How to Get Anything You Want Out of Life - Larry Forman

What do you want in life? Money? Fame? Love? Marriage? Success? A job? What would you do if I told you that it can be yours? Perception is reality. We can be our own worst enemies because most of us choose to cage ourselves in our own realities. Your mind has unlimited potentialYou can harness its power and utilize it to get anything you want. Come listen to Larry Forman speak on our own personal mental boxes and learn how to escape them and the vicious loop of negative emotion. You will learn how to set goals and achieve anything the mind can conceive. Remember that no goal is too extreme, and no objective is out of reach. See you there, my friends. Sponsored by Hillel.
 
The meeting will be held on Thursday September 20 at Noon in room 175. Bring your own lunch.
