One day up... the next day down  —  But now you can gain     stability and success

There are those who try to do right and
those who specialize in wrong and upon these facts
and characteristics you can know them.

—  L. Ron Hubbard

When you suddenly start making mistakes, it is caused by     something. When you feel happy and, for no apparent reason,     suddenly start feeling down, somebody made this happen.

There are specific types of personality — those who wish people     well and those who are ill‑intentioned.

If you have experienced a roller coaster of emotion or ups and     downs in your life, someone around you could be suppressing     you — squashing you or trying to make you smaller.

On the Overcoming Ups & Downs in Life Course you     will learn:

  • How to distinguish the two types of people — those who try to     build things up and those who try to tear things down.
  • What to do about people who wish you harm.
  • How to recognize your true friends from those who work     against you.

With the know‑how to handle the causes behind your misfortunes,     you can change your life for the better, make those ups and     downs a thing of the past and aspire to your highest goals.

"I learned about people in my life who are there to tear me     down or build me up. I learned the characteristics of them so     now I can see it in people with whom I surround myself. This     will help me to remove the negative people."  — J.S.
"This has been the best experience while studying a course     on people and personalities. Human behavior has always     interested me and has been one of my favorite studies. This     course explained everything that was missing from all the other     books I'd read. I understand the how, why, what and when and I     can feel free now." —  S.P.
"The data in this course helped me understand the condition     I was in. As I applied this knowledge, my life began to change     almost immediately. I realized how constructive and disastrous     people can be and why they may be this way. This helped me to     know my true friends and the people I can trust. It helped me     to deal with things that I thought I had no control over. I can     use this knowledge to improve my life and be successful."      — C.F.

Length of course is 6 days part-time.
