The age old question is "can people change?" Can a person really decide to transform their life and then go about reinventing themselves? The answer is YES. So why do so many people seem to try and fail at making positive life changes? It all has to do with knowing where to start.

Transformation of a person starts on the inside and if successful it will begin to show on the outside. 

In this post I’m going to share my own story as it relates to the changes I’ve experienced from being on this transformation journey. You’ll also hear from Debbie Ruston and Paul Wheeler who have applied the same techniques with equally impressive results.

This is an insiders view highlighting the difference between simply reading a personal development book, and approaching your growth with a clear path of application in order to really transform your life significantly.

I began my journey of personal growth when I was 19 years old. I was going through a particularly rough time and a friend of mine gave me a gift - my very first personal development book - The Celestine Prophecy. I read it cover-to-cover and when I got to the end I went right back to the front and read it over again. That was it. I was hooked. 

I began spending every spare cent on personal development books. This journey began at a time when there was often too much month at the end of the money so I would purchase my books from second hand stores. I cherished them and took pride in my growing library. 

I began to see my life transform. There were instances where I could absolutely attribute  the things that I was creating to the growth I was experiencing through my new found knowledge. I still remember where I was sitting when I realized that EVERYTHING I had created, both the good and the bad situations, were as a result of me. My thoughts, actions or lack there of. It was frightening and invigorating all at the same time. 

Fast-forward 13 years on my PD journey and I found myself in a worse financial position than when I’d started down this blasted path. Where was I going wrong? 

Then my path crossed with Shane Krider (my now husband) and I learned through his training programs some very simple techniques on how to APPLY what I was learning from my PD journey in my life. Far out. What a revelation! It changed my approach to personal growth from that point forward. Incidentally, my results in every area of life also started to shift very quickly. 

I asked a couple of other students of the Prosperity of Life courses to share of their experiences first hand. Here’s what Debbie Ruston had to share:


“My biggest obstacle was myself, but through perseverance and working on me, I’ve managed to completely transform my life! The single biggest factor that’s contributed to my success has been the personal development courses I’ve done. The 17 Day program, The Beyond Freedom Evolution created by Prosperity Of Life have played a critical role.

Before starting my journey here I worked in corporate America for 20 years. It was a complete shock when one day I got the dreaded tap on the shoulder. I didn’t see it coming and for a while it took the wind out of me. Although in hindsight it was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I found this business and have never looked back.

The past 12 months have been incredible. I’ve travelled the world and my business has come with me. I've spent time in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Bali & Thailand. Bali was my main base and just a wonderful foundation to build the business. It’s been one big adventure.


The best aspect about all of this is the lifestyle that I have created. Thanks to this business I’ve managed to exponentially exceed what I used to earn in corporate and I’ve done it working just part time hours in just the most incredible destinations around the world! I pinch myself at how my life is now."

“For me it really began in 2007. A friend of mine had witnessed me go through a significant decline. I became quite shut down, resentful and depressed. Alison (my now wife) said to me that if I went to the doctors I would probably be diagnosed with depression. I had let life experiences really get to me.

That friend wanted me to do a personal development workshop so I went to a free intro session and decided to do it. I gained a lot from those courses realizing
 that I am doing this to me so what the hell am I doing?  

That gave me the kick-start to continue my own development. The only trouble I had was, as good as those courses were, I walked away with a ton of information and no idea of how to use it.

I continued with the next thing that showed up because I knew that this was the way to improve my life, to improve my attitude, to improve me.

Just before my daughter was born I was determined to take a higher level of control. I was ready and willing to create my life the way I wanted it to be.  

That's when I discovered Prosperity of Life and Beyond Freedom Evolution. This was the first program that was structured in a way that I could actually implement desired changes in 

my life. This is the difference maker. This is not just a “go away and do a workshop, get all pumped up and come back to your life” scenario. This is a step-by-step process for anyone who wants to transform their life. Period. So I did”.
