Wondering where to start? Self Assessment

Extraordinary Self® Reinvention Assessment

Worried about setting big goals? If so, you are not alone. The prospect of self-reinvention may feel daunting. You may not know where to start. You may feel it is too hard to change old patterns that block your way. You may feel overwhelmed with all the changes you desire in your life. Or,  you may have just one attribute, trait or skill that needs tuning. 

Perhaps you are looking to launch yourself into your future, full sail. Or, you just want to dip a toe into the waters of change. We get it.

That’s why we’ve designed the Extraordinary Self® Reinvention Program to match your own special needs. By taking the Self Assessment below, you can evaluate your specific needs and reinvention goals. The Self-Assessment below will help you decide how to begin and which courses to select.

Self-Assessment 1
Core Strength Needs

Is This You?

— You want to experience more success and satisfaction with yourself, your relationships and your productivity.

— You need a better way to reach your personal, relationship, productivity and/or business goals.

— You sense there is more to life and yet can’t grasp that inner satisfaction and outer success.

— You are sometimes too overcome with self-doubt to push forward.

— You find yourself enmeshed in negative relationships and self-defeating experiences.

— You crave more of what you see others enjoying.

— You beat yourself up internally when you think you’ve made a mistake or failed at something.

— You stop yourself from dreaming big dreams because you believe they won’t come true.

— You dread encounters with those who you suspect may reject and criticize you, or not recognize your value.

If you agree with most of the above statements, and you want to change at a deep level, then sign up for the Extraordinary Self® Core Course:  Awaken 8 Key Abilities for Your Extraordinary Future. (If the above list does not describe you, see the next section, Self-Assessment 2, below.)

In our deep  Awaken Eight Key Abilities for Your Extraordinary Future course, you will develop deeper self-awareness and learn how to use it for lasting change.

Specifically, you will learn to transform self-defeating patterns, low self-esteem and poor decision-making into an Extraordinary Self mindset with resourceful thoughts, feelings and behavior. You will practice and internalize the lesson tenets as you do.

You will learn to set breakthrough goals and move toward those goals, transforming failures into positive learning opportunities that get you where you want to be.

You will stop beating yourself up and instead learn to maintain positive motivation throughout your life journey.

You will start to experience ongoing success and satisfaction with yourself, your relationships and your productivity.

In this course, you will access eight powerful modules of Reinvention that work together to make significant change possible. This integrated course structure is designed to help you change multiple aspects of self systematically—with each change reinforcing the others—for extraordinary impact.

— Your feelings of stress and the stressors in your life hold you back from being your best self.

— You  are unsure about which thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns lead to problems for you.

— You want to understand how to change your thoughts, feelings and behavior to get better outcomes and feel more enjoyment.

There are many patterns that we can learn to change, among them:

• How you feel and what you believe about ourselves (our self-image and self-worth), about others, and about the world in general

• How you deal with failure, rejection and criticism

• How you handle self-defeating patterns, such as avoidance or procrastination

• How you make decisions, set goals and move forward to reach our goals

• How you deal with negative punishment, negative emotions, worry and stress

• How you handle relationships of all kinds 


Do you want to learn how to develop, embrace and sustain a new you? Are you ready to literally change your mind, your self, your thoughts, and behaviors to claim your personal power and advance your success in personal, relationship and/or business pursuits?

If so, choose the Master the 4 Steps of Change to Get the Outcomes You Want course on its own. Or, use it as a powerful catalyst to speed your progress with other Extraordinary Self courses.

This course will teach you a four-step sequence for mastering and sustaining change. You will learn to identify and transform thoughts, feelings, beliefs and actions needed to sustain motivation and the changes you begin. As you practice and internalize the lessons, you will facilitate change in your life. If you do the work, you may expect results including inner satisfaction and see direct evidence of the inner and outer changes that enhance life and relationships, and produce positive outcomes.

Our systematic four-step approach will give you skills and insights that last a lifetime.
