I’ve always been the youngest person doing whatever I was doing.  I was just 16 when I graduated high school.  I was working on Wall Street as a securities analyst at 22.  I was an Assistant Vice President of a financial firm listed on the New York Stock Exchange at the age of 24.  And I already had articles published in Fortune and was an editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal by 26.

Then one day I woke up and discovered I was 73.  Instead of being the youngest person doing what I was doing, I was suddenly one of the oldest.  There is only one person older than me in the Transformational Leadership Council, a group of transformational leaders who meet twice a year.  And I am the oldest among all my friends.

Where did the time go?

What I’ve accomplished

I am proud and grateful for all that I have accomplished in my lifetime, especially my incredible 30-year marriage to my wife Shelly and the two girls we raised together to be independent spirits, each of whom is proud of who she is.  And I am really proud of creating The Lefkoe Method (TLM), which has helped almost 100,000 people eliminate at least one limiting belief, enabling them to enjoy life more and experience themselves as the creator of their lives.

I cherish the relationship I have with those of you who have written me and I am inspired by all the changes you have created in your lives.  On days when I don’t feel like going to work, all I need to do is read a note from one of you telling me how TLM helped you shed some “baggage” and enjoy your life more and I can’t wait to get back to work.

But now at 73 a question is popping up almost daily: Now what?  What should I do with the rest of my life?  I have been thinking about that question for the past six months or so and I still don’t have a good answer.

For over 26 years my vision was very clear: To significantly improve the quality of life in the world by having people recreate their lives and live as the unlimited possibilities they are.

My vision made me important

For a while I “needed” to do that.  Right after I developed the Lefkoe Belief Process (LBP) having that as my vision is what made me an important person, a person better than other people.  “Look what I’m doing with my life!” But as I eliminated a bunch of negative self-esteem beliefs and realized I was okay the way I was and that I didn’t need to do anything to be okay; my vision became a choice—a game I decided to play —rather than a survival strategy, something I needed to do to prove I was worthwhile.

But in the past year or so I have started to realize I no longer have “forever” to do what I want to do and I’ve started asking myself: What is the best way to spend the rest of my life?  What is the greatest contribution I can make in the time I have left?

Let me tell you some of my thoughts and then I would like to hear from you.  What do you think?  What could I do that would make the biggest difference in your life?

Projects worth undertaking

Here are a few projects that seem to be worth completing:

1.  For people who are visual, who know reality because they can “see” it, the Lefkoe Belief Process (LBP) works about 98% of the time.  For people who are emotionally kinesthetic, who never “saw” their belief in the world but who ”felt” it, beliefs sometimes come back once or even twice.  The effectiveness rate with such people is over 90%.  I want to figure out how to make the LBP more effective for emotionally kinesthetic people.

2.  The Lefkoe Occurring Process (LOP) seems to make more of a difference in people’s lives than anything I’ve done in 26 years.  It gives people the ability to create their experience of life moment by moment.  The many testimonials we’ve received from people who have taken the Lefkoe Occurring Courses go beyond anything we have received in 26 years—and we’ve had thousands of people tell us the TLM has provided relief that nothing else they had ever done had provided.  The problem is it takes me ten weeks of my time working personally with only 20 people to produce the incredible value the LOP provides.  For people who can afford it, it is the single best thing they can do to make a profound difference in their lives.  For people who can’t afford it, it’s useless.  Right now the only way I am able to produce the results this course provides is to personally coach each of the 20 people each week.  My goal is to find a way to put this course into a DVD product that I can sell for a price anyone can afford.

3.  We just completed a two-year research study conducted by a major university that proved that our Natural Confidence DVD product significantly reduces stress, which means it can help anyone with an illness that is at least partially caused by  stress—which is most of them.  The study will be published soon in a peer-reviewed psychological journal.  In order for psychologists and governmental officials to take TLM seriously, we need a lot more research that validates our experience with almost 100,00 people over the past 26 years.  I am convinced we could help returning soldiers with PTSD, relieve depression, stop most anxiety, and free people from almost all the day-to-day problems that affect most people on earth. We need to prove that with independent scientific studies.

4.  Most of all, I want to reach far more than the 100,000 or so people we’ve helped so far.  I am truly grateful that my associates and I have been able to help each and every one of these people.  But there are hundreds of millions of people throughout the world who lack confidence, who constantly worry about what others think of them, who procrastinate, whose relationships are characterized by constant bickering and dissatisfaction, who fear rejection, and whose beliefs and conditionings sabotage their ability to have sufficient income and wealth so that money is no longer an issue in their lives.  I’m not satisfied with reaching only about a hundred additional people every day.  I no longer have 30 or 40 years to play this game.  I need to find a way to break out of the box and reach hundreds of thousands in the next year or so and then grow geometrically from there.

If you are on my mailing list, you’ve probably eliminated at least one belief and have personally experienced the power of my work.  If you’ve purchased one of our products like Natural Confidence or worked with one of our Certified Lefkoe Method Facilitators in phone or Skype sessions, you’ve seen a lifelong problem disappear in a matter of hours and never return.  So you have a good sense of the impact my work can have in the world.

I guess the bottom-line question I’m trying to answer is: What legacy do I want to leave the world?


What do you think I should be focusing on?  Where should I be devoting the bulk of my time for the next few years?  What could I do that would make the biggest difference to YOU?  And do you have any suggestions on how I can make TLM available to millions of people?

Please post your answer below.  I might not be able to respond to every post, but I do promise to read and seriously consider each one of them.

If you haven’t yet eliminated at least one of your limiting self-esteem beliefs using the Lefkoe Belief Process, go to htp://www.recreateyourlife.com/free where you can eliminate one negative belief free.

    Hi Morty,

    Since the first time I experienced this process, I’ve thought it would be valuable (if not essential) for people to learn how to do the processes (yes, all of them including occurring, conditioning, etc.) on their own with no outside help needed (no coaches, DVD’s, etc). In fact, that’s exactly what I’m trying to do now (I’m getting pretty good too).

    Believe me, if I had the money I’d work with a facilitator all day long and be the first one signed up for any of your courses. Your methods work like gangbusters and may be the only thing “out there” that does work. I just can’t afford it right now so I’ve been practicing the steps on myself. I think if more people could/would be self-sufficient with the methods we could make rapid progress.

    Morty thank you for your wonderful program. It has been very helpful yet there seems to be something missing and I wonder if you could address the areas of unworthiness due to breaking rules and being labeled as BAD. We are all told not to do certain things ( or are expected to do certain things ) when we are young. When we fail to live up to the expectations of others we are labeled BAD. This creates for me an underlying feeling that I am bad and the punishment associated with this action is thinking the people I have offended will leave me. I have done all the 19 beliefs and 4 conditioning s and this is still a sensitive area for me. Am I missing something? where would your suggest I start? I did notice a definite increase in my confidence level after finishing your program but this area of being BAD probably has many beliefs associated with it and this might be something that a lot of people have in common

      Hi Francis,

      You probably still have a few more beliefs, including possibly, I am bad.

      We could help you identify and eliminate the remaining beliefs in a couple of sessions. We have helped people using phone and Skype sessions in over 60 countries around the world.

      For more information, please call us at (415) 506-4472. We’d love to help you.

    Hi Morty,

    Why don’t you make a movie out of it? A great movie about the Lefkoe Method. If the movie is good it could reach millions of people. Also you should do more courses to train more Lefkoe Facilitators. I personally would be very interested on doing that.

      Hi Juan,

      One of these days someone will want to make a movie. That would be great.

      We are in the process of creating an on-line training that we should be announcing in the next couple of months. We’ll let you know.

      Thanks for your interest in our work.

    I am not sure if it still makes sense to answer, but I really think it is important to spread this work as obviously our “occurences” cause quite a lot of havoc in life. I have been suffering for most of my life and had no idea, why, and all of sudden, in a few hours, it is just gone, I live in the same house with the same people and it is all different. If I had known this as a child, I wouldn’t have had to waste years on therapy and all this crap.
    I am absolutely sure that it is possible to find a business concept that assures that Morty gets paid and people still get the knowledge on a larger scale. There is affiliate programs, there should be translations (German please, they really need it) and a set of programs from cheap to advanced price level for “war heads in high positions :-)”. I think it is important that the low price products help people transform in a way that they can improve their finances and that they motivate them to spread the word, so they would be able to may be take a course for becoming a trainer. I don’t believe that people don*t value cheap programs, I always did and without them I would probably be dead by now. People value what works and my experience is that the really good self-help “gurus” put out good stuff for little money as this gets people to really honour and value them also later-on. It shows that they care and that they don*t need to cheat for money. I find that most convincing. But I also feel it is not necessary to “push it”. If there could be a bulletproof training for people to continue this work and an organization that keeps their hand on the quality, that’s loads. You can watch it grow from your porch, or later on from cloud number 7 :-).

    Hey as a response to the last two guys, I couldn’t disagree more…

    Andrew, you think that in your scenario of billions of people were quickly and easily able to rid themselves of negative beliefs that it wouldn’t make a difference in the world? Are you sure?

    I don’t believe that Morty’s post was about creating shangri la, he believes in his product, he believes that it really helps people, he and his team talk to thousands and thousands of people who say that they have negative beliefs, he receives a huge amount of feedback to say that what he shared has changed their life… tell me, what’s wrong with wanting to spread that word, provide that service and reach as many people as possible?

    Jesus and Buddha? They didn’t force people to change, they had a message and people have the free will to choose to follow that message or not… Anyone can have a message that does good, personal choice and action is what takes that message and turns it into something. Don’t infer that they were ineffectual and shouldn’t have bothered just because people choose to go their own way…

    In terms of Morty’s message, he’s sharing a technique that he believes will change peoples lives… if they try it and it doesn’t, what’s lost? Nothing. If it does change their lives, that’s great for them…

    Finally, the we are all one, nobody needs anyone’s help, we should sit back and realise everything is perfect is delusional. There’s a lot of problems in the world and I believe people have a duty to help others where they can…


    The point of giving the programs away free is a direct response to Morty’s question as to how he can get his method to reach a far greater audience and nothing else. If he asked how do I make millions, people would have advised that he target the elite of the world and start charging thirty grand for treatment and so on…

    It’s nothing to do with being cheap, it’s about how to disseminate information so that it’s easily accessible to all.. rich and poor. Also, there are plenty of ways to build add ons and monetise a business whilst giving away your main product, it just needs thinking through.

    That’s all


  8. Mickey March 22, 2011 at 10:10 am - Reply

    Wow. Its amusing to see so many people telling Morty to give away the products to everyone for free instead of paying for it.

    I will definitely be the happiest person in the world if all those kids in Africa eat 3 times a day and be healthy. I will be happy if all those poor people get free medicines. And so on. But you know what?These things are not happening as I( and so does many) expected.Its because of money.

    Everything costs money. Even if Morty is rich, there might still be some employees working under him and he needs to pay for their services. I wonder what it will be like applying the analogy many expect here: “jeez, this microsoft guy made$5c billion and yet he asking us to pay for his software”… lol

    The point is this: Don’t be so cheap. We spend one heck of money on lots of junk but not on something to improve ourselves.

    And Morty, I hope I will buy your product(s) in near future (I still live with my parents and still not independent)

    Hi Morty,

    I’ve read your blog and a lot of the replies and hey I’ll be blunt.

    Haven’t you read anything you’ve written?

    Why leave a legacy and to whom? What is a legacy and who will it be given to? You already have a legacy in your writings and courses. If they are good they’ll live on and if not they’ll fade into obscurity. Hey, that’s life get over it, really. If you leave a totally free DVD that is given to every school child all over the world and it reaches billions of people, yes Billions, then what will it really achieve?

    Did the work of Jesus or the Buddha transform the world into utopia or shangri-la? Nope. Will yours?

    Here’s what you can do with the rest of your life….

    Be honest with yourself and say “Geeez, I’m good. I can sit back and do absolutely nothing (or fall off my perch today) and I’ve had a fantastic and fulfilling life.”
    Realise that we are all one. If you assume that I am weak and need your help then you are saying to yourself that “life” is not good.

    Life is good. Go and enjoy it for yourself. Lead by example.

    If your past is any indication you’ll do that by putting out a helping hand. Do it because you want to, not because you need to or want to leave a “legacy”. The only way you can leave a legacy is if we are all separate and “your” personal touch is needed to help the “others”.

    Have fun (and thanks). :)

    Hi Morty,

    You did a lot, if you do nothing – you are fine. We both know you did not need to do anything from the very beginning … you chose so.

    Yes, indeed, to widespread your methods is the best thing you can do, and I will not repeat what was said. This is the first thing.

    But you can do more, Morty!

    The second thing – you can establish a right center that will provide stability of your heritage and bring it to life not behind your figure by in front of it. Lefkoe Institute already exists, but, up untill now, it is you, Morty, who is the acting figure, the center and the keeper of the methods. You can let the Institute to become a face and an alive basis of your heritage. While you are around – you can help the Institute to become a basis of the future life. (You want this heritage to be alive, right? We both know that death is an illusion. So, help it become alive and independent!) Think of it this way:
    Morty Lefkoe is not only a person but it is a trade mark as well. Split them.

    You can also think whether the Institute is the right basis for your – freely spreading – knowledge. May be it is, I don;t know. It may be that the Institute is a good structure while you are around in body and might not be a good structure otherwise. This may turn on purely practical considerations. Do you want licensing procedure for the blessed instructors? May be you want a clergy protection for them. I just through considerations around. Do you want to setup a certification program as a reasonable barrier of entry? Will this center be directed by the ownership or by a council? What do you want your family to own (if anything)? Bottom line, the third thing is to establish the right structure for the core.

    The forth thing is to take care of the instructors. Funny thing – their income and status is not affected at all by widespread of the method. If anything – it will be enhanced. There will always be an appreciation for the experience, trust, and confidence. That said, the instructors have to establish their functioning in a different way then now. They have to come out of your shadow. This process requires wisdom – and, so, you should rather do it.

    You may write a book. It will not replace anything but you will have control over every word you say. Writing a book is hard. I would strongly suggest using help of both – senior instructors as well as ghost writers. This is not a personal challenge that you have to take upon yourself. You just get it out in most practical way. You may end up just copying together whatever you have handy including sample transcripts of various sessions. You may or may not end up making it into a nice book. Whatever it is – it s way better then papers in your drawer.

    You may think of making your site perpetual. In order to run, it will incur ongoing costs. You may setup a membership program with annual fee just to make sure site is running on its own.

    Lastly, most importantly, the hardest – SEE IT BECOMING ALIVE!
    This is all of the above: set a structure, establish alive core (people, instructors), release what you turned into methods into the world – and everything unforeseen.

    I am not saying it will be fun or rewarding. It may be. It might not be. Who knows. But how else can you let it live on its own. Chances are it will be – everything, if it is alive. Who but you can see it through and have wisdom not to read meaning into whatever is happening, but just see it getting off on its own. It will have no limits. Let it be.

    Morty, thank you for being among us; thank you being alive, open, compassionate being.

    I have a question. 

    A few people have mentioned using the methods on friends, family and colleagues to good effect.

    What’s your view here Morty? Are you concerned that people might not utilise your method correctly? There doesn’t seem to be much control here

    What would your opinion be of someone in the psychotherapy world using your methods as part of their therapy tools without formal training?

    It’s a way to spread the word and help more people but are you concerned about misuse or misrepresentation?

    (I love that Blake commented here and thanks to Blake and her sister for letting their mom use their stories–the parenting course is wonderful!)


    I don’t have any suggestions about how to clone yourself to reach more people, but I do have a suggestion on how you might inform your process to adapt it to those for whom visual representations are ineffective.

    John Kappas, founder of Hypnosis Motivation Institute, developed two separate methods of hypnotic induction because he discovered that traditional inductive methods didn’t work for a significant subset of people. His “physical/emotional” paradigm would roughly correspond to your “visual/kinesthetic” dilemma.

    As someone in the minority “emotional”group, his work was an eye-opener. I am also someone for whom the Lefkoe (NC) process was hit and miss. (Mostly, hit though :)) For the most part direct, visual communication is going to bounce right off me. When I noodle around with my own belief elimination process, the “see” question shows up for me along the lines of “Doesn’t it seem like all the evidence points to…..as being real or true?”

    Anyway, Kappas’s “E&P” book is a more pleasant read, but for your purposes you might find his hypnotism manual more helpful.

    So grateful for yours and your wife’s work,

    first of all, you have already done a wonderful thing for so many of us by not just developing this process, but also sharing it with the rest of us. My wife and I really needed the DM process in order to best move forward with our lives.
    I know there are millions and millions of struggling people out there, and I understand your desire to reach them all and alleviate suffering here on this suffering planet. On the other hand you have already done a mighty work by reaching as many as you have.
    For me personally the best thing you could do would be to make it possible for me to not have to travel to you in order to get the complete training. What I would need most from you is the ability to find the limiting beliefs that people have who come to me for help. I understand the DM process, but as you know, it’s only helpful when you are good at finding the beliefs behind the problems people have.
    What I’m basically saying is, multiply yourself as much as possible. There are many of us out there who would like to be helping others better than we already are, but we need your knowledge in order to do it. Personally I don’t see the possibility of travelling to you to get this information (I live in Germany).

    Dear Morty,
    Congratulations on a life well lived!
    As a past and present course participant, I am also a big fan! Your programs produce amazing results! I would certainly like to help spread the message.
    I also agree a natural next step could be to train / certify others to teach your process. I know I would enjoy being certified in your process. And, has already been mentioned, other trainers would help to spread your message.
    LEFKOE certified trainers could be booked through a central site / agency. I do not believe it is fair or reasonable to expect anyone to give away their work or intellectual property for free. A central booking site / manager / agency could ensure you receive appropriate commission and royalties from print materials and CDs, DVDs, etc. Trainers would sign a contract and log in to report commissions. Passwords could be assigned to trainers to download materials from a central site, providing some control over distribution and use. There are also software programs to assign individual download ‘keys’ which could also allow for control and distribution of products. Affiliate programs for course graduates might also help to spread the word. If affiliation is limited only to those who complete programs, the recommendations are more credible.
    As someone who leans towards the kinaesthetic, I would find it beneficial to have questions that allow me to connect to the ‘feeling’ parts of beliefs. For example, when you ask “as if can you SEE them saying … ” , what about some wording along the lines of … how do you feel when you think you see or hear …..? Where are these feelings in your body? Followed by ….can you still feel you are not worthy in your body? etc. I will leave the wording to you as the expert. (P.S. I’ve long suspected there are many more kinaesthetic than visual learners studying psychology. Just a hunch based on the idea that kinaesthetic learners are generally more interested in feelings.)
    Have you considered a program specifically for seniors who have lived with their beliefs a long time and are struggling with a world that doesn’t match much of what they were brought up to believe is true. I suspect there is a lot of fear as a result of not knowing where to turn, what to believe and who to follow.You could definitely be that go-to guy.
    May I suggest a program around perception and/or critical thinking, which I think is a good fit with your current programs, and is desperately needed in the world today. One wonderful resource is Thomas Kida’s book “Don’t Believe Everything You Think” the subtitle is “The 6 Basic Mistakes We Make in Thinking”

    When I need inspiration around what to do next, I read “The Creative Age, Awakening Human Potential in the Second Half of Life”. It is an inspiring book, filled with countless stories of people who have accomplished some of their best work in their senior years. Have you read it? I think there are answers here for many of us in our twilight years. It certainly dispels a lot of myths around aging and accomplishment.

    Morty, once again I can’t thank you enough for your programs! They have had a profound effect on my thinking and life. I am truly grateful.

        I still haven’t found a substitute for the weekly comments I make on people’s assignments. That is the main way the Occurring material is taught. I could teach others how to do what I do, but I don’t think a DVD with just the information would be sufficient.

        ANd there isn’t enough backlog of interest yet to have more than enough courses for me to teach. I did three last year and plan to do four this year. ANd I have to do a lot of work to fill each with 20 people.

        Thanks for taking the time to comment.

          I agree with u about that DVD. I was thinking more about the structure of that worldwide Lefkoe Institute. Interesting would be to teach each participant in the course also how to pass the course further to others. People seem to like to spread the idea to their friends as I’m reading the LOP course blog.

          As for as the demand, it seems to me like the value of the course is not properly communicated (understood by people). If people knew what results can they expect from it they would be interested a lot more, deducting from the results of people in the ongoing course. How many of participants have asked for money back guarantee? Or in other words, if you asked each person if the course was worth the money, how many of them would say “I’d pay double the price without a blink of an eye for the value I’ve received” ( … or more :) .)

    Hello Morty,
    I read your book “Re-create your life” & LBP method was revolution for me, I also was able to help friend of mine using Skype. Thank you for all that.

    Here is what I would do, if I were you:
    I would learn about Zeitgeist movement (www.thezeitgeistmovement.com) by watching Zeitgeist (first part); Zeitgeist Addendum (second part); Zeitgeist Moving forward (third part). All these can be found on Youtube. These documentaries show what is really happening in the world & also show what solution could be. Why would you watch all this? You don’t know what you don’t know. There are reasons why we still don’t have cure for cancer or why we will never know if Global Warming is true or false?

    Zeitgeist movement support Venus Project (Life-long work of Jacque Fresco), however Jacque & many others in the movement think that environment shapes people behaviour. He doesn’t know that it’s our interpretations about the environment & ourselves what really makes a difference. Zeitgeist documentaries were watched by over 50 millions of people & http://www.thezeitgeistmovement.com has about 500 000 members all over the world.

    LBP could help people to open up to new possibilities, rather than thinking that nothing can be done about the way we live. “In a world where 34000 children die every single day from poverty and preventable diseases, one thing is clear: something is very wrong”

    I am really bothered that even in your later years you only think how your knowledge and expertise can be sold. If you really want to help millions of people, you need to get out there for them, not lure them in with some boring marketing strategy. I’m sure you’ve accumulated enough money so far. If you don’t think so, then you have a negative belief right there.
    Think of a way to generate videos to remove thousands of beliefs. I would start with a bundle of believes related to love, creativity, having enough, gratitude everything gratitude inducing. Make it so people can help other people around them. If you do it right, millions will praise you. If you keep selling your knowledge like you do now, it will seem that you’re more interested in money. Set your knowledge free.

    Create a plan for the domination of a new vision. A vision of a creative society. We have to stop draining energy from each other. We dont need that. We have to focus on the act of offering.
    You have done a great job till now. I think the next step for helping humanity is to challenge the central ideology. Its main source. People with political and economic power.
    Hollywood producers for instance are people that are benefited from injecting people with a dose of negative beliefs. Not only them. Politicians do the same thing and almost every form of power in the Western World tries to rule by lying to people. Giving them fear of an outsider so they stay united, giving them jealousy of their neighbor so they produce more.. The time to replace this way of governing with another has come. I think we’ll all be better if we were driven to national unity through love and not fear, and to excessive production through love for the neighbor and not jealousy.

    Dear Morty,

    Let me add one vote for the “leverage your knowledge” suggestions.

    And let me add one for the “make it available in other languages” suggestions.

    I would be happy to help with both in Central Europe, living in Hungary.

    Dear Morty,

    I have twice attempted to eliminate the belief, “Mistakes and failure are bad.” While I see that it is gone with respect to what I learned in childhood, I think I need to run through it again on some adult experiences that reinforced the belief. That said, I believe that it is a process that can really help people, and I thank you for making some of the information available for free.

    Here are my thoughts: I’d suggest you make it easier to purchase the DVDs. For instance, why is this blog not on the same website from which the DVDs can be purchased? I just went to the Lefkoe Institute website, which is where I had thought the DVDs could be purchased (I’d found them somewhere previously), but I can’t seem to find them there now. Now, I’ve googled, and I can’t seem to find the DVDs anywhere, though I’m sure they’re available somewhere. (Maybe I’m missing something obvious, but I’m usually very good at finding resources on the Internet, so I suspect if I’m looking for these and can’t find them, they are not as easily accessible as they should be if you want the whole world to learn this system.) So, my suggestion is to hire someone to redesign your website(s) and hire someone to assist you with social media marketing. These are not my area of expertise, but I bet some relatively inexpensive marketing support would make a huge difference.

    I wish you all the best. Thank you.

    There are many courses out there similiar to what you are teaching. Could you not get together with them

    Some courses go further and deeper than yours, some can reach the cellular level which is extraordinarily beneficial if anyone has the courage to go for that. We store feelings in our body at the cellular level which are obviously buried very deep. Sometime we can think we have busted our beliefs, but there can still be many deeper hidden beliefs which are attached to feelings, and it these which can sustain certain problems and issues.
    I have made contact with feelings at the ancestral level and have been able to see ancestral patters I have been carrying. It`s almost like looking at your DNA and being able to read it. Amazing stuff.

    I think as humanity progresses, if it does, the we will awaken more and more and we will see more, which can mean that anything learn`t today won`t be obsolete, but might have to be revised or dropped altogether if it proves to be based on our ego formation and the lies it tells itself.

    Best wishes

    I have been one of your most ardent fans and have learned and practiced the Lefkoe Method through many sessions with Shelly, the online Natural Confidence Course and your Occurring Course. When I first discovered you and your process, you were training and certifying others to become Lefkoe Method practitioners. Your goal was to teach others how to do the process so they could 1) do it for themselves and 2) help others learn and practice it.

    What are the results from the work of those you have already trained? Was it an easy transition for them or were there major obstacles to their becoming successful practitioners? How many existing counselors, psychologist, and other mental health practitioners have learned the process and are incorporating it in their therapy?

    Hopefully, all who had done the process can now do it for themselves. What would it take to turn the 100,000 into trainers who can spread the process?

    These are just more questions – for me, I would need answers to these questions to make any suggested actions.

    You are one of my heroes. Thank you for making such a difference in the world.

    In order to get your work out to as many people as possible, you may want to leverage your efforts. That is, ride on someone else’s coattails

    o Examine Mark Joyner’s Simpleology (http://www.simpleology.com) He as many courses that are similar to the neighbourhood that TLM is in. If you reproduced NC as a Simpleology Course, you could gain much exposure, help people, and they could do the course on-line whenever they need it.

    o Could you develop the free belief elimination exercise as a free iOS/Android app? If people could see and eliminate a belief on a mobile platform, they wouldn’t have to be tied to the computer to do so, (for example, what if you need to climb a mountain or go to your favourite lake/thinking spot to ‘ponder yourself’. If you take your mobile device along, this makes it easier to do the method.

    o Examine Stuart Lichtman’s site http://www.howtobeagreatcoach.com and the ebook he sells as well at http://www.anything-fast.com. This gentleman teaches a technique he calls Cybernetic Transposition. It is a process that allows you to dialogue with your Conscious, Subconscious, and Emotive minds as wells as your Mid-Brain. The idea is that when all 4 parts of your mind are in agreement, the goals you go for happen faster, because all parts of you are in agreement.

    The benefit to you Morty, is that he has trained people to teach his method as effectively as he can. Perhaps he could help you do the same with your method?

    Just some thoughts.

    The fact is, what you yourself can achieve is finite. You need to be training people to take over from you and do what you do–a lot of people, and really in-depth. THAT is how this will spread far beyond the 100,000 people you’ve touched so far.

    As they often say in network marketing, which is worth more–100% of one person’s efforts, or 1% of 100 or more peoples’ effort?

    At 63 myself, I understand your dilemma. My answer would be to look to the future. As a Native American, we have a saying that relates to looking ahead 7 generations. To do this I think you could take all your projects (which are all worthy) and set them up so you can delegate getting them done. There may be one you want to do yourself. Look to training people to continue your work when you are no longer able to. You, personally, only have to train ONE person in each method, then they can train others. You can set up businesses or foundations, whatever you want, to do this.

    You have given great value to the world as you grew through your life. Maybe now it’s time to give it UP to the world. Meaning that maybe you should not be thinking along the lines of ‘me’, that is, doing it all yourself ( I hear a little perfectionism in there). Think in terms of what is best for the whole. To me, if I were you, that would mean getting my messages out to the most people possible and that you can not do alone. Your legacy could be one or more companies or foundations that continue to teach your methods and bear your name.
    Just think of 7 generations from now people still saying “I learned the LEFKOE __________ . That guy was a genius!”

    Tha ms Morty, understand that it would need careful considerations…

    I think there’d still be a Market for one on one coaching, plus you could charge a premium for others to train in the method and they could pay a license for using the brand or a percentage of what they charge to counsel others…. Tricky to manage but worth considering.

    Be interested to see how this pans out. Keep us informed.

    And giving away free to committed individuals would then you could encourage people to publicise it via their blogs, Facebook, Twitter, work magazines, community groups, churches etc

    People would be a lot more willing to publicise something that required commitment and not money and people would be more willing to read something that didn’t feel like a sales pitch.

    While I’m thinking outloud, as we’re in the social networking world why not get a programmer to create a Facebook app which takes people through the process of TLM? You could use animation to make it more accessible. Wouldn’t cost too much and you already have a network on sites to start with.


  29. James March 10, 2011 at 1:42 pm - Reply


    Admit you have a point about valuing something that is paid for. I agreed with the point when it was raised earlier.

    I honestly believe that a model like EFT would get the method out to a far greater audience. But you make a good point that what’s the value of greater knowledge for many if the application isn’t great.

    Someone above advised giving away free in return for a commitment to carry out the training and use it. I’m not convinced that it would be viable or even desirable to manage video responses.

    Perhaps there’s another way to gauge commitment which would be to release different aspects in stages as was mentioned. For a nominal fee Morty could releas programs in stages, at the end of each stage the commitment could be to fill out an online survey to then release the next stage or program. Set up of this would be minimal and the survey could be another great way of canvassing for opinion and feedback through a mixture of choose answers and free format text. Only those who fill out the survey and demonstrate they have benefitted from it could move to the next stage.

    Another component could be a requirement to make recommendations to friends via provision of email/Facebook/whatever details… Kind of a refer a friend approach. To avoid the perception as spam the person could have to write a personal message to prompt their online friends to get involved.

    With regard to getting into schools, I disagree, if you give kids the tools at an early age then they’re much more likely to become ingrained in their behaviour as part of HOW they think about forming beliefs and CHOOSING their interpretation… I think delivered well this could be dynamite

    Not convinced about the information products. Us Brits are fairly cynical so this might not represent everyone’s view but information products smell of salesmanship and scams… They’re niche and feel low quality to me. Just my opinion.

    So, Morty, I hope we’re helping you here and not insulting you by suggesting you give away the method you’ve worked hard to refine!


    • Morty Lefkoe March 10, 2011 at 1:49 pm - Reply

      Hi James,

      No, I’m not insulted. I am open to making the NC product available for free at some point in the future if we could find a way to cover the lost income from doing that. The income from that product pays salaries and a lot of business expenses. ANd there actually would be a cost to distributing NC free.

      So it isn’t a crazy idea, but a lot of problems have to be worked out before it became a viable plan.

      Thanks for all your suggestions. I really appreciate them.

      Love, Morty

    I vote NO to giving more information away. Thomas Paine put it best: “That which we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly.” If a person has no “skin in the game”, s/he is much less likely to use any product.

    Morty, I suggest you think of distributing your writings as an INFORMATION PRODUCTS business. Study successful information products businesses, such as Agora Publishing. You might need to hire a successful copywriter, or even a consultant with a proven track record in selling information products to help you get TLM and your other products more widely distributed.

    Yes, I agree that “teaching TLM in schools” would get the word out to many people. But how many people would USE this information? By comparison, convincing people of the value of this information and getting them to PAY for it would get the information into fewer hands…but the people who pay for it are MUCH more likely to use it, and use it successfully.

    I love the idea of “training the trainers” and setting up a business that will run successfully after Morty can’t run it. But that needs money. My suggestion is, again, to set up an information products business as a starting point to keep TLM in the public eye.

    Finally, a slightly different take: I’m convinced the world will be better off the longer Morty is able to think and speak and write about human potential and performance. Morty, I’d suggest you visit the website of Al Sears, M.D. (alsearsmd [dot] com). His ideas about staying young as long as possible are worth following. Look into his nutritional supplements, especially TA-65. (No, I do NOT receive any compensation for suggesting you visit this site.)

      We’ve now had offers to translate our programs into 5-6 languages.

      To make 10 hours of new videos after someone translated the scripts and recorded them for us, would cost us over $5,000. But the biggest problem is being able to market the new videos in the new language. If we have no way to reach people in different countries, there is no point in spending all the time and money it would take.

    This might be an exaggeration Morty, but I believe you might very well be one of the most important people who have ever lived. Your work has the potential to change the world.

    And this will sound really weird coming from a stranger but I’m proud of you. Ha ha! I don’t know how else to say it, but it’s true. If I was your son I would gladly carry the torch for you. Hell, I’ll do it anyway, just tell me what to do!

    I got 2 ideas for spreading the word on your work:

    1) Find a way to help famous people eliminate insecurities and fears with TLM, so that they recommend it to all of their fanbases. BOOM! Instant popularity!

    2) Make a TV Show. Have you seen “The Dog Whisperer”? In that show, Cesar Millan fixes dogs’ behavior, and it’s a super-popular show. Now imagine how popular a show on fixing PEOPLE’s behavior would be.


    [Narrator] – Ordinary people, facing common everyday problems. And one man with a set of revolutionary techniques, that can cure even the most compulsive behavior.

    [Morty talking to the camera] – “My vision is to significantly improve the quality of life in the world by having people recreate their lives and live as the unlimited possibilities they are”.

    Tonight, on Re-create Your Life:

    We’ll meet John, a man whose social anxiety is so strong, he gets sick just thinking about talking to a pretty girl.

    (Scene of John sweating and stuttering on a sofa next to a hot girl) “Sometimes I even feel scared to leave the house”.

    Sally, a math teacher who feels so compelled to eat all the time, she has gained 300 pounds since her wedding day.

    (Scene of Sally sobbing and munching on a chocolate bar) “No matter what I do, I just can’t lose weight, and if I do, I gain it back!”

    And later: Andy is a raging family man whose violent spurts of anger could not be alleviated even after two years of Anger Management therapy.

    (Scene of Andy yelling at his wife and throwing things, and then it cuts to him talking to the camera) “I can’t help it, I get pissed off at her every time she does something stupid”.

    Can Morty help these people re-create their lives? Stay tuned to find out.

    Now THAT’S a show I would watch :P

    Hi Morty,

    Lot’s of wonderful and interesting comments and ideas. James has some solid suggestions and you might want to contact him. Working with him could move you forward and get your methods (both the LBP and the Lefkoe Occurring Process) out there to the masses.

    I experienced the growth of the “coaching” business having been involved with the Coaches Training Institute in it’s early days, and being part of their first “leadership” program. I’ve seen it explode and expand so that now they have trainings all over the world and hundreds of trainers training people to be coaches. It all began with their training the trainers in that first leadership program. So that is another great way to get the work out there.

    Being an emotionally kinesthetic person myself, and having to eliminate some beliefs several times (you hadn’t created the kinesthetic piece when I first had sessions), I would love to see a product that would made it easier for those that “felt” their beliefs to eliminate them.

    Bless you for your method, your work and all the people you have helped and will help in the futures to come.

    Hi Morty

    I used your progams with a coach for public speaking and they certainly helped although I only did 1 session. What I found just as helpful or even more helpful was face to face help and Hypnosis.

    I think you should incorporate your ideas with Hypnosis DVDS

    I would go further and get custom hypnosis recordings for each person.

    The truth is we are all so different and the only way to hit a real home run in terms of limiting beliefs and real change is through custom designed help.

    Your programs are great but combining a custom approach to MY beliefs and how I got to believe them (not a stock standard approach) plus finishing with Hypnosis Sessions recorded on DVD or online specifically for me would I think then allow my mind to FULLY and subconsciously unprogram the many years of negative beliefs.

    Ive find the combination of Lefkoe with Hypnosis highly effective

    Hi, Morty.
    I wanted you to know that I recently used your TLM for the first time at the same time the World Tapping Summit was happening. The combination was remarkable! TLM helped me get clear of some limiting beliefs that had been holding me back for a long time. Tapping was pretty awesome too. In response to what you would do now, join with me, I’m creating a website that will be able to offer TLM for free and incorporate it where it’ll do the most good, schools! esp. elementary schools where so much damage will be eliminated before the dreaded teen years. My site is completely about helping people and TLM is one of the best ways I know of. My e-mail is included when I started this note, so please get back to me, I’m completely serious and look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for all you do and have done for me.

    I would say write, or write with psychologists, some articles that get published in psych journals. Through this and other efforts, TLM could become a tool therapists use, just as they use EMDR, EFT, CBT, and hypnosis. While EMDR has not been conclusively “proved” in all possible ways, there were enough studies that it got the approval of authorities, therapists can use it as a tool, and it’s now acceptedl. Therapists receive training and decide what to use. LBT could be part of the training they receive or it could be an add-on certificate as EMDR is.

    In England, the Linden Anxiety course is being adapted by British government bodies to promote in their heath care system, and Linden is also a system a non-psychologist came up with. You could work with countries that have national health-care systems, as they are more efficient in getting the word out, and everyone in these countries can go to therapists without extra cost. In the U.S. you’d have to work with insurers, but many therapists who do EMDR, etc. can accept insurance. EMDR, EFT, Linden etc., can all be done at home but people still do go to others for the maximum benefit.

    I love the ideas the other people posted; I love esp. about “training the trainers” and spreading this idea outward. There is a plethora of “self-development” courses and trainings in the world; for myself yours is the only one to get to the heart of the problem. Limiting beliefs; I’ve Googled “limiting beliefs” and for the most part I see “affirmations” as a way of dissolving them. No one addresses the problem like you do; most of the time the person with the limiting belief is told that their beliefs are “false”. Who wants to be told that? Your method is unique and could be taught to thousands through online training, in a community college setting, workshops, and to more psychologists and psychiatrists as an adjunct to other treatments. As for the LOP, you could train others to present the process to others in the aforementioned ways. These same people could take it to the seniors in their senior year of high school and college and teach them the LOP and the LBP. What a way to spread the news! And to every couple planning to be married; what a gift so they start out with a clean slate and grow together! What an act of unconditional love that would be! BTW, I am learning to write fiction and I credit the LOP and the LBP.

    I think you should team up with Cesar Millan and do a series of “Dog Whisperer” episodes where you work together helping dog owners and dogs. He seems very forward thinking too. You could help the owners get rid of limiting beliefs and see if there’s a change in their interactions with their dogs.

    Since you are looking for a reason to continue on with life, make that reason to be the love of self that will carry on with you when you pass from this plane if you choose so. Because one task finished and you will be looking for other task.

    Set up small workshops across the U.S. and see how it goes. Maybe one facilitator for a group of twelve people. If the demand is high and the word spreads about the Lefkoe Method then you may want to expand internationally and increase the class size.

    Byron Katie says we don’t need to even entertain such ideas, just do the next right thing. As you’ve seen above, most of us think you have a brilliant legacy in TLM and in your family.

    I like James’ idea. You need 1000 facilitators to carry on your work. Out of that 1000, there will be at least a few who will emerge as leaders and continue to grow the theory. When a theoretical system/practice remains, significantly, in the hands of the developer alone, it is likely to wither when he is no longer at the helm.

Now… here the crazy part… Give it away! But only to people that prove they are using it. If it is sequential then only give the next step and ask for something in return, a video or completed survey or document from them to progress. Create the whole site in a manner that you can provide a template for others like you to do the same. Give this system away to them in hopes that they will spread the wealth of their endeavors. Obviously there are management costs that maybe instead of free you would ask for a ridiculously low price for usage…. A dollar per section or lesson? I am sure that if your goal was to provide your life’s work in a meaningful way to others for the cost of running the site and admin costs that you may find a way. This would be a wonderful Loving Legacy.”

    You have done incredible work and nothing more is required of you at this stage in your life except to enjoy every moment that you have sharing that with the people you love! When you asked the question what would make the biggest difference to me, what immediately came to mind was what will make the biggest difference to YOU? That is where you should always place your focus, if you continually have a large affect on yourself it will naturally make its way to everyone around you as I am sure you are aware of with this incredible method you have developed in your life and the lives of others. Keep doing you and everything that is supposed to take place in your life will! As far as making the Lefkoe method available to millions of people, just continue to intend it and the universe will do the rest! Best advice I got!

    Agree about the emotional commitment through paying for something, 100%

    The point of giving away free is that a) you’ll never get millions paying for a program like this b) it builds credibility that it’s not a money spinning idea and c) it will allow more people to genuinely find the benefits of the program and sing it’s praises

    It’s an aside to the real challenge, which is getting a proven, reputable, worthwhile, game changing method to change people’s lives into organisations, schools and other large populace places.

    Just my opinion

    It’s interesting that several people suggest offering everything for free. Based on my experience with the Natural Confidence program, I’m not sure whether I agree.

    First, with the five free beliefs, someone does not have to buy something just to find out how the method works. Between the free beliefs and the blog, the information is all freely available.

    Second, when someone buys something it represents a sort of decision or commitment on their part. And having bought something helps to perceive it as something that has value. I find this actually helpful to be able to follow through on something.

    That being said, however, many people may have limiting beliefs about money that would stop them from purchasing something, and these may be among the people who most need to be helped.

  56. James March 9, 2011 at 10:35 am - Reply

    Linsey, thanks for the compliment, I’d certainly be willing to share more of my thoughts if Morty would find it useful.

    The parallel with Gary Craig is useful here, whether EFT works consistently or not is almost a moot point as Gary’s vision was to share it with the world for free.  By sharing the knowledge and experience for free you release any view that the process is hokey psychology facilitated by aggressive online marketing.

    To get this into the minds and hands of the population, your biggest considerations are:-

    1. Perception – without reputable scientific studies your methods will be discounted as new age psychobabble… The same is true of EFT, TFT, TAT etc. How can you get quick reputable and large scale measurable quantitative results on the effectiveness of your method? 

    2. Accessibility – by charging what some would consider a premium it alienates a large proportion of your intended audience (especially in conjunction with point 1).  Offering free will eliminate this and make you an altruist with a gift to share with the world

    3. Awareness – the number of people that know about TLM is minimal in comparison to how many you want to reach.  With one and two covered you would be able to publicise the effectiveness and the low/zero cost which is a far better picture to paint.  It would be easier to get into magazines and onto TV once they were covered…Oprah would be calling… And whilst we’re at it, can you get mainstream high profile people in the public eye to sing your praises through their own personal change? People
    Listen to celebrities, rightly or wrongly, they are hugely influential…

    4. Organisational adoption – if you could control this, why wouldn’t you want schools, businesses, corporations, charities, NGO’s, colleges, prisons, hospitals, care homes etc etc to have trained lefkoe method practicioners helping hundreds of people a year eliminate their limiting beliefs?  This is the natural progression and would give you thousands of success stories to drive further engagement

    5. Training the trainers – again difficult to control but train good solid intelligent people to go out and dispense this knowledge through others (for a fee) so that they can tackle limiting beliefs with others who want to invest in their own development.  This could be your income generator… 1-2-1 training is the peak of delivery of change, if people are serious some will pay to shortcut the self study (free) process…

    6. Widening the net – the US is a big country, but it’s not the whole world… How can you leverage the first five points to make the lefkoe method catch on like wildfire and spread across the globe… And how can you do this in a controlled manner…?

    Big questions, it all comes down to your big vision and what exactly you want to achieve…. Also know that obviously the more people spread this message on your behalf the more opportunity exists for others to dilute, amend and exploit your good work…

    Food for thought

    P.S. Changed my name as there’s another James on here ;)

    Your method has helped me immensely during a very difficult period in my life and has enabled me to move on. So first of all thank you for discovering it and sharing it with all of us.
    On another hand, I am in a similar space as Tia, still chasing after success and accomplishments and feeling somewhat deflated that all that hard inner work on myself didn’t land me in a space of finally ‘being enough’.
    I read your sharing and other people’s comments and I wonder how do you really feel about yourself. And how would you feel if you decided to let everything go and spend the rest of your life doing nothing meaningful for a change… Maybe you do still have some insecurities and maybe you don’t, only you know. What I am realizing that the same issues still come up but on a deeper level than before, leaving me a bit more at peace with myself. I am reminding myself that it isn’t what I do that makes me happy but doing whatever and choosing to be happy. Easier said then done:)
    Thank you for your honest sharing- through it you will grow, and you’ll lead us to grow with you.

    You’ve got the commitment and all the “right stuff” in terms of what The Lefkoe Method is able to produce in people who use it. You’ve also got a “tribe” of raving fans who love your work.

    Here’s what I see would cause the type of explosion you are looking for:

    1) Contact Frank Kern and work with him. He can very quickly engineer what you need in terms of reaching a wide audience, or using the resources you already have to generate large funds quickly.
    That can raise the kind of funds that can make a large-scale research project happen. No one in the internet biz can match what he can do.

    2) Give away some part of the method through the Gates Foundation. They’ve got the people, the clout and the reach to make part of what you want happen on a large scale where it’s most needed. Free is good in that arena.

    3) Hire a General Manager whose sole focus is to make the very clear goals you ‘ve already stated above happen.

    You don’t need to trim down, or just focus on one. You can do them all, and you’ve already got great products to work with. You don’t need more product development. You do need a business team of experienced and outstanding people who will make all of those goals a reality.

    You already have the contacts and the support of people who know people who can make the projects you’ve already listed happen on a large scale.

    Your “growing pains” are terrific and I can’t wait to see all of this happen once you have struggled out of this particular cocoon!

    Love to you and your mission!

    I would like to see a focus on removing limiting beliefs for those of us who are more kinesthetic. It seems to me that the ‘felt’ sense begins at conception, especially for the belief “I am not wanted”…my experience is that is actually a felt experience, not a formed belief, due to unwanted/unplanned pregnancies. I know that can be cleared with hard work and diligence, and I want to know how easily and quickly it can shift!

    Also I like the DVD idea, and can see more would be served if you trained apprentices to carry on your work as well. It would allow personal growth and financial opportunities for more people as well as allow for more collaboration and improvements on your current techniques.

    If you want to reach even more people who are in even more need of what you have to offer, I invite you to consider collaborating with existing humanitarian efforts in 3rd world countries, there are a few people who spend time in brutally ravaged areas such as Rwanda and teach methods such as EFT to release and heal trauma. We are one…reaching out to those most in need and most entrenched in limitation and pain may have a fair greater impact than reaching MORE people.

    Thank you for asking!

    Dear Morty,

    Here is what I would do if I were in your situation.
    1. Choose the simplest most working solution you’ve developed. (From my point of view it’s LOP.)
    2. Spread the epidemics. That is probably the best way to help a lot of people. Spot your followers and early adopters who are willing to spread your message and teach further. Teach them how to teach. In order to do this you have to trust in people. Believe that they can do even better job than you. That they can improve your methods.
    3. Use internet. Make your methods something simple, viral, addictive, easy to share (e.g. educative game or daily usage funny app?). Get advise from experts in this area, they are many of them out there.
    4. Share your teachings for free! You can never spread something that much if people have to pay. You can easily find out the way to cover your expenses along the way. I’d expect this step to happen without u even having to think about it.
    5. Take it easy. You’ve already done more than you think for people. You don’t have to do any new project now. Just be, enjoy life, your family and share your knowledge. Let others to do the work for you. I’m sure many people you’ve already helped to would be happy to do this!

    God bless you Morty! Thanks for all the work you’ve done!

    Hello Morty,

    ” Right now the only way I am able to produce the results this course provides is to personally coach each of the 20 people each week.” What about training others to do what you do? Hale Dwoskin and Byron Katie and many others hold training retreats where they pass on their wisdom.

  64. Michael Valenti March 9, 2011 at 8:44 am - Reply

    Dear Morty,

    I am asking myself the same questions over and over, but that is only because I don’t have a “legacy,” as you call it, yet. Or, let’s say, I didn’t share what I learned in life with many people, yet. I did not practice your method much, but learned to free myself from limiting beliefs and the pressures of the insane way of life of western culture through mindfulness, EFT, and Science of Mind teachings after entering the spiritual path of Alcoholics Anonymous. Especially EFT seems to me to be able to do the same thing as your method. But we all need help from neighbors and friends to do the work of changing our minds, and to make it a permanent way of life.
    Since I don’t have a retirement cushion, now at 61 I wonder how to turn my learning into a program of “Recovery of the true Self” for everyone, a program that can sell. But the main point that comes up every time is the fact that it should be given away for free, as James suggested. In fact the twelveth step of AA says in short: “you can’t keep it, if you don’t give it away.” This refers to our need to work for the good of all without personal concerns, if we want to fulfill the deeper desires of our true Self. Only this complete surrender to the Spirit of love, which is the essence of our true Self, will give you the peace of mind that gets you out of the questioning. And sharing freely is also what needs to happen on a large scale in order to make a real change in the world, to make the wisdom available worldwide and to keep it free from dogmatic thinking and from people coming in, who “know it all better”, – especially after you moved on to a higher level .

    So what I imagine is a simple version of the Lefkoe Method which people can teach each other, so that an organization can grow similar to a “Trauma Anonymous,” – because the limiting beliefs are caused by emotional trauma and a trauma based culture-, or a “Limiting Beliefs Anonymous.” With that intention I formulated an outline for a program for “Trauma Anonymous” based on Mindfulness, EFT, and Science of Mind, and I am working on bringing it online. I will send you the outline, if you are interested, and would be honored if you would get involved in the project. I have been researching traumatic stress for years and can demonstrate that all of emotional illness, all crime and violence, and over 80 % of mental and physical illness are related to emotional traumas from the past experiences. EFT can heal those traumas and collapse the disease resulting from them, and it seems the Lefkoe Method can do it too. So what else is more important and what else could be more beneficial for humanity than spreading the methods of self healing? There is no better legacy than that.
    Sincerely yours,

    Morty, I don’t think what any of us wants should make any difference in your decision. I think, as someone else also suggested, that when you connect with your Greater You – your Spirit Self, what YOU feel most excited about and drawn to will come to you. Then follow the inspired ideas that come to you around that. No shoulds. No listening to what others want. Just YOU.

    I see a two-fold solution (that is, until the entire world gets the Lefkoe Method.) One, reach the world through OWN and then provide one-on-one coaching/support for people, to insure they find their word, speak their word and keep their word. I know there aren’t enough hours in a day, days in a week, weeks in a year, etc, for you to be with each and everyone of us….so clone yourself (train many, many others to do what you do) so we all have our own personal “Morty” while, at the same time, you show up for us on your own television show.

    Why are you asking everyone else? As far as your list, I suppose the PTSD soldiers. But as far as life and such, well, at least for me, spend time loving people and trying to know God. You got the money, fame, people stuff all zipped. Probably also the God stuff. But, yeah, for me…we are here for more then just making money, getting famous, or even helping people. We are here to Love each other and Love God. If you are doing that, then enjoy the rest of your life, let God show you daily what opportunities and adventures to have and relax and eat healthy and workout so you can enjoy the Golden Years.

    I am realizing the law of attraction in my life and to me the only reason that I saw your question first thing in the morning at 4:40 AM means that you are meant to help me with my quest for the “three biggies”:
    1. How to be immortal
    2. How to be ageless
    3. How to be rich forever
    The answer as it has occurred to me is:
    1. I am immortal as I identify with my soul and not my body
    2. I am ageless as soon as I realize that age is a mental construct and if I can look at the “oldest person” that I can find and see the youth and beauty in them, I will be ageless
    3. I am rich as soon as I realize that poverty is a mental construct and as soon as I can look at the “poorest person” that I can find look at them and see the abundance in them
    Now in my life everything goes from my thinking (mind) to believing (heart) to knowing (every cell in my body). In my case the experiences in life seem to help me move from thinking to beleiving to knowing I am at a stage where i am between thinking and believing for these three hiw can you help?
    Please let me know if you can help me.
    Good luck with finding the bliss in your quest to help millions. I am currently using a process that Kevin T has created and Dr Ted Morter introduced to me. There is a foundation that this process establishes and as I am getting this foundation it looks to me like I can learn anything. This may be worth looking into to see if you can incorporate this into your work and make it more accessible.
    The only thing that I have realized lately is that we can only hold the intention and the knowing that everyone can reach bliss. Not everyone us ready to ecperience bliss for their own reasons and if we hold the intention and the knowing that everyone can reach bliss than we enable those that are not ready move quickly to a stage when they are ready and then attract them to us to move forward.
    Please let me know if you can help me and hopefully you are able to find something in my response that is worth your time in reading this.

    May you always move towards peace and joy.

    Hi Morty

    I feel that a well produced DVD with lots of practical demonstrations would be a great legacy and at an affordable price. I know that you are still a business so selling on your years of knowledge is perfectly acceptable and I for one would be glad to pay for the knowledge. As a maths exercise try this on for size. Train 10 people to do TLM and take a year to do it, then have them train 10 people each over a second year, and then everyone trains another 10 people for a year and in 10 – 12 years the whole worlds population will be able to do TLM. Now that is a legacy.
    Gary Craig gave away EFT including very cheap DVD sets to drive that healing modality forward and now it is sweeping the world.
    He will always live on in memory as the founder of EFT for many many years to come.

    Morty, you deserve to be up there with him and others as the new founding fathers of a world movement for change. If it is a legacy that you want then train instructors from all over the world at a rate they can afford, not as a business but as a service to mankind and then it will spread like wildfire.

    Whatever you decide keep going as long as you can, but remember to train the next generation to carry your work on when you eventually retire. So you are 73 years young, what a time to be around to see the world change and usher in a new millenium.

    Love and peace

    Wow Morty you look great, might I say! I am one of those people that, although I am visual I experience the world kinesthetically and I don’t seem to be able to keep the beliefs illuminated, however something else happened instead. As I did all the natural confidence beliefs so many damn times, over and over, one day I just got that nothing had any meaning and we apply meaning to everything. How we feel, simply labeling a feeling is giving it a meaning (anger, fear, etc.), then weather it is positive or negative, then what that means about the work we are doing, etc, the meaning of the meanings even! Maybe it is just me and I am insane, but this was exhausting! It is like everything is in a little box in the brain, signed, sealed, delivered and there was no room for anythings new. I was living my life according to how I felt, or more to the point, how I thought I was going to feel in the future, in an attempt to limit the amount of pain. I decided that I could rise above it and live my life anyway, my body can go on feeling what ever it wanted to, my mind can interpret things how ever it liked, none of it is necessarily true! If I feel painful it is just energy and it will pass. I am not afraid of how I am going to feel anymore and all of my stress has gone!
    Morty, now is your time, enjoy it, and go see how life can blow your mind and give you experiences that you can not even imagine now. Don’t worry about us too much, we can find our path too as you did, you don’t need to do the work for everyone.

    P.S. Who says you are not going to live for another 30 or 40 years?

      I couldn`t agree with you more Lydia.

      For many years I was a responsibility addict thinking I was responsible for people, this gave me a spurious kind of importance. This was a very superior mindset I was inhabiting, which thankfully I am shedding.
      I am not decrying all the `good` that people do and Morty too, but I found this was a way of taking the focus off me, which mean`t I never dived into the dark realms within my inner being. As I gradually came home to myself the realisation dawned that I had abandoned myself in favour of placing responsibility onto someone outside myself to get the help I needed, rather than do the hard work of going within to get the guidance I needed. When the moment of revelation descended I saw I had been living as a child in an adults body waiting for someone else to help and be responsible for me. This had not allowed me to grow up and so I had stayed stuck in an old pattern, not only of thinking but of feeling too.

      As I have let go of needing to to plan and map everything out I was able to let go of needing to control everything. Life is not about control , nor is it about guarantees.

      Wanting to leave a legacy is a very fine thing but behind it often lies the need to be immortal. I don`t think legacy can be measured, a legacy is a legacy no matter what its size – quantity is not quality.

      There are people in the world who won`t leave anything to their children, which to most people would seem appalling. But those children may have inherited a legacy money can`t buy, true self and and true self sustaining qualities.

      Good luck Morty.

    Spend more time addressing and working through the regrets and sense of invisibility people have as they age. I realized I was aging when I saw a corporate video that did not have one person my age in it – they were all in their mid thirties. I’m still pissed! :)

    Looking back on my life and career, there are plenty of things I would have done differently and now need to realize I am who I am and it’s okay. However, there is still some lingering depression/regret going on that I just can’t shake. I am still not where I want to be in terms of my sense of accomplishment in my career vocation. So, that is a big issue, if for me, then surely for others.

    How to continue moving toward goals that sometimes feel beyond reach…no matter how much knowledge, education and insight one might have can be a real challenge. I’d like to see you address that more clearly and with real time solutions.

    Thx for your honesty Morty!

    I think you can inspire those in the older age brackets who still have much to offer the world and their individual societies and communities. Your message here isn’t one of regret but of moving past into something new.

    Oh and no offence to those leaving comments already but they fail to address Morty’s question of how to widen the reach of the methods to a greater audience… Simply saying that he’s already doing a great job, whilst nice, isn’t practical advice…

    I think what you’re doing Morty is great and inspirational, but there’s a great deal more that could be done to make these methods ingrained into how people ‘work’

    And isn’t that the goal? The supreme goal is to make the Lefkoe Method obsolete by ingraining this level of self generating belief awareness into people’s mental processes so that limiting beliefs never form, because people see the world and themselves for what they truly are.

    Now THAT would be one of the greatest achievements in history.

      I’m not sure that human beings as we know them will ever get to the point where they no longer form beliefs, but we certainly can get to the point where everyone knows how to help everyone else eliminate beliefs so that no one has to live with negative beliefs once identified for more than a day.

      That actually is my ultimate goal, one unlikely to be realized in my lifetime.

    How about addressing the issue of ageing. How do you address this? What is your take on death? How can you enhance the ageing experience with the wisdom you have accumulated over the years? How much of your work is in covering up your fears around ageing and dying?What is the ‘sage’ within you wanting to address at this stage of your life? do you see death as an ending or a new beginning? We talk about a quality of living what would a quality of dying look like?…

    Hey Morty, 

    I’ve used your methods to some success and I have faith that they work a good percentage of the time, I just need to find the time to work through the remainder of my beliefs.  I thank you for sharing this process.

    If you want to reach millions and not thousands and make a real difference in the world I think there’s some things you can practically do.

    Firstly, engage more reputable scientific bodies to perform studies on the effectiveness of your methods.  Firm evidence will greatly increase the viability of your methods to the wider population and not limit it to those open minded free and alternative thinkers.

    Secondly, I’d concentrate on sharing what you already have rather than creating new products/processes to close the ten percentage gap of two percent of the population.

    Thirdly, and this may not sit well with you, I’d start giving all of your existing programs away for free.  That’s right for free.  All your streaming video output shared with the world.  What could be more encouraging for potential new lefkoe converts than zero risk and zero investment.

    It might seem counter intuitive but ask yourself if you want to change the world or build and maintain a business.  Even if you still want an income there are many ways to monetize a free information service if it becomes popular enough.  A nominal fee for millions of users beats a high fee for a select group.

    That’s the big question, are you prepared to take a risk to lose personally for the worlds gain? 

    Fourthly, recognising that learning from a screen is not as effective as learning from a trained professional, I’d start to train more people in the art your methods and get them out in the world sharing your knowledge and skills.  The issue then becomes control and management of your methods so they are delivered with the same quality of care that you provide.

    Lastly, I’d try and target institutions where you can see the greatest rewards, schools, colleges, young offenders programmes, drug addiction centres,  out of work groups etc. All of these will have a wealth of opportunities to target those people held back by their limiting beliefs and really help to turn peoples lives around. Getting into forward thinking schools will be the greatest benefit, shaping young people into confident adults.

    I know some of this won’t sit well, especially in the land of free enterprise and the right to make a living.  The question is: do you want to leave a business empire where a relatively small number of people benefit but that provides security for your family and loved ones, or are you interested in building a legacy to span the globe and potentially change the lives of millions? 

    Hey, even Bill Gates is giving his fortune away…

      I have been thinking about giving the Natural COnfidence program away free, but I need to find a way to replace the income it now brings in to cover the costs of salary and other business expenses. I also need to find a way for people to experience it as valuable if they don’t pay. I have no interest in having 1,000,000 download the program and 1,000 use it.

      We probably will be offering a training in the next couple of months. We are working on turning an in-person training into an on-line training and that has some problems we are still trying to solve.

      And we will work on finding someone else to conduct another study as soon as the one we just finished has been published.

      Thanks. Love, Morty

    Morty: Though my answer to your “73 year old question” is short, it is not without much thought. I believe you need to keep doing what you are doing! Even though I have used your free materials only, I still have been profoundly helped by and through your efforts. I believe there are still many, many people who could be helped to fuller lives through your methods. Please continue your work as long as you feel able and willing. If anything, please find ways to get your message to more people. Sincerely, Dr Bob

    Hi Morty
    I am one of the priviledged people who came upon your work while researching my own work as an NLP Relationship Coach. I live in South Africa and just starting my own coaching business, doing what I love to do!
    I’d like to comment on your question ‘What legacy do I want to leave the world’. In my view you already have a ‘legacy’ by the work that you have done so far and the impact that you have had on so many thousands of people, including myself. I have listened to your belief change techniques and have eliminated some limiting beliefs within myself.
    This in itself is something that will live on forever…
    You are admired and loved by many! This is your legacy!
    Living the Life that you Love!
    all the best

    Hello Morty,
    thank you for sharing so openly a question we all suffer from: “what should I do with the rest of my life?”. I do not have any ideas concerning your legacy, sounds like you’ve done really well already! What I do know is that I recognize a fellow Mind at work :), so I would recommend what I normally do when I’m suffering from being “up in the head”: listening to Eckhart Tolle, doing yoga or meditation, spending time in nature – whatever that quiets the Mind. When the Mind calms down I’m always amazed at how the questions that were so urgent, so vital, suddenly seem less important to answer. The sence of urgency I feel is always coming from the Mind, and when disengaging from the Mind there is always peace. A much better place to make decisions from. All the best to you, Estelle

    Hey Morty,
    Very timely post as a friend and I were recently discussing this never-ending restlessness with life. It seems once you get what you think will fulfill you, it ultimately doesn’t fulfill and you start searching for something else to fill the void. You have a long and successful marriage and children. Your work helps thousands of people worldwide, yet there is still a restlessness in you that seeks to do more. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, I’m just questioning if there ever comes a point where we can enjoy what we have and feel fulfilled. Is it just the human condition?

    Hi Morty,

    This question:

    “What legacy do I want to leave the world?”

    may come from a belief that “I’m not important”.

    Maybe it’s the need to recieve more love… “I am loved”

    The message to you is:

    Morty, You are loved and You are important!

    We all love you morty.

    ~ Simpley Enjoy THE LOVE.

      Greetings Morty,

      As you know our legacy is bigger than us and so must your vision be bigger than you. You have done an awesome job developing the Lefkoe Method and helping individuals use it. However, if you want to go beyond your current situation, it is time to develop leaders who will carry on your work, your message. Jesus would not be known today had he not took the time to develop leaders, who could and would carry out his life’s message. And so it is with you. To give your legacy a life of its own, you have to develop leaders who will carry on the work, the message. People who have the skills that you may not have. People who can and will take what you have created and expand upon it, make it their own, and carry it into the world. Now is not the time to sit back. Now is the time to dig deep. Now is the time to pour out your soul and pour it into a select, proven, trusted, few. It will not be for money for them or you. It will be about the calling.

      While I am sure you have thought about this idea already, I just felt inspired to share it with you. Your work is awesome. Be of good cheer. It will not be forgotten.

        James I could not have said it better. Thoes were my thoughts. Marty the next move is to train the trainers. Train them in such a way they carry on your vision in the way you developed it. There are more people and more problems than 1 person or 100,00 of us can help solve but if we train the trainers we can do this. Let us help.
        Be Blessed
