Reaching Potential Series

Are you struggling to find motivation?  Do you find yourself questioning if the path you are on is the right one for you?  Have you caught yourself constantly comparing yourself to others?  Are you feeling overwhelmed?  Would you like to learn techniques that could improve your overall well-being? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then you should sign up for a School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) Reaching Potential Series Session! These sessions are designed to enhance your overall satisfaction with your life and your college experience and are available to students outside SPEA as well.

Sessions Topics Will Include:

  • Happiness: What factors can make a lasting change to your happiness levels?  How to identify intentional activities that lead to meaning.  Tools and tips for activities to raise your happiness level.
  • Motivation: What are the driving forces of why we do what we do?  What environments and circumstances promote optimal motivation?  Effects of motivation or lack thereof on performance.
  • Overwhelmed: How to identify personal pitfalls in thinking as well as behaviors that may increase your feeling of stress, frustration and anger. Various techniqueswill be demonstrated in session: ACTIVE PARTICIPATION IS REQUIRED.

You have always had the ability to control how your perceptions of the world around you determine the state of mind in which you live.  You can choose to follow others (who may be just as confused as you are) or you can take the skills in these sessions to create your own path.  You may not be able to change what happens to you; however, you may become better equipped to successfully deal with whatever may come your way.
