What do REALLY successful people do every day?

So, what are the secrets of really successful people? What do those who make a lot of money, have awesome bodies, loving relationships, or a deep connection with God, do daily that we don't?

There has to be a secret right? Maybe some type of magical system? Or are they in general just lucky, or genetically gifted?

Listen to this 5 minute radio segment, at the link below, to see, just what the secret to success, really is.

Now, are you finally ready to be successful too?

Affirmations: Change the way, you use them

Affirmations have been around forever, and now, today, is the day we need to start changing the way we use them. Why? Because, they simply do not work.

Like 12 step work, or training in the gym, times change and so much the way we approach everything in life.

Affirmations are also part of the tool base, in personal growth, that have actually begun to hold people back, especially those who use them the way most of us do.

On this video, we share the new, effective way to use affirmations.

Enjoy, shift, change.

1 0n 1 Addiction Recovery: Success, right now.

Of the millions of people who are currently struggling with addictions, to food, alcohol, drugs, smoking, sex, spending and more, the way out may be to simply begin, a holistic 1 on 1 program that treats the full person, not just a part of them.

People need 1 on 1 education, support and motivation. They need someone who can answer their individual questions, privately, immediately, to help them get on track to living a healthy, productive life. Free, of guilt and shame.

Watch this brief video to see why so many people are recovering, 1 on 1 with an addiction recovery professional.

Yes, help is available right now, in a 1 on 1 private, confidential program, to finally help you break the addictive cycle.

Men: take control of Prostatitis, naturally.

This is a topic, prostatitis, that men do not want to discuss. It can be very painful, uncomfortable, embarrassing and for many a very difficult condition to take care of.

Yet, there are many natural steps you can take regarding supplements and more that can greatly ease, if not fully erase, the side effects of this inflammation of the prostate gland.

We recommend many of these steps on this brief video.

The most powerful supplements that I have discovered, such as Prosta Q, quercitin, Bp Q max, and others, really can make a huge difference in men suffering from this condition in just a few weeks or months.

Become an active healer in your recovery.

Why are we afraid of the elderly? Admit it, we are.

Many of us in the USA are so afraid of talking with , helping or even associating with the elderly, because we are afraid of them. Because we do not have the strength to know, that one day we too will become more and more dependent upon others.

We do not want to face our own mortality, so we have no patience for the seniors, we become irritated with their slowness.

And because of all of this, we mistreat them. And it sucks. And it is dead wrong.

I am just like you, so I know what I am writing about.

Now, watch what I learned about the elderly on this short video.

Decide to change, or we will reap what we sow. Yes, one day we will be left alone, mistreated, forgotten about as well.

How to attract MONEY, for personal growth work.

One of the most common excuses people use , that blocks them from growing personally, is the statement, "I'd love to go to this personal growth workshop, or hire a coach or consultant, a financial adviser, a social media coach etc., but I don't have the MONEY to do this!"

At first, you might say, "But maybe they don't have the money, maybe what they are saying is real."

And you are right, their thoughts are REAL to them, but they are not true.

Anyone can learn how to attract money to use for their personal growth goals, if they could just get out of their own way, let go of their old limiting beliefs, that at this moment are holding them back.

Enjoy this short video to see what I mean.

How am I so sure, that anyone can learn how to attract, create the money they want to be able to afford the professional help they desire? Because millions of people have already done this in the past.

Millions of people before us, who had no money, have already found a way to acquire it, so that they can get the help needed to become more successful, more calm, or free of an addiction, or whatever else theirs goals might encompass.

And if they can do it, so can you.

But like anything else that holds a great reward in life, we must be willing to get humble, get real, get vulnerable, and do whatever is uncomfortable in order to make it happen. We need a plan, and then we need to follow it through.

Yes, you can have, what you desire.

Quit Smoking Now: the Holistic Way,

Many people who try to quit smoking fail over and over, and eventually give up, yet if they were following a holistic program, they could be smoke free today.

Will power will never be enough. The patch or gum will never be enough.

Quitting for good must encompass both physical and emotional recovery, based on holistic principles.

Enjoy the video as we give you an idea of what that means.

You or a friend could become a non smoker in a very short period of time if you just had the correct system to follow. we can give you that.

Can you be successful, in Network Marketing?

Recently, a client asked me this very question, is it possible for ANYONE to be successful in Network Marketing?

Yes, there is a lot of hype in this type of business.

Yes, there are a lot of people who will mislead you.

And, yes, if you have what it takes, you can be successful. with a little luck too.

There is a huge desire in our country to make it big in business, to be financially independent, to be free of financial concerns for the rest of our lives.

Does this sound like you?

And many people with these desires, find their way into the world of network marketing, hoping that this will be their "Holy Grail", their ticket out of financial insecurity, and into the financial security they've always dreamed of.

The world of network marketing has exploded over the past 25 years, to include more products and services than we could ever dreamed of. And, yes, the opportunity is there for anyone to reach some pretty amazing goals in life if they put the right effort and time into this type of industry.

Unfortunately, too many have been mislead, by well intentioned people I'm sure, into thinking that while this is a business, that the do not have to follow basic business rules in order to be successful.

Enjoy this short video to see what I mean.

If you want to be successful in the world of network marketing, create a powerful business plan, with the help of a seasoned , success professional, and then follow it daily.

Work, and it shall be given to you.

Love, David

Trying to understand, the Mystery of Death

A few years ago, while leading a funeral service for a very good friend of mine, I was asked to explain the mystery of death, the purpose of death. I think the answer to this question is a difficult one to fully know, even if you have walked in this profession for years and years.

I have looked to my mentors, my elders, to the teachings of those who have walked before me to try and decipher the answers to this question.

On this short video, we begin the quest, for some of the answers.

Sending you, and your loved ones, blessings.

Are we using too many excuses in life?

A woman sat in front of me explaining that it is never her "intention" to let her husband down.

Are we, as a nation, making too many excuses in life, instead of being responsible for our own growth?

Many of us want to lean on excuses, as a way to rationalize behavior that needs to be changed.

Enjoy the short video here to see what I mean.

Slow down, and use today as a day of change, to get more out of life.

Miami:A city of addictions, alcoholism, and recovery

I love the city of Miami, and specifically South Beach where we have our office for addiction recovery, and the more time I spend there the more I see the prevalence of high levels of addiction and alcoholism.

Some of the reasons for the high rates of addiction, as explained in this short video, are also the reasons that many are drawn to this beautiful city. As a matter of fact, we decided to open our second practice there because it has an incredible energy that attracts an eclectic, artistic and business minded group of inhabitants.

Here are some thoughts to consider on this video:

Let's slow down, and look for new options for recovery, if you live in Miami.

We are happy to be a part of the solution.

Contact us if we can help in any way at all.

Addiction Recovery Workshop: Aug. 13, SW Florida

New Holistic Addiction Recovery Training
Helps Professionals and Family Caretakers
(Link to course video embedded below)
(Fort Myers, FL) – August 2, 2011 – Professionals and family caretakers now have a chance to learn a new approach to recovery treatment. David Essel, a Holistic Addiction Recovery Coach, has developed an approach to help people achieve radical recovery treatment. Like many parents, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, spouses and life coaches, Essel was frustrated with the lack of success with much of the current addiction recovery model. He formulated a method to enable professionals and caregivers to offer an alternative chance to help clients and loved ones who seek treatment.
Essel will lead The Holistic Addiction Recovery Certification workshop will be held on August 13th and 14th. The program offers a new and proactive approach which is gaining acceptance and momentum across the U.S.
Most of us are aware that millions of people struggle with addictions across the U.S., with various therapies reporting recovery success. However, according to statistics, the average addiction recovery program in America offers a low 10% or fewer success rate of patient treatment results beyond the first year. Successful treatment, therefore, must produce considerable improvement beyond the early stage of remission.
Randy, a client of Essel’s Holistic Addiction Recovery Program, recalls when his life was spinning out of control. Financially at rock bottom, addicted to using drugs and alcohol for more than 38 years, he found himself in the middle of a divorce, obsessed and dependent on prescription medications. This forced him to make the decision to seek alternative professional help. Frustrated with traditional approaches, Randy decided to utilize the services of Essel’s program.
During his 30-day program, Randy pushed through the realities of his life struggles, unmasked his shame, and made discoveries that he never envisioned he could do. Most importantly, he changed his inner self, to affect his outer life.
Essel said, “The traditional model of recovery must improve client recovery by focusing on ways to increase the probability of recovery. Each program is customized because I am working with their individual issues. We use traditional and holistic modalities in order to address the root cause of the addictive behavioral issues.” Essel finds that his clients are able to remain committed to their customized program to re-establish new ways of being and living, releasing their old patterns of addictive behavior.
Essel’s Holistic Addiction Recovery Coaching Certification Program is based on traditional and non-traditional addiction recovery methods. His goal is to share this knowledge and practical methods with addiction recovery professionals, as well as friends and family care takers for those seeking recovery assistance. The program has given new hope and successfully helped addiction recovery clients achieve lasting change.
Essel’s informational video reviews how he takes the best of all recovery programs, and combines them into his certification workshop. Watch it on YouTube, here
The program includes life coaching, nutritional adjustments and supplementation, exercise, behavioral change techniques, accountability procedures, aftercare implementation and journaling. Additional focus on a holistic lifestyle change approach includes components such as an association to a spiritual path, meditation, prayer, acupuncture, aromatherapy, emotional recovery, forgiveness activities, and healing of addiction causes by family, environment and peer relationships.
Detailed program pre-requisites for Essel’s program are found at The next session of Holistic Addiction Recovery Level 1 will be held August 13th and 14th, from noon to 6pm each day. Training will take place at Fitness on the Move, 13010 Metro Pkwy, in Fort Myers. To register, call 941-266-7676. The $850 registration fee includes manual, Essel’s meditation audio CD and Spirituality audio CD. Participants must complete home study assignments within 30-days of completing the in class program in order to receive their certificate. For details about the program, please visit
David Essel is a Master Life, Business and Addiction Recovery Coach and All Faiths Minister. He is the author of “Slow Down: The Fastest Way to Get Everything You Want” (Hay House) and “Heaven On Earth: God Speaks Through The Heart of A Young Monk (Living Now)”. His professional coaching programs reach clients in the U.S. and internationally. He offers Life Coach Certification programs and other seminars, with offices in Fort Myers and Miami Florida.

We can be TOTALLY free of addictions or cravings!

Share this message, as the truth is, if one works a fully holistic addiction recovery program, they can be forever free of addictions and cravings. Forever free!

Unfortunately , too many recovery programs try to teach us that once an addict, alcoholic, etc, we will always be that. BULLCRAP!

That we will always have cravings, that we are always close to using again. Bullcrap!

Watch this short video to see what I mean.

There is freedom, lifelong freedom, if we choose to look for it.

Essel to offer sermon and workshop Sunday July 31

The Center For Spiritual Living in Naples will host, Hay House author and All Faiths Minister David Essel, on Sunday, July 31st. Essel will present “Spiritual Freedom, creating a deeper connection with the Divine, that works for you!”

Through his spiritual journey, professional coaching practice and lecture tours, Essel has helped many people around the country and abroad find their personal path toward spiritual enlightenment. He advocates being open to different teachings in order to allow one’s experiential learning and understanding to expand. In fact, it may just one to lead to inner peace and profound wisdom.

As an All Faiths Minister, Essel has presided at different spiritual communities including Catholic Churches, Unity and Religious Science Churches, Centers for Spiritual Living, as well as All Faith Churches and other independent spiritual centers.

Essel said, “I’ve come to know, that all of our paths starts from a call within. Each of us starts to have a feeling or perhaps some type of knowing that there is something larger than one’s self. I refer to this as The Call. It may begin as a whisper, or perhaps a life experience, which causes us to focus our attention to the voice within. We start there and when we are quiet receptive, more will unfold. The Call may lead us to seek something we know or are familiar with, like a church, synagogue or spiritual center community. Or it may lead us to seek something unfamiliar such as the practice of yoga, meditation, an ancient teaching or an experiential connection with nature. Our job is to be open. Because it may not make sense at first, but the sages have agreed, that this Call from within beats stronger until it is satisfied. And our gift, once we choose to accept and follow, is more than we may have ever considered possible.”

Essel advocates the use of Spiritual Freedom in order to fulfill the call from within to affect our everyday lives. He said, “A spiritual life goes beyond being still. It asks us to be present to every moments, experiences and interactions. It is a raise in self-awareness, then community awareness. The more we expand, the greater the responsibility and the greater the rewards, because ultimately we seek greater and deeper connection with every being on the planet, raising our awareness to the Oneness of all Life. There is a purpose for the Journey. I won’t give away the surprise, and it’s easier than many make it out to be.”

To learn more about spiritual freedom, join the community at the Center for Spiritual Living in Naples, located in the Journey Arts Building, at 2950 Immokalee Road, Unit #4, just east of Airport-Pulling Road on July 31st. A quiet meditation begins at 10AM, followed by the 10:30 AM Sunday Celebration.

Following the Sunday Celebration, Essel will present “The One Thing - How to achieve more freedom, love and success than you ever imagined possible!” This 2-hour workshop offers strategies to achieve the lifestyle many people desire. David is known for his inspirational, motivational and action-oriented presentations. Participants are guaranteed to walk away with the information and knowledge to make positive lifestyle changes quickly and easily. Reservations are recommended. The workshop registration is $25 per person.
