Have you heard about the Love, Courage, & Achievement (LCA) Project? Author and Trainer Randy Ferguson started it twenty years ago after going through a difficult divorce. He used this challenging time to learn about himself and grow into his potential. As he learned, he began sharing his knowledge with others through workshops followed by seven week support programs.
He chose to call what he was doing the Love, Courage & Achievement Project because he says, “Love is a state of being that opens us to joy and abundance. When we are in this state, our quality of life goes through the roof. Courage and achievement come in as we step out of our comfort zone to realize our dreams.”
It sounds simple enough, so what gets in the way? Fear. Our culture teaches us to build walls around our hurts so we don’t have to face them. We then go out of our way to avoid situations that might trigger them. Ironically, resisting these hurts gives them power over us. It also creates distance and separation as we compulsively try to prove the opposite of what we fear.
Just think of a person who grew up hearing she wasn’t good enough. As an adult, she might try to prove her worth by becoming a perfectionist or amassing material possessions. However, without self-love on the inside, all these activities just reinforce her belief that she isn’t good enough. Consequently, she winds up in a vicious cycle of doing more and more to prove her worth.
So how do Randy and his LCA team help people break this vicious cycle? The answer might surprise you. In a consulting interview offered free of charge, they help you uncover core issues like “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not loveable.” They then teach you how to open your heart and fully accept yourself with these core issues. When you do, the issues lose power over you.
Remember the woman who felt she wasn’t good enough? After being in the LCA Project, she laughs about this core issue now. She can laugh because she knows it’s not who she really is. When the issue comes up, she acknowledges it and then gives herself the space to respond rather than react. She’s found that when she responds differently, new opportunities arise—including new relationships.
Randy says that’s the key to this work. “It’s understanding that it’s not about finding the right person, it’s about being the right person.” When this woman embraced herself with her core issue, the man of her dreams literally showed up on her front doorstep!
Stories like this are why Randy and his LCA team do what they do. When people let go of false beliefs, they are free to make a difference in their relationships and the world; a difference that comes from having the Love, Courage, & Achievement to lead an extraordinary life.

“What can I say about the LCA workshop? … What makes this workshop so distinct … are the “Tools.” In other workshops my “core issues” have been brought to the surface, but this is the first time I have been given tools to deal with them effectively and permanently.” Thank you Randy! Donna Herman
