In our adolescence, we learn about the meaning of success from adults. But what we learn is not necessarily true, and it is not necessarily applicable to our personality. Our learned interpretation of success is heavily impacted by our mentors' traumas and their desire for us to be a better version of them, instead of the best possible version of ourselves. In my presentation, I will walk you through the red flags to watch out for when you evaluate your learned criteria for success – and most importantly, I will teach you how to let go of envy, how select qualified mentors, and how to be your own best expert on finding your way to the ultimate success – being yourself, professionally and personally. Tone: Thoughtful, dynamic, and tailored toward the audience (I do read the room and adjust the tone accordingly). Target audience: College students, professionals. Format: The program can be delivered as a keynote presentation or an interactive workshop.
