Do you have a vision for your life but just can’t seem to make it happen? You can be the person you want to be, but there’s a catch. Your dreams don’t fulfill themselves, you have to fight for them. The fight is against the habits with which you sabotage yourself: anxiety, self-indulgence, insecurity, procrastination, and more. In each episode of the Coming Alive podcast, psychotherapists Barry Michels and Phil Stutz help you identify something that holds you back and arm you with actionable weapons to break free of it. They also talk to top Hollywood creatives and others who use these techniques to transform their lives. Armed with The Tools®, your life will blossom into everything it’s meant to be.
