brand_youThe Power of Letting Go

John Purkiss

Most of us try to get what we want in life by controlling people and situations – which usually doesn’t work very well. The Power of Letting Go takes the opposite approach, which allows everything to happen more easily. Letting go will bring you better health, happier relationships, more creativity and greater prosperity – all without the stress of trying to control everything.

  • Work hard, but aren’t getting where you want to be
  • Find your old success formula has stopped working
  • Want to develop more intuition, creativity or empathy
  • Want to thrive regardless of changes in technology, the economy or politics
  • Have learned mindfulness/meditation, and want to go further
  • Have tried to meditate without success
  • Would like a lot less stress and a lot more happiness and fulfilment.
