“David handed me a copy of ‘Master the Power of Your Attitudes’ (MPOYA) just over a year ago. This was a time when my attitudes were largely unquestioned, deeply entrenched and often unhealthy. As I worked through MPOYA, I was encouraged to scrutinise these attitudes, often in excruciating detail. It was a lengthy and confronting process; but this should not deter you. After all, rewiring the habits of the mind is no easy undertaking.
If you decide to embark on the journey that is MPOYA, you should not do so without full commitment. Every page has a purpose that, when properly realised, culminates in something very unique: a fresh outlook on life.
I sincerely hope that anyone who reads this testimonial gains as much as I did from this terrific resource.
Good luck on your journey.”
Lennox Saint - Private Client, 2019
