Thank you for inquiring about Success Panel today.  I’m confident your group will experience exponential growth from each session. Success Panel  is quickly becoming  “the event” for serious students interested in success habits. Our team lead by Mrs. Kimberly Dellafosse has put together some outstanding programs.

The attributes you see and admire in other people are always available to you. They are ever present, waiting for you, whenever you decide to activate and deploy them for your benefit and for the benefit of others. We focus on delivering programs to impact these attributes. 

Success Panels are one hour sessions that help motivate, energize and educate students in targeted disciplines. Our team of professionals moderate each session which includes leaders in specific fields.  Here are some of the programs we offer (list is not all inclusive):

1. Smart Money, Smart Kids (Why & How To Invest)

2. Success Grows From Excellence

3. Your Community Needs You

4. Girls’ Lives Matter: Discovering the greatness of being a young woman

5. Increase Your Commas: Manage Your Money and Grow Your Money (The Basics)

6. Launching Pad: Discover What It Takes To Start Your Own Business

7. Boys’ Lives Matter: Discovering Your Purpose in the World

Attitude: The ability to choose an optimistic, empowered attitude is available to you right now. The fact that you are capable of producing this state sometimes is evidence that it is available to you at all times. If I told you that you just won the Lottery, you would immediately find yourself in this state, regardless of any other external events. You can choose that state now.

Beliefs: The ability to change your beliefs is ever present. You can change your mind about something any time you want to. At some point in time, you shed your childish beliefs. You still hold beliefs that no longer serve, and some that never really did. You can change those beliefs as soon as you become aware of them and bravely embrace something new.

Focus: You have the ability to give your full and undivided attention to someone or something. The ability to block out the infinite distractions that vie for your limited time and attention is wholly within your control. Whenever you decide that something is important enough to do with impeccable care, you can focus and make it so.

Compassion: You can exercise compassion. The ability to assume others are acting out of good intentions is a super power when it comes to maintaining a positive, optimistic outlook. You can forgive, and you can help those who need help.

None of these choices is forbidden you. You were born with access to all of them. All that is left for you to do is to decide to exercise them.
