1. Clear your mind of anxiety and other unwanted emotions with the Dexxtra Technique.

2. Imagine the way you would like to be with the Screening Room Technique.

3. Become Calm, Centered and Connected with the 3C's mindful meditation.

4. Create courage and strength with this declaration: "I Can! I Do! I Will!"

5. Install healthy self-esteem, declaring "Victory to me!" To become your inner coach instead of your inner critic.
