The Resilience Masterclass
Turn pain into purpose and possibility.
Workshop Date: July 29 from 11 AM to 3 PM
Duration: 4 hours
In 1997, I was incarcerated in a violent California prison. My mom died, my wife left me, and I hit the absolute lowest point of my life. I knew the road ahead was going to be VERY rough.
I knew I’d have a hard time getting good jobs because of my felony drug conviction and because I only had a high school diploma. With my wife gone, I had no place to go when I was released. I’d be paroled to the same toxic environment I was in when I was arrested. I felt like I’d never achieve happiness or success. I believed life was offering me very few possibilities.
My prison experience was the worst thing that happened to me. I later learned that prison and the challenges that came after it were also some of the best things that ever happened to me because these things taught me how to become more resilient.
Resilience is one of the most important life skills. It helps us successfully adapt to adversity, trauma, and tragedy. It gives us the courage, wisdom, and strength to move forward after encountering big setbacks and challenges. It helps us keep a positive attitude, appreciate life, and live a happier, more purposeful life.
Without resilience, we’ll constantly think about things we can’t control, become negative, develop unhealthy coping mechanisms, and feel overwhelmed. In the worst cases, we can develop anxiety, become depressed, obsessively worry, and suffer from physical problems.
Resilience is an odd thing. We can be resilient in some areas of life, but lack resilience in other critical areas of our lives. We can learn lessons and become more resilient in some situations, yet continue to make the same mistakes or allow our negative minds to continually spin out of control and make our lives far more difficult.
Here’s what we’ll cover in this workshop.
Buddhism Meets Western Psychology
Buddha believed a lot of our problems in life are caused by 2 arrows. The first arrow that hits us is a challenge. The second arrow is the story we tell ourselves about that challenge. Our monkey minds oftentimes tell us false stories about our challenges. How many times have you thought something bad would happen and it didn’t? This is our negative minds spinning out of control.
In this workshop, I’ll teach you how to use some concepts from positive and cognitive-behavioral psychology to rewire your brain to see challenges in a more realistic, empowering way. We’ll look at how our brains send us down that negative spiral and how to stop it.
The Power of Mindfulness
Eastern Buddhists were practicing mindfulness well over 2,000 years ago, yet psychologists, researchers, doctors, and life coaches only began integrating it into Western medicine and personal development around 30 years ago. Mindfulness is a critical part of resilience because it helps us become aware of our thoughts, feelings, and emotions. It also helps us make sense of them and regulate them so we’re making the best decisions during the most difficult times.
In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use mindfulness to get more in tune with your inner world so you can manage life’s biggest challenges.
Turning Pain into Purpose & Possibility
While finding purpose in pain is one of the best ways to develop strong resilience, it goes far beyond resilience because finding our true purpose is also the path to happiness, freedom, and living your best life.
Good People Soften the Landing
All of us are ultimately responsible for changing our mindsets and learning the tools we need to become more resilient. But we do need other people to support us when we go thru adversity, trauma, and tragedy in life. It’s possible to get thru these things on our own, without the support of others, but it’s a LOT harder.
I’ll talk about how we can leverage other people to help us thru tough times and help make us more resilient. What if you don’t have family members or friends to support you? I’ll talk about what to do in those situations, too.
Gratitude is a very simple, but powerful part of developing resilience. I talk about it often, but we’ll revisit it and make sure everyone is using this essential tool of resilience.
How can we change our lives in a big way if we don’t set specific, measurable goals? At the end of this workshop, everyone will set their own resilience goals. This will help ensure you have a roadmap to resilience and you’re taking the action necessary to really integrate these critical resilience concepts into your life.
You’ll make a list of goals you want to accomplish so you can make big changes in your life and become happier and more resilient.
Invest in Yourself
Do you want to learn how to master resilience so you have the strength, wisdom, and mindset to deal with life’s biggest challenges? Do you want to learn how to live a happier, more purposeful life?
If you do, join this workshop!
If you’re on the fence about whether or not you want to join this workshop, think about this: the BEST investment you’ll ever make is the investment in YOURSELF. The best investments aren’t cars, clothes, jewelry, electronic devices, food, massages, or even the vacations that give us great memories. Contrary to what many people believe, the best investments aren’t stocks, bonds, or real estate. These things are great for building financial security, but they aren’t nearly as valuable as investing in ourselves. There are a TON of people in the world who are extremely wealthy, but very unhappy because they didn’t invest in their own personal development.
The best investment is the money and time you spend to learn the skills, mindsets, and knowledge you need to live a better life. I’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on my university education, workshops, seminars, books, and other things that helped me on my personal development and educational journey. That money was a small drop in the bucket compared to the knowledge, skills, happiness, fulfillment, resources, and other benefits I got during this journey.
$137 and 4 hours is an extremely small investment compared to the benefits you’ll get from this powerful workshop.
