Navigating Life Changes - Exploring Life Dreams
Change is a natural part of life, whether it is a change in your job, your relationships, or your business. We tend to navigate these changes by defaulting to old patterns and limited thinking. What if you could make a different choice? What if you could take advantage of the change and design the next phase of your life! And, what if it makes no difference how old you are, your level of education, or your current economic picture? This class explores the innate power and abilities already within you. We will look at opportunities that come our way and the common reasons we get stuck in beliefs about what we are capable of that are simply no longer valid. Using the tried and proven DreamBuilder process, we will explore the possibilities for your life. You will the learn tools for creating a life you design whenever change comes your way. 4 instructional hours.
