Within you is the potential to live a much fuller life, one where you wake up every morning enthusiastic about the day ahead and throw yourself into everything you do—not because you have to, but because you want to. Each moment in this new life is filled with a sense of purpose.

You are fully capable of having this life, but a powerful inner enemy prevents you from embracing this reality, making each day seem drab and repetitive. When you can’t stand the tedium any longer, it creates false substitutes for real life, excites you with momentary pleasures or dramas that leave you feeling emptier, and convinces you to avoid life’s demands as they pile up and become overwhelming.

Phil Stutz and Barry Michels, coauthors of The Tools, call this enemy “Part X.” As psychotherapists with 60 years of combined experience, they have helped thousands of patients defeat it. In this workshop, learn to overthrow Part X and live the way you were meant to—overflowing with love, joy, and creativity.
