Seminar: Finding Your Inner Genius - Working from the Inside Out
Presenter - Bernadette Willems - Greater Manchester Mediation
You really do have everything you need to thrive and be happy and healthy, but you do not know or realise it. When you find yourself stuck, or facing a situation that feels out of your control or
insurmountable, what do you do? You strive, you battle, you work harder. You might blame your situation or circumstances. You then try to change the world around you. But then you get disappointed when things do not turn out the way you expected and worse still, you get more of the same. It does not have to be this way. Ask yourself a better set of questions and discover your inner genius. With a greater understanding of how your mind works, what you really want
and why you want it, you open up a world of untapped potential and possibility, your unique gifts, your inner genius. You are then able to take action and achieve success without fear of failure.
