1. Personal Strategic Planning
Did you ever wonder
why some people become super achievers, while others only talk
about success and accomplishment? The difference
is not talent, a college education, or rich parents. The' difference
between those who accomplish their dreams and those who dream'
of accomplishing them is that achievers have definite, concrete
goals, and a plan on how to accomplish them. Success begins with
a definition of your goals and objectives, and what you plan to
accomplish. Your dreams are the destinations you want to reach;
your goals are the signposts of accomplishment that define your
path. Your values set the limits for the time and energy that you
choose to expend on any dream of goal. Your strategies are the
tools of accomplishment. This highly interactive, thought provoking
session will help you develop a blueprint for the accomplishment
of the above.

7. Winning Attitudes
What is the difference between a problem and an opportunity? How
you see it! "The longer I live, the more I realize the impact
of attitude on life. Attitude, to me is far more important than
facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than
money, than success, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It
will make or break a company, a church, or a home. The remarkable
thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we
will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past; we cannot
change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot
change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the
one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced
that life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% how I react to
it. And so it is with you, we are in charge of our Attitudes." -C. Swindoll
