Person standing on top of mountain - text overlay reads: 2021: Easier said than done - the foundation of motivation webinar
January 20, 2021
Online - Link will be sent after registration
13:00 - 14:00

Need to discover the foundations of motivation? This webinar will focus on motivation, self-confidence, and building self-esteem.

We know that staying motivated can be challenging - we're only human, after all! But reaching your goals doesn't mean you aren't allowed to have moments of weakness, or doubt. What is important is how we overcome this, and get back on track in working towards success.

Remember, your goals are unique to you - your version of success may be completely different to someone else's version of success. 

Join our webinar to learn some tools and techniques about staying motivated, and ensuring that your practices are embedded in your everyday life.

This webinar will approximately have a 45-minute presentation, followed by opportunities for Q&A. Come prepared with your questions that you would like to find out on the day!
