The Unorthodox Training Protocol that banished stress, worry, overwhelm, anxiety, frustration, sadness, anger, and even depression in a matter of weeks...

Was I really going to be this miserable for the rest of my life???

I was a 32-year-old, healthy, charismatic business owner (a martial arts school owner to be exact).

Married. 4 kids.

On the outside, everything looked amazing.

I was a “good” person (whatever THAT meant).

But on the inside, I was depressed, anxious, and had been suicidal off and on for nearly 20 years. I was addicted to several things, yelling at my kids a lot, and couldn't seem to focus enough to get any real work done.

Every day was a rollercoaster.

Despite everything I had tried (we're talking 10s of thousands of dollars and years of work), no one seemed to have a way to leave that constant struggle behind for good.

I was supposed to just "manage" it and "cope" with it "like everybody else".

But that sounded like a miserable way to live.

“Better to end it now,” I thought. 

“Better than to spend the next 50 or 60 years going through this every single day.”

That thought actually scared me.

Even more because for the first time in my life I actually a plan in my head. 

Not a great plan, but still a plan.

Then a little voice inside made me hesitate.

“I don’t really want to DIE," it said.

"I just want to ENJOY my life without it being a struggle every single day to feel good. I know no one seems to have a way to do that. I know people say this is 'just a fact of life,' but there HAS to be a way out!”

And there was!

A beautiful, simple way to finally let go of all that pain and simply be happy no matter what was happening around me.

That life-saving thought gave me just enough courage to figure it out.

Took me a while.

Even longer to really get the hang of it, and I don't want you to hit all the same frustrating dead ends.

So, if you're okay with it, I'm going to cut all those years of trial and error down to a simple 3-week process for you.

You open to that? Cool.

It all started with 2 simple questions:

What if I am the one creating all these bad feelings?

What if I can actually choose NOT to have them anymore... no matter what else is going on?

I know that idea can feel impossible. So maybe not "right at this moment". It certainly wasn’t for ME when I asked these questions. 

But just consider the possibility...

What if that could change?

That's what I wanted to know.

What if it is possible?

And what if it isn't actually that complicated to do, either?

What if the answer is quite literally right under (and also behind) your nose but you just were never taught where to look for it?

Well, I looked. And guess what I found?

... boogers – that's what my son wanted me to say... and yes, those do hang out in noses but we're talking about something waaaaaaaayyyyyy more important than that...

HOW to finally be free of the whole struggle and WHY anyone else can do it, too!

No, that's not pie-the-sky talk, either.

My name is Bob Gardner, founder of The Freedom Specialist, where for the past few years we've actually tested this unorthodox protocol with hundreds of people to help them with:

  • behavioral addictions
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • inability to focus
  • productivity problems

  • OCD
  • bad habits
  • low self-esteem
  • broken relationships
  • work stress
  • identity crises

  • suicidal ideation
  • anger issues
  • social anxiety
  • guilt
  • shame
  • and more...

I've even had everything I discovered vetted by professional counselors and therapists because I wanted to remove all doubt about the possibility of freedom.

Here's what they are saying...

What Professionals Are Saying About The Freedom Specialist

Misty McIntyre LMFT is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Sex Therapist, and Georgia board certified.
Paul De Francis is the Director at AZ Therapy and Healthcare Management Services. He has piloted addiction and mental health programs for various religious and health institutions.
Chase Sayer CSW is a Clinical Social Worker working with people who struggle with these very issues.

Like you, nobody TAUGHT me this stuff.

It's not like our elementary school teachers (OR parents for that matter) were ever schooled in:

  • WHAT emotions are,
  • WHERE they come from, OR
  • HOW to retrain them so you don't stay down in the dumps forever.

Mine certainly weren't. 

So after decades of struggling and searching for answers...

feeling like I was always getting the short end of the stick...

trying all the different hacks and quick fixes and therapies I could find...

I had had enough!

No one seemed to have a simple, reliable answer that I use by myself at 3 o'clock in the morning when all the urgent care centers were closed.

So I created one – a simple, practical way to give myself RAPID control over how I felt…

  • usually within seconds
  • without having to overthink it
  • without having to always go find a root cause and get rid of it (though, I figured out how to do that REALLY quickly, too!)
  • without having to “suck it up” or “take it like a man”, and
  • without having to just wait it out or cope with it, or worse, go to addictive behaviors to make myself feel better.

It’s part of what I call Neuro-Release Training™ – learning to release and retrain your own nervous system so that feeling good becomes second nature... it starts to happen by itself.

Obviously, I tested this on myself first.

Then with a few people who just wanted some help and had tried everything else.

Finally, with hundreds of personal clients who have literally begun loving their life again. All from these simple, practical ways to retrain the 3 different types of emotion patterns in the nervous system.

They gave people the power to feel different without having to struggle and suffer through life anymore.

And now I get to wake up to messages like this...

Here's what I discovered:

There are ONLY 3 key emotional patterns you need to retrain

Not hundreds... whew!

Just 3 main types of emotion that control how you feel and how you act:

  1. Your Mood
  2. Your Reactions 
  3. Your Worries

Once you've gotten the basics of how to retrain them, all the other little emotions will start to crumble at the mere sight of you. 

Or in the words of Kung Fu Panda, "You're enemies will go blind from sheer awesomeness!" 

Let's break them down 1 at a time.

First, master your MOOD 

Everybody has a mood.

Think of it like the flavor of your life – the soup you get to drink all day.

Some moods taste great, some not-so-great, but ALL of them are linked to your circadian rhythms – how you are used to feeling on an average day.

Maybe you feel,

  • “I’m just not a morning person,”
  • "I'm always stressed-out or 'blah' after lunch"
  • "My mind is always racing at 100 mph before bed. It makes me anxious."

Those are habits! Thoughts and emotions that create your mood... and they can be changed!

With a bit of attention and simple, strategic shifts at those exact points in the day, you can use your body to teach your mind better habits so that...

... your mood changes without you even trying anymore!

If you do it right, you’ll notice a HUGE difference within a couple weeks like this guy did...

Second, redirect your REACTIONS

How would you normally react to these situations?

  • someone cutting you off in traffic
  • getting some tragic or upsetting news
  • the kids dumping a huge mess on the floor right after you finished cleaning up.
  • someone accusing you of something whether you did it or not
  • being unfairly treated

Or if you are dealing with anxiety, how would you handle it when:

  • it feels like every little thing is setting you off, or
  • you are just sitting in your living room and suddenly have strong anxiety or random dark thoughts coming out of nowhere.

Most people react to these like they would an allergy... 

... only instead of GETTING a rash, they DO something rash. 

But what if your reactions to situations and emotions made your life better?

I don’t think anyone can guarantee you will never react to anything ever again.

Even the ex-Russian operatives I trained with still react to stuff... and they've seen just about everything!!!

The difference is that they have shortened the time it takes to turn their reactions into something positive and powerful.

That's why it always seems like they have an edge and are cool under fire.

They aren't. 

They are just faster at using their reactions to their advantage.

And once you've unlocked that deceptively simple skill, it'll only take you a second or two to be free of stuff that might have bugged you for hours, days, or even weeks before. 

That's when it starts to feel like the change is happening on its own like it did with this fellow...

Third, wallop your WORRIES

Worries are often worse than reactions because they can get you even when nothing is happening.

People with anxiety and OCD deal with these on a huge scale all the time, but even small ones can eat at you.

A worry is any situation that just THINKING about it makes you feel even a little bit nervous, anxious, stressed, scared, sad, unsafe, or emotional in any way.

  • addicts call them “triggers”.
  • people with PTSD might call them “traumatic memories”.
  • a housewife might call it a “pet peeve”.
  • an athlete or public speaker might call them “pre-game jitters”.
  • a 2-year-old might call it “a nightmare” or a “scary dream”.
  • and any US citizen might call it "the IRS" (bwahaha... seriously, though, stop laughing)

Worries are fairly easy to start changing but can feel overwhelming at first.

So we start small, especially if you've been through some really rough spots in your life.

The key is to hack how your brain pieces these situations together and separate the feeling from the situation (specifically with the hippocampus, but there are some other fancy brain structures involved).

It sounds complicated, but isn't very difficult.

None of this is. Just takes a bit of focus and practice at the beginning. Once you've really separated the feelings and retrained your mind those situations that USED to bother you won't anymore... for good! 

Sometimes that happens gradually, sometimes immediately, but either way it happens like it did for these two...

Jeremy deleted a bad memory from his youth
Entrepreneur got rid of stress about his to-do list

Now I get to put on my Captain Planet voice for a second (for those of you that grew up in the 80’s, I guess... )

Once you’ve learned to do this, “THE POWER IS YOURS!”

(My wife is probably rolling her eyes right now.)

It used to be that I could only teach this to my 1-on-1 clients, in person and over the phone to make sure they got it right. But I’ve refined it a LOT over the years to the point that...

You can actually DO this in as little as 20 days!

I say “DO” here on purpose. Not “LEARN”.

I’m not interested in you snarfing down some fancy new factoids or tidbits of information (yes, you’ll get some of those).

I’m interested in you ACTUALLY changing your life within the next 3 weeks.

I want you to know the power that comes from being able to feel happy and free whenever you want. 

So I created a way to help you do that...


Choose Your Own Emotion™

20 Days to Being the Boss of How You Feel

This self-paced adventure finally gives you all the control you've been wanting!

You get to choose how you feel...

how fast you go...

... and what to do with all the free time you have now that you're NOT stressed out, anxious, worried, or depressed all the time.

Then you can watch as other areas of your life start improving almost automatically

At least, that's what happened with this student...

Imagine waking up in the morning feeling so good that you want to send a text like that!

Noticing that you are...

  • thinking more clearly
  • having REAL, deep talk with family and close friends
  • making better decisions at work or school
  • having more energy and motivation in the day
  • feeling happy without needing a reason
  • not bothered by little things as much
  • not worried about what others think as much
  • laughing more
  • more productive with your time
  • not stressing out about deadlines or to do lists
  • smiling naturally and more often
  • able to sit and relax without feeling guilty
  • able to feel loved without needing to measure up
  • finishing big projects without needing to be nagged or "motivated"
  • actually enjoying the little things in life

... all because you handled the one BIG thing that was stopping you. You learned to –

BE THE BOSS of how you feel!

Then it won't matter if a Sicilian poisons both drinks because you'll be immune to it... just like the man in black. (Princess Bride anyone?)

No matter what's going on with

  • your bank account
  • your business
  • your marriage or friendships
  • your kids
  • even your health

you'll be the action hero in your own life... joking about the weather while taking down the bad guys.

Yes, it takes a little bit of focus in the beginning. (I can't turn you into a spy overnight and iocane powder is NOT involved!)

But then it becomes second-nature and you don't have to think about it anymore.

So even if it took you 30 days...

or 60 days...

or even 6 months to nail this simple skillset, you would get to be happy on auto-pilot for the rest of your life!!! What would THAT be like???

Is that worth 20 - 30 minutes a day of focus right now?

It's taken me nearly 30 years of personal experience, research, and feedback from 100's of clients to make this possible for you.

I’ve gotta warn you, though...

You need to be prepared for some corny jokes... (in case you haven't noticed)

Also some incredibly simple ways to feel loads better...

... and possibly a few references to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (not gonna lie. I still think they’re cool).

Be prepared for knowing exactly –

WHY these emotions are there
WHERE they come from, and
WHAT to do so you can put them behind you.

You’ll get:

  • Simple, practical exercises
  • Easy-to-follow written and video instructions
  • Constant accountability throughout the program
  • Email support
  • And you can be done in as little as 20 days! (or take longer if you like)** 

If you have questions along the way, you can always ask.

We want you to win here because there’s no point in continuing to suffer when there is such a simple and practical way to put your life back into your own hands.


How quickly do you want to let go of the stress, anxiety and overwhelm that everyone thinks is “just a fact of life”?

How goodly (not badly) do you want to wake up in the morning and experience something like this...

Or this...

Because in just under 3 weeks, you can be well on your way to that!*** 

To get started, simply

  1. click the button to enroll (below)
  2. fill out your billing info
  3. hit the submit button, and...

Your adventure begins!

You’ll get an email from me giving you access to Level 1 and your first training adventure!


You can stick with what you know (or don't know).

You may or may not figure this out eventually. Some people do.

The only question is time...

If you don't finally become the boss of how you feel soon, something will eventually snap. It happens all the time.

First, it'll be little things – Irritable with coworkers, yelling at the kids, constantly scrolling social media or YouTube.

Then come the addictions and massive mood swings.

Then your relationships start to fall apart until you're that mom who's kids hate talking to her

... or that dad who's never home and missed all the most important family moments

... or that business owner who has it all together on the outside but feels like a fraud on the inside and eventually crumbles under the pressure

Until finally you lose everything you cared about because no one ever taught you how to really be the boss of how you feel like this.

Now, I get that this might be a tad extreme, and I'm not wishing that on you at all.

But if the ONLY thing that happened to you was that NOTHING changed, would you be okay with that?

Would you be okay feeling the way you do now for the rest of your life?

If so, that's awesome. Run with it.

If not, this is your Disney fast pass where you skip all those years of struggle and finally catch the ride of your life

Just click the button to sign up, submit your billing info, and keep your hands and arms inside the rollercoaster at all times!

I look forward to the laughs and to your freedom,

Bob “The Turtle Fan” Gardner

PS – Want a glimpse of just how fun this to experience???

I recorded a real-time audio of Jacob being blown away by how powerful AND enjoyable the program was.

This is what you get to look forward to...

** Because the program is self-paced, you can take as long as you like. If you set aside 20-30 min/day to work on the program, 20 days is a very easily attainable goal. If you want to take weekends/holidays off, it’ll take a little longer.

*** Everyone progresses at their own pace here. If you have real horrors in your life that need deeper coaching or therapy, this program will give you an amazing support to those processes. But it is no substitute for deeper work to find and resolve deeper issues.
