You have the potential to live a much fuller life—one where the impossible becomes possible. But a powerful inner enemy prevents you from embracing this potential, robbing you of true pleasure, destroying your relationships, and stealing any sense of hope.
Phil Stutz, MD, creator of The Tools®, call this enemy Part X. As a psychotherapist with more than 32 years of experience, he has worked with thousands of patients to see through Part X and defeat it.
You will learn how to:
- Identify your own Part X and what to do once you discover it
- Use The Tools—quick, simple practices that can be done in under a minute—to address common stumbling blocks like avoidance, anger, negative thinking, compulsive behavior, and victimhood
- Take immediate action to get yourself out of whatever hole you’re in, no matter how many times you fall in
- Tap into and stay connected with your life force, the key to becoming the person you’re meant to be.
As you practice using The Tools, you will begin to notice you recover more quickly from defeat. And each time you do, you discover a higher world where forces like truth, beauty, and goodness help you conquer your inner enemy and unleash your full potential—a life overflowing with love, joy, and creativity.
