How We Define Success

Do you wonder what it takes to be successful and satisfied in life? We’ve found that different people define success in different ways. We define success as learning how to consistently get what you want, in an ethical way, with great integrity, self-value and self-reliance. When your success becomes an ongoing pattern, you will experience more joy and fulfillment.

Developing the success pattern is more complicated than defining it. Unless you also learn how to live in an ongoing state of satisfaction and well-being, success can be accompanied by anxiety, stress and discomfort. It all depends on how your mind works. Developing mindful awareness helps. Your mind can be either your best friend or your worst enemy. Luckily, your mind is in your control. When you master your mind, you’ll have more control over your inner and outer lives. We can help you access your Extraordinary Self®, cultivate the extraordinary mindset, and build the extraordinary future you want. Take our Self Assessment to see which strengths you want to develop. Or contact us, if you wish to explore personal coaching.

Journey Forward with Confidence


Extraordinary Self programs help build the powerful mindset needed for sustainable success and satisfaction. Course graduates learn how to increase and sustain motivation so they stop giving up on goals and start reaching them consistently.

Our programs are proven to accelerate change so you quickly leave behind disappointments, hurts and frustrations, and increase resilience. They also help enhance your own sense of self-value so you maintain positive feelings about yourself, no matter what happens around you. In addition, our planning framework, exercises, visualizations, and tools and personal coaching options ensure that you are supported as you practice and internalize your new mindset and skills.


We offer the option of personal coaching with each of our programs. Our optional Coaching Package provides you with an accelerated path to ‘reinvention’. When you sign up for personal coaching, we meet with you first via computer or phone, and help you select the best starting point. We then work with you to further your changes as you work through the Extraordinary Self course or courses we select together. During the Coaching sessions, we help reinforce and troubleshoot your changes.


We can help you activate your Extraordinary Self, activate your extraordinary mindset, and build the extraordinary life you want. Results will depend on your goals and the amount of effort you put in. If you wish to change, and follow our lesson plan, it is very possible that you will enjoy results similar to those of thousands of successful program participants, such as:
• Gain the confidence you need to thrive in relationships, life and work.
• Gain clarity, motivate yourself and live and work with purpose.
• Develop a repeatable framework for success.
• Improve planning.
• Increase productivity.
• Lower stress.
• Make decisions with less anxiety.
• Enhance judgment.
• Improve communication.
• Build stronger win-win relationships.


If you are unsure about what kind of help will get you the results you need, take our complimentary Extraordinary Self Program Self Assessment. You will find a link to the Self Assessment under the Reinvent Tab in the menu bar and in the website footer.


Extraordinary Self ® Reinvention Courses are offered online. When you sign up for a course or courses, you are given access to our proprietary e-Learning portal, where you can engage in your course work at your convenience, 24/7.

Our learning strategies were developed and tested during more than a decade of research and testing in-person with individuals and groups, including a college program environment.

If you choose our optional Coaching Program, coaching sessions also are conveniently offered online via Go-to-Meeting, Zoom, Skype or other platforms, as well as by telephone. You can choose the coaching platform that works for you when you register with us.


Conceived by Dr. Diane Kramer, clinical psychologist and professor emeritus, the Extraordinary Self® Program was developed by a team of psychologists, social workers and business leaders in the mid-1990s. These leaders included Dee KInder, NeuroLinguistic Programming Trainer; Karen Bading, NeuroLinguistic Programming Trainer; Diane Huisinga, Clinical Psychologist; and later, Donna Anselmo, business and marketing professional. Over more than a decade of program delivery, team members continuously improved the program based on feedback and results from participants. The evidence speaks for itself. Our group and individual programs resulted in 96% of program participants reporting lasting success. Check out our testimonials on this home page for more information.

The online version of the Extraordinary Self e-Learning program was later re-developed by Dr. Kramer and Donna Anselmo, M.S.. For more information about our founders, visit our About Us page.
