It's the most powerful program period. I mean it transcends just pick up it's...really even for products like even personal development it goes so far beyond even what other people have done, because I've a lot of seminars and I can just tell you: this goes to the essence in a way that NOTHING else ever has and I've done A LOT of programs, I won't name names but this is so far beyond what people are used to it's...it opens up whole new levels of thinking. It's also very valuable for women too, which I don't think most people appreciate, I mean the context is success with women but also really very core issues. It's unbelievable.
What I learned is that behind my ego there is something far greater and that just by tapping into that and being who I really am meant to be, and I really am the deepest level, is just by letting go of all this programming that I have, I can really be...I can really have the success I deserve just by simply taking right action and have the success with women or any other area of my life. So it's a product that really transcends...genre so to speak. I learned that.
Well, for example, they gave some specific exercises for getting unstifled because I know one thing is often I have trouble getting into state and they'll be very useful in all kinds of environment because oftentimes I find myself getting very stifled and I will access very creative states and are some very specific things...and also just the awareness. I mean I took EXTREMELY thorough notes, I took what...probably 350 pages notes and I can access that and really see things I've forgotten about and it just gives me a different perspective. And also just carrying the energy with me. And you know, even watching streaming videos you get some of that, you get that energy and you can understand...also Tyler's level of passion is total commitment to this, I mean he just came so through. Just a wonderful experience and you know, you get to relive that and really experience some of that by buying the product.
