Pathways to Successful Living Seminars


The Pathways to Successful Living Basic Seminar is a four-day experience that offers you the opportunity to challenge yourself to go beyond your current level of success and discover more of who you are and what you truly can be.

Students learn skills to understand and develop their true potential through a wide variety of educational methods including:

One-on-One Exercises
Small Group Exercises

The Basic Seminar provides an opportunity to explore the beliefs, attitudes and behaviors that currently promote or limit your success and fulfillment.  You will gain an in-depth understanding of how you act, inter-act and react in all relationships in order to do more of what works and less of what doesn't - along with an increased passion and commitment to making a difference in your life and the lives of others.

At the end of four days you will:

  • Experience increased clarity and focus regarding major goals and life decisions

  • Gain greater intimacy and connection with the people who matter to you most

  • Enhance communication skills to help create greater support and teamwork in all areas of life

  • Experience greater confidence in dealing with challenges and adversity

Each student experiences additional benefits based upon their personal circumstances.

Course Syllabus

The Basic Seminar is approximately 37 hours of training which include the following concepts: 1) identifying the components of success; 2) examining how we increase or sabotage our own success; 3) identifying goals; and, 4) creating concrete steps to reach those goals at work and at home.
