The 5 Vital Elements of a Vibrant Life

VIBRANT means ENERGETIC, BRIGHT, & LIVELY. (Lively means intelligent, excited and full of spirit) This program helps you understand what makes you tick! It takes COURAGE to know yourself well and to live life being EXACTLY who you were meant to be. You are not born knowing yourself. You do not get to know yourself simply by growing up and growing old. Knowing yourself is a conscious effort; you do it with intention and purpose. We will identify the number one barrier between you and your dreams and how to be more decisive. We will also discover the two way action that makes life richer. The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to blame. The gift is yours — it is an amazing journey — and you are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life begins

It's What I've Been Up To.

Confidence & Communication Skills for Success

Often times we compare ourselves to others and create a slippery slope that leads to our own destruction. In this eye-opening session, we look at the long term damage of the comparison trap and develop a list of our own strengths. We will look at ways to banish our, “inner critic,” and honor our well being. As we look at verbal boundaries, deal-breakers and saying no, we will learn a 3 step strategy for dealing with negative people. We will discover some startling statistics about worry and embrace the techniques necessary to physically, mentally and emotionally project the project a positive image that leaves a lasting impression.

 

 

How to Keep Mean People From Hijacking Your Day

When people are mean to us, it catches us off guard. We don't deserve it and it is confusing how to handle it. In this session we apply  a strategy using the acronym of DEAL. DECIDE how much you are willing to put up with. EXPECT mean people. Who knows why folks act the way they do? You cannot control that, however, you can have a pre-made plan for when they show up in your world. ASK questions or ask for what you need to stop. And lastly, LAUGH. Laugh it off! Sometimes that's all you can do to preserve your own sanity.

In the process of striving for super star success we identify the number one strategy for creating a positive memory. Using a metaphor of, “At the Movies,” we utilize discussions, role play and self-discovery tools to improve our service standards.

 

 

Maximum Solutions to Minimize Stress

Stress is to the human condition what tension is to the violin string: too little & the music is dull and raspy; too much & the music is shrill or the string snaps. Its an artful balance between good & bad stress. ~ The Stress Solution by Lyle H. Miller, Ph.D. Stress becomes dangerous when it interferes with your ability to live a normal life for an extended period of time. Stressors are more likely to affect an individual's health when they are "chronic, highly disruptive, or perceived as uncontrollable"  In this session, we examine a TOP 10 LIST for navigating and managing the stressors in our life.
