Knowledge Level & Prerequisite: Beginner (1-2 years in the profession)
Field of Study: Personal Development
CPE Credit: 1.0

Join Sara Safari as she takes you up the mountain with her... Sara will share her stories, both daunting and humorous, that also impart leadership tools.

Every day we are dealing with different obstacles to reach our goals. Sometimes, these hurdles look like huge mountains to climb. Getting a promotion at work, achieving your educational goals, and maintaining good relationships with our loved ones are examples of challenges we deal with on a daily basis. We are all capable of overcoming our fears and climbing all these mountains if we believe 'there is no limit to human potential, there is only limit in human belief!'. This is a motivational talk to empower and inspire people to look at life differently and positively.
Learning Objectives:

  • Making friends with your failures
  • Learn to embrace your fears and push yourself out of your comfort zone
