Tennyson's Ulysses refused to settle for a life of mediocrity. He chose instead to live his life to the fullest, "to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." If you want to be free from self-doubt and self-sabotage so that you too can fulfill your goals, The Self-Worth Odyssey is ideal for your personal odyssey.

People who are plagued by self-doubt and self-sabotage are rarely able, in spite of their abilities and sincere effort, to fulfill their goals. Their confidence, concentration and plans for success are repeatedly undermined by their second guessing and subsequent performance anxiety. The Self-Worth Odyssey gives you the written and recorded tools to effectively resolve your doubts and your tendency to self-sabotage. It also gives you the tools to proactively focus on the achievement of your goals.

Dr. Cochrane's new self-help program includes a 270-page book and 13 recorded imagery activities. These gentle yet powerful activities were recorded on three compact discs so you can fully experience their true value as you progress through each stage of your journey to the fulfillment of your goals. These professionally proven tools make it possible for you to effectively address the self-limiting influences from your past and turn your full attention to living your life the way you want to live it.

To achieve success and fulfillment in your life, you may have felt like two people in one body. One unquestionably wants to be successful. The other, for reasons that are out of your awareness, repeatedly sabotages your best efforts to succeed.

The written and recorded tools in The Self-Worth Odyssey, make it possible for you to get to know reality as it is perceived by your self-saboteur. This part of you will not go away on its own...but the change concepts, imagery activities and case illustrations available to you in The Self-Worth Odyssey, allow you to respond to your saboteur in a manner that will free you so at long last, you can become the successful and fulfilled person that you have longed to be.
