G.R.O.W.T.H (Gradual Reminder Obstacles Will Test Hope)
During this time in our history, it has never been more important that we learn how to wrap our thoughts around what our future will become. The experiences within the last year, or what I’ve termed as, “The Perfect Storm,” has given us the opportunity to slow down and think about where do we go from here.
In part of doing so, we had the chance to complete a self-assessment of our past, present and future goals. This transformation was necessary to understand the process of our personal GROWTH (Gradual Reminder Obstacles Will Test Hope).
This also gave us insight by experiencing unpredictable events that, now we recognize as being temporary situations by directing our paths toward reaching the levels we are destined to reach. In other words, “Comfort is a Casualty of Growth,” and each and every one of us shall be placed in the position to GROW FORWARD in 2021
Participants will leave not just energized for the moment, but with the passion to understand that 2020 was “The Perfect Storm.” Will give revisit the inner strength to plan, prepare and harness the positive mindset that always lives within.
