Program Summary

Sometimes life gets the better of us, and we ask "Whose life is it anyway?" When you stop living for yourself, and live only for everyone else, something is missing! In this humorous keynote, Rhonda shares that not only do we all experience this feeling – it's OK to be frustrated! Learn how to stay away from contagious negativity, look at life through a positive focus and stop blaming (whether it is the economy, government, organization or just bad luck!) For those people that do this naturally, they will learn additional skills to keep on top! Take control of your own life is the message – and through realistic, easy and fun approaches to change, Rhonda leaves everyone laughing about life, instead of crying – but most importantly, with the knowledge on how to get back the life we want to have!

You Will Learn

To take control of your life by focusing on the positives.
