Discover the Top 3 Mindset Habits of High Achievers | Carla Rieger

Avicenna Holistic Centre

CA$12.00

THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU IF … • You are procrastinating on tasks that would really move your business forward • You get derailed by thoughts of “not enough” – not enough time, money, support • You are feeling overwhelmed and confused about the right actions to take WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION Come and join us on Tuesday evening, June 18 and learn from Carla Rieger on how to build the habits of a high achieving entrepreneur. One reason over 50% of businesses fail is because the business owner gave up too soon. They were too problem focused and fearful of making mistakes. Top achievers have simple daily habits to bounce back quickly from setbacks, instead of drowning in regret for a long time. They stay solutions-oriented and adaptive in the face of challenges, instead of feeling defeated by them. We call these resilient people “Change Artists”. The skills of a Change Artist don’t actually need to be learned. They are innate skills that you just need to remember to access. These practices require little or no time or money, and simply train your brain to stay in as high a performance state as possible, no matter what is going on around you. TAKEAWAYS During this entertaining, engaging and practical session you will discover how to: • Build and maintain your vision when faced with seemingly impossible situations • Help yourself and others move from being reactive to proactive under pressure • Activate your ability to perform your best no matter what SPEAKER’S BIO Carla Rieger is the Co-Founder of MindStory Academy, an international online school, teaching business owners how to access genius levels of thinking and how to communicate their offerings in powerful ways that get results.
