WRK227H Finding Optimism In Challenging Times

[0–0, 0 cr.]

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. Viktor Frankl. During your journey of living, and as you encounter beautiful uplifting moments, you are not exempt from reality! You are not exempt from a certain kind of challenge that will be part of your life at some point, be it on personal level or collective level. Finding optimism in said situations is a challenge by itself. You being prepared to deal with it and develop it are crucial for your life process. During the workshop, you will be subject to:

  • Assessing if there is optimism in challenges, and if yes, how can you reach it and live by it
  • Exploring if you are chained when a challenge arise or you are free
  • Discovering the main element that plays the “Game Changer” role in overcoming challenges
  • Finding optimism in challenging times
  • Exploring if the handling is the same for everyone or is it unique for each person
