Course Description

Note from instructor: Regular price of this course has been reduced for the colder months. Price was $60 and now it is just $44! This is the time of the year that depression is its highest, and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is setting in. Get the course for the best price of the year, just when you need it most!

We are going to focus on those natural human biases that plague your thinking, and that prevent you from reaching your goals. Maybe you are just tired of being stagnant, you are annoyed that when you look back on the previous year, you see yourself making the same mistakes over and over again. Maybe it makes you sad, angry, frustrated, and left thinking that nothing is going to change.

I am going to show you why you keep making these mistakes; we are going to discuss why these natural motivational inhibitors exist, and you are going to discover strategies and plans to overcome this negative thinking.

Essentially, this course follows the paradigm that I have created which is called, the K.A.S.S. System. I am going to give you the Knowledge, so you can take the Action, after we develop a Strategy, so you can reach Success you want in your life. KASS = Knowledge Action Strategy Success!

The important thing to consider is that if you don't take action now, if you choose to let your negative thinking get the best of you, you are going to be sitting here a year from now, wishing you would have simply taken a course to learn more about how your brain works. My background is in cognitive neuroscience, which is the study of how the brain works at the most complex levels.I have the knowledge and experience you need to get you the strategies that are necessary to overcome the self-defeating voice in your head.

So, what are you waiting for? Class is starting!

What are the requirements?

  • You are required to accept that you were a certain way in the past, but you need to believe in yourself that no matter what you are now, you can be whatever you want to be in the future.

Instructor Biography

David Dugger, B.S. in psychology. Author, educator, and Life Coach.

You can read more about what I teach at my website which is linked below. There is a picture of a globe underneath this box, click that. Also, if you go to "My Courses" page, you will find some great coupons for the course on my website. That is my thanks to you!

I earned my degree in psychology from the University of Nebraska. My background is in cognitive neuroscience, positive psychology, and I have even spent time in philosophy, quantum physics, as well as diet and exercise science.

My primary motivation is influencing others to improve their life as they become more aware of the way their brain effects their body, and how they make decisions. From my experience, people are not inherently bad; instead, many of us just simply didn't have someone to provide us with the knowledge; many of us were unable to learn from a positive role model during crucial phases of early development, and that effected our psyche to the point that now, you are not seeing the results you deserve.

It is my goal to challenge you to take the necessary steps so you can transform into the best version of yourself!
