What is GreatMasters?
At GreatMasters, realizing your gift means two things: reducing the pain of your adversity and increasing the joy of your aspiration. Our premise to changing dysfunctional behaviors and persistent harmful habits is simple. Think about this quote, attributed to Albert Einstein: “doing the same thing repeatedly, and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.” We offer a more sane approach by changing your unconscious mindset from “no way” to “why not.” We begin by lowering the energy around your hurt, like the mindless repetition of deficit or loss which floods your mind. This will allow you to reframe your expectations to what is truly within your grasp. Our approach does not target a specific disorder (ex. health, finances, relationship) for attention but seeks to improve your general sense of well being by reducing internal blocks. The key to change that sticks and stays is self-regulation. We teach you to work with your “subjectivities” or inner dynamism. The key to self-regulation is the personal cultivation of two bedrock qualities. We teach you how to be magnanimous and optimistic in spite of any adversity. Our three step process acclimates you to learn to live with grace under pressure. The GM Plunge is the hinge to our 4-2-10 internal makeover: a 4 minute per day tonic to increase your confidence to change, a 2 week orientation to the “3 Keys” of lasting change, and a 10 week program to be the change you seek. Here’s our promise to you. If you are sincere about making changes that have long eluded you and can commit to the 4 – 2 – 10 challenge, we will companion with you to that painful internal place, littered with memories of broken promises to yourself, and help you claim the light within that is truly yours.
