Introduction of Listen To Your Heart and Success Will Follow Concepts

This lesson is an introduction into the concept that you can take control of your life and reinvent a lifestyle that's more enjoyable, balanced, and productive. Today you'll get a taste of the powerful tools, strategies, systems, and solutions in this course that will help guide you toward discovering, creating, and implementing your heartfelt desires. This will be your inspiration to begin creating a life you'll love!

Key #1: Accept That You Must Let Go Of Your Past

This lesson will address the first key toward happiness, which is letting go of the past. It will discuss how to accept change and turn it into an opportunity by learning how to take control of your life. You'll learn strategies for how to cope with the stress and anxiety that change brings and then go over some tips you can use to guide you in establishing new boundaries and how to honor them.

Key #2: Take A Close Look At Your Previous Endeavors

In this lesson, you'll examine what choices you've made in the past, particularly in regard to lifestyle, relationships, and career. You'll evaluate these choices and see what worked, what didn't work, and what you would like to have happened.

Key #3: Get To Know Yourself Really Well

This lesson could be a turning point for you because it's all about getting to know yourself really well. Once you can get clear about who you are (your skills, aptitudes, gifts, talents, passions, desires, needs, and values), you'll be able to strengthen your personal foundation and thus design a high-quality life.

Key #4: Align Your Head With Your Heart

In this lesson, you'll begin finding your way to a place where your head is in harmony with your heart. This place is built upon the solid foundation of your values, special skills, and unique gifts. Today, you'll tap into your imagination faculties to start creating whatever your heart desires. You'll discover how to separate yourself from the "mind-stuff" that keeps you blocked from achieving your dreams.

How To Get What You Really Want

This lesson is about goal setting. Many people have goals but aren't able to manifest them. There's a good reason for that, and today you'll learn what you need to do achieve your goals and them into realities. You deserve to be happy in all areas of your life, and this lesson is the next step in getting there!

Key #5: Enjoy the Journey

In this lesson, you'll explore some tools and strategies you can use to help overcome your fears. Although being fearful is natural, it can also be debilitating. Fear causes many people to live lives they wish they weren't living. By the time, you finish this lesson, you'll understand how to keep fear from preventing you from designing your life to be everything you want it to be.

Build A Community That Supports Your Well-Being

Everyone longs for a heartfelt kind of connection that gives them a sense of belonging—a desire to be seen and heard by others, to know that they matter, to know that someone is on their side, and to feel a connection that touches the heart and makes them feel grateful for someone's presence. This lesson will focus on the idea that the people you spend time with need to support your well-being.

Life 101 - Suggestions for a Happier Life

"Lighten up!" That's what this lesson is all about. You don't always have to be serious. When was the last time you had a really good laugh? When was the last time you laughed at yourself? This lesson will discuss the importance of humor. You'll go over the steps to reducing the frustrations that develop from too much stress. The lesson will talk about the value of meditation, time management, and how to create your own health team.

Everyone Is Self-Employed

This lesson will talk about the key to working happily. It's also the key to becoming a more valued employee. An important concept to accept is that everyone is really self-employed—they're all responsible for their own personal development. This lesson will guide you toward achieving new skills that will help you rise above the pack.

When Change is Inevitable

Sometimes you need to find a new job in order to be happy. If this is your situation, there are some things you can do to make the process more effective and increase the possibility you'll find the work you want. Once you've completed the exercises in this class and you've spent some time reflecting about what you really want from your work, you're ready to take a proactive approach to finding the ideal job. This lesson will assist you in this process.

Your New Life

You'll start to notice that the quality of your life improves dramatically as you spend your time and energy on what really matters to you. Your confidence will increase, peace of mind will take over, and you'll feel empowered to live life on your own terms.
