Achieve Your Life Goals With Success Coach App

Success Wizard, Inc. has released a complete redesign of its comprehensive life coaching system recommended by iPhone and iPad users worldwide. The unique app was designed to help people develop a plan and accomplish their most important goals, track their progress, and make positive life changes.

“You start by identifying your long-term Goals in each area of your life, then breaking them down into Milestones, and only then creating a detailed Action Plan that includes Activities, Habits, and Routines,” explains Yuval Goren, founder and CEO of Success Wizard. “You come out of this process with a detailed plan that you can start executing daily – no other app can do that for you so quickly, elegantly, and comprehensively.”


Everything in the app has been refined to enable a person to achieve what they most desire. The built-in ‘Morning Routine’ offers focus to make each day most productive, while the ‘Evening Routine’ helps reflect and learn from the day’s experiences and plan for tomorrow. The Personal Habits scheduler helps form new habits and routines that create a positive impact on a person’s life and well-being. There is also a Notepad to jot down ideas, questions and notes throughout the day, as well as a personal Journal to record thoughts and insights. At any time, a user can review progress towards his or her goals and see past performance and stats. And the new Team Collaboration feature lets a person share goals and activities with others.


Together, these features ensure that the user’s focus of time and energy is on the most significant things – the person’s true goals – and not just a random list of tasks. Success Wizard Coach is about Clarity, Focus, and Getting Things Done, while enjoying a happier and fulfilling life.


“The new design and powerful features come directly from the amazing feedback we’ve received from our users, who are utilizing the app to realize all of their dreams and aspirations,” says Goren. “Define your targets, and follow an effective plan to accomplish your most meaningful life goals – that is Success Wizard in a nutshell.”
