Positive Tune-Up: 16 Signs That You Are More Successful Than You Think (webinar)

Competency: Personal/Interpersonal Skills

Sub-Category: Maintains a positive attitude and sets an example for others
to follow

We've all had moments in our
lives where we feel, regardless of what is really true, that we have nothing
positive going for us.

 It's too easy to criticize ourselves in just about
anything-from our competence in our work to how we deal with situations at
home-and this can make it easy to become blinded to our own successes in life.

It can be easy to believe that
you are somehow failing, even when all the evidence in your life-personally and
professionally-points to other conclusions.

Did you ever consider that you could already be successful and
just not realize it?

Join us for this interactive
and informative webinar and see how successful
you really are in life!
