I help people overcome anxiety so they can confidently fulfill life's purpose.

Fear and worry attempt to block us from fulfilling our calling and purpose. Justin Banks speaks about how to overcome the anxiety, fears and irrational thoughts that debilitate us. Rather than living in our negativity, Justin speaks about seeing and living with the positives in our lives.


Rather than focusing on the past or our future, Justin puts a focus on KNOWING and LOVING ourselves in the present moment. Justin is an overcomer and a dreamer, and he wants the same for others. He speaks to the person who may have pain and want to turn the pain into power.


Worrying will no longer restrain us. The shackles will be broken and our purpose will be fulfilled.
