Secrets to Self-Motivation

Tuesday, August 23 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM MT 

We can do anything we set our minds to. But sometimes it can feel like our brains are working against us when it comes to achieving our goals. Plans to learn a new skill, to get in shape or to save money keep getting pushed back in the hopes that the Future You will handle it “someday.” 

Your attitude and beliefs about your likelihood of success can predict whether or not you actually succeed. If you actively keep your internal motivation high, you can significantly increase the likelihood of achieving your hopes, dreams and visions of your future.

Happiness: A Key to Life’s Satisfaction

Thursday, August 25 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM MT

Why do some people seem happy and others just seem miserable all the time? Science suggests that each person has a range in their capacity to experience happiness and that range is different for each person. However, it is possible to live our lives in the upper end of that range if we apply ourselves and follow certain principles. There is no one key to happiness but a set of principles that are critical to follow. This session incorporates a brief happiness questionnaire, a description of the various factors associated with happiness and concludes with a substantive discussion of specific ways to increase your happiness potential.
