We are very excited to welcome you to the new ExtraordinarySelf.com! This blog—and the e-learning programs we’ve developed to go with it—are the outgrowth of two careers and more than a century of combined dedication to understanding the beliefs, thoughts, insights and behaviors leading to success and satisfaction in life and work.
We want you to be satisfied with who you are and what you’re doing in this life. Over the years, we’ve learned a few things about getting what you want. 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, so that your success becomes an ongoing pattern.
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. Your mind can be either your best friend or your worst enemy. Luckily, your mind is in your control. At ExtraordinarySelf.com, we bring you information, strategies, techniques and tools to help you master your own mind for greater success—personally and professionally. Who are we? Dr. Diane Kramer and Donna Anselmo, M.S.
ExtraordinarySelf.com represents our desire and opportunity to share deep insights with the potential to help others, such as you. It also is the companion site to ExtraordinarySelfLearning.com, an eLearning portal with proven tools and training where you can practice our winning success strategies at your own pace. After decades using these proven strategies in face-to-face counseling, coaching and training, we have compiled our stories and tools so they will be available to you 24/7/365.
At ExtraordinarySelfLearning.com, you can read, visualize, practice and journal about what you learn, and let the learning take hold. We believe that practicing our techniques will help you sustain a positive outlook and positive feelings. As you practice, you’ll find yourself able to bounce back with resilience from any adversity.
In the meantime, our ExtraordinarySelf.com blog will deliver ongoing insights and perspectives on how to build more success and satisfaction in your life. We’ll be posting articles on many powerful topics, including Emotions, Self-Worth, Self-Awareness, Self-Defeating Patterns, Self- Image, Self-Talk, Shame and Self Attacks, Inner Critics, Outer Critics and more. Our articles will help you consider important factors influencing your own Self Power. And we’ll show you how to develop the emotional control, win-win strategies and action plans that will help you get where you want to go. You can learn whatever you need to, as long as you keep at it, chunk your learning opportunities into manageable bites, and take one learning step at a time.
