Will you be better this year? Here’s how to make 2014 better than 2013.

Go to the mirror right now and say: “Things will change when I change. Not when the people and things around me change. But when I change.”

There. You said it. Now all you have to do is do it.

That is a lot harder. But if all those years of things not changing have taught us anything when it comes to being healthy, wealthy, happy and wise, it’s that the only barrier to growth is — ourselves.

For over a decade, Karim H. Ismail has developed a program that gives you the Framework, Attitude, Skills and Tools to keep your promises to yourself, make the changes in work and life you really want, and create the health and fitness you’ll need to face the next decades with confidence. As he says: “There’s tremendous, limitless opportunity to expand and deepen our lives. The only barrier to growth is us.”

Over three full days at the end of April 2014, a small group will gather for an intensive, relaxing and highly fulfilling time at the 5-star Memories Grand Bahama Resort in Freeport, Bahamas. Please view the program brochure here.

After this initial program, you can join the one-year Success Blueprint Program whose structure and accountability will give you new clarity and confidence to achieve your goals easily and effectively. The program overview is here: http://blueprint-programs.com/overview.

Our three-day program in the sun fosters mental, physical, spiritual and emotional breakthroughs, at work as well as in your personal and family life. Plus enjoy a relaxing, reflecting, all inclusive 4 days at no extra cost.

It will bring you much closer to answering three of your life’s most important questions: “Who am I?” “What do I really want out of life?” and “What is my path to get there?”

What the program guarantees:

  1. You’ll learn in a practical, hands-on way, how to get to your ideal health, wellness, fitness and energy.
  2. You’ll have clarity in answering big, long-term questions like “Where will I be in 3, 5, 10 or 20 years?”
  3. You’ll learn a proven method to set, measure and achieve your goals for your health, work and future.
  4. You’ll learn an easy way to conquer and eliminate your fears.
  5. You’ll create your unique Success Blueprint that gives you real control over your health, work and future.
  6. You’ll master how to plan your days, weeks and months, while leaving time to manage the unexpected.
  7. You’ll become adept at sustaining the changes you begin to make – where most people have huge difficulty and often fall back on old patterns.

Participant feedback

“I am a veteran of self-development programs. I would rate this program in the top 5% of all the self-development programs ever created. I have achieved a level of peace and satisfaction that I never could have imagined, including moving to a new job and much improved health.” M.S.

“I was able to achieve key goals I set for myself: travelling around the world; heightened focus on health and wellness; improved finances; fresh perspective on my business. Over the year, I learned to start taking chances and calculated risks; understood the need for prioritizing and better scheduling my life for more balance; decided to let go of perfection but rather, strive for excellence; and put myself “out there” without fear of rejection.” T.K.

“When I started the Program, my life was chaotic. I lacked focus, priorities and planning. I emerged with clarity. It’s an honour to be called by major newspapers as an expert so soon after I kick-started my wellness practice. I have been able to help hundreds of people achieve much improved wellness. This program is the best investment I have ever made in myself.” D.D.

“I look only to myself for validation. I have a spring in my step; am transitioning to a new, more fulfilling career in keeping with my life purpose and 20 year goals; am making travel plans again. And I have regained the confidence to start dating again.” F .J.

“Over my 20 year career as a lawyer, the slow gain of a pound or two a year finally caught up with me. As I approached my mid 40′s, I wanted better health and more energy. With the program’s coaching and nutritional guidance, I handily exceeded my goals. My weight loss totalled 80 lbs, my cardiovascular risk was reduced and my fitness level is now above average for my age group.” P.F.
