We at GLEPE are pleased to announce we have added an additional speaker to our schedule of guest speakers.
Note the updated schedule below.
Are you Self Reliant or still Dependent?
Presented by Chriss with Great Lakes Self Reliance.
Life is all about the choices we make. One choice is: being Self-Reliant or being Dependent. Choosing to be Dependent often causes one to be a victim of those they rely on. Take your chances or take control of your life. Taking more responsibility for your life starts with a commitment to change your thinking, your perspective, habits and even lifestyle. Being Self-reliant can be very empowering and can build one’s self-confidence and self-esteem, which are the mindsets for success in life. Are YOU self-reliant? This is not a yes or no question, but a continuum. Nearly everyone is both, but now discover ways in which you could be even more Self-reliant, why, and how… so that you won’t be the next victim!
