Re-Discovering our true potential lies at the core of Acres of Diamonds. In a world clouded by fear, doubt, stress and anxiety, we’re on a mission to end mental suffering through mental fitness and the development of emotionally intelligent leadership. We need this more than ever, and the journey to discovering your own acres of diamonds awaits. Are you ready?
Imagine consuming McDonald’s for every meal—how would your body feel? Now, consider feeding your mind the equivalent, what we’ll call “Mental McDonald’s”—how would that make you feel? Every day, we’re bombarded with fear, comparison, and doubt from various outlets, including news, social media, and out of date leadership practices that lack emotional intelligence. This constant consumption creates a breeding ground for stress, anxiety, and the belief of not being “enough”. With these thoughts circulating the minds of our managers, teammates, and work colleagues, how may this be affecting the success of your business?
Our approach is aimed at increasing 2 areas, emotional intelligence, and mental fitness. We often forget we are humans first then employees, managers, owners, and CEO’s. We are emotional beings that have human needs to be seen, heard, and understood. If we don’t feel that, we will underachieve in every area of our lives.
Mental Fitness is our ability to navigate life’s challenges with more emotional resilience and curiosity. Much like physical fitness, it requires regular training and conditioning to enhance cognitive, emotional, and psychological well-being. Simply put, the more mentally fit you are the more adversity you can handle.
Introducing the Acres of Diamonds mental fitness program, a combination of emotionally intelligent leadership and mental fitness development, featuring the renowned Positive Intelligence (PQ) program developed by NY times best-selling author and Stanford Lecturer Shirzad Chamine. We guide clients through a customized program focusing on three critical areas of thinking: negative, neutral, and positive patterns. This unique program supports individuals in regaining their focus, identifying negative patterns of thought and redirecting them, all backed by scientific insight and data.

What to Expect
“Acres of Diamonds positively changed my outlook on life. I gained new perspectives and the confidence to conquer everyday challenges. I recommend Acres of Diamonds to anyone looking to improve their mental fitness and gain an edge in their way of thinking.”
“My self-confidence and belief in myself and my ability to control my circumstances grew tremendously. I have also developed a higher level of understanding of myself, my mental habits, and my thought patterns. Lastly, I have improved as an active listener, and I truly feel more confident in my ability to lead myself and others in all areas of my life.”
“I am more confident in my personal relationships and my work environment. I have the feeling of wanting more for myself and not letting my fears and anxieties hold me back. Acres of Diamonds is an organization that provides a safe space for individuals who dare to take that leap into personal development and I hope that others challenge themselves to do just that.”
“Being asked “well what is enough?” was something that resonates in my mind daily. Being comfortable talking about emotional topics to basically strangers was something that wow’d me. What I deal with in my everyday life has gotten easier and more enjoyable all thanks to my Acres of Diamond group.”
“Having such a solid, supportive, and caring group of people made the biggest difference in being able to be vulnerable and talk about things openly. I was able to better understand myself and the way I think/process every day happenings. Thanks to AOD I am more confident in myself and wanting to spread more mental fitness awareness to others!”
“Through the Acres of Diamonds Mental Fitness program I was taught the importance of mental fortitude on preserving a positive life outlook. It can be difficult to find this positive outlook sitting in traffic or working a disheartening desk job every day. However, with the techniques I learned through this program I have become more equipped to ground myself in the moment rather than focusing on the anxiety of the past or future.”
“I noticed a positive change in the way I manage my stress, the way I react to things I cannot control and the relationships I have with myself as well as others. The course I took helped me become a calmer version of myself and I learned how to think more rationally through self-awareness. Overall I am a better partner, daughter, sister, friend, neighbor, etc. because of this course.”
“Acres of diamonds helped me to see the small little enemies that I had and learned how to deal with them in a way that I wouldn't beat myself up over. Learning how to see these feelings and take control over my mindset helped me in the end of moving on and not letting it get to me as it used to.”
“I became more self-aware of the negative self-talk hijacking my thinking and daily interactions. I have been able to sit alone with my thoughts and sort things out without having to move around and interrupt the pattern due to the unease of the Saboteurs in my head. My daily life is more focused and productive and I'm able to put myself first, without guilt, and move forward instead of photocopying my day. Essentially, going forward instead of in circles.”
Adam Morgan Sr.
“I have taken a few Acres of Diamonds courses and truthfully, both my personal life and business life have improved significantly. AOD has given me the tools to be more self-aware of my choices, words and emotions, as well as given me the confidence to work through life challenges instead of giving up when it gets hard. Acres of Diamonds has become, and will continue to be, a big part of my life. I wish I had something like this years ago.”
“I grew more confident in my abilities to achieve my professional and personal goals. I was bold and spontaneous in applying for a position I initially thought I wasn't qualified enough for. I now understand my worth when it comes to building healthy relationships and can set clear expectations so that I do not settle for less than what I deserve.”
“It allows you to realize that life has so much more potential, that it is so beautiful and it doesn’t mean that you’re not going to encounter tough times. It doesn’t mean you’re not going to be stressed, it doesn’t mean that bad things won’t happen but it gives you the tools to get you to a point where you can take the next step to overcome and be stronger for it, and I think that’s what I didn’t know I needed but I got out of 6-7 short weeks. It’s like that light that you always knew was inside of you and you get validation from good people who want to make a difference and want to make an impact and that is life changing so I love you guys and I mean it.”
“The leadership and guidance in this program is remarkable. Through this work I learned tools to help me ground myself powerfully and increase my emotional intelligence which impacted my leadership positively. The program provided a tool to help me keep metrics for success, a space for evaluation and weekly coaching.”
“For me, greater awareness of how my thoughts influence my actions, understanding that I can implement some simple strategies to change negative thought patterns that surface from time to time. I have challenged myself to continue working on the strategies learned through the program and I have noticed a distinct shift in my thinking and approach to life overall that I truly believe has brought more meaning and joy to my life. Thank you to the team at Acres of Diamonds - life changing experience indeed!”
“This has been one of the most incredible journeys of my life. It has shaped a better, more positive mental state in me. It is absolutely entertaining, it is fun, it is emotional, and it is extremely life-changing.”
“Acres of Diamonds has been life changing! I give myself grace and forgiveness when things aren't perfect. I am kinder to my husband and understand that he does not have the "restless" quality that I have. I am more aware of my restless and am learning how it impacts my productivity. I am so grateful to have been part of this program, and look forward to how it impacts me positively in the future.”
“Before joining my first AOD mastermind group I was completely unaware to the fact that my thoughts were running my life, and that I could choose to think differently. Now that I can control my perception, I can control my actions... and that awareness has helped me to change my life immeasurably over the course of just a few months. Unencumbered by the survival mind.”
