This was one of the best training programs I was ever sent to by my employers. I probably should acknowledge a debt to Graeber, Simmons & Cowan’s office manager, Kelly Halls, for making me attend this damn seminar. I’ve used things I learned in this program to alter my behavior ever since. I still can’t catch that horse every time, but at least I know it’s the horse that needs catching, not someone else making me do something.
The seminar is still available on Amazon in CD form. I recommend it for anyone who thinks they might need to get a handle on their emotions. It was very helpful to me. I have mentioned this before on the blog, I used REBT therapy to quit smoking and to stop eating french fries by relating a desire for these things to smells related to them that I find repulsive. For cigarettes I selected the smell of a nightclub when you open the doors to clean it after a heavy night of partying. The combined smell of stale cigarette smoke, alcohol and vomit should be enough to put you off anything. For french fries I used the smell of a restaurant grease pit. Turns my stomach just thinking about it.

I have no idea why this subject was on my Facebook wall on January 31, 2015. I probably went-off-the-handle with somebody. I failed to catch that horse before it got away. It’s a never-ending battle. I took the course back in the early 1990’s and I’ve referenced the course material ever since whenever I feel that my emotional control is slipping again. I mentioned this course more than once on Facebook.
When I opened the article today (5/20/21) I noticed that the video trailer has gone missing again. This is the second or third time this has happened. I put a bug in the ears of the owners of the content (Career Track/Pryor Learning) just to see if they would put out some official trailers and digital guide books so that I don’t have to keep referencing pirated material. If I hear anything back I’ll update the article and this postscript again.
The Tom Miller from the program is this Tom Miller on Goodreads. There are several of them there, this should eliminate the confusion. He is not the Tom Miller linked to the book on Google books. Nice one there, Google. I can not find him on Wikipedia either and that is a shame because the man made a big difference in my life and I’m sure that his training impacted many other lives as well. He should not be relegated to obscurity.
