As Tony browsed the shelves in the B Dalton Bookstore in Westland Mall, Florida, he knew he wanted something to help him gain a more positive outlook on life.


All those years ago, he chose an audio self-help program that would change his life. The program was a guided meditation audio by Bob Griswold from Effective Learning Systems. “I was looking for something to help me be a better person and to have a healthy outlook on life,” begins Tony. “So I selected the tape on how to be positive.”


When asked how it impacted on his life, Tony says, “Prior to listening to the tapes, I feel I was more of an introvert. But now, after many years of listening to many of the Effective Learning programs, I feel my personality has altered to more of an outgoing, social type of person.”


One of the unexpected changes was the effect on those closest to Tony. Not only did they see changes in him, the programs also helped them gain confidence and a positive outlook.

“Most of all, I enjoy sharing the tapes with my wife and children and seeing them grow into more positive and self-confident people.” “I always recommend the programs to my friend’s family and anyone that wants to make improvements in their life. I love them. There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t listen to the program. I’m very thankful for my positive outlook on life.”

Jenny lives in Florida and works in social services.


“I used to be afraid of life,” she begins. “Now I embrace it.” Jenny explains where her fear originated. “I had some very difficult experiences in early life and young adulthood which created problems with my and confidence. At college, I was afraid to speak up in class.

My fear was holding me back so I looked for something to help me.” Jenny came across Effective Learning Systems at a Barnes and Noble store. “I began using the programs almost twenty years ago and noticed a difference in my behavior within a few weeks,” she shares.


“I’ve been able to overcome almost all of my negative “programming” and negative self-talk. I was even able to give a presentation about the benefits of guided imagery and self-hypnosis to 150 people. This from a woman who couldn’t speak up in class.”
