Speaking topics:

The Power of Attitude, Talent or Willpower
Inner-strength, personal growth or positive attitude as tools for success. How can we reset our attitude from within to challenge adversity? Can we succeed without talent?

Commitment 8-10
How committed are you towards achieving your goals? How much time and effort are you willing to invest, and what are you willing to sacrifice? These are some key questions we should ask ourselves before setting our goals. Be loyal to your commitments and strengthen your self-esteem.

Change Management
Change triggers stress. The best opportunities in life may lay behind them both, so learning to manage their effects on our minds and body is of paramount importance.

The Theory of the Spiral of Optimism and Self-leading
Happiness is subjective. Many of us spend our entire life searching for this intangible asset whilst being unaware of life’s smallest details. Each of us are responsible for developing our own Spiral of Optimism and Happiness.
