Dear friend,

You wanted to go to the gym every night, but the evening scramble got in the way. You tried to eat less fast food, but a hectic work week torpedoed your plans. You intended to read more often, but kept falling asleep in your chair. 

We’ve all been there. All these moments of disappointment have one thing in common: you didn’t have the support you needed to follow through on your intentions. 

I’m here to offer just that—the helping hand necessary to create the change you most desire in life. 

I’ve studied the intricacies of behavioral change for years, and I can confirm that trying to go it alone on even the most minor habit installation is a setup for frustration and failure. 

No matter the habit you’re trying to add, 40 Days to Positive Change is an innovative program that will provide the aid necessary to completely instill it in your life. You’ll progress through a cumulative sequence of 10-to-15-minute daily lessons and associated exercises for growing and cementing your new behavior. Each session introduces a new practice, pointer, or moment of encouragement meant to gently press you through the steps of habit change and over the finish line to a more fulfilling life.

Anyone can change for the better. I’ve seen it firsthand. It is my sincere hope that with 40 Days to Positive Change, you’ll discover that the process of materially improving your life doesn’t need to be one of stress, dissatisfaction, and eventual apathy. 

With the right help, a disciplined process, and a few rewards along the way, you too can take the change that’s waiting in your head and make it into an invigorating reality.
