Love Is A Choice
Barry Neil Kaufman introduces the concept of choosing to love as a way to increase your own happiness and generate more love and happiness in the world.
Imagine learning to invoke love in an instant, with anyone… before you say anything or take any action so that you are grounded in the priority to love. This is truly a position of peaceful strength and gentle power.
Emotional Freedom: Victim No More
Raun K. Kaufman, an international speaker, writer and former teacher for The Option Institute and the Autism Treatment Center of America®, offers an empowering perspective.
Many of us feel like a victim of people and events around us. Happiness seems random, evasive, fleeting — dependent on circumstances outside of our control. This need not be the case. By taking ownership of our own thoughts and feelings, we need not ever be a victim of outside events again. Taking ownership puts us in the driver’s seat of our own experience of life!
Empirical studies have shown that people who are happy perform better at work, have stronger relationships at home, make clearer decisions about their lives, exhibit greater self-control and coping skills, have stronger immune systems, live longer… the list goes on and on. Yet, for many, happiness seems random, evasive, fleeting…

These concepts and much more are explored and expanded in the personal development program, Empower Yourself, given only at The Option Institute.

Happy Negotiations for Couples, Parents for Any Relationships
Barry Neil Kaufman provides the principles for happy negotiations for couples, or parents, or any relationship.
Does your relationship seem like a lot of hard work? Or, are you and your partner completely on autopilot? Perhaps you have a great relationship that others envy, but still want more.
The course is built on a simple yet profound concept: your partner doesn’t make you happy or unhappy. You have the power to decide how you feel, regardless of what your partner does!
Imagine a relationship liberated from the blame game. No more “You don’t care”, “You hurt me”, “You don’t appreciate me”. When partners take ownership of their own feelings and experiences, the door swings open for limitless expressions of love and affection — without conditions, without blame and without manipulation.
Releasing Fear & Anxiety: The Anatomy of Fear
Barry Neil Kaufman clearly explains why and how we use fear to take care of ourselves, even though this often creates limiting beliefs and anxiety.
Fear can be an ever present, incapacitating emotion that prevents you from completing the simplest tasks. Or it can be a rare occurrence out of nowhere catching you at just the wrong time. Or it can be a background anxiety just below the surface that you can’t put your finger on. Big or small, fear can impact every facet of your life from your career, to your health, to your relationship.
Overcoming Addictions: You’re in Charge!
In this video, Barry (Bears) Neil Kaufman, suggests that the fundamental difference between discipline and addiction is a judgment.
If you habitually work out, you’re disciplined. If you habitually smoke cigarettes, you’re addicted. You look at both activities through a filter based on your own personal beliefs, therefore putting your stamp of approval on one activity and not the other. Bears further explains how each moment offers you the opportunity to choose and how easily you can make profound changes in your habits by simply identifying the beliefs that fuel your so-called “habitual” behaviors.
Personal Empowerment: No More Apologizing for What You Want
Raun K. Kaufman lays out clear and compelling reasons to stop apologizing for what we want. Apologizing actually disempowers us and holds us back from going for and getting what we want. When we STOP apologizing, we empower ourselves to live a much more fulfilling life.
How many times have you set your sites on something huge, something amazing, knowing that this is it, that you’re really going for it . . . only to find yourself back in the same situation? Perhaps it’s the job that you didn’t apply for because you “knew” you wouldn’t get it, or the date that surely would have turned you down or the lifelong dream to be a musician, a writer or an entrepreneur but you never got around to it.
In the personal development program, Empower Yourself, given only at The Option Institute. you will develop the confidence and skills to bring your greatest dreams to life — dreams that you may never even have been willing to acknowledge previously.
