I Believe in ME! is a youth empowerment program designed to share the concepts behind living more consciously and deliberately to create the life that one wants. Created by Rebecca Psigoda, Certified Infinite Possibilities Trainer, this program is based on the principles outlined in the New York Times best-selling book, Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living Your Dreams by Mike Dooley. The intention of this program is to show youth how powerful they are and that if they can use their imagination, believe in themselves, and follow a few simple steps every day, they can create the life they want.

Meet Your Facilitator
As a child, Michael was the victim of being bullied. Even though he felt the pain and knew how deep this cut, he was still oblivious to the deep impact those words would leave on how he felt about himself. As he grew in to adulthood, he didn’t realize how he buried this pain within, negating his self-worth – all he knew was that he wasn’t happy and didn’t feel like he fit in.
This is why I Believe in Me! means so much to him, and is committed to sharing this powerful work; To inspire young people to see their potential and believe in themselves exactly as they are.
Michael has spent the last 15 years working on himself and learning to love himself for all of who he is. Today, he is a Life Coach, Health Coach and Life-Cycle Celebrant with multiple certifications and global professional experience. His passion is to create the space for all people to uncover their life’s vision and “reinvent” themselves by creating a path to their dreams.
He is on a mission to help people live life to the fullest, confident, healthy, excited, and with the happiness and joy they deserve.
His mantra is… F.L.Y. ~ First Love Yourself!
