Introduction to the course

We all face obstacles, resistance, and doubts as we go through our personal and professional lives. Moreover, it also seems that the bigger the goal, the more hurdles crop up along the way. Some fold under pressure, but many others don’t; they thrive in difficult conditions, and develop the resolve to “soldier on” until they achieve their goals. They leverage their opportunities while overcoming risks, random setbacks, and active opposition. This training course provides essential tools and techniques to master your destiny, improve your resilience and motivation, and build mental toughness you need to achieve your goals.

  • What Resilience Is, Why it’s important, and Why we all need it
  • How to Get Beyond Mere Coping and Survival, and Start Thriving
