Success Full Living Workshop

Tens of thousands of people have taken Success: Full Living, attained amazing results, and now live rewarding lives. In this 2-day workshop you learn how to:


  • Clarify and plan for goals

  • Keep your attitude positive

  • Motivate yourself

  • Overcome fear

  • Move through life transitions effectively

  • Learn to affirm yourself and others

  • See problems and/or obstacles as opportunities

The Workshop uses lecture, meditation, music, physical exercise, goal setting, and life planning in a setting of small-group discussions, audio-video aids, a detailed self-evaluation, and lots of fun.

The skills you receive can help you put meaning and peace in your life as well as show you how to create balance in your daily schedule.

After the workshop you will take home tools that you can use for the rest of your life; tools that you can give to your children and grand-children for the rest of their lives.

The  content is also available in book form and in a 3-CD album.

I learned how important right attitudes are. The course made me want to change, and it gave me the tools to structure new goals for myself.

“Success: Full Living offers us a roadmap to inner peace and to a balance of inner and outer success.”

Gerald Jampolsky,M.D

“In Success: Full Relating, Justin Belitz, OFM, offers seven principles he has learned and lived— often through great struggle—about making relationships richer and more fulfilling.”

Barbara Stahura, Author and Certified Instructor, Journal to the Self®

“Jose Silva, the founder of the Silva Method, is a man I have admired for a long time. I have used the Silva Method of visualization for many years. It has helped me overcome illnesses, accidents and avoid surgery. I urge you to attend Silva’s training sessions.”

Wayne Dyer, Ph.D, Author and Certified Instructor, Journal to the Self®

“The field of personal improvement and inspirational writing is riddled with pseudo-technological claptrap very similar to the field of psychiatry. Fr. Justin’s writing is remarkably devoid of such; indeed, his messages are powerful truths about how to grow in life. He has crystallized his teaching with vigor, warmth, and love. This is some book!”
