MindStory Academy

A School for People Who Want to Create An Extraordinary Life.

Heart, Body, Mind, & Soul

What is MindStory Academy?

MindStory™ Academy is an online school, group and private coaching for people who are called to make the world a better place while also making a good living doing it.  It's also for people who want tools to help themselves and others change at the mindset level in profound and lasting ways.

Here you'll find:

  • World class programs from top experts in personal and professional development
  • Knowledge and skill building that you never got to learn in traditional forms of education
  • A way to create a life that's extraordinary in all areas of life - heart, body, mind and soul

How is MindStory™ Academy different from other mindset programs?

The latest research in neuroscience and positive psychology has proved that limiting beliefs block our success. There are many tools out there now to help you release those beliefs and bad mindset habits. The problem is, many of those tools just scratch the surface.  Beliefs and habits of mind are actually just components of a larger STORY. Stories are like software programs in the mind. If you only release one component of the story, such as a limiting belief about your self worth, you won’t notice a difference in your life. It would be like taking out one piece of code of a software program.

If you can identify the limiting STORY, and replace that entirely with an EMPOWERING story, it’s like you’ve replaced the software system. Then you have the tools to create the life you REALLY want.  It’s about taking back control of your own mind and being the story PRODUCER instead of just the PLAYER. By learning how to create a Mind Story™ it’s like a one-stop-shop for personal development as well as a way to positively transform yourself and those you serve.
