Take control of your destiny with REBT & CBT, empower your mind, get unstuck, overcome worry, anxiety & feeling unworthy | taught by Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Master Your Mindset with REBT!  

  • Do you have goals and dreams but feel like there’s always an obstacle standing in your way?   
  • Do you ever feel torn between doing what you really want and doing what you believe you “should” do?   
  • Do you ever experience social anxiety or worrying about what others will think?   
  • Do you ever feel overwhelmed with stress, worry, and fear of uncertainty?
  • Do you beat yourself up for your mistakes or flaws or suffer from feelings of guilt, shame, or unworthiness?   
  • Are you tired of feeling unfulfilled and wish you were happier in your everyday life?  

If you can relate to any of these things, you are not alone.   


Nothing feels worst than not living up to your potential… especially if you want it deeply but it feel like life keeps getting in your way.  


This course isn’t about how to force the world or other people to meet your needs and support your mission in life. That will never work. This course is about showing you how to TAKE BACK YOUR POWER and finally feel in control of your destiny!   


The truth that you were probably never told is that you are the owner of the most powerful machine on the planet—the human mind—and that means you have a super power! You have the ability to feel happiness, no matter what is happening around you. You have the ability to learn and change ANYTHING you want about yourself. You have the ability to create the life you truly want, yes, even if right now it seems impossible.   


You’ve just never been taught how to use this power!   


This course is like a human mind owner’s manual!  


It teaches you how your mind works, including the #1 most important thing you could ever understand about yourself, which is that your thoughts are what create your emotions.   


That’s right, even thought it seems like the situations or people around you are causing you to feel a certain way, the truth is that it is what you THINK about it that causes your emotion.   


Knowing this puts the power in your hands because through this course you can learn how to CHOOSE YOUR THOUGHTS, and by doing so you can control your emotions.   


So, here’s the bad news… this superpower you have, this human mind, it’s flawed. Your thinking has the power to transform your life! But, without training, the human mind is extremely IRRATIONAL.   


In our brain’s quest to interpret our world and keep us safe it misinterprets what’s happening, it makes false judgments, and it demands unreasonable things from ourselves, others, and life. Plus, after years of living around dysfunctional people we pick up their faulty belief systems.   


And that’s why this course is so important! Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy is the foundation of modern psychology. The insights and techniques of REBT have unlocked human potential in the last century and are what ultimately differentiates those who are successful from those who are not.   


REBT will teach you how to rewire those faulty belief systems and stop sabotaging yourself with irrational thinking. It won’t just teach you how to use positive thinking to feel better in the moment, it will teach you how to identify the root cause of your emotional pain and rip it out!   


REBT will teach you how to avoid the ultimate form of failure, which is to achieve success in your life but still feel unfulfilled.

Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Joeel and Natalie Rivera are professional speakers, trainers, and coaches. Their mission is to provide tools that empower people to ignite their dreams,  unleash their potential and fulfill their purpose. Through their  company, Transformation Services, Inc., they provide digital content  publishing, online courses, and life coach training programs that act as  a catalyst for personal empowerment. Joeel  is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling  and Education and is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D.  in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. Using the science of  psychology and human potential, they train leading edge entrepreneurs,  leaders, life coaches, and individuals how to master the power of their  mind and create their destiny.They  are serial entrepreneurs who challenge and inspire others to take their  power back through self-employment as INDIEpreneurs, (self-employed  freedom junkies). Between the two of them, they’ve started over a dozen  businesses, from photography to a non-profit teen coaching center, and  from an import business to a holistic virtual office. They  became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they fully transitioned their print  magazine into digital format because they found they could reach an  exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost. They  closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person  workshops and speeches into information products and online courses. Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go  “all-in” when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Unable to leave  the house, they continued reach and inspire their market by creating 50  online courses in only 2 years, including digitizing their popular life  coach training programs and certifications. Today, they have served 300,000+ students from 195 countries.
