Have you ever felt that you don't measure up? Far too many of us feel trapped in a 24/7 hamster wheel of hustle culture, no matter our age, income, or profession. In a world that increasingly tells us the answer to virtually any problem is more - it is all too easy to believe that the amount of money you earn, accomplishments you achieve, or praise you receive is never enough. That you are never enough. In this enlightening webinar, author Manisha Thakor will provide the antidote to this destructive, never-enough mindset - so you can reclaim yourself and your life joyfully. You will learn the following:

  • What causes so many of us to yearn for - yet struggle to - feel the empowerment of "enough."
  • How two simple equations can help you shift from surviving as a human "doing" to thriving as a human "being."
  • Why - counterintuitively - "achieving less" may be the most direct path to a vibrant life
