Many of them connect to what you already know. With the infusion of Consistent Positive Direction, they are connected to human experiences, stories and observations. Hence, you will encounter a number of approaches that include "catchy" acronyms or names such as the MC, Mo's Reality Check, CIC, Inside RAPPP, TOLL Free Openness and more. There are over 165 Power Options. Those that are included in this book expand your readiness for forward movement, resolving differences, finding solutions, building relationships, and making change work more easily, all in a positive direction.
