Everyone is good at something, but many do not succeed because their ideas stay within their mind. During this course we will dive deep into our innate abilities to discover our dreams. We will then learn how to turn large dreams into smaller, practical goals. By the end, we will formulate a step-by-step plan to bring those dreams to fruition. Let's empower one another to tune into our potential and maximize our time here on earth.

By the end of this course, students will have a handmade dream catcher to symbolize their ability to grasp hold of their dreams. They will also create a vision board and a concrete plan towards one of their dreams.
