"Morty's got a technique that works like magic!"

"The Lefkoe procedure works. It helps you identify a belief that is holding you back and
eliminates it....it's a blessing."
Founder of MonthlyMentor
"I have had a fear of public speaking even though I've been a public speaker for years. I had goosebumbs and tightness in my stomach. But it wasn't until after experiencing The Lefkoe Method with Shelly Lefkoe that I completely got rid of that fear."
Co-Founder of Healthy Wealthy 'N Wise
"Through my work with Shelly and Morty I learned there were belief system I was holding on to. They taught me to hold onto a new truth. I realized I had unlimited possibilities open to me."

Owner Of An Architecture Firm
I have struggled with feelings of claustrophobia when driving on highways all my adult life. The work we did with eliminating the beliefs attached to the problem has been fantastic. For the past two weeks I have been driving on the highways again without symptoms. What a relief! I have also felt a growing inner peace from the work. The low grade chronic restlessness that used to drive me to over function is gone. I now look forward to any feeling that might come up and suggest another belief I can clean up. As I move through the DVD, I am enjoying the growing lightness that comes from letting go of this inner baggage. Great Stuff! Thanks!
CEO, Move the Mountain Leadership Center
Believe me this works! For many years, I had tried many personal development schemes in an attempt to sort out my issues and improve my life.
Yes there were changes, but my fundamental issues were still there, lurking below the surface ready to pop up and sabotage whatever it was I was trying to achieve which they did on a regular basis. What I know now to be limiting self-beliefs.
I likened myself and my limiting beliefs to a defective window frame; dirty glass, rotten wood, difficult to open and let some fresh air in. The personal development schemes of the past were nothing other than a quick wipe of the glass and a coat of fresh paint. Afterwards on a glance it looks good but underneath nothing much had changed. The decaying wood and difficult to open window were still in place. Then one day when in a particularly anguished and frustrated place, I was angling for some free advice from a good friend of Shelly's.
All Shelly's friend said was give Shelly a ring she does sessions over the phone. And so I did, and as they say the rest is history. One by one my limiting beliefs are being replaced by positive ones; my old patterns and issues dissolving away. I feel happier, more relaxed, and substantially more confident. The glass is clean, the rotten wood has been replaced, the window now opens easily letting in fresh air and light to my soul. A friend said to me the other day now when you smile all of you smiles.
As I said, believe me this works. So what is your limiting belief that stops you giving it a try.
Since I worked with Morty on many of my limiting beliefs I have lost 30 pounds without really trying any new diets or programs. I just seem to be much more aware of what is happening and what I am feeling when the topic of eating comes in to my mind. I feel the work we did together was the key to help me see what needed to be changed, and 30 less pounds is the proof!
Prior to working with Shelly and the Lefkoe Method I had a lot of hidden beliefs that were in the way of my success and our business goals.
Although I was confident at certain tasks and I knew how to act confident, deep down I rarely felt it. The Lefkoe Method has boosted my confidence (and our business success) beyond what I thought was possible. I have eliminated my anxiety about speaking in public, selling our programs, and creating the success I have always dreamed of.
Mark Watson, Cofounder - Wealth Inside Out Trainings
When I first began working with the Lefkoes, I had substantial anxiety issues, in particular a phobia of flying on planes. At first, it seemed the focus of our work would be on the flying, but I realized there was much more work that needed to be done, that flying was really a symptom, not the issue. After my sessions, my anxiety was really "cracked open" and I had an entirely new understanding of its origins, and how it functioned in my life. I could also see it as "object' vs. being the "subject" of it.
While working with both Morty and Shelly my life began moving and shifting out of a highly toxic state into a positive state of possibility. I found new avenues, new clarity and began to move forward creating the life and future I want for myself. Today I feel like an entirely different person from when I had my first session with Shelly. I have done a lot of work along the way and a true high point, and benchmark of my progress is that just a few weeks ago, I flew for the first time in 7 years, (and the first time without any medication in probably 20!).
I used to have beliefs that I did not deserve to make a lot of money and that it was a "sin" to be wealthy. Consequently, I was always getting paid at the bottom salary level for my work in the nonprofit world. All that has changed. Through working with the Lefkoe Method - particularly with Shelly Lefkoe - I now make over $100,000 a year plus bonuses. My last jump in salary was 64%. My beliefs have changed and so has my life.
I asked several of the people whom you met with and had coaching sessions with yourself or Shelly for examples of how they benefited. Some examples are listed below.
I learned why I procrastinated. Then I stopped procrastinating. This allows me to prioritize and focus my attention on what's most important instead of always rushing to finish things at the last second.
I learned to focus on how I feel about myself instead of worrying what others thought about me. This allows me to communicate with others more honestly than I could in the past.
I have developed the mindset that anything is possible. In the past I would often sabotage my efforts because I did not believe my goal could be achieved. Now I can comfortably work on improvement activities and I expect to be successful.
I have better self-esteem. I realize that I don't need to be perfect and that's ok.
Realizing that I was not a disappointment to my parents and that I am valuable, allows me to engage more effectively when I interact with others.
I realize there are other possibilities to what currently exists and that things do not have to stay the way they are if I don't want them to.
Russ Scott, CEO Duratrack
Over the last several years I had struggled daily with a persistent and debilitating sense of fear around people. I had seen counselors and I had taken anti-depressants. After a few years of fighting a losing battle over my social nervousness I gave up and became social anxiety's victim.
My social anxiety directed my life. I felt empty inside. I hungered for more.
I wanted to be free of fear yet I felt it was hopeless. My best friend spoke of the Lefkoe process. Skeptical, but interested, I listened.
He told me about the work Morty and Shelly were doing. And that they could change my life! With nothing to lose and my whole life to gain I called to schedule an appointment. Immediately Shelly helped me realize that my environment and more specifically my interpretation of my environment caused a litany of beliefs that directly contributed to my social fears. I learned that my social anxiety was not genetic and even more importantly something I could overcome! Over the last several sessions I have started to see the possibilities and everything is changing. The real me is coming out.
She had helped me permanently remove the beliefs that I was ugly, stupid, and nervous. I love who I am now. When I started with Shelly my goal was to not be nervous. While I have seen substantial improvement in that area I have learned something of more systemic value: Tony is great the way he is.
Shelly has dedicated herself to making my life amazing. She pours her soul into our sessions and as a result I am dreaming again and I love it.
I had purchased you DVD's to help me overcome my fear of public speaking which I stumbled across on the Internet. I informed my wife that I would be making this purchase as I had about six or seven presentations to present in the early part of November 07. She was to say the least very skeptical and thought that this would be a waste of my money and would give me a negative result.
I was desperate, I needed an edge to be ready to present. As I thought about my fears, they started to become worse as the time to present approached.
Once I received your DVD'S and workbook I felt a little more comfortable (just a little bit). However once I started participating in the program that you had set out in the workbook. I started to become psyched by the possibility that maybe; just maybe this might be the ticket to overcoming my fears once and for all. I listened earnestly and was as honest with myself as I could be. I really need for this program to work. So I listened to the lady who was narrating throughout the program and she impressed me. She gave me the confidence to go deep inside my beliefs and truly look at what could possibly be holding me back.
As the program continued I noticed that she and the group kept on repeating everything for each step. They were becoming annoying and I felt that my wife was right and I had been suckered by another psychobabble program. Oh I thought what a waste of money and now I won't be able to do my presentations because I won't be able to present and probably going loose my job and of course my self esteem will be destroyed. I thought I'm finished.
But the lady kept telling me to hang in there and see the program to the end which I did. Guess what, and don't ask how or why it did. But lord behold I became so full of confidence that I was actually looking forward to doing the presentations. I guess I had something to prove. A week later I did my first presentation to Approximately 120 people and believe it or not I actually enjoyed it. I'm not one to approve or endorse any product or program. But I feel so strongly about your program, that if it helped me to overcome my fears then I need to share this experience with you in the hope that it might be able to help someone else overcome their fear of public speaking.
All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Mitchell (Glenn) McDermid
"From the very first session I started to feel more positive about myself. As the negative beliefs were eliminated the change became more dramatic and I canít believe the resultsí Thank you Shelly, for your help and support."
Dermot, Dell Executive, Ireland
"After one conversation I had on the first day of the workshop a long-standing belief was eliminated. Three more beliefs were dealt with during the workshop. Now I experience possibility. It is as though there was a huge object in front of me that prevented me from moving forward. That object is gone!"
"Thank you so much for all your time and personal attention over the past several months! It's hard to believe that we've only known each other such a short time, considering all the areas of my life that you've made such a positive impact on. I had no idea that when I initially contacted you for help with the confusion and anxiety I was having in a new relationship, it would also result in such clarity in my roles as a mother, daughter and friend. My improved self-perception and esteem has made it so much easier to be the person I want to be, or to work more effectively at the changes I've identified as necessary, in these ever-important relationships. Instead of avoiding conflicts, or automatically assuming that I wasn't worthy, as I had always done historically, it's now much more natural for me to focus on resolving the issues and knowing that it's okay for me to have what I need and want!
I will always appreciate the benefits that your insight and support have brought to my relationships, as will my circle of family and friends!"

While the phrase ďa new paradigmĒ is over used and misused, there are no more appropriate words to describe the changes in the way that I view reality since we began unraveling the tangled mass of belief systems that I had developed since childhood. I no longer struggle with the desire to take control of my life and the feeling that I canít. Today I am exercising control of my life because I am the creator of my belief systems. The correlation between what I believe and where I am is very clear. Where I am today is the direct consequence of my decisions and actions of the past; my behavior. My behavior is directly dependent on what my perception of reality is. And my perceptions are merely my belief systems. As I began to change my belief systems, I began to act and feel differently. This has had the immediate consequence of causing me to make different decisions which has lead to different results in where I am today compared to three months ago. My biggest struggle today is choosing which course will best accomplish my immediate and long term goals.
Of course a real change in a personís life is measured by more than our feelings. I recently ran a P&L on my business for the last 12 weeks and compared it to the same time period for last year. My sales are up 29% but more importantly my net profit is up 200%. By eliminating the belief systems that were developed by an abused and neglected child and developing the belief systems of a healthy and mature adult, I have been able to make choices in my life that are getting me the results that I want in my life.
I have begun working on my first book and plan on having it finished by the end of the year. I have also begun to make long term plans for my business and my life which makes each day an exciting experience as I watch for opportunities to make things happen. But some of the most surprising changes have occurred in my personal life. Since this is the second marriage for my wife and I, we have both worked at making a strong and happy relationship. However, as my life has been changing these last few months I have been sharing with her not only the results but using the techniques to help her work through her own belief systems. Together we have been experiencing the same paradigm shift, individually and as a couple. The result has been that I have found myself experiencing a pleasure being married that has made every aspect of our life more enjoyable and rewarding. And I do mean Ďeveryí aspect.
All of this has caused me to look in amazement at where I am now compared to the first of the year when I was seriously considering changing careers and feeling very depressed about ever accomplishing the goals that I have so earnestly sought for so many years. Like others you have helped I have wished that I could have learned this years earlier. But I can choose to believe that I have lost Ďsomethingí because I did not have this knowledge before, or I can choose to believe that the timing is perfect and the future will be everything I want it to be. Since Iím going to believe something, I might as well choose what I believe and I choose to believe today is the best timing for where I am.
I sincerely appreciate your passion and commitment to help me and others make our lives better for ourselves and those around us. I donít think you could ever know how many people you will have touched over the years by your efforts.
"A few years ago I was stuck in a bad marriage. I was seriously depressed and thought I couldnít make it on my own. Knowing what I should do didnít seem to make any difference. Now, Iím out of that marriage and in charge of my life. I own my own home. The depression has lifted totally. Iím emancipated and empowered. Iím no longer stuck."
Ruth, television producer
"I used to always worry about upsetting the apple cart. I was unsure of myself, afraid of rejection. I took everything personally, which got in the way of getting more business. I was frequently afraid to act. Now, when I think about doing things, I usually just do them. Either Iím not uncomfortable or, when I am, the feeling no longer stops me. I have enough confidence in what Iím doing that I no longer fear rejection. I had talked about opening a new office for years but hadnít. Now I have and itís led to a lot more business for us."
Jim, owner of architectural firm
"I used to be bulimic. I felt inadequate, totally not comfortable or okay with myself. I didnít feel loveable. I couldnít relate to people at all. I felt alienated. Today Iím centered and focused. My perception of myself and people is totally changed. Iím not overwhelmed by a need to be thin. When I read a beauty magazine I donít feel inadequate or not okay with who I am. Iím able to be real with people. Now I can love people and allow others to love me."
Amy, college student
"When I was in third grade I came home one day and started doing my math homework. Out of frustration, I threw down my pencil and said, ĎIím stupid in math.í Shelly Lefkoe, who was there visiting my mom, turned to me and asked me what happened that led me to the conclusion I was stupid in math. I told her about how my teacher had put up all the names on the board of people who scored low on a pop quiz. I got very upset about this and concluded I was stupid in math. Shelly did the LM Process with me and I eliminated that belief. Now I am in advanced placement math with Aís and Bís."
Elizabeth, 13-year-old student
"My six-year old son seemed to be going through a difficult stage and I was finding myself angry, frustrated, and upset whenever I spent time with him. Far from being the loving, supportive parent I had always hoped and expected to be, I was miserable, ashamed, and depressed because I hated the tense and angry person I turned into when I was with my son. I was able to identify and eliminate several of the beliefs that had been preventing me from being the kind of mother that I wanted to be. The results have been dramatic. Now, behavior from my son that would have triggered my anger in the past no longer does so. The tension is gone from my relationship with my son. I know Iím a better mother than I was. Iím so grateful that I found The Lefkoe Method before my son grew any older. We easily might have drifted apart and become one of the millions of dysfunctional families we all know."
Stapley, writer and mother
Good morning Shelly, I just wanted to update you from my last email in September and to let you know how the sessions with you have truly changed my life.
The last session I had with you was in May and here we are in December already.† And boy do I have things to tell you.
These last 6 months have really been a discovery of who I truly am, what's important to me in life and where I want to go with my life.† I've had some amazing things happen after my 5 or 6 sessions with you.† I gradually began to change and before I realized it, my mindset had really†changed, particularly on†how I felt about myself and†how I responded to life with all of it's ups and downs.† By the way, they're mainly 'ups' now.† Life doesn't really feel like a struggle anymore and I feel like a huge burden had been lifted from my soul.
I†embarked on a journey of soul searching and fully immersed myself in different books and CDs to help me understand why 'we†do the things we do' and how the conscious and unconscious mind play a role in that'.† This has always been a keen interest for me and I am thrilled with what I've learned and how it has affected me in such a positive way.
I've done some reading by Joe Vitale on removing limiting beliefs, and moved on to listen to Dr. Robert Anthony's The Secret to Deliberate Creation helping me to understand more about the way the mind works (these CDs really turned around my way of thinking).
I've made an incredible connection with my soul and trust my instincts to help guide me along in life.† I don't fear making decisions anymore and feel confident about the decisions I do make.† I know that if I allow myself to stay connected with myself that I will see the way to a greater life for myself every day.
You have opened my eyes to help me realize that my self limiting beliefs were created by me and that they could easily be replaced with more empowering beliefs.
I'm now starting a course called 'The Sedona Method' (again about understanding and removing limiting beliefs).† I've had this program for about 3†or 4 few years, but†I'm now ready to complete the program, I no longer put things off that I really want to do and I'm truly amazed at what I've done over the last few months.
Just to give you an idea of what I have accomplished over the last few months (this is incredible since most of my†life, I've started and stopped so many things, never actually completing anything, but wow what a difference a few sessions make):
- I've created a reading room for myself, sold the guest bed, moved hide-a-bed up to the room, organized my book shelf with all of my inspirational books and CDs
- I organized my book shelf in my office, have de-cluttered and organized my filing cabinet and am 85% finished with clearing my desk and office of paper; I only keep material that help me become a better business woman.
-†I read two books on Neuro Linguistic Programming
- I read a book on flipping houses
-†I read three books by Joe Vitale, which ultimately led me to work of Dr. Robert Anthony
-†I listened to a 6 CD set by Dr. Robert Anthony and transcribed 40 pages of notes on these CDs (The Secret to Deliberate Creation)
-†I'm close to†completing a CD on Feng Shui for my office, which I've had for almost a year
-†In December alone, I've spent 2 hours de-cluttering closets and spent 4 hours de-cluttering and organizing my basement, I've created a space for my fitness equipment, have enjoyed working out 3 times a week, have improved my eating habits and am about to complete 3 or 4 more major projects before the year is done
Wow, when I look at this list, I know I can accomplish anything.† These projects 'had been' on my mind making me feel miserable because I couldn't get myself motivated enough to get started and then actually finish what I started.† I realize that motivation wasn't the problem, it was my old way of thinking and believing that I either wasn't good enough or that I really couldn't succeed in life because there was too much holding me back.† These things were heavy burdens weighing me down, but not anymore, I'm so excited to get things done, get my life organized†and continue to get my head and house in order (ha-ha).
I'm really excited about my life and just wanted to share that with you, since I believe that you were a huge contributor towards my success†in helping me to realize that there's more than just my stories and the past to dwell on.† I would say that I am 80 - 100% living in the NOW, no longer worrying about the past or what the future may bring.††I know that I am the creator of my own destiny and future and I can create any kind of future that I desire.
I finally have a peace within me that I've been looking for, for most of my life and I owe a great deal†of that you to and to Morty.† So, thank you for being such an incredible wonderful woman and for believing in me and encouraging me to believe that there was something better for me.
You are truly a blessing in my life and I will always remember you and what you have contributed to my life.†
So, Shelly, from my heart, I thank you, thank you, thank you & I love you, love you, love you!
