The Power to Create Yourself

The Power to Create Yourself

The Power to Create Yourself shares the most effective ways to reach your end goal. Through realizing the truth and lies behind our limitations and boundaries, we can all learn what it means to truly create ourselves and manifest our potential. Ross is not a doctor or scholar with a stack of degrees. Rather, he’s a regular guy who had his life stolen by drugs and was left to figure out a way to get from points A to B at the age of thirty. Ten years later he’s still a “boots on the ground” guy, sharing the strategies, beliefs and attitudes that led him to not only sobriety, but personal success. Ross, along with guests ranging from entrepreneurs to spiritual gurus, covers things like the importance of knowing what you stand for vs. what you don’t, seeking the true essence of your character and busting through road blocks, both real and perceived. The show also discusses the facilities and programs that exist to treat addiction, and how to reap the greatest benefits.
