I would, but MY DAMN MIND won't let me

In today’s world of social media distortion, teens face their toughest challenges ever.

And the battlefield is in their mind.    

Is your daughter prepared for the fight?    

Whether your daughter succeeds depends on her beliefs about herself and the world around her.    

But where do these beliefs come from?    

How do you help her break free from her negative beliefs and poor self-image?    

If you’ve been looking for a manual to help your daughter understand how her mind works and how her beliefs are affecting her experiences, this book is for you.    

Over the past 20 years, I have taught thousands of teens how to take control of their thoughts and feelings by helping them understand just how much power they have over their thoughts and feelings.    

And in this book, I’ve shared the exact lessons I’ve taught during my one-on-one sessions and in my workshops.      

This book will help your daughter: 

  • Understand how her mind works 
  • Change negative beliefs Replace unhealthy thoughts with positive ones  
  • Improve her self-esteem and self-confidence 
  • Use the power of her mind to create the success she deserves 
  • Create positive life experiences and much, much more!
