Powerful-U Creator (the world’s first personal evolution company), Award-Winning Filmmaker + Co-Author of "PERCEPTION: Seeing Is Not Believing," James Purpura joins eHealth Radio and the Depression and Mental Health Channels to talk about "How to Love Yourself." He has created a documentary along with a book both with the same title, PERCEPTION: Seeing Is Not Believing.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest James Purpura discuss the following:

  1. What is the premise behind Powerful-U and what is the first step in loving yourself?
  2. Why do we sometimes not see ourselves as others see us?
  3. How can we know how others truly perceive us?
  4. Why do some of us seem to be inherently negative, and others eternally optimistic
  5. How do we change? And does change always have to be painful?

 

Eu_Natural_Serenity_Ads_300x250_2_6iqmc.jpg

 

PERCEPTION: Seeing Is Not Believing” Synopsis — James and Steph Purpura’s journey of transformation is nothing short of extraordinary. Before they met 15 years ago, their lives had hit rock bottom. Each was financially, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt. At the lowest point in their lives, they met and shared a vision of creating a life beyond their wildest dreams. They helped each other to personally evolve, clearing away barriers to self-fulfillment, using the power of perception to change self-limiting beliefs, enabling them to better sense and take advantage of opportunities. Shortly after meeting, Steph wrote James' first resume and taught him how to send an email. This initiated an unlikely but highly successful career in the technology industry.

Fast forward more than a decade, and their personal philosophy around perception had further evolved, along with the rapid growth in their tech company, until its sale gave them the freedom to begin helping others full time. With their seminar company, Powerful U, they are now sharing their accumulated knowledge so that personal development can be made affordable and accessible for all seekers.

We highly recommend viewing the film prior to the interview, which will definitely help the conversation. While many of us are on lock down during this pandemic, James is gifting a free film download for all who hope to benefit from its messaging.
