    Mindset Strategies to Boost Your Success

    Are you looking to accelerate your professional growth and success? Did you know that you have a subconscious income figure that acts as an “upper limit ceiling?” In other words, the closer you get to it, the harder and more stressful it becomes. Do you know the exact amount of this ceiling and how much it costs you in terms of wealth, stress and confidence?

    Join Naheed Oberfeld and learn about your hidden success mindset and its impact on your performance. Understanding this will help you shift from Stress to Success!

    In this content-rich session you'll:

    • Uncover your exact unconscious upper limit figure that may be acting as a brake to achieving your professional goals

    • Learn the true impact of these inner beliefs on your professional goals and your well-being

    • Discover the exact reason why you may be feeling stuck, unproductive, or stressed which decreases your energy and impacts you emotionally and physically

    In this workshop you will learn what your upper limit is and the next steps for creating a fulfilling life filled with joy and abundance.
