Having It All, But Not at the Same Time

Women who have a “Be the Perfect Driver” outlook are bound to be disappointed.  In our busy lives, if we see ourselves as having and doing it all at the same time to be perfection, failure is all that we will get. 

Superman is a fictional character and so is Superwoman. 

If we strive for excellence in certain domains at different times, such as happiness, achievement, and significance, we can leave a legacy of a life well lived.   

What You Will Learn


For a full hour, this program will explore:

  • An assessment of what “having it all” is NOT
  • Techniques of creating your day with gratitude and acknowledgement
  • Looking at the power of language to change a problem into a challenge
  • Having the ability to view your life as reasonably content with moments of ecstasy
  • Devices of modeling, mentoring, and monitoring to move you toward excellence

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
