Maxwell Maltz said, "You will never outperform your own self-image." Out of fear we avoid or evade the realities of our entanglements. We rather remain in denial, lying to ourselves fearing the perceptions of the dire consequences associated with confronting them. But the consequences are immeasurable because of avoiding the very things that we must learn or discover about ourselves.

Testimonial from a 20/20 for 2022 Coaching Client:

The 20/20 for 2022 Coaching program was powerful for me moving forward into this new year! I am embarking on a new journey of becoming a published author. Before this coaching, I lacked a specific breakdown of goals and clarity to move forward toward achieving my number one focus of 2022, which is to become a first-time published author. Vince Morales helped me develop a strategic plan to move forward with a clear vision. I came out of this with renewed hope and excitement for what lies ahead! I now have a step-by-step plan and a clear vision. Thank You so much, Vince Morales, for assisting me in moving forward clearly and concisely! My dream of becoming a published author is within my reach and I am so excited! - Joy Schrock, Author
