others, to fit in, and feel accepted. In spite of that, you still don't feel accepted, and not because others don't accept you, but because you haven't accepted yourself as you truly are. You can't stand being alone with yourself, and you feel an intolerable sense of emptiness because you have rejected the very part of yourself that gives meaning to your life- your heart. You live in fear because you are not fulfilling your calling.
IT'S TIME TO START. WHY NOW?
According to scientific research, there's almost a billion people who are unfulfilled, and don't care about what they do. They live in pain because they have dreams, but do not know how to make them a reality. This doesn’t have to be this way. You can do something that gets you excited and makes you feel good about yourself and about life. I’m not being a rebel here, and I’m not in my middle age crisis, I just discovered that there is another way.
It’s not necessarily about working from a beach, it’s not about traveling the world, it’s not about quitting everything and going to the end of the world to be a volunteer. It’s about finding that thing that makes you excited about what you are doing, feeling peaceful and joyful, it’s about finding your truth. This is where this course comes in. It helps you find your truth and work the skills and courage to make it a reality. What if today you stop just talking about it and you actually make a change?
WHAT YOU GET FROM THIS COURSE
1. The first and the most important step is to LIVE YOUR TRUTH. In the first part of this course, you will become FREE.
You will become free to be you, free to finally embrace your truth, your dreams, your passion and your purpose in life. And when you’re free to be you, when you're free to dream as you want to dream and play big in the world, then you will develop the motivation, confidence, and passion to act and keep going. You will learn why many of the things you've done got you nowhere or even hurt you. You will stop doing what worked against you for so long and you will start doing only what's best for you.
2. You now got the confidence and passion to act, so you will learn the “nuts and bolts” of how to transform your dream into reality.
You will get the most scientifically proven leadership instruments in the world: NASA’s leadership program. This system will guide you to apply the necessary steps to make your dream a reality. You will get the "map" to know where you are, what's working, what's not, and the exact thing you need to improve to reach your dreams faster. This information has been applied by thousands of NASA and Fortune 500 teams, in 75 countries during the last 17 years and it works with scientific accuracy. It will work for you guaranteed.
3. You have found meaning in life. You have the best tools in the world to make your dreams happen. Now let's prepare for the future. All books study the past, but you will have to live in the future. So let's prepare for the future.
We live in an exponential world, where half of the jobs will be automated in the next few years. You need to prepare for the future and you need to start right now. The opportunities are incredible and the world is far better than you think. In this part, you will discover why NOW is the best time in history to start working on your dreams. You will feel empowered to commit your life to living your truth, to working on your dreams, because hope took the place of fear, failure is very cheap and there are no more excuses.

The context my family grew up in destroyed people. The context we live in empowers you.
What is Social Context and how it can influence you without you even knowing.
“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so” - Mark Twain
In this lesson you understand how the social environment controls your thinking, your decisions, you behaviors and your results.
If you want to be a great leader, you must understand the power of context.

Social context is a broad concept described as an invisible social field that drives the behaviors of people operating within that context.
Living the truth may sound like a vague concept but it has serious real implications in our lives.

More than 90 percent of the daily news are negative: from increasing problems about population size, financial crises, corruption, water and food scarcity, health threats and pandemics, social unrest and conflicts, terrorism, war and disasters. News media preferentially feeds us negative news through all our devices, phones, tablets, laptops, car radio, TVs, constant dangers in high definition all around us. No wonder we are fearful about our lives, about our dreams, about the world and our future.
The reason why we see mostly negative news is because they make their money by selling your attention to marketers and the more you are hooked to their channels, the more money they make. To do so, they target one of the most ancient responses of our brain to danger.
Learn how the news media is giving us a distorted pessimistic image of the reality. Learn how they do it, gain awareness and be in control of your own mind and your own life.
According to scientific data, we will soon have the ability to meet the needs of every human on our planet and we will be able to provide goods and services once reserved for the wealthy few to everyone.
In the future, when software and robots will have taken most of our jobs, we will rethink what we should be doing with our lives. In today's economic model “people work, and then they get money, and then they can buy the things they need” said Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering at Google. In the future we will reverse the economic model and everyone will have a basic income and the freedom to choose how they spend their lives. Instead of working for a living, we will live to work, to pursue our passion and follow our dreams.
Because your mindset matters, my purpose with this video is to share with you the data supporting the positive side of the equation and to give you insights into the fundamental truth about where humanity really is going.
What is your will in this great world that's emerging? What do you will to do with your life? If you align your thoughts, feelings and behaviors with Love itself, grace will carry you and your dreams will become a reality. What matters to you? Because you cannot run away from what matters to you and expect to find happiness, peace and meaning. What if I told you there's almost a billion people in the world who are unfulfilled and unhappy, who live in pain and do not care for what they do?
