INNER STRENGTH TRAINING

Wednesday January 29, 11am-12:00pm
Location: Genesis Entrepreneurship Centre, Main Campus, Room SC128

We go to the gym, eat healthy foods and hire expensive personal trainers all to improve our outer strength. Deep down we all know that inner strength is a million times more important than outer strength but what are we doing to improve our inner strength? In this workshop you will learn how. If we develop more inner strength, we can:

  • Allow our bodies to operate at maximum efficiency
  • Have the courage to heal from our past
  • Deal with any situation that we are presented with, no matter how bad other people perceive it to be
  • Stop people pleasing and get aligned with our true purpose
  • Heal from apparent diseases
  • Maximize our potential
  • Overcome stress and anxiety
  • This workshop is about helping people move up the scale of consciousness, so they can develop more resilience and inner strength. It is never about what is going on out there and it is always about what is going on in here (within you). At this workshop students will create awareness around what is going within and how they can overcome it. Facilitated by David Haas, Certified Coach.

LUNCH & LEARN: HOW TO ACHIEVE ANYTHING YOU DESIRE

Thursday January 30, 12:00pm-1:00pm
Location: Genesis Entrepreneurship Centre, Main Campus, Room SC128

Why is it only a few a handful of people in this world learn how to execute at an extremely high level? Jeff Bezos for example is able to achieve more in a decade than thousands of people are able to achieve collectively, in a life time. What separates these super achievers from us? It is not intelligence or having access to money or being in the right place at the right time. The difference between people like Bezos and us, is an innate ability to silence the inner voice that is constantly telling us to stay in our comfort zones. At this workshop you will learn how to create awareness around this inner voice, be introduced to the concept of ego and how it is designed to keep you safe, and learn tools that will allow you to overcome these limiting belief system forever. After attending this workshop you will have the knowledge required to achieve more in a day than most people do in a month. Presented by David Haas, Certified Coach. Light lunch included. Open to St. Clair College Students and Alumni only please. Generously sponsored by the St. Clair College Student Representative Council (SRC).
