Are You Ready For A Prison Break?

When you take an honest look at your life, are you living the life you really want, or the one you have been given?

I want to invite you to join me at the Marriott City Center in Newport News, VA from April 20-23, 2023 for my small group retreat - Learning To Live From The Inside-Out! 

Retreat is limited to 15 participants whose commitment is to not be blocked away from their appointed success. You will become part of the 2% that learn how to live their life free from the prison cell the "old you" has made you feel is the life you are here to have!

Here's My Question To You...

When you take an honest look at your life, are you living the life you really want, or the one you have been given?

For 40 years, I have talked with people about where they are in their life, what they are doing with their life, and what they wish their life was like. It hurts to see people who are trapped within an existence that doesn’t allow them to experience the success their life is really designed to achieve.

Feeling trapped in your life is like living in a personal prison where you are the Warden, the Guard, and the Prisoner!

You are the Warden, because whatever you choose to do with your life, you are in charge of. No decision happens without you giving yourself permission to do it!

You are the Guard, because the emotional restrictions you place on your life are the result of who is watching over you to make sure you are living by the rules for your life that you are following!

You are the Prisoner, because you are exactly in your life where you want to be! This is the prison YOU have designed for your life.

You Are The Person Your Choices Have Made You Into

You Are In A War With Yourself

The Prison you live in is because YOU:

P provide the restrictions that create the cell

R run from life, rather than live life

I inside you lack the foundation of strength

S stories are all about what you “can’t do”

O others design the blueprint you are living

N notice, but don’t confront your behavior

Shifting Terrain

Life is made up of a terrain that is always shifting. Every time it shifts, there is a choice you have to make. That choice is controlled by whom you listen to, whom you give control to. Yes, others affect the decision you make, but when it comes to the final choice, YOU are the one who will make it!!

Internal Battle

Look at your life with an honest set of eyes! Are you living the life you REALLY want, or the life you FEEL is the one you are forced to live?

There are only two foundations you can build your life on – belief, trust, and faith, or doubt, worry, and uncertainty.

The one you choose draws the blueprint for your life.

Choices are something YOU make for your life! The choice is either a “reaction” or a “response” to what you are facing.

A “reaction” is the front gate to the Prison you are entering. It is where you choose to live from Yesterday to Today. That is where the “Old You” lives. The “Old You” uses yesterday to put you in your cell and keep you locked away from success. It is controlled by the “Old You” continually throwing all the perceived negatives about the life you have had at you with such emotional force, it locks you in a cell without windows. You can’t see anything but “wrongs” your life has been handed. When that happens, all you can do is stay locked away from the success you could have with your life.  

What’s the behavioral design that goes with this self-accepted cell? You live with the cell locked because of your self-doubt, your constant worry, and your uncertainty that  won’t allow you to see beyond the bars you are looking through.  

The other choice you have is to “Respond” to what your life is handed. You look at the front gate to a personal prison and decide “this is not what I want for my life!” You know you have a choice. You realize you were not placed on this earth to be a prisoner to what the “Old You” wants you to only see as the “wrongs” that have locked you away.

You listen to that “New You” that says, “YOU are free to choose, free to live from today to tomorrow, free to soar and experience all the greatness of your life.

With the “New You” as the architect of your life, you draw your blueprint based on your belief, your trust, and your faith in YOURSELF!!

Are you ready for a prison break?

Become part of the 2% that learn how to live their life free from the prison cell.

Here is the living life lesson you must learn in order to break free of the self-prison you have built for yourself...

When you are living with the “Old You” as the designer of your life, the blueprint you draw is one where you are designed to live from the Outside-In! Every choice you make is drawn from your doubt, worry, and uncertainty, which all come from your connection to yesterday.  

With the “New You” as the architect of your life, you draw your blueprint based on your belief, your trust, and your faith in YOURSELF!!

This means your life is not a life of freedom, but one of handcuffs and shackles. This will emotionally keep you looking at the perceived wrongs of yesterday. This becomes your emotional tool to keep you trapped in a life without a success window to look through. That is the mission of the “Old You”!! The “Old You” wants you to live with reasons, with excuses, with justifications about why your life is the way it is.

Here is the frightening part of this – this “Old You” blueprint represents 98% of people!!

You don’t have to live like that. You have another choice. You can break free of that blueprint! You can pardon yourself and have the freedom to soar!

When you are living with the “New You” as the architect of your life, you can design, draw a blueprint for your life that replaces the Prison with a blueprint where there is no self-restrictive cell of limitations. You are free to live your Life from the Inside-Out!!

With a solid foundation of Belief in yourself, YOU can design the life of success you want; YOU can design your life through the successes you have had; YOU will see your life through a path that keeps you Living Forward.

With a solid foundation of Trust, you open the gate to supporting your Belief through seeing your talents, shoring up your life with positive experiences, and having the strength to live your life through the front windshield, rather than the review mirror. You will resist doubt and worry with your Belief and Trust!

With that solid foundation of Belief and Trust, you turn uncertainty into a Faith that says, “I Can, Because I Will!” You will look forward with Belief and Trust that turns the unknown into an adventure filled with the freedom to Live Forward experiencing all the success there is for your life!

Richard Flint, CSP

Richard here! I speak to corporate and public audiences, and address more than 200,000 people each year. Have written 19 books and 100+ programs, and as one of America's top personal development coaches, have been changing lives for over 40 years.

Don't tell anyone, but before I wore the colorful shirts, I wore suits. One day, while shopping in Las Vegas, I wandered into a men's store that specializes in exotic shirts. The shirts, with all their bright colors and different patterns, have become my trademark. To me, my shirts represent my spirit and creative energy.

I've invested 40+ years helping companies and individuals remove the restrictions that have held them hostage from achieving the success that is yours. Since the day I started this awesome journey of helping people, I have always wanted three things for them – to be better, to be smarter, and to stand taller.

May sound strange, but there is “more” for every person, and I want to use my gifts and talents to help them find their pathway to improvement. From the age of 16, I have been on my own and have had to discover my unique talents and gifts, which has allowed me to build my confidence, my mental strength, and connect where I am to where I want to be. This has allowed me to manage the shifting terrain that my life has gone through. My greatest strength is you cannot present me with any problem I haven’t helped someone work through.

Testimonials From Other Small Group Retreat Attendees

"This retreat is Amazing! Richard gives everything he has when he coaches. I love how he asks questions that are so thought provoking, yet so simplistic...I so hope I can come back to another retreat - so amazing. This is the best investment that I have done for myself and would highly recommend to others."

Fanny Horn

"This was an amazing experience. The open floor was definitely different and was a great twist, as it allowed us to see how different we all think and help us grow through communication. Richard is an exceptional person that has the gift of leading people to understand themselves through simple questions."

Walter Gregory
