  • align your daily activities with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose
  • become more relaxed, confident, and at ease in high-pressure situations
  • shatter limitations that have been immune to “the power of positive thinking”
  • create better relationships at work and at home
  • turn conflict into opportunity
