Positive Thinking Will NEVER Change Your Life, But This Book Will!

“This book should be read by every person who has ever achieved authentic success and by those who yearn to know the real way there. Whatever you think you know about positive thinking and how it fits into a life of masterful accomplishment, David Essel, in his book, “Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life”, boldly flings open a hidden door of wisdom—a different perspective on the ‘positive’ that is the keystone to living our greatest self… ”

Love, Relationships and Marriage

David offers marriage and family counseling as well as spiritual growth counseling sessions.

I learned more about love in eight weeks with David regarding soul mates, than in 15 years of studying the most popular books and lecture programs. After David helped me shatter the illusions about love, six months later I found love with my best friend and we’ve been married for eight years.

David is absolutely phenomenal in relationship counseling.

Bernadette G. ~Florida

My husband and I came to David, while my husband was in the middle of an affair. This was the third counselor we had seen to try to save the marriage. David’s work is so unique, so different, that within 12 months of really hard introspection and work, following David’s written exercises, we reclaimed our love! Now nine years later, Our marriage is stronger, and we are deeper in love than ever before. He is the best.

Teresa and Daniel~Northeast

I started seeing David by myself as I had a traumatic domestic episode that ripped my home apart. After a few months of going to David’s sessions, doing my homework and practicing the techniques, I was able to form a respectful parenting relationship with my husband during our separation.

My husband began to see David too, because he saw the positive results in me. After staying true to what we were learning, we made the decision to try to make things work and we began to see David together as a couple.

We have been together for over 2 years since. Our relationship now is better than it ever was. We use caring words, disagree with love and consciously practice what we learned from David to stay together for a lifetime!”

“David has changed my life! He guided me through my emotions to break away from an addiction to alcohol and I am over 2 years sober. Next, he helped me change my beliefs around money and walk through my uncomfortable fears and blocks. I now have greater income and a financial partnership with my significant other. I know that none of this would be possible without David’s amazing coaching!
