Our Gift to You

A Message from Donna Anselmo and Dr. Diane Kramer

It’s a good day to celebrate! Why? We’ve finally launched online! For close to 15 years, we hoped to create an online learning experience deep enough to facilitate significant positive change in people’s lives. And, while busy with life and other work, we let that project slip to our respective back burners. Then, Coronavirus hit and changed everything! It propelled us forward at warp speed.

Understanding the worry associated with shocking loss and uncertainty, we felt pulled to counter some of the stress, anguish, and anxiety sweeping our nation. Knowing we had resources to help—including a proprietary online e-Learning platform and tons of proven course content—we pushed our long-held dream forward because we want to help the world right itself, even in a small way. We are grateful this little action piece is in our control when so much feels out of control. And, we are making two Extraordinary Self courses available to you for free now!

Our free courses, Transform Your Stress Landscape and Empower Your Self-Talk! (described below), are designed to build effective mindset skills and behavioral choices, as well as foster emotional resilience by facilitating inner change and self-empowerment.

If you are seeking calm amid the chaos, want help moving forward, or hope to stay productive while hibernating, we invite you to access these interactive e-courses. These Extraordinary Self courses infuse insights with skill-building tools, exercises, engaging visuals, guided visualizations, practice opportunities, a private online journal and moreat no cost. After you Register for Free Courses, you will receive an email with a private password for course access. Later, we will contact you to ask for your feedback on our courses.

As always, we encourage you to commit yourself to the process so you are sure to get the most possible from your learning adventure. We are ever grateful for your interest.

Be Extraordinary!

Empower Your Self Talk!

Are you too hard on yourself? Do the words in your head lead you to give up on hopes and dreams? Do you need a boost of inner power

This Extraordinary Self® Resource Course will help you understand and embrace the reasons for empowering your self talk—the voice that sounds like thoughts whispering (or maybe shouting) inside your head. Self-Talk can be helpful or hurtful; it can lead to self-power or self-sabotage. This course will help develop your awareness, connection with and ability to moderate your inner voice so it offers you helpful, instead of negative, messages.

Empower Your Self Talk! will show you how to change your mind, literally, by mastering the words running through your head. Results typically include more awareness of thoughts in the moment, greater self acceptance and more satisfaction in your life and work.

With the exercises and practice opportunities this learning journey provides, you will:

• Become more aware of the tone and messages of your inner voice—in the moment

• Tune into your Inner Voice with heightened awareness and new skills.

• Quickly recognize when that voice in your head is not helpful.

• Develop skills for changing negative language to supportive, soothing and/or positive language. (With practice, this skill will become a new and helpful automatic pattern.)

• Learn how to redirect your thoughts and inner voice so it becomes a positive, empowering resource.

• Understand and internalize the importance of how you talk to yourself in regard to your Self-Worth, Relationships, and Success Goals.

Choose this course if you wish to shift your inner voice from negative to positive, change sabotaging to soothing, and transform self-limiting to self-liberating while developing your own “Inner Language Coach.” If you wish for a more sound, clear and kind inner language and purpose, this course is for you. With transformed Inner Language, you also can improve the quality of your relationships.
