If you are striving for a change in your life, but are unsure of how to bring it about, if you are frustrated about your lack of progress, if you feel indifferent and unmotivated, if you procrastinate or feel “stuck”, if you want to kick a bad habit, or acquire a new healthier one, then this workshop is for you.
As human beings we all share one trait; we all want to improve our lot in life. Few of us are blessed with the self-confidence and single-mindedness that drives us to achieve our resolutions just as we’ve planned them. However, most of us lead our lives with a constant feeling that there is a lot more we could be doing: that we can ascend to much higher levels in our careers, that we can achieve more fulfilling relationships with our loved ones, and that we can do a lot more towards attaining improvements in our wellbeing, our physical fitness, our nutrition, and our stress level. Yet these higher levels of self-realization often remain elusive. We feel that there is something that is stopping us from actualizing our full potential, but we do not really know what it is, much less what to do about it.
In this workshop, you will learn a few simple, yet highly effective, neuroscience-based interventions that will help you strengthen your willpower, overcome undesirable habits, adopt new beneficial habits, meet your goals with a higher rate of success, and become a better version of yourself!

1.Introduction to Personal and Professional Change
2.The Willpower Muscle
3.Mindfulness –A Powerful Tool for Change
4.Laying the Foundations for Change
5.The Habit Loop: Cue-Behavior-Reward
6.Surf The Urge
