3 Day Successful Life Course

(also known as “Happy School”, “Happy Camp”, and “Camp Terrific”)

If there were a way that YOU could enjoy a happier, healthier, more successful personal life than you are already living,
you’d probably want to know about it, wouldn’t you?

Ed Foreman, Earlene Vining and the team at Executive Development Systems have developed a unique, comprehensive habit improvement program that can expand your sphere of living mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Ed presents at the Successful Life Course

Just like business men and women, professionals, sales people, housewives, and individuals from all walks of life, you can develop The SUCCESSFUL LIFE Course principles into habits that help you to:

  • Recognize and control stress;
  • Relax and re-energize;
  • Develop and maintain a positive mental attitude;
  • Set, follow through, and achieve personal, family, and business goals;
  • Improve your self-confidence;
  • More persuasively and effectively sell your ideas;
  • Eliminate negative, life-sapping habits (smoking, overeating, etc.);
  • Develop a healthy, trim body without boring diets or strenuous exercises;
  • Manage your time and resources to get more done in less time;
  • Improve your communication techniques;
  • Upgrade your ability to express yourself and feel comfortable while doing so;
  • Develop an enthusiastic, enjoyable pattern of happy, healthy, successful daily living.

This three-day, premier intensive personal habit improvement program is conducted in a quiet, beautiful resort in McCormick’s Creek State Park, Spencer, Indiana, about 55 miles southwest of Indianapolis. Beautiful scenery, gracious staff and history blend together at Indiana’s Oldest State Park to make your visit unforgettable. Enjoy the peaceful calm of the canyon and cliffs. It is the perfect place where you can get away from the big city and business pressures and learn in a relaxed environment.

You arrive mid-afternoon the day before (on the Check-in date), where you have a chance to wind-down, relax, and get well rested for the Classes which begin the next morning. It is an exciting, enjoyable, life-expanding experience and an investment that pays magnificent dividends… in Good Health, Happiness, Family Relationships, Business Growth, Financial Gain, and a longer, more meaningful and fulfilling LIFE!

This course is so good, it was featured POSITIVELY on CBS News 60 Minutes!

“Until we came to see it for ourselves, we did not believe it was possible that mature adults could/would significantly alter their lives for the better as a result of a 3-day educational experience. The significant improvements were effected by a unique combination of techniques that have proven to be long-term beneficial to the longevity, vitality & performance of the participants.”

Here are just a few of the testimonials we received:

“I have been selected for promotion to Rear Admiral. That may not surprise you as much as it did me, but you should know that when I arrived in Kerrville, I would have seriously told you that would never happen. I am convinced that had I not attended the SLC, I would not have been selected…I would have found a way to ensure my expectation of failure was realized. While at the seminar, I set new, higher goals — living, thinking and acting like I already had. The impact has been tremendous. Bottom line…Thanks! And keep on doing what you’re doing; it really makes a difference!”
RADM W. D. Center, United States Navy, Norfolk, VA
“I was trying to decide whether to write how the SLC had changed my personal or professional life…and then realized that both have been significantly positively improved. What a difference you have helped me to make! The prescriptions, all three, really do work and I’m enjoying following them. Not only do I feel better, but my friends comment on the change in me, including my complexion, my disposition, confidence, health and happiness. The SLC was the best experience of my life! I which everyone I knew could attend!”
Ronda Rowe, Madill, OK
“I do not know of any other motivational event that I have ever been exposed to that has meant so much to me as attending your seminar 10 years ago and again 5 years later. Through life some of us experience family difficulties, business reverses, financial challenges and illness, over which we have no control; however, using the sound ideas you outline in the Daily Menu, we have methods with which to cope, solve problems, and succeed. Ed, I hope things are going well with you and your group and your family, and may God bless you for what you do for others.”
J. Roger Allspaugh, Oil and Gas Properties, Dallas, TX
“As you can see from the letterhead, I won my election! Your course gave me the boost I needed for the stretch drive of the campaign. The infusion of enthusiasm I received out there was certainly what I needed…I went door to door to over 6,000 homes, and told everyone I met that I was going to win. Pretty soon everyone started believing it. I think of the things I learned in the SUCCESSFUL LIFE Course every day.”
Senator Greg Gregory, State of South Carolina
“I’m participating in the GOOOD life since attending the SUCCESSFUL LIFE Course. The 3 prescriptions are great guidelines…I’m more conscientious of what I eat and drink, I exercise each day, and I look for something good in every situation. The tapes are wonderful, enthusiastic reinforcements of what I will and can do each day.”
Glenda Lawson, Milliken & Company
“The SUCCESSFUL LIFE Course is real….it’s practical. From manufacturing to customer service to sales to the headquarters leadership group…for individuals, families, customers or corporate team building, it’s the finest life-enriching educational investment we have ever made!”
Larry Johnston, former President & CEO, Albertsons,
GE Medical, GE Appliances, Simpsonville, KY
“Your program is a meaningful, unforgettable experience that has significantly improved the professional and personal performance of all our team members. It made a tremendous difference in every area of our lives. We are happier, safer, healthier, kinder, more creative, and productive…an investment that returns measurable dividends!”
Robert H. Chapman, III, President & CEO, Inman Mills, Inman, SC
“Without question, the SUCCESSFUL LIFE Course was one of the most outstanding educational experiences of my life. I have followed through every single day. I am absolutely amazed how much energy it has given me…and what a pleasure to have Lynn go through the program with me and join me on the walks each morning. You have created a unique system and process that is logical and simple to follow. It’s fun! I’m amazed at the improvements I’ve made and never really thought I needed to make without going through the process. Thanks for all you’ve done. Sometimes you don’t realize how much good you do. Please keep doing it!”
Craig Long, VP, Milliken University & Quality, Spartanburg, SC
“Since attending the SLC in mid-1998, I have closely followed your recipe for Successful Living…utilizing the self-talk, subconscious programming & related daily activities. The mental pictures are actualizing & the objectives are materializing. Does it work? Beyond any doubt, your principles do work wonderfully & amazingly! Thanks, for believing, teaching & helping others along the way.”
Ed J. Rapp, Group President and CFO, Caterpillar, Peoria, IL
“I want to thank you and Earlene for all that you have done for me. The tools you provided me have already proved invaluable. I now see things as never before and for the first time have allowed myself to enjoy and absorb life to the fullest. By simply changing my attitudes and expressions, I have been able to realize many opportunities which I had previously looked at as closed doors. I am truly thankful that I was given the opportunity to spend a few days with you and Earlene.”
Tom O’Donnel, Cincinnati, OH

Sounds Terrific! What’s the Cost?

If you don’t take it, the COST is a lifetime of “half-living”; about as many “bad” days as “good”; “downs” about equal to the “ups”; the normal trials and tribulations of anxiety, frustration, stress and worry; a “pretty good” get-by existence and looking forward to the “someday” when maybe you’ll be happy.

When you participate in the Successful Life Course program and develop habits of these specific daily living techniques, you will enjoy the dividends of a new aliveness, alertness and zest for life; improved physical health; a brighter, more positive and constructive outlook; improved awareness and appreciation for yourself, your family and your job; increased income; and, you’ll master the formula on how to make every day a GOOOD DAY!

Enroll, participate, and begin these NEW LIFE habits today and start Laughing, Loving, and Living Your Way to the GOOOD LIFE. The tax-deductible tuition of $2,995 per individual includes lodging, meals, CD album, books, and all instructional materials. Package rates are available for groups of six or more.
