Henry Ford once said "Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right."

There are two types of truth in the world. A certain set, we'll call it "Type One," is immune to human thought. Gravity works, every time, whether you believe in it or not. Another type, we'll call it "Type Two," is the kind of belief that becomes true if enough people share it (at least until they change their minds). Call it a self-fulfilling prophecy. Most people think that the world is largely governed by Type One truth, and while this may be true in the hard sciences, in the realm of human activity, Type Two truth is much more applicable. Consider market bubbles, social change like the Civil Rights Movement or the Fall of the Berlin Wall, and placebo effects. In this webinar, you will learn how to make Type Two truths work for you by increasing your confidence, clarity and resiliency.
