Stop the Fear in You from Stifling the Best in You

Why Mindfulness is the Key to Living Up to Your Potential

We all have the power to make a significant contribution. Yet, instead of living up to our potential, too many of us allow negative expectations and a fear of judgment to cause us to play it small instead of pursuing our dreams. Still, self-doubt is part of the human condition. Therefore, how do we combat our non-productive thoughts so that we can be all that we can be?

The answer is mindfulness. There’s a reason why so many Fortune 100 companies are including it in their training curricula. Research has shown that being mindful is linked to greater self-awareness, increased productivity, enhanced emotional intelligence, better relationships, boosted creativity, and improved self-confidence.

In this talk, Patricia teaches the audience how mindfulness will make them more effective in the business world. By discussing examples from her work as an executive coach with clients, to sharing her own story in which she went from a painfully shy youth who turned down every opportunity to be in the spotlight, to a successful entrepreneur and public speaker, Patricia highlights how applying mindfulness principles will help you to deal with self-doubt, manage stress, and maximize your impact in the world.
