My daughter asks me all of the time, "How do you do it all? When I get home from work, I don't feel like doing anything." Do you feel that way too?
At the end of the day, we often don't feel like doing what it takes. Here's what happens…
Does your life look like this?
Let's visit Anita's house. She's hit the snooze button one too many times. She realizes she's going to be late again. She pulls her tired body out of bed and starts the Mad Dash Shuffle. Rushing to the bathroom, Anita lets out a little yelp and swears as she stubs her toe on the books piled up on the floor next to her bed. Darn, if only there were more hours in a day, she could get everything done! Good Lord, the bathroom tiles are cold this morning.
ICK! The mirror's dotted with God only knows what and the sink looks like it's the source of a science experiment.
Anita, now sort of awake after a quick shower, dashes into the kitchen. Oh great! She knew she should have done the dishes. She had been so tired after rushing around all day, like she always does, that she couldn't stand the thought of being in the kitchen one more second after cooking, serving and clearing dinner. Now, not only was the sink overflowing, there wasn't even a clean cup for her coffee!
Anita yells down the hall for her kids to get moving.
She listens for the familiar sounds of the school day morning. Anita wasn't disappointed.
Mooooommm, Where's my …..?
Mooooommm, I can't find the….."
"Moooooommm, I need a ride, I can't bring my project on the bus…
Anita manages to get the kids out the door, just in time to catch the bus. Someday there'll be time for breakfast. Someday when things are not so hectic.
She grabs the project she has to drop off at the school on her way into work, jumps in the car happy to see that at least she remembered to get gas yesterday. Anita glances at her watch. She's going to be at least 15 minutes late for work…again. Oh no, more like 25!
Anita grabs the steering wheel with both hands and taps it repeatedly with her frown-lined forehead. Grumble, Grumble, Grumble. This is so unfair. If only there were more hours in a day.
She rushes into her office, 25 minutes late, drops her stuff and grabs for the ringing phone – grumbling at the person on the other end. The caller happens to be her not too happy boss.
Deep inside, Anita is embarrassed and frustrated. This is not how she wants to live, but no one ever showed her how to manage her life. She aimlessly struggles just trying to make it through each day. She feels like such a failure. She feels deep in her heart that her kids are embarrassed too, thats why they treat her so badly. They are so mean. She tries to find comfort by losing herself in TV and Rocky Road ice cream.
I've been there too. Have you?
Change your programming
Everything Anita is doing is out of habit. Bad Habits. All she needs is for someone to show her how to replace the bad habits with good and effective habits.
- Staying up late watching TV is a habit
- Going to bed at a decent hour is a habit
- Eating fast food is a habit
- Making healthy dinners is a habit
- Doing the dishes after dinner is a habit
- Taking the garbage out on garbage day is a habit
- Getting to work on time (or not) is a habit
Just think how many things you do that are habits! The things you always do…
Now let's see what your life could look like -
The alarm goes off, it's set for 15 minutes earlier than usual. You smile as you get up. You're thinking of how excited your child was last night with the school project she had finished over the weekend. She'd had plenty of time to touch it up here and there last night.
You are eager, as usual, to start your day, there was so much to look forward to. Going into the carpeted game room that you vacuumed last night, you slip your Pilates DVD into the player.
A half hour later, all stretched and feeling ready to take on the day, you head toward the bathroom. On your way, you check to make sure the kids are starting to show some signs of life. You smile and began humming when you hear them ready to start the adventure of a new day. You head to the sparkling bathroom. There's a nice clean smell in the air. You take a nice hot shower and heads for the kitchen.
The kitchen is clean. You are greeted by the smell of freshly brewed coffee. You have 15 minutes to sit and drink your coffee and prepare today's game plan.
Just as you complete your morning routine, the kids come piling in to get breakfast. You and the children laugh and eat together. 20 minutes later, you all grab their stuff and head off to buses and cars.
You stroll into the office – enthusiastically greeting people with a smile. You grab another cup of coffee and sit down with your "to do" list. When the phone rings, you answer it with that big smile in your voice – which makes your boss on the other end smile. It feels good to promote someone like this.
Rather an amazing difference, wouldn't you agree?
You can start everyday positively. All it costs you is a little discipline and some preparation.
You can have more control of your life –
All it really is – is habits.
Taking control of your life can be as simple as 15 minutes of preparation the night before. Imagine, you can be in control of your household and your life with such a small thing. A little bit of effort on your part can work miracles. It's amazing!
But changing habits can be hard –
How long have you been doing the same things out of habit, without even thinking about it? You have to get into good habits, and that takes time and practice. In time, your new auto-pilot settings will take over and you'll hardly even think about it.
Real Change Doesn't Happen in a Weekend
You want lasting positive change – not a positive rah-rah session that leaves you pumped for a couple of days before you crash again.
The truth is, it takes practice, everyday until it becomes a natural part of you. You can't become a master of anything without first learning how, and then practicing. That's the whole truth. There are no magical instant solutions. But that doesn't mean that it has to be hard.
There are so many benefits and changes that you will experience that I couldn't possibly tell you about it on one page. We work on every area of your life, not just positive thinking. You will work on practical application in your everyday life. No hocus pocus. No judgement. You have to experience it for yourself.
How do you make this miraculous change?
With a Whole Life Overhaul. Here are just some of the things we will work on -
Attitude Adjustment – we will work on reawakening your dreams, your gratitude list, and your big why so you have a renewed vision and purpose for what you want to accomplish.
Time Chunking – You're going to practice making the best use of small chunks of time. The best thing about this module is that we're going to use something you need to do anyway as the vehicle for the lesson. You're going to clean the house while you learn. Pretty sneaky, right?
Successful Planning – One thing all successful people have is a plan. You will learn planning through exercises in daily planning, menu planning, inventory tracking, and money saving.
You'll grow your esteem as you learn to -
deal with difficult and negative people so they don't rub off on you,
gain cooperation at home and at work so you can diffuse all that festering resentment,
focus on what you need to accomplish,
get good ideas on how to get the job done better and faster,
listen to your inner voice – it has a lot to say if you'll listen,
think through problems and find solutions,
you'll learn why self care and relaxation are essential to success, (Relaxation is built into the course, and required!)
plan and make healthy meals that will give you the health and energy you need to live a full and happy life.
and so much more!
And the biggest payoffs are
- the respect and admiration that you get from family, friends, and neighbors who are so jealous of the great life you have,
- and your family will be closer than ever before.
How exactly does all this work?
This isn't like the other self-improvement courses that end up sitting on your shelf. You're not going to get away with that here! I will be hard on you. Know that going into it. There is nothing else quite like this anywhere that I know of. Its kind of a new mix of self-improvement and life coaching, delivered by email so it stays affordable.
Whole Life Overhaul is an email course that feeds you just a little bit more everyday so you're not so overwhelmed. You're more likely to actually do the work and get some real results.
You will immediately receive your course introduction fully explaining more about the course and how it works. Then – starting next Monday – you will receive your weekly lesson package. It will contain all of your lessons in high quality PDF, and all of your daily planners for the week.
Every morning – starting next Monday, you will receive an exercise in your email box. The course runs Monday thru Sunday. This one has been a technology nightmare, but we've pulled it off! You will always be reminded to do your lesson for the day. Just make sure the emails can get through to you and you're good to go!
One little thing at a time. Not a big book that's going to sit on the shelf collecting dust.
Just a simple exercise every day.
Imagine you are learning to swim. You can read a book, but will you really learn how to swim? No! You have to get good at treading water, then floating, then a strong kick, and then advanced technique that will have you cutting through the water smoothly and quickly. The trainer can teach you and help you, but you have to get in the water and do it. You get better in time.
That's how you get good at anything
You learn the skill. You apply and practice the skill until you master it. And it helps to have someone to hold you accountable.
You're not alone anymore!
When you send in your weekly report – I give you feedback and answer any questions you have. If you ever need any help or extra encouragement, or just a friend – I'm just an email away. I stay involved every step of the way. As a matter of fact, I want you to give me your deepest darkest sh*t. The stuff that is really stopping you from being all you can be. The stuff you keep hidden because you think people will judge you. Its just you and me. Lay it on! I want to help you break through it.
You're stepping into the light…
After working everyday on developing new habits, time management and organizational skills, your life will look totally different. The simple daily lessons will become a part of your life. Each lesson is fairly simple and only takes a little time. The turn around comes with the daily application. A little thing everyday makes for big changes down the road.
What's the old saying? How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!
By this time next year, you'll be amazed at how much your life has changed – just by applying these simple daily lessons. There is truly nothing else like it anywhere. We work on all areas of your life. Not like most self improvement courses that tell you if you just think positive your life will miraculously change.
Baloney. Positive thinking won't clean the house, or make dinner, or deal with a problem teenager, or a problem employee, or help you find an extra hour a day to work on your goals, or even help you get organized enough to set reachable goals. A positive attitude will help… but it's only a small part of the solution.
We're going to leave no stone unturned. A full frontal attack. A Whole Life Overhaul! A whole new set of life skills. Yes, you'll be more positive. And, more productive, healthier, and more self confident. Instead of dreaming, you'll be doing.
You'll be a better person, a better parent, and possibly a candidate for promotion, or ready to start your own business. People will admire what a together person you are!
You will change more in 6 months than you ever thought possible.
You'll make constant daily improvements, because small daily improvements create compounded changes that most people would never dream of. Every day, in every way, you'll get better and better.
By now I'm sure that you're a little worried about how much an intensive course like this must cost. Relax. It's not that bad. Almost anyone can afford $47 a month – but during this reopening, its even less than that.
Yes You Can
I am a single mom & business owner. My house is clean – I get ribbed about it all the time. I am thin – a size 3 at 57 years old. I'm rarely sick. I have more energy than my 22 year old daughter. I've dug out from some of the deapest pits you can imagine – sick parent and grandparents, sick child, alcoholic, drug addicted abusive spouses, lost career, bankruptcy – been there, done that. And I'm still here to tell about it. I've authored a few ebooks, and I run a couple websites. I'm looking out my office window – looking out over the lake and thinking how lucky I am. And I've never taken Prozac or any of that stuff. So don't think for a minute that you can't do it.
So, Let's get to work. But Only If You Really Really want –
* More control of your life
* More free time
* Better health
* More energy
* Lose Weight
* Cleaner – calmer home
* More focus on your goals
* Better relationships
* Better organizational skills
* Belief in yourself
* Pass on good habits to your kids
Could this finally be the year that you get it all together? Could it?
Change your programming and you'll change your world.
Start your Whole Life Overhaul. There's no excuse left. Its inexpensive. The lessons are simple and enjoyable, and if you don't like it – you can quit anytime. The only obligation is to yourself.
You know you are better than the life you've been living. You know that you deserve better. Your family deserves better.
Make a committment to yourself today to make your life amazing
What Others Are Saying
I do want to thank you for being a little hard on me. It makes me feel like you really care about what you are doing with this program and helping people like me who really need it. It also makes me realize I need to work harder and pull myself out of my comfort zone and be aware of the changes that need to be permanent.
Thank you Carole!
For whatever reasons I am more motivated and am DOING!
It's amazing how your course is making me think about things like exercise and eating right and doing things besides working every single day. It's very motivating.
All the best,
This course has helped me to focus more in the last several months than my whole life and the insights that I've gained is invaluable. God bless you.
I am excited about the future as with this program's help, I know I will grow to new heights.
I started a new job, bought business cards (really cute ones), less crankey, a clean, organized house. I noticed that I am smiling more.
I will recommend this program to all of my friends, who ask where the change in me came from.
Some of the ideas in the recent Lessons I have already learned. All of them are right on, and very valuable. I was just thinking the other day, they should make this course mandatory for everyone BEFORE they have a baby. They should have these skills in place before the damage is done. I know that isn't realistic, but, if they "got it" it would sure save some emotional damage to the children, and maybe even some marriages. It's great!
This material is excellent, and I really look forward to the next one. I have not found a single scrap that I disagreed with. I am so curious about what will be coming in the future!
I think the topics that are being addressed are very pertinent to anyone attempting to make a solid and lasting change in their lives. I believe, as many self-development experts that I have read have stated, that the only real change occurs when you change the little things that you do – the habits of being. I also believe that real change can occur only when you have a mindfulness of what you are doing all day. It appears to me that you are addressing these very issues with the course. I will work harder to stay current with the work.
I find myself looking forward to finding out what each day's focus will be – the daily nature of the correspondence, I believe, fosters the mindfulness I mentioned. Overall, I'm very impressed with the course so far!

It's so important to develop goals and plans that will bring you freedom from your struggles. We can all do it, if we want it badly enough. I also want to say that your course, Whole Life Overhaul, is a great way to free yourself from whatever is holding you back. It's helped me gain a lot of personal insight and develop new perspectives on things.
Thanks for all the motivation you provide in your ezine We all need it! I also love the tips you give.

P.S. The prices are a market test. As more and more people take advantage of the personalized feedback, we may be forced to raise prices, or close down enrollment. Don't put it off and chance being disappointed.
One last thought – I know we've been led to believe that we should aspire to do as little as possible. As we saw in the example of Anita's life, the consequences are not so good. Are you happy? Fulfilled? Is it time to take action and change things?
