This session will streamline the importance of seeing the potholes on the road of life and learning to navigate the road to better avoid and rise above them. We all have roadblocks that seem to want to stop us from getting anywhere. What do you do when you stumble across a rock in the road so big that it takes up both lanes? What are your immediate thoughts? To swear? Get Frustrated? Turn and leave?

This session will help you change your thinking pattern to flip that switch in your brain and knock that load off your path. There is no pothole big enough to stop your trailblazing once you've changed your approach to the problem. Kathy will use her personal story of overcoming a lifetime of trauma and abuse, alcoholism, and homelessness to now driving the largest mining truck in the world, to demonstrate to you the power of positive thinking. Her book, Dream Big, and personal story will inspire all who attend this session and motivate all to overcome any obstacle that may arise on their path. Attend this session to:

  • Address your causes of potholes (problems in your life)
  • Learn to navigate your steering to avoid or fix your problems (critical thinking toolbox)
  • Safely rise above the challenges (create new outcomes based on new habits)
