About This Class


This class is all about learning how to build RESILIENCE!

Would you like to learn more about what it takes to build resilience? How about how to bounce back from setbacks and personal failures?

This class will attempt to break down what is meant by resilience, and how one can go about building more of it.

We’ll discuss what it feels like when we’re faced with a personal failure or life setback and talk about the first course of action to be taken at that time.

We’ll then focus on the importance of developing a new mindset characterized by a positive and optimistic outlook of the future. Armed with an understanding that whatever you're going through, you should always aim to find a silver lining in your situation and you'll learn to see just how much your mindset matters when faced with a difficult situation.

Most importantly, you will be armed with the best tool of all in building resilience: the understanding that reframing your outlook on life with an attitude that accepts setbacks and failures as opportunities for learning and growth will become your best asset.

See you in class,
