Diamonds or Dust : How to shine under pressure while others fall apart?

Stressed? Short on time?  Short of breath?  Tired of being tired? What happened to your passion for life? Why do some people shine under pressure while others fall apart? The secret lies in learning to harvest your own personal resilience.

Join Dr Amir Georges Sabongui, PhD, for this dynamic, interactive, and inspiring seminar.  You will discover how to rekindle your energy and passion, take back control of your life, and transform stress into a potential ally.

You will learn: 

  •  How to avoid the number 1 mistake that almost EVERYONE makes; What resilient people naturally do to bounce back from adversity, and why they actually SEEK OUT stress and use it to their advantage;
  • Why doing less will NOT fix the problem;
  • How to recognize the warning signs and the impact that stress is having on your physical and mental health, and what to do about it.

Then … ACTION! Thanks to concrete and creative strategies, you will develop your own dash-board to monitor your physical, mental and emotional health, and build a personalized action plan to get you back to your optimal self. By the end of the seminar, you will already notice a radical change. You will feel like you can shine under pressure like a diamond, instead of falling apart like dust!
