Leave frustration in the past and take action now for a more confident life!

When I look at other confidence courses out there, I notice how many specific situations they tackle. They have a strategy for social interactions, a strategy to help with eye contact, public speaking etc. All these strategies are designed to work in specific situations but what they may not realize they all stem from a deeper issue.

Having a strategy for making better eye contact, can help you stare at someone in the eyes, but has little or nothing to do with your deeper confidence level that causes the problem in the first place.

This strategy is like trying to clear your yard of dandelions by cutting them after they have grown. The weeds are a symptom of a deeper cause—the roots in the ground and the unhealthy internal environment of the yard. Having bad eye contact is a symptom of a deeper lack of confidence that is not being addressed.

My course however, uses strategies to get to the root causes—to the core of confidence. This way, you get rid of all of the all the symptoms of lack of confidence, by getting to the core of the issue. The better news? Addressing the core of your confidence, will dramatically improve many other aspects of your life as well.

Cleaning out the garbage in the core of your life, will allow for a much healthier environment that allows healthy green grass and flowers to flourish (yes in the case I am talking about the internal environment of your life).

When your confidence is driven by your core, you have the strength to break through any challenge, show up in any moment confidently and be your true self. I believe life will always test and challenge you, will you be ready?

Here is what people have said about my work:

  • “Steve’s energy is infectious.  He delivers deep and impactful concepts that are so relevant in the busy and cluttered world in a clear and methodical way.” -Tony, Director, Johnson & Johnson
  • "Steve’s coaching helped me to realize I had allowed my own beliefs about the world, and where I fit into it, to be colored by someone else’s story; essentially, instead of blazing my own path and crafting my own personal narrative, I was designing a life meant to be distinctive from someone else’s.”   –Rachel, Coaching Client, Strategy Consultant
  • “I have the worst habit of constantly doubting myself so what [Steve] talked about really hit home. It was so motivational! -Samantha, University Student
  • “As someone who has worked in learning and education in both the academic and corporate settings, I was impressed with how Steve implemented the session. He used humor, personal experiences, and energy to inspire.” –Gene, University Professor
  • “Seeing Steve coach himself out of some of the deepest, darkest times in his life into what he has become, is living proof that he practices what he preaches and he can bring out the best in [you].” –Eric, Northwestern Mutual
  • “He [Steve] is incredibly valuable at his ability to help bring out the best in people and team members. He knows how to focus on real opportunities and has the most important skill of all of being able to ask the right questions at the right time.” -Matt, TEDx co-curator

Teaching Confidence as a Way of Life

For the last 5 years I have been completely obsessed with learning about confidence. I did this out of necessity. Prior to my transformation, I was in a dark place. I was extremely depressed and had no confidence. Finally, rock bottom caused me to change. I started to seek out strategies to help turn my life around. My first teacher Tony Robbins, has had the most powerful impact on my life. I have listened to just about every audio tape he’s ever come out with—over and over again until I put into practice his best strategies. I have also attended his live workshop Unleash the Power Within 3 times (one of those as approved crew member) and his premium workshop Date with Destiny. These have been some of the most powerful experiences of my life and I am so thankful I was able to attend.

With a strong foundation with Tony, I have also expanded my learning and have read well over 100 books on personal development. Some of my favorites include: Mans Search for Meaning, The Power of Now, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Made to Stick, Creative Confidence and Smarter Faster Better.

I am also a certified practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)—trained by one of the industries leading teachers Steve Linder with SRI University (now Strategic Brain). I have also coached and mentored many people using the strategies I teach in this course and consistently get results.

I believe I was put here for a reason, to experience the dark times and find my way out so I can share my journey with the world. I believe inside everyone there is an unlimited source of potential. If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish extraordinary things. I am honored and privileged to help anyone on their journey to unleash that potential and live a confident life.
