Powerful free lessons for happiness and wealth



In this course, you will learn:

  • Why we need creativity;

Along the way, I’ll encourage you to make use of a wide variety of support pages and activities that will give you the confidence to differentiate your thinking … to take the lead:

Examples; Exercises; Puzzles; Definitions; and Quotes.

Create neural pathways of good habits.


At the end of each lesson, I’ll be reminding you to teach as you learn so that you eventually find yourself surrounded by a “bubble” of like-minded creativity and enthusiasm for the “differentiated pathway”.

  2. Come back fresh and work each lesson (10-15 mins each) thoroughly; and
  3. As you learn … share, and teach. Establish neural pathways of positive habits and create a “bubble” of creativity all around you.
