Magic of the Mind with Faith Wood

For many of us, we know more about our weaknesses then our strengths. And when we focus on the negative we have
a way of repelling opportunity, confidence and magic. In this seminar, Faith will demonstrate and share some strategies
for influencing your mind the way a high-performance athlete/leader trains their brain to perform. We can all find
ourselves speaking harshly inside the privacy of our own mind. Sadly, this tendency can be at the root of our doubts,
hesitations and feelings of inadequacy. This hour could change all that for good – just like magic!
