Those who master the power of positive thinking are the victors of life. They know how to step up to the challenges and opportunities of life with the courage, determination, and wisdom to win the private and public victories.  Mastery does not happen by accident. It is a process that occurs as we interact effectively with the events and circumstances of our lives. Each moment of our lives provides an opportunity to practice mastery by expanding our visions, awakening the faculties of our minds and our hearts, and assuming full responsibility for living, growing, and contributing.            

People who attend this course will learn a set of principles that will change the way they view their lives as well as their performance on the job. They will grow in self-understanding, confidence, personal effectiveness and their ability to handle the challenges and opportunities of the workplace. This approach to change is not a quick fix. However, during this programme you will learn principles and participate in exercises that will allow you to truly become master of your own life.
